I have only DNF'ed two books in my life; one is documented here, the other is documented in my head as the author is a super famous and beloved by millions. This came close to being my third DNF, but I endeavor to finish what I start these days, so I kept reading. The author is talented and knows how to spin a tale. She even knows how to keep you guessing and stay reading even when you don't want to. It's her main character, Jane Taylor, that is the problem. She is self-absorbed, a narcissist, and a pathological liar. The only thing I can commend her on is the fact that for nine months she managed to fool just about every person she knew into believing that she was pregnant! Only her best friend and his husband {whom she had a not-so-rosy relationship with} knew that she was pulling one over on everyone. Oh, sorry, the supposed father knew as well, but I won't give away how he found out. I felt sorry for Jane in a way because she truly believed that no one cared about her except for David. She had a very rocky relationship with her mother and sister {to whom she was absolutely BRUTAL to}, most of the people at work didn't care for her...she was just so unlikable for the reasons stated above. Anyone who would choose a fake pregnancy over the first person she supposedly had fallen in love with, who wanted to marry her, is insane. Honestly, I had to stop reading at that point for a bit to cool down as I just could not believe she chose her web of lies over true love. The author likes using words you've never heard of; meaning, you're going to need a dictionary, Wikipedia, and a thesaurus in order to figure out what she was trying to say. The second thing that I detested was how Jane would go back and forth between saying baby and fetus. That was incredibly annoying. Pick a term and stick with it! Even though this book was challenging to read, I downloaded the follow-up book to see if Jane Taylor gets what's coming to her when she has to tell everyone the truth as her "pregnancy" has run the course.
