Review- The Anatomy of Jane by Amelia LeFay



I’ve always been on my own. My life used to consist of nothing but work, keeping Allen out of trouble, and if I had time, sleep. Then I became their maid. 


Every day more than half a million people tune in to watch my show. They trust me. I know it’s because I’m the only son of the prominent Emerson family. However, I like to believe it because I’m honest no matter what story I report on. I’m honest about everything but the man I’ve been f**king for the last four years… and now her. 


First I want three things: First Maxwell Emerson and Jane Chapman both in my bed. Second, to be the best bloody chef in the country. Third, to figure out how to simultaneously get the first and second things I want without any of us getting hurt.

I have to admit that reading a book like The Anatomy of Jane by Amelia LeFay is a first time for me. I like romances more on the sweeter side. I didn't know what to expect and frankly, I didn't have any high hopes that I'd enjoy myself but curiosity got the better of me. Amelia LeFay is actually the pen name for J.J.McAvoy whose books I've read and enjoyed and I actually ended up really liking The Anatomy of Jane.

So, as you can probably guess from the cover and summary this book is about a ménage, a completely new territory for me and I had no idea how the dynamics would work between three. But Amelia LeFay puts all doubts to rest and the story somehow works beautifully with just the right amount of everything. Jane, Max and Wes are characters with strong and distinctive personalities and each brings something to the table.

Let's start with Jane. Jane is a hard working and free spirited girl who has had a rough life. She's always been on her own and now she's working as a maid. When she accidentally stumbles upon Max and Wes everything changes. I liked Jane and how she was not at all judgemental about anyone. She had the strength to stand up to Max and Wes and that was something.

Max comes from a conservative and powerful family. He's been in a relationship with Wes since the past four years but hasn't been able to come out with it. Max was the secretive one, a hard ass who didn't give in easily. Wes on the other hand is his complete opposite. Wes is a well known chef in the country. He knows he loves Max but he can't deny the same connection he feels with Jane. Wes is the one who is actually willing to take the leap and give the relationship between the three a shot.

I don't even have to say it but I will. The steamy scenes between these three were blush worthy. There is a lot of passion but there is also a lot of depth behind each person and that is what surprised me. There is actually a story going on and just when you think these three will get the happy ending they deserve the author pulls out the rug from under our feet. Its safe to say I am beyond desperate to get my hands on the next book to see what happens with these three. I don't know how to put it in words exactly but The Anatomy of Jane was a surprisingly good read for me.
