Book Review - Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken

ABOUT THE BOOK


Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world.
Welcome to the Jungle.


As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the "good girl." The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot... only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.

The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment... with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage.

Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.

And then there's Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever.

In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell - though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss.

Strap on your stilettos, it's about to get wild.

Based on true stories and events.

REVIEW


This book is written by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken.  Yes, THAT Kathy Ireland.  The book has a unique pace, bouncing around between four main characters' points of view and between the past and present.  While it did take a bit of time to follow the pace and structure of the book, it really works for this story.  Knowing that the events are based on true stories make the book that much more interesting and also tragic.  For fans of Rachel Van Dyken, this is a very different type of story than she generally tells, but again it works, which is a credit to her writing abilities.  I went in this as a fan of Van Dyken's, and not really caring about fashion at all, but still was very interested in the subject and the story throughout.  I recommend for anyone who enjoys Women's Fiction and is looking for something a little different than their usual read.


OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
