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.
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.


3.5 Stars
ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Don't start this book thinking it's just any old book, because it's not. It's a steamy MMF that will make you drop everything you had planned to read and then hang over your head as you desperately wait for book two to release. Trust me, I would know, it's how I'm feeling right now. Jane is mouthy, vibrant, and very unaware of her natural charm. Max is spoiled, bossy, and hiding from the truth. Wesley is successful, desirable, and fighting for the person who matters the most to him. Together they make WJM, together they have chemistry and passion, their heat lapping at you from the pages. I really enjoyed all three characters, but especially Jane and her desire to do good for others. This book is much more than just an MMF erotica though, the characters have lives, pasts, careers, and passions that weave the story into one of reality than that of fantasy. There's extensive talk of societal norms that I truly appreciated and the rotating POV of all three characters provided a very in depth look at how a relationship works, especially for those in the public eye. 

"You can't like two people equally," she whispered as I leaned into her. "Watch me."

I would have liked this book a lot more had there been more development in a few areas, including the political aspects and how Jane really worked with Wesley and Max. I loved Maxwell's career, but I felt like I was missing out on some of his past and his drive as a political media leader. Then there's his relationship with Max, that just works, but how Jane fits in fell short for me. The character development happens over time, while the relationship is light-speed's faster. I didn't feel the chemistry until I was knee deep in it and I wish I could have read and felt what the characters felt on their first meeting, because it didn't feel passionate for me. However, as the book continued on I felt like I understood the characters more and grew more fond of the relationship.

"They were insane. I was insane. Fuck it all. We wouldn't stop. We didn't want to stop."

The Anatomy of Jane, WJM #1, is a character driven, sexy novel that I definitely recommend. Without giving spoilers, the twists in this book will keep you guessing nonstop and the cliffy, yes a cliffy, will make you desperate for book two. You'll want to meet these three sexy characters that make up WJM, so don't let the cliffhanger scare you, it's worth it.

About Amelia LeFay

Amelia LeFay is a character of my own imagination. She’s a single woman in her mid twenties in love with sex. Dirty sex, rough sex, sex of any type. She’s not a whore or a slut. She believes a woman should be aloud to sexually express herself anyway she wishes. She stands for Gay Rights, Women’s Rights, the rights of Minorities, and Environmental protection. She can be a bitch but doesn’t think there is anything wrong with that. She has uneven boobs, stretch marks on her ass, astigmatism, and thighs that rub together as she walks. (Which means no pair of jeans last as long as she wishes they would.)
But most importantly Amelia is a Dreamer…she has dreams so big it scares even her, because if she fails…if she can’t make it…she feels like nothing.
