If I Were Beautiful by Devon Hartford - Banner

bw synopsis

Is life better when you’re beautiful?

Jane Johnson has tried every beauty tip and trick known to woman, but none of them If I Were Beautiful by Devon Hartfordhave ever made men notice her.

Until now.

Finally, something is working. She barely recognizes herself in the mirror. Is it her new haircut? Two years of yoga class? Her new eyebrow tweeze? Or is it all that nasty wheat grass juice her sister insisted she drink finally working some kind of magic? Whatever it is, something is transforming Jane from plain to downright beautiful.

For the first time in her life, men are noticing her.


Jane is getting so much attention from men she doesn’t know what to do with it.

Before her inexplicable transformation, she couldn’t get a date to save her life. Now she has a date every night of the week. Gorgeous eligible men are throwing themselves at her. They’re even fighting over her. Actual fist fights to win her affection.

It all seems too good to be true.

***If I Were Beautiful is a saucy romance with a mystical twist that will leave you breathless to find out what happens next. This is book one of a three book series. Book two will release April 2017, Book three, July 2017 (or sooner).

bw my review

If I Were Beautiful is a uniquely plotted, surprisingly funny, interestingly relate-able novel by Devon Hartford.

The story revolves around Jane feeling like no one would like her because of how she looks. She was also not happy when men would try courting her only to find out in the end that they don’t like her; instead, it was her sister, Chelsea, they really liked. It was Sunday, and she has a new neighbor who was a jerk, and on that day, she also met Wes, and the conversation between them really amazed me and made me laugh. Before going home, Wes just let her have the ring she was clutching when she went inside a room in the mansion. The real story will start from there because, after 5 days, she just found herself changed – physically changed – into looking like a supermodel.

This book was really lovely to read. Reading this will teach you that outside look was not important and it won’t make you happy. It was better to be simple yet happy and contented.

The characters were well-written, and I love how Jane experienced both sides of being unnoticeable and getting a lot of attention. You could see on this book that people tends to just befriend and like you if you were gorgeous and if you were not, then you could only count your friends on your fingers.

I just hate how it made me crave for the next book. I’m really excited to find out who will win her in the end.

I am really recommending this book! Just read this for you to see how this book will enchant you to read it.
