About the Book

Is life better when you’re beautiful?

Jane Johnson has tried every beauty tip and trick known to woman, but none of them have 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.

The only question on Jane’s mind is whether or not her newfound beauty is going to last or if it’s some cruel trick of fate that will fade away as quickly as it appeared.

Because everybody knows, when something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

***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).

If I Were Beautiful gave me a few bouts of the feels and lots to think about. Why is being so beautiful so important to people? Does it really make your life easier? Does it cause extra pressure to stay beautiful?

I’m sure the average person I’m sure has went through that “ugly duckling” that usually comes around during middle school when acne attacks you and you’re still growing into your looks and body.During that time I myself probably felt like it was the end of the world, then woke up one morning to find all right in the world. As far as looks go.

Unfortunately for Jane Johnson life was not so kind. She never grew out of her “ugly duckling” phase . She feels invisible to the world. Wishing men would look at her like they look at her older sister, Chelsea.

I had mixed feeling about Jane’s character, she had this “whoa me”” attitude. Often time I felted she was overreacting to situation because she thought she was being mistreated due to her looks. I should mention a few of her complaints

She hates her glasses - What?! I love my glasses. I happen to think they have this sexy effect.
Her height 5’2 - I’m 5’5 short girls rule. So what I need a step stool every so often.
Pale skin - Go tanning

During one of her “I’m not pretty tantrums Jane finds herself at a stranger’s, Wes home in desperate need of water. After guilting him to assisting her, Jane is caught rifling through his belongings . She finds this ring that looks old and tarnished. After he gifts it to her, she wears it to bed and that’s when things take a turn.

Waking up with practically a new body, Jane finds that she is getting new attention as well. Her only problem she can prove she’s her. Will this new way of life become Jane’s new normal or will things go back to what they were? Can Jane find her happily ever after being beautiful.

If I Were Beautiful is my first experience with Devon Hartfield’s work and I absolutely enjoyed every page. I found myself not wanting to put my kindle down. Waiting for what happens next is going to be torture.
