Publisher's Summary

Paula has had Robert's back since they got together as drama students. She gave up her dreams so he could make it. Now he's one of the nation's most popular actors. And Paula's just discovered he's having an affair.

She's going to remind Robert just what he's sacrificing, and then she's going to break his heart like he broke hers. It will be her greatest acting role ever. Revenge is sweet. Isn't it?

A Bit of a Bore

I enjoy Jane Fallon's style of writing - witty and crisp - but this novel was disappointing and a bit of a bore. The entire premise upon which it was structured borders on the absurd. None of the characters are likable; the protagonist's weight loss storyline was tedious and banal, while the plot to fatten her rival was simply juvenile and a non-starter.

In short, I would recommend that fans place this title at the bottom of your Fallon reading lists, to be deployed only when all else fails.

Loved, loved, loved this book!

Don’t listen to any negative reviews. This book was delicious! I enjoyed every minute. Makes you laugh and just feel so many things. It was wonderful. Love this author. My second book of hers that I’ve read. I will now read everything she writes.

My Sweet Revenge

After reading Faking Friends by the same author I thought this book would be as good. No way I have tried several times to read it but can only get to first few chapters. The story is very ordinary. I loved Faking Friends one of the best but this one should be in the romance package with all the other books not worth reading. Tried Got you Back by this author but not for me.

A Surprising Treat!

This was a fun, sassy novel with a likable protagonist, who isn't as predictable as most women in chick-lit novels. I liked that she took matters into her own hands and I enjoyed the writing style of this author. It is really hard to find light, fun fiction that isn't silly or massively predictable, and Jane Fallon delivered. I will definitely keep an eye on this author!

I love Jane Fallon books

I wasn't a fan of the short synopsis so I resisted getting this book for a while. I read a few others and kept coming back to Jane's books trying to find my next read that compared to Faking Friends. This, like her other book, has a lot of twists and turns. It does start fairly slow and it takes awhile to get into, but by midway, I couldn't stop listening. very fun and creative!

Horrible

This book could have been so good if only...there was an actual plot. There was a moment, toward the end, when I thought finally something was going to happen, but nothing (and I mean NOTHING) ever materialized. Not sure why the author titled it My Sweet Revenge, when the wife was too pathetic to actually follow through on anything. Complete waste of time and money.

Similar Plot to Other Books but Interesting

I picked up this book after reading another book by Jane Fallon. The plot of the two books were pretty similar, almost identical but it was still enjoyable nonetheless. The subtle differences in detail were enough to keep me entertained. Fun and light and interesting

Brilliance from start to finish

My friend recommended this book to me. A funny, yet slightly sad, storyline with a surprise ending. Had a great plot and the story unfolded so well. Narated perfectly. Can't wait to read her next book.
