Review - 'You're so Vain' by Alison Jean Ash



Thank you, Alison Jean Ash, for sending me a rough ARC of this story for an honest review. I am not paid or compensated in any way, shape or form for this honest review.

The heroine, Elizabeth, volunteers for the Big Brother/Big Sisters organization and she loves to help the children. Her Little Sister, Nikki, then accuses her of sexual molestation and Liz’s life turns upside down.

The plot is definitely original and I didn’t know what to expect as the story progressed other than a HEA—after all, it is a romance. The drama, pain and anguish Liz suffered put the reader through the ringer right along with the heroine. For the romance part, Liz seeks advice and guidance from Trent, a sexy lawyer who she’d begun to date. He stands by her side, not once even contemplating that she could be a horrible person, and he keeps her calm when she’s ready to break. Trent is very swoon-worthy and the perfect partner for Liz, romantically and professionally.

The only thing I didn’t like was that Liz forgave Nikki so easily (which is why I labeled this as 3.5 stars). The mean, spoiled brat dragged Liz’s good name through the mud without many repercussions to herself and nearly destroyed Liz’s career. Liz acted as though it wasn’t a big deal and still wanted to be her Big Sister. I just can’t fathom that.

Even though this was an ARC, the writing flowed smoothly. Descriptions were clear and precise. I look forward to reading more stories by this talented author.

3.5 Stars.
