Reader, I Married Him
Reader, I Married Him intrigued me from the synopsis. Jane Eyre has to be one of my favorite classical novels of all time. I thought reading a spicy twist on Jane and Mr. Rochester’s romance would be exciting. However, if you’re looking for a spicy twist on their romance then this is not the book for you. On the other hand if you’re looking for a naughty take on an old classic, then you’ll probably enjoy the eroticism penned on the pages.
Jane is a, in the words of Mr. Rochester a “hellcat” who after learning Mr. Rochester was trying to take her into a bigamous marriage has imprisoned him and making him suffer like a wretch. There is no longer any love between them. Enter Diana and her ‘brother’ St. John Eyre Rivers who are two lovers posing to con Miss Eyre out of her fortune. Though, Diana grows weary of the game and wants a normal life.
It was a very erotic book, and twisted the classic tale in a different way. It was well written, and hot, but alas for me I am a huge Jane Eyre fan and could not see the villainous side to her. I also did not like the fact Mr. Rochester and Jane did not end up together, but when all is said and done I will be looking for more of Ms. Mullany’s works.
