Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken Review

Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: January 28, 2020

Four women… Four very different paths. One incredibly cutthroat world. 
Welcome to the Jungle. 

As America’s sweetheart, Brittany is perceived as the “good girl.” The sort to bring her Bible to a photoshoot… only to garner the attention of a most unlikely suitor. Until one mistake irrevocably changes both of their lives forever. Fortunately, both now and then, Brittany has wonderful support systems, including her tribe.

The leader of the tribe and a model who’s fought every battle and obstacle in the industry, Zoe, knows her worth. Until a sex tape scandal rocks her world. She sees no choice but to put her trust in the one man she shouldn’t, to make it all go away and help her succeed. Unfortunately, not only is he mired in New York’s underbelly, he wants repayment… with interest. Namely, her hand in marriage. 

Despite her seemingly perfect life, Everlee has problems of her own. Not only has her world-renowned photographer husband been cheating, but it’s actually much worse than that. The things surrounding what he’s done are so dark and dangerous, Everlee’s life may actually be in jeopardy.

And then there’s Danica, cold, dead in the ground Danica. Some secrets stay hidden while others are just waiting to be discovered- hers has the power to alter the industry forever. 

In the world of the Fashion Jungle, it’s easily eat or be eaten… but, if you make it out alive, you just might have a story to tell – though it will likely be one of secrets, lies, deceit, and loss. 

Strap on your stilettos, it’s about to get wild.

Based on true stories and events.

My Review

Fashion Jungle is suspense meets the fashion world meets mafia meets decades of friendship meets romance. It’s a gripping set of intertwined stories about friends that have been in the fashion world for what feels like forever.

Although this is my first time venturing into the fashion world via romance, it is truly a stunning display of friendship, love, and betrayal. The characters are intriguing and beg of you to keep reading. Their stories are engaging and Dane and Zoe’s storyline drew me in and Brittany was a unique character that holds the reader captive waiting to see what happens next.

Expect a rollercoaster of emotions to hit you as you read Fashion Jungle, hold on tight and enjoy the ride. From behind the scenes, fashion world moments to threatening moments to sad moments you wish hadn’t happened to romance that was bound to happen – it’s a fantastic read. 

The collaboration of Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken has created a novel not to miss. It’s full of suspense, intrigue, and even a bit of honesty. Beautifully written and executed.
