Set behind the scenes of America's most popular guilty pleasure—reality TV―Reality Jane delivers a high-spirited, delicious tale of finding love and a career in Hollywood while juggling lipo envy, singlehood angst, and the resounding results of success. 
Reality Jane follows Jane Kaufman, a Canadian journalist who, because of a lucky connection, finds herself in LA as a producer on a hot new reality show. Mingling with rock stars, attending Grammy parties, and visiting the Sex Kitten Mansion, Jane sees her new career as a one-way ticket to the big-time! But for a small-town girl thrust into the cutthroat Hollywood scene, 90- hour work weeks, heartless bosses, and superficial womanizers are a rude awakening.
Just when her love life seems at its bleakest, along come not one but two guys vying for her heart: hunky Alex, a hot up-and-coming reality show host, and Grant, a sweet, sincere cameraman who’s unfazed by Hollywood fame. With a sizzling sex life on the horizon, and maybe even true love, Jane’s fondest hopes seem en-route to full realization when she lands the cherry gig of all time: a producer’s post on TV’s hottest new self-help talk show. 
But the deeper Jane ventures into reality TV, the more completely un-real her life―personal and professional―becomes. And the realities of life behind-the-scenes—like goading people to confess their deepest, darkest secrets on cue—are chipping away at her very soul.
Lead character (and narrator) Jane embodies the perfect blend of smart-ass sarcasm, weary cynicism, and hopeful romanticism to appeal to today's readers. She also possesses a biting, acerbic wit that casts devilish, laugh-out-loud observations on the Hollywood scene, which are sure to please celeb watchers and reality show junkies alike. 
A hugely entertaining glimpse at the world of reality TV from one of its own, who’s lived and breathed the business practically since its inception, Reality Jane is the chick-lit novel that reality TV junkies and chick-lit enthusiasts have long been waiting for.



Reality Jane took me on a rollercoaster ride of success and what it meant to sacrifice in order to achieve it.

Jane, a journalist from Canada, finds herself thrust into the fast paced Hollywood lifestyle all thanks to a lucky connection. Jane is the new producer on a reality show. Her life suddenly becomes a blur of Grammy parties, Sex Kittens, rock stars and backstabbing. It doesn’t take long for her to realise the glitter of Tinsel Town doesn’t always cover the greed and darker side.

Just when her life and career seem at its bleakest, Jane is offered a new opportunity on a hot new show. The new show brings not one, but two hotties into Jane’s life – upcoming TV host, Alex, and down-to-earth and gorgeous camera-man, Grant.

But Jane must make some choices and decide what is more important to her – integrity or success, love or career, honesty or lies.

Reality Jane had the perfect mix of my two favourite things – reality TV and chicklit. This is an awesome read for anyone who loves either of these, and the awful decision of choosing between two men…
