Chick Lit Cafe’s Book Review:
A great addition to women’s fiction, Warpaint by J. J. Maya is a humorous rendition of starting a new life in New York. Everyday woman, Willow starts afresh in more than one way when she leaves everything familiar behind and moves from Scotland to the Big Apple. Amusing and lighthearted, with undercurrents of ‘finding one’s self’ and standing on your own feet make this an engaging read.
There’s nothing I like more than curling up on the sofa with a book I can’t put down, and Warpaint was such a book! What I loved about Willow is the fact that she is an everyday woman with real problems. This isn’t one of those billionaire romances; this is normal and relatable and is much more entertaining for it. Slightly overweight, prone to making the wrong decisions’ oh, and picking the wrong men, meet Willow… makeup artist and new world adventurer! The mixed up hero/villain, whisking her off her feet in a whirlwind romance, is Rick. After only six weeks of knowing each other they are married and on their way to his apartment in NY. The reality of life in NY is described with much affectionate humor. The introduction to her ant invaded apartment had me chuckling for ages, dashed is her Hollywood vision of sophisticated Manhattan, replaced by the cold reality of living in Queens. Also dashed is her whimsical belief of being in love and a happy ever after, when the jealous ex-girlfriend arrives on the scene to ruin their relationship. Add to that the tribulations of obtaining her Green Card and you’ll understand this is no fairy tale, it is better than that: funny and moving and a story where we root for the girl to come good. Willow’s passionate about her job, whether she’s doing makeup for celebrities or everyday women. Her love of helping people look the best they can emanates from her when a woman, who is obviously recovering from cancer, has a make-over that fills her with confidence. To infuse someone with self-confidence must surely be one of the best jobs in the world!
J. J. Maya’s writing style has an easy flow making this Chick-Lit book a quick page-turner. With a unique plot and an endearing heroine, this is a great book to curl up with and forget the world for a moment. Warpaint by J. J. Maya is the perfect romantic comedy read, and comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Café. Book reviewed by T N Traynor for Chick Lit Café Books, Reviews & Author Services.
