When I read the blurb for Fashion Jungle I was obsessed! It reminded me of a combination of Sex In The City, Devil Wears Prada and Pretty Little Liars. An amazing story set in the fashion industry with a great cast of characters with their own drama and lives. I loved the secrets, betrayals and jealousy and the inner turmoil and triumphs between all the characters. This story was like a decadent soap opera I never wanted to end!

Without going into major details, this story is told from four
#FashionJungle #Review
Rachel Van Dyken teams up with model, actress Kathy Ireland to write this intriguing and very authentic novel which focuses on four friends and their experience in the fashion industry.

At fourteen years old, Danica, Brittany, Zoe and Everlee had stars in their eyes and dreams of becoming famous models. Two decades later, three of them know that success comes with a high price. They all have secrets, battle inner demons and now Brittany, Zoe and Everlee are left to mourn

3.5/ 5 stars

Fashion Jungle is sort of a combination between Contemporary Romance, Women's Fiction and Mystery.

There are a bunch of 3rd person narrators: Zoe, Brittany, Everlee and Dane.

The book starts with an intriguing prologue. Someone dies. And figuring out what happened is the mystery part of the book.

The book is centered around the modeling world and New York Fashion Week. I love both of these things. So I was very excited to read this book (co-written by an actual model).

The prologue was

Fashion Jungle is one of those books that you start reading and get sucked into it tight away. If it weren’t for work, I would have spent an entire just reading this roller coaster of a story. I could not put the story down.

We begin with a compelling secret that sucks you right in. Who did what? Why did they do? What is really going on? You are stuck to a spider web of lies and secrets that create a vortex of truths. What I loved most about this book was how seamlessly Kathy Ireland and Rachel

All I kept thinking was this book may have been fiction but it was based on true events, I kept thinking of the characters and wondering who they were in real life. Sometimes the elements in a book leave you emotionally exhausted, and kind of dumbfounded about where to begin wirh your thoughts. I'm at a point in my life where I realize that not all things are unicorn and roses so I choose to read happy things and lots of romance. This book did have a little bit of romance but a lot of suspense, ...more

Kathy Ireland teams up with Rachel Van Dyken to author Fashion Jungle, a story about four friends forced to grow up too fast in the intensely adult world that is the fashion industry. Brittany, Zoe, and Everlee all have their own personal demons and secrets. And they all mourn the sudden suicide of their friend, Danica. However, things aren’t always what they seem.

Fashion Jungle presents us with a lot of characters and a lot of ideas. There are lots of narrative threads (pun intended) to follow,

When this book first started I wasn’t too sure it was for me but by 20% I was sucked into the fashion jungle. Like stayed way too late past my bedtime and today is going to be a tough work day.

I loved all the characters, I love how each models career is seen as perfect from the outside but inside they are all struggling and fighting their own demons. Though I think Oliver and Dane were just totally amazing. Completely different. The doctor and the protector. These 3 friends have banded together

Omg wow, I just finished Fashion jungle and I'm feeling shocked (In a good way) and not sure what to say about this book other than this was hands down an amazing story from Rachel Van Dyken. You really really brought this to life and I felt part of the story. And I love that is was in 4 POVs. I've read a lot of Rachel's books over the years and this has to be one that will stand out for me. A big congrats Rachel.

Pretty girls don’t always have pretty lives, especially when they are forced to survive rather than live. This book is a very different look at the modelling world!

Three smart, beautiful women, Brittany, Everlee, Zoe...all with secrets, living various lies. Sometimes the people with the biggest smiles are struggling the most...appearances are just that, appearances. “It’s the Instagram effect. Perfect pictures on the outside, total mess on the inside.”

Then there’s the men in their lives, many

Fashion Jungle is Rachel’s most epically written book yet and she co-wrote it with Kathy Ireland, so I knew some spectacular story telling was about to take place, and let me tell you calling this book astounding doesn’t even come close! This story explodes off the pages from the first few paragraphs and I knew I was in for a wild ride. My emotions were all over the map and I don’t know how many times I yelled, cried or cussed. The love and friendship between these girlfriends is magnetic and I ...more

Who knew the fashion world could be so ugly? I wish this was three separate books - and that is both a compliment and a complaint. With Rachel Van Dyken’s writing skill and Kathy Ireland’s fascinating tales of the fashion world, I was engrossed in this from the very beginning. It’s a compelling look at the fashion industry and the ugliness that lurks beneath the beautiful facade. However - and this is a big however - the inclusion of so many characters and perspectives gives it a somewhat ...more

This was a compelling look into the cut-throat world of fashion and modeling.

To begin with, I positively adored the fact that while this story was authored by two people, it never felt that way. I couldn't tell you from reading it which chapters (or characters) were written by whom and I like that. I liked that it flowed together into a cohesive story instead of feeling choppy.

On the flip side, having four different POVs throughout the novel sometimes made it hard to keep track of who had what

3.5 STARS!!!
Fashion Jungle is a book that gives readers a glimpse into the modeling world of four young women and their hardships, determination and sacrifices. It was easy to see the love and support these women had for each other but their success came at a price. I absolutely loved Dane, Roger and Oliver. Dane was the dark, dangerous and protective of his girls but he did it in a way that only he could. Roger was the loving father figure wanting all of his girls to be happy. Oliver was the

I honestly do not know where to start. Lets see... this book was amazing. The suspense and suprises were phenomenal. It had Rachel's signature funny, whitty banter, but it was different than her other books. It was light and flirty where the others are hilarious and non stop laughs. Its was a great way to bring situations that people go through to light. It was done in a very classy and caring way. I applaud both of these women for their amazing efforts in creating this masterpiece. Thanks for ...more

I love the story telling format of this book. I love all of the different points of view, the quick pace to the story and the way Rachel has woven the past & present flow seamlessly. Every little girl wants to be a model or an actress (or princess) at one point in time. These four girls are living the dream...filled with drama, friendship, love, loss, loyalty, family suspense, deception...big city, big dreams, big heartbreak.

Four young teenage girls’ bond and make a commitment to each other as they try to “make it” as models in New York City. Danica, Brittany, Everlee, and Zoe didn’t realize what they would have to sacrifice to have the modeling career they wanted. Twenty years later the Fashion Jungle as taken the life of one of the girls and left the other three to pick up the pieces. Secrets, lies and revenge are just part of the fashion industry and not everyone survives. Someone is going to pay for the girl’s ...more

“Life. There was no why in life, only free will, decisions built on other life-altering choices. And life.”

What a story! Fashion Jungle takes us into the gritty, ruthless world of modeling. The story is raw and hits you with many emotions.

“Funny how the safest place people always expected to find themselves in, was the most dangerous. And the most dangerous? Peaceful beyond reason.”

The things Zoe, Brittany, Everlee, and Danica have been through are grueling and brutal; and they are truly

It’s a dream of most girls growing up, becoming a fashion model. At least that was the dream my grandmother had for me. I would rather be playing baseball with the neighbor kids.
Yet for those few who do make it big time, it not all the glam we may think it is. This is brought home with the new release from Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken. Kathy has told this story and through her eyes we get a glimpse what a models real life story is. I must confess I read this as a fiction

Fashion Jungle by Kathy Ireland and Rachel Van Dyken a five-star chaotic masterpiece. This one had me stumped so many times, one moment I didn’t know if I could finish as it was just so confusing and then a few pages later I was hooked again. I personally found it confusing as there were four narrative threads but its never really clear who is telling the story until you get to know the characters and get to hearing their voices tell you the story. Once you get into the story and can tell who is ...more

This book is definitely something different from what I usually read and I was so happy to be able to dive into a fashion world that we all love but don’t know much about it. Sometimes people that crave power will be doing and willing to do anything to get that power. This story has everything you’re expecting from fame to revenge, from glam life to the ugliness of someone’s soul.
For most of the book, I found it more woman’s fiction than romantic suspense. It definitely has many suspense

Tears! Just all the kind of tears! Sadness, happiness, being anxious, surprised. Just so many tears.

This book was amazing. I was not certain of this at first. It does not really fall into one genre. There is intrigue, romance, mystery, and self discovery. As a reader you wouldn't think that you could understand 4 models. But there will be something that will resonate with you. I loved how different at heart that all the women were, but yet they are the best of friends even closer than sisters. I

This book was NOTHING I expected and EVERYTHING that I needed. It actually read to me like a tv series. (It would be a great show) the fact that it is partially based on true events and not knowing what is or isn’t truth just added to the story in such an intriguing way. The idea that any of it could be based on real life is heartbreaking and shocking. Its the perfect time for a book like this to have been written.
