Jane Dixon is a dating disaster. Flammable tablecloths and broken arms are just a typical evening for her unlucky companions. No wonder Jane never gets past a first date. But luckily her co-worker and new bff says he’s got loads of friends who’d date her more than once. If only she could stop thinking about how much fun he was to hang out with. And she’d never dropped a bucket of ice on his junk. Win.
All attorney Eric Blackwell has to do to make junior partner is not screw anything up for six weeks, which seems like a slam dunk until he finds himself matchmaker to the office “One Date Wonder” aka the boss’s daughter. It’s hard to stay focused when setting up the hottest girl he’s ever met with everyone but himself. Maybe he could just set her up with all the wrong men, and keep his hands off his new friend… Yeah. His promotion is toast.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Dear Jane was a sweet, funny and light read with lovable characters and hilarious dialogue.
Eric has been solely focused on making junior partner at the law firm where he works a gazillion hours a week. He’s only a handful of weeks away from his yearly evaluation and the promotion he’s been working so hard for. His only problem is he’s been secretly crushing on Jane, the boss’ daughter and his colleague, but because of the strict no-fraternization policy he has satisfied himself with just watching her from afar…
Jane is the absolute worst at dating, blundering her way through date after date, never scoring a follow-up date. She becomes friends with Eric, and he finds himself in the unenviable position of setting up the girl of his dreams with other men, then consoling her when it doesn’t work out. Soon, Jane and Eric are spending lots of time together and as their feelings for each other begin to grow, so would the obstacles in their way.
I found both Jane and Eric very likable, and they were sweet and kind of dorky together in a super cute way. I loved how Eric took care of his mom and was adorkably in love with Jane. I wish Jane had been a little more self-reflective about what truly made her happy and gone with it, but I could understand where she was coming from. She was a funny girl and when she could relax and be herself with Eric it was like magic.
Filled with funny moments, sweetness and sexy shenanigans Dear Jane was a truly entertaining and enjoyable read.
