My mother named me Jane after Jane Austen--or maybe Jane Eyre. She said either one would do. With a name like Jane, I might not be a beauty queen or the most popular girl in the room, but I would be smart and strong and make good decisions.

I guess I've mostly lived up to my name.

My mother died before we could go on our trip to England to visit

Overview

My mother named me Jane after Jane Austen--or maybe Jane Eyre. She said either one would do. With a name like Jane, I might not be a beauty queen or the most popular girl in the room, but I would be smart and strong and make good decisions.

I guess I've mostly lived up to my name.

My mother died before we could go on our trip to England to visit all of the best Jane-spots, so I'm going with my best friend instead. That's Nate. He's sweet and funny and adorable, and we've known each other since kindergarten. In fact, he was almost my stepbrother until my mom and his dad broke up. But don't get the wrong idea about him. It's never been romantic between us.

At the moment, I'm crazy about this mystery guy I've been talking to on a dating site, and he's nothing like Nate at all. I don't know why I'm suddenly finding Nate so attractive, and I don't know why he has started acting kind of strange.

Anyway, this is my Jane trip, and I've been waiting for it all my life.

Chasing Jane is a sweet just what you need to remind yourself that yes there is romance out there kind of book! Nate and Jane had been friends forever and Jane has found herself on a personal trip of a lifetime that she should of been taking with her mom, that she recently lost. Nate stepped in and is on the Jane Trip........she finds herself looking at Nate in a way she knows she shouldn't because it could end up changing and possibly losing her best friend. Love love love....this book! I was given this book for a free and honest review.

I loved this novel . Chasing Jane is a sweet novel with a charming couple. Full of references of Jane Austen and with a good prose Noelle Adams hit it again. This story is short but full of good moments and talk about a friendship that becomes more for the main couple, their affinity is so great and the development of their romantic relationship is so adorable. Jane Austen would be proud! I recommend!

This was a really sweet, friends-to-lovers story. What I liked most is that the characters are regular people who find that love is right in front of their eyes.

My Thoughts: A spontaneous new release by one of my favorite authors? YES, PLEASE. And I love shorter stories--they're more focused and to the point. When the romance happens, it's not dragged out with unnecessary conflict. With Chasing Jane, it had everything you could wish for in a shorter romance. The best friends to lovers trope is always welcome in my books, and Nate and Jane are perfectly adorable together as friends. You can feel their struggle, their hope, and their love in the interactions they have. I love Jane's story--not just her romance, but her background with her name and her mom and her trip. Everything was well thought out and written so that you fell for the characters the same way they fell for each other. This book is definitely a recommendation in my book if you're looking for a quick and sweet read. My Rating: Very Good

This lovely friends to lovers short novella takes place in England as Jane (a huge fan of all things Jane Eyre and Jane Austen) visits with her best friend Nate. He set this trip up for her, a chance for her to recoup after her mother passed away and to give her what she's always wanted, a trip to all the Jane sites she's loved from the books for so long. Though Jane wishes she could have gone with her mother, being with her best friend is equally exciting and meaningful for her. At the same time, she's recently entered into an online 'relationship' of sorts with a gentleman who calls himself Rochester ( a man after Jane's heart obviously). But while in England, Jane starts to notice little things about Nate, things she's avoided thinking about too deeply until now. Could her own Rochester be right under her nose? This is told from Jane's point of view and you get the sense that she is a friendly, sweet young woman, still grieving the loss of her mother but used to Nate being her rock in all things. I loved seeing her start to realize that Nate is more than just a nice guy - her physical attraction to him starts to manifest itself in new ways and it's a tender and sweet story as it's obvious to the reader that only a man in love with a woman would go to such lengths for her as to plan the trip of her dreams. Since Nate doesn't usually express himself emotionally, Jane is quite taken with her 'Rochester' and his fluid way of writing and his complete understanding of her and her feelings. Of course (and sorry if this is a spoiler, but it's pretty obvious where the plot is headed here), Nate and Rochester are one and the same, and when Jane discovers this, she must decide what she's going to do with this information. Eventually we get to the kissing and whatnot in some unpretentious and emotional scenes between them. I liked everything about this story, from the descriptions of the charming cottage and landscape of their vacation spot, to the ups and downs of the emotional roller coaster as Jane and Nate move forward from friends to lovers. Delightful! 5 stars.
