Moving on doesn't always have to mean goodbye.

Widowed makeup artist Jane Sullivan is more comfortable keeping her husband's memory alive than dating a pool full of sharks. Ella, her 4 year-old daughter, is her whole world.
When Jane meets Lucas Oliver, famous cover model, it's hate at first sight. His playboy persona rubs her the wrong way.

Lessons taken from this story? Do not judge a book by its cover; there is more to a male cover model than meets the eye. The four-year-old and her innocence will steal readers' hearts. This steamy romance takes readers behind the scenes of writing a good book and getting it out there.

Great story! Loved Jane's strength, and learning the layers of "Tarzan." This is a great story about moving on after a tragedy and learning to trust again!

Fun book. When it first started out, I was afraid it was going to be shallow (lots of references to hot guys, etc) but it turned out to be a thoughtful story with likable characters. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Me Tarzan--You Jane 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Received an ARC for honest review for netgalley. I didn't feel the same connection to this story that other reviewers did. Jane and Lucas were two people who do not really have much in common, and when they meet have a couple of misunderstanding and can not stand each other and Jane tries to avoid Lucas, she should have stayed that way. When they started spending time together they ended up giving each other a chance, and he ended up hurting her in the long run. I thought book was supposed to be a feel good book, I like those, I didn't get that. So I am going to go with, second chances

3 Stars From Sammy's Book Obsession MY THOUGHTS~ I was provided with a Review Copy/ARC for review. This was a nice read overall. I didn't love it, but didn't hate it either. Being completely honest, I almost DNF at 15-20%, but I'm glad that I did. It picked up a bit once it was at like 75% or so. I liked the outcome. I didn't really feel the chemistry between the main characters, but their story was neat nonetheless. I also need to point out that while the writing wasn't bad, it did however seem like it may have been written by an author from Europe (maybe), yet the main characters were LA natives. They didn't have quite the right dialect for general West Coast Americans. I do feel like that took away from the story a bit, but not to a detrimental point. I think with some touch ups and a little work to the story, it would be an awesome read. It definitely has potential!

The Sexy Book Cover Model The Repressed Author And A Very Precocious Loving Child What could be better than a sexy book cover model and a new writer at the author's conference! Picture a man better than Fabio with a capital B, and you have our hero in this story. Handsome hunky men and the strict, you have to go by my rules, writer come together for fun, laughter, attraction, and romance. STORY LINE: Lucas Oliver is at the height of his career. He's sexy, handsome, sex appeal waffles around him and he graces many romance book covers. Jane Sullivan, pen name Jane O'Malley, is a new author at the book conference. Jane's widowed with a 5-year-old daughter, Ella Rae, and believes love happens once in a lifetime; she has high moral, life, and work standards. Lucas and Jane meet at the convention and it is swords drawn by Jane and instance dislike for the sexy Lucas. Come along with Jane and Lucas as they travel the highs and lows of a stormy trouble filled relationship filled with romance, laughter, fun, and maybe love will come during this journey. CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT: Author Camelia Miron Skiba's plotting in this story was very good as she includes romance, conflict and adversaries. She starts the book with turbulent emotions and kept the emotion at high peak as she reveals the character of sexy cover model Lucas. Ms. Skiba portrayed Lucas as a real person with feelings, issues, ideals, ambitions, and problems, rather than a fantasy character that is nothing except his sex appeal and looks. Jane's character development throughout this book was progressive and wonderful to watch. Ms. Skiba created a fun character in Jane with her many "eye rolls" and quips. Ms. Skiba's skill in story-telling is evident in this book. I loved the look we get into the romance writers conference as many of us will never get the chance to attend. I read this book as the convention/conference was in Las Vegas and found the story-line fascinating. The inclusion of Jane's daughter, Ella, was a wonderful addition to this story-line. Ella's character is so sweet and precocious, you will want to grab her and give her a big kiss. I found her character essential to the story as she grabs Lucas' heart and the heart of the reader. Ms. Skiba included an adversarial character you will love to hate; you find yourself rooting for Lucas and Jane, as Ms. Skiba developed this obnoxious character. I found the middle of the book a little slow, but the story quickly picked up speed and kept my interest. The romance is top-notch, the relationship between Jane, Ella, and Lucas, was well-developed and paced. I found this a fun relaxing book to read. RECOMMENDATION: 4 STARS I recommend this book to anyone that likes a well-developed story-line filled with romance, laughter, and conflict.
