Overview

Jayne Griffin isn’t looking for Mr. Right. She’s looking for Mr. RTFN and a toe-curling good time. She’s got the brains, the powerful job as a futures broker, and thanks to a makeover and a thin book of dating advice, the confidence to turn any man’s head.

Malcolm Black notices his high school crush, Jayne, from the stage of her company’s work party. His adolescent feelings for her died beneath months of abuse at the hands of bullies. Abuse that was Jayne’s fault. Though this scorching hot studio musician is unrecognizable as the band geek he used to be, the hurt still lives inside him, and he hatches a plan: Seduce Jayne into falling in love with him, and then shatter her heart.

The white-hot chemistry between them is a pleasant surprise. It all goes so smoothly until Feelings start to develop... and that invitation to their ten year high school reunion lands in their inboxes.

Jayne wants the perfect lover. Malcolm wants revenge. But you know what they say about The Best Laid Plans.

Meet the Author

Tamara Mataya is currently a librarian; she lurked there for so long recommending books to patrons and shushing people, that she suspects they only hired her so it would be less creepy. Now she’s armed with a name tag, and a thin veneer of credibility. She’s also a musician with synaesthesia – which isn't an issue until someone plays a wrong note, which makes her want to squirm inside out. It makes for a good live show.

    This was a great story about 2 people that have been out of high

    This was a great story about 2 people that have been out of high school for 10 years but are still dealing with those teenage insecurities and the bullying that went along with it. It’s also about these 2 finding each other and learning to let go.
    Jayne and Malcolm are so similar its scary. They just don’t know it when they first meet. Oh, and Jayne has no idea who Malcolm is. Things get seriously steamy…and I mean ‘get out your little personal fan’ steamy. They have both come a long way since high school. Malcolm has beefed up and become a seriously talented studio musician. Jayne has become a day trader, dyed her hair red (from blonde) and molded herself into shape through yoga. They both are also dealing with a lot of insecurities that they deal with by lots of one night stands and emotional detachment. I took a liking to both instantly (despite Malcolm’s intentions in the beginning). I enjoyed the sarcastic and witty humor they both shared.
    The story was sad at times but also sexy, romantic, and funny. The descriptions were good and I was easily able to submerge myself in Jayne and Malcolm’s world. I read this book in a day and really enjoyed it. 4 out of 5 stars!

    Okay read. Not what I expected. Characters and story line were fast and actions developed quickly. Too fast for me, story didn't give you much time to really love the main characters.

    I have a weakness for romance. Sometimes I want a sweet, loving

    I have a weakness for romance. Sometimes I want a sweet, loving just fall in love kind of romantic comedy book, and sometimes I want the full on sex on ever other page kind of book. Yeah, see this one is DEFINITELY the 2nd one.




    I like those kind of books, but the problem is that a lot of times there really isn’t a lot of room left over for plot, because, well, honestly, they are getting it on every other page. And The Best Laid Plans was definitely one of those kinds of books.




    See, Jayne and Malcolm have both changed their names from high school (Jayne subtly, she was Jane and Malcolm was Dylan.) Both had miserable high school experiences, and are determined to become more successful and leave their former selves behind. When they meet again as adults, the sparks fly.  And, honestly, that is all you need to know for this book.  Things go swimmingly from there.




    So if you are looking for a book to get you through a cold weekend, this is the one.




    Or, if you are in Illinois and have lost everything, like one of my friends, my prayers go out to you, and this is the perfect book to take your mind off of things, at least for a little while.
