"I couldn't stop reading on the IPad, it was hilarious. I really enjoyed this writer. She is up there with the top notch best sellers. I can hardly wait to read more from this author. She gives Janet Evanovich some good competition."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I laughed out loud several times while reading this book. The main character Jane Dough over analyzes, takes things personally, gets into situations reminiscient of Lucy Ricardo, and vacillates between loving and hating men, but for all her faults she is likeable. There;s a sister who tries to fix everything, a spoiled selfish sister, another who openly criticizes Jane and a difficult mother that Jane is always second-guessing. There are also two equally hot heroes -- reminds me of the Stephanie Plum novels that I love. The scenes with the agent who tries to get Jane to write a hero without castrating him and with Jane's boss who wants to help resurrect Jane's romance writing career by writing "purple prose" are hilarious. The ending was a surprise and I loved it. So glad this is a series. Can't wait fo rthe next one.
Amazing fun and book. Worth every cent 600+ pages
What fun! I got a kick out of Jane's adventures, especially her dating adventures wtith two equally appealing guys. It's refreshing to read a book that's both sexy and sweet, but not too sexy and not too sweet. Give me this kind of story over 50 Shades any day!
