Moving on doesn't always have to mean goodbye.
Widowed makeup artist Jane Sullivan is more comfortable keeping her husbands's memory alive than dating a poof 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 in the wrong way.
Accustomed to every woman fawning over him, Lucas is drawn to the shy, uncompromising single mom and completely melts at the sight of Ella. He is determined to convince Jane that sometimes a second chance can mend a broken heart.
Me Tarzan- You Jane was a great story about loss, love, prejudice and second chances. The author did a great job weaving the story of a young widowed single mom and a young charismatic cover model together.
When Jane firsts meets Lucas she only sees a superficial model that every women in the room swoons over. So his attention is not welcome at all. For her there can be only one love in her live and that is her deceased husband. Besides she has to do what is best for her daughter, so no man will get a chance to worm himself into her personal life. Lucas least of all. Lucas is cocky, smug and a flirter. Settling down is not for him. But it is hard to deny the sparks that fly between Jane and Lucas when they are near each other.
Slowly Jane has to readjust her first opinion of Lucas. There is so much more to him than one can see at first. He is loyal, kind and has his heart in the right place. Slowly the walls Jane build around herself start to crumble. A friendship develops between the two of them and life keeps throwing them together. But can Jane let her past completely go and will she ever be able to oversee Lucas’s past completely?
Me Tarzan – You Jane is a romantic story that will easily capture your attention. I could not help get caught up in Lucas’s and Jane’s story. Their story was just fascinating. I loved how the two of them interacted with each other. Jane’s daughter really helped them to diffuse the tension between them. The four year old was so adorable and you could not do anything else than to love her. I loved that the author made Jane such a strong woman. She could have made her something week, who could not deal with her husband’s death but now Jane is so strong. She is still vulnerable but she moves forward in life.
Overall I really enjoyed this story. Following the developments in their relationship was really enjoyable. The characters were amazing to read about and I would not mind if the author ever decided to write some companion novels with one of the other models in the lead. The book made sad at some points but then at the next page I was laughing again. Me Tarzan – You Jane is a feel-good romance novel that will leave you with a smile on your face.
