Jane Dixon is a dating disaster. Flammable tablecloths and broken arms are just a typical evening for her unlucky companions. No wonder Jane never gets past a first date. But luckily her co-worker and new bff says he’s got loads of friends who’d date her more than once. If only she could stop thinking about how much fun he was to hang out with. And she’d never dropped a bucket of ice on his junk. Win.

 All attorney Eric Blackwell has to do to make junior partner is not screw anything up for six weeks, which seems like a slam dunk until he finds himself matchmaker to the office “One Date Wonder” aka the boss’s daughter. It’s hard to stay focused when setting up the hottest girl he’s ever met with everyone but himself. Maybe he could just set her up with all the wrong men, and keep his hands off his new friend… Yeah. His promotion is toast.

There are books that I'm immediately drawn to just by the cover. If it is a cute cover or one with a sexy hero, something that does a great job at conveying the tone of the book will grab my attention. When I came across Dear Jane, I immediately wanted to read it. This book is just as adorable as the cover. It's hilariously quirky. I wanted to be Jane's friend and Eric is my first book boyfriend of 2017. They were characters that I didn't want to say bye to at the end of the novella. I wanted to spend so much more time watching their blossoming relationship. Thank goodness that this is the beginning of a new series! I can't wait to meet Jane's friends. Plus I really want to explore more of Marissa's books. I loved her writing style in Dear Jane. It was fun and flirty with just enough sexiness to keep a smile on my face. Dear Jane was the first book of Marissa's and I know I'll be adding more to my TBR for 2017.
