Book Description

Reviewer: "If you like Sweet Home Alabama, you'll love JANE (I'm Still Single) JONES!"

Amy Edelman of IndieReader declared Jane (I'm Still Single) Jones as 1 of 5 great Indie Romance Novels .

What could be worse for a former high school beauty queen, who never landed the only man she ever loved, than attending--alone--her 10-year high school reunion? Not much, according to textile designer Jane Louise Jones as she prepares to endure the weekend in her hometown, just south of nowhere in the rolling hills of Louisiana, with her grandmother and the rest of the well-meaning Vernon Ladies Bridge Club trying their best to find her a husband.

Jane agreed to attend the reunion because her best friend told her that Morgan Sherwood, the town boy-wonder who made good in a big way, was going to be a no-show. Morgan, once her secret love, was a geeky teen who stole her heart and then broke it before leaving town forever.

Isn't it awful when you can't trust your BFF? Morgan arrives with his entourage in a stretch limo, and he's not a geeky kid any more. He's six feet of tanned, rippling muscles, and he plans to focus his high-powered brain and every seductive charm he possesses on the lovely Miss Jones.

With a former classmate intent on claiming the billionaire as husband number four, a Hollywood starlet who shows up to party with Morgan, and an old boyfriend intent on stealing Jane's affection, Morgan has more obstacles than he'd expected.

Throw in the matchmaking Vernon Ladies Bridge Club, lots of southern charm, a ten-year old betrayal, and plenty of romantic humor for a heartwarming, romantic comedy that will leave you with a smile.

Be sure and Click See Inside to read an excerpt of this Contemporary Romance that's chock full of Romance and Sex as well as Romance Humor.

Jane (I'm Still Single) Jones was originally print published. This Ebook Edition contains a Linked Table of Contents and these Bonus Features: Novel Excerpts, Articles, and the Quotation Collection: Small Towns.

Review

"Jane (I'm Still Single) Jones by Joan Reeves is 1 of 5 great Indie Romance Novels." -Amy Edelman of IndieReader, Romantic Love Books, August 2011

From the Author

Small towns are endlessly fascinating to me. Maybe that's because I grew up in a small town where everyone watched out for you--and knew everything you did. Everyone knew when you did something awesome. They also knew if you misbehaved, your parents would hear about it before you got home. Knowing you were accountable for your behavior to practically everyone in town kept you on the straight and narrow.

Conversations went like this. Mrs. B. called Nanny L. and asked,  "Did you see that strange car with the out of state license plate parked at the Smiths over on the other side of town?"

Nanny L. replied, "Yes, I sure did. I wondered who that was."

To which Mrs. B said, "Oh, let me tell you then."

Since everyone knew what you were doing, where you were doing it, and who you were doing it with, keeping secrets was almost impossible. Indeed, the residents of small towns should be recruited by the NSA or the CIA because those small town citizens--especially the women--would nose around and investigate until they dug up every detail about the object of their curiosity.

What better setting for romantic comedy? None I can think of because people in small towns are perfect role models for love and laughter.

Look for my other romantic comedies set entirely or partially in small towns: Just One Look, Old Enough to Know Better, Romeo and Judy Anne, The Trouble With Love, Still the One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute and funny! June 6, 2011
By lexie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like this author. All of her books are quite fun to read. Lately I have been getting in to romance novels but unless they have humor to them, I usually don't like them. This book was really funny and really cute. I loved the characters and the dialog. For less than a buck, it's worth the price! The only thing I should warn you about is the amount of spelling and grammatical mistakes, there are plenty. I wish the author had an editor read it before selling it to fix those errors but other than that this book is fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy and adorable - Morgan and Jane rock! June 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These are two of the most delightful characters on the printed page. Jane thinks she's worldly NYC but is very much the Louisiana belle - and Morgan...well what can you say, the perfect all grown up, hunky former nerd.

Joan Reeves is at her very best with these two and the entire small town of delightful characters...and the kissing scene with poor Morgan and the much married exercise queen will have you laughing for hours.

It's delightful, delicious, sexy and adorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic Fun March 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I love stories where the hero goes from nerd to hero and Morgan is the classic example of school nerd made good and transformed into a hunk. He's also a nice guy as well. Another amusing read from Joan Reeves with all the usual funny moments and deliciously embarrassing moments for the heroine Jane.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane I'm Still Single Jones August 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading the story and loved it. The main characters, Jane and Morgan, were vulnerable and trying to protect themselves from further hurt, but couldn't stay away from each other. The entire cast was great and came to life with just a few well chosen descriptions. The story was funny and sad and sexy and had a great ending. The nasty people didn't need much in the way of descriptions, as their actions and dialogue did the job quite well.

This was my first Joan Reeves book but it won't be my last. Beautifully written and edited!!! Yeah!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fun read! January 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this last fall and have been meaning ever since to review it. I don't ordinarily read lighthearted books in any genre! Maybe it's my early reader influence, growing up with a mom who introduced me to the classics. I fell in love with the dark writers, Tolstoy, Hawthorne, the Bronte sisters. But I had corresponded with Joan and read her blog and liked it so much, so wanted to try her fiction. I loved the description of Jane I'm-Still-Single-Jones. Who hasn't attended their high school reunion and not felt what Jane feels? Even successful, the high school beauty queen, no less, you still feel somehow inadequate--and there's always that guy, the one relationship that didn't end right. Jane's story captures every nuance of reunion doubt and trepidation. In fact every character in the story is so well defined, I felt warmed in their presence. Joan Reeves is one smart, professional writer who knows her genre inside and out and just how to serve it up with equal measures of snappy dialogue, humor and romantic delight. I loved this book and recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars It is highschool all over again! July 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was entertaining and funny. This is the story of Jane, who left the small town and is now a famous fabric designer in NYC and single. She is coming back to her 10 year high school reunion. She didn't want to see Morgan, her high school crush and the boy who broke her heart. Jane was a chearleeder and Morgan was the class nerd. Morgan became a millionaire businessman and coming back to his old highschool was bittersweet. He wanted people in the small town to see how well he had done, but especially, he wanted Jane to see who he was now. The reunion itself provided lots of amusing moments, especially being in a small town where everyone knows everything and like to meddle in each others business. When they first meet, they were both shocked at how attracted they still were to each other. Even after all these years, Morgan has not forgotten about Jane and how she broke his heart.

This is a story of misunderstandings. It starts that way and slowly continues creating more misunderstandings along the way. It becomes a bit frustrating at times, a simple conversation would have cleared so many things up, but then again, we wouldn't have a book to read! There are tons of characters in the story that add to the meddling town and to the story.

Story was cute, nothing dramatic or earth shaking. It is very light and funny story. Overall pretty cute!
