"Cute book!" I thought to myself upon seeing this selection offered by Amazon but not carried in the bookstore. "This will be a delight to read - a young gal that started a Marilyn Monroe Fan Club!" Perhaps she did do just that too...but I will never find out because I refuse to read another deceitful word of this filthy dribble from "Jane's Fantasy" and now fully understand why it's not in the bookstore!

Upon receiving the book I began flipping around reading passages here and there. First I find out that Jane was at the 2nd sitting with Marilyn & Burt Stern in 1962 & during a break chatted with Marilyn & self-consciously snapped a few of her own photos with her "tiny camera..." Yeah, right Jane ~ Why weren't they included in the book?

Reading on ~ The night of Marilyn's death Jane drove her car over to the 5th Helena Dr. & saw Joe who spotted Jane "...and we made eye contact. His face flashed in anger as he moved quickly in my direction." (Joe? Joe DiMaggio? He wasn't even there that night!) Of course I discovered why Joe was angry at Jane by reading just a tad further...of course Jane & Marilyn were "...more than just friends." But Joe comforted her anyway! (Such a Kind-Hearted Man!)

The next and final passage I read was a slight description of their lovemaking (not for the first time I am assuming...) because they both tell the other that they must have been practicing because their skill set is much improved! (BARF!)

Are these just Jane's fantasies about Marilyn? The book is not labeled fiction or a novel but I will never know because I refuse to read any more of this garbage. I want it completely understood however ~ being Gay or Lesbian, Bi-sexual or the matter of sexual experimentation is NOT the issue here.

How can anyone believe such tripe as this? Students of Marilyn Monroe are fully aware that she has been lied about and exploited her entire life, but what is the most disgraceful is the lies that are being written and published 50 long years after her death to make a lousy buck! It seems that just anyone can write a book these days claiming to know Marilyn's innermost thoughts and secrets without having ever met her. Sex with the child who was one of her fan club presidents? I think this one wins the prize for most inane. The saddest part is the fact that she is no longer here to defend herself. As far as disparaging reviewers who find this utterly distasteful, well, it seems it is par for the course.

I loved this book!
I am one of Marilyn Monroe's greatest fans and have loved her ever since I was 9 years old and I am now 72 years of age. I always had a feeling that she was also interested in women. Of course this has never been mentioned in any of the other Marilyn Monroe books that I've read, and I've read a lot of them. I really enjoyed reading about the close friendship and love that Marilyn and Jane shared with each other. I've read a lot of the reviews and realize that many folks feel that Jane's imagination has run away with her. Why would it be so hard to believe that Marilyn Monroe could also be interested in women. I would highly recommend this book to all Marilyn Monroe fans.

I did enjoyed very much this book , I read it very slowly because it was to entertaining and quiet funny. I knew that Marilyn had a great sense of humor.but not like this. I read all my life books about her but she never stop to surprise me or amaze me. She was a free spirit in every sense and many years beyond her time. She liked very much this young girl and treated her not as a child but as a young woman she understood that she cared for her and not only because she was Marilyn Monroe the most famous actress in the world. This was a beautiful friendship that lasted until Marilyn's death. They cared for each other deeply.

This book is truly a fascinating read! I really enjoyed getting to know Marilyn through Jane's perspective. What an amazing journey it was for me. I was completely immersed in the story (which only happens when it's well written), and I had a hard time putting it down most nights. I became very consumed, even when I was not actively reading.

I am 35 and I've only seen one Marilyn Monroe film, but like millions of others, she impacted me deeply. Her strength, charisma, passion, beauty... it hurts me to know she had so much mental anguish and died so very young. I wish I had been alive when she was, to see her in real time, even if just through the television screen.

Jane was also a remarkable woman and the love between her and Marilyn was potent. The amount of detail Jane was able to recall during the years they were friends, left me without a single doubt that her story is nothing but the complete truth. I've read some of the hater remarks about this book. Those people just feel more cozy staying safe in the sanctity of their box. For them it's too hard to step outside the lines of their comfort zone.

It annoys me that many people wrote off Marilyn's sexual interest in women as "her seducing a 14 year old" and saying their relationship was a lie. I did not perceive it as an older woman seducing a young girl. I think the timing was right when it finally happened, it was consensual and beautiful. Once you read it through Jane's perspective, you will gain a better insight.

I thank the author, Tony Jerris for writing this wonderful book. It means so much to me to know about Marilyn on a more intimate, truthful level.
