I don't do reality shows and I definately wouldn't do the type of reality show this book depicts but I found the whole thing really interesting.
Obviously what made it more interesting was the sexual tension between the 2 main characters and wow! those scenes were just hot.
I absolutely loved Jill and Rob and the author has written these characters very well.
When reading a love story I love to be able to feel the tension and the attraction between the characters and heat up when reading their exchanges etc.
I almost didn't want to like Jesse but she was another character who I ended up liking when she made brief appearances in this. And I cannot wait to get my hands on her story and her love interest.
Am really enjoying what I have read from this author so far and I shall definatly be continuing to read more from her and I will even pay for the next couple I download :-)

I really wanted more details about the dating show. I like books like "LA Candy" that expose reality shows and get behind the scenes, but there was so much will-they-won't-they wishy-washiness between Jill and Rob that the show was back burner business. I was disappointed that there weren't more hijinx with the many men. Rob wasn't an impressive love interest. He was rude to Jill and he acted like a jilted baby. But the sex was hot and I loved the intimacy he and Jill ended up sharing. Jill was a cool girl, and she wasn't afraid to do what needed to be done.
The ending was far-fetched, but it did keep my attention, and I like how the characters all came together. Not an award-winning book, but it was okay.
The book was well written but the editing would have benefitted from a good proofreader. It wasn't terrible but I did find it a bit annoying to read "reference" when "reverence" was meant and "conscious" when it should have been "conscience," just to mention two examples. The personalities of all the characters, both major and minor ones, were very well-rounded and realistic and the dialogue was authentic, lighthearted, and fun to read. The descriptions and imagery were both very well done. This book really touched my emotions and I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the mood for a very good romantic comedy.
Jill, the main character, is smart, strong, athlethic, and funny. I love finding a great heroine who isn't a wilting flower. Somehow the author managed to make her powerful and still feminine and beautiful. The hero is flawed enough to seem real, and incredible enough to make you understand why Jill would fall so hard. I thought the author did a good job at taking something that could have easily become cheesy or boring and making it fresh. I had a hard time putting the book down. I'm excited to check out other titles by this author. If this is a good indication of what's to come, I see myself buying and reading anything she writes.
Nothing prepares Jill for her role as "Jane Millionaire," particularly when she meets Rob Lancaster, the hunky producer/host of the program, and she has visions of him dancing in her bed instead of one of the "dirty dozen" pre-chosen for her. Rob just wants to finish the show and get his latest script onto TV; he has no time for a woman that wants to use him to get ahead in Hollywood. Or does she? As the two try to keep their attraction to each other in check, it's getting harder to keep their desire a secret - especially with all the cameras present. And Rob's producing partner has a couple secrets up his sleeve to insure phenomenal ratings. But at who's expense?
Janice Lynn's debut novel is a funny satire on the whole reality show phenomenon. But it does lack a little cohesion, and detail, particularly when it comes to the bachelors (we only learn the names of two; she only spends time with one). The romance is incredible and gets high marks for its sizzling sensuality, but if you are looking for a great satire on the new millennium of dating game (but that lacks the sizzle), check out "Bachelorette #1" by Jennifer O'Connell. But overall, a pleasurable way to pass a Sunday afternoon!
Jane Millionaire is about people falling in love and having fun in the process, period. The story is magical and engaging. If you want romantic suspense, buy Linda Howard, Sandra Brown, or Tami Hoag. They write wonderful romantic suspense. I have most of their books.
However, if you want romantic comedy, buy Jane Millionaire. You'll laugh, cry, and smile all at the same time.
Oh, just in case I haven't been clear ... Janice Lynn has written a romantic COMEDY. And a damn good one at that!
