How books like this manage to get published is beyond me. This waste of
paper claims that Marilyn Monroe was
engaged in a sexual relationship with a
female minor. The woman who
allegedly confided this information to
the author passed away in 2007 so
obviously cannot confirm these tawdry
revelations. Marilyn is long gone and
seen as an easy target to exploit by
shameless individuals wanting to cash
in on one of the biggest stars of the
20th century. This book just happens to
coincide with a sudden rush of
publishings due to renewed interest in
the iconic actress as the 50th
anniversary of her death approaches,
some are little gems, many are awful,
but this one sinks to a new low. To any
fans actually considering adding this to
their collection - seriously, don't bother.
It genuinely saddens me that a book
like this could be the first thing a new
fan of Marilyn will read.... so please -
avoid this one like the plague.

I would be seriously worried about anyone who actually enjoys this book because it would tell me that they are condoning paedophilia.
As for the actual story the author has written, it's ridiculous. I would also question the writers sexual preferences because to make up such a story and write as if this is acceptable behavior makes you wonder if he participates in illegal acts of sexul depravity himself by glorifying paedophiles with his sordid story.
I wouldn't normally review something I didn't like but feel I have to warn people not to waste their money. Unless you enjoy stories about adults engaging in sex with minors under the age of consent.
Publishing has sunk to an all time low!

Yet another story from someone who was Marilyn's 'best friend' and of course it includes the obligatory lesbian sex aspect. This book is a travesty to the memory of one of the great stars of Hollywood. Most of the information contained is easily obtainable from other sources and there are no new revelations here except for the unverifiable close friendship from a girl that has never been mentioned in any of the other hundreds of Marilyn biographies in print. With just a single photograph (on the cover) to 'prove' that Jane Lawrence met Marilyn,this is as believeable as Snow White and the 7 dwarfs. This is just another failed writer trying to cash in on a dead woman who can't fight back.

1.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTE GARBAGE ~ Pure rubbish from a M.M. Wanna-be 25 July 2012
By Thomas W. Jacobs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"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. I am offended that this book is another attempt to use Marilyn for personal gain (ala' Robert Slatzer style ~ Taking one photo with Marilyn & creating a life-time friendship out of it...)and I am so sorry I contributed anything toward it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Ridiculous Exploitation of Marilyn Monroe 5 Jun. 2012
By Svea Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars marilyn 5 May 2014
By Monica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Marilyn, you MUST read this! 12 Aug. 2013
By S. Clifford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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. I loved Marilyn for a zillion reasons, but I admired her most for being a trailblazer, a true free spirit and for her progressive thinking in an era where women had very little clout. The world really did lose her too soon and although I knew the inevitable truth as I was reading and nearing the end, I literally bawled the last four chapters.

My Little Secret was well done and I can see that Tony carefully constructed it with a ton of research. My hope is that Jane and Marilyn are together again. Somewhere or someplace peaceful. Please do yourself a favor and get this book so you can experience the magic of these words and this fabulous story!!
