Tour! A Review of Just You by Jane Lark

Just You (Starting Out #2) by Jane Lark
Genre: New Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance) 
Expected Publishing Date: May 2014
Publisher: Harper Impulse

The morning after the New Year’s Eve before...

Waking up to a new year with a killer hangover and hazy memories of a seriously hot hook-up the night before leaves Portia in an awkward situation... Did I, or didn’t I? The only way she’s going to find out is by standing up to the guy in question.

With no regrets, Justin is willing to play the gentleman and save Portia her embarrassment. Only then he gets a text saying, come over… and he’s not gonna lie – this is friends with a lot of benefits!

But no matter how good the sex is, there’s one thing Justin’s not down with: being this shallow rich girl’s dirty little secret...

Just You is book two in the Starting Out series by Jane Lark. Justin and Portia have some great chemistry. You can feel it gushing off the pages. They definitely let their hormones carry them away, but I think that plays well into the story as their real emotions start to become more important. I'm not sure why Portia wants to keep Justin hidden. I don't get the impression it's a rare thing for her. I think she's just been alone so long, and she has this public face that she puts on so, now that she has someone important in her life, she doesn't know how to act. It takes her out of her comfort zone. They are so cute together though and they keep each other in their places. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow from more than just a fling.

Just You by Jane Lark was kindly provided to me by Xpresso Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

Check out my reviews of a few of Jane Lark's other books:

Jane is a writer of authentic, passionate and emotional Historical and New Adult romance and author of a No.1 bestselling Historical Novel,'The Illicit Love of a Courtesan, as well as a Kindle overall Top 25, bestselling author.

She began her first historical novel at sixteen, but a life full of adversity derailed her as she lives with the restrictions of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

When she finally completed a novel it was because she was determined not to reach forty still saying, I want to write.

Now Jane is writing a Regency series as well as contemporary, new adult, stories and she is thrilled to be giving her characters life in others' imaginations at last.

You might think that Jane was inspired to write by Jane Austen, especially as she lives near Bath in the United Kingdom, but you would be wrong. Jane's favourite author is Anya Seton, and the book which drew her into the bliss of falling into historical imagination was 'Katherine' a story crafted from reality.

Jane has drawn on this inspiration to discover other real-life love stories, reading memoirs and letters to capture elements of the past, and she uses these to create more realistic plots.

'Basically I love history and I am sucker for a love story. I love the feeling of falling in love; it's wonderful being able to do it time and time again in fiction.'

Jane is also a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel and Development in the United Kingdom, and uses this specialist understanding of people to bring her characters to life.
