Review: A State of Jane by Meredith Schorr

Jane Frank is ready to fall in love.

It's been a year since her long term relationship ended and far too long since the last time she was kissed. With the LSAT coming up she needs to find a long term boyfriend (or husband) before acing law school and becoming a partner at her father's law firm.

There's just one problem: All the guys in New York are flakes. They seemingly drop off the face of the earth with no warning and no explanation.

Should she join her best friend Marissa in singlehood, making cupcakes and watching True Blood? Or should she follow her co-worker Andrew's advice and turn the game back on those who've scorned her? As Jane attempts to juggle her own responsibilities and put up with the problems of everyone around her, she starts to realize that the dating life isn't as easy as she originally thought.


Fitting to kick off 2013 with an absolutely fantastic book by the lovely Meredith Schorr. Jane Frank is tired of flaky guys that don't know how to handle relationships. So she decides to date like a man - love 'em and leave 'em. One little problem, though.  Jane doesn't handle it very well.  She alienates her family, her best friend, the people that are trying to be in her corner rooting for her and helping her. Jane is at time self absorbed, at times downright annoying, but she is always completely Jane.  She breaks up with her "boring" boyfriend, Bob, in hopes of finding a more exciting Mr. Right.  Unfortunately, Bob slipping happily into a new serious relationship is not what Jane expected to happen and her lack of a mate sends her on quite the loopy journey.  Her hijinks that ensue are laugh out loud and you will be kept completely entertained as she meets man after man. A fun supporting cast, witty dialogues, an embarrassing strip tease, and an ending that you won't see coming will have you clamoring for more.

Meredith Schorr's debut novel, "Just Friends With Benefits", was full of sharp characters and vivid storytelling.  Her talent does not fade with her second novel.  Meredith writes characters that you want to hang out with, even when you want to smack them upside the head and yell at them to wake up.  (Besides she is a Yankees fan and that means that she is pretty much amazing.)

Five stars and a guarantee that you will love this book are what I have to offer.


Author Bio:

A born and bred New Yorker, Meredith Schorr discovered her passion for writing when she began to enjoy drafting work-related emails way more than she was probably supposed to, and was famous among her friends for writing witty birthday cards. After dabbling in children’s stories and blogging her personal experiences, Meredith found her calling writing “real chick lit for real chicks." When Meredith is not hard at work on her current work in progress, she spends her days as a trademark paralegal at a law firm in New York City. Meredith is a loyal New York Yankees fan and an avid runner. She also loves to read and is always on the lookout for her new favorite author. A State of Jane is her second novel.
