Jane Austen Lied to Me by Jeanette Watts 💕 Exclsuive Excerpt, Book Tour and $15 Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Romantic Comedy)



Seven times my life, instead of becoming a romance, turned into a made-for-TV drama.

Dear Diary,

In three years of college, there are seven times my life seemed to suddenly turn into a Jane Austen novel; seven times my life, instead of becoming a romance, turned into a made-for-TV drama.

What am I doing wrong?



Aug 24


This is going to be fun! I’ve got an apartment close to campus with Tiffany and Allie. I’ve known them both since our freshman year, we’re all part of the library sweet spot crowd. I’m carrying in a box of kitchen essentials Allie’s mom gave us (the problem with apartments instead of dorms is that now you have to move cooking equipment as well as bedding and clothing), and who should be holding the door open for me, but – Lon!


“Well, hello!” he said when he saw my face.


“Wow, hi,” I said. Then neither one of us knew what else to say.


“I’ll chat with you when your arms aren’t quite so full,” he gave me this sort of courteous little bow.


“That will be great,” I answered. “See you around!”


I suppose if he was really being a gentleman he would have offered to carry my box for me. But then, he was probably in the process of moving himself in, too. I was standing in front of my door when I realized I should have asked him what apartment he’s in.


That’s when I remembered my vow. I’ve sworn off men this year. It doesn’t matter if I regret saying no when he’d asked me out two years ago. He is NOT Captain Wentworth, I am NOT living in a Jane Austen novel, and I won’t distract myself with men when I need to focus on school.


“Hey, stop standing there and open the door!” Allie appeared in the hallway with her arms full of bedding. Her mother and sister were right behind her, carrying laundry baskets with towels in three colors, so all three of us girls will have color coded towels.


“Sorry.” I put down the box and fished around in my pocket for the keys.


Allie was watching me. “Is something wrong?”


“I should have used smaller boxes. This thing is heavy,” I said. I decided I wasn’t going to tell Allie or Tiffany about Lon. If I’m swearing off men, what good will come of gossiping about them?
