Shadows of Jane by Amy Hale

Shadows of Jane (The Shadows Trilogy Book 1) - Amy Hale

Let me start by saying that by no means is this a "bad" book, I just thought it would be more "adult" than what it is. Even though these charters are 20ish years old,  I really think I will appeal to a young adult audience. 


I liked Jane, the main character. She seems to be a well rounded, moral person. She does tend to sacrifice her own best interest for that of others.  The male love interest, Colt (I think that is his name), was slightly boring for me, but like the book itself, I think a younger audience will have a different opinion of him. He seemed too one dimensional, and young (there is that word again). 


Where i was most disappointed was with the romance. This is cleanish, so no dirty sex scenes. Their love was way too quick developing, no chemistry, no build up, it was just instantaneous. Hey, your pretty I love you type of love.


What saved this for me? Well, after all I mentioned, I still have a need to know what happens next, and will at some point continue this series to find out. If I were a younger (that word!) person, I would probably would have given this 4 1/2 stars.


I recieved an electronic copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
