At first, Jane and Colt's blossoming relationship and discovering Jane's true identity are the focal points of SOJ. But then, there's a twist: Jane's freedom--from the sinister organization that has controlled her life--quickly takes center-stage.
Throughout her hardships, Jane portrays the heart of a tigress, and is a remarkable heroine.
Thus, if you seek a sweet and dramatic romance that's jam-packed with adventure and mystery, then you want to one-click this five-star read!
Kudos, Amy! You produced a truly charismatic story. 💖
Above I was asked if there is violence in the book, I believe that would in the reader's perception. Sexual content? Down and dirty sex, nope, sexual tension yep.
In book one of the Shadows Trilogy, Colt Henderson just lost his father and is taking some time off staying at his dad’s cabin when a soft knock is at the door. He is surprised to find a young woman at his door who collapses at his feet. After doing the right thing by taking her to the hospital he can’t stop thinking about her.
Jane has no idea who she is. She can’t remember. The doctor tells her she almost died and she is lucky to be alive. She has to figure out what to do next and who she is.
Colt decides against his better judgment to help her. He can’t believe how protective he is about her. When strange things start occurring around her, he should be afraid. However he becomes more protective of her. He can’t explain his feelings. He doesn’t do relationships but with Jane it’s different.
When a fight happens at his place of work and others see what Jane can do, Colt has to hide her. He knows that it won’t stay a secret for long. Unbeknownst to them both, she is being hunted and now they know where she is.
I had no idea what to expect from this book. The beginning intrigued me. This girl is trying to escape and ends up losing her memory. The reader has no idea what she is trying to escape from or who she really is. The possibilities are endless. So when the author reveals her abilities it adds another layer to the story. I’m still intrigued. I like the paranormal twist.
I’m not sure how I feel about the helpless Jane though. Her character at the beginning was too much of a helpless maiden in distress which tends to annoy me. So I was glad to see what she was like by the end.
Colt was a typical young bad boy that turns into her protector. I like how he was shocked at his feelings.Read more ›
Shadows of Jane is a sweet story of a young women who is running from someone and makes it to a cabin where she collapses. Colt the owner of the cabin takes this mystery women to the hospital like any decent person would do, she looks like she’s about dead and he can’t imagine where she even came from.
Colt is kind of a small town bad boy, not interested in keeping most people around for long, does his job at the bike shop, and doesn’t think on the future much; all and all Colt lives in the here and now. After the mystery women wakes up a few days later in the hospital he goes to visit her, part curiosity about who she is and part wanting to see she was alright. He didn’t expect her not to know who she was, or remember anything at all before waking up in that hospital. Colt befriends the woman who is going by Jane Doe and she’s glad that someone in the world cares she exists. She is especially glad for it when the weird stuff starts to happen.
Shadows of Jane is the start of a series that ends up giving me a bit of an X-men feel. When Jane is feeling strong emotion all sorts of things start to from levitation to fires, she has to learn to hide and control it. Colt at times is freaked out but takes it all remarkably well.
As I said the story was sweet, wasn’t super-fast paced but moved along well. I would have liked to see more depth from the characters but towards the end of the book it looked like that is something we are going to see in the coming books. Our bad guys are diabolical and have a lot of potential to really make you hate them more in the future.Read more ›
These four words of dedication were the very first words in this book, and they captured my attention instantly. There's nothing worse than a weak, pushover female lead in an Urban Fantasy novel. So it was this indirect promise that made my hopes rise high before I even started reading.
Good news: while there was still room for improvement, Jane did turn out to be a likeable, strong heroine.
Bad news: she wasn't very well developed.
Okay, given this book's total page count of only 171, it was clear from the beginning that there were going to be some shortcomings. Either plot-wise, character-wise or romance-wise.
The plot was pretty good, actually, even though there were a few loose ends that I wish would have gotten tied up and it was a little clichéd. I'm a sucker for the amnesia trope, though, so I managed to overlook some things that normally would have bothered me more.
The characters, well... Though they were likeable and relatable, they were lacking in depth, starting with the descriptions of their physical appearance and (not) ending with their personalities. I was never able to connect to them because I felt I knew nothing about them. Why were they the way they were? Why didn't Jane seem to be upset about her amnesic state? What was it that drew Jane and Colt together, besides their looks? What exactly was Lance's purpose in all this?
I did really like Doc, though, he was a little saving grace for me.
The romance part was too wishy washy and too... "insta" for my liking. I didn't feel the connection and I certainly didn't know what about Jane was supposed to be so appealing that suddenly every guy in her vicinity would turn into some stalker and try to claim her.Read more ›
