I received this book from the author for an honest review.

EPP The drama from book 1 jumps right back in when we start book2.  Colt and Jane are looking for answers to where the bad guys are and where the children are they stole.  When Jane is about at her last bit of hope we discover Jeremy.  The three tag team up and with the help of their favorite doctor try to figure out some new clues. When someone comes and harms the doctor, they all finally decide their choice of action.  Colt’s brother joins up to figure out and help Jane.

As the group start to travel, they soon discover more of Jane’s old friends.  I personally loved Rachel and how she dealt with Brett’s insta -ove…..She cracked me up threatening him when he give her donuts for breakfast…..I really enjoyed this rag tag team of misfits or even a bit of an X-Men vibe that this group puts off.  Learning the skills and secret abilities each had was really cool as well.  A lot of this story is the team learning to work together, building trusting relationships for the final showdown in book 3 and dealing with a traitor in their camp………BOO HISS!!!  I won’t even get start on Jane and her terrible visions that she is having L

I enjoyed Colt and Jane’s continued relationship.  They are still very connected and they can read each other very well which comes in very handy in the situation they are in.  I laughed a few timed at how everyone perceived Colt as an OLD MAN or the “get a room” type comments the other kids would make to his and Jane’s goo goo eyes.

Shadows of Jane (The Shadows Trilogy, #1)

synopsis

Colt Henderson is a man who lives for the moment. His past has taught him that life is unpredictable and often disappointing. A confirmed bachelor, he believes that love only exists in fairy tales.

She’s lost, scared, and can’t remember a thing about her past or her identity. She senses all is not as it should be, but without her memory, how does she know what to fear and what to trust? Because of her status as a Jane Doe, she names herself Jane and works to put her life back together. In the process she learns that she possesses unique abilities that certain people will kill for.

Fate throws Colt and Jane together, but they both have a lot to learn about forgiveness and acceptance. Colt’s determination and Jane’s remarkable gifts will send them on a journey they never expected. To survive they will need each other, but sometimes facts are scarier than fiction, and the truth is better left unknown.

I receive his book from the author for an honest review.

I love Paranormal and UF. They are kind of a go to genre when I am looking for something to read.  I liked this story because we, the reader, don’t really know what Jane is.  Jane’s abilities are told to us slowly throughout the novel but we don’t know WHAT she is.

Colt is a regular guy hanging at this cabin when Jane stumbles in and passes out.  He takes her to the hospital and is instantly drawn to this red headed beauty.  He doesn’t know anything about her but he can’t stay away.

Jane, named for being a Jane Doe, is trying to figure out her new world.  She only knows Colt and is drawn to him and the peace she feels with him but does he feel the same?    The couple begin to navigate their emotional attachments while also trying to protect Jane’s abilities from the small town gossip. When Jane’s dad shows up, Colt and Jane have to figure out what to do and where to go.

What I really liked about Colt was his “gentleman” manners.  He knows he is a player and doesn’t want to hurt Jane but when she is full steam ahead, so is he.  I also love how he calls her on her running.  She says it’s for the best but he is willing to face the bad side of her abilities where she is too afraid of what it may do to him.  He is the perfect Alpha looking to protect his love.  Jane is a great innocent woman who wants to help everyone but tends to hurt the ones she loves and who loves her with trying to be unselfish.

I am really looking forward to reading book 2 because I want to know more about Jane and her “abilities”.
