As many of you know, every now and then I do pop into Amazon to see where my books are currently standing in Rank & Reviews as I like to grasp a more in depth insight of what Readers/Reviewers thought about the book they just read.
For this instance, I read the recent review posted on JANE.. And though the Reviewer did give it a wonderful Star Rating, the Reviewer went on to express some key issues that had them scratching their head.
So to not go into too much detail, I did leave a Comment but it was merely to superimpose what will be included in HUSH: Interlude.
And even though I did stress what is to be included in HUSH: Interlude through a previous post, I might have failed to include some of those issues with the Reviewers Review.
Below is the Review with my Comment to follow:

Who cares about the random spelling and grammar issues. It just adds to the raw feeling of the series. Speaking of which, I feel like it wasn’t meant to be a series so the ending doesn’t match up. Dominic, Justin and Josh went far and beyond “being tough” on Jane out of their sense of duty to the organization. The first book made that abundantly clear, so it makes the ending tough to swallow. IF they raped and beat her the first night they went to the frat party to “break her in” then MAYBE I can see her forgiving them because they are just products of their environment following orders from above. However the countless abuse inflicted on her at their hands when NO ONE was ordering them to, makes it tough for me. I can’t help but wonder if making this story a series was an afterthought, as the author could have made it far more palatable if those 3 were just a little bit less savage to Jane! Turning her out and slapping her around is difficult enough to imagine forgiveness for, but given the level of trauma they themselves endured as kids I could’ve bought it. However those 3 were soulless bastards, that enjoyed torturing Jane without having to, and that doesn’t simply just change! Still love the series, love the happy ending, Jane deserves it. Im still just conflicted a bit though and wish there was more humanity to them in book 1 OR somehow it was at least explained away better in the last book. Also why didn’t Dominic kill Mr. Parker when he had the chance? Why only shoot him in the hand? That drove me a bit nuts too…ok rant over…I highly recommend the series although I have spoiled the crap out of it with this review!
