All I wanted was a little peace and quiet.

Instead, I've got dead Covenant members and a steady stream of letters from the new guy in town. His beverage of choice? A 2002 Merlot, with a shot or two of powerful virgin blood.

On top of that, I'm breaking in a new police liaison, failing at playing matchmaker, and fighting nausea like it's a full time job.

Did I forget to mention that I've also got enough girls living at the Crossroads to start my own boarding school?

Peace and quiet? Out the window.

--Jude Magdalyn Henries

Jude doesn't get any time to relax and always seems to be the focus of the bad guys attentions. 

This series is so fun and easy to get into. The characters are all fantastic and I couldn't imagine the series being without any of them no matter how much of a pain in the ass they are. Jude is tough, sassy and all around protective of those she is charged with watching over. She is settling into her new life wonderfully and I am always excited to see where the plot goes next. Jades relationship with Theo is still going strong and growing everyday. There is a lot of worry and flashes towards the events that will end Theo and I really hope they never come to pass. I love how Jude calls her baby the bump it so fits with her personality to do that and it makes me smile every time I read it.

Book 1 SHADES OF GRAY kinda jumped around a bit and wasn't as smooth from scene to scene as I would have liked but SHADES OF DESIRE has none of the complaints I would have voiced if I wrote a review for book 1. The plot was smooth the writing was fluid and the action was exciting. There was a great flash to the past and I loved the creativity that went along with that.

I seriously cant wait to get my hands on the next book. I don't know what it is going to be called or when it is coming out but I will be reading it. 

I gave it 4/5 stars
