I’m totally girl crushing on M.J. Kane right now, her Butterfly Memoir series is completely doing it for me right now.
The second book in the series is just as engaging as the first one. The characters here (Zach & Yasmine) have both been hurt in the past and at this point in their lives, they are very hesitate to jump back into the relationship game. But they have this serious attraction toward one another that obviously can’t be denied…so how will these friends who become lovers work through their own self doubts and fears?
Ah Ms. Kane, you took very serious real life issues and made them work around this story and its characters. Yasmine and Zach were a couple I could easily identify with, to read how these two good people learned to trust one another and love again was so sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time. And I don’t even know how you possibly did that, but you did.
Their characters were so totally relatable…the doubts and questions that you could easily ask yourself were reflected so well in the stories arc. As with the first book, so many things are covered, race, gender issues such as why can’t women have multiple sleeping partners without the stigma of being called a “Ho” and a multitude of other things. But really these two issues are in the background of Jaded. I felt like with Yasmine’s & Zach’s story it was more of learning to simply trust again…how to move pass the pain of the past and move forward towards a happy future.
Excellent story, Excellent characters, Excellent read. I highly recommend reading Jaded…I highly recommend reading this series. Looking forward to Kaitlyn's story next.
