As the second in the Jude Magdalyn series, Shades of Desire doesn’t disappoint. Although, I think it would be possible to read this as a standalone, I’m not sure that you would understand the characters so well. Pruitt’s developed her characters well in Shades of Gray, which I reviewed on Tuesday, and as the story continues in Shades of Desire, there really wasn’t much point in her doing it again.
As I said in the other review, it is very easy to put yourself in Jude’s shoes, and imagine her shock on discovering who Gillian was. Not withstanding the shock of certain others when her grand-father is made known! Jude has grown immensely since leaving her at the end of Shades of Grey, Pruitt has developed her changes well, showing us just how strong a person Jude really is. I with I had just 10% of strength.
I highly recommend reading this, although I do suggest checking out Shades of Gray first. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series! Enjoy
NB: I received this book free in return for an honest review
