Synopsis: Under a painted sky

Isabella Reed is a fast-track twenty one year old from a small Florida town. She flees to the Land of Enchantment, Albuquerque, NM, where the beautiful painted skies go on forever and hold hope for a fresh start.
She meets Logan Hayes, a sexy guide who has been hired to show her all the sights of her new city. He shows her much more than that. Something Paranormal happens to Isabella that she is unaware of when touring the Petroglyphs and her life takes a downward spiral into a supernatural captivity that no one will believe except for Logan. He vows to protect her with his life after seeing for himself.

My thoughts:

I would have loved to see a bit more paranormal in this! Jenna touches on it (Sadly I can’t say how! No spoilers allowed!) but I would have loved more! Also, I do really like the characters but the conversations threw me off a bit. It was clunky here and there. I wanted more of them! Although the characters are a lot of fun to read about. And the world that Jenna makes for us… Wow! I mean I’ve been to New Mexico, but the descriptions she adds in was brilliant.

And man! To have a pool boy show you around town!

So, overall the plot was really interesting and it ended on a really good note but I wanted more! A bit more from the characters so I could really fall in love with them while they are falling and so I can understand them more. But I am hoping that there will be more to come in the second book because this really just whet my appetite for Jenna’s writing. Great first book. Really easy to read (minus just a few clunky spots), totally fun!
