Review: Sweet Jayne by K Webster
Kasper thinks he hates her.
Donovan thinks he loves her.
Logan thinks he owns her.
Sweet Jayne is a complicated girl…
She needs Kasper.
She hides from Donovan.
She has a plan for Logan.
But maybe complicated Jayne isn’t so sweet after all…
In fact, she might just be the biggest villain of them all.
WARNING: Story contains dark taboo themes and violence both sexual and physical which could trigger emotional distress in reader.

This is one of those books I want to rave about so bad. It's so different, so unique...
However, this book had me all of the place. One minute I was loving it, then the next I was cringing
wanting to put it down. I am not sure how to explain it to you. Overall, this is a really good book. I am so glad I read it. But, it felt really rushed in many parts. There were a handful of scenes that felt off or underdeveloped.
I am not sure where I stand with the characters. I didn't really like them. None of them. Jayne was weak, although the author tried to portray her as a strong character willing to do what she needs to do to protect those she loves. I just didn't get that from her.
I had a hard time with the taboo part in this book. Although, I pushed through it. I cringed but sucked it up. When I sit back and really think about it, it wasn't over the top taboo. I think there could have been less references about it, it wouldn't have seemed so.... ick? Anyhow, that's not the point. If you are shirking off this book over the "taboo", don't. It does fit. It was just hard for me to swallow.
I don't even know if I want to talk about Kasper. I didn't like him. Not one bit. He was immature and unrealistic. His hate towards Jayne was a bit much. I think he anger and hate should have come from a different angle in this story. If I am being honest, I just rolled my eyes every time he clung to his hatred.
This book did have my mind going. I tried to connect the dots, and for the most part, I did. Some through me though; I didn't see them coming. With as dark as this book is, I was really hoping for a happy ending. I wasn't sure how that would play out with all of the subplots swirling around. I think that if I could have found a liking to the characters in the book, I would have liked it a lot more. Like I said, there were just parts in the book that felt lacking or off, I needed a little more to them.
Overall, this is a good book. It's dark. A little demented. All kinds of cringe-worthy moments. For those that like the above, I would highly suggest this book.
