Smashwords book reviews by Jeanne Jernegan

  • That Which is Unexpected on June 03, 2013

    I liked it alot, then it dawned on me after reading the end of this one, then the synopsis of the second one that the heart of the story is really about unrequited love.... That said, I'd definitely recommend the first, pass on the second and hope for the 3rd, lol.

    Everyone in this story loses... Some concepts certainly jumped the shark, like water proof perfume (perfume used to mask scent and apparently held after skinny dipping) lol...
  • Water on Sep. 26, 2013

    This book felt more like a "stockholm syndrome" story. It felt more like a man had written it or a fanatical tree hugger! Very disturbing that from beginning to end Kaitlain is abducted, betrayed, abused and used by the very people purporting to live a green lifestyle... the absurdity is Kaitlain is suppose to be Gaia herself, yet she's constantly mistreated. Which makes it hard to believe anyone in the "7" really care anything for her, personally. This is a no win situation, she's doomed if she works with them (they can't be trusted) and she's doomed if she doesn't. Story left me too disturbed to like it.
  • The Creation of Kaitlyn Jones on Oct. 07, 2013

    Ending of book 1, may be enough to stop me from going any further with series. Even though it was well written, I would of preferred this series was about Tom instead of Kaitlynn!!!
  • Glamour (Rae Wilder #1) on Feb. 18, 2014

    Just another story where the hero gets stuck with a soul mate that will never put him first!
  • So Much to Learn on Feb. 23, 2014

    Great read! Really enjoyed it. Loved the characters especially Matt/Tallys mom, she's a hoot and a half!
  • Life in the Palace (Book 1 - The Palace Saga) on Feb. 24, 2014

    Interesting concept but deeply flawed. "Only thing evil needs to succeed is for good men to do nothing"!
  • Life in the Palace (Book 1 - The Palace Saga) on March 03, 2014

    This story didn't need "to fight evil" when clearly the palace inhabitants/believers do more damage than the evil they supposedly fight against, lol... Thats a major flaw of the storyline and seems more a story about how peoples lives get messed up by cults.
  • Just Good Friends on March 26, 2014

    A cute romance story, I liked it.
  • The Rise of Rachel Stark on March 28, 2014

    Dissapointed it was published without being finished. It shows a chapter 10... but its blank.
  • Nashville - Part One - Ready to Reach on April 07, 2014

    Nice story but it didn't feel like a romance story because the heroine is still waiting/hoping for love. It just felt more like unrequited love for the heroine since the guy she's crushing on has a girlfriend. And its just my opinion but unrequited love isn't romantic.
  • Friends Don't on April 07, 2014

    Kathryn brought on her misery all by herself by lying to Julie that she liked Larry. I agree it was hard to like kathryn because she lived by rules she made up as she went, and expected everyone to know them. I almost wanted the hero to walk away because he was awesome and deserved better.
  • Laura's Big Win on April 17, 2014

    I didn't like how Mary never let go. Having Mary involved in the news of twins at same time telling Ryan of "the secret place" was sure to cloud any joy he had over the twins. I appreciate Lauras grace remembering Mary, but you don't announce twins and in next breath remind him of a lost love. Good way for Mary to insure she's attached to the twins though in Ryans mind though. Just felt underhanded.
  • The Prodigal Son on May 08, 2014

    Alot going on, but overall enjoyed reading Dannys story.
  • Rhodes to Crazy on Sep. 15, 2014

    This was a good read, would like more from this author.
  • Forgemaster (Book 1 in the Spirit Guide Saga) on Sep. 25, 2014

    A Great Read!!!
  • Forever Destiny on Oct. 01, 2014

    I honestly usually enjoy this author, but this story just felt wrong. Two insecure people looking for acceptance, security just didn't equate a "forever after" love. It felt more like star crossed lovers who were cursed (Val and her 1st love). Enzo deserves better.
  • Broken Watermelons on Oct. 11, 2014

    Now this was a good read!
  • Forever Hearts on Oct. 11, 2014

    Interesting story even though I disagreed with the author on the triangle angle. Frankly, she ended up with the wrong guy! This was more about her settling for what her family (mom) wanted than any true love.
  • Fledge on March 04, 2015

    Loved it.
  • A Fool's Heart on March 26, 2015

    I really disliked how the author handled the twins situation, if it wasn't for that I'd of given it a 5.
  • Luminary (Expanded Edition) on May 05, 2015

    I liked it, not sure of the main character motive though (which seems like the authors cliffhanger, lol). So I'm pretty sure there will be a sequel.
