I am on the fence about Shades of Gray. While there are some definite pluses there are some parts that were fairly disturbing. I was so affected by an occurrence at the beginning that I had to wait awhile before I could continue reading. I think it’s because I have grown to love all of these characters throughout the series so much that I couldn’t stand anything bad happening to them. While I know crappy things happen in reality all the time it was very hard to witness this fictional act even though I knew it was fictional. Perhaps that’s crazy but that is just how it affected me at the time. This will not keep me from reading the rest of this series because it is still one of my favorites.
PJ and Cole are a couple that is meant to be and I am glad they got their own story I just wish it didn’t have to be so hard on both of them. There were parts that I enjoyed. The affection between PJ and Cole was great and the camaraderie between them and their team was fantastic. While the first part of the plot I did not enjoy I was happy with where it went in the end.
