[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Perfect Reflection

Jana Leigh grew up Iowa and got a Masters in Social Work from Iowa State University. She married the love of her life 17 years ago and then retired from Social Work to be a stay at home mom for her three wonderful children. She has always had a love of reading and as the children grew, she discovered that she had another passion, writing. She has published several different series which are available around the world in many different formats. She now lives in Colorado with her family and loves nothing better than to cozy up to her fireplace and write.

Bryce Evans is a mother, a writer, and a wife who loves to escape to the world she built in the Ashland Pack. She burst onto the publishing scene with a hit in The Trinity. Soon, she will be releasing the second in the series, and a new series. 

Perfect Reflection, book #1 of the SHIFTER JUSTICE series

by Jana Leigh and Bryce Evans


Jewel Campbell is a cop through and through; she is also a female wolf shifter. She loves it, lives it, and breaths it. When a series of murders begins in Atlanta, Jewel and her best friend and partner Vander catch the case.

Just when they thought they had a grasp on who the suspect is, Jewel is thrown for a loop when she finds the suspect to be her mate—along with his best friend.

Retten is the Alpha of the New York Pack, sexy, powerful, and rich. Retten is the whole package. His Beta, Lex, works in the New York Police Department. They are shocked to find out Retten is the prime suspect in a serial murder case.

When they all meet, a wave of shock rolls through them as they discover Jewel is their mate. Only the happiness for the men is short lived when Jewel informs them she’s having no part of two men as her mates. Especially if one is a murderer, she doesn’t care how wealthy he is.

However, after some strange facts arise which make Jewel question her mates innocence, they must work together to find a way to prove it all. What happens if it can’t be proven that Retten isn’t responsible? How can she love someone she is going to have to put away forever?

Enjoy the twists and turns that will leave you on the end of your seat, while the story makes you question the old saying, “Love can conquer all.”

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Marta C:
*eBook Gifted to Reviewer by LITERAL ADDICTION in exchange for an honest review

Perfect Reflection is the first book I have read by the authors Jana Leigh and Bryce Evans and is also the first in their Shifter Justice series.

It's the tale of police detective Jewel Campbell (a werewolf) and her case involving a serial killer who murders women in both Atlanta and New York. During her investigation she meets Retten(New York Alpha) and Lex(his Beta)and realizes that they are both her destined Mates. Strong evidence points to Retten being the killer and the attraction between them makes it vital that Jewel get to the truth and catch the murderer as her life is also in danger.

This is a book that ticks a lot of boxes really. It's essentially a shifter tale but its also a mystery and could even be referred to as romantic suspense as there is a very strong storyline. It also features ménage which could put it in the erotica category.

Red herrings are thrown around enough that the fast paced story keeps the pages turning and the passion between the threesome will please many readers.The epilogue sets up nicely for the next instalment which hopefully will feature Jewels partner Vander Collins.

For me, the writing was a little jumpy at times and perhaps did not flow as easily as some books do. I really wanted Retten to be more Alpha male also, but understand that the authors wanted to get across that he was prepared to share the love of his life with his best friend.

LITERAL ADDICTION's Guest Reviewer thoroughly enjoyed this tale, will be looking out for the next book in the series, and gives Perfect Reflection 4 Skulls.
