I like the series and enjoy badass and competent female protagonist but I do wish she weren't quite so macho. The problem is that to (possibly) even out the fact that she is a shapeshifter and hunts vampires, the author has drawn her predictably "good" in every other way:
-religious
-loves kids
-doesn't cuss and doesn't allow others to, in her presence
-is irresistible to all men
-etc.
-crippled with guilt
-etc.

So, weirdly nuanced but when she writes about teh Beast in her, very good empathy and storytelling.

Oh, and the most irritating aspect of this series is her best friend Molly's family. Evan is brutish and unintelligent - a complete Neanderthal with magic. He should be put down like a rabid dog. I have NO idea why Molly would find him appealing or why Jane wouldn't cut him dead. It's an utterly un-nuanced relationship.
