Good book, however it wasn't really my taste (ie romance XP)

One of my favorite romance novels! This is definetely Deb Caletti's best! After I read The Nature of Jade, I've fallen in love with some more of Caletti's books but of all the ones I have read so far, none of them can achieve the level of quality in this book.

The first book I read by Deb Caletti was "The 6 Rules of Maybe" and I thought it was O.K. I had a bunch of her books on hold and they were not what I was looking to read. So I cancelled all of the holds except for this one, and it was because I love the name Jade. I read the book and absolutly loved it. I completly disagree with liz_carolanne because it was really nice how the characters got together... for those who read Twilight, Bella and Edward were not sopposed to fall in love... but they did. So if your looing for a easy read with lots of emotion and easy characters this is a good book for you.. but even if your not you should still read this book because you might be supprised.

Great book :)

I liked this book; it was comforting. Although, I must admit, Jade wasn't exactly the most interesting character I've ever seen/read. I kind of felt like a guy like Sebastian would never really fall for a girl like Jade in real life.
