This was the first book I have read by Charmaine Pauls. I was very intrigued by the synopsis, and after reading Ms. Pauls bio, I knew I just couldn’t pass on reading this book. I found this book to be very different and I am so glad that I took the opportunity to read it. I loved the twist of the older woman and younger man. I really enjoyed the author’s style of writing, and the attention to character development was spot on.
This is Jane and Brian’s story. I immediately fell in love with Jane, how could I not, she has both a tragic and courageous side to her. I was amazed by how Ms. Paules was able to develop Brian’s character, who is only nineteen, into a strong, dominant but also caring man. The way these two characters meet was definitely out of the ordinary, a bit of a twist there. The author also did a great job in developing the secondary characters some of which I liked and wanted to hug and some I really wanted to slap.. Right. Across. The. Face!!! You will have to decide for yourself on that account. I also enjoyed all the conflict between the characters in this book.
The story was both detailed and fast-paced, with deceit, lies and everything in between and that kept me turning the pages and reading well into the night. There was also some interesting plot twists that I didn’t see coming. Some of the storylines were sad, but how the characters dealt with these issues had me admiring them even more. The romance that develops between Jane and Brian was spectacularly written. Loved the forbidden romance and the erotic scenes were panty melting. I honestly could not put this book down. There is a cliffhanger, and I will be insane till the end of August when the next book is published. The saving grace is I know it will be another outstanding read, so worth the wait. Old Enough is NOT a book that you should pass up. Happy reading.
