**I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review**
This second book in her The Age Between Us duology/thing made me a fan! I’ll be honest, I was kinda worried that I wasn’t going to like this one since the first part (Old Enough) left a bad taste in my mouth. I am so glad, though, that I was stubborn enough to want to see this story through. Charmaine Pauls really brought her A game with this!
The relationship between Jane and Brian has, obviously, already been established and we know they they are head over heels in lust with each other. But this book brings out the romance! I really felt the connection between the two beyond the kinky sex. Though there were times where I wanted to shake Brian and say “what the hell is wrong with you?!” I felt that he matured so much through this. I feel like he learned to let go of some of his bossy possessiveness and let Jane be Jane. And, let’s be honest, I’m really glad he did because some of the things he was doing was making my teeth clench in disgust. Dominance is okay, but there were times he went too far. But again that was in his character and he had to grow up.
As for the plot itself, yes there was just so much going on, but it felt more like everything that was happening was happening for a reason. I was actually moved to tears, and moments of gagging (as in gagging in horror) at what poor Jane was going through. She was a hell of a woman to be able to endure all of what she had to endure and still come out strong.
Would I Recommend?
There is strong sex scenes in this, but if you are looking for a hell of a ride with some kink, this is the book for you! Definitely recommend!
