“Never trust a loan shark. Nine years of paying off my debt is turning into forever.”
"Perversely hot, gritty, and richly textured, Valentina and Gabriel's story is one of the best dark romances I've read." –– Anna Zaires, New York Times bestselling author of Twist Me
When Gabriel broke down my door, he took over my body and life. Never with force, but always with clever manipulation. He stripped me of my independence, my defenses, and my clothes and turned me into an addict. My addiction is him.
Once, I had dreams and a future. Now, I have fears, scars, and insatiable needs. I’m damaged beyond repair, but if I’m to survive the most dangerous man in Johannesburg, I can’t allow him to break me, because broken toys are destined for the garbage dump.
Note: Consent is Book 2 of The Loan Shark Duet and concludes Valentina and Gabriel's story. Dubious (Book 1) must be read first to follow the story.
Loved every second
Such an excellent book. Well written.
Only thing I hated about this series…it ended.
But oh what a fabulous ending. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that one day this extrordinary author will find a way to continue this series, it’s just that good. The characters are so rich and there is still so much story with endless possibilities due to their new lives and working environments. I wouldn’t even mind skeletons from their past reappearing.
Obviously, I’m just not ready to say goodbye to these characters and definitely will reread both of the books.
The readers who are familiar with Charmaine Pauls, they already know she’s a sublime writer. A writer that takes the reader on a compelling journey with her characters. This book Consent, the entire Loan Shark Duet, a FIVE STAR read.
Such an amazing Conclusion!!
What an amazing conclusion to this mind-blowing Duet!! I seriously could not put my kindle down!!! I loved everything about it!!! Quite the emotional rollercoaster that had me enjoying every part of it!!!! Valentina makes stuff happen in this one and in the best way possible. Rhett & Quincy are my all time favorite friends & protectors for her and I love their banter. Gabriel...man, I have no words! He is def one of a kind!
