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 for his touch.
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.
South African born Charmaine Pauls is a gypsy at heart who likes to look at the world from the lens of her camera. She writes dark and paranormal romance novels. The author currently resides in Chile with her husband and children.
Consent starts right where Dubious left us. We jump right in with Valentina and is another wild ride. The second part is even darker, anguish and shocking. Just when you thought you have read it all, this part comes for more.
Valentina now has a lot of more to protect, and she will go beyond her limits to save her and her loved ones. We see new sides of her and she has to face things that would break the hardest soul but she deals with them like the brave woman she is. And then we have Gabriel, OMG! I've seen characters evolve and change but never like him. You sort of expect him to change but he goes beyond our expectations.
The story is addictive like the first part. Anytime you think you have something figure out a new surprise comes and knocks you off your feet. There are some scenes and moments that are way too hard to read (I don't want to spoil anything) but if you are emotional you will found hard not to cry.
I loved the relevance of the secondary characters. They make the story even greater, each one brings a unique quality and enriches the story.
I totally recommend both books. If you liked dark romance, beautiful characters, twists, and drama, you should read these books.
