I’m old enough to drive a car, buy alcohol, and enter a club.
I’m old enough to take responsibility for my actions.
I’m old enough for her.
No matter what her middle-aged friends or society says.
No matter she’s the age of my mother.
No matter why or how I met her.
I’ll take those secrets to my grave.
And her with them.
If those secrets don’t ruin us first.

Charmaine Pauls was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. She obtained a degree in Communication at the University of Potchestroom, and followed a diverse career path in journalism, public relations, advertising, communications, photography, graphic design, and brand marketing. Her writing has always been an integral part of her professions.

After relocating to Chile with her French husband, she fulfilled her passion to write creatively full-time. Charmaine has published nine novels since 2011, as well as several short stories and articles. Two of her shorts have been selected by the International Literary Society for an anthology from across the African continent.

When she is not writing, she likes to travel, read, and rescue cats. Charmaine currently lives in France with her husband and children. Their household is a linguistic mélange of Afrikaans, English, French and Spanish.


Jane and Brian story couldn't be further from conventional. A twentyish young man, a fortyish divorce woman with a teenager daughter and lots of baggage. A man offering money to seduce the woman just for revenge and a man who likes dark, hard and passional sex, ok... let's see how all of this works.

Jane has a perfect life, a husband, a daughter, her lovely house and a solid job. But when it all starts to crumble little by little, she meets Brian. They have a weird a first encounter, with him breaking into her house to use her pool. Litlle by little he starts to enter her life, offering help she much needs and then waking up a part of her that she thought was dead. 

Their chemistry is undeniable, whenever they meet the tension becomes too much and fire threats with breaking in. Brian is a dominant and possessive man who will stop at nothing to make Jane his. The sex scenes are full of passion, desire, and lust. 

Jane and Brian have to face many obstacles in their relationship, not only because of the age gap but because Jane wants it to be a secret and for now it works. 

The book ends leaving you waiting for what's next, so you definitely need to read the second book. I love Charmaine writing, she is really good at creating amazing characters and solid plots. This one is just another proof that she is an excellent writer.
