My Review:  3.5 Stars

As I read these three novella’s I flipped between a 3 star review and a four star review in my head. By the end of the last book, I settled on a 3.5 star review. Let me explain why.

I really liked the May / December romance aspect of the story. I thought Cole and Ren were great together. I loved reading about them whether they were talking or having sex the heat between them jumped off the page. Cole goes from a jerk who just sleeps around to a sexy as sin guy who wants nothing more than to convince the love of his life that they belong together.

What I didn’t like was that the characters were missing something for me. Maybe it was because the novellas were short; there wasn’t enough time to develop deeper characters. I found myself wanting to know Cole and Ren when they first met. The way the author told that background story of the characters was fantastic. If I had that story, first I think these novellas set years later would have been so much more thrilling for me. Maybe if it were written as a full novel, there would have been more time to give the characters more life. There are bunches of surprises and plot twists that will definitely keep your interest.

All the characters had such great potential to be these amazing full characters, but in a novella, there just isn’t enough time for that kind of character development. The author ties everything up nicely at the end and that’s why I went with the higher rating. She really did a great job writing an interesting story and again, my favorite was the older woman, younger man scenario.

These were the first books from Rhyme Devereux that I have read she certainly knows how to do a scorching sex scene the public ones were swoon worthy. I would definitely read her books again; I just would like her to show me more from the characters.  If you are looking for a good storyline with an older woman, young man romance, steamy sex, betrayal, lies and a little blackmail too, you will like these quick reads.
