5 of 5 engaging stars
I read the first book in this duet, and gave it what I felt was 5 well-deserved stars. I wish I could take back one of those stars, because while Young Enough is very good, Old Enough is truly worth of a 5 star review.
Have you seen The Pursuit of Happyness? or Pearl Harbor? or Saving Private Ryan? You know that moment when it just seems like the main character/s get no relief from all of the bad things that are happening? There are times in Old Enough when it feels just like that. It gets pretty heavy, but it sure keeps your interest because you want to see if Jane and Brian overcome.
I can’t say enough about this set of books. They are well-written, and sexy, and interesting, and keep you on the edge of your seat. They delve a bit into some proclivities that I haven’t read too much in other books, and I felt that it was really well done.
This is the first time I’ve read a story that takes place in South Africa. Often, the author uses words or phrases that we don’t usually use (like “fell pregnant” instead of “became pregnant”), and it takes me out of the story briefly. But reading about a different culture makes it worth it.
Young Enough is Book 2 of The Age Between Us duet, so you must read Old Enough first. Young Enough is NOT a standalone. You can find the links for each book below. Thanks to #Netgalley for the opportunity to read both of these books.
