I don’t actually like Ren! The men in the story are much strong characters and much more likeable than Ren. To be honest, I obviously want everyone to get their HEA but I can’t help thinking Cole and Sean should both walk away and find happiness with another girl lol
I think it is a very clever author who can put out a fairly short book yet make you feel like you’ve actually read something much longer. She has combined telling the story with growing the characters well.
I do hate cliffys but I think it’s par for the course to have a cliffy in a serial!
And now she's getting pissy with Cole, because of blondie. I mean, let the boy explain because Ren should understand how complicated situations can get.
On to the next installment.
Cole is a college student who grew up never feeling like he belonged. When he was a kid, he lost his parents and a couple adopted him they gave him food and a roof over his head but not love or affection. Therefore, it’s not surprising that he falls for Ren his teacher she turns out to be twenty-seven to his twenty. Cole and Ren build a hot and heavy romance until she cuts it off and breaks Cole’s heart. Years later by a huge coincidence they meet again and sparks fly immediately. Can Cole and Ren have a second chance at love? Will Ren’s insecurities about their age difference get in their way? Or will it be Ren’s ex-husband or one of Cole’s random bimbos stepping in to break them apart once again?
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.
RECEIVED AN ARC IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.
That is not the case with the Naked Desire series. The sex scenes are scarce, but well executed. Not to mention the story is so involving that we don't really mind.
Everything is more fast-paced. In just 30 pages, there are enough plot twists and romantic adventures that would fill a "complete" novel.
Eroticism is cleverly intertwined with characterization, and the POVs are not only witty, but believable. The male POV is specially convinceable, although I'd like to see more "show, don't tell", when the Cole, the male "hero", said Renee was a smart, independent businesswoman.
In all, that was a great funny read. I started reading in the end of the day, very tired, but the sex scenes were steamy and plot twists kept me going. The romantic rivals were pretty interesting and although I can already sense how the story will end, I enjoy myself thinking of all the adversities the characters will have to face in order to get their happy ending.
