Book 1, The Loan Shark Duet

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Repulsiveness personified, that’s me. I own a mirror, and I’m not afraid to look in it. What you see on the surface is a reflection of what runs under my skin. I’m a loan shark. Breaking people is in my blood. The Haynes’s were supposed to be a straightforward job. Go in and pull the trigger twice. One bullet for Charlie, one for his sister. But when I saw Valentina, I wanted her. Only, in our world, those who owe us don’t get second chances. No way in hell will my mother let her live. So I devised a plan to keep her.

It’s depraved.
It’s immoral.
It’s dubious.

It’s perfect.
Just like her.

(DUBIOUS is the first full-length novel in a two-part duet and ends on a cliffhanger. The second book, CONSENT, is available.)

Customer Reviews

Absolutely addicting!

Absolutely amazing!! Part 1 of the Loan Shark Duet has grabbed hold of me and held me captive from start to finish! This read was addicting in the best way possible. Valentina is such a strong person who will do what she must for those she loves dearly. Gabriel is not one to mess with and everyone knows that. When their paths collide it’s in a tragically beautiful way and all that follows is not for the weak of heart.

A total MUST-READ!!! I’m beyond ready to dive into part 2 of this duet!!!

Hooked & Addicted

This is my first Charmaine Pauls read and I can say with certainty that it will not be my last. It's dark, twisted, sexy and oh so addicting.

Gabriel is sexy, controlling and downright domineering. The chemistry between him and Valentina is hot. Page after page you hope and pray that the characters get some kind of happy ending. Valentina doesn't want to be there but it's her only option to keep herself and her brother safe. But what happens when shes practically set up to fail from the very beginning? Gabriel's mother and his ex are characters you will want to just punch in the face. But they make the story that much more interesting.

There are so many factors to consider in this book and the way Charmaine ends it will have you begging for the next book to see where these characters go from here.

Can't wait for book 2

I couldn't put it down once I started the was very engaging from the start to end....waiting for part 2!
