I've never known how good it could feel to be taken care of by a man who knew what he was doing.

Until I was with Hugo...


I was older than her.

She was innocent, hadn't experienced all that life had to offer.

I could give her that experience.

Silver foxes do it for me... so that cover? <3 While I'm aware that these stories are meant to be quick and dirty, I didn't feel Sabine and Hugo really got developed as characters. Hugo very obviously had the hots for his friends' daughter and finally decided to act on it. She reciprocated. They have sex. Fast forward a few years in an epilogue that shows only what one would expect... done. That's it. No dealing with parents and their reaction, friends...nothing. The bits I did read were good ...more

Unless we are talking about vampires, werewolves, shifters and other mythological creatures, I don't think I can tolerate this age difference.
I think it is a bit gross LOL

Anyway, I suppose after a while the age difference won't matter.
When she becomes 80, he will be 102. Somewhere in that age, I am sure the lovely couple will find a common ground.

3 - "Age is just a number." Stars!

Experienced, is the first book/novella I have read by Jenika Snow, and if you like your romance very light, with a side of Silver-Fox, then this high-speed novella will be right up your street.

Staying away for all these years had been the hardest damn thing I’d ever done in my life…

It’s hard to write a long and comprehensive review about something that was so short and without much development to it to be honest with you. Hugo at 50 is the oldest H that I thin

I read this for you, Jess, to suffer with you.

Ok, so it's a book about a 50 something guy and a 22 yr old girl. Excuse me while I hurl. He has white hair too, double hurl. I am not into the silver or white foxes. Not sexy. The only reason this got 2 stars over 1 is because he kept saying everything was for her and moved his life to accommodate hers. So that was nice, especially when you didn't think about how he was a longtime friend of her dad's. Yuck. I think this was meant to be set in the 1

This is exactly what I knew it would be! A short, steamy novella, perfect for an evening read.
Hugo & Sabine have waited long to be together. He is way older than her and she is a beautiful inexperienced girl, ready to be swept away.
Follow them as they give in to their passion.
If youbare looking for something short and steamy loom no further!

4 Stars!

Before reading this book, I already know there's a very big age gap. I love older man-younger woman romance books and read a lot but not as big as this one, if I remember correctly. Yes, I enjoyed it. I just didn't like something in the epilogue.

The story is about Hugo, 50 and Sabine, 21.

Hugo is friends with Sabine's family. But he stayed away from them since her eighteenth birthday. It's the time he realized he wanted her. They didn't see each other for four years.

Now that Sabine had graduated

I am loving this Real Man series.  It's been sexy, often sweet and in this case, a little taboo.  Not only is Hugo her father's best friend, he is also almost 30 years older than her. 

Hugo is Russian businessman who falls in love with his best friend's daughter.  Being 50 years old, he has experienced a lot of life.   He leaves Sabine to finish school, never telling her about his feelings. While away, he is celibate.

Sabine felt more mature than your average 21 year old.  She is a recent college
Well, this wasn't my favorite in this series. I do love the older man/younger woman troupe but something was just missing for me here. I'm not exactly sure what other than I just didn't get a good feel for the characters. They were sort of one dimensional and while I know this is just a "quickie" I still want to "know" them a bit. It just seemed "off". I have really enjoyed this series though. And can we take a minute to just admire that cover? *sigh*

Took a chance because I like the OTT males but it hasn't changed my view of huge-age-gap romances

h is 21 and H is 50 - it's not romance for me if I know one of them is gonna die of old age fairly soon, leaving the other behind to pine for their deceased loved one

Just did not like it. Did not like the MCs or the story. He was too old for her, she was too naïve. It just did not work for me.

The tone of this story was sweet and very tame, not at all smutty or dirty, and the element of excitement was absent.

Sabine is 21. Hugo's 50. The sexiness of the story that should be there because of the wide age gap almost felt muted, like the author was trying to be very careful about the fact that Hugo watched this girl grow into adulthood. There's no conflict, either, so the main characters are able to confront each other about their feelings and explore one another freely. The sexy times b

It is hard for me to give a negative comment when the book comes with a disclaimer at the beginning that tells exactly what to expect. Yes, I would have liked more character development but I knew going in it was a short and sweet story. Plus there is something about this cover that I just adore. :0)

Book 4 Experience of the Real Man series by Jenika Snow
Love disclaimer at start of every Real man book.
Warning: If you’re into super short, hot, dirty reads containing a much older hero and younger heroine … keep on reading. This story is guaranteed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, give you that sweet HEA we all deserve, and make you want to search out an experienced older man for yourself.
Sabine is 20yrs younger then Hugo and Hugo is best friends with her father.
After Hugo and Sabi
SB*needs low angst books*
This was a nice steamy short.

Sabine has always wanted Hugo but was too young. Now that she is older Hugo is about to make his move since he has wanted her for a while now too.

This is no drama and really sweet and hot. I think for me it worked because the heroine never comes across bratty or immature. The hero comes across very respectful and totally into her period.

The reason for not high stars is because of the length and nothing really standout about it but a really nice pass the time and so
Yeah. This one is a total skim/DNF. IIRC, I DID skim to the end but in reality, I file this one under DNF.

Why? Cause it was bullshit and I was bored shitless. I did not believe a dang word that came out of either character's mouth. All I could do is roll my eyes super hard.

I just couldn't be bothered re-reading the same crap that I got from all of the other books but THIS time we have a Silver Fox instead of a young millionaire Alpha. Because that makes this different. Even though they are all

Too short to really give it a shining 5 star but it was an ok read. Nothing really special, H/h age gap is quite big but at the same time you don't really feel that. Everything really just happened so fast I got really nothing else to say. lol. If you're familiar with this author then you know what I mean.

Still a good read specially for readers who likes old/young couple love story. :)

This book had me at the cover! Way Beyond yummy!! Hugo and Sabine bring the kindle melting heat!! He's decades older, experienced, worldly..and desperate to have Sabine. Hugo's waited, watched and planned when he would tell Sabine that she is his, only his, forever ... Kinda taboo, kinda forbidden but beyond tempting and Hugo can't wait one day longer to take Sabine's body, heart and soul..... Phew!! HOT!! Hugo's commanding Russian accent just puts the cherry on this sexy sweet book-sundae! Fama ...more

- 4.5 stars -

In this book we meet Hugo Romanav and Sabine.
Hugo is twenty years senior to Sabine who is just twenty-one.

But come on age is just a difference.
Who wouldn't want an experienced, hot, Russian man?

I loved the story from the beginning and it was sweet and very sexy.
When this man says he's experienced, he is very experienced, ok?
He is very sweet towards Sabine. Always trying to give her the best and making her happy.
And man those sex scenes. Had me all hot and bothered. Making me want

This was somewhere between average to good read. Not hot but mostly sweet, with a nice epilogue. I loved the cover page of the book though!
*personal rant*
Though I grew up reading Diana Palmer may December romances, I have realized that the maximum age difference I am comfortable with between a fictional couple is between 15-20 years. Here the couple had 29 which was a bit weird for me. That being said, he was really caring and not creepy so that made up for it.
Safe read
