Christina’s 5 Blush Review
I absolutely adored everything about this book. From the first time our heroine lays eyes on our hero in the most intriguing of ways, to the extremely satisfying epilogue, Gentleman Sinner is quintessential JEM perfection. We have another damaged yet protective alpha-male in Theo Kane but he’s more than that. Beneath his imposing physical stature, Theo is a kind and loving hero who is so drawn to the heroine in ways he’s not even sure how to explain. Izzy is a great female lead. She strong, having overcome so much in her life. She has a great career as a nurse which she adores, and she has Theo. Lucky lady!
The chemistry between these two is electrifying. My favorite part of this story is the mystery, intrigue and suspense that dominate these pages. I read the last 35% of the book in one sitting with my heart in my throat. I could not put it down. There is so much happening that keeps you literally on the edge of your seat turning pages faster than you thought possible just to know what happens and how it ends. There were a few times in the second half of the book where I literally gasped out loud and my mouth would fall open in shock. There is plenty of shock value in Gentleman Sinner. The epilogue was perfect. It wasn’t rushed or over the top. It was simply a perfect way to end their story.
One last thought on Theo Kane. He’s far from perfect, but he loves so completely. He reminded me of Jesse Ward in some ways. There were times when certain aspects of Gentleman Sinner reminded me of what it felt like to read Jesse and Ava for the first time in This Man. Dare I say it- but Theo Kane might be my favorite JEM hero second only to Mr. Ward. Izzy is definitely a top heroine, for sure. I hope we see more from these characters. I know Gentleman Sinner is a stand-alone but my heart doesn’t want to say goodbye just yet!
Louisa’s 5 Blush Review
I think JEM has set the bar so high with her previous books. Jesse is a hard one to top. However, I have to say, Theo is a fantastic hero. He’s damaged but his heart is in need of some healing and Izzy is just the girl to do it.
“I’m not worthy of your patience, your compassion, or your bravery to take me on.”
Izzy is a strong character and woman who has no idea the change she made immediately to Theo. This book gave us romance with a mix of mystery. Unraveling the story behind Theo’s proclivities is scary and unfortunate. Izzy and Theo’s together and the sparks flew high.
“…he curses, yanking me into him and giving me a bone-crushing cuddle. The sanctuary and comfort of his big chest overwhelms me, and all I can do is cling to him.”
I sat down to read this book, and it was all-encompassing. No chores were completed, a pizza was consumed by the family instead of the meal I had planned. I wanted and NEEDED to continue to read. JEM has once again had my emotions on a roller coaster, and the book hangover was once again – EPIC.
I am hoping that JEM finds it in her heart to give us another taste of the lives of Theo and Izzy…
In the tradition of The Protector, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man series delivers a steamy, suspenseful new standalone romance about a British alpha hero and the one woman who may be able to save him-as long as he can protect her from his dark past.
Gentleman Sinner, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas, is live!
Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she’s so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she’s been so desperate to avoid.
When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane’s notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he’s tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.
As Theo’s demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.
