The second Perfect Gentlemen novel from the New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series.
Privileged, wealthy, and wild: they are the Perfect Gentlemen of Creighton Academy. But the threat of a scandal has one of them employing his most deceptive—and seductive—talents…
Recruited into the CIA at a young age, Connor Sparks knows how dirty the world can be. Only when he’s with his friends can he find some peace. So when an anonymous journalist threatens one of the Perfect Gentlemen, Connor vows to take down the person behind the computer, by whatever means necessary—even if it means posing as his target’s bodyguard.
Publishing a tabloid revealing Washington’s most subversive scandals has earned Lara Anderson the ire of the political scene—and a slew of death threats. To keep herself from ending up a headline, Lara hires a bodyguard, a man as handsome as he is lethal.
When the bullets start to fly, Lara is surprised to find herself in Connor’s arms. But as they begin to unravel a mystery that just might bring down the White House, Lara is devastated when she discovers Connor’s true identity—and finds herself at the mercy of forces who will stop at nothing to advance their deadly agenda.
Kaylee: This is the first book I have read by these authors, but I really liked it and will be reading more for sure. I think it would have been better if I had already read Scandal Never Sleeps, the first book in this series, but we’re just going with it.
After someone in his company is killed, Connor will stop at nothing to take down the person responsible. Lara is a political blogger who posted something incriminating online that’s leading to death threats and a need for a bodyguard. Connor goes in as her bodyguard to get close to her and get the information he thinks she has about the killer. They don’t count on falling for each other, or what that can mean when they each realize more than meets the eye when it comes to both of them.
I loved Connor. He was sexy and so loyal. And a crazyhot dirty talker! The story was compelling, and I can definitely see this being a TV show. What I didn’t like was Connor and Lara. I didn’t like her and thought their relationship was unrealistic. Connor is willing to do anything for his brothers, and I can’t see Lara getting in the way of his vision of what that is–no matter what. There’s also a cliffhanger at the end of this book, which I didn’t really appreciate. Still, this was a heart-pounding, fast-paced read with action and hotness abounding. I’ll definitely be reading the next book in this series.
