The Wrong Gentleman by Louise Bay


Release Date: 02.19.2019


Synopsis:


I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.

First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.

But women never keep my attention for more than a night.

Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.

When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.

Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.

Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.

And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.

I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.

I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.


Review:

The Wrong Gentleman was a good and enjoyable read.

Landon and Skylar meet each other in a bar the day before they start to work for the Summer on board of a luxurious yacht.There's an undeniable chemistry between them that will end with a hot roll in the sack.They say goodbye knowing they won't meet again but fate has other plans for them,little they know they will work on the same boat.After an understandable initial awkwardness they surrender to their need for each other,and even if they weren't looking for a relationship they slowly understand how important they are to each other. 

I absolutely love reading Louise Bay's novels.I love the writing,the plot and the location of this one.The sunny mediterranean coast of South France brought me some warm and pleasure during this cold winter.

Excerpt:

“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”


For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”


“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”


“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.


He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”


I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.


“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”


My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”


“Okay?” he asked.


I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.


I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.


He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”


“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.


“Think about it.”
