The Wrong Gentleman
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
A stand-alone novel.
LOGAN WOLF IS MR. RIGHT! LOVE HIM!
The Wrong Gentleman is another wonderful five-star read by Louise Bay. This book is a standalone but features recurring appearances by Hayden Wolf and Avery Walker from The Ruthless Gentleman. Hayden and Landon are British brothers and this book features Landon, who is working undercover security in the South of France.
He meets Skylar Anderson prior to reporting to work on a luxury yacht and they have a night filled with passion. She is chief stewardess, a job previously held by Avery, and learns the next day that she and Landon will be working together on the same luxury yacht. They agree to remain professional, but have an undeniable connection that neither can shake.
I immediately liked Landon; he is smart, skilled, savvy, established, protective, and totally smitten with Skylar. As most men are in the military, he is also humble, honest and noble, and of course handsome with a perfect physique. He needs to focus on his assignment, but instead, for the first time in his life, finds himself filled with foreign romantic feelings for his beautiful co-worker.
I love how they form a slow friendship, have mutual respect for one another, and how they get to know each other and let down their guard little by little. Louise writes so engagingly that I truly felt for each character and understood what they were going through. Her descriptions are very vivid and you feel as if you are there with them on their journey.
I loved and admired Skylar so much as she was independent, hardworking, a good friend, loyal, and a bit broken from a tragic past. She is cautious towards men and doesn’t believe in true love, so she focuses on just settling for someone who could meet her ambiguous checklist. I love how Landon recognizes this and is ever so patient and kind towards her. Through his actions, he reiterates over and over how special she is, how he is interested in her and only her, and how he will be there for her. The only thing he can’t be with her is honest, and it is the one thing that she needs the most.
There is a part towards the end of the book where he had to do something inconceivable to protect her, and I just wanted to smack him! Even though her heart was breaking, Skylar once again rose to the occasion with class and dignity and moved forward. At the end of the book, everything is revealed and Landon rights his wrongs with the woman he loves. I really admired her and how she took time to think things through and decided to trust in her feelings to be with the man she loves.
This book was full of passion, angst, a bit of mystery, family, traveling to exotic destinations, and finding your soulmate. As with all of Louise’s books, this is a MUST READ. You will be breathless with anticipation turning page after page to find out what happens next and for Landon and Skylar. The last chapter is my favorite!
