Publisher's Summary

More than a decade ago, Roman Calder had a scorching affair with the sister of one of his best friends. Augustine Spencer drove him so crazy he thought of nothing but her. The only thing they did more often than heat the sheets was fight. Unprepared for the intensity of their relationship, Roman broke things off and concentrated on things that made sense to him: his career and putting his best friend, Zack Hayes, in the White House.

Gus Spencer is known to Washington insiders as the president's secret weapon. Gorgeous and brilliant, Gus runs the press pool with the determination of a shark. No one dares to cross her, not when she's known for having a spine of steel...but long ago one man melted her down. Despite the fact that she'll never forgive Roman for breaking her heart, now that they work together she can't get him off her mind.

When a dangerous investigation leads both Roman and Gus to London, the heat between them becomes unbearable. As they begin to unravel an international conspiracy, they find themselves falling all over again. But when a killer threatens their world, can they fight to stay together or will the sins of their past keep them forever apart?

Contains mature themes.

Wow... just wow! The Plot Thickens!

Talk about a cliffhanger.... I really hate the thought of waiting another year to find out what happens next with The Perfect Gentlemen and their wives! Roman and Gus are sexy and explosive. It’s nice to get a few more pieces to this intricate puzzle and the backstory as well. Lots of intrigue, but this was also an emotional ride. I really love how seamlessly Black and Blake weave these couples into the overlying thriller that runs from the first book until now- with virtually no plot holes. Each player is described in such detail, from the inside out, they come alive , and it’s so easy to become invested in these relationships. These are definitely not stand alones-you have to start at the beginning-and it’s time well spent. The dialogue is fantastic, though sometimes during the action I felt like Roman and Gus were each in their own heads just a little bit too much. The sexual chemistry between these two is off the charts, and when they get together it’s intimate,erotic, and all consuming. I got all the feels. One of the things I love about these books & this couple is that they are adults-in their late 30’s, have made mistakes, are still falling in love, still sexy, confident, mature enough to work things through, take responsibility for their choices, willing to take risks emotionally.....eventually. This is truly a sophisticated, witty, twisted, suspenseful, mysterious, romantic, erotic, political thriller. It was worth the wait and definitely everything I anticipated and more. I couldn’t put it down! I need more!!!! Greg Boudreaux nailed the narration of this, he did the women’s voices and the occasional accent with ease- even differentiating between English/British accents and maintained southern accents making the characters easily identifiable. Absolutely worth the credit or cash, and I will be listening again-I think I might even have to start at book 1 and listen to them all again now that I have more of the story! These never get old! I’m going to try and be patient for the next installment of The Perfect Gentlemen......❤️

Best yet!

Have loved all of the books in this series but this one was my favorite! So much fun and suspense and as usual, very sexy, and right now I am just hoping that the next and I suspect last book in the series will not be too far behind.

Sex was everything

This story started out really good, but as always, sex rule the H and h. How can a woman accept shallow man who broke her heart. I never understood these authors who wrote women as a doormat. These authors made the women to be strong. However, when it comes to “ dick” they turn out to be weak. This story was just that! Wow! Soooo sad that the writers just can’t make strong heroine. They always end up like a doormat. Sooo sooo sad! If you love sex that rule heartbreak, this one is for you!

Nope

This man did everything he could to disrespect & humiliate this woman & she just kept coming back for more. The mysteries involving the president & the murder were interesting but the love story was crap.

Unexpected bombshell

I have loved this series and these families! They have all been such a large part of each other's family for so long and to see each one of them fall in love and fall so hard has been so moving. Each one has found their perfect match, strong forceful women, amidst the backdrop of mystery and murder. All while protecting the president from a scandal that would rock the world! Definitely going to be reread multiple times!

Wonderful politically written

I really enjoyed this political thriller. I learned so much and I’m grateful that the author took us on this wild adventure. I thought Gus was bad ass and I loved that the author made her beautiful brilliant and sassy. I also really enjoyed the friendships and the loyalty Amongst each other. I definitely worth a credit. I’m onto the last and final book in the installment.

OMG, so thrilling and sexy!

I think this is my fav in the series so far, it was breathtaking, on the edge of your seat exciting and smokin hot. Roman was actually my least fav character out of the entire bunch but he finally got his act together. Gus was one heck of an exciting female and stole the show. And the secret bombshell that was dropped, OMG, won’t spoil it for you, you’ve got to listen to the entire series. Can’t wait for the next one. Terrific narration by Mr Boudreaux.
