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.

So Good!!

No spoiler but Chapter 15 was there best! And just when the story got as intense as it could get, Chapter 16 lightened the mood. Well-written ladies.

Nopt

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.

The Black & Blake Ladies are Bad Goddess!!

Because I can't call them the Baddest Beauties Duo Writers Ever! Dear Lord Ms.Shayla & Ms. Lexi have done it again.
The narrator was great. Augustine is my Hero I adore her . I have suspected something since the last book, oh my Lord but did they confirmed it when Gus sneak into the Agents room. I enjoyed this Rollercoaster Ride it made me laugh, cried and the ending made me scream & cry with such emotions. Can't wait for the last book to be released in Audible. I really think I will break and get Zack book.

Riveting

This is Roman Calder and Gus (Augustine) Spencer’s story and oh what a story it is. I was riveted from the first chapter to the last.
Although this can be read as a stand-alone, I personally would recommend you read the first four books. It will give you a better understanding and background to what is happening as there is a continuing story line in the background of the books. Smoke and Sin and is just as action packed as the previous books.
This is a hard review to write as I do not want to give away any spoilers. I love an alpha male, add in a feisty heroine and I am there. The action is fast paced, I was on the edge of my seat and I read this book in almost one read. I just didn’t want to put it down; I had to know what happened! The suspense, drama, plot twists and turns have you on the edge of your seat. I just kept saying to myself, one more chapter and then I’ll stop.
The chemistry between Roman and Gus is obvious and even though there are issues from the past, it is certainly clear that their feelings towards each other have not been resolved. Far from it!
Danger lurks around every corner as Roman and his fellow members of the Perfect Gentlemen Club continue their investigations. All around them the people they love are being put in danger and as we found out in previous books, some have died.
The continuity between the authors was seamless. I have no idea who wrote which part and honestly, it doesn’t matter. It was brilliant from start to finish. A great addition to the series and I cannot wait to read the conclusion to this amazing series.
