I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
SheÔÇÖs a client. ThatÔÇÖs all.
Or it should be.
But with every lesson, sheÔÇÖs becoming more.
The secrets IÔÇÖm hiding behind the image of the Gentleman Mentor make telling her the truthÔÇöand having anything realÔÇöimpossible.
IÔÇÖm training her for another man, and that fact guts me every time I think of it.
I know sheÔÇÖs not mine ÔÇª but part of me wonÔÇÖt accept that.
Am I willing to risk it all to keep her?
He calls himself the Gentleman Mentor.
Just reading his ad makes me feel more alive than I have in years.
He promises to teach me the art of seduction ÔÇª and show me the most sinfully erotic pleasures. HeÔÇÖs going to help me become the kind of confident, sexy woman men canÔÇÖt ignore.
Six lessons ÔÇª with the most gorgeous man ÔÇª who happens to be a Dom.
The only problem ÔÇª now that IÔÇÖve experienced his brand of delectable domination will anyone else ever compare?
THE GENTLEMAN MENTOR is a full-length standalone novel.
Have you ever wanted a guy to notice you so badly you would go to any lengths?┬á What about going out on a limb because you want to become a ÔÇ£betterÔÇØ you?┬á Picture a woman who doesnÔÇÖt realize her allure to the opposite sex.┬á Add in a man who inspires wet dreams, can rival a porn star in bed, and a tornado of emotions.┬á Welcome to the Gentleman Mentor.
Kendall Ryan does a fabulous job of writing a paradoxically enchanting man.┬á┬á With the shell of a ÔÇ£sexÔÇØ mentor, heÔÇÖs a sweet and vulnerable man on the inside. Hale is supposed to guide Brie into her sexuality, but I think Brie is leading Hale to his heart.┬á It all starts off simply enough, but when sex and emotions comingleÔÇªthey never stay simple.
I must say that I absolutely LOVE the dialogue, specifically the initial interactions between Brie and Hale.┬á Hale is aggressive and dominant while being polite and tempered.┬á Like I said, quite the paradox. Brie.┬á Well, Brie comes across a bit lost. ┬áHowever, she doesnÔÇÖt stay that way too long.┬á As she grows into her own, I appreciate her realizations.┬á She figures out what she wants, and that she deserves better than what she has settled for in the past.┬á The question becomes not whether she deserves what she wants, but is she willing to go for it?
Unfortunately, I felt a bit bereft at the end.┬á After taking this journey with these two characters, I felt as though the story wrapped a bit quickly for my taste.┬á I wanted to ride the ride just a little while longer!┬á Overall, this is an enjoyable read.┬á Get to know the naughty gentleman and innocent sex kitten; theyÔÇÖre quite the pair.
