Title: Seduction in Session
Author: Shayla Black and Lexi Blake
Series: Perfect Gentlemen, #2
Date: January 5, 2016
Privileged, wealthy, and wild: they are the Perfect Gentlemen of Creighton Academy. But the threat of a scandal has one of them employing his most deceptive—and seductive—talents…
Recruited into the CIA at a young age, Connor Sparks knows how dirty the world can be. Only when he’s with his friends can he find some peace. So when an anonymous journalist threatens one of the Perfect Gentlemen, Connor vows to take down the person behind the computer, by whatever means necessary—even if it means posing as his target’s bodyguard.
Publishing a tabloid revealing Washington’s most subversive scandals has earned Lara Anderson the ire of the political scene—and a slew of death threats. To keep herself from ending up a headline, Lara hires a bodyguard, a man as handsome as he is lethal.
When the bullets start to fly, Lara is surprised to find herself in Connor’s arms. But as they begin to unravel a mystery that just might bring down the White House, Lara is devastated when she discovers Connor’s true identity—and finds herself at the mercy of forces who will stop at nothing to advance their deadly agenda.
Alright, I’ll tell you how I feel about this book. Before I was even finished, I was checking to see when the next book was to be released. (Big Easy Temptation – May 3, 2016) I liked the first book in the series, Scandal Never Sleeps, but this one was even better. I think the difference was most of the world building took place in the first book. This one seemed to move faster.
Which brings up something I was a little worried about. I read the first book six months ago and I was afraid I would have forgotten so much, it would be difficult to follow the new book. Fortunately, I had nothing to worry about. The authors did an excellent job of giving just enough backstory for continuity without bogging down the flow of the plot.
Just like in the first book, there is an overarching plotline that is not settled in this book. However, that does not mean there is a cliffhanger. I HATE cliffhangers and have given up on authors who tend to use them. This is not one of those books. The story between Connor and Lara is settled and we are given a lead in for the next book.
What can I say? No, the series is not done, but the ending of the individual books is satisfying. I cannot wait for the next book.
The “brothers” are all back and we get more of their stories. It is obvious that there will be at least three more books, but I am hoping for a fourth. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but there is a plotline that I have hopes for that is not obvious. If so, I think there will be an extra book and that will be great.
I highly recommend the series, but do NOT try to read this book without reading Scandal Never Sleeps. It will mean so much more.
This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
