  • Heavy but beautifully written

    Even with a slightly more serious tone A Gentleman Never Keeps Score is another great Cat Sebastian book full of wonderfully soft heroes and a deeply caring relationship. Sebastian’s writing always sucks me in at the beginning of a story and keeps me hooked until my heart is ready to burst with happiness. This book was especially poignant because of the issues that were being addressed and I felt Sebastian handled them all really well, especially Hartley’s history. Even though Hartley can be grumpy and defeatist about his situation his true nature shines through in the way he treats his household staff and others he cares about. I absolutely loved the little family that Hartley ends up creating and how he learned that the illusion of being a gentleman means nothing if you don’t have anyone to share your life with. This is where Sam come in — he shows Hartley that he’s worth that happiness and that even with some of his quirks and his issues he deserves love just like everyone else. But there are some hard circumstances between Sam and Hartley, mainly that they come from different social classes and since Sam is black he’s also treated differently than even a white man in his social standing would be treated. For a while there I wasn’t even sure how they were going to resolve some of these issues and find a long-term option for a relationship but I shouldn’t have doubted Sebastian because she always finds a way! Because of Hartley’s history there’s more of a slow burn between them but that doesn’t mean that these two don’t find ways to be together. In fact, I loved Hartley and Sam’s more unconventional sexual relationship because it showed that every couple can be different in what they enjoy. Hartley has a lot of particulars about what he needs in order to feel safe and comfortable and the way Sam meet those requests just squeezed my heart every time. Because of his large stature and his history as a ruthless boxer, people might assume that Sam would be rough and aggressive but instead he’s a gentle giant and I loved every part of it. Sam is pretty much the perfect hero: understanding of Hartley’s limitations, dedicated to his friends and family, and honorable to his core.

    Thanks for your feedback!
