Synopsis

Her heart is in his hands…
 
After her marriage ends in betrayal, Eleanora Howard finds herself struggling to navigate the dating scene as a thirty-one-year-old divorcee. But feeling undesirable, and living alone in the house she once shared with her ex, is hardly the recipe for finding new love—until she meets Rob. He’s just the kind of charming, old-fashioned guy she needs—but he’s also eager for intimacy…
 
After serving in the Air Force and getting a well-paid civilian career, Rob Vanderhoff planned to settle down with the right woman and raise a family. But at thirty-six, he’s still single and searching—until he meets Eleanora. She’s everything he wants. All he has to do is draw her out of her shell. Soon he’s taking her on high school-style dates, fanning the flames of her desire—and helping Nora re-discover the sexy, adventurous woman they both know she really is…

    full of emotion

    I really enjoyed reading Her Shirtless Gentleman - and the way the book gets its title is just too darn cute ... like a lot of the book actually. Eleanora is out of an emotionally abusive marriage, really insecure but hoping she is ready to start dating again. But it has been so long she isn't sure of the rules anymore and her confidence is severely dented, thanks to her husband.. She's also out there with younger women, coworkers who really aren't anything like her, so they aren't exactly on the same page when it comes to looking for men. Luckily for her, because of unfortunate circumstances she's thrown together with the absolutely awesome (and gentlemanly) Rob. Rob is in his mid-30s & way past flings and Eleanor is just the kind of woman he can see himself spending the rest of his life with. Because she's still dealing with issues from her marriage, though, he has to take it slow and put a lot of thought into wooing her ... which he does beautifully. His dates show imagination and care and that he pays attention to the woman he's with. I loved it! We could all be so lucky :) If I have any complaints, it is with Rob actually. As wonderful as he is, I think that he comes off just a little desperate for a wife. If it had just been Eleanor that he was like that with then I would be OK with it, but he mentions that some of his previous relationships ended because he started talking marriage too quickly. I've got nothing against a man who is interested in commitment, but that just didn't sit all that well with me. But it was minor and the only thing I had a problem with so it was easy to get over. Sweet and full of emotion, Her Shirtless Gentleman gives readers a uplifting story about a woman discovering herself again and the man who supports her while she finds her confidence.

    Sooooooo Good!!!

    Already being a fan of M.Q. Barber from her Neighborly Affection series, I had a feeling this was going to be a great book, and I have to say, I was not disappointed. Her Shirtless Gentleman was incredibly sweet and passionate and empowering and hopeful and the kind of book that just makes you feel good. Rob and Nora are such a beautiful couple and their journey to love is nothing short of magical, yet grounded in reality at the same time. Ms. Barber has a genuine gift for writing true to life characters who still manage to find real true love in today's world. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an erotic yet heartfelt book. You won't be disappointed!
