    intriguing start to a new series!

    This is the first in The Perfect Gentleman series, about 6 childhood friends who have all attained positions of power or prestige (or both) as they’ve graduated from their boarding school past into the real world. Unfortunately, one of them, Maddox, has also ended up dead. The mystery of his death and the romantic entanglements of the five men left is the basis of the series. In this particular story, after we’re introduced to the main characters, it’s Gabriel, the billionaire aeronautics playboy, who will be searching for his happy ever after. When he meets a lovely woman at a bar after his best friend’s funeral, a one-night stand quickly turns into a whole weekend of passionate lovemaking. But come Monday, when it turns out the woman he was with, Everly, worked for Maddox in cyber security and that the company has become Gabriel’s via Maddox’s will, their anonymous encounter has far-reaching implications. Rumors abound that Everly and Maddox were intimately involved, and as Gabriel’s pregnant sister had been involved with Maddox (who for unknown reasons had unceremoniously dumped her prior to his death), his duty to family insists that he fire Everly. But his attraction to her is too strong, and when it appears that Maddox’s death was no accident, they are both caught up in a dangerous game of lies and mistrust. The clock is ticking and as the investigation takes a sinister turn, one of them could wind up dead– unless they can find out the truth and learn to trust each other. It should be noted that while this book is quite lengthy, the full mystery of Maddox’s death remains unsolved though lots of things are revealed and there is a fair amount of action and suspense. If you are looking for a story with a complete resolution, you won’t find it here. However the romantic story arc between Gabriel and Everly is complete, and it’s clear that the next story will involve another of the perfect gentlemen even while continuing the suspense plot introduced in this one. The story has a lot going for it, with continual eyebrow-raising surprises from one chapter to the next. In fact, just when I thought I knew what was going on, I was blindsided by another plot twist, so if you enjoy that kind of story, you’ll definitely like this one. The romance between Gabriel and Evelyn started out great, with their weekend of fun sexy times to forget their troubles. As the story progressed, I felt like their romance got overshadowed by the rest of the plot and they go through an on again/off again relationship. There was a lot of mistrust on Gabriel’s side in the beginning in believing that Everly hadn’t been sleeping with his friend (even though she’s quite truthful about their platonic relationship) and then once Gabriel has decided that he believes her, she freezes him out for a while too. The sex between them is definitely steamy and well written. But I would have liked to see them trusting each other a little sooner, the back and forth got a bit tiresome. Gabriel also starts out as a more alpha male character at the beginning, but kind of stepped back and his character didn’t have the same zing for me as it did at the start. I liked Everly and it was great to see a female character in the geeky computer role, though she did seem a bit naive to me at times and I felt like there were some computer issues that she should have been able to figure out sooner based on her job. Still, the two of them together made a likable couple. Gabriel does a good job of making Everly understand that she is beautiful even if she’s a bit curvier than his usual women. By the end of the story there’s been a lot going on, many character introductions, and still unresolved plot lines that hopefully will be addressed in the next book in the series, which I’m looking forward to reading. 3.5 stars.

    Erotic Romantic Suspense

    1st Third of the book: 5 Stars Last Two-Thirds of the book: 3 Stars Heat Level -- 5 Stars Total -- 3 ½ Stars The first third of Scandal Never Sleeps was excellent. It pulled me into the story of a group of boys from a private boarding school. Years later, they are attending the funeral of one of their own and Gabe sees a beautiful woman. They meet at a gathering at a bar after the service and decide to spend the weekend together. After the weekend is over we learn that Gabe has inherited Maddox Crawford’s company and Eve is a security executive for the company. This is where things go south. Gabe is an Alpha-Hole. He keeps accusing Eve of sleeping with Maddox. He hires investigators to get the dirt on Eve. It doesn’t seem to matter how much she denies sleeping with Maddox, Gabe doesn’t believe her. Then he begs her forgiveness. Gabe didn’t grovel enough for me and Eve forgave/trusted him to easily. Eve is not TSTL, she is a smart, strong woman. But she should have made Gabe grovel. He didn’t. There is more murder, mystery and espionage to uncover. One of the villains really surprised me, but Eve figured it out quickly. I told you she was smart. And this book is only the beginning. I’m off to read Book 2.

    Very disappointed

    First half was all steamy sex and little story line. I didn't reLise it was part of a series when I bought it and when it finally got into a story it did not have a conclusion. A trilogy etc should have a conclusion to each book but build on the characters for the next book. I began to think I had just bought a pornographic book with no storyline. Very disappointed

    Good Read

    I found it to be a bit confusing in the beginning as to who was who and what was going on, but as I got into the book, I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to Book 2
