Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling authors of the Masters of Ménage series present the third scintillating novel featuring the privileged, wealthy, wild men of Creighton Academy - the Perfect Gentlemen. 

Years ago, Naval officer Dax Spencer and NCIS agent Holland Kirk indulged in a steamy affair - until she betrayed him in the wake of his father's death. Dax tried to put her behind him with a payback of his own. But he never forgot Holland.... 

Now, as Dax and his fellow Perfect Gentlemen unravel a web of lies, he discovers his family's tragedy is part of a much larger conspiracy. Soon, all clues point him back to New Orleans...where Holland waits, protecting her deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she's ever loved. 

Once reunited, they can't fight the passion flaring hot and wild. But something sinister lurks around every corner, from the elegance of the Garden district to the beauty of the bayou. Dax and Holland may find their way back to each other - if they survive....

Just Keeps Getting Better

The saga of the Perfect Gentlemen gets better with each story. However, now I'm impatiently waiting for Roman's story. The on going mystery is awesome, the suspense is well timed, as well as the LOL humor. Of course, the erotic scenes more than live up to the highly enjoyable standards of Blake and Black. Kaleo Griffith does a great job making the characters even more vivid. Hope you enjoy these as much as we have.

This series is soooooooo GOOD

I’ve enjoyed every book in this series thus far. I like how the women are not too ridiculous and the alpha males are SIZZLING HOT. Yes, the males are stupid but their actions are pure and driven by lust, desire then love. Kale Griffith is absolutely AMAZING. I’m enjoying his sensual voice, it was a good choice to have him narrate this series. It’s worth every CREDIT!!!👍👍👍

I loved this one..

Well, after reading so many reviews regarding this books "split" of past and present, I wasn't sure how I'd feel, but I enjoyed this one.

Dax and Holland have a complicated background and it was important to see how they e come full circle. As we go through the intrigue and follow the clues of the biggest conspiracy to rock the Perfect Gentlemen, we needed to know how she fits into the plan.

The romance of the story is typical...girl meets boy, doesn't want to be involved, but can't fight the attraction. Girl and boy finally get together , but then she's forced to lie to him to protect him. Boy gets upset and makes stupid mistakes trying to forget her, but it doesn't work. Finally circumstances present themselves that push boy and girl back together again, so everything can be revealed. The only interesting thing is that Dax has loved Holland for almost 10 years..he has stalked, waited, and been persistent until he finally got her.

Now, the Perfect Gentlemen are still putting pieces together to find out how MADD died..each book answers some clues then gives us others. While we solved Dax's dads murder..it I as opened a new can of worms. The best part of the book was the introduction of Gus (Augustine), Dax's sister..she is hilarious and she is going to give Roman a run for his starchy slacks money. Can't wait for the ne t installment..

Brilliant!!!

One of the best in the "Perfect Gentleman" series yet. I love the raw passion of Dax and how through the years his undying love for Holland never wains. As with all the books, this has love and lust, espionage and deceit and of course the never-ending devotion and support from the lifelong brotherhood of friends but this story is different since it spans over a decade. Dax is not only a true romantic but is also one hell of a man to say no to... both in and out of bed. Wish that I were as lucky as Holland Kirk!!! Can't wait for the next installment... sounds like Roman had his work cut out for him.....

Disappointing Dax

Big Easy Temptation was a huge disappointment. I thought that Dax might be different from his friend Connor, the wife beater and supreme asshole. Unfortunately, Dax was just another arrogant alpha male that needed to control his sexual partners because he was intimidated by strong, confident females.

Holland was introduced as an intelligent Naval officer, who was trained to protect herself and others, It's sad that the authors decided that this strong, confident women couldn't also be sexy and passionate, and sadly turned Holland into a boring & easy conquest. It's depressing when female writers have such a low opinion of their own gender.

I don't know if Dax if also became violent toward Holland, since I lost interest after their first creepy encounter. The mystery regarding Dax's father could have been engrossing, and somehow not surprising that his father was a cheating, self-centered jerk. I did like Dax's sassy sister and wished that Holland had some of her spunk. I didn't finish due to boredom.

Not for me

I've never read anything by these 2 authors that I haven't liked. I didn't care for this one. spoiler alert

Half way through something happens that causes the Dax to leave Holland and marry her best friend. That ruined the rest of the book for me.

A Perfect Listen for the Perfect Gentlemen

Would you listen to Big Easy Temptation again? Why?

Yes, I have already done so. The story is interesting and the characters are engaging.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Big Easy Temptation?

I think the scene between Holland and Dax when she has to convince him to give up the investigation by pretending to have accepted money.

Which character – as performed by Kaleo Griffith – was your favourite?

I liked Freddy the conspiracy theory nut case, he is engaging and quite funny. I also liked Dax's mother who was quite a character but my favourite was probably Gus the sister with heart and attitude.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Things are definitely not what they seem

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book as with all the books in this series and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
