Publisher's Summary

Fall in love with a mysterious and tortured hero in this number-one New York Times best-selling author's steamy, suspenseful romance about an "irresistible" (Booklist) British alpha and the one woman who may be able to save him - as long as he can protect her from his dark past.

Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she's so carefully built - putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she's been so desperate to avoid. 

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can't help thinking she's been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane's notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he's tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away. 

As Theo's demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

Critic Reviews

"Malpas's sexy love scenes scorch the page, and her sensitive, multilayered hero and heroine will easily capture readers' hearts. A taut plot and a first-rate lineup of supporting characters make this a keeper." (Publishers Weekly)

"A magnetic mutual attraction, a superalpha, and long-buried scars that are healed by love. Theo is irresistible." (Booklist)

Gentleman sinner not soo....😞

I would like to start with that I love this author. I have listened to and read almost all her books. This book was very disappointed to me. Izzy White is 90% of the book and only 10% Theo Kane. Too much of her and not enough of Theo. Over 15 hours and I could barely finished it. I think if they did in half the time to get to the point. To much of saying the same things over and over again. To predictable. Guess the whole story before it ended. Not like the other books where it has you wanting more. For me I just wanted it to end. 😔

A bit boring...

This book started out and grabbed my attention. I haven’t read this author before but decided to give it a try. The plot had real potential, but the middle of the book was very repetitive. We heard over and over how the H was her safe place. It wasn’t until chapter 24 when everything was coming together that it got good again. This could have been told in half the time.

Sadly disappointed

The characters never seemed happy until the very end. Although pleasant to listen to Julie Garthan just sounded too young. Jack George only does the epilogue. It would have been nice to have more from his characters pov.

Theo & Izzy

*****SPOILER ALERT*****

Audible review. Izzy's POV until the epilogue. Standalone. Narrators: Julie Garthan narrates the entire book until the epilogue that is read by Jack George; both did a great job although Julie read Theo as Leo twice. There are quite a few parallels to the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy which is honestly getting old and lost 1 star because of it. Trigger Warnings: beaten/abused prostitute; bondage, spanking; fights; 2 murders; 2 rapes.

Theo Kane is a 31 year old, cobalt blue eyed, tattoed (rosary beads, praying hands, huge cross tattoo that reminded him that he's broken God's rules but God forgives everyone even if they haven't abided by His rules, & a new tattoo that reads "my love for her holds me prisoner, her faith leaves me in awe, her hope encourages mine, & her touch reaches my soul, she is my peace my cure my love"), owner of The Playground (a fight/strip club) & is an informant/vigilante. He killed his abusive father reacting to his unexpected touch and no longer allows anyone to touch him. Izzy White is a 27 year old green eyed nurse, hiding from the man who scarred her stomach & raped her. She's living under an alias that is never revealed. Izzy was 2 years old when her dad died & 17 years old when her mom died after suffering with cancer. She became a stripper to support herself until she had enough money to go to nursing school. One night on the way home from the hospital where she's a nurse she hears a woman crying and stops to help. Theo ends up rescuing her & Penny, his half sister. Things escalate quickly between the two and by the epilogue they are parents of a daughter named Lola, building a new house, she's attending medical school to become a doctor, Theo murdered her rapist, and Theo no longer has an issue with being touched. It never discloses if they are married.


Side characters: Penelope (aka Penny; Theo's half sister; product of his dad's affair; abandoned by her mom when her dad died); Callum (Theo's friend/bodyguard/driver; interested in Jess but nothing ever happens between the two); Jefferson (Theo's butler); Jess (midwife; Izzy's best friend & roommate); Judy (Theo's mom/business partner); Andy (Theo's stepdad; police officer; helps keep Theo out of jail); Stan (Theo's tattoo artist); Bernard (Theo's dad; deceased); Tristan (the man that raped & scarred Izzy; deceased) JP

Terrible male voiceover

I have read this book and i really like it, so I thought I would enjoy the audiobook. The voice she makes for the male role sounds so cringy it’s terrible. I continued to listen and I had to stop when I got to the first adult/sexy scene. I wish they would get a male to voice the male lines even though I know it’s from her perspective.

Perfect.

I read the book and fell in love with the characters and the story. I wanted to listen to the audiobook, I wasn’t disappointed, the British accents(fans face). Theo Cane is one of my favorite book boyfriends. I love a hero that’s strong but has some flaws, it makes him more real to me. Izzy is strong and brave, I admire her courage and her ability to help people. I love everything this author writes.

Gentleman Sinner

As always Jodi has done an excellent job with this book. I love how she gets she gets forward with Theo and Izzy with their chemistry as well as showing the heroine sassy determination in standing up to Theo.
