Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Release Date: February 5th
Gentleman Sinner, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas.
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.
Gentleman Sinner brought out mixed feelings in me while reading it. Some parts I liked and some I didn’t. I enjoyed the secondary characters. Izzy’s BFF Jess and Theo’s friend Callum. These two and their interactions with the main characters Izzy and Theo are what made me enjoy Gentleman Sinner. The book started out great for me. I liked Izzy and her working as a nurse. She passionate about her job and it’s her safe haven. Her first meeting with Theo was terrific too. Mysterious and intense.
I’m sad to say that I struggled a lot with Izzy and Theo. Their relationship needed more development or a build up. His pursuit of her and them being intimate was just too fast for me. I needed more story to establish a connection between them and sadly I never got that. For me their relationship was just sexual. I didn’t believe in them as a couple.
The tone of this book is at times dark because of Izzy and Theo’s past but thankfully Jess brought out the fun side of Izzy and also her bantering with Callum was great. The epilogue tied it all together and I saw a new and wonderful side of Theo. Despite the mixed emotions I overall enjoyed Gentleman Sinner and I hope I get my wish and get a book with Jess and Callum. That would be awesome.

My love for her holds me prisoner
Her faith leaves me in awe
Her hope encourages mine
And her touch reaches my soul
She is my peace

But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of romance.
She was soon signed by Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, and the third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time. With so much love and enthusiasm for her words, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore and has since let it run riot. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion—a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.
Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her real-life man, her boys, and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for alpha males. Her work is now published in more than twenty-five languages across the world.
