Description

Fall in love with a mysterious and tortured hero in this #1 New York Times bestselling 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.

Named to RetailMeNot's "List of the 23 Must-Read Books of 2019"! Named one of the "Most Popular Books Published in February 2019" by Goodreads!

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.

    Move over Jesse Ward cause Theo Kane is coming to town! I am in love with how this couple began. Izzy is a nurse who stumbles upon a beaten woman on her way home from the hospital, only the perpetrator has not left yet. In comes Theo to save the day and boy did he make an impression. There is a lot of mystery about both Izzy and Theo's past that you know was very bad for both of them. What I loved was how Izzy seemed to be the only person that Theo could stand touching him. He avoided all physical contact except from her. When he realized how strong of a connection he has to her, he knew he would never let her go. If you are a fan of the alpha types who take what they want, then you are going to love Theo. Izzy is hesitant due to her past and Theo just bulldozes right through. He pretty much stalks her in the very beginning. His care for her is very sweet though. He knows how precious she is and just wants her safe. You don't know Theo or Izzy's full story through most of the book. You just know it's not good. There is a lot for both of them to overcome but what I loved was that it was never an interference form other men or women that stood in their way. The conflicts in this book were all due to their personal demons they were fighting. This is a standalone book and has the sweetest epilogue. The author did leave things open to possible explore two of the side characters. I'm really hoping that is in her plans cause she gives us just enough to have me curious.

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Gentleman Sinner is getting the flames instead of the stars because it just is and this is my review and I’m saying it does!!! Just when I thought Ms. Malpas couldn’t give us a more damaged, HOT, ALPHA hero, she gives us Theo F^cking Kane!! Theo is a man you love right from page one and I did! I was intrigued by him and his past; enter Izzy.....when you have a hero that has a history that is not “good”, you expect the heroine to be the one to save him....but what if the heroine needs saving too? I was blown away by how Ms. Malpas spun Theo and Izzy’s story. The twists and turns that the reader will experience were CRAZY but pure perfection!!! Now, my emotions: I was all over the place! Txting friends with how I was feeling. My anxiety peaked quite a few times.....for me, if I’m not crying then my heart beat better be racing....racing it was!!! Plus, I have added a new man to my BBF harem.....Theo Kane.....holy f^cking hell!

    Intoxicating characters who gripe your heart. Two lost souls who triumph with other. You want to grab some wine, tissues, and pillow because you will need them to deal with the emotions you will feel. One more thing once you start this book you will want to finish
  • Good not great book

    I was a little disappointed in this book. It was good but not up to par with her other books. Theo is a good main character and Izzy is too. The books waits for the last 3 chapters to get into the juicy stuff and then rushes to an end. Thank god there an epilogue or the story would have gotten less stars from me.

    Sucked into the story from the very first page. As soon as you meet Theo and Izzie, you know you want to follow them both down whatever path they lead you down. This path is a dark tunnel that you don't know where it will lead and when it will end, but the only thing you know is that you want to discover more. Theo is a broken man that makes you want to heal him and wrap your arms around him. It is easy to understand why Izzy is drawn to him and hates him at the same time. Theo is just magnetic and even though he has flaws which make you want to smack him, you can't turn away from him and hope he finds his way. Just amazing from start to finish.
  • Loved it! A great read!

    Every time I pick up a Jodi Ellen Malpas book, I know it will be an amazing journey and I have not been disappointed yet! In Gentleman Sinner, we get a story about two broken and lost souls who never imagined finding love, much less their other half. But things are never that easy. I am not sure where to begin. I absolutely loved Izzy White and Theo Kane. Izzy has been living life cautiously for years. Her story is so heartbreaking. Even so she fought hard to make something of herself. Even if letting others in from outside her small circle is very hard for her. So, when she helps a woman in need, she has no idea how much her life is about to change. Though she is vulnerable, she is so strong and determined as well. Theo Kane protects those he cares about and those in his circle. He is so strong, determined and above all else always needs to be in control. He is a man that is feared and revered. Then he meets Izzy and his dark world finally has some light and hope in it. But can he protect her from the danger not only around him, but from himself as well? Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellan Malpas consumed me from start to finish. The characters were captivating and their journey mesmerizing. I devoured this book as quickly as I could. Izzy and Theo shared a strong and unbreakable connection. My heart hurt for them and cheered them on. This story was emotional, heartbreaking, full of angst and a bit of suspense and I loved every minute of it! This is a must-read and one I highly recommend! Read and reviewed for Reviews From The Heart! Happy reading!
