From the New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series . . .
They are the Perfect Gentlemen of Creighton Academy: privileged, wealthy, powerful friends with a wild side. But a deadly scandal is about to tear down their seemingly ideal lives...
Maddox Crawford’s sudden death sends Gabriel Bond reeling. Not only is he burying his best friend, he’s cleaning up Mad’s messes, including his troubled company. Grieving and restless, Gabe escapes his worries in the arms of a beautiful stranger. But his mind-blowing one-night stand is about to come back to haunt him...
Mad groomed Everly Parker to be a rising star in the executive world. Now that he’s gone, she’s sure her job will be the next thing she mourns, especially after she ends up accidentally sleeping with her new boss. If only their night together hadn’t been so incendiary—or Gabe like a fantasy come true...
As Gabe and Everly struggle to control the heated tension between them, they discover evidence that Mad’s death was no accident. Now they must bank their smoldering passions to hunt down a murderer—because Mad had secrets that someone was willing to kill for, and Gabe or Everly could be the next target...
Scandal Never Sleeps (The Perfect Gentlemen #1) by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake was AH-MAZING! The perfect combination of suspense, mystery and sexy! All of the things that keep me coming back for more.
Gabriel Bond - Mr. Bond, if you please - and Everly Parker mysteriously meet at a bar following the death of someone special in their lives. Neither realizes the connection between the two. What follows is copious amounts of fabulous sex, a mystery that seems to become more and more complex, The Perfect Gentlemen and superb sex.
I love, love, love this book! A well-written mystery that can't be figured out in the first 100 pages is one of my favorite things to read. Add smokin' hot sex, a couple who have off-the-pages intense chemistry and a couple of additional alpha men. SOLD! I'll take one of each please. Gabe. Dax. Connor. Zach. Roman. ALL MINE :)
~ Review by Heather
Everly Parker is reeling over the death of her boss, Maddox “Mad” Crawford. Fear of the unknown future of her executive position sends Everly to the bar with her co-workers after Mad’s funeral. Upon meeting the hottest man she’s ever seen, Everly gives in to her need to forget and agrees to a one night stand.
Gabriel “Gabe” Bond has had a horrible week. He’s just buried one of his oldest and best friends and now he’s left cleaning up Mad’s messes. Grieving and needing to feel something other than the pain from his loss, Gabe gives in and spends what was supposed to be a one night stand with a gorgeous mystery woman, Eve.
What neither one can predict is that this one night stand is going to come back to haunt them—Gabe is Everly’s new boss and the tension is high. Along with this tension is a level of distrust and secrets that may be deadly if revealed. Secrets that have already killed Mad. Gabe and Everly need to put aside their feelings if they’re to figure out the real secret to Mad’s death.
Oh, I love a great romantic suspense! Especially a hot and dirty one! Scandal Never Sleeps ticks off all the boxes: intrigue, romance, hot and dirty sexy scenes, rich playboys, powerful friends, secrets and lies…did I mention hot and dirty sexy scenes?
I loved the interconnection with all of Gabe’s friends, who date back to the time spent in boarding school at the Creighton Academy. They know each other—their actions and reactions that which only lifelong friendships can foster. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
