~Synopsis ~

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.

He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. 
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

~ Review ~
 She had me at the cover.....I swear every time I looked at it I saw Gentleman Mine...wishful thinking I am sure after devouring this latest novel from Penelope Ward.  It takes a lot to get me to gasp out loud while reading and to shed a tear but she did both while losing me in Channing and Amber's world for a few hours.

Amber and Channing were childhood friends whose bond deepened with a loss and then gradually grew apart over the years. You know that crush on your friends brother that you just never forget.  When circumstance gives them a chance to reconnect, secrets and feelings come to light that will rock them to the core.

Not going to lie, Channing was super sexy and totally loveable and he cooked ! I mean even Kitty was all wrapped up in him.  Channing seems to appear just when Amber could use her old friend again but being in such close quarters starts to stir things up outside the kitchen. 

Being with Channing gave Amber the ability to heal and be a bit more carefree.  Although they both pretended that what they had was nothing more than their agreement you could totally feel the emotions radiating from the pages.  They had chemistry in spades.  

But as we know all good things must come to an end......but do they?  Ah the infamous plot twist that may leave you a bit angry with your kindle.  But have no fear a little angst, jealousy and distance may be the perfect remedy for love.

Yes you read that rating correct....6 stars....5 stars was just truly not enough.  Go grab your copy of Gentleman Nine and introduce yourself to Channing and Amber. You most definitely won't be sorry. #G9
