I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
This is a stand-alone novel.

I loved the premise of this book-a one night stand that doesn't stay a one night stand? Of course I want to see how that would play out! I completely understood that these two had reasons for not wanting anything more than one night-and their reasons were completely valid and believable. That just made it all the more interesting to watch them give in to each other.
Skylar and Landon have the passion and heat I've come to expect from Louise Bay's characters. They're smart, they're sexy and they definitely pack a punch when they're together. There were some moments I thought I'd need a fire extinguisher for my kindle...and a fan for myself.
The plot of this book? Not exactly what I expected and I LOVED that. I'm not kidding when I say I was captivated. It moved quickly and flowed so very well. I felt like I was there on the yacht-and I don't like boats-but I could imagine everything perfectly based on this Author's vivid writing.
The Wrong Gentleman is a book that I simply didn't want to put down. I enjoyed the characters, the setting and the plot. The way things played out was incredibly satisfying-and believable. I absolutely enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Skylar and Landon both have expectations of relationships. Or more importantly, they have certain expectations for how to avoid relationships...by never getting into anything that could become one. So, when they have a one night stand, and neither is capable of forgetting the other, which is definitely not in their plans. But, when they end up on the same yacht, well, it becomes impossible to ignore one another, even though they each have reasons to not get involved.
I loved the draw between them, I loved their characters and the way they were betrayed as so drawn to one another they were not able to ignore the other. Especially when you find out the reasons that Skylar has to avoid a relationship...and, you know from the beginning all of the reasons Landon has to avoid it...but that just makes their reactions even more compelling and interesting.
Some of my favorite books are about characters who should not be together, whether the reasons are internal or external. And, in this one, both issues were at play...and, I loved the way it was intertwined but also draws them together.
I loved the story arc of this title, and the way they worked things out at the end was not the way I saw it going, but was also the perfect ending for the story.
I enjoyed this title and I recommend it.
“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”
For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”
“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”
“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.
He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”
