Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m a huge JEM fan and couldn’t sign up fast enough for an arc of this book.
I want to start by saying that I absolutely adored Theo.
He had the possessiveness and trampling tendencies of Jesse Ward, the secrets like Miller Hart, the protectiveness of Jake Sharp and the gentle swooniness that was uniquely Theo.
I also loved how strong, independent and resilient Izzy was after her own secrets of her past.
The 2 together had the chemistry and rightness of the kind of couple we all love to read about.
What kept it from being a 5-star read like most of her books are for me was the lack of a slow-burn romance, the over the top way Theo pursued her and the lack of angst that a few points in the book could have expanded on to make our heart beat faster for them.
I will ALWAYS AUTOMATICALLY buy anything Jodi writes.
Heck, I even buy the audiobooks for “re-reads”, but I don’t think this one will have me re-reading immediately after finishing as I did with her This Man Trilogy.
