Release Blitz: Gentleman Nine by Penelope Ward


Amazon | iBooks | Amazon Paperback | Nook | Kobo | AUDIO Amazon | Audible


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 got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.      

*~*~* 4 Stars *~*~* 

First off, I adore Ms. Ward’s writing, and I have been a huge fan for a very long time. Second, this is a super cute book where you will fall in love with both Channing and Amber.

I’m going to try and write this as best as possible without spoilers. There was a pack made years ago between two guys who were both falling for the same girl, but then it was broken, changing everything. Years later, Amber is now caught in the middle yet again. There were a lot of lies told and things that were hidden from her. Rory broke her heart, but now Channing is there to put the pieces back together.

When I first read this blurb, I was super excited to read it. I honestly thought there would be more of the Gentleman Nine story in this book, but it didn’t play a very big part. It’s mostly a friends to lovers book with a lot of past and present being shared between the characters. I hated people then loved them, and my heart broke only to be put back together. Overall, I wanted to give this book a solid five, but I felt it was lacking something. I did fall head over heels for Channing though, and Amber is quite lovable herself. These two share a wonderful friendship that only gets better then more you go.
