The New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series present the third scintillating novel featuring the privileged, wealthy, wild men of Creighton Academy—the Perfect Gentlemen.
Years ago, Naval officer Dax Spencer and NCIS agent Holland Kirk indulged in a steamy affair—until she betrayed him in the wake of his father’s death. Dax tried to put her behind him with a payback of his own. But he never forgot Holland…
Now, as Dax and his fellow Perfect Gentlemen unravel a web of lies, he discovers his family’s tragedy is part of a much larger conspiracy. Soon, all clues point him back to New Orleans…where Holland waits, protecting her deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she’s ever loved.
Once reunited, they can’t fight the passion flaring hot and wild. But something sinister lurks around every corner, from the elegance of the Garden district to the beauty of the bayou. Dax and Holland may find their way back to each other—if they survive…

~ 4 Second Chance Stars ~
Big Easy Temptation is the third book in the Perfect Gentleman Series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. These books are interconnected standalones. Each book is about a new couple but the storyline is a continuing story. I don’t believe these books could be read out of order. I truly believe you would be very confused and lost if this series isn’t started with the first book (Scandal Never Sleeps).
As with the previous books, I can’t talk too much about the mystery storyline. Anything I say pertaining to the continuing plot would be a spoiler. I will say this….this book does answer some of the questions that the other books raise. Things start to make sense after reading this book. NO the mystery isn’t completely solved in this book, but one aspect was. You will be left with more questions after reading this book, that I am sure will be answered in the next book. As with the other books, the authors set up the next book nicely in the last chapter. I think Roman’s book will be an interesting one. I feel a lot of angst coming!!!
Besides this book being an amazing romantic suspense story, this third book is actually also a second chance romance between Holland and Dax. This book is broken into 2 parts. Part 1 is Dax and Holland in the past and their relationship. Part 2 is told in the present time and takes off exactly where the second book ended. I will say that my only real complaint with this book was, I felt that it focused too much on the past between Holland and Dax. I didn’t think half of the book needed to be taken up to explain everything. To me it took away from the mystery of the story and kind of slowed the pace down too much. With that said I still enjoyed this book, but just not as much as the first book in the series.
The mystery line of the plot is my favorite part of this series. These authors have me on the edge of my seat, just waiting to see how this will all work out in the end. I want all the answers to my questions!!!! The love story of each of the books is also good, but it wouldn’t upset me if it wasn’t as big of a part as the suspense aspect.
These authors do know how to create a steamy book though. The sex scenes in this book and the others are off the charts. I also love that they didn’t overload the book with sex. These books are a great mix of romance, mystery, suspense and sex. Their writing styles mesh so well everything is just seamless!!
Again if you are a fan of the romantic suspense type love story, or just someone looking for something new and different to read, then I would definitely recommend this book/ series. This is also a great book for anyone who is a fan of the second chance romance. But don’t forget….READ these books in order!!! If you love a storyline with a lot of twists and turns, then this is a series you don’t want to miss. You won’t see anything coming….these authors will keep you guessing 😉
