I have to say that I LOVE it when a favorite author of mine steps outside the box of their normal story to give us something different. And Kendall did that with The Gentleman Mentor. What I loved the most though, was that even though she stepped outside her comfort zone, she still delivered us an AMAZING Kendall Ryan Book!!!!
I am a HUGE Kendall Ryan fan and I love that she gave us something different with The Gentleman Mentor. She tackled a subject that she has never done before, BDSM, and I think she did a fantastic job. You can tell she put the effort into researching this subject. The story and characters felt real and believable. One thing that was refreshing was that even though this book was a BDSM book, it didn’t only circle around that topic. She gave us a wonderful and romantic love story with it. If you aren’t a BDSM fan, don’t fret…this book will not push your boundaries. This is on the mild side of BDSM and the book isn’t overloaded with sex. Kendall knows how to give us a book that is a great mixture of romance, and steamy sex 😉
With every book I read by Kendall, she just solidifies why she is one of my favorite automatic read authors. I will stop what I am reading just to read her new releases!! Her writing style, to me, is flawless and spot on. She always gives us just the right amount of detail to make us feel everything the characters are feeling without weighing the story down. Anytime I pick up a Kendall Ryan book, I know I am in for a great book. One that will bring out many of emotions, but will also leave me happy and with a smile on my face. The Gentleman Mentor is exactly that. I was laughing, smiling, blushing, yelling, but in the end I was smiling 😀 I love that this book is going to be part of a series of standalone books based around the BDSM theme. She gave us a sneak peek of the next book between Reece and Macey and I can’t wait to read their story!!!!
In this book we meet Cameron Hale and Brielle. Breille is a shy and timid woman who has an unrequited crush on her guy BFF Kirby. She has been lusting after him for 5 years and she is sick of him not noticing her. So she answers an ad for a Sexual Mentor. Someone who will open her up emotionally and physically. Teach her all she needs to know to seduce and attract Kirby. This is where Hale comes into the story….He is the Sexual Mentor. He is a broken man because of some tragic things that have happened to him in the past. He has decided to close himself off emotionally and just engage in the physical, hence the Dominant aspect of his life. He has all the control. What neither one of them expected was the emotions they would bring out in each other. I loved watching their story unfold and how they eventually opened themselves up to each other. Kendall even through in some mystery when it came to Hale. Right from the start, when he sees Brielle, we know he is hiding something. She keeps us guessing throughout the book. I had an idea of what it was but wasn’t for sure until she confirmed it in the story.
I could go on and on about this book, but I will just say READ THIS BOOK!!!! You won’t be sorry. If you are a Kendall Ryan fan then you don’t want to miss this book.
“It’s just us tonight,” I whisper, fighting the urge to kiss her mouth.
“Where are the ropes? The whips? The chains?”
“You want ropes?” I ask, my tone hollow. Maybe I can’t give her what she needs after all.
“I don’t understand,” she says softly.
This is too real, too intimate, and she knows it. Her questioning blue eyes see everything. All my motivations are stripped bare; I don’t need to say a word. She was expecting something crazy, but all she’s getting is me. I want to pretend she’s mine for one last night before I have to release her.
I cross the room and stand directly in front of her, pushing my hand inside her coat to place it firmly on her waist and drag her close.
