Seduction in Session (The Perfect Gentlemen #2) by Shayla Black & Lexi Blake ~ #bookreview #romanticsuspense @BerkleyRomance @SignetEclipse
Seduction in Session (The Perfect Gentlemen #2)


The second Perfect Gentlemen novel from the New York Times bestselling authors of the Masters of Ménage series.

Privileged, wealthy, and wild: they are the Perfect Gentlemen of Creighton Academy. But the threat of a scandal has one of them employing his most deceptive—and seductive—talents…

Recruited into the CIA at a young age, Connor Sparks knows how dirty the world can be. Only when he’s with his friends can he find some peace. So when an anonymous journalist threatens one of the Perfect Gentlemen, Connor vows to take down the person behind the computer, by whatever means necessary—even if it means posing as his target’s bodyguard.

Publishing a tabloid revealing Washington’s most subversive scandals has earned Lara Anderson the ire of the political scene—and a slew of death threats. To keep herself from ending up a headline, Lara hires a bodyguard, a man as handsome as he is lethal.

When the bullets start to fly, Lara is surprised to find herself in Connor’s arms. But as they begin to unravel a mystery that just might bring down the White House, Lara is devastated when she discovers Connor’s true identity—and finds herself at the mercy of forces who will stop at nothing to advance their deadly agenda.

My Seduction in Session Review . . . 

This is the second book within The Perfect Gentlemen series.  In Scandal Never Sleeps I liked it but didn't love it as the story didn't completely grab me, but Seduction in Session was a completely different experience.  

This book is part of a series but could be read as a standalone as I didn't remember too much from the first book and I didn't feel lost at all.   In the first book of The Perfect Gentlemen series there were six friends that come back together when one of them gets murdered.  Now still trying to figure out more Connor Sparks goes to D.C. to see what Lara Anderson knows behind her Capital Confessions blog. 

Connor has people at arm's length for a reason but something about Lara gets under his skin quickly making this dark horse soften his ways.  Their chemistry is instant but both are confused about each other motives, especially since they are both trying to solve their own mysteries.  But being so close together causes both of them to let their guard down to explore one another. 

"Not in the same way. I can offer you something. It's always an exchange, princess.  Besides exchanging my body for yours, I'm willing to exchange my affection for yours, though you should know I'm not great at that."

After having Lara, Connor knows he won't let her go, but first he has to find out what the true story is behind her and what she knows. 

Who the hell was she?  Innocent do-gooder taken in by a crazy asshole?  Or a calculating seductress determined to take him down?  Either way, she was his and he would deal.

As Connor and Lara grow closer, their lies keep compiling.  When Lara gets caught first, Connor nearly blows a gasket but isn't surprised when his lies blow up in his face where it comes to Lara.  For her trust and need are everything.  It gutted her to have to lie to Connor but to find out that he basically has been lying about almost everything, it has made her question their relationship or if they really even had one. 

As their personal life is exploding the pieces are starting to come together for these men and their mystery.  They keep getting closer and closer to finding out all the answers.  Now they have more answers to Maddox's death but they also have so much more information that still need answers to.  

"I thought she was a pacifist."
Just watching her gave him a warm feeling.  "She is but she's also a pathological cheerleader." 

Lara and Connor were great together even though they are complete polar opposites.  From the beginning I was hooked and was caught up in the mystery and all that was Lara and Connor.  I liked this book so much more than the first book. And now I can't wait for Dax and Holland's story in Big Easy Temptation.  As well as I'm dying to find out more about Roman and Zack and to find out how this mystery will wrap up.
