❤❤ BIG EASY TEMPTATION by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake 4 star review ❤❤ @BerkleyRomance @SignetEclipse

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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...

Well isn't this just filled with twists and turns. So our good old Naval captain gets his shot at love. Snd one, might I add, he almost didn't get at all.

This love story is full of a lot, a lot, of hurt and betrayal... from both Dax and Holland. But it's also full of a lot of sweet too. The way this story is written is interesting. We're in present day, then it's almost as if someone hit rewind and we go to the past .. everything plays out, hearts bleed red, and the story unfolds to current day. I loved how that was done.

I also really liked the twists and turns the authors threw in this book. We have a lot of very unexpected twists and I'm dying to know the truth behind the conspiracy. I'm also dying to know if all our Perfect Gentlemen will get a HEA or not. I mean they have to, right? LB and SB won't dole out anymore heartbreak, will they?

I loved the story of Dax and Holland , even if my heart broke a little. But LB and SB did a great job of keeping me on the edge of my seat with all the angst from the emotional drama and the suspense of the truths being unveiled. It seems like every time something is unveiled, we have fifty more questions. I really hope we get them all answered.

I love when it came to Holland And Dax, they were both super strong charaxters who were able to have a softer, vulnerable side when together. Dax doesn't have to save that side just for the PGs , Holland now gets that too.. she has for years. It was a great balance to the characters and how the authors wove all the characters together was perfection.

4 stars for me
