I am a ruthless bastard, but if you let me, I'll be your ruthless bastard."

I'm a huge fan of Shayla Black and Lexi Blake individually, but when these two combine their talents into a series? Fire. Works. This just may be my favorite series by them yet. And having read their entire backlists individually and combined, that's no light statement. Espionage, action, suspense, and a romance so hot it burns up the pages, all woven intricately together to make up one incredible page-turner!

Opposites attract with fiery hot chemistry in this installment of The Perfect Gentlemen series, and I devoured this addictive story! Lara was the sweet, “fairy princess” with a pure heart, and Connor was the gruff, protective, alpha male.

4 Connor oh my stars

Seduction in Session is a standalone and is part of The Perfect Gentlemen series. The thing that I really like about this series is that each Hero in the series is completely different. I also like that all the Heroes are friends and all of them are in the each story.

Six guys went to the same prep school together, Gabe, Dax, Connor, Zach, Roman and Maddox (Mad). This is Connor’s story.

Connor to me is the “good guy”. He was recruited in the CIA and now he guards. He’s strong,

Woo! Seduction in Session. Loved it. Even if they made me want to shake em about about it was a wonderful romance tinged with danger and full of delicious heat. Blake & Black are a dangerous duo when it comes to raising heart rates and droppin' panties. lol Their heroes are delicious!

Okay the quick of it is that one of Connor's best friends was killed in an accident he's sure was suspicious and the rest of their group of friends is trying to figur

I'm not going to lie and say that I expect a lot from these guilty pleasure books...but I still expect something good! I loved how the first book mixed a Mystery/Thriller story into the Romance, and especially how it's ongoing through the series, with each book essentially adding to the puzzle. However the two leads in this book were awful. From the backstory you expect Lara to be a smart, educated, and somewhat worldly woman given what she is up to and who her father is. But no, she goes beyond ...more

I love Lexi Blake. There, I said it. Her writing is great and I love 99% of her characters and her plots are interesting.
This book centers around Connor, CIA agent extraordinaire, and Lara, frigging naïve chick. Connor wants to find out what Lara has against his friends and if she knows anything about Mad’s death(from book 1). The best way to find that out is to infiltrate her life. He poses as a bodyguard that Lara’s cyber friend recommends and then, like 5 minutes after they meat, he saves he

Connor Sparks knows how dirty the world can be and the only time he can find peace is with his friends, so when they are threatened, he vows do take them down by whatever means necessary even posing as his target’s bodyguard in this thrilling romantic suspense.

Lara Anderson’s political tabloid has earned her a slew of death threats and the reader can’t help but become engaged by the story as Lara hires Connor as her bodyguard and sparks and bullets start to fly. The chemistry between Co
These two NEVER quit! Book after book they continue to bring their A-GAME! I just LOVED every single thing about this installment of the INCREDIBLY ENTICING and heavily addictive Perfect Gentlemen series! After finishing up book 1 of the series, I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on Connor's book. These ladies create some pretty fantastic alpha males, but I think it's safe to say, Connor is definitely at the top of my favorite hero list.

Seduction in Session is the second book in their Perfect Gentlemen series by this duo author series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. After reading the first book, I was super stoked to read Seduction in Session. What I like about these books is that one you NEED to read this series in order, and seeing this mystery and political intrigue over the whole series, so in each book we are given more clues to the mystery behind everything.

I enjoy Shayla Black,never read Lexi Blake,but these two authors together made for some good reading.At first , this heroine really,really got on my last nerve,but as I read futher,yeah,she grew on me.This hero,my,my,my,my!! let's just say,he can guard me anytime and leave it at that!
Loking forward to the next in the series....
I felt like a lot of this one was predictable with the romance between Connor and Lara. I liked them together, thought they brought out the best in each other and will keep each other grounded.

What kept me reading was the larger story arc with the "Perfect Gentlemen". I liked how the guys interacted, loved that they had a long history, loved that they all are so different in what they choose to do with their lives, yet time and time again they proved they had each others back.

The Perfect Gentlemen are back and we continue our exhilarating ride through D.C. politics and more!

Connor Sparks has always lived in the dark, that’s his job. After Maddox Crawford died, he’s on hiatus from work and has a temporary assignment—guard Lara Armstrong, a journalist, and find out what she knows. If only it could be that easy. Lara was a job, nothing more. But once Connor got to know Lara and her pixie Princess ways, his life was turned upside down.

Seduction in Session is the second book in the Perfect Gentleman Series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. These books are interconnected Stand alones. 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 Slee

Oh, I wish I had so much time to hang out and chat, and fly around the country as do all these billionaires, millionaires, naval personnel and even, gasp!, POTUS!
This is a pet peeve of mine not limited to this book but to any book that portrays people who run businesses and countries as having a lot of free time. Of course, the reality would make for a less interesting book than say the lif

And they did it again!!!!! LOVEEEEEED Seduction in Session.

I can say that this enticing and addictive series is going to be the death of me! I could not put the book down. Again, I was hooked since the very first page, I could not stop wondering who could be behind it all. I got some answers, but there are still a lot of secrets and I just want to know what is going on *pouts*.

Connor and Lara did not disappoint, their book was everything I was waiting for. Loved Connor since I met him in SNS, b

Cliffhanger: No on the romance. Yes on the general series arc.
Ending: HFN

I've been excited for Connor's book since the first installment. There's just something about mysterious, troubled men that make them so attractive as fictional heroes. Especially one like Connor, who came from nothing, had no luck when it came to family, and relied only on his skills as a CIA operative, never letting people in, except his five friends. I couldn't jump into this book soon enough. As it is,

I like the perfect the gentlemen, who aren’t always gentlemanly and definitely not perfect. I like their bond. (But I don’t adore them like I do the McKay-Taggart men)

Seduction in Session is the second book in the highly addictive romantic suspense series by Lexi Blake and Shayla Black and is a must read for suspense fans. All the players, ironically named the Perfect Gentleman, intrigued me in the first book, but Connor had a slight edge over the rest. He has a good bit of mystery surrounding him and I really wanted to know his back story, and our dynamic writing duo did not disappoint. Not only did we l

This is Connor's story, the most mysterious of the group of six friends. Now if you haven't read the first book in the series, Scandal Never Sleeps, then I'd advise you not to continue reading this review, it may contain some tiny spoilers, nothing drastic to the main plot but as this is a series there is a long running storyline throughout so I wouldn't advise the books to be read as standalones. To appreciate the full story I'd say you certainly need to start with book one. 
Now that warning is
DNF 25% completed - I hated the characters in this book. Conner is an compulsive liar and just an arsehole. I think there is a fine line between alpha and arsehole and this character was way over that line. He'd also told so many lies that if he ever came clean and Lara forgave him, I'd hate her for being such a weak push over.

Seduction in Session has delivered in more ways than I ever imagine and after reading Scandal Never Sleeps (Book 1) I wasn't quite sure where Seduction would take me.

Seduction in Session is book 2 of The Perfect Gentleman series and revolves around Connor & Lara. We get a deeper connection of the complex person of Connor as well as glimpses of his background to help understand how Connor has become the suspenseful, dark and alluring man he's become.

I received an ARC of this book from IinkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's release promotions.

Seriously, I don't know if anyone should expect less when a book is written by two amazing authors in the erotic romantic suspense genre. I mean, individually, Lexi Blake and Shayla Black have both established their own popular books that I myself love and enjoy re-reading every now and then. But when you put them together, well, there's pretty much nothing left to say

Not bad! Not great either, but I liked is well enough. The story line is what really has me. I'm very much intrigued with the "who done it" and what's going on behind the scenes. The love story was a bit much for me. I'm kind of over the whole "Alpha Male" thing. I know, I know, but like I said, I'm very much into the plot line and the whole Mafia thing.

Where do I sign up for one of those? Connor is the ultimate bossy bodyguard with a body that I'd love to guard. Please? Actually, all of The Perfect Gentlemen are swoonworthy. Seduction in Session is the 2nd book in the series, and I've learned that they are not standalones. There is so much good stuff in each that if you blink, you might miss a clue, or a secret revelation. All of the six brothers-by-choice are involved in each of the stories, even the l

The second book in The Perfect Gentleman series is a complete couple romance (as was the first book) but with a continuing story arc that appears will run through the whole series. It's about 6 men, school friends who have remained close for many years even as they've gone their separate ways into politics and business and national security. Only, at the start of the first book one of their number, Maddox is dead, and the hunt for the murderer is on. It's an intricate plot with lots of players, ...more
