5-Stars!! Even though A Gentleman’s Memoir is a novella, it packs an unbelievably big punch!

For those of us who are already fans of Author A.J.Linn and his Donovan Hart, this highly anticipated novella is a very satisfying installment in his Gentleman’s Series. We get the answers to the “what?” and “why?” questions that were left in our minds from the events of A Gentleman’s Affair and A Gentleman’s Secret.

We get an intimate glimpse into the psyche of this charming, sexy BookBoyFriend that we f

AJ Linn takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride once again through this novella style story of Donovan Hart's life. Third in the Gentleman's Series, this novella could actually be read first since it takes us back about six years in Donavan's life. The doors are now open to help the reader understand a portion of the life and journey of Donovan Hart. A chance to answer the questions you form in your mind while reading the first two books. Unfortunately, as in any journey there can be pain a ...more

What I love most about A Gentleman’s Memoir is that it is a prequel to A Gentleman’s Affair and A Gentleman’s Secret, and it really gets to the “heart” of Donovan Hart. Psychology is my specialty, and I love to know what makes a person tick, and this novella does just that. In fact, you might want to read it first and then dive into AGA and AGS, if you have not already done so.

This book makes you feel many different emotions; sadness, lust, anger, shock, hatred, happiness, horny…. (Wait, is horn

Our beloved AJ Linn has done it again! In A Gentleman's Affair, we met Donovan Hart and fell in love with him as he searched for THE ONE. In A Gentleman's Secret, our love for him grew even stronger as not only his secrets, but Scarlett's secrets threatened to tear them apart. Both books left us asking questions and begging for answers.

A Gentleman's Memoir, although a novella, answers all of those questions and more. If you've ever wanted to know how The Underground came to be, how Donovan and B

I've been a huge fan of Aj Linn ever since I read his first book A Gentleman's Affair and fell in love with Donovan Hart (sorry christian grey, you have to share the #1 spot with Donovan for favorite sexy book boyfriend). I was super excited when I heard Aj was writing this book. This is the third book in the Gentleman's series that is written as a novella. Most people would think novellas are too short and end way too fast but this book doesn't do that at all.

There are authors that burst onto the scene and fade away just as quickly. There are books - and book series - that skyrocket to the top of the charts, but are soon forgotten as insatiable romance readers wait for "the next big thing". And then there are those that you know will always be a part of you, for any number of reasons. AJ Linn, and The Gentleman's Series, are among the ones that have taken up residence in my heart and soul and will never leave. Like an old friend who appears when you ...more

AJ Linn, you did it again!

I first discovered A.J. Linn last summer when I read his first book A Gentleman's Affair. I immediately fell in love with his writing style. You see, I love to read books written in the male point of view. His writing style is bold, refreshing, humorous, and sexy as hell. And, I met Donovan Hart. Need I say more? Donovan was quickly added to my list of book boyfriends. A couple of months later, A Gentleman's Secret was released and once again, AJ did not disappoint wit

I was so excited when I opened the book for the first time. you can read about Donovan like never before. This is just my humble opinion, but I think book 3 is the best book from the Gentleman's series.
it's like you can see how Alex (the author) grows. Now he is an adult and he has a good kinky way of writing. The book is more than I wished for and more than I could ever expected. I thought book 2 were the limit but Alex pushed his "own style of writing" to another lever.

“Funny thing about losing someone this way, you barely have a chance to believe it… accept it, and then you have a funeral to solidify it all."

My Review:

This is the backstory of a spoiled, carefree and irresponsible young party animal who is doing his best to avoid responsibility, until his mother dies in an accident and his world crashes. He is introduce to a sex club by a friend and becomes obsessed, so much so that he creates his own in the broken down hotel he has inherited.

This is a brilliant novella to see inside Donovan. We get to see his past and how he becomes the way he does....

You'll blush, laugh and cry in this novella... but for certain you will love Donovan more than before!!!

Well done.
