It was so funny that he'd come to New Orleans thinking that he could get back at her. Now he only wanted to get her back.
The perfect gentleman return in this sexy second chance romance and what a twisty ride it was! With the third installment of this thrilling series, more mysteries are being unveiled but with every question we get an answer to, it only forms countless more.

Big Easy Temptation is the third in The Perfect Gentlemen series, and it seems I’m a little more invested with each book! Shayla Black and Lexi Blake have created an addictive and intense series, and I just loved this installment! This is very much a second chance romance, one of my favorite kinds. The first half takes up back to the past where Dax and Holland fall hopelessly for each other. Their love is not the kind a person finds twice. Holland is the one for Dax, has been since th ...more
Big Easy Temptation is a standalone and is part of The Perfect Gentlemen series. I’ve been reading this series from the beginning, each book builds upon each other, so if you haven’t started this series I would suggest you start with the first one, but you do not have to read the prior books.
This is Dax and Holland’s story.
Out of all the books in the series, Big Easy Temptation was written a little different. The book is structured in two parts and the first half of the bo ...more
Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.
Aaaaaaaaahhhh Dax! Gimme gimme! Big Easy Temptation... one hella sexy and intense read. Steamy and suspenseful. Plus a second chance romance? Gah! Yes, please! Blake and Black know how to write one seriously pulse pounding, can't-put-it-down romance. Loved it!
So the gist of it is that Dax and his friends have found themselves smack in the middle of a conspiracy and new info has him questioning an old family scandal that led to his father's suicide ye ...more

The Perfect Gentlemen have turned me into a heroine hater. With each successive book, I think I have found my favorite member of the group... but that's a lie. I want them all. I'm being a selfish catty bitchface because no female heroine is going to be good enough for one of these men... unless she is me, of course. First we had Gabriel Bond, the corporate mogul. Then came Conner Sparks, secret agggeent m ...more
If you're looking for romantic suspense with a good dose of spice, then The Perfect Gentleman Series may just be exactly what you're looking for. Though this was my first experience with this series, I had no trouble following the underlying suspense arc which does unfold over multiple books due to the attention with which Shayla Black and Lexi Ryan take to explain what had previously occurred; and the romance is fully contained in this ...more

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of Big Easy Temptation in advance for an honest review.
I have loved this series so much but let me say that Big Easy Temptation is my favorite in the series so far! I thought that I was torn between Connor and Dax but not after reading this book. This couple by far has had the best chemistry and story-line for me. The ...more
So, what happened?
The book was good, in a slowly kind of way, because it was not until the last 50% that it really picked up for me, so I got a little bored, and it frustrated the hell out of me because I LOVE these men, and I really was expecting more from Dax :(.
I missed the witty banter the authors have got me used to between the main characters, also, the lack of mystery and conspiracy that make this series so interesting for me, was a little disappointing. I just got a glimpse of ...more

Big Easy Temptation is the third book in the Perfect Gentleman Series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. These books are interconnected standalones. 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 firs ...more
Holland is protecting a deadly secret and holding a torch for the only man she’s ever loved and the readers can’t help but get caught up in this powerful and gripping tale as the passion flares hot and wild between Dax and Holland once again. With ...more
This book sounds like I would love it! It's an NCIS agent and a Navy Captain, and they've known each other for years, but now with his father's apparent suicide and the scandal that led up to it, they're back in touch. Seriously, I've been wanting an NCIS type romance forever! And that's why I'm so bummed this isn't working for me. I did finish it, but by about 50% in, I started skimming. I can't put my finger on why I don't love it. It's just...okay I guess. I ...more
Well, the deeper I get into The Perfect Gentlemen, the less perfect they are, and the more I love them. Big Easy Temptation is the 3rd installment in this amazing series and it focuses on Dax. He's the #MilitaryMan who comes from money, and a father who's an Admiral in the Navy. He has big shoes to fill. But he enjoys the time with his pack at Creighton Academy before he begins his Naval career. The six PG's have kind of paired up, and ...more

All in all, it was an okay read. Nothing really surprised me since, plot-wise, this one is similar to the previous one about Connor and... the woman of that book (whatever her name was). I liked Holland, though Dax was a little shit sometimes; my main problem was how fast Holland forgave him. He really screwed up, big time, and said ...more
Honestly, I'm really glad I waited to read it because I was able to read this book and Smoke and Sin (#4) sequentially, which now has me waiting on the edge of my seat-completely biting my nails to find out the mystery in the final book, At the Pleasure of the President, which is releasing soon!!
These ladies know how to write a fantastic series arc and steamy love story which has only built to its pinnacle. I'm s ...more
Big Easy Temptation is the third book in The Perfect Gentlemen series written by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake. Just when I thought this writing duo had successfully perfected the art of collaboration, I read BET and realize the best was yet to come. WOW! It was all so electric - the action, the mystery, the secrecy, the emotions, the jaw-dropping twists, and the tension and chemistry between the characters. It stands to reason this second-cha ...more

The intrigue in this series always keeps me interested and this book seemed like it could've moved things along quite nicely. Instead, it was more of a tease. BIG EASY TEMPTATION features Dax Spencer and his one and only love, NCIS agent Holland Kirk. He's been in love with her as long as he can remember but he's also been badly betrayed by her. Or so he thought.
This book goes back and forth in time just a bit to give us a good glimpse of what that betrayal was and how it affects their relation
Dax heads back to his home turf of New Orleans when the mystery unfolded enough to reveal his father's death may be tied into the big conspiracy the Perfect Gentlemen have been dealing with. Dax intends to finally get to the bottom of how his father died and unravel what actually happened in his fathers last few months.
Also waiting for Dax in New Orleans is Holland, the on ...more
I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed so well I could not tell when the authors switching in the story. The story has laughs, suspense, murder, twists & turns, betrayal, and heartbreak.
