    Landon is so HOT! He’s sexy, confident and don’t get me started on his British accent. I really liked Skylar and how focused and determined she was. The chemistry and sexual tension was off the charts too! They are both so perfect for each other.

    I really like Louise Bay’s writing and I know I am always going to have a good time when reading her books, and this one wasn’t an exception. Highly recommend this book if you are looking for a sexy, low angst contemporary romance.

    Landon and Skylar were amazing. This couple captured me from the get go and I was invested from their very first meet. I couldn’t go back now, oh no.

    Landon keeps himself to himself, he’s a private guy. After selling his company he’s looking for some time away to just sit and relax like he very much deserves but all that is about
    Sissy's Romance Book Review
    The Wrong Gentleman by Louise Bay is the story of Skylar Anderson and Landon Wolf.
    Landon is ex military who is now working on building his business and has not time for a committed relationship...nor does he want one. Skylar is working to stay focused on her career and not looking back to her terrible past life. Not trusting of most men due to her past, she doesn't focus on relationships.

    Louise Bay has created a beautiful and majestic escape for us in The Wrong Gentleman. This story is like an exotic adventure. It has thrill and mystery. It has heartbreak and second chance. It has emotion and passion. I loved the rocking journey of Landon and Skylar.

    This story has so many elements and layers. The author tied all the loose ends with perfection. Skylar is an efficient chief stewardess who has put her heart under lock and key as life has been unfair to her. Her only aim is to have

    This book had everything I love in a romance. Louise always delivers... a sexy, broody man, who's also possessive in all the right ways and a woman who needs exactly that. I fell in love with both characters and couldn't put this book down once I started it. It squeezed my heart and had my pulse racing as these two complicated characters found love when they least expected it. 5 deliciously sexy stars.

    As always Louise, a brilliant read!! Landon is a gorgeous, sexy and broody man, he’s also possessive in all the right ways and skylar is a woman who needs just that. Skylar gives off the wrong impression at first, but this is a protective mechanism—she just trying to protect herself from being hurt and her heart from being broken. I loved this from start to finish as always! Highly recommend reading ❤ ...more

    This book quickly became a favorite within the first few chapters of this read. Louise always gives us a story that draws us in and rings out emotions page after page. Landon was sexy, broody and secretive but it comes with the job and that job definitely wasn't supposed to be the gorgeous blonde who caught his eye. Skyler is the gorgeous, passionate hardworking woman that caught the attention of the one man she shouldn't want but can't stop thinking about no matter how hard she tries. The chemi ...more

    Oh Landon ticked all my boxes. I loved the 'Summery' feel of this book and Louise Bay wrote so amazingly that I could picture myself on-board with Skylar and Landon.

    After the extremely lucrative sale of his security business, Landon Wolf finds himself with some much needed time off... which lasts all of about half of a day. Tapped to provide surveillance on a luxury yacht, he agrees to go undercover for the season. With his next few months working stretched out before him, Landon sets his sights on a gorgeous blonde for his last night on land...

    Romance with a soul. I think this is my favourite kind of romantic read, and LB has created characters who not only entertain but reach out to parts inside you and tug, connect.

    It came as a fantastic surprise when this author took me back to the sea world where yatchs reign and rich people are catered to their every whim. It made an impresion on me in one of her previous novels as that hard-working and sophisticated world was exposed so well.

    This time, the circumstances go up a level or two. Co

    Let me start by saying I love the characters, the plot and the outline of the story was very much a winner in my book. But I don't know what happened. Whether it was my frame of mind or not but this book just fell a little flat for me. Now Louise Bay is one of my favourite instant one click authors and I hate that I have this opinion.

    The characters are great and I loved Landon he had all his brothers charm but with a burly army way about him. His need to protected was what drew me to h

    Another solid read from one of my favourite authors.

    "I barely knew this woman and already I wanted to understand her better - know her. Body and mind."

    Landon Wolf is on a break before he starts his new job. However, when an old associate approaches him about an undercover job aboard a yacht, he finds himself unable to decline it. When he finds himself face to face with the hot blonde from the night before on board, his job may not be as easy as he first thought.

    With the Wrong Gentleman, Ms Bay gives us a sweet, gentle, slow burn of a romance. However, I’m sad to say this was a little too much of a slow burn for my personal taste. It’s beautifully written as always, and the main characters were appealing but I would have liked to have seen more depth and a little more passion from them on an emotional level, in order to feel that their connection was anything other than a physical one.

    There was a suspenseful element to the story but again, but

    Louise Bay you have done it again. I fell for both Landon and Skylar , there was just something about this couple that drew me to them and their story; not to mention the secondary characters have me intrigued.

    The story was well written, engaging and it was great to see the growth of both the main characters as the book evolved. There is just so much to love about Ms. Bay’s stories, the characters, the depth and layers that she weaves keep me rivet

    This book was such a GREAT read! I really love Louise Bay’s writing, I was instantly captured in Landon and Skylar’s story. Their chemistry was off the charts and I really enjoyed the brooding, protective character of Landon. Skylar has been through some tough things in her life, she’s closed off and that with reason, because life has seriously given her some sour lemons. I loved the development of their relationship. The way both characters slowly open up to one another felt so genuine and hear ...more

    The Wrong Gentleman by Louise Bay was my first book by this author and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Her writing was beautiful and the book flowed nicely.

    I loved Landon, his character was broody and sexy but also caring and loyal. He was a totally swoon worthy Alpha. Skylar was a strong heroine which I loved. She didn’t let anyone deter her from her choices and this made her a very likeable character instantly.

    This book ticked all my romance boxes I just love it when a book delivers. Landon was that perfect mix of broody sexy alpha with a huge possessive side. Skylar is the epitome of independent woman, I'll admit it took me awhile to take to her but I grew to really like her. The story was well written with engaging characters and easily merged the romance with mystery and danger.

    Landon is definitely the top Wolf brother! He is broody yes, secretive of course, but he’s also, considerate, passionate, caring and when he opens up he has a love inside of him that runs deep! Of course it takes a strong willed, stubborn woman to being out the softer side of him and boy oh boy Skylar is anything but the norm for this play boy and she definitely makes him work for her respect! Through that mutable admiration a friendship forms and that leads to some very steamy moments that have ...more

    Love was bullshit. Something people made up to sell greeting cards and wedding venues. I wasn’t interested. I liked certainty, and I could provide that for myself.

    I’ve just finished The Wrong Gentleman and OMG! This book was OUTSTANDING. Straight up sexy and entertaining from start to finish--and I couldn’t slap a five-star review on this one quicker!

    It was as if Skylar was really two people— the one she showed and the one she hid—and I wanted to uncover both.

    It might be the wrong gentleman, but oh it feels so right!

    When I met Skylar on The Ruthless Gentleman, I didn't know exactly what to think of her. Her speech of "I need to find a rich man to marry" didn't charm me, but I had no idea it was only a facade.

    After such a sad and traumatic background, she's sworn off men for good and decided to never need anyone else in her life. She was the captain of her life.
