Our Review

‘I’ve never sensed so much danger in my life.
And yet, the most disturbing part is how enthralled I was.’

We always know what we’re going to get when we open a new book by Jodi Ellen Malpas and that is a sizzling hot romance with a dark and mysterious alpha hero who has zero patience and an abundance of arrogance. Oh and add in stalker-ish tendencies. We also pretty much know that the heroine will be a sweetheart, slightly naïve and vulnerable, yet will display an inner strength and personal conviction. The Gentleman Sinner in all its dark and emotional glory gave us all of the above in classic Jodi Ellen Malpas style.

“I need compliance. Total surrender.”

Izzy, a nurse, is on her way home from work when she hears a woman who’s clearly in distress. It only takes a moment of hesitation before her medical professionalism kicks in and Izzy ventures down the dark alley to help. Her brave stunt turns out to be the beginning of a journey she was never expecting. In this alley, she comes face to face with the mysterious man who’ll challenge her very being, as well as her sanity. Izzy has secrets and is in many ways hiding her heart, cloaked in loneliness. She seems so guarded yet immediately lets Theo Kane into her life and heart, a man who should in all honesty scare her away…far far away. This is fiction so we suspend all belief and rationality -to a degree- so it’s all good, Theo Kane intrigued us too! It took us a while longer to fall in love with him though than it did Izzy.

‘I’ve fallen in love with a man who is feared by most but has shown me nothing but utter tenderness since we met.’

So just what is Theo Kane’s story? Well, at first sight he’s an attractive formidable man who displays the usual JEM characteristics of control, domination, a protective instinct and a penchant for stalking. He has a darkness about him and we just knew it had to be something heart-breaking. Not only that, he lives a life of secrecy and he’s hesitant to let Izzy in. A relationship can never truly survive the distance though when based on omission and secrecy so the battle is real to turn this passionate relationship into something real, something like love. So let the battle for insta-love to real love commence!

“I know you’re beautiful. I know you’re attracted to me. I know you make me smile, and I know you give me hope. You’re strong and kind.”

The second half of this book was definitely our favourite as that was when the story really kicked in, and as for the epilogue…sigh. We have to say we’re hoping for Jess and Callum’s story. We were fascinated by these two characters and found the ‘love-hate’ chemistry and intrigue between them palpable. We rejoiced whenever they came into the story. Gentleman Sinner was nothing new really, rather we were reminded of several books we’ve read and loved in the past, however that’s not to say we didn’t enjoy it because we did. However, we’d love for Jodi Ellen Malpas to branch out and challenge herself rather than staying safe -because no question- we know that with her brilliant storytelling she can absolutely do it and has so much more to offer!

“Everything I do is because I am in love with you. Not because I’m a fucking madman. Not because I thrive on violence. It’s because I fucking love you.”


An all-the-feels novel of fierce love overcoming a dark past from the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling THIS MAN series.

Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she’s so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she’s been so desperate to avoid.

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane’s notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he’s tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.

As Theo’s demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.
