Smoke and Sin (The Perfect Gentlemen, #4) by Shayla Black & Lexi Blake

New York Times Best Selling Authors Shayla Black and Lexi Blake invite you back into a world of passion and scandal.


More than a decade ago, Roman Calder had a scorching affair with the sister of one of his best friends. Augustine Spencer drove him so crazy he thought of nothing but her. The only thing they did more often than heat the sheets was fight. Unprepared for the intensity of their relationship, Roman broke things off and concentrated on things that made sense to him: his career and putting his best friend, Zack Hayes, in the White House. 

Gus Spencer is known to Washington insiders as the president’s secret weapon. Gorgeous and brilliant, Gus runs the press pool with the determination of a shark. No one dares to cross her, not when she’s known for having a spine of steel…but long ago one man melted her down. Despite the fact that she’ll never forgive Roman for breaking her heart, now that they work together she can’t get him off her mind. 

When a dangerous investigation leads both Roman and Gus to London, the heat between them becomes unbearable. As they begin to unravel an international conspiracy, they find themselves falling all over again. But when a killer threatens their world, can they fight to stay together or will the sins of their past keep them forever apart?

“Long ago she’d decided that action was better than reaction.”

I must say, this series is blowing my mind. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a copy of the story that focused on Roman and Gus. I knew it was gonna be good, but no way did I expect it to be that good. Smoke and Sin kept me up all night, even when I did go to bed my mind kept playing out all the possibilities. The plot thickens, some secrets stay hidden and others are revealed. Some of the players are identified, and others remain hidden in the dark. Emotions run high and passion even higher.

I’ve had so much fun trying to guess what is gonna happen next in this mind-bending story. I’m exhausted from straining so hard to mentally will the characters to fall in line with my plans. And then something exciting happens and I have to admit the authors have much better ideas and I need to stay on this side of the story. Good advice, but I never follow it, I keep meddling and throwing out unsolicited advice to the characters which they always ignore. But I love them anyway.

Each of the Perfect Gentlemen are different but special in their own way. As each book is released and I get to spend more quality time with them, I fall even harder. “The perfect gentlemen loved to keep their secrets.” But not even they are able to keep Gus off of their trail. I know this was supposed to be Roman’s book because he is the PG, but Gus stole the show as far as I’m concerned. She’s badass and bull-headed. I love her to bits, she’s my hero. Actually, all of the women so far have been pretty amazing, full of sweetness and sass. Able to stand up to their alpha-cavemen. I have to agree with the PG assessment that, “We have a type, guys. They’re all troublemakers.” This is so true and it’s so fun to see what trouble the girls get into. They are so funny. And they have their men so whooped. It’s beautiful. I can’t wait to see who comes next. I know she’s gonna be perfect and fit right in with the other females as they plot and plan.

As I learned previously, Roman and Gus had an explosive relationship during their college years. The had, “incendiary chemistry” and “If they weren’t fighting, they were fucking.” Roman walked away from their passion to pursue his plan to help his best friend, Zack, make it to the White House. Over a decade later, Gus shows up at the White House, and the sparks are still there. Only now they are older and wiser, and they play harder and fight to win. The only difference is the prize they are fighting for. Will they give in, or give up, this time? Will either be left standing when the fire consumes them? When the secrets start coming out, will they work together or against each other? Can they let go of the past and make peace with their pain?

Damn! It was so good that after all their sinning, I’m ready for a smoke. And I don’t smoke. As the authors take us closer and closer to the big finale I’m about to burst with excitement and curiosity. It just keeps getting better and better. I’m so ready for whatever comes next. The line forms here…
