REVIEW BY ELLE
I was seriously intrigued by this book. This is my first time read Kendall Ryan’s books. I can’t resist BDSM themes and i found the title made me wet but in the end, it didn’t work for me. Brielle wants to explore her sexual experience with contact thedominantgentleman, Hale. She has secretly in love with her friend, Kirby for five years and she doesn’t have confidence for herself. Hale help her with BDSM lifestyle and the experience into submission to turns her into desirable woman.
“Nothing he says shocks me anymore. I’ve grown to love his filthy mouth, and my body lights up like a Christmas tree at his words. Despite my powerful release, I’m wet and hungry for more.”
The relationship between Brielle and Hale seems too rush in the end. I don’t feel the chemistry between them. There is no significant development between the characters. Suddenly, they fell in love each other didn’t make sense for me because he’s being a gentleman. Melted? yes, Love? I don’t think so.
Brielle: “Do you always carry a vibrator around in your suit jacket?”
Hale: “When I’m working with bad little girls who need to be fucked? Yes.”
Overall, the story is beyond too romantic for me. I don’t expect it to be this sweet. I can guess where it will leads because everything seems so safe and sound. There is just a little twist in the end. The dirty talk, bdsm, and sex is like ‘scripted’ without chemistry. I can still recommend The Gentleman Mentor for people who like light BDSM with rainbow and unicorn.
