Gentleman Sinner, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas.
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.
If there’s one thing that I know I can always count on in a romance by Jodi Ellen Malpas, it’s that she will deliver one heck of a story. Known for her hardened alpha males and their strong-willed heroines who blow their minds, her writing just gets me every single time. Well, wait until you meet Theo Kane! From beginning to end, Gentleman Sinner proved completely captivating, and good lawdy, the passion between Theo and Izzy melted my kindle along with my heart!
Theo was huge, intimidating, brash, and all kinds of alpha goodness! He definitely had his demons, but he also had some pretty great reasons for them. Since I was unfamiliar with the social issues that Theo faced, I thought it was very interesting and really felt for his character’s struggle in dealing with them and those around him.
‘Theo Kane is like marshmallow coated with steel…I don’t tremble in my boots or shake with dread in his presence. Instead, I quiver with want and vibrate with need.’
Like Izzy, I was irritated with Theo’s demanding ways, but I loved how she stood her ground with him and eventually brought out the incredibly sweet man underneath. She was the perfect balance of sweet and strong, and although Izzy had her own complicated past, she was fierce in not letting it or anyone else define who she was.
‘The man has me dancing on the edge of frustration and complete heaven.’
Theo and Izzy were both so bull-headed and stubborn, so it took a lot of push and pull for them to understand and respect each other’s boundaries. Their passion was intense, their sexy times sizzled, and they shared an unconditional love that gave me all the feels. And that epilogue was so incredibly sweet!
‘Like I’ve already told you,’ he says quietly, ‘you had me the moment I touched you.’
Jodi Ellen Malpas did a fantastic job of crafting this unique, complex, and suspenseful plot. Her descriptive writing really pulled at my emotions throughout with just the right touch of wit to balance out the angst. There was so much depth to both the characters and the story, and although I was a bit surprised at how smoothly and somewhat quickly it wrapped up in the end, I just gobbled every bit of it up. The secondary characters in the story were a delight as well, and I’m hoping that Malpas was setting the stage for Jess and Callum to get a story of their own next – fingers crossed!
Gentleman Sinner was such a unique and exciting read, and I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a steamy romance and a new alpha to adore!

My love for her holds me prisoner
Her faith leaves me in awe
Her hope encourages mine
And her touch reaches my soul
She is my peace
