“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”
JACOB
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.
HOPE
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

Pepper, Pepper, Pepper....what your words do to me. They leave me curled up in a blubbering heap unable to focus on anything else. No matter how dark or how painful the story-line, you make me root for a happily ever after even though the main character wants to not be loved, is cruel and impatient and cruel (yes I said that twice). Jacob, despite his cruelty to all around him (not necessarily physically but emotionally distant), pulls on your heartstrings and makes you want him to let go, to let others in, to be happy. We just know that he doesn't have that in him that he holds his pain close and nearly revels in it, being proven right over and over again but wanting to be proven wrong with his next breath. Ren and Della have seriously imprinted on this man and because we know their love story (at least I hope you have read The Boy and His Ribbon and The Girl and her Ren before delving into this story) we expect Jacob to embrace all that is love, but he has demons that are nearly impossible to deal with. Hope has her own demons and deals with them in the complete opposite way which Jacob is not equipped to deal with. This story has all the pain that you might expect, but it may also hold all the beauty that you want.

Release Blitz/Review: Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas

GentlemenSinner-SBPRBANNER-RB.jpg

In the tradition of The Protector, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man series delivers a steamy, suspenseful new standalone romance about a British alpha hero and the one woman who may be able to save him-as long as he can protect her from his dark past.
Gentleman Sinner, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas, is live!

Gentleman Sinner cover.jpg

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.

About Jodi:
Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of romance.
She was soon signed by Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, and the third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time. With so much love and enthusiasm for her words, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore and has since let it run riot. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion—a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.
Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her real-life man, her boys, and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse and mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for alpha males. Her work is now published in more than twenty-five languages across the world.

Ever want to be the heroine in a book? Despite the Alpha-Protector-Stalker qualities of the Hero? Yeah, I want to be Izzy right now in every single way. :::Sigh::: -- I forgot how much I missed JEM stories. I absolutely adore her broken men. Even in all their brokenness, they bring you to your knees, swooning and just wishing they were real in your life. They are unique in their broken-ness but the beauty in their pain is just....beautiful. Theo is just one of those men. "You’re all I can think of when I’m awake...You’re all I see in my dreams.....I crave your touch, and it’s driving me wild because I can’t let you have free rein over me." When two broken people are put in each other's paths, do we see it as fate? Izzy can't imagine why Theo would want her in his life. He is BIGGER than life and could have any woman he wants. Theo can't imagine why Izzy would want to be with someone as broken as he is, but also can't imagine anyone else being able to break through his walls. Can a person who ultimately fears violence and another who ultimately lives in violence learn to put their terrors aside for the greater possibility of forever? Superb writing that truly draws you in and makes you feel for the broken man despite the life he leads and makes you want to not put the book down for even a minute but also wants to make you throw your book across the room in fear, anger, and denial. This hit every single check-mark for me in what I look for in a story.
