Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling authors of the Masters of Ménage series.
They are the perfect gentlemen of Creighton Academy: privileged, wealthy, powerful friends with a wild side. But a deadly scandal is about to tear down their seemingly ideal lives....
Maddox Crawford's sudden death sends Gabriel Bond reeling. Not only is he burying his best friend, he's cleaning up Mad's messes, including his troubled company. Grieving and restless, Gabe escapes his worries in the arms of a beautiful stranger. But his mind-blowing one-night stand is about to come back to haunt him.
Mad groomed Everly Parker to be a rising star in the executive world. Now that he's gone, she's sure her job will be the next thing she mourns, especially after she ends up accidentally sleeping with her new boss. If only their night together hadn't been so incendiary - or Gabe like a fantasy come true.
As Gabe and Everly struggle to control the heated tension between them, they discover evidence that Mad's death was no accident. Now they must bank their smoldering passions to hunt down a murderer - because Mad had secrets that someone was willing to kill for, and Gabe or Everly could be the next target.

Hot romance/mystery read by sexy Kaleo Griffith!

STORY (mystery/romance) - The book starts with meeting the main characters when they're in an elite boarding school as teenagers, but the story is primarily about these "Perfect Gentlemen" after they've all become successful men. One of them is CIA, one is a Navy Captain, two are billionaire businessmen, one is the Chief of Staff and one is, yes, PODUS! They're a tightknit group and always have each other's backs. I suppose each book in the series will be about one of these hot guys and his romantic interest. This one (Book 1) is about gorgeous, sexy alpha male billionaire Gabriel Bond, owner of Bond Aeronautics.

One of the Perfect Gentlemen is killed under suspicious circumstances (Gabriel's best friend Maddox) and it looks as if Gabriel may be blamed for it. I don't want to give anything away, but the PGs all band together to figure out what's going on. As you might suspect, all the characters and their jobs are involved, so suffice it to say it's a situation of national importance. I listened every chance I could, as I was dying to see what would happen next. This isn't just a wimpy mystery to augment a hot romance. If anything, I'd say it's a hot romance to augment a totally awesome mystery!

Gabriel meets Everlee in a bar where he has gone to drown himself after Mad's funeral. I absolutely love how they meet and their first night together. It is sexy, tender, well-written and read by the awesome Kaleo Griffith. Wow, is it hot! Definitely not for those offended by intense sexual encounters. After the first time, I became less interested in their sexual relationship (as I usually do) and fast-forwarded through the sheet scenes to get back to the story.

PERFORMANCE - Kaleo Griffith could read a refrigerator manual and make me want to rip my panties off. 'Nuf said!

OVERALL - This book is almost 14 hours long. About an hour of its duration is explicit sex (three scenes), and the rest is devoted to the mystery and sprinkled with the lovers' obligatory thinking about each other and worrying about their relationship. There is cursing, but it's mostly during sexual situations. There is some shooting and death, but it doesn't rise to the level I'd call violence. The story ends well and can stand alone, but there is a large thread of the mystery left to continue in the next book of the series, which I'm definitely going to get! Recommended for all women who don't blush easily!

Really wanted wanted to love this book.

What disappointed you about Scandal Never Sleeps?

So many things wrong with this book. Story had so much potential. It belongs in the arena of 50 Shades of Grey. One, there was so much sex in this book that it totally overshadowed the story line. Two - the whole story that was supposedly a human trafficking operation for more than 20 years gets solved within a matters of three days and that too with a lot of sex going on. Three - so unreal. BASICALLY STUPID. I really wanted to like this, but there were so many times when I had to FORCE myself to continue the book, just to put it behind me.

What could Shayla Black and Lexi Blake have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I am all about romance and sex is also great, but they just over did to an irritating point. I mean come on. Maybe after reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and following books in the series have just spoiled me. They had a decent story line, but were more interested in writing about the sexual attraction between the main characters. I am so hesitant to read the next book. PROBABLY WON'T.

What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?

He narrated great. Voice was good, differentiation between characters was on point. I think he was the only thing that kept me going.

What character would you cut from Scandal Never Sleeps?

The authors, lol. Probably Valerie, the authors never developed any characters well enough to like or dislike.

Loved it!

Oh Gabriel...I think I am a little in love! The narrator did a superb job of Gabe's 'sex' voice.
An unusual story line with some good twists, can't wait for the next one.
