Review: Wanted, a Gentleman by K.J. Charles

Wanted a GentlemanHappy 500th blog post to me! Thanks for hanging out with me.


I was initially unsure whether I wanted to read this book, despite my previous enjoyment of all of the author’s works. However, a quiet evening at home when I knew I was falling ill demanded comfort reading, and this book was the perfect choice.

This story was a fantastic blend of fast-paced action and quiet, delightful moments between the characters (both sexy and fully clothed). I adored Martin’s character and his very human moral quandaries. 

My only quibble about this book is the fact that Theo is a very unreliable narrator. I understand why Charles made the decisions that she did, but I hate being in a character’s point of view and then finding out that they were hiding something major later in the story just to preserve a twist for the reader. It’s a great twist and a very fun read, but bothered me in retrospect.

Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
