Cover Reveal: Gentleman Number Nine by Penelope Ward

Check it out!
The cover for Penelope Ward's upcoming, contemporary romance, Gentleman Nine.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the cover - kinda boring and the guy doesn't do it for me - but the blurb sounds gooooood.

Growing up, the three of us were friends.
He was the nerd.
I was the playboy.
She was the beauty.

Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits.
He lied.

I went off to college, and he got the girl.
Amber never knew how I felt.
They were together for years—before he broke her heart.

Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch.
When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.
One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings.
Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity.
Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message.
She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.)

Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. 
When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she got the surprise of her life to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

If you like the sounds of this one, you can get your hands on a copy 19th Feb 2018.

  1. I really adore books about friends. I don't know I just think its great when friends become lovers. I enjoyed the blurb also. I do not however like the cover. Kinda boring and I hate the hat. Hate it. Yucky for a cover. Girls want to imagine running there hands in that covemans hair...How can we tell when it's covered by a hat.

    Have a good week.

    1. Lol, I'm not opposed to hats but in this case I agree 100%. The cover isn't good. :)
