Release Blitz + Review + Excerpt: GENT by Harloe Rae

GENTRaven Elliot blasts into town like a wrecking ball—striking and devastating.
With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.

“Is this seat taken?”

I could close my eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover’s caress. 
But this isn’t that type of story.
And I’m sure as hell not that kind of man.

She hovers in my space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly.
The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace.
But I’m not falling for it.
And Raven doesn’t take the hint.

What starts as a battle of wills, explodes into a turf war. 
She stands directly in my path everywhere I turn. 
No matter how hard I shove, she won’t budge. 
Raven seems dead set on driving me insane.
But I was here first. 
And I’m not going down easy. 

After all, no one ever taught me how to treat a lady.

Whew. Lather me up and call me buttercup – wow. Seriously that was beyond hot. It was drop dead, palm sweating, checking my loins hot. Really just the cover alone is jilling inspiration in the making… that face…. oh my lanta. And guess what? Not only is the cover yummy but so are the insides. It was scrumptious.

Let me be straight, I have never read anything Harloe Rae and by golly miss molly I am missing out! I tell you what, her writing style is absolutely stunning. The entirety of this novel was perfection for me in a lot of ways. The overall plot was great, it was a fun chemistry tension filled romance where the main characters had this uncanny connection that was both thrilling and sweet. 

I will actually admit for once I do not have much to say in terms of pet peeves around the characters. Raven is a nice blend of adventurous yet sweet female lead, she handles herself. I liked her personality in more ways than one, she was forceful and a tidbit sassy, at least enough to put up with Trey. Trey on the other spectrum is this out in open asshole who as this brutality presence, he is delicious. I do so love the cocky personalities in men. 

With the clashing of their personalities as well made the chemistry of Trey and Raven that much more edible. At first the bickering, the tension filled banter that moved into sexual steam and then onto our favorite times, really the best of times, the panty dropping sex. They were on fire. I am pretty confident that if words could cummm-bust, this book would be engulfed in flames. It was a wet dream of explosive proportions.   

Putting the steam full chemistry aside, it wasn’t just the main characters I loved, I really enjoyed the secondary characters in more ways than one. They made even the romantic drama hilariously entertaining. 

Definitely LOVED this! Gent was such a quick, entertaining read with enough spice and drama that made it both believable for the fictional characters, not too over the top but just right for my quivering porn thoughts. The romance was rugged and sweet with all things nice. I really enjoyed this. I look forward to adding more to my TBR of Marloe Rae.

“Listen, babe—” She holds up her hand like a stop sign and for some reason, having her interrupt doesn’t bother me.

“Did you just babe me?” Her question is all sass.

“Sure did, sweetheart. Call ‘em like I see ‘em. Don’t pretend to be offended. We both know why you’re over here talking to me.”

Her face turns an adorable shade of pink. “First, stop with the nicknames. Second, are you for real? What the hell is wrong with you?”

“I don’t see any issue. You’re the one disrupting my quiet evening.”

“What the…I mean, seriously? I want to sit down and this is the only available spot. You honestly think I came over here to hit on you?”

Her ridiculous question doesn’t deserve a response. My glare matches hers as I silently explain my opinion on the matter. My expression must tell her everything she needs to know.

“Wow, you’re an asshole.”

“You’re the third woman to call me that tonight. Be careful, I might get a complex.”

“Aw, poor baby. I’d hate to dent your fragile ego,” she snips with a curl in her lip.

“There’s nothing fragile about me. Don’t worry. I’m hard and solid. Wanna feel?” I ask and pat my abs.

She nods to my hands. “No, thanks. I’d hate for you to rub off on me.”

“Does the grease under my nails bother you? Princess is afraid of getting a little dirty?”

“Do you get a rise out of being mean?”

I lean against the bar and cross my arms. “I don’t get many complaints. You’re not from around here, so I’ll fill you in—the ladies love me.”

“Pretty sure I saw Barbie McCleveage storm off after chatting with you. She didn’t look too satisfied.”

“Now who’s using nicknames? Jealous much?”

“Hardly,” she huffs.  

I smirk before checking out her rack, being extremely obvious about it. Pushing her buttons takes away the tension from earlier, replacing it with a surprising ease. Fighting with her is the most nonsexual fun I’ve had with a woman in a long time. Wonder how she’d react if I called her ma’am.

“All right, all right. You’ve broken me down. I was set on not having any company tonight, but for you, I’ll make an exception. If you insist on standing here, blabbing away, I’ve got far better uses for that luscious mouth. My place isn’t too far away,” I suggest while waggling my brows. My behavior is over the top, but what can I say? She’s bringing out the best in me. Her lips part in shock. This stranger just stares at me, and I’m sure she’s about to turn away… or slap me. Either way, mission accomplished. But this chick is full of surprises.
