Publisher's Summary

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He's worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world - attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride - all to aid his campaign. He didn't realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position - one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can't risk is Elizabeth Matthews.

From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she'd thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he's done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side - not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him.

As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other's arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves....

Contains mature themes.

Epic

If I was stuck on an island I would take with me the gentleman series. At the pleasure of the president is epic. Thank you very much and I wouldn’t mind seeing these series made into a movie.

Stunning conclusion to an epic series!!

Ironic how much this book captures some of the things going on in the world today.... however, it ties all the books together and wraps up the series in a true Shayla Black/Lexi Blake fashion....in a word it was outstanding. Narration was wonderful and the flow of all the characters was great. my only hope is that this will spin off into a new series... fingers crossed!!!

Great conclusion to the series

Greg Boudreaux did a fabulous job narrating this book.using a variety of voices he brought this story to life for me. Although this can be read as a stand-alone, I would recommend you read the first four books. It will give you a better understanding and background to what is happening as there is a continuing story line throughout the books. This is a hard review to write as I do not want to give away any spoilers. I love an alpha male, add in a feisty heroine and I am there. The action is fast paced, I was on the edge of my seat and I read this book in almost one read. I just didn’t want to put it down; I had to know what happened! The suspense, drama, plot twists and turns had me totally enthralled and I found myself reading well in to the early hours of the morning. This is President Zack Hayes and Elizabeth (Liz) Matthews story and it was captivating to say the least. All of the Perfect Gentleman and their women come together to support Zack as they fight an enemy that is not only trying to destroy Zack but the very foundation of their country. The chemistry between Zack and Liz is electrifying and intense. Danger lurks around every corner as Zack and his fellow members of the Perfect Gentlemen Club continue their investigations till it reaches it’s explosive conclusion. Will Zack be able to make a choice between the woman he loves and the country that is his heart and soul? The continuity between the authors was seamless. I have no idea who wrote which part and honestly, it doesn’t matter; it was brilliant from start to finish. Superbly written, an outstanding read. Superbly written, an outstanding read. A fitting conclusion to one of my favourite romantic suspense series EVER.

I am SO sad this series is Over!!! I LOVE THEM!

EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING about this series had me captured. I loved the narrator on this one as well as the others but this one pretty much sums up the entire series and the ending of a true scandal. I love the bond between the Perfect Gentleman and the love and protection they showed each other and the women in their lives. I laughed so much at Madd (my favorite character)!! I listened to this on AS SOON as it came out because I wanted to know what happened to MADD... Just hope to see more with their children! That will be a whoot!!

🌻well, this was a real let down🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 I was so excited when I noticed that this book was out. I had loved the series, thus far, and was anxious for Zach to find his happy. Right from the beginning I noticed that this book didn’t have the same intensity, as the others, in this series. Zach’s story has been fed to us, in small bites, in the other Perfect Gentlemen’s books. There has always been this mystery surrounding the death of Zach’s first wife and his childhood nanny. Then Maddox’s plane crashed under mysterious circumstances and I was on the edge of my seat, in anticipation. However, the book started out slow and instead of the PG unraveling the mystery, the authors decided to have these spies and Zach’s Dad decide to spill their guts. Really? This conspiracy has been kept secret for 40 years and, all of the sudden, these bad guys get a conscious? It’s really too bad that these gals ruined what had been a really well written series, by getting lazy with the last book.😭

Befitting Ending

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. So much so that I'm sad to see it end. There were a few things I guessed from the other books in the series and I was looking forward to finding out if I guessed right. I hope Shayla and Lexie come up with another action packed series like this. Here's a thought, what happens with the next generation? Hmmmm (smile).

Perfect HEA!

This final book in the Perfect Gentleman series was absolutely spot on in tyeing up the entire series, solving the mystery, getting all the bad guys and most importantly, getting the last 2 gentleman their HEA in the sweetest, sexiest way that only Shayla and Lexi could have done. Everyone should get this series! I know I will read it over again!

Nice wrap up

This is the last of the Perfect Gentleman series and did a decent job of weaving the intrigue. Some of the endgame becomes a bit invoice towards the end, but am amazing job at working out two romances out in one book without a ton of obvious flogging back and forth. The narrator was fairly pleasant to listen to and did a great job on this. This is definitely a series I'll listen to again.

Awesome series!

This was the perfect ending to a great 5 book series. You must read the entire series to get the full impact of the book. The epilogue wraps the series up beautifully.

Wow

What an ending to this series. So glad to see Mad back from the dead. Quirky Freddy was such a blast. Lots of lies and a lack of trust. But in the end love was all that was required. Loved the ending. Narration was awesome too.
