This story was unique for me and it caught my attention from the very beginning. Brielle is a twenty six year old, hard worker, single woman; searching for help to try to attract her best friend that she has had a crushed on for five years. She wanted to win him over and needed help on doing so. After so many dates and failed relationships; she was giving up on love and needed guidance. Browsing the internet for dating sites she came across a very interesting ad “The Gentleman Mentor”. My first thought was “Where can I find one of those sites in my state?” haha. Ok the story. She gets nervous but she is intrigued about it and decides to give it a go.
Brielle, was just looking for help on how to be confident in the bedroom department; so she meets with her mentor in hopes that he will be of help and worth her time and money. What she didn’t know was that Mr. Mentor was a hot piece of a man. He was tall, dark messy hair, with gorgeous mocha-colored eyes, he smelled delicious and all the sudden she was instantly attracted to this man who was supposed to help her reach her ultimate goal ”to attract the love of her life.” She instantly regretted her decision because it could turn out dangerous for her due to the instant chemistry they had; however she don’t want to give up that soon and decides to put any stupid feelings aside and accomplished what she paid for.
Cameron hale, a twenty-eight year old from Chicago, had a terrible love experience that left his heart shattered and broken. He worked in a law firm and was very well known. His hobby was to be a member of an underground BDSM club in Chicago and took mentoring as a side pleasure. He took it very seriously though, after his personal experience he never wanted to get attached to the woman he trained. The minute he meets Brielle his heart skipped a bit as well. He too was instantly attracted to this woman. He couldn’t understand why she wasn’t taken yet so it made it more interesting for him to teach her. He felts like he needed to do it more so for him not for her and he was going to enjoy their six classes together as much as he could.
What started as a teacher/student kind of thing escalated very quickly for the both of them. The very first lesson was intense he wanted her and she gave herself to him like she has never before. Never in her life has she had the experience he gave her in one lesson. She couldn’t stand the feelings and emotions this man was making her have. He too wanted to stay away but he couldn’t as much as he tried he just couldn’t. However, he ends up pushing her away though before the end of their last session he gives her the best night of her life and then goes and leaves her feeling like nothing. She thought that perhaps what she was feeling was mutual but he confused her by his actions and she felt like a fool. Later though she finds out he wasn’t actually running away because he didn’t feel anything for her but because of his past. Brielle decides to find out more about him and get into his world to understand him; she realized trying to win someone’s love was foolish. The best friend she believed she was in loved with was just an illusion; in fact she realized that there was nothing she really loved about him and wasn’t sure how on earth she didn’t see it. With Hale was different she knew he felt the same for her and she was going to make him understand that she is not like the person that broke his heart. Overall this was a sweat story it was not as intense as I was expecting it to be. I enjoyed all the characters and I loved the chemistry between Hale and Brielle. They ended up together and finding true love and a second change for the both of them.
