Review: The Making of a Gentleman by Shana Galen

Oh my goodness how I loved this book. If you haven't read this book stop what you are doing and run out and get a copy. It was so good and I am now officially obsessed with Armand! I was captivated with this story from the first page. I just couldn't put this book down. I just had to know what was going to happen with Armand and Felicity.

Armand is a scarred and damaged man. After being imprisoned for twelve years he doesn't know how to cope with everyday life. He doesn't speak and the gentlest touch brings him pain. His family insists on hiring him a tutor to help him with polite society. When Armand first meets Felicity, he is instantly entranced by her beauty. She awakens something in him he has never felt before, passion. All he wants is to be close to her regardless of society's rules and with Felicity's help, Armand knows that he can face the demons of his past.

Felicity is calm, understanding and wants nothing more than to help Armand heal and forget his past. She knows that she shouldn't have feeling for Armand but the more time she spends with him, the harder she begins to fall. From the first moment between Felicity and Armand, you could feel the electricity between the two. The passion they both possess towards the other is instant and I loved reading to see how things would turn out.

I know I've already said it, but I loved Armand. I loved that he doesn't beat around the bush. He's upfront and in your face with what he wants, and he wants Felicity. And I love that he is never ashamed of it. The passion between these two just jumps off the page, but what I love most, is that it's not only passion between these two. Both care deeply for one another and will do anything they can to keep the other one safe.

After finishing The Making of a Gentleman, I definitely can't wait to start reading the next book in this series, The Rogue Pirate's Bride. This book was just so good and I am dying to see how The Sons of the Revolution trilogy ends.
