Gentleman Nine - Penelope Ward

Amber Walton was best friends Lainey Lord.  When Lainey unexpectedly dies, Amber starts hanging around her brother Channing and his friend Rory Calhoun.  They become the best of friends bonding over the tragedy.  Channing and Rory make a pact that neither of them will make a move on Amber.  When Channing leaves to go away to college, Rory makes his move.  Rory and Amber end up dating for 9 years until he breaks her heart because he needs a break.  Enter Channing.

Channing hears the news and quickly calls Amber.  He also has a favor to ask...can he rent her extra room at her place for a few months for a temp contractor job he just got.  Amber hesitantly agrees.  Problem is, she has always had a crush on Channing!  What she doesn't know is that Channing has always wanted her!

When Channing finds Amber's laptop open he sees that she has contacted a male escort service for a sex with no strings type of night.  She also sees that Amber has admitted that she is attracted to Channing.  This causes Channing to make believe like he is the Gentleman Nine Amber wants to hook up with.  She has a list of things she wants to try and Channing can't wait!  When Amber goes to meet Gentleman Nine, she runs into Channing.  He convinces her to do those things with him instead.  Of course, over the time they spend together, they start to realize there is more to their relationship than just sex.  

I loved this book and couldn't put it down!  I really enjoyed these two characters too.  They both deserved a happy ever after even if they had to wait a really long time for it.  The ending was so perfect....and a big tearjerker!
