Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player—without getting played?
This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.
Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life he’s been surrounded by the press as they dig for tidbits to see if his fairytale life is for real or all mirrors and social media lies. Since he hit the scene, his secrets have been his and his alone to keep. And that’s where I come in.
Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, I’m determined to make him the story that will change my career.
But I never imagined he would change my life. Bit by bit, I start to wonder if I’m the one discovering him…or if he’s uncovering me.
What happens when the man they call Saint, makes you want to sin?
I think the first thing I have to say is…what a title! I’d hate it if I was one of those people who don’t like others to know what they are reading because they will have a hard time if MANWHORE is sitting on their desks or in their hands on the train/bus/subway/what have you. Luckily, I am not one of those people.
Being that this was written by Katy Evans, author of the awesomely awesome Real series, there was no point in even thinking about not reading it. The premise pulled me in with its likeness to “How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days” type story line and hero, Malcom Saint sounded delish.
Rachel is looking for the story of the century. Something to help pull in readership and boost the dwindling magazines numbers that she works for. She’s asked to go undercover and get the inside scoop on the elusive bachelor playboy, Malcom Saint. She spends an inordinate amount of time on his sexiness. I mean over and over again, he’s hot. Being from Rachel’s POV the readers cant get away from his awesomeness. Everything he does is perfect and she’s not worthy of his attention….even though she’s been assigned to get his attention and is doing everything in her power to cross his path, repeatedly. Over the course of her assignment Rachel finds that Malcom isn’t just the man that the tabloids show. The depth to him, and her growing feelings cause her to waffle in her steadfastness to write the perfect expose.
I liked this one but I was slightly pissed off that it ended in a sort-of cliffhanger. By that I mean it ended in the middle of a scene….which was ODD. Nothing huge happened, it just stopped and was all “that’s all you get folks, come back for more”. Being a trilogy, I assumed that each book would be about one of the massively rich bachelors. I liked Rachel and Malcom but I don’t know how much more can happen with them other than a resolution to Rachel’s deception. I’m hoping they get a novella and not an entire other book. In addition to that I got so mad at Rachel’s pessimistic “all loves sucks” best friend. Seriously, it felt like she was out to keep her best friend as unhappy as she obviously was. I got that she was trying to save her from heartbreak, but geez if you don’t take any chances you’ll never find happiness.
Manwhore is a decent start to Evans new series, and I am curious enough to come back for more.
I give Manwhore by Katy Evans 3.25 stars!
