Review & Giveaway | Manwhore by Katy Evans

BLURB
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?



MY THOUGHTS
Malcom Saint is a bad-boy billionaire who can always be found surrounded by a bevy of beautiful women and with his face splashed all over the tabloids. He's a party-boy, a ladies man and in short, a total manwhore. He's also the subject of Rachel Livingston's latest exposé and her only chance at saving her struggling magazine and keeping her job. But the closer she gets to him, the deeper she's pulled in by their attraction and the side of him that never gets printed in the papers. Caught between her guilt over lying to Saint, her growing obsession with him and the new facets of herself she discovers when she's with him, Rachel fears risking her heart to a man that's known for being incapable of committing to just one woman.

I'm usually not a fan of first-person narratives but I think that by limiting the story to only Rachel's perspective intensified the feeling of being unsure of how committed Saint really is to their relationship. I also really appreciated that Saint's character defies common bad-boy billionaire stereotypes. He does have some Daddy issues but he's not overly broody or inconsiderate and dismissive of the people in his realm. He's just an incredibly hardworking man who often indulges with the women who throw themselves at him, He's incredibly charitable, a loyal friend, and once he sets his sights on Rachel his eyes don't wander.

I really loved Rachel as a heroine as well. She's caring, hard-working and feels things very deeply, as hard as she tries to keep up the walls that make her feel safe and unexposed. I lost my father at a very young age much like she did, and I can completely understand the emotional repercussions that something like that has on relationships and your ability to open yourself up to people.

Rachel and Saint have some sweet, funny moments together when they're opening up emotionally and teasing each other. But hell, they are also incredibly hot together! This book is a total scorcher! The push and pull of their cat-and-mouse game makes the slow build all the better. I honestly couldn't put the book down. Saint and Rachel are intoxicatingly addictive!

I didn't know that Malcolm and Rachel's story continues in the next installment of the series and only discovered this fact upon reading the last line of the novel. I think the anticipation might kill me. I need to know how their meeting will turn out and where their relationship will go from here. But at the same time, knowing that I've got a whole new book filled with more Saint and Rachel coming out in a few months makes me so happy. If you're looking for a scorching contemporary romance featuring a billionaire with a hidden heart of gold and a guarded heroine, Manwhore is one to pick up! This was my first book by Katy Evans but I truly loved it and will definitely be picking up the rest of her novels.

  3. Honestly? A regular guy who recognizes he's not perfect but who steps up to the plate when needed. I don't need a saint, but I don't want someone who's pigeonholed as a sinner either ;) Just someone who's smart and determined--that's sexy.
