About Manwhore: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?
This is kind of a mixed one for me. Normally, I usually use #ThrowbackThursday reviews to highlight my faves. But while reading Ms. Manwhore, I realized that I hardly remembered the first two books in the series. Like, to the point that I hadn’t even realized I never finished Manwhore +1. That’s bad. For me, that’s extremely rare. So I went back and started rereading the series and just wanna review as I go!
I read both books in the series in one weekend, which obviously meant I sacrificed sleep for reading. So that might have something to do with it, as well as the back-to-backness of it all, which made the two books kind of blur together.
So I went into Manwhore with super high expectations, which I always try to avoid but always fail at. So in the beginning, I didn’t dig it. The interview stuff felt so Fifty Shades overdone, and Rachel kind of annoyed me. She talks with a lot of emphasis (italics, all caps, etc.), and damn, girl’s got some daddy issues. Lots of them, actually.
I found Gina similarly irritating, but once the guys had a bigger part in the story a lot of things turned around.
Of course, I started getting charmed by Saint along with Rachel, and the book started looking up fast. Their relationship became less cliche, they had fun together, the conversations were fun to read. Saint’s friends were fun, sex scenes were hot, and cross several other ‘must haves’ off the list. Rachel still annoyed me, but I didn’t care as much.
