Synopsis: 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?

Review: 5 Stars - Manwhore by author Katy Evans is the first book in an exciting new series from the author who brought readers her delicious Alpha males in her REAL series. This time around she tackles a new kind of Alpha male and the woman who gets under his skin.

Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint - It’s not something you’ll forget once you meet the man behind the long sexy name. He’s closed off, a man of few words and the world at his finger tips. He likes a challenge, goes after everything and anything he wants with one goal in mind. Winning. He’s scarred on the inside. Damaged from his dark head of hair to the tips of his toes from a past he had no control over, he’s never alone yet you can see just how lonely he is as it comes pouring off of him.

Enter Rachel the writer who’s been giving a chance of a life time. Find out all she can to unlock the mystery that is Saint and expose him for all that he is. Good or bad, she’s beyond thrilled to have the chance to work on such a high profiled person – that she goes above and beyond to complete the challenging story with hopes of taking her career to the next level.

There’s no question about this… I LOVED the book. The characters are, each in their own ways mysterious. Malcolm trickles bits and pieces to Rachel as the two meet numerous times under the guise of an Interview about his latest venture, which then their meetings turn into something more as something begins to grow between these two. And as the story is written from Rachel’s point of view, you never really know exactly what’s going on behind the brooding man himself.

I was right along there with Rachel wondering how he’d react next and often cringed wondering if she’d pushed things too far one way or the other and if it would then push the extremely private man away. And yet as their relationship grew, I was just as confused as Rachel was in not only her feelings but also why they were both holding so much back.

Speaking of their relationship… it was beautiful, sexy and often times confusing, yet the confusing part was supposed to be that way. It’s how these two are, so it was important to the story. At least in my eyes.

Something you can always count on when it comes to this amazing author is her characters and their stories. It’s without a doubt the driving force when it comes to her books. You get characters who are more than memorable. They leave a mark so deep you can’t help but continue to wonder about them long after reading. And their stories and past leave you both parts fulfilled and gasping for more.

Also, can I just say, for the most part the secondary characters drove me NUTS! There were three of them that I wanted to have words with and I often wondered why they surrounded themselves with people who were somewhat toxic. Yet it didn’t take away from the story and added to the two main characters themselves. Made me wonder more about them as people because of who they had surrounded themselves with.

The stories are rich and the writing is always done wonderfully well yet as Katy writes more you see just how far she’s come from her first book to her last. Katy is without a doubt extremely talented and never seems to do anything other than amaze me.

Manwhore was so much more than what I was expecting it to be. The story flies by and while reading will leave readers feeling many emotions from beginning to end. I felt a gamut of them and I know others will as well. It’d be hard not to once you meet these characters!

I’ve been a fan and friend of Katy for a long while now and am happy to say that she’s not only blown me away yet again, but she’s gone so above and beyond the bar this time… it’s hard to put into words just how much I loved this book and author.

There’s no doubt in my mind when it comes to recommending this title to others. It’s a contemporary that readers will find characters to love and a story you won’t want to end. And now we wait for Manwhore + 1. *taps fingers* Katy…. I need more Malcolm and Rachel ASAP! Happy Reading.
