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?

in review my thoughts

I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about this book going in. Somehow the title Manwhore was equal parts intriguing and off-putting. I think it’s just because I’ve read my fill of books with weak women and manwhores that walk all over them and screw anything with the right bits before ultimately falling for the good girl. Sure, I’ve enjoyed that storyline in the past, but I’m over it (unless there’s something unique about it). The good news? That is not this book AT ALL.

Sure, Malcolm has quite the history as a manwhore. But we’re not forced to read about it here. He’s a man in the public eye, so there’s always speculation, but he began to change when he met Rachel. It didn’t take long before I was singing his praises. Rachel took a little while longer to warm up to, however.

Malcolm was downright damn swoony. He was just alpha enough to make him untouchable, but sexy enough to make you want to do all the touching. He might have appeared detached and ruthless on the outside, but underneath it all he was a really good guy. I loved how he pursued Rachel. I have to admit I went back and forth with Rachel quite a bit during this book. I just didn’t have the easy connection with her that I did with Malcolm.

From their very first meeting, I was shipping Malcolm and Rachel hard. I wanted it to be about so much more than the article she was writing. They had an instant connection, and despite my somewhat mixed feelings for her, I was all about them together. Holy sexual tension. It’s been awhile since I read a book that had as much as this one did. I was constantly fanning myself and telling them to get on with it. Rest assured, they did, and it was super freaking hot.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I seriously couldn’t put it down once I started reading. I found myself stuck between enjoying each moment between Malcolm and Rachel and freaking out at the thought of what would happen when the other shoe dropped. I didn’t want them to be over. I didn’t want Malcolm to go back to his manwhore ways. I was more of a nervous wreck than I should probably admit to being. The end of this book came far too soon (and with a slightly wicked cliffhanger) and I’ll be counting down the days until I find out what happens next!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I won’t lie, I’m not a fan of this title either, but I loved Katy’s Real series, so I had to give it a try. I’m glad to know ahead of time about the cliffhanger though! Also it’s good to note Rachel wasn’t your favorite- did you ever end up warming up to her? Disliking the main characters can really ruin a book for me, so I’m a little nervous now.
