Billionaire playboy? Check.
Ruthless businessman? Check.
Absolutely sinful? Check.
Malcolm Saint was an assignment. A story. A beautiful, difficult man I was supposed to uncover for a racy exposé.
I intended to reveal him, his secrets, his lifestyle—not let him reveal me. But my head was overtaken by my heart and suddenly nothing could stop me from falling. I fell for him, and I fell hard.
Malcolm Saint is absolute Sin, and I've become a hopeless Sinner.
Now that the assignment is over, Saint wants something from me--something unexpected--and I want this wicked playboy's heart. But how can I prove to the man who trusts no one that I’m worthy of becoming his plus one?
I’ve been dying to get my hands on this book since the wicked cliffhanger at the end of Manwhore. I was also a little concerned Malcolm would go back to his player ways and all the progress of the first book would be lost. And, really, that would’ve ruined the whole thing for me. I had no desire to read about him with anyone other than Rachel. Thankfully, my fears were unfounded. After finding out the truth about the article Rachel was writing, Malcolm spent more time being reckless and adventurous than hopping beds.
Manwhore +1 was, more or less, exactly the continuation I wanted for Rachel and Malcolm’s story. Now, I’m not going to tell you details, because it’s all best experienced for yourself. It was just angsty enough to be believable without being overwhelming. The sexual tension in the beginning of the novel, as Rachel and Malcolm are reunited for business purposes, is INTENSE. Malcolm’s relationship with his father comes into the forefront here, but doesn’t overshadow the story between Rachel and Malcolm. The drama is great, but the romance is even better. The sexy times? So. Freaking. Hot. Rachel and Malcolm have incredible chemistry – in and out of the bedroom.
This book had me swooning all over the place. It also had me overheating from time to time. I liked the progress both characters made. Where I was lukewarm to Rachel in the first book, I was anything but in this one. I liked how she took ownership of what happened with her and Malcolm. She wasn’t whiny. She just wanted him back and would do whatever she could to prove to him that she was trustworthy. Malcolm was wonderful and swoony and hot as could be.
Manwhore +1 doesn’t end in a cliffhanger. In fact, the ending was quite satisfying – and there might have been a few happy tears. However, I’ll still be chomping at the bit waiting for the next book, Ms. Manwhore. Is it October yet?!
