Review by Jenn ~ manwhore (manwhore series #1) by Katy Evans

This wasn't part of my plan. I'm supposed to write an 

exposé about him, not let him expose me.

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?

Ruthless, they say.
A complete manwhore, they say.
And so ambitious he'd put Midas to shame. Oh yeah. They say Saint won't rest until he owns the world.

Rachel Livingston has just been handed the story that could make or break her career as a reporter, and his name is Malcolm Saint. Despite his name, there is nothing saintly about the man- a well known trust fund baby, manwhore, and a fierce business man hellbent on owning the world, surrounded by sin, money, women and toys and it is her job to expose the secrets hiding behind his cool mask and elusive personality. But getting close to him proves to be an experience she never expected as she gets a glimpse of the man he hides from the world. She never could have imagined the jaded, untrusting man surrounded by people yet still incredibly lonely. Nothing is as it seems when it comes to Saint and what was supposed to be an exposé about him bites her in the ass as he starts to expose parts of her she never knew existed. 

I imagine his flesh against me, him sliding inside me, his mouth on me, his moan of ecstasy, and I wish things were different for me, that I could actually have him. But this, this story, is all I can really have. Isn't it?

I have been a Katy Evans fan ever since I first read Real so when I saw she was diving into a new series, I was more than ready to devour it-I was not disappointed. This book had me from page one. Saint was sex on legs, everything that man did or said was completely dipped in seduction but the more time we spend with him the more we realize there is so much more to him than panty-melting lust. There really is a vulnerable side to him, a side that longs for a deeper connection to someone, even if he doesn't fully realize it. He's powerful and sinful, caring and persistent, but trust doesn't come easy to him. Being surrounded by people who are only after his money or his bed has left a hole in his life that he tries to fill with lots of expensive things and women, but he never truly fills it. There is definitely that taste of elusiveness that shrouds him and we are always left wondering just what the hell is going through his head. I do wish we could have gotten a duel POV, even just once, but the story is told entirely through Rachel so I felt like there was still so much of him left uncovered. Now Rachel had me in an emotional hott-mess. You really are taken on this journey with her and pulled through the grinder right along side of her, you can't help but connect with her and that made what she was doing that much harder to handle. I understood why she took on the story in the first place, I felt the confusion and guilt she suffered as she got to know Saint on a deeper level, I drooled as he turned her into puddle of lust-fueled goo, I cried with her when it all became too much. But in the end, I alone screamed at my kindle when we are delivered with an ending that left me on the floor in the fetal position wanting more more MORE. But alas, I will have to wait for the next book. July is sooo long away. I have a feeling I'm gonna go crazy stalker on Ms. Evans facebook dying for any teasers she may give us over the next few months. CANNOT WAIT to see what this series brings us next, hell I even fell a little in love with Saints best friends and am more than ready for more of their kind of mischief.

I'm questioning what the hell I'm doing with him right now. What do I think will come of this affair?
I didn't think, I guess. I only wanted, I wanted, obsessed, and had to have, like a young, reckless girl. Like a girl he brings out, someone I'd never been until now.

Hey! I’m Katy Evans and I love family, books, life, and love. I’m married with two children and three dogs and spend my time baking, walking, writing, reading, and taking care of my family. Thank you for spending your time with me and picking up my story. I hope you had an amazing time with it, like I did. If you’d like to know more about books in progress, look me up on the Internet, I’d love to hear from you!
