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.

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?
I love everything about this book- the title, the book cover, all the characters, and yes, even the cliffhanger of an ending... book 2, Manwhore + 1, can't come soon enough.
Now, where to begin... I think what really keeps the readers attention is the sexual tension between Rachel and Malcolm aka Saint. These two meet under professional circumstances, but Saint is a good looking man, so it was only a matter of time before Rachel saw past her subject of the expose and saw the actual man that he is. Not many people know the real man behind the persona he puts out, but Rachel starts to uncover him, not much, but little bits at a time, then eventually they get under the covers for real.
I liked that these characters didn't jump each others bones right off the bat. I enjoyed the build up, the back and forth banter, the fleeting kisses and touches... Rachel really struggles with being a professional and chasing the story of a life time with feelings that she has never felt for a man before in her life. She starts to question what is more important to her and the guilt is hard to deal with at times. Rachel and Saint's friends, especially Gina and Tahoe, bring a lot of comedic relief when needed. Though Gina can be a bit much, a little overbearing at times, you can see how much she cares about Rachel, and she really needs that.
Manwhore, for me, just scraped the surface... in a good way. This book introduces us to interesting new characters and I can't wait to see if Rachel can crack open the mystery that is Malcolm Saint in the next book!
