Manwhore: Manwhore # 1 by Katy Evans
A hot sexy story up today from Katy Evans. Please read on for my review of this steamy story with plenty of heart.
There are people you wish exposed, but what happens when during the digging you find yourself stripped bare? That’s what happens with Rachel in her attempts to ‘get the story’ that will bring down the “Saint” and save the failing media outlet that pays her bills. I thoroughly enjoyed this author’s title, Ripped, so I was prepared for a good listen.
What I did not expect was the depth and emotional draw of these characters, even when I was wondering if there was any redemption for Saint, I still couldn’t turn away. Rachel has convinced herself that she can handle anything, and she is particularly NOT INTERESTED in a man like Saint. He’s the most notorious player in Chicago: arrogant, relentless, driven, alpha with a heavy helping of cocky. He’s facile with his faces: very few know the real man, or the worries and concerns that lie beneath the façade. But, as Rachel digs, consumed by the expose she is writing, she finds more depth, and that depth is attractive.
Slowly their attraction moves from tentative sparks to full blown conflagration, engulfing them both in the emotions and draw of the relationship. Rachel grows and blooms under Saint’s care: and he loses the edge that bordered on giant pain in the ass. The depth of sharing and evidenced intimacy that moved past the Oh So Steamy sexy moments moved this relationship into another level of awesome. And then, Rachel tells Saint WHY she sought him out. Hint here: ALWAYS tell the target of your investigation before you get your heart involved too deeply. Forgiveness is not always easy to come by, and we have to wait to see if Saint can or will forgive Rachel.
Narration for this story is more than capably provided by Grace Grant, and she has narrated some of my favorite listens. Grace’s style is a subtle one: there are no huge transitions for character voices or emotional reveals, but subtle, distinct and wholly believable inflections, pitch changes and speech patterns that bring characters to life. This was an incredibly gripping and emotional read, fueling all my interest in the next book in the series.

About the Book:
Book #1 in the sexy new Manwhore series from the New York Times bestselling author of REAL. 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?
