REVIEW: Manwhore by Katy Evans

by - 12:28 PM

“'We don’t fit,' I say. 'I just want to find a spot, warm not cold, with a nice view, everything I could want, and I want to stop moving and stay there—in that spot. And you will never stand still.'” 

Back of the book blurb:

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.

My rating:

            Okay, I knew with a book blurb like that, I would not be disappointed. And obviously, by the rating, I wasn’t. There are so many things I’m feeling right now. I have this picture of what I believe Malcolm would look like saved in my phone and it’s semi-NSFW, which is why I’m not uploading it here and I WISH I COULD BECAUSE OH MY GOD!!!!! The picture is so hot and I just know Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint is an actual Greek god.

            The plot is just a recipe for disaster. That sounds SO HARSH, but I mean it in the best way possible. It’s a disaster for our lovely characters, Rachel Livingston and Malcolm Saint. Rachel is an aspiring journalist who finally gets a chance to make a name for herself and of course, she’s put up against a force to be reckoned with. The tension between these two is so tangible, even in their first meeting.

I’m new to Katy Evans’s writing and wow, this girl can write! As an aspiring YA/NA romance author, I always look for new authors who can teach me new things and I am so happy I found Katy Evans. There are only a select few authors who can make me really feel their scenes and Katy Evans is now up there along with Colleen Hoover, Abbi Glines, and Christina Lauren. There is just something about her scenes, whether they’re sexual or not, that get to me. Rachel was so alive to me. And I believe that’s the goal of a book; it’s to make the reader actually feel like they’re experiencing everything the protagonist is experiencing and that’s exactly what this book did for me.

Rachel was such a fun character. She was funny, she was brave, she was sad, she was everything. She was beautiful. And I always fall for the ones who try so hard to not become attached and end up falling harder than they could have ever imagined, because I completely identify with that. And while Rachel tried her hardest, she was not immune to the magic that are Malcolm Saint’s beautiful green eyes. (Also, less than 2% of the world has green eyes; why are they all in books?)

If you’re looking for a brooding alpha male with a soft streak, a hard body, and a hard and long you-know-what, look no further. (I don’t know why all of a sudden I’ve become a prude. I can say the word “cock” if I want to, dammit!) Malcolm Saint is the man for you! Actually, no. That’s not true. He’s MINE! Rachel might disagree, but that’s okay. I think I can take her. I actually enjoy only having one narrator instead of a dual narrator in my romances because while I love knowing that they’re both hopelessly in love, it’s always the thrill of the chase (hehe, that’s me) that gets me. I thought Evans did an exceptional job of only having one narrator and keeping the pace fast and the plot thrilling. And I really loved trying to figure Malcolm out alongside Rachel. It also added to his character because we were kept at a distance from him, mostly, and that’s how he likes to keep people. It’s so dreamy, not knowing what a man thinks. Oh, Malcolm!

Last but not least, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? THAT GODDAMN CLIFFHANGER? Now Katy Evans is just showing off. THAT’S NOT FAIR. I knew, going into this book, that there was a sequel, but I had no idea that I’d have to read it. I’m so UPSET, but also really excited to continue Rachel’s and Malcolm’s story.

PLEASE PICK UP THIS BOOK. You know you want to!

Happy Reading!
