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?
As far as listening to this as an e-book it was a bit weird. Because this book is strictly in Rachel's P.O.V we only have a female narrator. This was extremely awkward to listen to a woman mimic a man's voice. It was just really weird and unpleasant especially during sex scenes. I did enjoy the female narrator though.
I really enjoyed the characters. Rachel is very smart and driven. She is doing this interview(s) to save the job she loves and that creates a conflict for her as she is attracted to Saint. I really liked Saint more so than a lot the other alpha male personalities you see in erotica. I think Katy Evans has shown that she can write a more "dominating" male character really well to the point that it isn't a horrible unhealthy relationship. Saint isn't as much of a "manwhore" as I expected him to be. There were so many swoonworthy moments throughout this book that it was awkward to be listening to it on the train. I really felt for him when he thought that Rachel had betrayed him.
The cliff hanger for this book was crazy and I can't wait for the sequel to find out what happens to these two characters. That is something I do think you should consider if you are picking up this book before the second one is released. Another downside was that the second half of the book dragged for a little bit. It just wasn't as addicting or exciting, but I did listen to this whole audiobook in about two days.
I though this book was great. I really enjoy Katy Evans' writing. I read Real last summer and highly enjoyed it. If you want a well written and developed romance I think Katy Evans is an author you should check out. I'm highly anticipating the next book in this series, but I may not choose to listen to it. I think that may have hindered my enjoyment of it a little.
Have you read any of Katy Evans books before? Also, are you a fan of audiobooks?
