Billionaire playboy? Check.
Ruthless businessman? Check.
Absolutely sinful? Check.
Malcolm Saint was an assignment. A story. A beautiful, difficult man I was supposed to uncover for a racy exposé.
I intended to reveal him, his secrets, his lifestyle–not let him reveal me. But my head was overtaken by my heart and suddenly nothing could stop me from falling. I fell for him, and I fell hard.
Malcolm Saint is absolute Sin, and I’ve become a hopeless Sinner.
Now that the assignment is over, Saint wants something from me–something unexpected–and I want this wicked playboy’s heart. But how can I prove to the man who trusts no one that I’m worthy of becoming his plus one?
MANWHORE +1 is book 2 in the Manwhore Series and takes up from where book 1 left off. Rachel is still suffering the loss of Saint after it was revealed that he was initially just a means to save her magazine. She misses him terribly, regrets ever taking the assignment and is desperate to get him back. When a call comes out of the blue, she’s excited but nervous to see him again. When facing him for the first time in weeks, she’s heartbroken to learn the real reason for his call is not to get back together, but for something else entirely.
I really liked Saint; he felt real to me and he’s definitely my favourite character in this book. He never opened up to a woman the way he opened up to Rachel, and her betrayal hurt him deeply. He was very angry with her, however at the same time, he wanted her in his life. But he needed to heal before he let her in again and I liked that he wasn’t too quick in forgiving her.
Rachel was ok, but she came across as insecure and needy. For a woman who claims to love him and want a relationship with him, she was still trying to decide if she could trust him to remain faithful and she was constantly making insulting little comments about him still being a manwhore. She was trying to show him that he could trust her, but why would he when she doesn’t trust him?
MANWHORE +1 is quite a long book, and to be honest, it could have been a lot shorter. There’s a lot of repetitive and overly descriptive inner monologue from Rachel. I lost count of how many times I read about Saint’s green eyes, how square his jaw was, how large his hands were, etc. I found there was so much inner monologue that during conversations, I would forget what question had been asked by the time we finally got the answer and I had to flick back a page or two to re-read the question. I ended up skipping a lot of it and just read the actual conversations between the characters.
I enjoyed this book mainly for Saint. He was amazing and when it came to dealing with Rachel, he had the patience of a saint. Yes, pun intended. I loved the ending, and again, this is because of Saint. If Rachel ever doubts him again I swear to God I’ll kick her ass.
Saint: “Have you wondered what a man in love looks like? This is what he looks like.”
