Summary: 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?

Review: Let me warn you right now: If you don't like cliffhangers, don't read this book. But if you can sacrifice a killer ending for an irresistible bad boy and chemistry that is off the charts, you must pick up a copy of Manwhore. 

All Rachel has wanted to do was write and she's been waiting for that story that will be her big break. With her magazine on the edge of folding, Rachel is assigned The Story. Her assignment? Get close to the notorious billionaire player Malcolm Saint and write an expose that will save the magazine. Rachel finally gets an interview with the man himself and finds that he's much more mesmerizing than she had thought, and Rachel isn't the only one intrigued. Malcolm teases Rachel and shows her just how dangerous he can be, but as Rachel digs deeper and deeper into Malcolm, she starts to realize that there's more to their relationship than just attaining a story. But can Rachel truly let herself be with Malcolm when he's digging up things about herself that she hadn't even realized were there? 

Oh boy. Going in, I was worried this would be that cliched story where the girl tries to get close to the guy for bad reasons but then falls for him, then he finds out and everything is ruined until she does some big show to get him back. I'm happy to say, though, that Manwhore was so much more than that cliche storyline. First off, there's Malcolm Saint. That man. He's only 27 but acts both older and younger than he actually is. He's known for being with any woman he wants, but he's never truly let anyone in before because of his need to always have the power and has an inability to trust anyone. When Rachel walks into his office, though, the heat flies off the pages. Seriously, there was such intense chemistry between those two and I was DYING for them to get together already. There was so much teasing and so much build up to their relationship that it exploded when they finally gave in. I loved the build up, though, because both of them had to acknowledge that their relationship was unlike anything they've had and they really had to earn each other's trust before they let each other in. When they were together. Malcolm was just so darn cute that I wanted to steal him all for myself. The moments when those two were alone were so intimate and adorable and I loved it!

Rachel had a great group of friends, but they were so gosh darn negative, especially Gina. Ugh! They were all super skeptical of Rachel's relationship with Malcolm, but I guess I understand because he was a notorious womanizer. I also wished that we had gotten more of Rachel at work with her coworkers and boss. She was worked for a magazine and her coworkers seemed really interesting, but we barely got to see them. Same with Malcolm's best friends. They seemed like such fun characters and I wanted so much more of them! Hopefully we get to see them in future books because they definitely seemed like fun, especially when they were teasing Malcolm about his feelings for Rachel and purposefully embarrassing Rachel about her relationship with Malcolm. I loved how Rachel would get easily embarrassed and was so normally unsure of her relationship. She was never 100% where she stood with Malcolm and didn't like to flaunt any part of their relationship to anyone, even her best friends. Her modesty was refreshing and it made me really like her as a character. 

Wow, what else can I say? I loved the characters and the chemistry was off the charts. Both characters had their quirks and they were adorable when they dropped their guards and were just themselves together. That ending, though! How the heck am I supposed to wait for the next book to find out what's going to happen to Malcolm and Rachel? If you love a relatable heroine, a super yummy love interest, and heat that flies off the pages, you definitely have to pick up a copy of Manwhore.
