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?
I seriously don’t know how to express how I enjoyed this book. I could not say it’s perfect, but I definitely could say it’s a guilty-pleasure book and it’s one helluvah page-turner!
I love the undeniable chemistry between the main charactersMalcom Saint and Rachel Livingston. They really make a perfect and interesting couple. The character of Malcolm is apparently one big cliche (a tall, hot, billionaire, manwhore) but man, I could not deny that I love these kinds of characters (lol) no matter how they fell so unrealistic. Rachel is an okay character but there are times when she annnoys me. Nevertheless I was able to tolerate her attitude because it’s understandable. She came from a broken family and she has trust issues.
The romance is definitely HOT. I’m not even kidding! There were steamy scenes and they are a lot.
But of course the sexy scenes equal the extrimity of romance. There is a love story and the characters did not only have pure lust. The emotions were apparent and it’s one of the reasons why I was hooked. Unfortunately the plot felt a bit unoriginal because it gave me the feeling that I was reading Judith McNaught‘s contemporary romance book Double Standards. But I’ve read the said book several years ago, so reading this felt like bringing the feels back into my system again.
“All those great romances, they’re not planned, they just happen.”
As a whole, this book is great. A typical New Adult book that will surely entice romance readers. I love it! The ending was a cliffhanger, though. But I’m glad the second book is already out so I’ll definitely grab it! 🙂
