Blog Tour ~ Review ~ Manwhore (Manwhore #1) by Katy Evans

**ARC Received for honest review**

Reviewed by Donna ~ 5 Stars

“…but I’m aching to Sin.”

#WhoIsMalcolmSaint has been posted all over social media for the past month or so, everyone has been wondering just who Malcolm Saint is. Well now everyone can be put out of their misery…Malcolm Saint is awesome. One thing that Katy Evans always manages to deliver are amazing heroes, they are always broken in their own way yet perfect in so many others and while the title may give you the wrong impression, underneath all that social media bullshit, Malcolm Saint has a heart of gold, he just needed to find the right woman to make him find it.

“Electric…Consuming…Stubborn”

Malcolm Saint lives his life on social media, everything you ever want to know about his social life is on there, from the multiple parties to the multiple women, he was a Manwhore and he was proud of it…or was he? Saint was the epitome of perfection, he was handsome, he was successful, he was absolutely loaded, he was sexy, confident, yet underneath the public persona, he was an enigma. He steered away from the press; he kept himself to himself but underneath that façade the real man underneath is pretty kinda cool. No one knew the real Malcolm Saint, he lived his life under the spotlight but you only saw what he wanted you to see but who was Malcolm Saint really?

“Saint is the embodiment of luxurious and decadent and sin. He is Sin Itself and I feel like an absolute…virgin.”

Rachel Livingston was a reporter, she lived and breathed her job and was extremely good at it. Unfortunately the magazine was ailing and needed one big story to put them back on top. Rachel was the reporter that they trusted to get the low down on Malcolm Saint, write an expose, it was time that the world knew the man behind the persona, it would sell a tonne and it would also save the magazine and Rachel’s job. Rachel thought it would be easy, in and out, meet the man, and get to know the man, write the article and get out. It seems easy on paper, but that was before she met Malcolm Saint.

“I’m not endearing to people, Miss Livingston. I’d say people respond to me on four levels and four levels only: they want to pray to me, be me, do me or kill me.”

I have to say that while I was reading this book I was constantly on the edge of my seat, while Saint always knew Rachel was a reporter she had got her in through saying that she was writing an article about his new social media platform that was about to be released. Rachel had been economical with the truth but the more she learned about the man, the more she realised he had been grossly misrepresented.  I loved the way that this was a slow build, this was not an insta-love, we are treated to their developing friendship, that development of trust and all of those juicy lines being blurred and crossed. Rachel was a tougher nut to crack but she held her own with Saint. She needed to, she didn't fall at his feet, she challenged him, she didn't follow the usual pattern of girls that fawn all over him, she seemed disconnected but nothing could be further from the truth.

“When you come outside of your box, I’ll be waiting.”

Rachel thought she could handle it but that was before she met Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Saint thought that she would be the same as all the others but that was before he met Rachel Livingston. Their relationship was organic, it grew on the pages and you could feel it all, I felt the push and pull, the constant denials of what was developing, the sexual chemistry was undeniable, the fighting against the inevitable but all this left me wanting more. I wanted these two to succeed; they were good for each other but you always had that sinking feeling and while reading it just wouldn’t go away.

“His eyes seem to offer peeks into heaven and into some kind of party in hell...”

I felt sick, Malcolm lives for trust, trust means the most to him, in his world with his life, it is so important and knowing that Rachel hadn’t been entirely truthful had me reading this book with my stomach in my throat. Each page I turned was accompanied with dread and this made this slow build more powerful, more intense. Can the exposer avoid being exposed? Can Rachel expose knowing the real Malcolm Saint? Will work come before the Manwhore she has fallen for and who ever would have anticipated the Manwhore falling for her? The house of cards that Rachel has built is going to tumble, but what will be the repercussions?

“I’ve fallen completely in love. Spectacularly so. If you want a front seat for the debacle, I’m sure there’ll be blood.”

This is the first of a two book series and I seriously cannot wait for the next one. Katy Evans has once again managed to pull me in to another characters story and one that I desperately didn’t want to finish, I didn’t want to leave this sexy, charismatic alpha and I cannot wait to be reunited. Manwhore +1 is due to be released on 7th July and I for one will be 1clicking.
