Ms. Manwhore by Katy Evans

Manwhore, Book 2.5

Synopsis: Katy Evans returns with a sexy novella, the final installment of the unforgettable love story that began in Manwhore.

What lies ahead for Chicago’s most envied couple, Malcolm Saint and Rachel Livingston?

Sparks flew between them in Manwhore. Separated by deception, they felt the intensity and heat of their attraction turn up in Manwhore +1.

Will Chicago’s wealthiest and most notorious player finally settle down, or will one woman never be enough? Find out in Ms. Manwhore, the ultimate conclusion to their electric, breathtaking story.

Review: The author announces at the beginning of the book that she was not ready to leave Malcolm and Rachel and I must say that I am really happy that she gave them this last little story. So we find our two heroes in full wedding preparations.

It was a pleasure to see them both, to observe their impatience to attend this moment. I will not say much more because it is true that the story is short and I prefer for you to discover it yourself, but I had a good time with this novella and I think you will be delighted if you liked the previous ones. Rachel and Saint? What more can we ask for? In any case, I am now very eager to read Volume 3 to have the story of Tahoe after having seen so much about him in the novels and especially to see what can happen with Gina.


Madame Malcolm de Katy Evans

Manwhore, Tome 2.5


Après tout ce qu’ils ont traversé, la trahison, les mensonges et la rupture, Malcolm et Rachel sont enfin heureux ensemble et prêt à s’engager.

Mais pour ce couple, rien n’est simple puisque leur histoire est scrutée et interprétée par les médias.

Après des fiancailles sous le feu des projecteurs, il est temps de s’attaquer tranquillement aux préparatifs du mariage. Mais c’est sans compter sur Rachel, qui, afin de pimenter leur vie, refuse de faire l’amour avec Malcolm jusqu’au jour J.

L’organisation du mariage sera synonyme de frustration et de séduction tant que le jeune homme ne pourra pas posséder la femme qu’il aime.

Avis : L’auteure annonce au début du livre qu’elle n’était pas prête à laisser Malcolm et Rachel et je dois dire que je suis vraiment contente qu’elle leur ait accordé cette dernière petite histoire. Nous retrouvons donc nos deux héros en plein préparatifs de mariage.

C’était un régal de les retrouver tous les deux, de voir leur impatience mais aussi d’assister à ce moment. Je ne vais pas en dire beaucoup plus parce qu’il est vrai que l’histoire est courte et je préfère que vous découvriez ça vous-même, mais j’ai passé un bon moment avec cette nouvelle et je pense que vous serez ravis si vous avez aimé les précédents. Rachel et Saint ? Que demander de plus ? Dans tous les cas, je suis maintenant très impatiente de lire le tome 3 pour avoir l’histoire de Tahoe après l’avoir tant vu dans les romans et surtout pour voir ce qu’il pourra se passer avec Gina.


Manwhore +1 by Katy Evans

Manwhore, Book 2

Synopsis: 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?

Review: I really loved the first volume of the series and in view of the cliffy at the end of the story, I was really looking forward to reading this second novel. Lots of questions turned on my mind: will Malcolm forgive her? Will she succeed in conquering him? Will her letter suffice? But now, when she shows up in his office after the debacle, the last thing she would have expected was a job offer … No, that was not really what she was waiting for.

It is true that we understand perfectly the two characters. Rachel is at fault for not revealing the truth to him and she is now suffering all the consequences. Yet she knows that she can not live without Saint, that he has become essential to her and she is ready to do anything to be forgiven if he still wants her. It really hurts to see the state in which our heroine is. Seeing that she is possibly one among many others now.

Saint is suspicious of her, we understand perfectly well that he was wounded, yet it is difficult to say what he really wants. No, you see he has not lost his mystery! They will thus reconnect little by little. It will not be so simple, but Rachel will do everything to make it work.

It was again a very good volume and this time no cliffy! Yes! But I admit that I am still very curious to read this third novel! A very nice surprise again.



Malcolm +1 de Katy Evans

Manwhore, Tome 2


Rachel avait l’intention de révéler au grand jour la personnalité sulfureuse de Malcolm Saint.

Au lieu de ça, elle est tombée amoureuse de lui, et l’a trahi quand il a découvert ses véritables intentions : en apprendre le plus possible sur lui et publier un article révélant ses secrets.

Alors qu’il ne faisait confiance qu’à lui-même, il est blessé par la seule personne qu’il a aimé, et décide de mettre un terme à leur relation.

Mais c’est trop tard, Rachel l’aime et elle fera tout pour regagner sa confiance.

La jeune femme se trouve face à un autre dilemme : alors qu’elle doit démissionner de Edge, le journal people pour lequel elle travaille en tant que journaliste, Malcolm lui propose un emploi dans son entreprise. Doit-elle saisir cette opportunité pour se rapprocher de lui ou refuser afin de conserver son intégrité et son indépendance ?

Cette suite tant attendue, après l’intolérable suspens du tome 1, comblera les attentes de nos lectrices, avec des personnages plus complexes et des scènes toujours plus hot.

Avis : J’avais vraiment adoré le premier tome de la série et au vu du cliffy à la fin de l’histoire, j’étais vraiment impatiente de lire ce second roman. Plein de questions nous tournent en tête : Malcolm va-t-il lui pardonner ? Va-t-elle réussir à le conquérir ? Est-ce que sa lettre aura suffi ? Mais voilà, quand elle se présente dans son bureau après la débâcle, la dernière chose à laquelle elle se serait attendue, c’est à une proposition de poste… Non, ce n’était vraiment pas ce qu’elle attendait.

C’est vrai qu’on comprend parfaitement les deux parties. Rachel est en faute pour ne pas lui avoir révélé la vérité et elle subit maintenant toutes les conséquences. Pourtant, elle sait qu’elle ne peut pas vivre sans Saint, qu’il lui est devenu essentiel et elle est prête à tout pour se faire pardonner, s’il veut encore d’elle. Ça fait vraiment mal au cœur de voir l’état dans lequel notre héroïne se trouve. Voir qu’elle est possiblement une parmi tant d’autres à présent.

Saint lui est méfiant, on sent parfaitement qu’il a été blessé, pourtant c’est difficile de dire ce qu’il désire réellement. Non, vous voyez il n’a pas perdu de son mystère ! Ils vont ainsi se retrouver petit à petit. Ce ne sera pas si simple, mais Rachel va tout faire pour que cela marche.

C’était à nouveau un très bon tome et cette fois ci pas de cliffy ! Ouiiii ! Mais j’avoue que je suis quand même très curieuse de lire ce troisième roman ! Une très jolie surprise encore.


Manwhore by Katy Evans

Manwhore, Book 1

Synopsis: 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?

Review: I heard many times about Katy Evans’ novels, but it is true that this is the first time that I try one of her books. I did not know what to expect when I started the story but finally I had a great time!

Rachel is a journalist and has been working in the same company since graduating, but now the newspaper is dying and the only solution to relaunch sales seems to turn to the most prominent man in town: Malcolm Saint. But to make a feature article, Rachel will really have to get involved, especially when we know that this man does not accept interviews easily.

I loved the interactions between the two characters. Rachel never really knows how to behave and easily loses her means. It was very touching to see her wondering about the merits of her actions, to see her reflect on how she should act. It was also very touching to see her gradually fall under the charm of Saint, while keeping in mind that it is a monumental error. Yet, despite hersef, the nets close on her and her choices will become more and more difficult. Saint is a very complex man, he does not open easily to others and it is also why it is very difficult to know what he wants exactly. Of course, he’s used to have everything he wants but he’s going to change at Rachel’s touch. I appreciated the fact that he does not act abruptly, he does not take advantage of the situation but that he is waiting while trying to charm her.

It was a really nice reading and I confess that I did not see the end coming at the time. What if I told you that the novel ends up on a cliffhanger? Aaaaah I want the sequel right now! Just two more pages at least! I want to know! In short I think I’ll have to wait.
