Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player - without getting played? The New York Times best-selling author of REAL brings you the first in a sexy new series.
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 lie. 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 would not recommend this book because it's a boring, disappointing cliffhanger. I'm returning this book post haste b/c I have no doubts that the ensuing books could have been combined too make 1good book.
This book could've been more enjoyable w/o the repetitive, predictable inter-monologue, sure to be found in book 2. Thus proving, cliffhanger unnecessary.
So I love a sexy funny romance as much as anyone- I am no snob and enjoy Dannika Dark, Christina Lauren, etc. I like fun and entertaining books while I am working out. So when I saw this book and how many amazing reviews it had, I had to buy it!
But I absolutely hated it and just returned it. The ENTIRE book plays out in Rachel's head, and what a tedious and boring place that is to be. Basically it is one long drawn out lusting-over-saint diatribe. There is nothing about Rachel - at all- that is likable. Good God girl, get it together.
Good books need action- tension- and a bit of brains to hold the whole thing together. This book was an absolutely painful gush fest over a hot and rich dude- told by a woman who calls herself a "slut" for masturbating! In a book called Manwhore! A woman who gets up to wash her hands afterwards. If it had been a physical book I would have thrown it across the room.
So basically the whole book is one long internal dialogue about a super hot guy, as told by a woman who seems to lack a few too many brain cells to care about. Even though I love my books guilty pleasures, this one was dull and excruciating.
Story is small and repetitive. Protagonist is unbelievable as a journalist and as a community volunteer. Unimaginative fabulously wealthy hero. Weak all over.
This maybe a good book, but I just could not complete it. The narrators voice is very distracting and borderline annoying!
Using a different narrator
I'm not sure, I will have to buy the actual book to finish
I am suffering. Each day when I look at my Audible screen and see that I have HOURS left of this dreadful work. I want to erase it from my library, but I have no credits right now, so I suffer. I keep hoping for some redemption, but I should know better, after all the BAD writing and copying from Shades of Grey. This is torture. I almost want to start a funding campaign to earn enough to buy myself some new credits so that the pain will end.
I'm sorry but I did not like the narrator one bit. She sounds like Hilary Swank whom I love but I don't want her reading to me. The book was sort of corny. It had a fifty shades of grey feel. And Rachel is possibly the weakest female character I ever read.
Interesting plot but the author failed to capitalize on so many areas which caused a boring experience.
The ending as it was extremely lame!! You call that a cliff hanger?? *Rolls Eyes*
Not really as she sounded like the robotic voice for a Kindle book.
I think it does need a follow up book in order to redeem itself.
Fifty Shades of Grey rip off
Trust me you're not missing a thing if you don't buy this book.
Nope, not from the author. The narration was fine.
I so wanted to like this book. I was looking for a light, fun vacation read. It just such drivel that it's intolerable. Seriously, how long am I supposed to listen to this girl debate about whether or not she should sleep with the guy and then beat herself up over it? Just awful. I guess I got what I deserved for getting a book with this name.
Katie Evans did it again. This was a great start to the series. As always she followed her trademark way of writing and kept my interest from start to finish.
Not once I felt bored listening to this book. It was so good I didn't want to be bothered while listening. This is one of those books you are dreading that it's going to end and you are going to be left wanting more and you although want to listen to the story you want to prolong it as much as possible.
If you are thinking should I buy this? Should I spend the money on this? Are you in between this and another title?Buy this book. You're not going to regret listening to this. If you have already bought Katie Evans books before you know what I'm talking about and if not then you are about to get a roller coaster of emotions. She has a way with words, she has a way of making you part of the story, and you forget where you are and the only thing you are interested in is to know what is going to happen next.
The narrator was so suitable for this book. Grace Grant is an amazing narrator, she has a beautiful voice, she brings a lot of emotions into her reading. She is captivating and she completes this book.
The only downsize of this book is the major cliffhanger at the end and the fact that the sequence is not yet out, it becomes very frustrating waiting. If you're not into unfinished stories I suggest you wait for the entire series to come out and then buy all of them together but by all means, this is a GREAT book!!!!
I can't believe I got this caught up with a chic lit slash erotica book! it is really good! I couldn't put it down!
God, I want desperately to know what happens next!
when does the sequel come out?
This book was really enjoyable to listen to, the narrator was excellent. Can't wait for the next book as this could get real angst between Malcolm and Rachael.
No storyline, no connection, no chemistry - narrator's version of Saint's voice is embarrassing. The narrator even pronounces the work urgh instead of making the sound, she says urg.
It's embarrassingly cringey for females - her thoughts are horribly self deprecating and implicate that women are obsessive and desperate when they like a guy, no empowering female intuition here.
"Outstanding new series"
Top marks Katy !! Engaging & smart storyline superb performance by grace grant as usual. Saint was simply delicious 😉 can't wait for book 2.
Holy moly. This is a reread for me, and I did it on audible! Wow. I don't remember the book being this good, I never even went on to read book 2, what was I thinking??? I have no idea, it was a long time ago, and I wasn't big on reviewing then. Anyway straight to my thoughts. Wow! Blank mind, so many feelings, so much angst. I just loved this book. I loved the writing (I would have loved dual POV, ooh to get into Saint's mindset). I loved Saint, he was just perfect and as such I struggled with Rachel and what she was doing to him. I know, I know, she redeems herself somewhat, and for that I am praying for a happy ending for these guys, luckily for me I've already purchased +1 so I'm not going to waste another minute mulling over what I've already read, I need to carry on reading, right now! Manwhore +1 here I come.
"Loved it !!!"
To be able to listen to it while I was flying. Made me relax I've read the book and loved it so I bought it on audio for traveling great way to relax so I got the series plus more 😁
All of it carn t pick a favourite part loved it from start to finish.
The title of this book might make you think it's cheap or tacky but it is not, but rather a throughly addictive and well written story. I'm interested to read the next book. With the cross fire and 50 Shades books the first book was definitely the best, I'll be interested to see if the same applies here. 😊
"An extremely boring read. I"
Based on other reviews, II also purchased the sequel to this book at the same time and it was marginally better but I think that the content of the story, taking in account all the repetitions, could easily have been condensed into one book.
Any Georgette Heyer book to calm me down!!
Grace Grant could recite the alphabet and I would be happy to listen. She is a great narrator, although I half expected her to drop off with boredom having to read the same thing over and over.
We read chick lit for the romance and a little tasteful erotica but every time the hero featured in this book you had to listen to a rundown on every aspect of how he looked and how gorgeous he was and this happened over and over again.
Enjoyed this story so much. Looking forward to part 2.
Gripping story with strong passion that kept me interested right through.
