Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player—without getting played? The New York Times bestselling 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 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?
This is one of those instances where I loved the love interest better than the main character. There were times the story was dragging, but it definitely kept my interest.
Rachel and her friends are kind of annoying. Rachel has this almost little girl outlook on trying to get with Malcolm Saint. It was frustrating at times, but sweet at others. She’s an okay character. There isn’t much depth to her, and I wish there had been more. Now her friend Gina is vile!!!! I couldn’t stand her from the very beginning, and I still didn’t like her at the end of the book. She is supposed to be Rachel’s best friend, but she’s so shallow, rude, and sometimes mean that I immediately wrote her off. I have an idea of what BFF’s are supposed to be like, and Gina does not fit that bill.
I love Malcolm. I wish we had his perspective at times because he’s such a multi-dimensional character. He has had a constant struggle with his father, and I want inside this man’s head. I think he has so much more to offer to this story. He’s the one that captured my heart, and made me want to continue reading.
I will warn you now, there is a cliffhanger of massive proportions, and I NEED the second book now because of this.
