MANWHORE + 1 (Manwhore 2) by Katy Evans-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 7, 2015
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: MANWHORE +1 is the second installment in Katy Evans’s adult, contemporary Manwhore erotic, romance series focusing on billionaire businessman Malcolm Saint, and journalist Rachel Livingston. MANWHORE + 1 is the continuing story of Malcolm and Rachel, and therefore should not be read as a stand alone; Manwhore (book 1) ends on a cliffhanger; the fall out and reconciliation are addressed in Manwhore + 1.
Told from first person point of view (Rachel) MANWHORE +1 begins approximately four weeks following the final events of book 1 wherein Malcolm discovers that Rachel’s intentions to write a biographical storyline about him fell somewhere between a tell all expose and a paparazzi nightmare. Malcolm and Rachel’s relationship had grown personal, and in this, Malcolm believed Rachel’s betrayal was unforgivable and unprofessional-someone had leaked the intimate details of Malcolm’s life, and Rachel was Malcolm’s first source of betrayal.
MANWHORE +1 is a second chance storyline that follows the rebuilding on Malcolm and Rachel’s relationship. Malcolm offers Rachel a position within his company but has no intention of rekindling their affair. Rachel struggles with her attraction and need for Malcolm, and refuses his offer of friendship-only. What ensues is a storyline of attraction, need, and sexual seduction as Malcolm continues to fall for the woman who broke his heart.
Katy Evans has a distinctive style of writing; her characters are intense, colorful and oft times disillusioned with the world but her redundancy and continuous reminders about certain aspects of her characters can be distracting e.g. the color of Malcolm’s eyes (or Remy’s need to smell). Sometimes too many reminders become nothing but filler in the mind of the reader.
The $exual attraction between Malcolm and Rachel is intoxicating and all consuming. There is no denying that Malcolm is unable to stay angry at Rachel; his need and want of the journalist borders on obsessive-heightened by the awareness that Rachel feels that same way. Theirs is a profound, sexually aggressive, and impassioned love fueled by beauty and need. But saying that, a good portion of the storyline focuses on the $exual aspect of their relationship thus rendering very little angst or drama with the reconciliation of our couple. Malcolm was very quick to forgive and accept Rachel back into his life; his growing love for Rachel never waivered.
MANWHORE + 1 is a story of second chances; a tale of seduction, romance, $ex and love. The characters are intense, emotional and passionate; the romance highly $exual and erotic; the happily ever after not unexpected. Katy Evans will enchant with her storylines-there is always something fascinating about her characters and their lives.

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.

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.
