Ends on a Cliffhanger

“You go out searching for something and come back with something else.”

THE STORY: Rachel Livingston is a magazine writer who is given the assignment to get close to the billionaire bachelor Malcolm Saint and write an expose about him. This is the break that she wants in her career, but it requires her to lie about her intentions. What Rachel doesn’t expect is the manwhore she expects is actually a decent person who she begins to care about. What will happen when her true motivations become known?

OPINION: I thought this story was intense and complicated with Rachel lying throughout the relationship with Malcolm. Rachel’s growth to where she can admit that she was in the wrong is an emphasis in the book. One weak point of the book was that because it was told in the first person, readers only get Rachel’s perspective. She apparently doesn’t see anything negative about Malcolm because he seems pretty perfect in the book. As a result, Rachel’s own actions in lying seem more unreasonable and unforgivable. This book ends on a cliffhanger and thus what might ultimately happen between these two characters when they have honesty between them is still unknown.

WORTH MENTIONING: This book ends on a cliffhanger. There is no resolution so readers should be prepared to buy the next book in the series.

FINAL DECISION: I liked this book more than I expected. I recognized that the story was not complete and would be continued in the other books in the series, otherwise I might have been seriously annoyed with the ending.

CONNECTED BOOKS: MANWHORE is the first book in the Manwhore series.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
