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?
It took me a few days to get my thoughts together because Katy is a cruel woman and ended on one hell of a cliff  hanger.  When I got to the end, I shouted "son of a bitch" my roommate thought I had hurt myself, you would think they would learn.

The characters developed in a wonderful way. They kept pace with the story and showed the human dynamic, and I loved the surprises from each of them.  Rachel's desire to become successful is what made her take up this story that will save her job and job of everyone else at the magazine that was going downhill fast.  Her desire lead her into meeting Malcolm, and then the adventure begins.

We have balls and parties and the rescuing of animals ( Yes sir, I loved that scene so much)

At first this book was a book I will admit to making fun of on goodreads.  The female character is a bit in her own head and never stops thinking abut how things affect her.  When they talked about her assignment I wanted to slap both of them but then again I'm one of those who hated the way Princess Di was treated and the way she died so I wasn't one to read those magazines or gossip sites

"Because being wealthy means he doesn't deserve any privacy"
6.0%"Boom just like that you have a leak. She's an idiot"
46.0%"I'm loving the story but not the female characters attitude towards sex and other women calling women whores b/c they like sex is stupid"
52.0%"Is Gina stupid?? Really just because one guy is an asshole, so that means your dad who you love so much is one too dumbass"
99.0%"Oh Katy you mother effing biotch. Why did you end this way. Oh gawd I hate you *sob*."

Then I got into the story because really her voice just pulls you in and feel the need to see the train wreck coming. And yes, the manwhore turns out to be so much better than she was giving him credit for.  I wanted to laugh so hard, like duh dummy, just because people write it doesn't mean it's real.   And just because there are rumors don't make them real either.  Malcolm was a lot more complex than others gave him for, he was a bit privileged and came from a wealthy family but he still had issues with his family, which the press was more than willing to talk about all the time and letting him know about all his failures from his teenage years.  

There are a few moments where I felt like kicking the female character in the throat, stop calling other women "whores, sluts, skanks, hoebags" to make yourself feel better, they aren't any different than you. They like him just like you do, and you don't think your a slut, so shut up.  I hate when authors fall back on that bullshyt not all women think like that so STOP.IT.

I did like that she had strong female friendships, and a good relationship with her mother.  However I think her mom romanticized her dad way too much, like way too much. I need Gina to take her head out her hindparts as well, just because Paul was scum doesn't make ALL men scum, so stop painting them all with the same brush.   If she whined one more time about having her heart broken I was going to push her off a cliff.  

As secondary characters go there were some really good ones, and you totally understood the motivations of most of them. I really enjoyed seeing as some of the characters where being revealed to us as they were being revealed to her.  I totally fell in love with these characters, the good the bad and the ugly of them, because lets be real they had a few ugly parts about them.

And for the first time in a while it's not the male character who has to do the apologizing & crawling back, because for the first time in a while it's not him who has been the asshole of the couple. I love it, I'm totally here for it!!  Rachel and Malcolm were really good together. You could see the development of the relationship through their texts, calls, and emails.  I liked that they were more than compatible and that the relationship develops slowly.

I still loved the book and I need the next one like asap.  I need to know what happens to Gina and to our main couple, because seriously what the heck was wrong with her??!!  
I hope you fall in love with Malcolm the way I did and Happy Reading
