Reading Manwhore is a must before you start this book and if you haven’t then why haven’t you? It’s a must read by Katy Evans. I have to say that I can’t remember the last time I was looking forward to a book as much as I was Manwhore +1. With the cliffhanger from the first book, I was impatiently waiting for the sequel to roll out and eagerly waiting to be sent a copy so that I could devour it. And devour it I did. I couldn’t put it down, but that can be said for all of Katy Evans’s books.
I’m not sure what I was expecting of this second book, I knew that Malcolm would be upset, but I was not expecting his icy stare when he and Rachel first met up again after the article was published. With every thought that Rachel had, I could feel the deep amount of sadness from her losing Malcolm. I was tearing up almost from the start hating how she didn’t know how to act and couldn’t say what she wanted to say when she was around Malcolm.
What Rachel and I were expecting was for her and Malcolm to talk about everything that went down with the article, not Saint offering her a job. Sadly Rachel realized that Malcolm was done with her. He had let her in when he had never let anyone in before, and she had lost his trust and hurt him deeply. Could she ever get him back? Would he ever trust her again?
Gone was the girl who never wanted a man in her life and was driven by career ambitions. Now Rachel only wanted Saint. He was her obsession and filled the hole in her heart. She couldn’t get enough of him and even if he wasn’t offering what she wanted. Him. She couldn’t help but accept any time that she could get with him. Rachel fought with herself on whether or not she should take Saint’s job offer. She didn’t want him to be her boss, but she couldn’t stand the thought of never seeing him again. She only wanted him. One thing she did know from her research was that Saint never got involved with his employees.
I felt that Rachel seemed more insecure with her relationship with Malcolm in the second book. Never knowing where she was at, and unable to express herself the way that she wanted. I wanted her to be able to tell him anything since this was her first experience at love and with a boyfriend. What she needed to realize was that Malcolm was a doer. He was a man of action and Rachel wanted his words. Of course, she did, who wouldn’t, but to be a writer and love words it was hard for her not to have what their relationship was clearly defined. She needed to take that step off the edge and let him catch her. Isn’t Malcolm Saint worth the leap? I know he is in my book. ????
I have to say that Katy Evans writes about Interface so well that half the time I believe it’s real and wondering why I’m not on it. LOL. She definitely seems to know her social media. ???? The only thing that I could possibly find wrong with this book is that there were a couple of times that I was unsure who was saying what and I’d have to reread what I just read to make sure I understood who was speaking. The rest was brilliant as she made me feel exactly what Rachel was feeling and yearning for a second chance with Malcolm.
As you know, I’m rarely happy with an epilogue. Why? Because I get so emotionally involved with the characters, I don’t want to let them go, and I want a long epilogue that gives the perfect future. Don’t we all, right? We’ll I won’t say that this had the perfect epilogue, but I was happy with it. Do you want to know what’s even better? There’s going to be a novella coming out October 5th that occurs after the events in Manwhore +1. What does that mean? It means that once again I will be eagerly awaiting for the next book in the Manwhore series to come out. Not because she left it with a cliffhanger, but because I can’t get enough of Malcolm and Rachel. That’s right ladies, no cliffhanger!
**I was given an arc for a fair and honest review. **
