Synopsis from Goodreads:

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?
My Thoughts...
I am going to keep this review short because I am having computer issues today and I want to get this up before I lose it.  First I want to say that I loved this book!  I have read a handful of Katy Evans books and I really enjoyed a couple of the Remington Tate books, but I think this one was my favorite of all her books.  And if you have been reading this blog for any length of time you know how Gideon (Cross) is one of my favorite male leads, but I have to say that after reading this I have a new Gideon....Malcolm Saint is my new favorite book boyfriend!  My only complaint about this book is the title.  I just don't like it and it's not a book I would carry around with me, this is definitely a Kindle read for me.  Personally, I would have titled this book Sinner and the 2nd one Saint, but that's just me!

I am not going to talk about the plot too much, but I do want to talk about the characters.  Rachel is a strong female character.  She's a journalist who's determined to make something of herself working at a smallish magazine in Chicago.  She's just been given the story that could make her career and a name for the magazine if she can pull it off.  Rachel is given the assignment simply because she is single and that's what it's going to take to get close enough to Chicago's hottest bachelor to write the ultimate expose.  Malcolm Saint is the elusive bachelor she's assigned to.  HOT is the only way to describe him.  He's rich, successful, and hot as hell.  He's never with a woman more than a night or two and no one really knows anything about his personal life other than that he's a rich playboy.  He's never been known to have a relationship but when he meets Rachel this is exactly what's on his mind, but she's all about her story....for awhile.

I loved the character development in this book, I felt like I was just carried along with the story and I couldn't put it down.  I read it in just a couple of hours.  I warn you though, this is the first of a series so it's a cliffhanger ending.  Thankfully, we only have to wait until June for the next book.  I think this is going to be a really good series as long as she can keep it going at the level this first book is.  This is all told from Rachel's POV and while I would have liked a back and forth, I don't think this series needs to turn into one of those where we need his POV in another whole book, like with Remy.  I think when you start a book you need to determine who is going to tell the story and just stick with it throughout the series.  I think if she does this it will be fine!

If you like the Crossfire series then you will love this one.  If you are getting less enamored with the Crossfire series because of how long it's dragging out, then you will love this one!  If you like hot rich men then pick this book up, you won't be disappointed.  

XOXO, Shelly
