Rating : 4 Stars
This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Donât be fooled by that last name though. Thereâs nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, heâs a manâs man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention. Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life heâs 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 thatâs where I come in. Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, Iâm 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?
Review :I have read the Real series some time ago, so I got the chance to meet Remy before (if you haven’t met him ’til now, YOU SHOULD by the way). So when I saw that Katy Evans is going to publish a new book as a part of a series I really was thrilled (in German it is called “ganz aus dem HÃ¤uschen sein” which is what described my reaction even better).
And as the protagonist of the story seems to be affected by the German language, some German in this review is okay, I guess. 😉 From the Real series we know that music plays a really important role. So when the first thing I saw was a playlist my only thought was “this is going to be goooooooooooood”. It really was (even if the music doesn’t play an role as important as I expected it to play). With Sin (actually called Malcolm, but I can’t help myself), you are confronted with a new type of man you aren’t sure how to handle….
With Rachel he found his match as she has a very strong personality and is able to resist the man every woman seems to have fallen for. I like the fact that she really seems to be strong, but at some points I am asking myself: does her reaction really fit the situation? But then I am just like: thanks Katy for creating such a strong(at least on the outside) character.
The first 50% of the book were good, but there was just this special thing missing . You know, sparks?
But then suddenly that spark appeared, just that it wasn’t only a spark. It was more like a big hot fireball that changed the plot in a way I can’t really explain.
Until this point, I was so deep into the story that I celebrated my own “Katy Evans, you still can do this to me”-party. At this point I don’t want to say too much because of spoilers, but : THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING Malcolm, the saint…the sinner …. I marked so many passages while reading, but there are some which I still have in my mind:
“He’s not all saint, but he’s not all sinner.” My reaction after the ending (REALLY, NOW I AM SUPPOSED TO WAIT ‘TIL JULY?): “I’m a mess, Saint”, I choke out.
Oh yes, that what I am right now….
Cliffhanger : (KLICK to find out)!!!
HEA? : Series still continues
