The name may have changed, buManwhore has proven quite the disappointment. Just another uber-rich boy playing the "I want it" game with a common girl.
The name may have changed, but Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint, touted as playboy extraordinaire; able to have whatever or whomever he wishes with a mere look; reads all Christian Gray. All of his bad boy ways gone and forgotten with one look at Rachel.
The girl destined to get closer to him than any other. The girl who has the power to reveal the truth about the legend of MANWHORE.
Ok...ok...all drama aside. This is a sweet book, but too close to the 50 Shades plot-line for its own good. Minus the kink that is.
The best part of the story is the "will she or won't she" of the big reveal that Rachel is supposed to do to save her future.
Unfortunately, there just isn't that much to say about this one. A way to pass the time. Something to do. Good for the airport. Slightly better than watching paint dry....more
The chemistry between Melinda and Hayden casts it's wonderfully warm glow over every scene that these two share. The story is made however, by the facThe chemistry between Melinda and Hayden casts it's wonderfully warm glow over every scene that these two share. The story is made however, by the fact that there are always circumstances, both of the tangible and theoretical variety, which seem to pose a threat to the happiness that waits for these two just on the herizon.
Try as one might, it becomes utterly impossible to dislike the character of Hayden. Though sustained loathing for her leading man doesn't seem to be a problem for leading lady Melinda, in the least. At least not at first. Because readers are let in on Hayden's secret were-identity long before Melinda, we come to see the complete picture of his seemingly charmed life. We come to see him as a loving, generous, and much maligned man.
Among the 99 problems faced by our beleaguered hero are: His fight to claim Alpha position in his pack unchallenged. The threat of a rogue wolf. His struggle to love Melina and keep her safe.
Melinda is the perfect blend of beauty, brains, and no-nonsense charm. She proves time and time again that she is more than a match for anything that Hayden and his supernatural world can dish out.
This is a very light and fluffy mid-paced paranormal romance. Though most of the read is concerned with life between these two as humans, the story seems to come together as things between these two get wolfie.
The Werewolf Wears Prada is a wonderful series first. It is the sincerest hope of this reviewer, that we will see more furry, romantic fun from this alpha couple in the future....more
There is so much to love about this story. First, and most importantly, is the fact that this is a full fledged tale. It is in fact, the opinion of thThere is so much to love about this story. First, and most importantly, is the fact that this is a full fledged tale. It is in fact, the opinion of this reviewer that the labeling of this work as a novella, serves as quite a misleading misnomer. What we have here is a highly complex and emotionally charged "awakening" story.
Readers will note that the term "awakening" in this case is used in the blanket sense. This is because our heroine is not the only person experiencing profound and life altering firsts. Both Gin and Atticus learn and grow through the intermingling of their lives, both sexually and not. In fact, it is the sexual play which allows both of these wounded souls to confront both past and present obstacles in their lives, with clear heads and unshakable fortitude.
It is very clear that authoress Sinclair has taken great pains to ensure that every aspect of her characters' lives are balanced. They have stressors, obligations, friends, etc., and these things make the time they spend together in play all the more of a treat. And by extension, all the more emotionally and erotically compelling to the reader. Miss Sinclare also shows herself to be a "mistress of mood". Using a combination of setting, and a cinematic descriptiveness, she is able to immerse her audience in the complete experience of each character, at any given time. Allowing her readers to not only champion a character for a time, but to becomes him/her.
The sensual scenes are a thing of beauty. Though readers are given to understand that Gin is novice sub, there is never a stiff or awkward moment, or a time where things feel forced. Instead, readers are allowed to experience the true dom/sub relationship as it is intended. That being one of the dom as caregiver and and the sub as cared for, always with an underpinning of mutual respect. It must also be mentioned that the dom/sub roles are never muddied. There may be times when Gin is allowed to "top from below", but her place as a sub and Atticus' place as master is never called in to question.
This is truly a story of love, sex, and learned self worth on the part of both hero and heroine. A story that begins with two people bound in play by a length of cord, but ends with two souls forever linked in love....more

For this assignment his name is Ben, for tThis read is the place where every great spy/assassin movie that one has ever watched meets well written YA. For this assignment his name is Ben, for the last, he was someone else, from somewhere else. Sent to do a job, complete his mission quickly and quietly and get out. Allen Zadoff does an excellent job of maintaining his agent's ambiguity by not giving proper names to his agency, The Program, or his handlers, Mother and Father.
Though Ben's role as an assassin is the plot twist that initially hooks the reader; it is Ben's inner struggle with his loneliness and questions about his past that serve to hold one for the long haul. On the surface, things seem very cut and dry, but the further beyond said surface you delve with Ben, the more you see the struggle to stay afloat beneath.
His assignment was supposed to be simple. Get close to his daughter...and kill the mayor of New York. A pice of cake. At least until he meets her. She is a girl after his own heart. The one that he could break all the rules for. The one he could tell the truth to. The one who makes him question everything. The one who could kill him. This is a read that keeps the reader guessing, never quite sure what's coming or what action will lead to what reaction, and from whom. The five day window for Ben's assignment sets a breakneck pace for this story, making each occurrence all the more important to the outcome of the saga. This rapid story pacing also gives the author license for a rather believable case of insta-love. The trick to enjoying this read. 1. Open book. 2. Clear your mind 3. Start to read 4. Hang on for the ride 5. Trust NO ONE ...more
