Raquel is one of the 3 actresses we already met in the previous book: Miss Congeniality.

She's - obviously - the Man-eater of the group. Only she isn't really. Ever since her mom flipped out on her for showing her boobs to a boy when she was 14, she stopped being that girl. She's only had sex twice. But she does nothing to stop all the rumors and the flirting and the being in the press. But her studio needs her reputation to be fixed asap. And that's how Clayton comes into the picture.

We met Rachel in Miss Congeniality as one of 3 young women and actors at the center of a young adult TV show, Maggies Place. Rachel is known as the bad-girl of Hollywood, used by men to gain notoriety and a name so they can further their career. Rachel though, is not what she seems and the saying “don’t believe everything you hear” could easily be applied to Rachel.

In Miss Man-eater, Rachel’s forced to work a PR hotshot in order to clean up her image. This is where the fun begins. See, Rachel is

I just finished Miss Man-Eater and I really enjoyed it! This is apart of a series with Miss Congeniality is the first but can be read as a stand alone. Raquel is known as Miss Man-Eater. She screws them and spits them out. Which is so far from the truth but her reputations is in tatters and Clayton is hired to clean her act up. What they don't expect is to have intense feelings for one another. Clayton will not ever date a client, he has a one bad experience but it was enough to say no. Raquel w ...more

This book was given to me for my honest review by the author

We have all heard the saying “Looks can be deceiving” at some point in our lives but really what does that mean to our everyday life? Does it mean that what we see is not really the truth? Does it mean that we can play dress up and pretend to be anyone that we so desire without hurt or complication? Does it mean that what lies truly within ourselves is not truly what we portray to the world as we know it? Does our truest of

☆☆☆☆ 4 ☆☆☆☆

The first time they met, they felt a spark neither one could ignore. But because Clayton past, he swore off dating clients….she brushed off what he felt and acted like a d*ck instead. But Raquel felt so much connection that she wasn’t letting go. From that day on she made it her goal to win his heart, if it’s the last thing she’ll do. As she says “GAME ON”.

The next weeks lots of flirting happened, gif

First of all, this is the second book in The Misses Trilogy but you definitely don’t need to read the first book to enjoy this one.
Miss Man-Eater starts with a prologue which provided the background that helped me understand Raquel, but I still found her difficult to understand. Clayton was also a bit of a mystery, but the questions that I was asking myself ensured that I kept reading this book as fast I could. I love a puzzle!
When Raquel and Clayton first meet, it’s for business reasons. Raque

this book was awesome it had a great story line, steamy, hot erotic scenes. Raquel is sweet lady who stays pretty much reserved, though she's whitty, funny and can be sassy she's afraid of being herself.
Clayton is hot, sexy and has had his heart broken. His trying to heal and by doing so he's decided to not trust so easily.
we have two very beautiful people who have very strong feelings for each other but afraid to leap.

DNF at 57%. Ugh. This book really wasn't for me. I couldn't stand the characters, it seemed too fast and sporadic. Maybe reading book #1 would have helped, but I think this is just not the series for me.

Miss Man-Eater as an enjoyable sweet and romantic story that told the story of one of the three Misses readers were introduced to in the first book of the series Miss Congeniality. I have been intrigued by the character since I first read about and found that I really enjoyed both of the main characters.

Raquel is so different form what I was expecting, as she is perceived as a Man eater that uses guys and spits them out. However, she wasn’t like hat at all and was a caring and loving character t

I received and voluntary reviewed this book. This book was read and reviewed by Stacy Aube for Cutting Muse Blog Review.

This story is about Raquel, the bad girl of Hollywood. Men use her to further their careers, even though all is not as it seems. They bring in Clayton to help clean up her image. Their chemistry is magic. Another great read, I need to read more.

I started this book, and could not put it down! Miss Man-Eater was absolutely amazing and had me finishing this book in one sitting!

Miss Man-Eater is Raquel Adam’s story. We met her in Brea’s book Miss Congeniality as part of the Three Misses, and she’s in desperate need of fixing her reputation so she can keep her job. If you’ve read Miss Congeniality, you know Raquel is the spit-fire of the group, the out spoken one, and the girl you all want to

I was so excited to read Miss Man-Eater because I absolutely loved the first book and Ms. Garner did not disappoint me! I loved this book! It was a fantastic, fast, fun and easy read! 

Raquel "Miss Man-Eater" Adams does not take crap from anybody. She's a blunt, in-your-face b*tch that you don't want to mess with. It sounds harsh, but she'd be the first one to admit what I said is true. There is much more to her than the tease-mean-girl-man-eater though. She's fiercely loyal and protective, deter

This is the second book in The Misses Trilogy and for me I liked it a little more then the first book. Why? Raquel and Clayton. These two were so different yet so perfect for each other. They healed each other from the people that damaged them.

We meet Raquel in the first book Miss Congeniality and learn real quick she's the load mouth and not afraid to fight. But, when we meet her now she's still this way. But, looks can be deceiving!! Being in the spotlight does

4.5 Stars: Miss Man-Eater has a very different vibe than the first book in the series. This book was Raquel’s from start to finish. Her story was every bit as spunky and honest as Raquel is. Marie Garner opened the story in a way that allowed an immediate connection to this character. I felt for her from the moment the book began and that feeling carried throughout the story. After Raquel’s Hollywood reputation leads her into the office of spin-doctor extraordinaire, Clayton, who isn’t the type ...more

Well, in Miss Congeniality Raquel was kind of the crazy one and in Miss Man-Eater we learn where that crazy actually comes from. The gang returns for Raquel's book which is something I love in a series. When we can keep up with everybody along the way. In the first book Marie Garner gives us a glimpse of the Raquel and Clayton situation, so you already know there's a bit of contention between the two.

Raquel is also a star on the show Maggie Beach with Brea and Claire. Like Brea, she has a bit o

Okay, so I am just gonna dive right in here. I initially chose to review this book because the synopsis said that is was Mafia, but it starts off MC and then it all just switches. It's not really either in my opinion. This book did not do if for me, nothing about it was a good read for me. I did not connect with the characters or the storyline at any point while reading.

Let me start by saying that this was the first book that I have read by Author Maria Garner. I enjoyed the story; thought it was a fun read although I did not connect with the main characters. This is the second in this trilogy but there was enough background that you did not need to read the first book.

Raquel Adams is a leading actress but with a sign around her neck that screens trouble for all men. But in reality that is farthest from the truth. She has allowed everyone to think that s

I liked this book but it didn't seem to flow well for me. It felt choppy and found myself going back to re-read parts because it would jump in time in the middle of chapters. The drama part seemed to fall flat for me. There needed to be more reaction or something. However, I did enjoy Raquel and Clayton's dynamic. Their banter was so funny and helped bring the rating up. It kept me turning pages to see what outrageous thing Raquel would do next. The surprise at the ending was the

Having read the first book in this series I couldn't wait for this one. I really liked Raquel's story and her journey to how she got the name Miss Man-Eater, I really liked the twist behind how she got it. So Clayton is sort after in Hollywood to make you look good and get your reputation back on track. Raquel needs him and the build up to their relationship is so funny. Enjoyed how Raquel pushed the boundaries of their relationship and Clayton. Now waiting for book 3!!

I received this for an honest review.. This is the second book in this series but both can be read as standalone s (THANK YOU). This was a nice fast hot read. It was a bit different than the first because Raquel is a little more edgy than Brea was in the first book. Which is a nice contrast. I absolutely love the relationship between these three women. I also really enjoyed the fiestiness of the relationship between Clayton and Raquel..

This is a good easy read that you will enjoy!!!

Clayton and Raquel's story was interesting. I loved that their story paralleled His father and mother’s story in a lot of ways. They had intense chemistry when Clayton wasn’t trying to play the cold shoulder. I really loved them as a couple. Miss Man-Eater is a win for me!

Less Miss Man-eater and more misstep.
Silly story that jumps all over the place making for a cliche filled romp that isn't quite over the top enough to be campy. The characters fell flat and the tension between Raquel and Clayton seemed to be missing.
