I Kind of Loved It!
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 be friends with because she has no problems keeping you in line and telling you what is up.
As we get to know Raquel we get to see there is so much more to her than what we thought. She isn’t what her reputation is, and instead of fighting it, she just embraced it because it was easier. Now that everything is in shambles though, she needs the help of the Hollywood spin doctor Clayton Cox who Raquel seems to be at odds with at every twist and turn in this book. Maybe it’s because she’s insanely attracted to him, and yet annoyed by him at the same time.
Clayton has one rule, never get involved with his clients, but Raquel seems to push past all of his defenses and slowly worms her way in. Watching these two play their cat and mouse game is hilarious and fun. You know it’s going to happen, but all their banter back and forth and their fighting makes you know it’s going to all be worth it when they both finally give in.
These two are a match made in heaven, but reeling each other in is a different story. Even when they figure out that they can’t deny the thing between them anymore, Raquel still pushes Clayton’s buttons to get a rise out of him and he still tries to help tamper her and her reputation. Watching things go so well for them, you know the bottom is going to drop out from under them and when it does I was like NO! but thankfully Marie Garner didn’t make us suffer too bad before fixing it for us.
I adored watching these two fix each other and themselves in this book as well as getting to see more of Brea, Lance, and Clare, and getting to meet Ainsley, Spencer and Greg. I have come to adore these characters and their stories, and am looking forward into diving into Clare’s story next! If you’re wanting a sexy read with a lead female who doesn’t take any crap definitely pick up Miss Man-Eater today!
