The Mister
The Mister | E L James
The passionate new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal #1 bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, hes never had to work and hes rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his familys noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. Its a role hes not prepared for and one that he struggles to face. But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman whos recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, shes an alluring mystery, and Maxims longing for her deepens into a passion that hes never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that hes been hiding secrets of his own? From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

50-2019 ⭐️⭐️
No this is not 50 Shades and no her writing has not improved. In short the Lord of the Manor who sticks his c##k in anything falls in love with his illegal immigrant virgin Albanian cleaner. I have read similar tropes written by other authors that did it much better. I gave it two stars as it wasn't complete rubbish and helped me switch my brain off when I couldn't sleep as you don't have to think when you read this.

If you‘re after a quick read that‘s not too taxing, this is perfect. There‘s no doubting who the author is, with its style mirroring the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but I was expecting that and wasn‘t disappointed. There‘s a fair amount of sex but the prevailing theme is a love story and if you‘re a sucker for a fairytale, this works really well.

❤️❤️❤️❤️

So what did you all think of this? Did anyone actually read this? This was loaned to me by the same coworker that loaned me The Chemist. I'll hardly every pass up a book. On one hand this was entertaining, but on the other hand the writing sucked. It made me cringe in parts due to the dialogue. I still refuse to read Fifty Shades...

Ok, I‘m diving in. I don‘t bail on books often, but my journey with the 50 Shades trilogy ended about 1/3 into book 2 with no desire to complete. But a decade has past and I‘m hopeful that all those books sales gave Ms James the time and inclination for some advanced writing seminars. ...Eeegads, so far, I‘m rather enjoying this - although this time I‘m going with the audiobook.

julesG It's been a decade since 50 Shades already? 2mo
marleed @julesG I just looked up the publishing date. Not quite a decade - 2011. What I remember was that HS kids the ages of mine were reading it. When I read Book 1, I had the realization that the view my kids had of their sexuality was vastly different than my mindset at their age. I was glad I read book 1 because it broadened my perspective. Odd to take parenting tips from there, I know!! (edited) 2mo
BooknerdsLife Hahaa hope it‘s better than 50Shades 😆🤞🏼 2mo
marleed @BooknerdsLife Well I haven‘t bailed and I‘m almost done (did have to speed up the audio) so there is that. It‘s a meh for me. I can‘t get past that the author has her female lead coming from a human trafficking situation. Its just unseemly knowing where she will take her characters and storylines. (edited) 2mo
BooknerdsLife @marleed OH Dear!!! 😂😂🙈 Don‘t think I‘ll be as brave as you to get through this “tough” read 😆👏🏼👏🏼 2mo

Read most of this from my spot on the deck. It was a very quick read but I enjoyed it. A lot of drama and a pretty predictable ending but it was a good book for cottage reading.

Pretty much what I expected - entertaining but not earth shattering. I'm not sure why so many people have their panties in a twist over it. Are there better romances out there? Obviously. But is it horrible? Definitely not. I actually thought it was WAY more romantic than Fifty Shades (not that that's a very high bar, lol). Just a bit too long and the end felt rushed.

(Also trying come to terms with tomorrow being my last day of vacation 😭)

I‘m hoping the author didn‘t mean to project the thought that shy, timid women are preferred to a woman who knows what she wants and isn‘t afraid to ask for it but that‘s the vibe I just got.

I know that this book has dismal reviews, but people also hated 50 Shades and I was entertained by that just fine (no, the writing wasn't great but I was entertained nonetheless). Anywho - The Mister is currently $2.99 on e-book formats in case anyone else (like me) is curious about it #ebookdeals

*Judgement free zone, please*

LibrarianJen I like your way of putting it. I too was “entertained” by 50 shades. 3mo

Nope nada. As soon as the main character sees his true love licking her lips and getting turned on, i knew it is going to be a rehash of Fifty Shades and im not going through 500 pages of that again.

Having read the Fifty Shades Trilogy, I was a little apprehensive about this book. I was hoping the author may have decided that this new book should head in a slightly different direction. I was pleasantly surprised by the emotions expressed by the characters. Indeed, E. L. James is a master of the depiction of physical intimacy, however, I still appreciated the non-physical aspects of this book just the same.

As a teenager I read most of the Mills & Boon / Harlequin romances in the local library, so I have a soft spot for instalove and millionaires. This book reminds of those books but with a lot more 🔥. This is not great literature or particularly imaginative but it met my expectations and was an enjoyable escape. This won‘t be to everyone ‘s taste #romantsy

It is what it is. If you‘re looking for literature, move along. 😜 If you‘re looking for a spicy, quick romance with little substance and lots of sex, then this is your book. 🤗 It‘s very sweet and predictable. Not as racy as Fifty Shades and consent is definitely emphasized.

CoverToCoverGirl Great review! 4mo

Well E L James is trying her hand in vanilla romance but sorry it's anther fanfic with another showcase of meh writing. This time it's Downton Abbey meets Pretty Woman with a English lord who falls for his illegal immigrant virginal maid who is escaping human traffickers and a violent arranged marriage. Somewhere there is serious social message but it's lost in bland storytelling.
