SynopsisWhen Miss Man-Eater… Raquel Adams is in desperate need of a media makeover. Her already floundering reputation is made worse by her recent antics, and she doesn’t seem to care. Raquel lives life on her own terms and doesn’t answer to anyone, least of all Clayton Cox, the guy charged with making her a media darling. His take charge attitude is a problem for strong-willed Raquel, but she can’t deny the attraction she feels toward him. Meets America’s spin doctor… Clayton Cox is the boss, and damn good at his job. He’s hired to improve your reputation and does so by swooping in, saving the day, and moving onto the next one. But he can’t move one from his newest client. Raquel is maddening, and gorgeous enough to make him forget his rule of never getting involved with a client. But Clayton can’t forget what happened the last time he mixed business with pleasure. All’s fair in love and war. Raquel wants Clayton, and nothing is going to stand in her way, not even Clayton himself. He doesn’t know what hit him, and soon finds himself juggling between having to improve her reputation and feign off her advances. But Clayton’s determined to show Raquel who’s in charge at any cost, even if that means thwarting her seduction efforts. Will Miss Man-Eater change or ways? Or will Clayton become the latest victim entangled in her web?
✯✯4 Man-Eating Stars!!✯✯
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 not help her reputation. Guys use her to get what they want. But, when Raquel doesn't give them what they want they trash her publicly. Then, you have her short temper and loud mouth. Now her job is at risk.
Raquel is sent to Clayton. He can turn around any actress or actor reputation completely. He knew of Raquel. But, he wasn't prepared for the real Raquel. ESP when she sets her eyes on him. Clayton was attracted to Raquel was instantly as she was to him. The problem is that Clayton got burned a while back from a client turned girlfriend. He has sworn off dating clients.
To help Raquel turn around her image he wants to set her up with his best friend/business partner Spencer. Except it backfires in the public. Now Clayton agrees to date Raquel in the public. Help her image. Even thought it def helps her image drastically. It hurts them both emotionally. Raquel wants Clayton and bad. She's also scared because she's not the girl everybody thinks she is. Clayton wants Raquel but he got so burned he is so confused. He's running hot & cold.
This was a quick read. And, it was really nice to see everybody from the previous book. I really loved Raquel's younger sister Ainsley. I am glad her and Spencer are getting their own book. They totally deserve it. I am disappointed that I've anything about the third misses book. Clara is the last we've read about. I hope she's getting her own book. ESP since she is the 3rd misses in the series. Other then that this book was really cute, man was it hot. I'm looking forward to what's next.

ExcerptShe played with their combined fingers. “And what about us?” “What about us?” He feigned ignorance. “Well, what the hell was that when we first came in here? Because at first you barely acknowledged me, and then poof, my nipple’s in your mouth.” He let go of her hand, rubbing it down his face. “Yeah, about that…” “Don’t you dare apologize!” she squealed, poking him with her finger, sounding like a shrew. He grabbed her finger. “I wasn’t going to apologize. I was going to tell you I don’t know what that was. It was like I couldn’t be around you all night without touching you.” The grin spread slowly, giddy excitement spreading throughout her. “Seriously?” He sat up and faced her so they were eye to eye. “I’ve never been more serious.” Raquel wanted to believe him, to attack him until he couldn’t see straight, but there were too many doubts that continued to swirl through her head while she tried to process everything he’d said. “What about your rule ’no dating clients’ rule?” He swallowed hard. “Let’s just say I’m going to have to trust you’re not playing me for a fool.” “I’m not.” She held up two fingers. “Scout’s honor.” He grabbed her hand, pulling her against him. He leaned down, kissing her lightly. “You were never a scout.” She put her hand on his face. “Hell, no, but you like me a little bad.”
