The passionate new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal #1 bestselling Fifty Shades TrilogyLondon, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one…

I'm an E.L.James' fan when I found out she was releasing a book I was pumped, cause for starters the title had gotten to me already.

About The Mister:

The author takes us to London specifically Chelsea, whereby we are given insights of Alessia and Maxim. The rich handsome Maxim has been brought up in a very unique household which he has recently inherited but, knows nothing about handling the family's wealth. All that changes when he meets and falls in love with a young lady who recently visited London. Its more of a forbidden love since Alessia is from a family or culture that's not evolved yet, in terms of marriage and what men prioritize.

From my perspective:

This book didn't do it for me, I was disappointed and no its not cause I was looking for fifty shades vibes, I was in want of a fast paced novel and The Mister wasn't. Let's start here:

  • Maxim to me wasn't portrayed like an alpha, things were just easy for him nothing major was in his way( and this made me miss Christian Grey, and Wolfe)
  • The story is unique definitely loved the story line, immigrant girl running from human traffickers and in the midst of the escape runs in to this handsome young man, loved! BUT not the most pleasant pacing. It was all over the place from one scene to another.
  • Character development wasn't impeccable, the fact that some characters are introduced to us by the time I get to the end of the book it has me like ''OOH wait, what happened to Maxim's sister? The lady who helped Alessia?''
  • Sex scenes were minimal thank God the writer didn't dwell on that for long. Thumbs up for that.
  • Albania, the way E.L.James writes about it,is it that bad? in 2019?

I expected more of James especially after her last books being phenomenal, lesson learnt don't expect kids, you'll be dismayed.
