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.
Clayton in Hollywood's best spin doctor and he needs all his talents to fix Raquel.
But it's not as easy as it could be - because both are extremely attracted to each other.
Can Clayton keep everything professional? Because a few years ago he didn't keep it professional and it blew up in his face....
What will happen to Raquel & Clayton?
Will the two of them get their HEA?
Will there be a horrible cliffhanger??
NOPE - I'm not telling you ☺
OK, no cliffhanger - but Raquel's sister will get her own book - so we'll probably meet everybody again ☺
I LOVED THE STORY!
I really liked the book. It was almost more of a novella than a full-length Romance. But it was cute. And sexy and adorable and frustrating and the guys...phew...Clayton - and his partner Spencer (who will be the star of the next novella - together with Raquel's sister!) HOT!!!!
Miss Man-Eater was a really cute Hollywood Romance.
We get to meet everybody from the first book again and we already meet the couple from the next book ...but that doesn't mean that Raquel and Clayton's story wasn't the main focus here.
They're really cute together - and it's really funny to see how hard Clayton tries to keep everything professional - but of course, in the end - he never stood a chance against this not-so-man-eating beauty.
Something I didn't like all that much - the cover? That's really not how I picture the sweet and sexy Raquel... it looks like the cover for a bad 1982 porn book ☺☺☺
►► MISS MAN-EATER was a really sexy Hollywood Romance with an amazingly hot Hero! And a not-quite-so-man-eating Heroine!
...and now I'm really looking forward to reading the next book in the series ☺
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, determined, stubborn, and a fighter, but she also has a vulnerable side that had me loving her and her becoming my favorite heroine in the series.
Clayton Cox. What can I say about Clayton Cox? He's kind of serious and broody and a jerk sometimes, but he's hot, so it works out for him. Clayton is definitely an alpha male; he's possessive, commanding, and very take charge. That's not to say that he can't be sweet and tender though. He was a great hero and while he might not be my favorite guy because Lance still is, I really loved him!
Miss Man-Eater will make your heart ache a little, but it's a pretty light read for the most part. It was funny, entertaining, and I loved, loved, loved the sexual tension between Clayton and Raquel! It was so HOT, especially when they were when they were driving each other crazy!
I was so glad to visit this little world that Ms. Garner has created again. I know I'm in for a good time and I just love the characters, the humor, and the heat. Miss Man-Eater was so wonderful and OH MY GOSH am I stoked but a little afraid to read the next couple of books because--WHOA--and the little synopsis for the novella that's going to be in series--well, my mind is just spinning!!!
Miss Man-Eater is a standalone, it's told from Clayton and Raquel's POV, and they do get their HEA. There is a cliffhanger, but it involves the other characters. It's going to be a crazy wait to see what happens next!

Raquel is also a star on the show Maggie Beach with Brea and Claire. Like Brea, she has a bit of a past that follows her around to this day. Her mother was an awful shrew that constantly put her down and as soon as her sister Ainsely was able to defend herself, Raquel was outta there. She makes it big on Maggie Beach and the rest is history. Because of her striking looks and the fact that every single date she goes on, real or not, makes it into the papers, Raquel is labeled the man-eater of the trio. Only her good friends know the truth, however the show wants her image cleaned up and hires Clayton the "spin doctor" to do just that.
Carrying around a past of his own, Clayton isn't the easiest guy for Raquel to get along with. Not real into the Hollywood type, Clayton treats Raquel like any other spoiled star, until he gets to know her better. Going against his rules, Clayton starts to fall for Raquel and hopes this time turns out better than the past.
The dynamic between Clayton and Raquel is great. Nothing like a little power struggle in life and in bed. The more we learn about each character, the more you see they are meant to be together, however it won't be easy unless they can each move on from the past.
Miss Man-Eater is a great addition to the Misses series and Marie Garner sets Ainsley up nicely. The book is well written as you get lots of angst and some steamy sex along the way. I'm ready for the next one!
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.
Marie Garner gave Raquel’s character depth and substance that ensured my investment in her happily ever after. Clayton’s no-bullshit attitude made him the perfect match for the feisty Raquel. They butted heads and verbally sparred, resulting in an intense friction between them that refused to go away. This story packed some serious heat and Marie Garner made sure her readers were feeling it. The evolution of their relationship was perfectly infuriating, unapologetic and steamy and I enjoyed every second of watching Clayton and Raquel reconcile their feelings.
The surprising part of this story for me was the secondary characters. I fell in love with Raquel’s sister, Ainsley and Clayton’s friend, Spencer. These two had a connection that really had me curious and they added another dimension to the story. Marie Garner’s writing continues to grow with each new project and I enjoyed getting to know another one of the Misses. I loved seeing more of Brea and I’m excited to see more of Raquel and Clayton in the future when they’re more settled. Full of unexpected connections and emotions, Miss Man-Eater was a quick read and a fun addition to this series!
