about

The #1 New York Times bestseller—a thrilling new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy.

London, 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 that he struggles to face.
 
But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.  Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s 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 he’s 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.
E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fangirl. After twenty-five years of working in television, she decided to pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fif...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What did I just read? I read the reviews for this book before I considered reading it. As is indicative of many of the reviews listed here they were not good. However, I heard on a podcast that E. L. James wrote a book about a woman who had been sex trafficked. Having read her previous books I was intrigued to see how she navigated such a serious issue with her story-telling style. Obviously, I was not expecting Pulitzer level writing, but even my low expectations were not met. Throughout the book, the female protagonist is concerned that the women she was trafficked with did not escape, but she does nothing to determine what happened to them. Instead, she becomes involved with a rich man and the story ends completely ignoring that she has felt immense levels of guilt throughout the entire story. If you decide to read this book do not purchase it as it is not worth the money, but if you want a quick/easy read then check it out from the library.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Booooooring I've read 50 shades and although it was badly written... I could not put them down (also read the better written Crossfire series by Sylvia Day). I read in French and English, fiction, non-fiction (historical, travel, biographies, romance, motivation) you name it... As long as the book and or subject interests me... I read it! But this book was borring! I was wondering if Barbara Cartland was not her inspiration... The characters lack substance. That too bad. Had I read the book as an naive young adult. Maybe I would have liked it more. But not as a women in her late 40s. I actually had put the book down before finishing it... 2 weeks later!!!! Only in the last 2 chapters were interesting. Unfortunaltely looks like she's prepared sequels...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Bad Bad I am someone who always forces myself to finish a book but this one I had to put down and walk away from. So boring, so dull, the characters fall flat, the dialogue and writing is cringeworthy. Do not waste your money or your time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoyed it! Well, I guess I'm in the minority going by the other reviews so far of this book, but I didn't think it's nearly as bad as people are saying. People complained about Fifty Shades too though and that sold like crazy...Anyways, I thought it was an easy book to breeze through. Not an overly complicated plot line, but still enjoyable. Not nearly as many or as detailed hot and steamy scenes as Fifty Shades. The story reminded me more of a typical Harlequin style romance. Others saw the female lead as docile, which makes zero sense to me. The story literally pointed out many times how strong she was escaping from different horrible odds and fought against her cultures upbringing on how they treat women. Yes she's quiet. Yes she falls in love with her boss and requires his help. That doesn't make her submissive. I wish I could say more, but I can't without giving away spoilers. If you enjoy Harlequin romance novels and want something quick and easy to read. Give it a try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money. Honestly.. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! Its basically a story about a maid who cleans the guys’s house all day and she likes to play the piano. The foreign words like ZOT is annoying.. whoever did the editing did a really bad job, it has no story. Very dull.. i can’t even finish it lmao. Do urself a favour and buy another book, i’m very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Waste your $$$$$ This book is a MASSIVE let down. Why can't she write a book with a strong, confident female lead to better match the wit of the male?? Instead we are treated to a very meek female lead who becomes infactuated with her male boss, who in turn does the same with her. Honestly, so unrealistic. No proper plot development. I can't even finish the book. Trying to get to the half way point was tough. If you liked her other books don't buy this one as you will be VERY, VERY, VERY disappointed!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just keep on Walking ... I bought this book as I enjoyed her trilogy with the mystery element that was interwoven. Well, this book is a MASSIVE let down. The characters are horrid, the meek, defenseless female lead and the rich 'broken' male predictable and boring. I couldn't even enjoy the 'escape' that I have when I read such books and am unsure if I'll bother finishing it. If you liked the Fifty Shades books just keep on walking. This book has no led up, is anti-climatic, boring, and truly unrealistic! Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbelievable E.L James comes out with yet another book that has women stuck in the normative archaic gender binary of serving the man, and female character Alessia — lead male character Maxim’s latest target who “changes him for the better” in a cliché way that does NOT subvert the cliché trope — is again nothing but a caricature of that binary, representing James’ backward beliefs about what she thinks it means to be a woman: being imprisoned physically and emotionally. I have no other words to describe how awful this book was all around, and the Atlantic’s review (google E.L James the Mister review by the Atlantic) hammers down exactly what I thought while reading. James should never write another book ever again. She is an abomination in the female writing community.
