The Mister

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.

Amazing!5 star

This is an amazing book! I loved it! I really hope there’s second one ! 55


The Mister does not disappoint5 star

First off I knew this would not be another Fifty Shades of Grey book. As alway E.L. James does not disappoint. The plot and twists and love story of these characters was amazing. I highly recommend this book! 55


Boring and poorly written1 star

I really wanted to like this book. It was boring and very poorly written. It took me 2 weeks to get halfway through this book and I still hadn’t connected to the characters. There is so much description of the same thing. Changing from first person to third person narration just made it worse. I stopped reading it weeks ago. I paid good money for the book and feel like I should finish it, but I just don’t care to find out how the story ends. 15


The Mister4 star

I loved this book-just a simple love story-I loved both of the main characters very much 45


Realllyyyyy good book!5 star

Sweet, sexy, written pretty well....but definitely looking for a book 2 of Maxim and Alessia...💕 55


Do not waste your money!1 star

This was probably the worst book I have ever read. It took me a few days to even get in to it. Starts off very slow and doesn’t get interesting until halfway through. The ending is terrible. There is no epilogue. It just ends. I wanted to know how the marriage played out with his family and maybe see them with children a few years later. But we get nothing. 15


The mister...5 star

Amazing book, though I found some details very familiar to the “fifty shades” books I didn’t mind it because at the end of the day it is from the same author. I wish there was more to this story..... great great story. Loved it. 55

Very disappointed1 star

I was so excited to read the newest love story from E L James but this book was very difficult to get through, I didn't even bother with the last fifty pages. 15


Haphazard1 star

I was profoundly disappointed in this book. The characters were undeveloped, the story lines thin, the love story superficial, and the dialogue was flat. 15


Not all that great2 star

The story is boring. 25


Disappointment2 star

EL should have stopped with the Fifty Shades series... I struggled to finish the book. 25

Frustrating and crazy game

Disappointment2 star

After fifty shades this book is terrible and very disappointing. I was expecting something more interesting and captivating and got some lukewarm, a dime a dozen romance. 25


Disappointed2 star

The Mister is exceedingly disappointing and not anything like James’ previous books. The story is barely a “bodice ripper”. Save your money. 25


Loved it!5 star

Loved it! Read in 2 days. 55


The Mister5 star

Great storyline with a very slow start, however that is to be expected with all of this Authors books. I expected more hot steamy sex, I was surprised at the lack of detail ...I wonder if there will be a second book how the story ended. 55


The Mister1 star

Very slow. 15


Amazing5 star

Love This Love Story5 star

E L James has done it again. I was hooked within the first few chapters. I read the book in 4 days (would’ve been 2 if it was a weekend read). The characters are flawed, but lovely. Her words are so vivid and descriptive that I felt like I could see where the characters were at every turn. Will there be a follow-up book two? I sure hope so. Bravo. 55


Amazing!5 star

She did it again! This book was fantastic! Hopefully she makes a sequel! The love Maxim has for Alesia is pure and perfect! Will read again for sure! 55


Disappointed2 star

I’m such a huge fan of E.L Fifty Shades trilogy thus my reason for setting the bar so high for this book. I have to say I’m highly disappointed with this lackluster book! I’m actually having a hard time finishing the book but I know I will because of how much I paid for it. The characters are not relatable and I do find myself checking off similarities with FS in the dialogues. Storyline is just too outlandish and has no depth. No creativity at all. I give 2 stars because the cover is cute. 25
