The Mister: The #1 Sunday Times bestseller (Paperback)E. L. James (author)
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.

“Hope theres a 2nd book”
'The Mister' a beautiful 21st century love story and not what you would expect given the storyline and history of the characters Maxim and Alessia. I would not hesitate to read it again :)
“It could be worse”
I would not dismiss this book until you read it for yourself.
If you are expecting whips and other sex toys, like 50 Shades, you will be disappointed.
I did not dislike the book, there is obviously more to come. I... More
