The Mister Book Summary

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.

The Mister - E L James Book Reviews

  • Amazing!! (AudreyMilstead)

    Love this read there better be a sequel I need more answers!!
  • Letdown.... (Hardcore Book Lover)

    I was so excited to read another book from her, just to be let down! Story was cheesy and boring. I’m a person who has to finish a book especially when I’ve paid for it, but this one was hard to finish! Honestly it sucked! Beyond disappointed...
  • The Mister (ChristaCruz)

    Such a beautiful book with a thrilling storyline BUT THE ENDING!!! It just stopped and I have so many questions! 😢 but it was wonderful overall ❤️
  • Worst book I’ve ever read (Prettyinpink2727)

    I got through 250 pages of this book and it was painful. It is so horribly written I think it may have been published before someone had a chance to edit or proof it. The characters and plot lacked depth and the story itself wasn’t engaging. I was excited to see another book by E.L. James but this one was a complete disappointment. Read at your own risk.
  • So good! (Jessica_Quinn10)

    I was not sure how I would like this after reading reviews but it was so good! Very different from 50 shades. Classic romance novel but I really enjoyed the characters.
  • Mehhhh (Sturzl2013)

    It started off really slow it got a little better towards the end but it doesn’t compare to her other novels. I wasn’t impressed.
  • Not her best work! (CrisKC0514)

    I was highly disappointed with this one. I was so excited she wrote another book and I really did eventually fall in love with the characters, but it took a while and it was hard to follow....... and the biggest disappointment was the ending .... I mean did she just give up wanting write it? Or is there a 2nd book? I don’t get it?
  • Mistress (lachica79)

    Not what I expected
  • The Mister - Wonderful!!!!!! (ronniej928)

    What a book!! I couldn’t put it down!!! I laughed and I cried!! Alessia and Maxim, both have been through same horrific pain and somehow found each other. It’s just amazing how they got through it all. I love how Alessia found her confidence and how Maxim became a better person. I hope there is more to come of their story.
  • Review: The Mister (@LisaHines711)

    The Mister by E.L. James was awesome. The topic of this author and her books is very controversial. In my opinion, the controversy is ridiculous. If it wasn't for Fifty Shades and the rest I wouldn't be blogging about romance books, reading them anywhere near as much or reading such spicy awesomeness. So I thank you, E.L. James, for writing your fan-fic, for giving us Christian Grey and the red room, for opening the world of steamy romance up to indie authors and romance readers! That being said - this book is not anything like Fifty. Yes Maxim is rich and Alessia is not and he does swoop in but the similarities end there. Maxim is grieving the loss of his brother. But it is more than that. With his brothers passing, he, the "spare", is now the next Earl of Trevethick, a lifestyle and obligation he is NOT prepared for. When his new daily (cleaner) turns up he is entranced with her beauty and unsettled by it. When he overhears ehr playing complex compositions of Bach on his piano, he's beyond intrigued. Alessia escaped an arranged marriage in Albania only to wind up in an even worse situation. After making her way to her mother's best friends home in London she settles into a life of work. The highlight of her work days is at The Misters apartment. He has a piano and is often not home and Alessia treasures the times when she can play. Music lights up her soul. But when trouble finds her and comes knocking on The Misters door, she fears she will lose everything she has managed to carve away for herself. The audio is fabulously done for this book and was how I listened to the majority of it. The first person narrative of Maxim and the third person narrating of Alessia is different but also brings to attention the language barriers between these two characters. It took a little while for me to warm up to the story and get fully settled in but around the halfway mark I was addicted. I HAD to know what was going to happen, I just had to witness their growing relationship and the changes in Maxim. Loved it! Enjoy!

The Mister - E L James Book Reviews

  • Just another Captain save a broad book (Cskemp)

    This book was really just…OK. The characters were likable but the story didn’t really make you want to get to know them. If this book had a sequel I probably would not read it. I don’t have a desire to know these characters.
  • Painful (APBW)

    Save yourself. If you must read it, borrow it. Be prepared for both 1st person and 3rd person POV.
  • The Mister (LadyCapricorn09)

    I absolutely love this book and the love story told. I’m already eager for a part 2 of the book. It left me wanting more! E L James did a wonderful job yet again. I can’t wait to see how everything comes together for Maxim and Alessia. So much I want to know, but I will patiently wait until the next part of the series becomes available. I know it won’t disappoint.
  • Terrible (Chikita_88)

    I first got into romance novels after 50 shades. I read that book more than 6 times. I’ve read so many books after that that are way better. I was so disappointed with the moves i swear off this author. I gave This book a change because I got it for free. I flipped thru so many pages because the book was so boring and dragging complete waste of a week of my life. UGH
  • Why (I Read Alot!)

    This book uses the same words, phrases and descriptions as Fifty Shades. I blame the editor and publisher for allowing this book to go to print. E.L. writers block is real, please put down your pen until you think of something new and use a thesaurus.
  • What is this....Really E.L James??! (More waiting!!)

    I am flabbergasted this is the same author as 50 Shades! The plot is so....ugh blah. I skimmed after a while because the book did not hold my attention. He is a spoiled, rich little boy who resents his dead brother because now he has to work ?!! Honestly he is as unattractive and unappealing and Alessia deserves better. So disappointing.
  • Yay! (smcbride0613)

    Another fun easy read from E L James! Was a quick fun read, and I look forward to the sequel!!
  • O.k. Entertaining but underdeveloped. (Bhrd83)

    Good story but I feel a lot was missing. I didn’t appreciate the similarities between these characters and the ones in her other books.
  • Awful (DoctorSoJo)

    I knew what I was getting into having read her work before, so this is not just a hit job on the book. This really is an awful book. The characters are flat and I honestly have no idea why they are together. It’s a boring read with no real story and the most abrupt, unsatisfying ending I’ve ever read. Don’t waste your money...even for curiosities sake.
  • Wasn’t sure at first (Crazyeditlady)

    Reading the other comments I agree it’s very slow at first... I almost thought about putting it down but before I knew it it sped up and started building.. getting interesting and then I loved it. I didn’t even realize I had read the whole book in one day finding I didn’t want to put it down and then it stayed in my head for days! Yes 50 shades was awesome.. I HOWEVER find it unfair to compare one series to a completely different book or possible series.. look at Beatrice Small my other favorite author.. does the same thing...the sign of one of the best writers is that when a series is ‘over’ and another book is wrote completely different story line.. completely different characters however the same author is revealed via it be names used.. context and understanding or just the I overall feeling you get in a book. I thought it was good and I have told others to read it tho I do warn people it’s slow but not to give up on it. Good job!

  • Do not waste your time (AshlynnM1)

    I’ve been trying to finish this book for over two weeks. It usually takes me two-three days to finish a book. It’s hard to read, boring story. I wish I had not was $13 on it.
  • Must Read (Aniyahjade1)

    Speaks to my inner fan girl
  • Great read! (Anci01)

    Finished this in 2 days! Really enjoyed it and I sure hope there is another book
  • Loved (Molly.o)

    Different from 50 shades and well written. I found it thrilling and easy to read and the romance between the characters is beautiful. I had trouble putting the book down.
  • Horrible book with no story (Gingy Cakes)

    This book was horrible. It’s a worse version of fifty shades of grey because a lot of things that happen in this book also happened in the fifty shades series. I bought this book to give it a chance, I pushed myself through the story and then gave it back to chapters and purchased my favourite half-night stand by Christina Lauren which I absolutely loved and highly recommend!! Don’t waste your money on the mister, it’s not worth it.
  • Love love love ! (20Su)

    How long are we waiting for the second book??? When is going to be publish?
  • Good but not great! (Taryndevil)

    Ended abruptly.
  • Reminds me of Fifty (Relish42)

    Reminds me of fifty shades. The main character has a lot in come with Christian Grey. The need to protect is a common theme in both books and with bother men. I really did enjoy the book, finished it in two days, really want to read the next book. I love a good love story.
  • LOVE (Not great. Just ok)

    Can’t wait for the second book!!!
