Overview

MAINTENANCE MAN II: MONEY, POLITICS & SEX...EVERYONE HAS A PRICE.

In “Maintenance Man II: Money, Politics and Sex…Everyone Has A Price” Baisden builds upon the saga of his former main character, Malcolm Tremell, a gigolo who first came to life in Baisden’s 1999 release “The Maintenance Man.” “The Maintenance Man” saw the author gain notoriety for unapologetically disclosing the lifestyle of a man who rendezvoused for pay with married women. The original “Maintenance Man” followed a litany of releases, including “Never Satisfied: How and Why Men Cheat,” and “Men Cry in the Dark” and solidified his stance as one of the most successful self-published male authors on the literary scene.

With “Maintenance Man II,” Baisden broadens the storyline as Tremell comes out of retirement to not only rebuild his contact list of high-end female clientele, but also franchise a male escort service worldwide. Intrigue, drama and danger quickly come into play when Tremell liaisons with the wife of a powerful and corrupt Republican senator. When they unwittingly uncover the senator’s underhanded deal with the powerful Kross brothers for political control, Tremell will have to tap his military training and street smarts to not only save his life, but also those closest to him.

Baisden, once again educates as he entertains, brilliantly engaging his readers. Utilizing Malcolm Tremell as the ultimate Renaissance man protagonist, he brazenly unveils several harsh and dark realities behind the current political process. He skillfully touches on some of the most critical political issues to date, including voter suppression as well as corporate greed, seamlessly interspersing them between a romantic and politically charged plot. The novel’s tone is captivating and inviting, whisking the reader into a non-stop escapade of sex, action and adventure.

After years of being out of the gigolo lifestyle, Malcolm has to rebuild his list of contacts and high-end clientele. But he still has his good looks, his Rolodex, and his reputation. This time he vows that nothing will stand in his way of getting back on top and creating a franchise of escort services worldwide. He disguises his gigolo lifestyle as a nightclub owner in Miami—the perfect cover to mix business with pleasure.

But with high rewards come high risks. Malcolm’s world is turned upside down when he begins a relationship with Alex Nelson, the wife of a powerful and corrupt U.S. Senator. When Alex and Malcolm are suspected of knowing too much about an unscrupulous billion-dollar deal they suddenly becomes targets. He will need all of his military training and street smarts to get his life back and to get revenge!

    I loved The Maintenance Man I but Michael Baisden has really out

    I loved The Maintenance Man I but Michael Baisden has really outdone himself with part II! Malcolm has evolved into a sexy sophisticated man. The book reads like a movie and visions of Idris Elba as Malcolm kept coming to mind with Kevin Hart as his side kick Simon. It was exciting after so many years to see what happened with Malcolm and Toni and some of the characters from part one, but I won't spoil it I'll just say this book is HOT! If you loved part I as a book or a play you will love part II as a movie! Both men and women will love this book! if you have not read part one - read it too!

    Could NOT put it down!! HOT Read!!

    Can't believe I'm the first to write a review!!! The story line sucked me in from the first few pages! I always wondered what Malcolm would have been up to after the fact and it's definitely much more of a sexy story than I would have imagined. I love how he portrayed Toni and brought everything back to life since MM I. I highly recommend this as a read - but make sure you have a couple hours because it's one you will NOT want to put down!!!

    complete waist of time

    I'm a fan of MB, but this was a complete waist of time. It wasn't half as good as the first book. Maybe MB was too busy with his many other projects to produce a good part 2. The combination of gigolos taking over the world, politics and navy seal crap was extremely unrealistic and juvenile. As if it was a young boys sketchy underdeveloped w_ t dream. Maybe it's time for MB to put down the pen. Obviously he cannot put a 100% into his novels. I commend him on his other projects but it's has taken away from what I originally came to like about him, which was his books. I recommend " god's gift to women ".

    Poorly written....

    Very corny story line and poorly written but considering that it was written by Michael Baisden I'm not surprised. Don't waste your time or your money! Save yourself the disappointment!

    Not as good as the first book

    It was not as good as the first novel. If you are into a navy seal/prostitute fighting crooked mob guys and selling himself for thousands of dollars to rich women, then this is your book. I recommend picking up The Family Business by Carl Weber.

    Loved it!!!!!

    This was the first book in two years that I have had a chance to read for pleasure that was not a textbook required reading for school. I finished it in less than two days. It was wonderful. Working on my degree I rarely have time to just read, but this book was a welcome break from my routine. A must read.

    more from this reviewer

    Maintenance Man part 2 was not what I was expecting from Mr. Bai

    Maintenance Man part 2 was not what I was expecting from Mr. Baiden's writing was not the story I was looking for. Usually I love Michael Baisden's stories but for some reason I just did not enjoy this book as much. It was wonderfully written but it don't have that flare of humor and love scenes that his writing usually has. This story was more political. Never the less it was fast pace and short chapter which loved. Very diffrent from Maintenance Man part 1.”

    MMII

    Mike has done it again. MMII was great, it was a page turner from begnning to end. Such great details that I was able to invision the scenes and really feel as if I was watching a movie. Truly a great book and a page turner, I couldn't even put the book down until it was completed!
