Synopsis new

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full standalone, and no other books in the series need to be read.

You’ve seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!

We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I’d go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.
Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn’t the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

my thoughts new

“Life sometimes doesn’t run in the cycles it’s expected to. We are all here for a blink. Life changes in a blink. We fall in love, sometimes, in a blink.”

Forever in love with Katy Evans’ books!

Callan and Olivia. Gaaah!!! I couldn’t even begin to describe the sexual tension and overflowing steamy scenes between these two. I was so rooting for them from start to finish.

Olivia “Livvy” Roth was introduced in the previous Manwhore book Ladies Man and we’ve known her as Tahoe’s little sister. When Tahoe endorsed her to his best friend’s huge company to work as an intern, Olivia expected to meet a ruthless business mogul in the name of Callan Carmichael. While working there, she had an encounter with a literally hot smoker guy whom she thought as an ordinary employee (a mailman) and whom she shared smoking sessions every day and even had a one night stand with. Little did she know that the smoker guy was in fact, the very owner of the company– Callan.

The book was basically steeped in steamy scenes after steamy scenes. Classic Katy Evans. Aaand I loved every bit of it. Callan and Olivia’s chemistry was off the charts. They’re both hot, success-driven, and they both understand each other’s wants. To simply put, they’re made for each other.

I loved that their story was not heavy on the angst and how the scenes were created to make the reader smile and swoon. It basically kept me on my toes. If you are looking for an office romance with over-the-top sensual scenes with less dramas, I believe you will love this book. You don’t have to read the previous books in this series (although I recommend you to read them too because they are equally amazing!) because it is a standalone. All in all, Womanizer was another enjoyable book to devour. I’m excited about Wynn’s story!

Synopsis new

TAHOE ROTH.
Irreverent, cocky, playful and naughty.
He’s not the guy you date.
He’s the one night stand.
The one your mother warned you about.
The one your body craves.

You’d think the man who called me succulent would want to strip me down and spread me out on his bed—like he’s done with countless others.
But he passed on my offer….
Just like I’d once passed on his.
He’s wary, like I am.
He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends.
So I distract myself with other men.
He doesn’t think my new man is good enough. This blond blue-eyed beast doesn’t think any man is—himself included.
But the more time we spend together, the more confused I feel.
I’m trying to open myself to love.
Yet I’m quickly realizing that the only man I want is Tahoe Roth.
The one man who will surely break my heart.

my thoughts new

“You’re like an insistent little trickle of water, soaking into every inch of my life.”

(I buddyread this book with my lovely sis Bea. Click her name to read her awesome review!)

I loved this book so much and right now I couldn’t even begin to form coherent thoughts. TAHOE ROTH. This guy. This sexy ladies’ man just got me with his “You’ve checked me so hard” line!

We’ve met Tahoe Roth and Gina Wylde in the first books of Manwhore series. Since Manwhore, Tahoe already hooked me because he was described as a sexy and cool rich playboy with a cocky grin and let me tell you, those qualities are my weakness, no matter how cliché they seem to be. I didn’t quite like Gina in the previous books, though, but in this book, this girl totally got me. Her character improved so well!

“But what is true for Tahoe Roth? He is the embodiment of sex. He also has a gentleman ingrained in his bones due to his southern upbringing. You can tell a lot about person by how they treat others, and he is playful but honest, and always himself.”

These two have this typical friends-to-lovers story that I found really sweet. To be honest, I didn’t quite like the prolonged sexual tension between them as the story progressed simply because of the way they continued to resist each other and hang the readers in the air. All throughout the 3/4 part of the book, I kept saying “Oh, c’mon, get it together already!”. My patience was really tested here lol and you can’t blame me because the chemistry of these characters are so evident you can’t help but root for them! But I was completely glad that the story picked up in the later chapters and finally made everything up! It was totally worth it, after all.

“I want to take off your lipstick so all you have is my mouth on you.”

The romance in this book was undeniably hot, passionate, and somewhat bittersweet. Just when I thought that everything was light, I realized that there were some parts that were a bit heavy and dramatic, too, like Tahoe’s painful past which was revealed in an unexpected way. I think that part was the main reason why I understood this casanova better.

“Love has no conscience. It doesn’t know right or wrong. It’s a feeling you can’t shake that penetrates your soul, and it cannot be broken.”

All in all, I did enjoy and swoon over this book. I guess the list of songs in the playlist which was mentioned also became an instrument for me to even love this book. Those songs were perfect! *sigh I NEED MORE BOOKS LIKE THIS!
