Womanizer by Katy Evans
Release Date: December 5th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
5 LIVE WITHOUT FEAR CROWNS
I have a special place in my heart for the Manwhore series. It is the first series I read by Katy Evans, and it made me fall in love with her writing. With each book in this series, I became more enamored with Saint, Tahoe, and now Callan. Who would ever though that Callan could live up to Tahoe, my favorite of the manwhores, but he absolutely did. From the very first pages of this book I was sucked in by the characters and the nontraditional take on the standard best-friend sister/office romance trope.
I love all things Callan Carmichael. He is absolutely everything that I love in a hero: sexy as heck, confident, caring, and loyal beyond belief. He never once tries to hide or keep his feelings in check once he commits to wanting Olivia. He craves her and goes after what he wants, like he does in his business. What I love most about him as a character is his pursuit of Olivia! In a traditional telling of this trope, Callan should be the one resisting, giving reasons they can’t be together, or asking to hide their many encounters, but he doesn’t. He is never once ashamed of them or feelings, and he doesn’t care about what others may think of their relationship. His complete commitment is refreshing in the world of unsure heroes. His dedication, his passion, and his desire to form a real relationship now that he has found someone to share his life with makes him a top contender in the book boyfriend world.
Just like Callan, Olivia is unlike most heroines. She wants to be with Callan, but allows several outside influences to distract her from what she wants, such as her scheduled timeline, not realizing that love will not dictated by age and plans. This focus on the scheduled timeline, though, will resonate with most young woman who are looking to make a name in the business world. Olivia is also resistant because of who Callan has been in the past, and she is looking to protect her heart, which, yet again, makes her real and her motivation behind her resistance understandable. Her fear of being hurt keeps her guarded, but when she finally drops that shield, she reaps the rewards of everything this man has to offer her.
These two together are A-freaking-MAZING. Their chemistry, the easy banter, the sexual tension makes this story a page turner. Watching them come together and fall together exhibits the power of love. Love cannot be pushed back for timing. Love cannot be ignored because of obligations to others. Love can be life-altering, changing even the basic makeup of who we are as people. There are also so many aspects to this story that will draw a reader in and keep them entertained. The forbidden aspect of their relationship, the resistance of succumbing to a manwhore, the continued pursuit from Callan for a woman who has finally sparked something in him all comes together for a story that will keep readers enthralled in a romance submerged in lust and passion.
Womanizer encapsulates everything I love about the Manwhore series. A hero that will conquer readers’ hearts, a heroine to admire, and enough chemistry to set readers’ worlds on fire! Womanizer is all of these things and more with its underlying themes of living life to the fullest and without fear! Katy Evans truly has another smash hit on her hands, so here is to more Manwhores and their demise at the hands of the woman they love.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full length 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.
