Mogul by Katy Evans
Publication Date: May 31, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Mogul is steamy, like melt your kindle, steam rising from the screen sexy. However, the story stalls out from there.
The characters are very two dimensional outside of their lust for each other, making it hard to connect with them on an emotional level or even understand their desire to be more than an sexual conquest. What readers do learn about Ian will make them like him, and they will understand what motivates him. He is, however, quick to turn his anger and distrust around without really knowing Sara. I liked the heroine as well, with the exception of his derogatory terms regarding her sexual cravings. I cringed every single time she uttered or thought the word. Their chemistry in the bedroom is hot and is quite possibly the steamiest Katy Evans couple, but it ends there for me.
The plot is also underdeveloped. There are so many opportunities for real conflicts based on the characters past and present situations, and all of them were ignored or solved within pages. This couple didn’t face any real challenges, and at the end I felt ambivalent about whether or not they stayed together.
Mogul is a miss for me, but the syntax and diction, basically the quality of writing, is still there, and fans of Katy Evans will enjoy this heat inducing read.

He’s my most delicious secret.
The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening.
I didn’t know anything about him, not even his name.
Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked.
We met in room 301. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul.
The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him.
I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch.
I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I’d ever find him.
Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again.
He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table.
Because he has a secret. One that’s a deal breaker for me.
My Suit has a name.
And this is our story.

My eyes lock on a third figure sitting with them. As I near, the man glances my way before quickly shifting his gaze. I continue to stare at him as I approach, and it doesn’t take long for his gaze to return to me. His large figure rises to full height as he stands to greet me, and I feel a bolt of electricity hit me in the chest as familiar eyes stare back at me.
He’s tall. Dark-haired. Gorgeous. With deep, thick-lashed eyes you want to sink into. And lips to suck on like they’re all that exists between you and heaven. I stop walking, stop breathing, because . . . he is here.
A moment passes and Bryn seems to notice my shock.
But shock doesn’t come close to it.
Because never in my whole life has my heart leapt so far and fast. It feels as if it’s ripping out of my chest. I can barely force my legs to move for fear of hearing my knees knock together. I struggle for air, but it feels like someone cut off my windpipe connecting my nose and lungs.
He wears a white dress shirt and black slacks, and his face is chiseled and brooding. The real shock lies in the intensity brewing in his dark eyes as they stay locked on mine. My heart speeds up as I hold his gaze. The city bustles around us. Making eye contact is not something I do often, living in a city of millions, but I can’t take my eyes off him.
The memory of having him inside me returns with a vengeance.
Bryn begins to introduce us. “Um. Ian, this is—”
“Sara. We’ve met,” Hot and Dirty Workaholic interrupts with a stiff smile.
Our eyes meet, and for a moment it feels like nothing else exists.
His name is Ian.
Fucking Ian, with his serious, handsome face and shiny, black hair. He’s as lit as I remember. Straight out of a Suits episode, and I am dying.
