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.

Book Review: 5 Stars

five-stars

This is book #4 in the MANWH*RE series and is a spinoff, but can be read as a complete stand-alone. The story revolves around Livvy Roth (Tahoe’s younger sister) and Callan Carmichael (Tahoe’s friend).

At age twenty-two, Olivia “Livvy” Roth wants to be independent. She has plans and ambitions and those plans start now. Thanks to her brother, Tahoe, for the next three months she’ll be interning at Carma, Inc. for one of his best friends, Callan Carmichael. “My brother may have gotten this job for me, but I’m going to be the one who keeps it and climbs the ranks on my own. No favors from anyone anymore.” –Livvy. Her ambitions have overshadowed any thoughts of men (for now). In her plans, she won’t meet Mr.Right until she’s twenty-eight, AFTER she’s established a career for herself. But plans can get derailed. Her carefully constructed plans get momentarily sidetracked when one evening, after a terrible first day at her internship, she takes a trip up to the terrace and meet’s “Hot Smoker Guy”. This guy makes her question all her plans and for the first time, has her every thought and decision based on him. The only issue is she finds out “Hot Smoker Guy” is her boss AND her brother’s best friend.

Callan “womanizer” Carmichael is the “last man standing” in his trio of friends and a testament to singleness. CEO and owner of Carma, Inc, he’s established a successful life for himself. He knows how to control board rooms and specializes in investments and takeovers. He’s achieved such success because when he sets his sights on something he wants, he takes it. Business wise and woman wise. So when he gets his sights set on a beautiful, freckle-faced intern, he’s unable to resist. He is consumed with thoughts of her and only her. The only issue is, this new intern of his is also one of his best friends little sisters.

Callan knows that he is breaking rules when it comes to Livvy. Your best friends little sister is definitely a “no go”, but he can’t seem to resist. Livvy has always been told that Tahoe’s friends are off limits and up until this point, it wasn’t an issue, but it’s hard to resist when she didn’t know to begin with. Livvy finds herself falling for Callan’s silly antics and Callan finds himself falling for her realism. As they get to know each other more and more, they find themselves unable to deny the pull they have toward each other. Now they have to navigate this “affair” and figure out ways to either resist each other or get away with not resisting each other. After all, Livvy will only be in Chicago for three months, what could it hurt to be together for just now?

I absolutely ADORED this book! From beginning to end. I fell in love with these characters with every shared encounter. Katy Evans worked the smoldering stranger’s aspect to forbidden element perfectly with these two. The way that the reader gets to see a different side of Callan through Livvy’s eyes was beautiful. Livvy had no idea who he was and because of that their relationship was able to build and mature on a different level. Livvy didn’t have all these preconceived ideas of who he was, she went into their relationship with a blank slate and because of that Callan was able to do what he thought he was incapable of doing, loving someone. “I don’t know that I can love someone that deeply. I’m not built that way.” –Callan. Oh Callan, you are indeed capable. *swoon*. Callan was also exactly what Livvy needed. She had all these plans in life: work for a couple years after her internship, go off on her own and start her business, meet her husband at 28, and have kids. She needed someone like Callan to scramble up her plans a little. He pushes her and brings out her competitive side, but he also scares her. She’s scared to deviate from her plans and take the leap. He is the notorious womanizer for a reason. Whose saying she can tame him? But thanks to her nana, she learns this: “A life of fears is no life. Live it fully, my Livvy.” Livvy had to learn to just take the jump. In the end, fears can hold you back from something wonderful.

I always feel like I can’t properly put into words how I feel after reading Katy Evans’ novels. I find myself with a constant silly grin on my face while reading them and a stomach full of happy butterflies. I can always count on her stories giving me a happy bubbly feeling inside and a sense of content when I am finished. There is just enough internal and external dilemmas for the characters that keep me craving more with every page. Her characters always seem to have to defeat their own personal issues before being able to find happiness. They are able to do that through the help of their perfect match. And Callan and Livvy are a perfect match! So if you’re looking for a book that gives you all the happy feels, then this one is right for you! Like I said above, this is a standalone, but I personally would highly recommend reading the other books in the series as well! You will not want to miss out on how Callan’s friends fell for their woman as well.

5 stars!
