Review: Tycoon by Katy Evans

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

4 "It's wild and free and raw and primal, and it's all in his kiss." Stars

Katy Evan does it once again!! Book, after book, winning my heart over with each new alpha she brings to life! Ruthless in business and passionate behind closed doors, it wasn't hard to fall for this savvy Tycoon!! Katy Evans does Alpha males like nobodies business, and Aaric Christos is one alpha everyone needs to experience!

Tycoon entails every facet that causes me to fall head over heels in love with a book! This tantalizing yet decadent slow burn, second chance romance is bursting at the seams with sexual tension, angst, and ALL the sizzle and swoon that make the butterflies in my stomach go craaaaaazaaay! Heart pounding adrenaline throughout the crazy ups and downs, unexpected twists and turns. The dirty talking and sweet moments... such sweet heart melting tenderness. OMG! This book is pretty much EVERYTHING!

All of this SWOON has made me into a twisted pile of lusty goo!

And those kisses!!! Can we just talk about how sweet, luscious and mouth watering HOT they are?! Holy crapola!
*puckers up*

'He kisses a thousand times better than in my decades-long fantasies. So good my heart beats in my whole body-my chest, my stomach, my thighs, in between...'

A long lost love, a decades-long fantasy, the timing for Brynn Kelly and Aaric Christos had not been on their side when they met back in high school.  Fast forward to present day Manhattan, NY. This is when the story gets real, when it gets raw. It's go time! *bites nails* -That- special connection between Brynn and Christos still exists, maybe stronger than ever in part due their extended time apart. The bond, the magnetism, the push and pull. Oh. My. God! It was so easy to get swept up into the emotion of this story! No matter how alpha they are now, they'll always the sweet boy you fell in love with years ago.

'I give in and for a moment, I just want it all. I want all of this man. I want to know what he wants, what he dreams, what makes him up, I want to dissect him and let him dissect me and then I want to put each other together with the wrong pieces, so one piece of him ends up in me,  and some of mine end up in him.'

'It's an obsession, and addiction, a complete infatuation.'

I love the anticipation of knowing that a new Katy Evans book will be out soon. Once I find out one is coming I can’t think of anything else but getting my hands on it. So, I was very ecstatic to get an email saying that I had been selected to receive an ARC of Tycoon. I started it the day it hit my kindle!

Tycoon was not what I originally thought it would be. Katy writes THE BEST ALPHA MALES, and I expected Christo’s to be another one to add to the list of the ones that have stolen my heart however I was just a little unexpectedly surprised. Don’t get me wrong while he certainly had alpha male tendencies to him, I felt his caring, gentle side was more prevalent throughout the story. He was dreamy almost right from the start.

I adored that this was a love story that really spanned years. It was a love that was lost and given a second change to rekindle itself. It was sweet, it was enduring and it was very heartfelt watching these two characters get to know one another and fall in love again.

It was a sweet love story but it was not without its ups and downs. You know there has to be some drama , that’s what makes the story good..lol

For the most part though it was an easy read with loveable characters that will have you rooting for them from the very first page. Will they find their HEA with each other? You’ll have to read the book to find out.
