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!

'thudthudthud'
All of this SWOON has made me into a twisted pile of lusty goo!
I JUST CAN'T EVEN!!

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.

Review: Commander In Chief by Katy Evans

The sizzling second installment of the White House series, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

We fell in love during the campaign.
The stakes were high.
Reputations could have been ruined.
Scandal hovered over us like a cloud.
Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America.
And its not my vote he is after.
He wants it all.
My heart. My body. My soul.
He wants me by his side.
In the White House.
Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten.
I am only twenty three. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn't done with me. The part where I lost my heart to Matthew Hamilton? It was only the beginning...

4 'Better than okay. I just bagged the president.' Stars

'I shed more than my clothes when I'm with her. I shed every preconceived notion of who I should be. My last name, the presidency, everything is gone- only I remain. A man, flesh and blood, not perfect, but trying his damn best to be, and a man who wants her. Bad.'

Prepare to sizzle and swoon!! No one writes decadent, scandalous love and kisses quite like Katy Evans!! Somebody call 9-1-1! The temperature at the White House just went up a few degrees and this book is on fire! Holy. Crap!! Yes, go ahead and fan yourself, its justified. Commander in Chief, the highly anticipated conclusion of this duet has landed, and trust me, you won't be able to put it down. Its 110% un-put-down-able- just like any other Katy Evans book I've had my hands on. There's a reason she has quickly become one of my top favourite authors, the anticipation for her next piece of work is almost torture. Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie!!! #KatyEvansAddict

Commander in Chief picks up two months after we were left hanging at the end of Mr. President. A nice, light and fluffy, little ditty of a cliffhanger. Seriously though, I almost died waiting for CiC, but as always Katy makes it worth the wait!

Now as POTUS, reigning over America and her people, Matt Hamilton has big shoes to fill, namely those of his father and former president, Law Hamilton. With memories of a previous lifetime spent at the White House, seemingly lurking at every corner it's time to get a certain nagging issue solved once and for all. Justice. No plagues of haunts past will rain on Matt's presidency. He'll prove to himself and those near and dear that you can have a personal life and rule the free world harmoniously.

'God. The pull he has on me, his magnetism tugging at me. The pain in his eyes only reminding me of my own. He's the president now, but he's still Matt. My first love. And I know that after Matt, I'll never want or love another man again.'

Torn and tortured with matters of the heart, Charlotte Wells isn't sure she's cut out for this lifestyle. Holding on to her privacy might cost her the love of a lifetime. But our boy Hammy has plans for his leading lady, his First Lady!! Gah! These two are destined to be together, to share a love so raw and true that Ijustcan'teven!!

Butterflies will erupt out of nowhere, those feelings grabbing a hold of you and not letting go until the very last page has been read, over and over. This series as a whole will take you hostage, bind you to its words and spit you out a love sick fool! Is it too soon for a re-read?

'I chose him over fear. I chose him over everything...'

Commander in Chief is a story of unyielding love, one that defies all odds and scandal, that proves- Yes! You can have your cake while being POTUS and eat it too, damnit!!

Commander In Chief was the sweetest most delightful love story that I have read. There wasn’t one thing that I didn’t love about it. Matt Hamilton is so perfectly yummy. He’s dominate, loving, caring and immensely protective over the ones that he loves. What more could a woman ask for? Oh and I almost forgot to mention, he is the President of the United States.

I first fell for Matt in Mr. President but he completely owned my heart in Commander In Chief. Every time that man spoke he said something heart melting. The love that he feels for Charlotte was palpable and could be felt all throughout this story, it was simply undeniable.

“One day I’ll do all the things I need to. And she’ll be mine. Mark my words.”

“Does she know this yet?”

“I just told her, he says.”

Charlotte and Matt are determined to make their relationship work and to not let anything come between them. I loved how they were so honest and had mutual respect for one another. Charlotte genuinely wanted to see Matt succeed and she believed in him like no one else. My heart was mushy reading this story. It is totally lovey dovey sugary sweetness and I absolutely adored EVERYTHING about it!

“I’m lost. I’m his. I don’t want to be anywhere else, will never be anyone else’s he’s my guy, my commander, my god.”

Charlotte loved Matt with her heart and soul. There could never be any other man for her.

“I’m so in love with this man sometimes it hurts just because.”

Being the President of the United States was immensely important to Matt but being a good husband was number one to him and that made him the perfect man in my eyes. He never wanted Charlotte to feel like she was in second place and he did everything he possible could to never have her feel like that.

Matt & Charlotte are most definitely one of my favorite book couples and will stay in my heart for a long time to come. Thank you Katy Evans for writing such an amazing, flawless love story.

Review: Womanizer by Katy Evans

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

5 'I'll quit smoking. But I'm never quitting her.' Stars

A Manwhore, Ladies Man & Womanizer walk into a bar...ok, I suck at jokes so lets try a review lol

This series! GAH! It's one of my top 5. I simply cannot get enough of these fun loving, super sexxxy men! I could read them forever-ever and never bore. Katy Evans has penned one heck of a delicious group of players who find their forever girl, the one who ruins them for all others, the one to tame their wild, wanton, player ways. The one who ultimately wins their heart. Its a swoon-fest page turner of feels and emotions from start to finish!

"He's like the testament to singleness. All his friends are taken, so now he's the last man standing."

Callan Carmichael, a name synonymous with wealth and being a merciless businessman. A name notorious around Chicago due to his Womanizing ways. Calculated, thorough, a stickler for perfection, and giving nothing better than your best- in life and in all matters relating to Carma, his conglomerate of multi billion-dollar companies. The man has a reputation. Heck, I was a bit intimidated at first. You know who wasn't, not the least bit intimidated? Olivia Roth. Yes, that's right. Tahoe's little sister *gets all giddy* OMG! YES! YES! YES!!!!

'I'm being kissed from the inside out. His hunger only feeds mine.'

How Livvy and Callan come to meet is definitely like a page out of a book! The innocence of Liv combined with EVERYTHING the encompasses Callan, her Hot Smoker Guy. You guys, I can't even right now! I was exactly like a giddy little girl on Christmas morning while devouring this latest installment in the series. Goofy smile plastered on my face, full on body chills and the fluttering and pitter-patter of my heart. Love is not an adequate enough word to describe my feelings about Womanizer! I fell hard and I fell completely in love with Callan and Livvy, but especially Callan! So much so, I'm considering changing my last name to Carmichael. I think it would have a nice ring to it.

'This is scandalous. This little secret thing between us. A little bit dangerous. I know it's a little bit dangerous. I don't know what it is that we've started, but I'm waiting for it. My temperature is rising.'

This is a deliciously sexy story of facing your fears, realizing that sometimes its ok to break the mold. To re-write your plans as you go. Never set aside for tomorrow what you can do, have or become or be TODAY! Love happens when you least expect it. Grab hold and live, live, live! And, Man oh man! Those kisses!!!

'Climb the terrace we've built and come to the edge, and take a look, Olivia. I'm standing right there.'

*plop* oh be still my beating heart <3 br="" nbsp="">
Last man standing? Not so much anymore :D

With Saint & Tahoe being off the market, Callan Carmichael is now the lone surviving most eligible bachelor in the manwhore series. He can be ruthless in business. He has power, wealth and good looks. He is charming, confident and used to getting what he wants, when he wants it. And up until now no one has been able to hold his attention long enough to keep him for more than a night. That is until Olivia (Livvy) Roth comes to town.
  
Livvy is forbidden and should be totally off limits to Callan but when these two meet there is an undeniable attraction to one another. Neither can fight it and neither wants to fight it. Livvy is young and somewhat inexperienced but don’t let that fool you into thinking she doesn’t know what she wants or how to get it because she does and I loved that about her character. Some of the things that would come out of her mouth before she thought about it was hilarious and both characters had me laughing with their witty comebacks.

"I just wish I had your balls." 
" Where exactly do you want them?"

I went into this story expecting one thing and I finished it being pleasantly surprised. I loved the banter between the characters and I adored how the story developed. Womanizer is funny, captivating, steamy, irresistible and romantic. It has a little bit of everything to keep you entertained and coming back for more.
