Love cannot be forbidden. The more that flame is covered up, the hotter it burns. Love can always find a way. ~ Pyramus and Thisbe
When a Katy Evans book lands in my hot hands, I shut out the world because that book BECOMES MY WORLD. Nothing exists except Katy Evans’ words and me, words that I devour yet savor, words that penetrate straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, shooting sensations straight through me. Her brilliant and beautiful books are my love…my life.
I clutched this story with a bit of anxiety, adrenaline coursing through my veins, as I exited my everyday life and entered the world of the Womanizer. I knew that this last man standing in the trio of manwhores—the Womanizer—would cast a spell on me as the others did and claim me for life. Oh was I claimed; I swiftly succumbed to this story that slowly and smoothly seduced me. Womanizer just began and I already did not want it to end…ever.
Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Womanizer enticed me with a build-up of feels…a slow burn of smolder, swoon, and soul. I bled in angst. I burned in need. I was engulfed in flames, a fire that sparked into a full inferno. My appetite for these powerful and penetrating words could not be sated enough. Womanizer’s words WERE ALL THE THINGS that made me melt from inside out, shooting straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, sensations swimming around me.
Womanizer filled me with a heady mix of energy and emotion, an exhilaration that made me feel giddy and dizzy as if this story were my drug and I were the addict. Oh was Womanizer MY ADDICTION. Womanizer was the air that I needed to breathe…my oxygen…as every breath belonged to this book. THIS BOOK BECAME ME.
Oh Callan Carmichael. Tahoe Roth’s best friend and billionaire with a sexy, bad boy, James Dean look and vibe. Copper hair and golden eyes. Yummy facial scruff. Tall. Cut. Cocky. Complex. Intense. PURE PERFECTION.
“I can’t believe anything can be both this male and this perfect.”
Olivia Roth, Tahoe’s little sister, is interning at the company Callan owns. Beautiful, blonde, and brainy Olivia is out to prove that there is more to her than meets the eye and definitely not a dumb blonde, a stereotype that follows her and one that she uses as motivation to rock the business world.
A chance meeting on the terrace at work changes her life when she encounters the most sinfully sexy, cool, charming, and confident man who becomes Olivia’s confidant with chemistry between combustible. A man who happens to be Olivia’s boss.
“His lips capture mine, our tongues moving slowly to meet. It’s like two lightning bolts crashing…God. I’m being kissed from the inside out. His hunger only feeds mine.”
That kiss melted me from inside out. I felt the passion from Olivia and Callan penetrate me, owning these pages…owning me.
“Say you can handle what I’m about to do to you. Once I’m in, I’m owning every freckle I find….You’re coming so fast, so hard, and so very frequently tonight there won’t be a day that you come and not think of me.”
I. WAS. ON. FIRE. The heat set me ablaze, as I burned along with this sensual and seductive story. The forbidden fanned those flames of fire, sparking even more desire.
“I’m a full-time working girl and I can’t be Callan’s shiny new toy.”
Olivia will surrender her body, but not her heart as she won’t let this Womanizer hurt her or squash her plans for becoming a success businesswoman.
“I’m trying to do the right thing, but I’m not a good guy.”
For the first time in his life, Callan is wowed by a woman, one who is more just sex, and he can’t fight his addiction to Olivia who has turned his world upside down. His best friend’s sister is supposed to be forbidden, but temptation has never felt so right. He is torn between capturing his beautiful butterfly with whom he is falling in love and letting her spread her wings to fly.
I loved their fierce friendship that burned as bright as their intense chemistry. Friendship along with chemistry is the perfect beginning of a relationship, the substance, the build-up to love.
“I had my whole life planned out, and maybe Callan won’t change his spots for a girl—there’s a reason he’s the last man standing.”
This player may finally end the game as the prize is too good to resist.
“I’m a reasonable man. So why, when it comes to you, do I have no reason?”
Oh how I LOVED CALLAN. Tough and tender. Intense and irresistible. Complex and compassionate. Sweet and sexy. All man. ALL MINE.
“I know I can break. I know this can break me.”
Will Olivia let Callan into her heart or will this womanizer remain the last man standing?
Womanizer bleeds passion with heart and soul in an addictive and seductive, smoldering, and swoon-filled story of forbidden love. Oh did I smolder and swoon! Womanizer was the wind beneath my wings where I flew on an adrenaline and angst-filled ride. Womanizer was my addiction. My ache. My adrenaline. MY ALL. Womanizer twisted itself around every piece of me, quickly capturing me in its clutches. IT did not let go; I did not let go. I FELL FAST. I FELL HARD. I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING WOMANIZER!
Katy Evans once again outdid herself in one UNPUTDOWNABLE, pulse-pounding, and pleasurable penned piece of PERFECTION!!! Weaving her magic into wondrous words that make you melt to mush, Katy is an artist and those pages are her canvas where she paints words to life. SO MUCH LIFE AND LOVE. OH DO I LOVE HER WORDS WITH EVERY BREATH I TAKE. Her beautiful, broken, and brilliant books bled into me….becoming me. Oh did Womanizer come to life!!!
Womanizer is the perfect end to the Manwhore series. The innocence…the angst…the explosive chemistry…the raw sexiness…the sweetness…the swoon…the fierce friendship…the forbidden element…ALL OF THE FEELS…EVERYTHING!!! Dizzying, dominant, and spine-tingling, Womanizer was my rush. This all-consuming, raw, and racy romance felt real, as it wrapped itself around my head and heart, relentlessly tugging and tearing, and never letting go. I don’t ever want to let go.

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.
