Tycoon, an all-new standalone from Katy Evans is LIVE!!!
The Cover: I am a big fan of Katy Evans, this is no secret if you’ve read my reviews before or visited this blog. So I’ve read all of her books but the cover of Tycoon is my favorite. There is just something about Chad Hurst (the cover model) and the look he gives the reader that is just like: “wow…he can see directly into my soul.” I am SO PICKY about book covers Tycoon is my absolutely favorite and it might actually be my favorite book cover of all time. A+++++
Basics: Tycoon was released on June 20th, 2017 and is 252 pages long. Genre wise Tycoon is contemporary romance, standalone and childhood romance.
Description: 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.
Overall thoughts: Yay for Katy Evans first standalone book! I loved Tycoon! I always think it’s important for authors to try and connect with their readers and I definitely got that vibe from Tycoon. I think everyone can say that they loved someone when they were young or care deeply about someone. Maybe you are with that person right, maybe you aren’t…but there is a time in your life where you stop, take a look back and think what if? I really like exploring that type of romance narrative and I really enjoyed Aaric and Bryn’s story. Aaric is the perfect leading guy; although he didn’t have as much chapters compared to Bryn’s, I loved reading about his thoughts and feelings. Men are SO different than women so I really appreciate when an author writes from their POV.
Bryn is a kick ass woman who is driven, sassy and everything I want to be when I’m 29/30! I loved the dynamic between these two, the push and pull of will they, won’t they? I’m actually quite sad that Tycoon was a standalone because I want more of Aaric and Bryn! That is my constant issue with standalones haha! But all in all, I loved Tycoon and I think it was a great nicely wrapped present Katy Evans has given us at the start of the summer! I can guarantee that Tycoon will either win best cover of the year or be in my top ten reads of 2017.
