Blog Tour & Excerpt: Playboy by Katy Evans

A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.
Playboy-AN.jpg
Synopsis: It started as a game. We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won. Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…and my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.

But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble. What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?

I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

Excerpt:
 
“So you just kissed me because you wanted to.” I speak on a breath.

“Very good. You’re perceptive. Intuitive.”

I realize he’s teasing me in that low, terribly rumbly voice and I wish he would smile at me.

He takes my hand and fingers my palm with his thumb as he leads me to our suite.

I’m sizzling where he touches me, nervously prying my hand free when he leads me into the biggest, most spectacular two-bedroom penthouse suite I’ve ever seen. Not that I’d seen one before in person, only movies.

There’s a kitchen area, and windows from floor to ceiling. A living room, a pool table, gold brass chandeliers, a brown-and-beige-patterned carpet, dark woods, Italian leathers. Gorgeous! I could move in here.

Now I see the appeal but won’t admit as much.

Thinking of our bet, I pay attention to the art on the walls. It’s expensive. I can tell by the numbered print and the signature. Painters with indecipherable and artistic signatures are often the artists to watch. It’s like they know from the moment they paint their first work that they’re on to something big, something that will distinguish their work from all others.

I wish Cullen loved art as much as I do. Maybe I could drag him away from the tables to a local gallery.

“Wow. I could just live he—” I spin around and bump into his big warm body, and he bends his head and kisses my words right out of me.

Kisses me stupid. Kisses my toes curled. Kisses my brain blank. Kisses my heart crazy.

Review & Release Blitz: Playboy by Katy Evans

Playboy-Amazon
The Cover: I think the cover for Playboy is gorgeous and the yellow with the greyscale is gorgeous but this is seriously like the millionth shirtless book cover I have seen this year! I mean probably not the millionth cover, but it certainly feels like it! That being said it definitely reminds me of Cullen and has calm, cocky, sexy attitude and I love it. 

Basics: Playboy was released on July 29th 2018, published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform and is 338 pages long. Genre wise Playboy is contemporary romance and standalone. 

Description: It started as a game. We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.
Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…and my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.

He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.
But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.
What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?
I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

Overall thoughts: Wow! Woooooow! WOW!! I was completely and utterly blown away and destroyed by Playboy! As many of you know, I am the biggest Katy Evans fangirl EVER and Remy from her first book, Real is my hero. But Cullen gives Remy one heck of a run for number one guy! I fell SO hard for Cullen, oh my goodness! What a character, what a man! 

Playboy is part of the Manwhore series universal but definitely can be read a standalone. I definitely loved how all the other characters were included in Cullen and Wynn’s story, everyone is married and riding off into the sunset it seems…except for gallery owner and hopeless romantic Wynn. She is getting over a bad, bad break up and is determined to leave her loser ex in the dust behind her. I don’t blame the girl either, her ex was HORRIBLE. Horrible to the point where Wynn suddenly swears off men…until she meets the Playboy that is. 

Meeting Cullen changes everything; Wynn is attracted to him, intrigued and when he offers an escape to Vegas she takes it and their trip changes everything between them. I love and I mean LOVE these two together. They are such a special couple and Evans does a fantastic job with them, they leap off the pages of Playboy and dive deep into your heart making a home there. 

No spoilers, but one of the many specials things about Katy Evans as a writer is how she makes each book and couple so relatable. Wynn and Cullen deal with something that 44% American couples face every day and I am really glad and thankful that Katy included this in their love story. I loved Playboy so much, it will definitely be one of my favorite books of the summer and the year!

Review: Ladies Man by Katy Evans

51VIfw03U-L._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_27231804

The Cover: Ladies Man got a new cover this year (2018) and while it’s super attractive and great to look at, I am SO mourning the old cover! I loved the old cover because I truly believed it showed Tahoe’s spirit and I just think it’s gorgeous! The new cover is nice but I prefer the old one.

Basics: Ladies Man was released on April 26th 2016, published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, is 290 pages long and is part of the Manwhore series. Genre wise Ladies Man belongs to contemporary romance and standalone.

Description: He’s not the guy you date. He’s the one night stand.

You’d think the man who sends hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me to my skin and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago.

Except he passed on my offer…. Just like I once did on his.He’s wary, like I am. He’s broken, like I am. And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.

So I try to distract myself. I’m back to dating.Tahoe and I are strictly friends. He doesn’t think my new beau is good enough, but to him, no man is good enough for me. Especially Tahoe himself. But the more time Tahoe and I spend around each other, the more confused I feel.

I’m trying to open myself to love. But I’m quickly realizing that the only man I want is stubborn, cocky, unattainable playboy Tahoe Roth.

The one your mother warned you about.
The one my body craves.
The only one who will surely break my heart.
Ladie's Man.jpg
Overall thoughts: Ladies Man is one my favorite books ever and of Katy Evan’s. Tahoe Roth is such a gorgeous, sexy, complex character. Whereas Gina is the beautiful, strong, stubborn woman trying to find her way in this complicated world we have. She is very independent and although she has good friends, tends to find herself riding solo not just with her social life but also when to family and relationships. Tahoe and Gina have been dancing around each other for awhile, both of their friends fell in love and got married…their social circles forever intertwined.  They start off as “friends” but start to change and grow into something that both surprises and terrifies them. Did I mention how much I love this book?! 

Gina and Tahoe have such a wonderful love story. Ladies Man is one of the best slow burning romance books I have ever read. Don’t get me wrong, it drove me nuts because I just wanted them to be together already, but these two are definitely worth the wait and angst. Their attraction and need for each other go so much deeper than lust and the love they have for each other is so heartwarming. I seriously love them. I wish Katy had written ten more books about them honestly. 

Ladies Man is part of the Manwhore series but can be read as a standalone. You don’t have to know what’s going on in the other Manwhore books but I feel like if you have read the other Manwhore books it makes reading Ladies Man much more special. Again Ladies Man is one of my favorite books ever, it’s been two years and I am still obsessed with Tahoe and Gina. I probably will be for the rest of my life and I can guarantee you’ll love them too!

Favorite Quotes: “Love should make you feel good about yourself and about the person you are when you’re with the one you love. Love should make you feel accepted a you are.” -Gina

“I love every part of you. I could be a thousand miles away from you, stay away from you my whole life, put an ocean between us, take a million other women in my arms, and you’re still the one I want, the only woman on my mind.” -Tahoe
