Womanizer by Katy Evans
Release Date: December 5th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating : 5 out of 5 Stars
WOW, this was an awesome read. As a fan of the Manwhore series, it was everything I expected and so much more. There was so much depth to the characters and the story. The slow burn building of Livvy and Callan’s relationship was realistic and their chemistry was undeniable. This book was one heck of an addictive and emotional read!
Callan Carmichael is Malcom Saint and Tahoe Roth’s best friend. Together, they had quite a reputation as players but Callan is now the last man standing, the last bachelor of their group. Callan is the quintessential swoon-worthy hero, oozing charisma and confidence. He is controlling but has a very tender, sweet side that I found adorable. I’m not sure Callan really is a womanizer, though. He didn’t seem to have much time for that anyway! He is a mega successful corporate raider, specialized in hostile takeovers, and a certain level of ruthlessness comes with the territory, I guess. He is someone who has avoided personal entanglements for years and finds himself fascinated by a young intern, his best friend’s younger sister to boot. In a way, Callan is lonely in his ivory tower and he enjoys his burgeoning relationship with Livvy. He likes that she is real with him, pushes his buttons, even if he intimidates her.
Livvy’s insecurities are a part of her personality. She is scared Callan will hurt her, but she can’t help being attracted to him. She opens up to him, tells him about her fears, her hopes and her plans for the future. She is not comfortable with the way he does business, though. Callan believes in her, encourages her and they both enjoy every moment they spend together, as they fall hard for each other. But Livvy has her life planned out, a life without Callan. Is Callan ready to come clean for her and show that he is all in?
“I want to make it clear I have no shame when it comes to you. No rules I won’t break for you. Something about you gets to me like nothing ever has.”
Womanizer was seductive, heart-pounding and sexy as hell! Katy Evans writes beautifully and gives her readers all the feels, without unnecessary drama or angst. This book definitely put me in my happy place and I can’t recommend it enough! It’s mainly told in Livvy’s POV but one of the last chapters and the epilogue are in Callan’s much needed POV! Although it’s part of the Manwhore series, it can be read as a standalone. I hope there will be more books in this wonderful series, I’m greedy that way!
Thanks for visiting and happy reading!

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.
