Genre: Contemporary Romance
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full length 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.
Ruthless. Arrogant. Controlling. Demanding.
These are just some of the ways that Callan Carmichael is described by those who think they know him and the business and player persona he wears.
Player. Womanizer. Last Man Standing.
This is how the women of Chicago view Callan, hoping for one night with him and maybe more as if they have any say in the matter.
Hot Smoker Guy. Mailroom Guy. Terrace Guy. Drake. Mr. Carmichael. Callan.
These are the many names and descriptions Olivia Roth uses to describe and define the man she believes him to be and the one she soon learns he is.
But despite the revelation that occurs and her mind understanding his off-limits’ status, Olivia can’t help but want him, especially when it seems like her feelings are reciprocated, and even though there can’t be a future for them due to Olivia’s career goals and Callan’s friendship with her brother, Tahoe, the pull they feel towards one another and their bodies’ need to claim each other sends them down an extremely tenuous path – one that could not only change Olivia’s professional and personal timelines, but also the way she lives her life and sees her place in the world.
Olivia Roth is quite the driven 22 year old business woman, and it shows in her work ethic and her determination to learn all she can as an intern at Callan’s company, Carma, Inc. And while what she learns helps her to understand the parts of the business world she wants no part of, what she acquires the most knowledge about is Callan himself and the fact that his business expertise goes beyond hostile takeovers and the money that can be made.
Olivia and Callan’s relationship is one that has many layers and while they both know that one shouldn’t mix business with pleasure, their feelings for each other make it difficult to heed the warnings and remain nothing more than boss and employee.
Through Olivia’s point of view, Katy Evans allows readers to see Callan’s many sides, not just the ones the media writes about…but the man behind the playboy demeanor and the ruthless businessman, and those intimate details help us to truly understand who Callan is at his core and why Olivian can’t help but want to be claimed by him, even if it goes against every one of her plans.
Womanizer is Olivia and Callan’s awakening, in a way, because the bond they form provides them with an outlet to experience a different kind of life…a different kind of relationship and it also allows them realize things about themselves that they never would have if they didn’t take the risk of moving past their professionalism.
Callan may have been a womanizer, but those many sexual escapades allow him to realize when he’s found something extraordinary and then take the steps to prove that he’s so much more than how society and other women see him. Plus, it’s showed him how to manipulate a woman’s body in the most pleasurable of ways, which is clearly illustrated in the steamy scenes he shares with Olivia.
Katy Evans continues to dazzle me with her sexy alpha males and the women who tame them and make them theirs, and I can’t wait to see who she gives us next!
