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.

***ARC received for an honest review***
“Don’t talk, act. Don’t say, show. Don’t promise, prove.”
Callan Carmichael is the last man standing, he is now the most wanted bachelor in Chicago, the hottest and the richest, but the ladies have no chance. Callan Carmichael is a Womanizer, he doesn’t have the propensity to love, only to scratch an itch, but what happens when you meet the one…what happens when you meet your game changer?
“I don’t know that I can love someone that deeply…”
Olivia Roth is Tahoe’s little sister and Tahoe is definitely the big brother, uber protective, his sister is his world. Olivia is business oriented and having finished her degree she struggles to get the internship of her dreams, she needs work experience. Tahoe gets her an internship at Carma, his best friends company, but she gets it on her own merit too. Three months to make her mark and then she will return to the job of her dreams. Her life is mapped out, there are no slip roads for her to take detours, she is a motorway kind of girl, peddle to the metal, full steam ahead, but sometimes life maps have journeys of their own, you just need to be brave enough to take the slip road.
“If he can’t take a little competition and would let something like hardware prevent him from knowing me then I’m not interested. He gets none of my freckles.”
Katy Evans never fails to deliver a swoon worthy hero and Callan Carmichael is definitely no exception. This man was simply adorable in all ways. Callan was extremely motivated and focused, he had built his company from the ground up and was now hugely successful, revered and feared, but also highly misunderstood. There was more to the man that the womanizer everyone perceived him to be, they just had to remove the stars from their eyes to find it.
“I’m in so deep…so fucking deep.”
Olivia was a little spunky despite her professional outward appearance, rules were made to be broken or maybe just a little bent. Starting her new job at Carma was as terrifying as it was exciting and at the end of her first day she just wants to escape and unwind, so she heads to the terrace for some fresh air. Spotting a guy having a smoke break she strikes up conversation as they share a cigarette, they have a lot in common and sometimes it is nice just to talk, to off load. Their end of day cigarette breaks become an everyday occurrence, an event that is the highlight of Olivia’s day, in a place where she knows no-one, she has found her first friend…but is he the kind of friend she needs?
The next day I ask her “Should I tell him I love him?”
The last day, “If I should tell him I love him, send me a sign.”
I hear rustling behind me, glance up at a tall oak to spot two squirrels fucking.
“What is that supposed to mean? Really, Nana!”
This is a story of forbidden love in so far as you don’t sleep with your boss and definitely not your brothers best friend, but like I said Olivia is spunky, rules are made to be bent. Callan Carmichael doesn’t stand a chance, a first for a man who has direction, strength, determination and will power. Life has a way of throwing you curveballs when you least expect it, neither saw it coming, neither ducked, it just hits them full pelt. Love. An extremely powerful emotion, the question is… do you run to it…or away from it?
“Before her, I never wanted to be better or worthy of a single thing. You don’t need to be worthy of what you own if you can afford it. But the love of your girl…that’s something a man needs to own.”
Once again Katy Evans delivers a winner. Smoking chemistry, combustible between the sheets, fantastic character connection, low on the angst (except when Tahoe finds out) but overall a real cute I didn’t see it coming romance. For me, being the greedy cow I am, I wanted more. I wanted more at the end despite the smile inducing, heart-warming epilogue. We have been with these characters for a while now and it is always hard to let go at the end. There were a few characters introduced, a few that I hope will get their own stories so that this series can be continued. I loved catching up with Saint and Tahoe et al, this group are a band of brothers, united they stood and united they fell…in love.
“I’m trapped and I’ve never felt so fucking free.”
