Manwhore #4


Rate this book
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full 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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Womanizer (stand-alone). Forbidden romance with brother’s off-limits womanizing friend who happens to also be the boss!

“Say you can handle what I’m about to do to you.”

Books in the Manwhore series are most enjoyed if read in order:
Book 1: Manwhore - Saint’s story
Book 2: Manwhore + 1 - Saint’s story
Book 2.5: Ms. Manwhore - Saint’s story
Book 3: Ladies Man - Tahoe’s story
Book 4: Womanizer - Callan’s story

Womanizer (stand-alone) opens up to university student Olivia Roth, Livvy heading to the windy city for a summer internship at Carma, Inc. Its intimidating CEO, the untouchable Callan Carmichael is a ruthless businessman by day, womanizer by night, Olivia’s brother’s best friend and now her new off-limits boss.

That won’t pose a problem for Olivia since she is set on working hard adhering to her meticulously mapped out life plan. In fact, she aims to stay clear of the infamous Mr. Carmichael altogether so she can return home for her dream job.

She allows herself some downtime on the company terrace sneaking a cigarette with a handsome stranger she refers to as “hot smoker guy.” Candid conversations, with “frogs” jumping out, about Olivia’s life or lack of (sex) life allows for funny moments as their rendezvous heat up. Good thing the sex-on-a stick guy works in the mail room… how bad could a one-night-stand be?

Callan Carmichael is stealth. With that I mean he is a quiet (storm) and laidback (force) guy never giving away much about himself and leaving me Olivia panting for more. Seven words to describe Callan: observant, private, elusive, non-committal, reflective, possessive and good listener.

“He’s got the biggest, hardest, longest, thickest erection I’ve ever seen.”

If Callan has us coming back for more credit must given to Olivia Roth, Livvy for driving the story. It is her quirky confessions that create many hilarious situations and has Callan intrigued while endearing herself to me. Seven words to describe Olivia: blunt, honest, smart, determined, hardheaded, endearing, awkward and unassuming

“He cleans up as if we hadn’t just had a mind-blowing sex session. I lie comatose in bed.”

Womanizer, told from Olivia’s POV sprinkled with a couple of chapters from Callan’s is a hilariously funny, off-the charts steamy doubly forbidden romance. It ends with a precious epilogue years into the future. Now I am curious about the side character’s stories.

Entertaining plot! Brilliant story-telling! Smoking hot Callan! Charming Olivia!

“In the middle of the night we had sleepy sex and he made me come again.”

Love cannot be forbidden. The more that flame is covered up, the hotter it burns. Love can always find a way. ~ Pyramus and Thisbe

When a Katy Evans book lands in my hot hands, I shut out the world because that book BECOMES MY WORLD. Nothing exists except Katy Evans’ words and me, words that I devour yet savor, words that penetrate straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, shooting sensations straight through me. Her brilliant and beautiful books are my love…my life.

I clutched this story with a bit of anxiety, adrenaline coursing through my veins, as I exited my everyday life and entered the world of the Womanizer. I knew that this last man standing in the trio of manwhores—the Womanizer—would cast a spell on me as the others did and claim me for life. Oh was I claimed; I swiftly succumbed to this story that slowly and smoothly seduced me. Womanizer just began and I already did not want it to end…ever.

Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Sigh. Smolder. Swoon. Womanizer enticed me with a build-up of feels…a slow burn of smolder, swoon, and soul. I bled in angst. I burned in need. I was engulfed in flames, a fire that sparked into a full inferno. My appetite for these powerful and penetrating words could not be sated enough. Womanizer’s words WERE ALL THE THINGS that made me melt from inside out, shooting straight through my heart like Cupid’s arrows, sensations swimming around me.

Womanizer filled me with a heady mix of energy and emotion, an exhilaration that made me feel giddy and dizzy as if this story were my drug and I were the addict. Oh was Womanizer MY ADDICTION. Womanizer was the air that I needed to breathe…my oxygen…as every breath belonged to this book. THIS BOOK BECAME ME.

Oh Callan Carmichael. Tahoe Roth’s best friend and billionaire with a sexy, bad boy, James Dean look and vibe. Copper hair and golden eyes. Yummy facial scruff. Tall. Cut. Cocky. Complex. Intense. PURE PERFECTION.

“I can’t believe anything can be both this male and this perfect.”

Olivia Roth, Tahoe’s little sister, is interning at the company Callan owns. Beautiful, blonde, and brainy Olivia is out to prove that there is more to her than meets the eye and definitely not a dumb blonde, a stereotype that follows her and one that she uses as motivation to rock the business world.

A chance meeting on the terrace at work changes her life when she encounters the most sinfully sexy, cool, charming, and confident man who becomes Olivia’s confidant with chemistry between them combustible. A man who happens to be Olivia’s boss.

“His lips capture mine, our tongues moving slowly to meet. It’s like two lightning bolts crashing…God. I’m being kissed from the inside out. His hunger only feeds mine.”

That kiss melted me from inside out. I felt the passion from Olivia and Callan penetrate me, owning these pages…owning me.

“Say you can handle what I’m about to do to you. Once I’m in, I’m owning every freckle I find….You’re coming so fast, so hard, and so very frequently tonight there won’t be a day that you come and not think of me.”

I. WAS. ON. FIRE. The heat set me ablaze, as I burned along with this sensual and seductive story. The forbidden fanned those flames of fire, sparking even more desire.

“I’m a full-time working girl and I can’t be Callan’s shiny new toy.”

Olivia will surrender her body, but not her heart as she won’t let this Womanizer hurt her or squash her plans for becoming a success businesswoman.

“I’m trying to do the right thing, but I’m not a good guy.”

For the first time in his life, Callan is wowed by a woman, one who is more just sex, and he can’t fight his addiction to Olivia who has turned his world upside down. His best friend’s sister is supposed to be forbidden, but temptation has never felt so right. He is torn between capturing his beautiful butterfly with whom he is falling in love and letting her spread her wings to fly.

I loved their fierce friendship that burned as bright as their intense chemistry. Friendship along with chemistry is the perfect beginning of a relationship, the substance, the build-up to love.

“I had my whole life planned out, and maybe Callan won’t change his spots for a girl---there’s a reason he’s the last man standing.”

This player may finally end the game as the prize is too good to resist.

“I’m a reasonable man. So why, when it comes to you, do I have no reason?”

Oh how I LOVED CALLAN. Tough and tender. Intense and irresistible. Complex and compassionate. Sweet and sexy. All man. ALL MINE.

“I know I can break. I know this can break me.”

Will Olivia let Callan into her heart or will this womanizer remain the last man standing?

Womanizer bleeds passion with heart and soul in an addictive and seductive, smoldering, and swoon-filled story of forbidden love. Oh did I smolder and swoon! Womanizer was the wind beneath my wings where I flew on an adrenaline and angst-filled ride. Womanizer was my addiction. My ache. My adrenaline. MY ALL. Womanizer twisted itself around every piece of me, quickly capturing me in its clutches. IT did not let go; I did not let go. I FELL FAST. I FELL HARD. I FELL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING WOMANIZER!

Katy Evans once again outdid herself in one UNPUTDOWNABLE, pulse-pounding, and pleasurable penned piece of PERFECTION!!! Weaving her magic into wondrous words that make you melt to mush, Katy is an artist and those pages are her canvas where she paints words to life. SO MUCH LIFE AND LOVE. OH DO I LOVE HER WORDS WITH EVERY BREATH I TAKE. Her beautiful, broken, and brilliant books bled into me….becoming me. Oh did Womanizer come to life!!!

Womanizer is the perfect end to the Manwhore series. The innocence…the angst…the explosive chemistry…the raw sexiness…the sweetness...the swoon...the fierce friendship...the forbidden element...ALL OF THE FEELS…EVERYTHING!!! Dizzying, dominant, and spine-tingling, Womanizer was my rush. This all-consuming, raw, and racy romance felt real, as it wrapped itself around my head and heart, relentlessly tugging and tearing, and never letting go. I don’t ever want to let go.

I can't get enough of Katy Evan's reads. Ever. I swear, if she gave me a new book every single month, forever, and ever, and ever, and everrrrrrrr, amen, I would be the happiest little reading bee who ever lived. I am obsessively in love with her words. And I feel like I've been looking forward to Womanizer for MONTHS.

AND MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!

From the moment I saw the cover, to the second I read the utterly awesome blurb, I needed this book on my Kindle. Callan Carmichael has always felt like an open page to me. Obviously, we've met him before in the Manwhore Series with Malcolm Saint, and in Ladies Man with Tahoe Roth, but for the most part he was a fresh canvas where anything could happen. He maintained this alluring, mysterious air that I so very, very intrigued by.

Callan's part of the trio of sexiest bachelors in Chicago (Well, was apart of it. With Malcom and Tahoe now out of the lady loving game, Callan's alone). The world is at his fingertips, and he wants for absolutely nothing. He's known as a ruthless man in business and a womanizer in bed. Callan works hard but plays even harder! That is... Until sweet Olivia Roth stops him in his tracks and makes him rethink everything.

Olivia is Tahoe's (Callan's best friend) little sister. We meet her briefly in Ladies Man. She's sweet and outgoing with this air of innocence that's down right refreshing. I absolutely love the way Katy reveals her main characters to us. There is always this vulnerability that shines that makes her leading ladies so relatable.

Olivia is no different.
She's trying to make her way in the world.
Trying to prove herself.
And while doing that, she secures an internship at Carma, Callan's empire, for the summer.

Callan and Olivia's first meeting is so damn sweet **shivers**. I was swooning from their first exchange. These two have an instant connection. Callan is drawn to Livvy's sweetness and innocence and Livvy is drawn to Callan's alpha attitude and sexy dominance. These two are cataclysmic, they burn the pages of your kindle and make your thighs tingle.

It's hot.


I actually really think this might just be Katy's hottest book to date. There is no shortage of steamy scenes. Intoxicating. So steamy I was left fanning myself.

Womanizer is the perfect STAND-ALONE novel. You do NOT have to read any books before this. It's written in a way that it feels like it could be the first of the series. Overall, I LOVED it. There's never anything bad I can say about a Katy Evans read.

She's my favorite.
Will always be my favorite.
And Callan was another perfect addition to a series that just couldn't get any more perfect.

5 stars!

'Womanizer' is the fourth installment in Katy Evans’s series entitled 'Manwhore' and features another sexy, manwhore we met before in the previous installments, Callan Carmichael. Katy Evans delivered one sexy, forbidden romance that sucked me in from the very beginning. The one who stole the show for me here was our hero, Callan, who I guarantee will charm the pants off you from the start.

“Love is an illusion. The more you want it, the more it hides”.

Olivia is a 22 years old young woman, who helped by his brother, gets a three-month internship at Carma Inc., a conglomerate of ten-plus huge multibillion-dollar companies involving media, real estate, worldwide investments, and takeovers. Olivia is determined not only to keep her job, but also to climb the ranks on her own merit, even is the CEO is one her brother’s best friends. She has a plan – collecting as much experience as she can in these three months, return to her home town and work for a local company or maybe start her own business.

"I’m not the Devil… I just choose to allow some people to believe that I am."

One day, on the company’s terrace, she meets the “Hot Smoker Guy”, a gorgeous man who intrigues her like no other. They continue spending some time together every day for a little while, eventually sharing one hot passionate night together. The next day, Olivia finds out the stranger is the one and only, Callan Carmichael, her boss’ boss and her brother best friend. She tries to avoid him at any cost, but Callan has other plans. His new infuriating, sexy employee intrigues him too much for him to stay away, so he’s more determined than ever to make Olivia stay in his bed for the duration of her stay. But Neither of them expects their fling to become something more, their attraction to be so powerful or their plans to be turn upside down by the other.

“Keeping my hands off you is testing my willpower to an extent beyond my limits.” He slips his hand on my thigh, squeezing it. “I want you nightly.”

I enjoyed this one! Olivia and Callan were sexy as f@ck together. I loved the sensual electricity between them and don’t get me started on their sexy times. These two were so sexy and passionate together. I loved all the sex scenes which were well written and detailed.

Callan was a fantastic hero. He was sexy and charming, mysterious and passionate and won me over from the very beginning. He was sweet, loyal and protective and overall, pretty great. Olivia was just an okay character to me. I found her to be a little immature and naïve at times, so unfortunately, I can’t say I connected with her as much as I would have liked. I was a little bothered as well by her inner dialogue which I found to be a little annoying.

Personally, I would have liked more chapters from Callen’s POV, because to be honest, the chapters from his point-of-view were more interesting and well done than Olivia’s. Also, I wouldn’t have minded more angst and even more drama. Just saying!

Overall, 'Womanizer' was a quick, sweet and sexy story with great characters and a lovely romance!

Smoking has never looked and felt so dangerous and sexy, before Callan and Olivia in this hot new sexy story by Katy Evans…

Katy Evans never seems to disappoint her readers when it comes down to the subject of a good balance and mixture of drama and romance. Her writing is a pure mixture of sophistication and normalcy, with a side of spicy steamy sex to it. This story is definitely like no other she has written, this one has the vibes of buoyancy and independence, but most of all vibes of pure love. Callan Carmichael is THE person that you first see in the cover: rouged, tough, smokes, and a total bachelor of the most. What you don’t see in the picture is the true Callan. He is so loveable and determined, but most of all a total sweetheart. When he meets Olivia though, he is a total goner! You can tell from the first interaction Livvy has with him that these two are total swoon worthy. Marking someone as a bachelor in most cases means that there is a backstory that lead them to where they are at… Callan is not a newbie on those;

”I don’t know that I can love someone that deeply,” he says. He frowns as if remembering something, and he glances at his glass and strokes his thumb around the rim. “I’m not built that way.”


Olivia on the other hand, is not looking for something to settle. She is only in Chicago to gain experience in part of his company so she can start her business in the future back in Texas, where she is originally from. A curve ball was sure thrown at her when meeting Callan, also known as Hot Smoker Guy, the Mail Guy, sucker machine… (For me, he is simply Mr. Romance of the year!) Olivia is a woman with independent tastes. She tries not to depend her life from her parents, but her brother is another aspect and also another former manwhore we have seen in the past, Tahoe from “Ladies Man.” Tahoe is beyond protective of Livvy which is cute when you look at it in a sibling type of way, but Tahoe comes to a point that Livvy needs to top him and Callan needs to step in to claim her as his.


”You taste so sweet.” He tastes me deeper, as if he wants more, and holds me even closer. “You’re so sweet,” he says in an even huskier voice…

They are both absolutely incredible in bed, so sweet and tender. But Callan portrayed something that I was not expecting… He is not 100% dominating in bed but still keeps things in control, giving a mixture of equilibrium to their intimate scenes, and also giving Olivia control over their relationship both inside and outside of the bedroom. She is so candor on everything she wants him to do to her body, which is refreshing to read because I don’t read that very often.

Even though throughout their “relationship” they both try to negate each other, while Olivia does not want to get hurt, their chemistry is so strong and thick that not even a steak knife would be able to cut through it. They can definitely be considered as one of those couples that just simply cannot be apart.

”I like how infuriating he is. How he pushes me and brings out my competitive side. How he smokes and dangles that cigarette from his mouth. His touch and his kiss.

Even though the whole story is in Olivia’s pov, there is a twist at the end that brings us a perspective point of Callan’s. Thankfully we are able to read what Callan thinks, and has been thinking this whole time being with Olivia. Katy, yet again never seems to satisfy her readers by giving us a glimpse of what is to come in her future stories/books. Wynn, Olivia’s co-worker and now best friend will be introduced to Callan’s brother, Cullen Carmichael and I cannot wait to get my hands on her next masterpiece… Thank you to Katy for the chance on reviewing this book!

Leave it to Katy Evans to create yet another irresistible Billionaire Playboy book boyfriend that had my heart racing!! I absolutely loved Womanizer so much that once I had the time to sit down and enjoy it, the hours flew by in the blink of an eye and before I knew it, the story was over. What made this book so incredibly addictive for me was the hero, Callan Carmichael. We met him in the previous books but never did I truly appreciate how incredibly sexy this man could be. He sure did give Malcolm Saint a run for his money. Although, I must admit Malcolm is still my favorite in this series by just a tiny millimeter!! This was one hell of a steamy take on the ”romance with the big brother’s best friend” trope!! Get ready to have your panties nearly obliterated by the scorching hot steam that generates between Callan and Livvy.

Olivia Roth lands a highly coveted summer internship at Callan Carmichael’s corporation with the help of her big brother, Tahoe. For the next three months, she will be living in the heart of Chicago and gaining invaluable experience. Her plan is to learn as much as possible and then when she goes back home to Austin, Texas, she will eventually open up her own business which will specialize in reviving companies that are in danger of going out of business. By the time she turns twenty-eight she will then be ready for marriage. She finds herself feeling a bit lonely during her first few days in Chicago until one afternoon she ends up on the company’s terrace and meets “Hot Smoker Guy”. This guy is the most beautiful man Livvy has ever laid her eyes upon and for some reason she thinks he works in the mailroom. For almost a week she finds herself going out to that terrace around the same time every afternoon where she shares a cigarette and highly engaging conversations with the “Hottie” from the mailroom. One night while at a club the two run into each other and Livvy uncharacteristically invites him back to her apartment where the two share one hell of an explosive night in bed. Unfortunately, they're in for a rude awakening when Tahoe calls Callan’s cell phone the next morning and they then realize who they just spent the night with.

Livvy ends up trying to avoid Callan, which I just thought was impossible because he’s not a man that a woman could forget that easy and boy can he lay on the charm. It seems to take a huge amount of effort on Callan’s part to break through Livvy’s walls that she puts up to protect herself. This lucky lady manages to totally captivate the once notorious womanizer of Chicago and instead of taking what he is offering she tries to blindly stick to her idiotic life plan. I did find Livvy to be a bit delusional and naïve at times, but Callan had me seeing so many stars in my eyes that I was able to overlook some of the irritating qualities of the heroine. There is no denying how amazing the chemistry was between Callan and Livvy. I was easily swept off my feet by this story!!

Callan Carmichael! Two words you will be saying over and Over and OVER! Hot damn this man is excruciatingly HAWT!!! He can keep going like the energizer bunny, over and over and OVER! Oh my Lord that man comes close to Malcolm Saint, which I never thought possible for any man.

Olivia Roth (Livvy) takes an internship at her brothers best friends company. When she meets an irresistible man on the balcony the night of her first day of work, she never imagines the man ends up being Callan Fucking Carmichael himself. She thinks he works in the mailroom. Well the girl is in for the shock of her life when she finds herself in bed with her boss! The man can lick and suck on a woman forever… and he knows exactly how to work a woman over in so many dirty and delicious ways. How will Livvy handle things now that she’s been between the sheets with the boss? Will Callan steer clear of Livvy to avoid risking his friendship with Tahoe? So many questions and you will know all by the end... Keep reading to find out the dirty deets.

Katy Fucking Evans does it again! She brings us the steam, the smut and the all time sexy in another addictive and heartwarming story. Callan and Livvy are HOT HOT HOT! This is one of those books that makes you swoon constantly while clinging to every single word because it’s that mother effing good. 5 smoldering and delicious stars for another banging (pun intended) book by Ms. Evans.

Katy Evans is now, after reading this book, one of my favorite writers. I discovered her work through Remy and Brooke in Real and continued with The Manwhore Series, although I was not extremely impressed by neither Malcom Saint nor Tahoe Roth. Well, after 3 books of struggling to find a perfect hero for this series, she wrote about Callan and put me at ease.
I loved the book in so many ways, but let me first tell you something about the plot.

We have our dear and sweet Olivia, Tahoe's sister, who comes in Chicago for an 3 months internship at Carma, Callan's company. She is determined to learn as much as possible, so when the times comes for her to return home, every company will love her resume and fight to hire her.
She has everything figured out, her timeline is precisely defined, she even knows at what age she will get married and have babies. But, my luck was that Katy Evans introduced Callan in the picture to spoil Olivia's plans. In her first day at Carma, she needs a break and goes on the building's terrace to relax a bit. There she finds a mysterious young man who she names Hot Smoker Guy. They immediately click, having a lot in common, liking the same things, being relaxed in each others presence, but most important, having undeniable chemistry. This connection will make them meet on the terrace every day to share a cigarette and talk, discovering each other.

Olivia is clueless that this mysterious guy is actually a very important person in the company in which she is an intern, but stay calm, she will find out after a passionate night that her normal and average crush is in fact the CEO of Carma, Callan Carmichael. Aaaa ooops?:D From that day forward, they will face a terrific attraction that will make them have a change of heart about priorities and having everything planned. Their love will be spontaneous, unplanned, but amazing.

I enjoyed the characters very much. Olivia was my kind of girl. Insecure, wanting to prove that she can be big on her own, looking for belonging, but discovering other things that gave a different purpose to her life. She left her home's shelter and explored other possibilities, a thing that I admired and craved to do as well. Meeting Callan was something new and unexpected for her, completely new in feelings and emotions. It was both sweet and intense, making her very confuse about which way to go. Love or a career? Sometimes the unplanned things in life are the most intense and by the end of the day, you discover how great it was to just let destiny play with you a little and see where the path takes you.

Callan was amazing. He was the best hero from this series for me and I was so trilled to see how Olivia managed to knock him off his feet and forget about his womanizer ways! I enjoyed seeing his walls coming down on him and having no choice but to surrender. He was very intense as a character, with a lot of funny, interesting and motivational lines that really situated him above his friends and former heroes of the series. He pushed Olivia not only emotionally but professionally as well. He believed in her, saw her potential and wanted to make her his equal. I admired him because he divided very well their relationship: he kept the romantic one separated from the professional one, but managed at the end to be the perfect mixture in becoming partners in the truly sense of the word.

Katy Evans managed to absorb me into this story, with her very well built characters but also very steamy scenes. I almost forgot how good she is at this, what amazing skills she has in developing a love story and running it through all the stages possible. The only minus that I found on this book is that I wanted more from this couple. I met the romantic part of them, but I also wanted to see them as a team professionally, seeing how they mingle together and being unbeatable in what they do. Maybe their romantic scenes were a little too frequent, not that I am complaining, but it kind of distracted you from the main idea and plot of the book.

4 smoking stars for this!

A new job. A new city. A three-month internship that will start Olivia Roth on the path to her dreams. Olivia has her life plan all mapped out, that is until she meets the most intriguing man having a cigarette.

Soon Olivia is looking forward to those daily chats, and when a night out turns into a night of hot sex, Olivia is hooked. But when morning comes, and they both realize the truth, things get complicated.

Can Olivia let go of her life plan and open her heart to a known womanizer? Or will she head back to Texas with a broken heart?


I'll be honest and say the first half of this book had me struggling. The ad nauseam OW hanging on the hero, or the continuous mentions of his "OW" distracted me A LOT. The title alone told me he was a WOMANIZER, I didn't need it shoved in my face over and over again. That said, after the 60% point we finally got off the OW train, and the book picked up for me.

I adored both of these characters. Olivia was just a sweetheart. Funny and honest. You really won't be able to help but fall in love with her. Callan was sexy and surprisingly sweet. I expected more resistance from him than I got. Really the relationship in this book was pretty smooth sailing. No angst at all aside from a little from Olivia's brother. These two were just really perfect for each other in every way. The sex scenes were hot. Thier conversations and banter cute. Easy peasy...as they say.

So even though I struggled a bit at the beginning to get into this one, I did end up really enjoying it by the end. So two thumbs up from yours truly.

4.5 Hot Smoker Guy Stars!

"Life sometimes doesn't run in the cycles it's expected to. We are all here for a blink. Life changes in a blink. We fall in love, sometimes, in a blink."

Forever in love with Katy Evans' books!

Callan and Olivia. Gaaah!!! I couldn't even begin to describe the sexual tension and overflowing steamy scenes between these two. I was so rooting for them from start to finish.

Olivia "Livvy" Roth was introduced in the previous Manwhore book Ladies Man and we've known her as Tahoe's little sister. When Tahoe endorsed her to his best friend's huge company to work as an intern, Olivia expected to meet a ruthless business mogul in the name of Callan Carmichael. While working there, she had an encounter with a literally hot smoker guy whom she thought as an ordinary employee (a mailman) and whom she shared smoking sessions every day and even had a one night stand with. Little did she know that the smoker guy was in fact, the very owner of the company-- Callan.

The book was basically steeped in steamy scenes after steamy scenes. Classic Katy Evans. Aaand I loved every bit of it. Callan and Olivia's chemistry was off the charts. They're both hot, success-driven, and they both understand each other's wants. To simply put, they're made for each other.

I loved that their story was not heavy on the angst and how the scenes were created to make the reader smile and swoon. It basically kept me on my toes. If you are looking for an office romance with over-the-top sensual scenes with less dramas, I believe you will love this book. You don't have to read the previous books in this series (although I recommend you to read them too because they are equally amazing!) because it is a standalone. All in all, Womanizer was another enjoyable book to devour. I'm excited about Wynn's story!

I liked it but didn't love it way too much.. Normally I really enjoy boss/intern stories and pls don't get me wrong but I didn't feel the connection between Olivia and Callan. :( But still I'm begging you please don't mind my rating, go and give a shot this book! Who knows, maybe you'll love it more than I did... ;)

Good luck! <3

Olivia Roth is a beautiful 22 yr. old woman from Texas that is about to leave home & be on her own for the first time. She's starting her first official job, and is excited to be an independent woman. Her brother Tahoe landed her an internship at one of the biggest Fortune 500 companies in Chicago called Carma Inc. it's one of the toughest raiding firms in the country, and the CEO is her brother's best friend Callan Carmichael.

 photo CC6E1571-3D10-4355-AD44-71E351D46B57_zpsoqqks3ty.jpg

Callan Carmichael is a 28 yr. old hot, smart, ruthless, sexy, unattainable billionaire bachelor. He's known for being a womanizer & a shameless player, and is the last of his friends that's still single.

Callan & Livvy meet & sparks fly. They share an instant connection & chemistry , and just click. Livvy knows as her brother's best friend Callan is forbidden to her, but she's still drawn to him, & finds him absolutely irresistible. Seeing him becomes the highlight of her day.

 photo 5EE0ECE9-B15E-47C7-92C1-DACAB343BF14_zpsyji0hcvw.jpg

Callan knows he should stay away from Livvy. He's her boss & she's his best friends little sister, but he can't stay away. His want for her becomes unbearable & soon they are acting on their intense attraction, & seeing each other in secret.

Livvy planned to do her internship for three months & go back home to Texas. She never planned on meeting a man who made her feel wanted and beautiful. A man who gave her laughter & the best sex of her life.

-This is dangerous and definitely not good for me- and I still want it. I want more of it, of Callan Bad Boy Carmichael.

-I see a man. A man who I want to love. And a man who I want to love me.

-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.

-"Your irresistible. I can't keep my eyes off you, my hands off you."

-I want everything.

 photo 747EB2F1-292F-4740-A840-B5DA5EA48DA6_zps7ivua6l9.jpg

The more time Livvy spends with Callan, the more she craves him & can't resist him. Her plan for just sex turns into more & she fears she won't get out of this without a broken heart. He shows hers tenderness others don't see, pushes & challenges her to be her best, makes her feel alive and leaves her breathless.

This man who doesn't do commitments or invest himself emotionally is suddenly finding himself wanting more with a woman. He loves spending time with Livvy & can't get enough of her. He's totally addicted to everything Livvy & can't imagine her not being in his life.

This book was amazing. It will definitely be in my top 5 list for 2016. This story was everything I love about reading. I adored Callan Carmichael and couldn't put this book down. I love this series so much & highly recommend Womanizer!

WOMANIZER: Even though this states that it is BOOK#4 within the series it can be read as a standalone.

This is my first read by Katy Evans, covers face in shame, and where to even start with my review, the beginning is so easy to get into, I cringed, I laughed, I swooned, then as the story moves along like a love struck female I was carried along on their journey.

Young and ambitious Olivia Roth has been offered an intern job of a lifetime at Callan Carmichael's firm in Chicago her home for the next three months, what was initially as a favor from her brother through his best friend Callan. Even though this favor doesn't sit well with Olivia she's going to prove that she deserves this chance on her own merits. she has plans set in stone of how she wants her life to pan out.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic I've planned on working for a company from twenty two - to twenty five, then start my own business by twenty-six, and maybe at twenty-eight, I'll meet my husband.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What starts off as innocent fun filled laughs encountered on the roof top sharing a cigarette amongst themselves turns into a hilarious, slightly forbidden, undeniable attraction that neither can deny.

Neither know who the other really is, she thinks he's just the lowly mail man in the company, he thinks she's just a girl that speaks her mind, shares the odd puff of his smoke and doesn't think anything else of their roof top encounters.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic I wonder if he has any ambitions other than being the mail guy. He's not putting out vibes of someone desperate to climb the ladder of success.

Their bond intensifies, a drink in a bar, a slow sexy dance of seduction moves from the bar to the bedroom a shame faced reality when they find out who they just slept with.

He's the boss not the mailman!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Image and video hosting by TinyPic So I slept with my boss. My boss's boss. Also my brothers friend. The guy who'd always been off limits. The womanizer everybody claims.

A slow burn, slightly forbidden taboo encounter that sizzles the sheets, spikes the heart beat and leaves you swooning over this bad boy womanizer.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

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

What happens when Olivia's three months is up? Is she the woman who will slay the bad boy womanizer? The only way to find out is to one click this on release day and find out yourself..

What I really really enjoyed about this was the slow burn aspect to the story, no angst, just a sweet story that you can get lost in. I was captivated as soon as I started it, loved reading Olivia's inner musings, from hot mailman to hot smoker man, from finding out she'd screwed the boss, this was a real goody, I really want to read the rest within this series now..Highly recommend. A light refreshing read!!

I can't believe that I haven't read this series before now but I'm glad it finally caught my attention. The brothers-friend thing is what grabbed my attention and I'm glad it made me finally give this series a chance. I adored these two characters and will definitely be going back to read the other books that I missed.

This book taught me a very very valuable lesson. Which is that a guy who smokes may smell horrendous to me in real life but holy hell they can be hot as anything in a book. Callan was so hot and I apparently need to start going out to where all the smokers go in order to find me a hot man like him. Seriously guys, it's going to happen.

Anyway, this book was good and I really enjoyed it. I haven't read nearly enough from this author so I look forward to rectifying that as soon as possible. Keeping this review short since there isn't anything that I need to rave about (beside the hot smoker thing).

Incredibly sensual and intense. Katy Evans has an amazing ability to create sensational male characters. Hot smoker guy will melt you into one big puddle.

About the plot: Olivia Roth heads to the big city. After graduating from college and the lack of opportunities in Texas, she flies to Chicago, where will take a three-month internship at the biggest company that deal with, among other things, takeovers. And where the CEO is the best friend of her big brother, Callan Carmichael.

Olivia has a detailed plan. She wants to collect as much experience as she can, and return to her city to work for the local company and then open her own. During the first day of internship, she meets hot smoker guy with whom he share a cigarette on the terrace. Attraction and longing for home pushes her towards him and soon complicate her ideal plan. Because when Olivia finds out that the sexy stranger is the Callan Carmichael, it may be too late. Even though she is trying to stay away, he will not give up so easily.

“I like talking to you, Olivia. Is that a crime?” he asks with a soft grin. “Because if it is, I should do it more often.”

My thoughts: Katy Evans does amazing two things in her books. Creates intense and unforgettable male heroes and forms an incredible chemistry between the characters. In this case it isn't differently.

The womanizer, Callan Carmichael is worthy of sin. He is raw and has this mysterious sexy aura around him. It had to be brave heroine to entrap him. Enters determined girl from Texas. There is an amazing attraction between them from the beginning. You feel it in every word and gesture described by the author. It's very sensual, and has lot of sexy scenes that burn you up. I felt this sensual electricity all over my body while reading it... the whole damn time...

“Keeping my hands off you is testing my willpower to an extent beyond my limits.” He slips his hand on my thigh, squeezing it. “I want you nightly.”

The thing that I did not liked is the feeling of disconnection in places. It could sometimes be more described. But it has a specific way of writing that makes sure everything is in tight dynamic. Still sometimes gives a feeling of disorientation.

Definitely page-turning for a long night. It has aspect of forbidden love, but is not very strong. But still it gives a good thrills.

“I’m the millionth woman in the universe who’s found her flame and realized she’s just this tiny, fragile little moth, helpless to fly away from it.”

This is not my first book from her, but the first in this series. You can safely read it as a standalone. You'll find some shots of previous relationships, but nothing that can disturb the reading. I totally recommend an interest in books of this author. It doesn't matter from which one. Katy Evans is definitely one of my best guilty pleasures.

***Quick Review:***

Series: The fourth in the Manwhore series. Can be read as a standalone.
Book Tag Tabs: Contemporary office romance, some aspect of forbidden love.
Main characters: Olivia Roth, twenty-two, southern girl. She has a business degree and now takes internship. Callan Carmichael, twenty-eight, CEO, suits billionaire, manwhore.
Secondary characters: A few scenes with the previous characters, like her brother Tahoe from Ladies Man. Also some of the future characters of this series.
Location: Chicago, also some scenes from Texas.
Sensitive topic:
Love triangle:
Next in the series? Yes. I think, Wynn and Callan's brother get their stories.
For who I'd recommend? For those who love sexy stories of reformed manwhores with forbidden theme.

3 "All In" Stars

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

I might be a minority here, rating this lower than four stars but please do not let my review sway you from reading this story. You might have an entirely different experience. I also loved aspects of it and enjoyed it mostly.

Olivia is an idealistic young woman. She has big plans for her future and realizing that she won't move forward until she has some experience she leaves her home in Texas to work at a big investment company as an intern. The company she plans on working for is known for their hostile take overs of struggling enterprises. The CEO is the best friend of her brother. She has never met him and she doesn't mind if it stays that way. On he first day she has a chance encounter with a guy on the terrace upstairs. He is smoking and she feels bold and asks him for a hit.

Callan is fascinated by the spirited young woman. They meet frequently on the terrace to share a smoke, without knowing details about each other. When they meet at a bar outside of work they can't contain their growing need for one another. One drunken night changes all when they discover who the other one is.

Again it is the heroine who I struggled with. The first third I really liked her. After that her inner monologues started to grind on my nerves. She comes across immature at times and in her mind says one thing and in the next second that all is nullified.

He takes a drag, the tip glowing bright pink as I head back to the bar. When I reach him, he offers it to me. I can’t take it, it feels too intimate now. I shake my head, and he only studies me as I drop to my seat, a little breathless. He turns his high-backed stool a bit to face me, a silence between us as he smokes his cigarette and seems to take in my features, one by one. I watch him take a hit. “I think about kissing you,” I hear myself say.

In her mind she keeps saying "This can't happen again." but she doesn't follow through. Every single time she is all over him within seconds of thinking that it is a bad idea to sleep with Callan. Her inner thoughts also get plenty of repetition. Close to finishing I was annoyed reading for the umpteenth time that she would be going home soon and so would have no business thinking about a future with her brother's friend. She also kept throwing in his face that she wouldn't want a real relationship until she was 28 and in the middle of a successful career. Only to hope for an "I love you" from Callan in the next. The repetition felt like fillers after a certain point.

Callan on the other hand was sweet. I actually expected him to have more of an edge but I didn't mind that he didn't. He put his foot down when he felt the need to but other than that he didn't push too much, waited patiently for her to make up her mind. I would have liked to hear more of his thoughts - we only got them in the last few chapters. I think it would have helped the story along to get into his mind a bit because I couldn't see why he wanted her.

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. I say the word woman, I think of you. Female, I think of you. Sexy, I think of you. Sweet, I think of you.”

While I adored Callan (despite his smoking, which I don't find all that sexy) I just couldn't connect with Olivia. Together they did have some explosive chemistry.

Like I said, you might have a completely different experience with this story so please do not let my reservations keep you from reading it. Ultimately I really liked the story line and trope.

This book was freakin awesome! It was a heartwarming romantic comedy with some good emotional moments. I was hooked from the first sentence and couldn't put it down. I love Callan & Olivia, they are the all time best book couple ever! I was totally absorbed in their story and wasn't happy until I knew they both got their truly deserved HEA. You will love the story, the flow, the sex, and the banter! One of those great books for when you need a light and fluffy reading.

4 stars

Another great story from Katy Evans! I found myself captivated from the first page and once I started it, I couldn't put it down!

The plot was interesting and I like how Olivia and Callan met! They were cute, funny and sweet! You can feel the tension and the intensity between them.I loved that they didn't know at the beginning who they were and there was a mystery around them.


When their identity was revealed, they had to decide what they wanted to do and how they really felt about each other! I loved their chemistry, they were super hot and passionate.

"Because I like the girl I met on the terrace.The one who danced for me and seduced me to the point I lost control."

The thing that made me give it 4 stars was because of Olivia who didn't win me over immediately. I didn't see her as a strong heroine and this bothered me a bit.

Overall it was a great story with steamy moments and a fantastic hero to keep your interest!

“Love is an illusion. The more you want it, the more it hides”.

Have you ever read a story and the whole time your thinking, This is one “SEXY ”read. The touch of forbiddeness with a hint of seduction had me flipping the pages in record time. I devoured this story and let me tell you, I regret NOTHING.

Olivia has always wanted to make it on her own. Being the younger sister of a successful business man, her determination to be her own person is her top priority. When she’s offered an internship at Callan Carmichael’s firm for the summer, she seizes the opportunity. Knowing that Callan is best friends with her brother, Olivia makes it known that she’s going to work twice as hard and she’s not going to accept any kind of special treatment.

Making friends in a new city is not easy especially in a well respected firm, so when she sees a hot guy smoking on the company terrace, she’s immediately drawn to him. A little conversation couldn’t hurt right? Taking a drag of his cig and loving her new found friendship is a good thing right? At least that’s what Olivia thinks and little does she know, that her new smoking buddy is actually her boss.

Callan Carmichael has always prided himself on being the best. He has a successful company, good friends, and a different woman for every day of the week if he chooses too. Being committed to one person is a foreign concept for him and knowing that he’s the last man standing in his circle of friends, has made him that more untouchable. So when he meets the hot new employee on his terrace, he knows immediately that she’s going to be the one to change his life. Being a man of few words and being highly reserved, Callan now has a lot to say when it comes to being around Olivia Roth.

This was the exact read I was looking for. Callan and Olivia complimented each so well!! He was this quiet dominant force of nature and let me tell you, when that man spoke? All common sense went through the window! And don’t get me started on those two in the bedroom. If you’ve never read anything by this author, I suggest you rectify it right now because Callan and Olivia story is not to be missed.

I happen to love books by Katy Evans. I fell in love with her writing when I met Remy in Real and I've been hooked on this woman ever since. I think the problem I've been having with the Manwhore series is that I went into it expecting the same level of intensity and was disappointed to find it lacking. It's not the book's fault because the story is fine. It's just a matter of me not adjusting my expectations. Well, I tried to do just that with this one.

And I have to say this. I'm sure there will be those who disagree with me.

There were way too many times that I wanted to slap the crap out of Olivia. In a "knock some sense into her" type of way.

Or shake her until her marbles aligned.

She drove me freaking nuts!! At one point in the story, Callan offers to take her on as his assistant. To really teach her what he knows. She OF COURSE declines. Then a bit later she says:

"I came here to work, to learn. Did I let my own perosnal prejudices and confusing feelings keep me from learning all that I can, from the best man I could possibly learn it from?

Actually don't answer that. Because this chick said a variation of the same thing more than once in this story. MORE THAN ONCE!!

Well, I gave all 4 of my stars to Callan. I loved everything about him, from his smoking (although it is such a nasty habit) to his seduction skills (bring those over her handsome) to his business acumen (teach me). What I really liked about his story is that despite the book's title and his so-called reputation, there was barely a hint of his indiscretions. Yes, women were everywhere, virtually throwing themselves on him and willing to act as human ashtrays, but he wasn't caught kissing or inappropriately fondling anyone much less encouraging them. Nice!

::3.5 Stars::

Womanizer is an edgy, sexy, fun, steamy and entertaining read told entirely from Olivia Roth's pov (except the epilogue). I really loved Callan Carmichael! He was perfect. Handsome, quiet, rich, easygoing, but he can also be intuitive and elusive as he leaves you wanting more and more.

Olivia Roth is Tahoe's little sister, with her brothers help she starts an internship at Carma, Inc. Livvy is not looking for love, she's looking for the business experience that the toughest company in the business could give her. The few days that Livvy starts her internship she meets hot smoker guy and they hit it off in a friendly, flirtatious way. I loved reading those cigarette and terrace moments, these were my fave in the book. It's only later revealed just who this hot smoker guy really is.

The chemistry between Livy and Callan was hot and I did love their moments together. I was not a fan of Liv's inner dialogue. I struggled a bit with this heroine. I swear at times I wanted to choke her! I did feel that their chemistry was lacking and a bit forced. Something was missing from this story for me. It's definitely a cliché read. I have no problems with reading this kind of storyline over and over again, but when I'm on this journey I want a deep, gut wrenching romance and a heroine that I could fall in love with and those were lacking in this book.

That extra .5 stars is definitely because of Callan, I really liked this hero and I would've loved to have read parts of this in his pov. Even though I had my issues with this one, I know for sure this can still be an enjoyable read for others. Especially if you're a Katy Evans fan.

❝I learned you can’t always count on your life plans to go your way. Sometimes some higher power somewhere has a bigger picture. Puts you where you didn’t expect to be. To learn what you need to learn. Life sometimes doesn’t run in the cycles it’s expected to. We are all here for a blink. Life changes in a blink. We fall in love, sometimes, in a blink.❞

CUTE. This book was flipping CUTE. That is all. I loved Katy's Manwhore books but I haven't picked up a book by her ever since, so it felt so great to be back into this world with these same characters. I skipped out on Ladies Man and I was about to skip out on Womanizer too but I thought, "Why the heck not", and I was reminded of why Katy Evans became one of my favorite romance authors after Manwhore!

Callan Carmichael has to be my favorite out of the three best friends. But my opinion might not even count since I didn't read Tahoe's story after all. XD Callan had me swooning right when our main character, Olivia, first meets him. I find smoking to be a bit of a turn off but goodness gracious, not when it comes to Callan Carmichael. Normally I would probably be against females taking up bad habits for their partners but let's just say that I understood where Olivia was coming from lol. As for Olivia, she wasn't anything too special but she was likable so I have no complaints! I do love the chemistry between and their steamy scenes were definitely very STEAMY.

I'm a super sucker for the best friend's little sister trope so I was ALL IN for this book! I'm really picky when it comes to romance books but Katy Evans never disappoints. I can't wait to read Wynn and Emmett's story, and even possibly meet Callan's mystery brother. ;)

If you've read any of the other books in this series (don't worry, this is a standalone so you don't have to!) you'll remember Callan Carmichael, ruthless businessman and the last man standing in the group of billionaire bachelors. I've always been intrigued by his character and was super excited to see his heroine is a new character, Livvy, who is Tahoe's sister!

It's a very much "what you see is what you get" kind of story. There's not hidden motives, everything is spelt out for the reader as you go and it's even a little predictable as far as the plot and trope go. You know from the synopsis that it's a brother's best friend type of romance, so from that alone you can generally figure out the plot.

I liked how these characters met and how their relationship grew as anonymous friends first, before turning to lovers. It felt genuine and I thought it was unique. Plus the banter and small moments of vulnerability that they had up on the terrace really helped to add some dimension to the story. I honestly think those were my favourite parts!

“For someone afraid of heights, you like living on the edge.”

I really loved Callan, I mean what's not to love? He was sweet and loyal and protective but knew his boundaries. He was determined and went after what he wanted, consequences be damned. He was a bit of an enigma, comparing his ruthless business persona to his teddy bear personal persona, but it worked well on him.

“I’ve wanted to know you since I first saw you. I wondered and wondered. But after what’s happened between us, it seems less like a good idea and more like trouble.”
“Fuck trouble. Jesus. Just fucking go out with me, Livvy.”

I never really understood or connected with Livvy as a character and it's a real shame, because I wanted to like her. She just felt so extremely immature, between her thoughts, ideas and actions all contradicting each other and even some of her monologues I caught myself more than once rolling my eyes and just wishing she would grow up. It feels (to me) like authors these days like to write about heroines in their early twenties to then justify them being more immature and unsure, but frankly I'm growing sick of it. I'm twenty three years old and like to think I'm a lot more mature than some of these characters. Basing it solely off of inner thought processes, I'd like to conclude I am.

The relationship and ultimately story line was a lot fluffier than I expected it to be after starting. In the beginning Livvy always talks about how she never feels that she can measure up or is always disappointing people, and then you hear about Callan's womanizing ways. He even admits himself that he'll never fall in love and will never be committed to only one woman. But in relation to the story line, these are then instantly thrown out the window. You glimpse Callan with another woman nearby and it's obvious that he isn't interested in her, and other than that it's never an issue. Neither of these aspects are brought up again. Even with Liffy's problems, I expected them to come into play but alas, they never did.

He looks at me—and I realize he doesn’t like our situation. He’s not the kind of man to be anyone’s dirty little secret. He’s the kind of man you flaunt.
And apparently, I’m the kind of girl he’d come clean for.

Womanizer was a quick, funny and enjoyable read which on its own is quite satisfying, but as part of the series I expected it to be more serious. A little heavier or a little darker, especially after Manwhore and Manwhore +1. I noticed this during Ladies Man as well. It was good, don't get me wrong, I read it practically in one sitting and found myself smiling along and laughing with the characters but I wasn't blown away. I liked it, didn't love it.

“Tell me to kiss you, Livvy.”
“Why would I do that?”
“Because you haven’t stopped thinking about it.”
“I have.”
“In that case, I haven’t.” He strokes a finger down my jaw. “So. How about you kiss me. For my sake.”

All in all an enjoyable read and good story, I think my expectations may have just been a little high. I would still recommend it if you want something low on angst, kind of fluffy and quick moving.

Olivia gets an internship in one of Chicago's most important business firms.True, it is owned by her brother's best friend, notorious womanizer, Callan Carmichael, but she's never met the man and shes totally motivated to thrive and succeed on her new job, and make her brother and family proud.

After a hard first day, Olivia goes into the building's terrace to clear her mind from all the day's craziness when she meets a sexy stranger, and they end up sharing a cigarette together. After that first drag and one look into his eyes, Olivia was addicted. For the next following days she found herself at the same spot craving the stranger's company paired with the nicotine hit.

Overall Opinion: This was just ok for me. I didn't necessarily go in expecting that much tbh, so I wasn't all that disappointed either. It won't go down in my favorites shelf and it probably won't be all that memorable in the long run, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Don't let the title of this book fool you! The H might've been a manwhore before the h, but he was all about her after he meets her (zero OW drama). It had hardly any drama, and the sex was pretty hot -- so there is that! It would be a good book to pick up after some heavier reads ;)

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Olivia and Callan's story. Olivia gets a job as an intern with one of her brother's best friend's company. They meet out on the terrace one day, and they don't know who each other are but the sparks fly. The end up sleeping together and then are in for a shock when they find out who one another really are. There is some dancing around each other, some funny moments, some sexy times, a little drama...and they get a HEA ending.

POV: This was told in Olivia's POV with a few short chapters in Callan's. I would appreciated having more in his POV tbh.

Overall Pace of Story: Good until the end. The ending felt rushed to me. I never skimmed, and I thought it flowed well otherwise.

Instalove: No. Instalust? Yes.

H rating: 4 stars. Callan. I liked him. He was mysterious, sweet, and hot!

h rating: 3 stars. Olivia. I liked how driven she was, but her obsession with her "plan" bugged me at times.

Sadness level: Low, no tissues required.

Push/Pull: Yes

Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry, tension, and scenes.

Descriptive sex: Yes

Safe sex: Yes

OW/OM drama: Surprisingly, no!

Sex scene with OW or OM: No

Cheating: No

Separation: Yes

Possible Triggers: Yes

Closure: This had a cute jump ahead epilogue with a HEA ending. I would've preferred for us to be given some actual time with them as an official couple before the epilogue, but that could just be me being greedy.

How I got it: It was part of my scribed subscription.

Safety: This one should be Safe for most readers.

Livvy has just left her Texas home to be a little intern in the company of her brother's friend Callan. She has never met Callan before.

But then she meets this amazing guy on the roof terrace every day after work - and of course we all know that it's her boss Callan. We know - Livvy doesn't - yet. ☺


They have this amazing chemistry. They joke with each other, laugh with each other. Tell each other things they haven't told anyone else before.

But she's only in town for three months. After that she'll be back in Texas trying to start her own company. A company that does the exact opposite of what Callan's company is doing.

Can those two people really be each other's forever-ever-after person?






This book was so adorable!!! The perfectly sexy and almost-drama-free romance!

You may first think that it's not anything new. Young girl from Texas falls for her boss in the big city. And at first she doesn't know that he is her boss. Bla Bla Bla. I've read such stories many times before.

But it's so much more than that. It's sweet and vulnerable and funny and erotic and young and mature and businessy and ugh. I just loved those two! They're perfect for each other.


They're both super smart and know what they want in their professional lives.

Of course it's not all sweet and insta happy-endish!

She's only in town for 3 months and he's a horrible manwhore who never even thought about settling down with one girl. And then she's also his buddies little sister! Lots of hurdles to jump over until Livvy and Callan can see their HEA on the horizon! But we'll enjoy every word of that time!!!


Were there some tiny things I didn't like?
Hm, not really. Maybe just that some expressions were used too much. Like, he CONSTANTLY pushes her hair behind her ear, or pushes it away from her eyes! I would hit him in the head if he were in my face like that all the time! ☺ And some people might find the story a bit too drama-free. Too uneventful. It's basically just the hero and heroine doing their courting and sexing and smoking and businessing. Not really much happens, but that's what I love about those stories. I don't need unnecessary and stupid misunderstandings and weird drama. I enjoyed just like it was! Enough adorable and sexy and great stuff happens, I don't need drama!
Oh, and maybe there were just too many cigarettes in here. In this time and age nobody should smoke anymore and I don't think authors should promote smoking. It's just a disgusting habit that needs to be removed from this planet ☺☺☺

WOMANIZER was so much more than just an adorable and erotic Boss-falls-for-Intern romance! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Callan - but hurry, he'll be sold out really fast☺☺☺

4 You can Womanize me Stars

I love Katy Evans, she’s a one-click read for me. As I saw this book, I thought two things. I thought, huh, there’s a man on the cover smoking a ciggy and I have that Britney Spears song, Womanizer stuck in my head!

This book reminded me of my youth. We all did it, we all had a ciggy in our young days. It was the social thing you do, you steal a drag from a friend and strike up a conversation.

This is Olivia and Callan’s story and is also a standalone.

The book starts really cute. Olivia is this young spunky thing and she’s working at Callan’s company. She got the job because she is Tahoe’s little sister, but she wants to make it on her own from there. We know from the previous books that Callan is a playboy. He’s the last single guy in the group and he’s kind of on his own.

Olivia meets a man on his smoke break at work, the only thing is, she doesn’t know it’s Callan!

It’s a SUPER cute story no? I like that over cigs, Call and Olivia kind of form this bond. Now, it’s not all about smoking cigs, it’s just a way for the two of them to converse and bond.

I’m not a smoker currently, in fact, I told my husband (boyfriend at the time) I would only date him if he stopped smoking (and he did), so I’m not saying, oh it’s alright to like smoking. It’s just that me and not smoking doesn’t have anything to do with my enjoyment of the book. Does that make sense?

I enjoyed that the book was light and easy to read. The angst was on the mild side, but the tension from Tahoe adds a little something to the story.

Overall, an enjoyable Katy Evans read.

3.5 - Sleeping with the boss is sexy. Stars!

The fourth book in Katy Evans’ Manwhore series brings us Callan Carmichael and Olivia Roth’s story, both likeable characters, entertaining as a couple, and the author used one of my favourite tropes in that Callan is a close friend of Olivia’s older brother Tahoe.

Having not read any of the previous books in the series, Womanizer can absolutely be read as a standalone, and characters from the previous books are included but not in a confusing way.

"I’m not the Devil… I just choose to allow some people to believe that I am."

The only thing I wonder would have enhanced my reading experience of this book would be to have gotten more of a look at Callan pre-Olivia, because for me he didn’t really live up to the moniker of Womanizer in this story. He was actually really sweet, considerate, a little snarky, plenty sexy and just a generally likeable guy.

I liked Olivia as well, she came across as pretty sheltered and a little naïve, and although it seemed pretty obvious to me who Hot Smoker Guy was from the offset, it took our guileless heroine a little longer to work out to that it wasn’t the mail-room guy she was crushing on unashamedly.

I’m ready. I’ve got a lot to prove, especially to myself. And I’m here to learn how to play with the big guys in the big leagues.

But I also found it pretty charming in that their first meeting and interactions all took place of the sharing of a cigarette, something that nowadays is quite an old fashioned, and also unfashionable concept. However, it did get a little irksome as the story progressed, in relation to the amount of page time and writing devotion that is given to the act of smoking a cigarette, whether it be one or both of them doing it.

You can see the direction the story is going to go pretty much from the offset, but for all that it was still a pretty enjoyable read, with a few funny moments, and relationship built around a genuinely likeable couple, and a healthy dose of added flavour from the secondary characters involved as well.

"A guy like you wouldn’t go by without leaving marks along the way…"

"How would you know?"

"Because you already did."

Review also posted on Confessions of a Pinay Bookaholic

Basically me when I'm reading the romantic scenes and finished Womanizer:


I devoured this book in one or two sittings and I enjoyed it very much. The story follows Tahoe Roth’s best friend, Callan Carmichael and his sister, Olivia Roth.

Olivia is a sweet, adorable, passionate and driven young lady. Raised in a silver spoon and came from a wealthy family, she wants to be independent and be a successful business woman. When her internship application didn’t go as planned, her brother asked his best friend a favor and offered her an internship in his company (Carma Inc.). As much as she doesn’t want special favors, she can’t miss a great opportunity to intern in one of the lead and largest firms in Chicago. Within three months, she’s determined to learn from the best and focus on her career.

One night at the office terrace, a hot smoker guy caught her attention. They had small conversations and easily get along sharing cigarettes. As the chemistry between them sizzles, they can’t help being drawn to each other. What she didn’t know, the hot smoker guy she’s attracted with and whom she thought was a mailman is Callan Carmichael a.k.a the CEO of Carma Inc., her brother’s best friend and a well known womanizer she must stay away.

The forbidden romance is really good. The steamy scenes are all LIT and HOT! Oh my god, Callan Carmichael is sexy, charming and irresistible. A businessman who doesn’t do relationships but he just can’t stay a

way from the spontaneous, alluring lady (he didn’t know she’s Tahoe’s younger sister yet..until one moment) he shared cigarettes with. On the heroines of Manwhore series, Olivia is probably my favorite. She’s brilliant, persistent and hardworking. I have so much respect for her when she refused any special treatments on work. Despite having a relationship with Callan, she never neglected her responsibilities as an intern and she learned a lot on his business expertise. I like the direction of their story because they didn’t deprive each other when it comes to career. It was admirable Callan saw her potential, believed in her capabilities and let her do what she wants. One thing is for sure, nothing can stop him from being with Olivia. He’s all in to be part of her life. Oh man, he’s so swoon-worthy.

Final rating: 4.5 / 5 stars

Loved It as usual for another Katy Evans book, this follows Tahoe's little sister Olivia Roth when she takes an internship that Tahoe's Best friend and CEO Callan owns. Callan is an Alpha male womanizer and even though Olivia has been warned about his reputation the chemistry between the two is just too explosive to ignore, trying to keep it business in the office and sex after work becomes harder than what they both think. Sexy and strong characters, great story line and hot, hot sex. Narrated by two of the best the talented Grace grant and the sexy Sebastian York.
