(Manwhore #3)

I admit it. I’m a manwhore…and proud of it.

But I’m not a total asshole. The women always know where they stand. They’re a booty call—nothing more. Everything out in the open. That’s my way.

Except have a secret, one that could ruin my career. A man who writes romance novels has to be perfect, like the men in the books. It’s what fans expect.

…and I’m not.

3.7 "friends to lovers" stars.

It's a solid 3.7 stars for me. I'm not going ro round it off because there were few things I didn't like about the book but overall I did enjoy this book!

-Some spoilers ahead-

The thing that bothered me a little is the typical psycho ex-girlfriend trope and a little slut-shaming going on. However, the Hero did get called out numerous times on his manwhoring ways and over the way he treats woman so it balances it out a little bit.

Another amazing book in this series!! I just loved getting to know Dimitri and Becca. Their banter is very entertaining and definitely shows their status as BFFs since high school. Hahaha. Thank goodness it doesn’t take Dimitri too long to see what is right in front of his face!! They both are hilarious and now each other in and out but still had some secrets to discover.

It is great to get some of the other brothers appearing in this story. I just adore Nik and cannot wait to learn more about M

My Thoughts on The Healing Touch

This was another must read by Apryl Baker. This one featured Dimitri Kincaid. I have been reading all the books featuring the Kincaid brothers and have loved every one of them. This one was no exception. It was absolutely fantastic. I just loved everything about Dimitri and Becca. Their friends to lovers story had me hooked from beginning to end and then I didn't want it to be over. Dimitri had so much compassion and patience with Becca. And I loved the little vu

This is the third and final book in the series, and I couldn't put it down. I read it in nearly one go ,(in bed and then the following morning!). Did I say that I couldn't put it down?

It had a similar theme to the other two books (well it is a series so that's OK ). It follows the love story of Dimitri, another of the Kincaid brothers, dealing with unrealised love and his partners and his differing anxieties.

Apryl's characters are vivid and believable, the story is romantic and very

really liked this story about Dimitri & Becca! I loved how much sexy chemistry there was between the two of them. Dimitri seemed like the biggest play boy out of all his brothers. But he came to realize how much Becca really means to him. I loved how he helped Becca with her fear. And wasn't expecting the surprise with his ex either.. that was really crazy yet awesome. I'm sad that this was the last book in this series but happy to learn that there will be another story to do with the rest o ...more

This was a nice story. Novelist Dimitri and personal assistant Rebecca go to a book signing and get together. A nice idea. I am never that keen on writers who write about writers; it seems a bit lazy. You know, easier to write about things you know kind of thing. It was a good story though. I liked how the two were brought together by their failings. Dimitri’s hotness ebbed slightly for me though every time the author mentioned his bowels. What can I say? It’s not hot. But I get why she did it. ...more

So very very good

I have enjoyed this manwhore series! Each book has a cocky bada$$ who meets his love and bends the world till his love gets her happy. This has sassy dialogue and while the couple readily admit they love each other and have since they were fifteen, it takes a while for one of them to realize it’s the HEA, not worth existing without the other kind of love. It’s an interesting journey with them. I became engrossed in the story not stopping till the very end. Can’t wait till t

This is the third book in the Manwhore series. You do not need to read the first two books to read this one!
This type of book is not something i would normally read. I am not a huge fan of romance type novels. Having said that, I can say the story moved along well and the characters were well developed. If you like romance books, you will love this one. If you are looking for an easy read book with likeable characters, grab this one, sit on the porch, and enjoy!

ps- Rebecca is my fav

I enjoyed this book but it can be so much better!
I also adore the drama but somehow it feels forced and especially the unecessary drama with Dimitri's brothers aka the Kincaids. I don't really feel it with the brothers that's why I think I'm kind of done witht his series. But I do think the author is talented and can make it big. I wish her all the luck.

I've enjoyed this series, but I don't think book 2 or 3 lived up to Touch Me Not. Don't get me wrong, I liked The Healing Touch and I got through it in a day. It kept me entertained and I liked some of the flirty banter. However, in comparison to book 1, it wasn't the same for me. Overall though it was a good series and I'm interested in the spin-off series coming soon.

Another great story!

Dimitri and Becca are so much fun! I really enjoyed the journey of Dimitri, a self proclaimed manwhore. It was especially fun to hear from the rest of Dimitri's brothers who have been introduced in the other books in the series. This was a great read!

Read this book in the boxed set. Enjoyed this series of books. Goes to show that when men meet the one there is not stopping them. Loved the drama, tight knit family that was there for a brother . Loved the narration in the first book .

I loved the dynamics between the 2 main characters. The story line kept me intrigued til the end. The female lead had anxiety issues which added a different dimension to the book. Very enjoyable.

This is book 3 in the manwhore series. Dimitri was drugged and injured while trying to protect his brother Kade's wife when a serial killer attacked (Sinner's Touch). Since the attack he hasn't gotten full movement back as the drugs seriously affected his nerves and muscles. Dimitri is a Romance book writer and calls on his best friend and assistant Becca to go with him to a book signing and he can not go alone due to his injuries (that no one knows about because - macho pride).
