➳A sexy standalone filled with an abundance of chemistry and admiration towards Noah and Becka...

➳I am keeping this review short and sweet because my infatuation with Katy's writing is one that has never been diminished no matter what. There are a few book here and there that are not five stars for sure, but no matter what, I am never disappointed with the results. MUSE is no exception, and with the raw passionate chemistry that both characters, Noah and Becka, seem to have, it's a no brainer

Katy Evans has yet again delivered another wildly entertaining and steamy romance. At times, MUSE could even be considered a romantic comedy. It was light on angst, heavy on the schmexy a

She thought she could absorb everything the city had to offer, and the change of scenery would give her inspiration. Unfortunately she was still suffering from writer's block, and now she's heading back home. S

So good!!!

This book was great! I loved the setting, it was pretty unique. It makes me want to travel and see if I can find romance at an airport.

Noah and Becka are so perfect for each other and their chemistry is off the charts. Noah is so sexy and even though he’s a Hollywood star he’s pretty chill and down to earth. Becka was amazing too. She’s a romance author, looking for her elusive muse and boy does she find it.

This was another winner by Katy Evans. I just love the way she wr

Yes, it's not über-intelligent-literature. It's a tiny little bit ridiculous in its insta-ness and its can-something-like-that-happen-to-real-people?-ness.

I loved Noah and I loved Rebecca. I didn't mind the insta-attraction at all. I loved the whole idea that this falling-in-love thing takes place over only 2 days - in an airport and hotels and New York City. I adored their talks, their adventures, the sexiness, the laughter

“Fuck the Some Day. Let’s do the Right Now.”

Noah and Becka meet in an airport when they both miss their flight. He ends up helping her try to find her laptop when she realizes it's missing. Becka is really affected by him and he just loves the realness of that but he's always trying to make a move on her.

I loved how much they got to know each other and how in sync they were. However, it kind of drove me crazy with everything happening in a few days especially that first day/night. I also

Oh gosh I loved this one. So much!!!! Such a fun, sweet read. Becka & Noah meet in an airport. Sparks fly. Scavenger hunts, lost belongings and chemistry off the charts made this a hilarious and sexy read. I was smiling the whole time I read this one. A love story about stolen moments & taking a chance on more. Definitely recommend.

OMG, Katy Evans delivered EVERYTHING I need in a contemporary romance! Muse is a game changer, because as much as I love her books, Real had been my one and biggest love but now, Noah and Becka made sure to top it! This story is simply so amazing! It was entertaining, sexy as hell and also had a few raw emotional moments. A totally drama-free story about life, fate and decisions.

Words can’t describe how much I love these two! Noah totally stole my heart and Becka is my new BAE! I love, love, lov

Fast pace book, insta-lust/love with a lot of good Karma in the mix!

The story is nice and sweet, but is so rushed... And Becka drama, drama, drama was annoying AF.

Katy Evans is a beast. Every single romance she writes manages to utterly leave me speechless. I am telling you, every thing she writes will always be flawless. I do not know how she writes amazing romances but whatever she does it, she needs to do it all the time. Her romances are certified platinum is my eyes. Her writing leaves me completely and insanely in love. Every book just radiates a special magic that stuns me deeply. Just like Muse. Man,

Katy Evans absolutely slays every single fucking time she puts the pen to the paper. She creates beautiful, addicting, unforgettable, breathtaking worlds that leaves you with hearts in your eyes and love on the brain.

Muse is her latest standalone novel in the Manhattan series and it is not a book that can be missed... best that this series has delivered yet! Sweet. Sexy. Fun. Entertaining. Super captivating. All the feels. Katy packed some serious punches to the heart that left me breath

I adored this storyline, set mostly in airport this story is full of just cute moments. Rebecca is a writer and Noah is an actor both of them have missed their flight and end up spending hours together at the airport.

Noah was charming and even had me chuckling with his relentless pursuit of Rebecca. He just kept pushing her buttons and wouldn’t leave her alone but I loved that about him. Rebecca is just

This was a sweet story and a quick read. Katy Evans is one of my favorite authors and she surprised me with this cute and funny contemporary romance. I loved the witty, sexy and flirty banter, the emotional pull of two strangers afraid to put their hearts on the line. I loved the characters, their quirks and insecurities, their honesty. They really connect on an emotional level, not just physical. Their romance could be fleeting because it’s instant. Even though I’m not a huge fan of inst

This book was awesome. It’s a fun, flirty sexy story of two strangers meeting at an airport and being stuck together while waiting for their flight. Katy Evans made you want to read this book in one sitting. I loved the setting of the book and it made it that much more interesting with them being stuck in an airport. I couldn’t get enough of the banter between Becka and Noah. They feed off of one another’s energy and pushed the other

Muse by Katy Evans is a great addition to the Manhattan series. Totally a standalone but still part of that world, Muse is a funny, sexy, fast paced story. Becka and Noah are perfect together!

I’m not a fan of insta-love but I do get insta-lust. I mean we’ve all experienced it. I love the book premise. Imagine catching someone’s eye across a crowded room, feeling a connection, attraction and acting on it. Noah and Becka meet in JFK, after missing their flights. Sparks fly. They feel something an
YES YES YES!! This book was awesome! It was a nice quick read with absolutely 0 drama or angst. I loved every part of it (aside from the (gag) curls). This was pretty instalove-ish but also not really because of the connection they had. It was beautiful. I will definitely reread this and it is not something I do very often.

Overall - 4.5/5

Muse was a quick and delicious story by Katy Evans. It was sweet and sexy and had terrific banter. I loved Becka and Noah and could not get enough of their connection.

I found this story to be funny, romantic and basically a story of fate and chance meetings. I thought Noah was sexy and alpha but had a sweetness to him so unlike a lot of heroes we see nowadays. Likewise Becka was sassy and blunt and a total delight. I loved their fiery chemistry and banter and their sexytimes was hot af!

“It’s never the place. It’s always the person.”

Oh my... You must know by now how I love Katy Evans and her writing. I can't help it, I just love her. Muse is a bit different from what she's written, in the way that the story takes place in a very short amount of time. With that being said, I was pulled into the story right from the start. It is sexy, sweet, fast paced and filled with loads and loads of feels.

Muse is a charming, drop-dead-sexy and thoroughly entertaining romance that might tempt you to purposely miss your next flight. Becka and Noah were having particularly bad days even before they missed their flight, and now they’re stuck in the airport for 16 hours, waiting for their next opportunity to get home.

I loved everything about the fun and sexy read! Noah and Becka are two people that are completely opposite, but they totally work together as they even each other out!

When they both are stuck in NYC thanks to missed flights, the fun begins. They're drawn to each other and Becka, a romance author, needs a new "Muse" for her next book and Noah fits the bill perfectly!!!

I absolutely devoured this book in one go. Katy Evans always surprises me with her infinite talent in creating stories that are thoroughly entertaining and never disappointing. Muse is not a fast paced story but its flow is perfect for a love story without all the drama of some love stories. It’s just two people colliding in each other’s lives when their own lives are not running as expected.

The characters Noah and Becka have an instantaneous attraction to another. Noah is a sexy actor with a c

Couldn’t. Put. It. Down. Muse had everything I love about Katy Evans’ writing, all in one place: Explosive chemistry, solid plot, characters you can’t help but adore, and a romance that is so right and so honest, you just know the HEA will be nothing short of spectacular.

When it comes to romance, if Katy Evans writes it, then I’m there. And I know I’ll have a fantastic time with whatever she cooks up for us fans. With Becka and No
