Finding love in The Big Easy is a gamble … especially when he’s your new boss.

Event planner Samantha Masson had sworn off alpha men after a nasty divorce. The last thing she was looking for was a man with an ego bigger than his bank account. Too bad that was exactly what she found when she spent a wild night in the arms of a masked stranger.

Mr. Big Ego is book three in the Dirty South series by Kat Addams. This book can be read as a stand alone. It’s my very first book by this author!

Judith D Collins, Online Marketing Consultant

Victor Beaumont is thirty five years old and is the CEO of New Orleans largest rum distillery, Fleur-De-Lis. This wasn’t Victor’s dream in life, to be the head of his family’s business. But none of his other brothers were interested. He was the only one willing to step up. Victor devoted everything to the company with the help of his somewhat curmudgeo

Book 3 in the Dirty South series and the second that I have read from this author and I loved it. Each book can be read as a standalone. Loved Samantha and Victor. They had great chemistry between them. This book will have you laughing so much. You are going to have a smile on your face when you are finished with this book. I can’t wait to read more from this author. Great read. Highly recommend it.

I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Kat Addams, ‘Mr. Big Ego’.

As a Hidden Gems ARC reader I received a free copy and promised an honest review. Here it is.

Rating: 4 stars (of 5).

In general: From irritating, pretentious boss to lover.

Main characters:
- Samantha Masson.
She’s an ambitious, talented event planner. After her break-up with a cheating husband, she works very hard to pay the bills and to save money so she can buy a nice home to replace the noisy apartment with the irritating neighbor in which she lived after her divorce.

Uniquely captivating!
From the characters to the story to the writing style nothing is cookie cutter. Everything about this book is unique. Samantha is truly quirky with her outlook on life accompanied by her obvious joy of simply living. Victor is closed off because of people using him for his wealth. After her divorce from an absolute louse, she is reluctant to try again. Amazing characters and story are brought to life by her writing skills.
I’m ready to read the first two books in this series.

Get ready to laugh and be entertained. Victor and Samantha are dancing around each but their feelings do not lie. She is a bit skeptic since her divorce and for Victor he wears mask throughout life because he knows that people only see him for what he can give or do for them. Being with Samantha is different. Will he slip off that mask before he loses the woman that could be his happily ever after? I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

This was one hell of a roller coaster ride. Samantha and Victor's story was funny and sexy. This author has such a way with words that had me oohing and aahing and laughing so much. The two main characters had such chemistry and the sexy times were hotter than hot. I loved the secondary characters as well. I hope there's a story coming out about Victor's older brother and Lisa. I would love to read about all the clownish fun they had.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

I got an early copy from hiddengems. Thank you for the opportunity. I really enjoyed this read, it was a little fast paced, but worked out well. The banter made me laugh, the dialogue got a little cheesy in places but that to me made it appealing. Even though it says its in a series it can be a standalone. I had not read the previous books but i think id like to now. Ill be looking forward to reading more from this author.

Fantastic billionaire romance. This is an entertaining story and the blurb gives readers a gist of what to expect. There are characters you’ll like and other characters not so much. There is plenty of angst, humor, and steamy times - hot! I received a complementary copy via Hidden Gems and chose to write a review. I look forward to reading future books by Ms. Addams.

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

Kat Addams is a new author to me, and she didn’t disappoint in this unique and steamy billionaire boss to lover romance! Mr Big Ego is the third standalone book in the Dirty South Series and surrounds Samantha an uptight, pretentious event planner and her egotistical, too hot for his own good boss Victor.

Why am I not surprised I snorted coke and choked on my Reese’s while reading a book from Kat Addams? Mr. Big Ego is her best one to date for me. A book that is based in NOLA and has plenty of shenanigans. What could go wrong? Victor the bada$$ owner of Fleur-de-Lis brewery I was totally smitten with his character. He was hilarious and let’s just say I will never think about a swirly ever the same ever again. What really made the book enjoyable was Samantha I related to her so much on a personal ...more

Can I tell you the only thing that I regretted when I asked for this book? I didn't know that it was the third in this series!!!

Mr. Big Ego (Dirty South #3) is just as wild, funny and crazy as Kat is herself. This is an enemies to lovers & workplace romance of wild & outlandish measure. I friggin loved it. Intermixed between the craziness of hot clowns, sexually explicit parrots, Mardi Gras, halloween parties of epic proportions, wrestling masks and crazy ex girlfriends is an equally steamy and sweet romance between Samantha and Victor. Two completely opposite people who have intense chemistry. But do they want the same ...more

Mr. Big Ego is Victor Beaumont, who is running the family business, Fleur-De-Lis, which is the biggest rum distillery in New Orleans. Unfortunately, it wasn't his dream to run it, but his brothers had no interest in it whatsoever, so he made the sacrifice. Samantha Masson owns her own event planning company, but was still trying to get it off the ground, with Victor not only her biggest client, but biggest pain in her behind, as all of his requests were just ridiculous. She's never met him, but ...more

A Great Millionaire romance. The characters are funny and their story kept me smiling, laughing and happy throughout. Samantha is a sassy, headstrong event planner who was hurt in the past by an egotistical ex-husband. Thus she vows to stay away from alpha powerful males. Especially men like the arrogant Victor Beaumont, her major client. Victor appears to be a powerful, hard nosed playboy on the outside but he hides his true self to the world. But during a masked Halloween party, these two meet ...more

A light, steamy rom com with lots of craziness to add to the fun. Samantha & Victor are such fun characters, that have a sexy banter so beautifully written.

Kat Addams delivers an entertaining and steamy rom-com in Mr. Big Ego which is the third standalone book in the Dirty South Series.

Samantha & Victor have amazing chemistry, the banter is witty and sexy, and their overall relationship is fun. There is just the right amount of emotion, angst and awkward moments to make this story one that will have you laughing out loud!

This is my first book from Ms. Addams and certainly not my last!

Victor and Samantha enjoy a hot and steamy night together, only to figure out it should have never happened. But what happens when that one night gets under your work it out. And boy did they, lol. Enjoyable characters with a great storyline.

Victor and Samantha are the kind of characters to help you out after a rough day. They have a uniqueness and are far from perfect. The humor, heat and just how each scene and characters are described make Kat a one-click author.

I loved getting to see their hidden sides, to explore the craziness and climb mountains to make their romance shine like a beacon. I received an ARC for an honest and voluntarily review.

Victor is Samanthas pain in the butt boss that has extremely hard demands for his parties that make her jump through hoops to complete! Little does she know that her impression is completely wrong and he’s actually a friendly guy who’s a big joker at heart.

I really enjoyed this book it was a quick easy read with characters you can love and root for. Grab your copy today you won’t regret it!

Having never read anything by Kat Addams before this book took me by surprise. First of all I wasn’t expecting it to be the absolutely over the top fun fest it was! I mean seriously, it had me laughing, rolling my eyes, snorting and wanting to reach into my Kindle and slap a couple of people upside the head HARD (I mean you Sara and Malcolm!).

If you are looking for a romance that has a ton of humor, plenty of heat, quirky characters, and one hell of a good time, then you need to read this book! You should really read all of Kat’s books, but you can start here. Mr. Big Ego is the story of a wealthy playboy named Victor Beaumont and an event planner named Samantha Masson. The location is New Orleans, so you know some crazy stuff is going to go down, like talking birds, crazy limo rides, and secret identities. There is never a dull mome ...more

If you are looking for a sweet but hilarious book that pulls on your heart strings, Mr. Big Ego is the book that you need to read right away. Our leading lady has lady balls even if she is a bit hesitant in the romantic department and our leading man has more layers than an onion. Victor Beaumont puts on a mask in an effort to charm the masses, but when things start getting real, will he be able to pull it off?

All in all, Mr. Big Ego was a fun read with a wicked sassy side that had me laughing o

I am torn about this book. There are some parts I enjoyed and others not so much but as this is a new author to me I’m giving this book a 4 star rate. I think the author tried for humour especially within the ranting dialogue but for me, some of it just fell flat. Maybe it’s a generation thing and I just didn’t get all of the humour although, there was some funny moments. The story centers around Samantha and Victor. Samatha is an event planner who ends up sleeping with her boss Victor. At the t ...more

Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well.
I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. You'll thank me later!

The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting. Add in drama and passion and you have a good read.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Mr. Big Ego by Kat Addams is book Three in the Dirty South Series. This is the story of Victor Beaumont and Samantha Masson. I did think this could be a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Samantha had a painful divorce and has since concentrated on her event planning business. Samantha has a event for Victor Beaumont but works with his assistant Sara. Samantha has been picked to do the Beaumont Halloween gala. While there she meets a masked man and of course they have a very hot encounter. Vi

This is my first book by Kat Addams and I feel like I am late to the party. But this is something I vow to rectify asap.
Victor and Samantha are both quirky in their own way, and both had me laughing out loud numerous times.
Their relationship starts off with a bang - literally. And from then on they couldn’t keep their hands to themselves or stay away from each other.
Add in a character named Sara, who I absolutely loathed but she did add to the story, I was enthralled by this book from start to f

Perfection....this is what Victor Beaumont expects for all his events. As his event planner, Samantha never fails. Will she also succeed as his lover? Perfection is hard to come by when masks are worn and someone on the outside looking in is determined to ruin everything. This is the first book I have read by this author but I will be looking for others.
