Playboy by Katy Evans
Publication Date: July 29, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.
It started as a game.
We flirted. We played. Most importantly—we won.
Then I discovered who he was: Gambler. Famous playboy. Silver-eyed player who never plays to lose…
And my best friend’s soon-to-be brother in law, Cullen Carmichael.
He needed a good luck charm, I needed a distraction.
So we made a gamble and set off for Vegas—but pretty soon—I was in too deep.
My heart, soul, and body weren’t supposed to be part of the deal.
But somewhere between big wins and long nights, my house of cards started to tumble.
What was this devil with those piercing eyes doing to me?
I’d given up on love, but the wicked, all-in Cullen Carmichael was upping the ante and wouldn’t stop until he’d won it all.

“So you just kissed me because you wanted to.” I speak on a breath.
“Very good. You’re perceptive. Intuitive.”
I realize he’s teasing me in that low, terribly rumbly voice and I wish he would smile at me.
He takes my hand and fingers my palm with his thumb as he leads me to our suite.
I’m sizzling where he touches me, nervously prying my hand free when he leads me into the biggest, most spectacular two-bedroom penthouse suite I’ve ever seen. Not that I’d seen one before in person, only movies.
There’s a kitchen area, and windows from floor to ceiling. A living room, a pool table, gold brass chandeliers, a brown-and-beige-patterned carpet, dark woods, Italian leathers. Gorgeous! I could move in here.
Now I see the appeal but won’t admit as much.
Thinking of our bet, I pay attention to the art on the walls. It’s expensive. I can tell by the numbered print and the signature. Painters with indecipherable and artistic signatures are often the artists to watch. It’s like they know from the moment they paint their first work that they’re on to something big, something that will distinguish their work from all others.
I wish Cullen loved art as much as I do. Maybe I could drag him away from the tables to a local gallery.
“Wow. I could just live he—” I spin around and bump into his big warm body, and he bends his head and kisses my words right out of me.
Kisses me stupid. Kisses my toes curled. Kisses my brain blank. Kisses my heart crazy.
4 out of 5 ‘Classic Katy’ Stars
First off I’m going to say that even though this is a fifth edition in the Manwhore series, it can totally be read as a standalone. Having read previous stories only helps with some insight or deeper understanding to situations but is no way necessary. Now on to the review.
I totally enjoy reading Katy Evans books because they are so consistent. Usually her books have men that are single focused on the one girl that does it for them and women who have imaginations that run wild with reasons why it won’t work and then after everyone pulls their heads out their asses it’s a happily ever after. And I’m not saying any of this as a bad thing. Oh no. I love this about her books. That even though they are a little predictable, I love that I know the man is going to have eyes for his woman only, and I love that the steam between the main characters always runs hot hot hot. The predictability is kinda what I needed at the moment. Of course there are some curve balls thrown in there but for the most part I love that I know what I’m getting. It’s always great to dive into a Katy Evans novel and enjoy every single morsel she has to offer.
Cullen and Wynn’s story was just another one of Katy’s stories to add to my “loving that I read this” collection. The angst – oh the angst- was just perfection. I mean how often do two people have the self control to go so far with a person that you’re craving just to stop and start all over again!! I mean dayum!! The self control! It was like ninja warrior self control! And although there are challenges for Cullen and Wynn, I just LOVE the way that Cullen pursues Wynn. I’m telling you, there is something about a man on a mission to claim his woman…*dreamy sigh.*
I have to say that I haven’t read this entire series but I have read most of them. They are all fantastic in their own way. Playboy is just another edition to this great group of stories. Get ready to be wooed.
