❤❤LADIES MAN by Katy Evans 3.5ish star review ❤❤

My rating: 3-3.5 of 5 stars

Tahoe Roth.

Irreverent, cocky, playful and naughty.
He’s not the guy you date.
He’s the one night stand.
The one your mother warned you about.
The one your body craves.

You’d think the man who called me succulent would want to strip me down and spread me out on his bed—like he’s done with countless others.

But he passed on my offer….

Just like I’d once passed on his.

He’s wary, like I am.

He’s broken, like I am.

And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole. 

Tahoe and I are strictly friends.

So I distract myself with other men.

He doesn’t think my new man is good enough. This blond blue-eyed beast doesn’t think any man is—himself included.

But the more time we spend together, the more confused I feel. 
I'm trying to open myself to love.

Yet I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is Tahoe Roth.
The one man who will surely break my heart.

A sexy new Manwhore series standalone contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans. 

I need to sit and take a breath before I write this review because I'm all sort of worked up. I had really really high expectations for this book, and I honestly don't think that it lived up to them. after finishing saint and Rachel's story, I expect that same type of experience - strong emotions, strong story, emotional pull, fully invested in the story, absolutely addicting. I don't feel like I got that here.

it fell short for me. it just did not sit well with me. we know Tahoe is a ladies man and screws around alot. i knew that going on. but having Gina witness it as she is pining after him, just didn't sit well with me. and he did it for the whole year ,while apparently wanting her.. it just.. doesn't jive. all while she was with a boring meh boyfriend. again.. that doesn't jive with me.

they did build this great friendship, but after a while I was like okay.. she's obsessed with him. I get it. all the while nothing happens between them yet.. he had feelings all along and we never knew because he was sleeping with every woman in town. it got old. all the sudden Bam! he really has feelings for her and it's all good.

finding out why Tahoe slept around originally was surprising and definitely not something I expected. it opened up his character a little. but I still don't feel like we got to know a ton about him or really connect with his character.

I feel like the story of Tahoe and Gina could have been so much more, much like Saint and his turn around for Rachel. it just fell short for me.

I gave this 3 stars
