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.

Howwwww do I always find myself jumping into series a few books in? I’ve been reading Katy Evans for a few years now and for some reason, this series has completely slipped by me. Playboy is the first book I’ve read in the Manwhore series and I’m absolutely in love with Cullen and Wynn. I’m quite the fan of Katy Evans and will read just about anything she writes. And I couldn’t wait to dive into this one, it was one of the moments when I dropped everything I was doing when this book popped into my kindle.
These two are just sizzling off the pages from the very beginning, which made it one of the books that you can easily read in one sitting. Yes, their connection and chemistry is instant and absolutely hot. But thanks to that dual POV, we get to see into the mind of Cullen and we learn more about his attraction towards Wynn and when it actually began.
Now I’m not a huge fan of gambling and had the initial idea that poker for him was some sort of addiction. And I didn’t want to the story to go towards the direction of where he’d be choosing his profession over Wynn. It didn’t surround that one bit, it’s pretty evident what/who he’d choose if it ever came down to that. Cullen was such a surprising character because he’s a ladies man after all, so I was curious to see how he was going to win Wynn completely. They’ve got little bets going on during their time together and you’ll be eager to know who wins in the end. And when it comes to Cullen, there’s definitely a whole lot more than meets the eye.
What started out as bets turned into something real and rather unexpected. Can the “playboy” change his ways and make Wynn his end game? Will Wynn throw everything to the wind and try to capture Cullen’s heart?
Prepare yourself for a read that’ll completely capture your heart, it’s steamy and downright sexy!
“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.
