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.

Wynn thought she was just playing a game with Cullen Carmichael. It started off as flirting and a little gambling. Just a few bets for fun. He needed a good luck charm and Wynn needed to get away from a broken heart. But soon the heart became involved and Wynn had no idea that Cullen wouldn’t stop until he won it all.
“His body feels like an invitation to a private party, a tasty offer of sex and sin.
And I want that taste.”
I LOVED LOVED LOVED Wynn and Cullen! This story has all the naughty flirty goodness mixed in with a side of sweet. Wynn was stuck in a rut of a relationship with Elliott that ends with her heart being torn in two. She had no idea that waiting in the wings was Cullen and his playboy antics. Although Cullen might be a “player” he definitely brought some game to winning over Wynn. It all starts off with a little bet to entice Wynn to Cullen’s playground and just swiftly ramps up into something so much more. Cullen really won me over with his flirtatious manner, “wooing” of Wynn and just determination to take care of her the way she deserved. It was almost a case of love at first sight and I fell in love with Cullen just for that. Wynn…she has such a “can do” attitude. She made me so happy that she just puts herself out there to try new things and take a risk. She really was a heroine that you wanted her dreams to come true. I was so happy to read more of the Manwhore World and touch base with my favorite characters but to have such a sexy, fun and overall happy story too? My heart was doing happy pitter patters and I smiled my entire way through Wynn’s adventure.
The Manwhore universe is EVERYTHING! I’ve been jumping up and down for Wynn’s story and I’m thrilled to say I was not disappointed. I just want more and more!
“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.
