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.
a roller coaster ride of emotions, and keep you glued to the words and moments.
Overall: Stars: 4 Narration 5 Story 4
I love this series – new adult romance with a touch of edge, a dash of sexy and some wonderful characters – each one works on its own, mostly. But, trust me, you’ll want to devour them all!
Grace and Tahoe have been friends forever – friends with that crazy, off the chain chemistry that neither has dared to take to the edge, or beyond. She’s horribly broken: her self-esteem and list of bad boyfriends is longer than she is tall, but she just can’t seem to get past it. Tahoe is sexy, funny and completely in denial about how badly he wants Gina. Instead he fills his nights, and bed, with a series of one night stands – ultimately unfulfilling because they aren’t who he wants.
Neither of these two believe they have what the other needs – and when their chemistry proves too much to resist – they still are holding back and doubting. But, the little cracks that appear and the ability to share and commiserate with difficult moments, memories and experiences- will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions, and keep you glued to the words and moments.
Narration by Grace Grant is wonderful – while she doesn’t put on a ‘voice’ for each character, each one is distinct in the delivery, the pace and even the emotional overlay that is subtly added and pushes emotions AT the listener, not in an intrusive way, but one that reaches out and grabs your attention and heart. Another wonderful performance that enhances the story, and doesn’t leave me in any doubt about the characters, their emotions or their progression as a couple.
I received an audiobook copy of the title from Simon and Schuster Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
