A brand new contemporary romance from New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.

He's my most delicious secret. The hot Suit I had a one-night stand with one evening. I didn't know anything about him, not even his name. Only that we shared a taxi, and he was staying at the hotel where I worked. We met in room 1103. Where he commanded not only my body but my soul. The next day he was gone and I only had a memory of him. I could still taste his kisses, feel his demanding touch. I searched for him for months. Daydreaming about him. Wondering if I'd ever find him. Until the day I find myself staring face to face with his jeweled black eyes again. He says lets keep it casual, and my heart knows that falling for this workaholic in a three-thousand-dollar suit is off the table. Because he has a secret. One that's a deal breaker for me. My Suit has a name. Ian Ford. And this is our story.

*This book is connected to Tycoon, but it can also be read as standalone.

Excerpt

My eyes lock on a third figure sitting with them. As I near, the man glances my way before quickly shifting his gaze. I continue to stare at him as I approach, and it doesn’t take long for his gaze to return to me. His large figure rises to full height as he stands to greet me, and I feel a bolt of electricity hit me in the chest as familiar eyes stare back at me.

He’s tall. Dark-haired. Gorgeous. With deep, thick-lashed eyes you want to sink into. And lips to suck on like they’re all that exists between you and heaven. I stop walking, stop breathing, because . . . he is here.

A moment passes and Bryn seems to notice my shock.

But shock doesn’t come close to it.

Because never in my whole life has my heart leapt so far and fast. It feels as if it’s ripping out of my chest. I can barely force my legs to move for fear of hearing my knees knock together. I struggle for air, but it feels like someone cut off my windpipe connecting my nose and lungs.

He wears a white dress shirt and black slacks, and his face is chiseled and brooding. The real shock lies in the intensity brewing in his dark eyes as they stay locked on mine. My heart speeds up as I hold his gaze. The city bustles around us. Making eye contact is not something I do often, living in a city of millions, but I can’t take my eyes off him.

The memory of having him inside me returns with a vengeance.

Bryn begins to introduce us. “Um. Ian, this is—”

“Sara. We’ve met,” Hot and Dirty Workaholic interrupts with a stiff smile.

Our eyes meet, and for a moment it feels like nothing else exists.

His name is Ian.

Fucking Ian, with his serious, handsome face and shiny, black hair. He’s as lit as I remember. Straight out of a Suits episode, and I am dying.

Review

Mogul by Katy Evans is a hot and passionate romance novel. Sara Davies isn’t at her dream job, which would be on Broadway, but being a hotel concierge has it’s perks. A shared cab ride with a hot, and suited, businessman turns into something more when he ends up staying at her hotel and a very passionate interaction in room 1103. Ian Ford is a driven professional who works hard, when his wife cheats on him it is something he never saw coming and then when she drags out the divorce it makes things even worse. He wasn’t looking for something or someone new, in fact he had thrown himself even more into work, but a cab ride with Sara sparks something he never expected and soon he realizes he can’t get enough.

The story has multiple divorce themes, both with Ian and with Sara’s parents. These circumstances make it hard for each of them to trust to the developing love that is growing between them. With the failures of past relationships and those around them they progress in fits and starts. I found that the issues they were grappling with seemed to be complex and real. Allowing themselves to love and then embracing it when it is in front of them is harder than having hot, passionate, nights.

Overall I enjoyed Mogul by Katy Evans. It was a novel with well developed and thought out characters and plot as well as romance, passion and fun.
