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.

“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.
Playboy by Katy Evans is Manwhore Book #5. Wynn Watson has had a rough few months. She and her long time boyfriend broke up and now shes not sure if she’ll ever get her HEA. With all her friends getting married and having babies it makes things even harder. When the guy she was on a date with ends up “gambling her” to another player things don’t seem like they can get any worse. That is until she realizes that the other player is Cullen “Playboy” Carmichael. Gambler extraordinaire, hot as hell, and soon to be brother in law to one of her best friends, Cullen is everything she should stay away from if she wants marriage and babies, even as she has sworn off men completely.
Cullen Carmichael lives his life. It’s ups and downs and he takes care of those around him. His past has lead him to “know when to walk away” but something about Wynn makes him want to take care of her. When he saw her months before when she was still with her ex, he could see her unhappiness under the facade. When she is dropped in his lap, he knows his luck is turning for the better, but can the gambler gamble on love?
This was a fun and flirty book. Both Cullen and Wynn were very much into each other but battling wits and having fun to make it even more. Experts in their own world they start to dig into each others and find more than what they expected and the progress they go through to find a deeper connection makes you like the characters Ms. Evans has created even more. This book, while part of a series does stand on it’s own and was fun the whole way through.
Overall I very much recommend Playboy by Katy Evans, I thoroughly enjoyed Wynn and Cullen’s story and the additional details to the overall world and Carmichael family that we are given. A fun, hot, and fast read this one one I’ll definitely pick up again.
