You've seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!
We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother's best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I'd opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I'd go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn't be falling for him.
Just sex because I'd leave in three months, and I'd like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn't the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.
I loved this cover, so much so I bought the book without reading the blurb, well that and I knew I already liked Katy Evans. I’m really glad I ended up buying this book because I really did enjoy it. Normally I think the whole CEO thing is overplayed, but in this case I think it worked. Part of the reason why it worked was because our heroine, Olivia, has a family connection to our hero, Callan. It wasn’t like she was some doe eyed girl straight off the bus or something, while they may have never met before they still had ties to each other, like Callan is Olivia’s brothers best friend (another of my favorites things in books).
Truth be told my least favorite part of the book was the beginning. Olivia came off as super naive in the first few chapters, not exactly unlikable, but a little on my nerves. Plus her older brother is like super over protective, which probably contributed to her naivety. But as soon as she started her job and met the hot guy on the roof she really came out of her shell, and suddenly I liked her a lot more.
I know smoking is a terrible habit and all that jazz, but honestly sometimes a hot guy smoking a cigarette in the dark can be super hot, and Callan makes it super hot. I liked that he breaks his own rules. I liked the cute little interactions that Callan and Olivia have before they really know who each other actually are. Callan of course catches on a lot faster than Olivia, but he still continues down the path with her. Callan has a big time reputation as a womanizer (hence the title of the book) and even admits it to Olivia right at the beginning, but things are different with her. There really isn’t a lot not to love about Callan, he’s very successful, he’s a good friend, a good boss, he’s super hot, a hard worker, he’s just everything I want in a book boyfriend.
This book was such a fun read for me. Figuring out if they were going to take their dynamic between the sheets out into the real world. I loved seeing Callan encourage Olivia in her job, and I loved Olivia standing her ground about not wanting to be treated any different because of who her brother is or because she was fooling around with the big boss. I loved how hard they tried to keep things on the down low and there secret meetings on top of the terrace at night. There really wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book. The one thing I know for sure after finishing this book is that I need to go back and read the other books in this series.
