Review - Playboy by Katy Evans




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.

Cullen Carmichael is just as smooth as his fine brother, Callen.  It didn't take much for me to fall in love with Cullen. What started out as a game, turned quickly into something more. Cullen being the gambler he is, was certainly up for the challenge and he upped the anti with Wynn. 

Wynn is on the rebound after a breakup with her long term boyfriend after four years.  One night at an underground poker tournament, sent her life on a tailspin.  How could one guy how this effect on her?  The mysterious silver-eyed gentleman, imprinted himself on her only after being in her presence for a few hours. 

When attending her best friend's wedding, said mystery man's identity was revealed.  What started out as a moment of attempting to make her ex jealous at the wedding, set a game in play between Cullen and Wynn.  Problem is, Cullen is very good at getting what he wants. He always has a poker face on. He knows when to fold, and when to play. And he certainly enjoy playing with Wynn.

This was a GREAT read. Wynn and Cullen had a raw connection from the moment they meant.  Playing games can be fun. Gambling can be dangerous, but you have to be willing to take the risk. Both Cullen and Wynn were willing to.


“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.

7 win at any cost
