Overview

Playboy by Katy Evans

A sexy new standalone 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.

I absolutely loved Playboy!! Cullen won me over from the beginning, their chemistry is through the roof. Katy definitely out did herself with this one. Wynn and Cullen's story was amazing she gave him his winning streak back, his life back and in return he was willing to let her go so she could find hers to.

Unbelievable! Just when I thought Katy Evans couldn't create a more alluring hero, she blew me away with Cullen Carmichael! Hot damn, this man was dee-lick-a-licious! I devoured Cullen and Wynn's story! Their story is EVERYTHING! The storyline captivated me from the very beginning and left me salivating until the very end. Their chemistry and the sexual tension between them was off the charts. I did not want to put this book down. No adulting during this read! I highly recommend! ♥ Review by Lys

Another spectacular story and addition to the Manwhore series. Cullen is the dreamy playboy gambler and alpha male that this author knows how to write so very well. I felt like I was reading a poker game the entire way through. The writing in here was and organized chaos. I don't know if I can explain that well, but it was written in a very back and forth manner with banter between the two characters, Wynn and Cullen. But it was just like watching a poker game, with a lot of heat and angst thrown in for good measure. Wynn is coming off the break-up with Emmett that has left her in a pretty bad state. She also found out news that has totally upended her future life plans. She's turned in to a serial dater and a love or happily ever after skeptic. She's off men. But then she walks into a poker game with a date and everything changes in the blink of an eye. Cullen is Callen's big brother. We met him in Womanizer briefly. Him and Callen grew up in different homes becasue they each chose a parent to live with when they divorced. He's a gambler, a playboy, and an hot alpha male all wrapped up in a very nice package. When he gambles on something, he gets what he wants and he set his sights on Wynn way before she even knew he existed. He just patiently waited and bided his time until she was available. Their relationship started on a bet and continued on bet's throughout. They were both at their best when they each had something to work for to win. But Wynn didn't want to believe she was wanted, and that's for a couple of reasons, but I'm not giving that part away. The angst and sexual tension was at an all time high throughout this book. I just sat and simmered through half the book waiting on the main fire works. Once they finally came together, it was an atomic explosion and worth every second of the build up. This is definitely one hot couple that couldn't keep their hands to themselves once they finally crossed that line. It went from hot, to Hot to HAWT! If you've read any of the other books in this series, you definitely don't want to miss this one. If you haven't read this series yet, what in the world are you waiting for? Another great addition and a favorite series for me.

Fabulous. This story surprised me several times as I got to experience Wynn and Cullen, an unlikely pair. Wynn has given up on ever finding the one. She has been in several relationships and the last one, well, sort of shattered her when Emmett just let her go. Now, there is more to the story which is gut wrenching for Wynn. When she ends up at an underground poker game and is ‘sold’ as part of the bet to Playboy, well, she feels she’s hit the all-time low. Of course, she didn’t recognize Playboy as her best friend’s brother-in-law, Cullen. Cullen is a professional gambler and everyone sees him as a ‘player’ in all areas of his life. His fascination with Wynn, his new luck, is all consuming but Wynn needs a distraction so when they make a bet, she goes with him to Vegas. There are so many layers to this romance that starts out as a fling based on a crazy bet. I loved that they both really want love in their lives but have struggled to find it. There is a beautiful freedom and joy when they are together that was fun to experience. But the ultimate is when Cullen gives Wynn what she truly desires and doesn’t believe she will ever have, that was pure magic.

A Sinful Playboy named Cullen is the right way to spend your Hot Summer Days with. Be ready to place all your bets for a sexy, alpha male who even though you know he is all wrong to love, you won't be able to resist him just like Wynn couldn't. I literally loved reading this book because Author Katy Evans gave us another book couple to fall in love with. The chemistry of Wynn & Cullen was amazing! There is plenty of love, sexy times and drama to keep you entertained. I liked that Cullen for being the kinda guy he is , he is soo taken with Wynn that he surprised me with the way he shows her that he wants to be with her more than she is wanting to be! Oh and be ready for some serious unexpected surprises! GO get this book & find out if Wynn can resist the irresistible Cullen!

I was so excited to be back with one of my favourite series and Playboy which is book 5 in the Manwhore series did not disappoint in fact I want to say it’s one of the best to date and I want to claim Cullen as mine........ Wynn Watson loves art she has her own gallery some great friends but she finds herself missing something she is the only single one in of her group of friends and after her four year relationship ended she has started second guessing herself and everything she does. Cullen Carmichael is a hot professional poker player and he goes by the nickname of Playboy a name he got because that’s exactly what he is could a week in Vegas with the Playboy be just what Wynn needs to get her life back on track or will the week together end up turning both their life’s upside down........ Once again Katy Evans gives us a story that flows characters that have charisma and plenty of witty banter. Wynn and Cullen are perfect together the attraction was instant the chemistry is sizzling and I’m so glad they got the HEA they both deserve. This for me is a must read book and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves romance mixed with perfect amount of passion and banter.

I wasn’t sure if I would like this story but boy was I proven wrong. This has turned into my favourite of the lot! It had all the feels with an emotional turn after twist through the pages. And the sexual tension and chemistry between them? I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t prevalent from the first chapter!!! *fans self* But ultimately it was how they bettered the other and became one amazing unit/team that I loved to see. Their trust and confidence in one another to be the one person they needed to be for each other. I’d go all in for Cullen Carmichael that’s for sure. 100% recommend.

Well, I never thought anyone would dethrone Remy as my favorite Katy Evans H. But Cullen might have taken the title. I LOVE THIS MAN!!! Truly, deeply, madly. I know I sound like a teenager but that’s how much I loved this book and the characters. And that was unexpected. I always like her books but this one — Wynn and Cullen are a perfect match and I’m completely jealous of her LOL. Cullen is called Playboy, but once he sees Wynn, he’s mesmerized by her. He wastes no time romancing her, and boy is he hot!! Wonderful story and one of my favorites of this series.

In both his personal and professional life, Cullen Carmichael is the ultimate player, so it doesn’t come as a surprise when he wins a beautiful woman in a bet, even if she was with another guy, but what is surprising is when Cullen invites his good luck charm to go with him to Las Vegas - a place where the stakes are even higher and the ultimate prize might just be the one thing neither of them had thought they wanted. Uncharacteristically, Wynn Watson takes a chance and agrees to head to Sin City with her best friend’s soon-to-be brother-in-law, Cullen, notorious playboy, gambler, and bet winner. Wynn doesn’t see her decision as that much of a risk because she plans to guard her heart, and the trip allows her to have fun and let loose, which since her breakup, she hasn’t felt like doing. Who would have thought, though, that the playboy would want to do anything but ‘play,’ forcing Wynn to go all in or fold and give up what might be the greatest and most fulfilling risk of her life. I’m a huge fan of Katy Evans’ Manwhore Series, especially when she provides readers with insight about previous characters from the series, and while I did feel like Cullen and Wynn’s story was a bit too predictable, it didn’t really take away from my enjoyment because the hero and heroine were incredibly likable and I liked watching them circle around each other and play off how they felt about one another until they could no longer deny their feelings. I also really liked how Cullen treated Wynn, helping her see just how amazing she is and how much she deserves in life and in love and through his words and actions, readers also see just who Cullen is beneath the suave and sexy playboy. Vegas, the setting for most of Playboy, is perfect for the risks Cullen and Wynn are taking, even if the outcome has no way of staying in Vegas due to their responsibilities back home. With Vegas as the backdrop, anything goes and let me tell you, Katy Evans makes sure Cullen and Wynn gamble with more than just money. Playboy is a sweet and sexy ready that has the hero and heroine taking the biggest risks of their lives in a variety of ways, meaning that once these two go all-in, hopefully there won’t be a winner and a loser but two people winning it all. 4 Poison Apples

6 Stars!!! TOP READ LIST OF 2018 You’d have to live under a rock to not know who, or what, a poker shark is. So, as everyone knows, a poker shark quickly studies their opponents to detect any tells and/or patterns they have, to strategize, and go in for the kill. They understand the game, all the risks, and they’re in it to win the war and not the small battles. Playboy features Cullen Carmichael, the ultimate poker shark, bidding his time before going all in. I loved this story, the fifth book in the Manwhore series, and the best story in the series as far as I’m concerned! This gem is going on my TopRead list; I’m still happy sighing, days later, over this amazing couple! After breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, Emmett, Wynn Watson has decided to try dating again. When Carson, her new date, takes her to an undercover, and probably illegal, high stakes poker game she’s convinced it might be the worst date, ever. He’d heard the best poker shark in Vegas would be there, someone called Playboy, and Carson wanted to play against him. Wynn’s really not happy when he runs out of chips and Playboy wants him to include her as part of the pot. Of course, Playboy wins the hand, and Carson leaves her there. “Wow, my luck with men has hit a new low.” Cullen Carmichael’s known as Playboy, a professional poker player who lives in Las Vegas. He recognized Wynn as soon as she and her date approached the table; his twin brother's fiancé is one of her best friends, and the lucky player just got luckier. He first laid eyes on her when she was still dating Emmett, and had been attracted to her, despite knowing she wasn’t available. Cullen’s in town for the wedding and now that Emmett’s no longer in the picture he’s decided to play a game for keeps with Wynn. He'd lost some of his mojo recently and now he thinks Wynn might be his lucky charm. So Cullen places a bet with her, he’s sure he’ll win, and Wynn takes him up on his offer. It’ll be fun and games and Wynn wonders: what does she have to lose? It soon becomes apparent that Wynn’s out of her league. There’s a reason Playboy has a reputation and is a professional player. “I’m patient. That’s what makes me a good gambler. I always know when to call, and when to up the stakes with a raise.” These two had magnetism from the get go, being pulled together despite Wynn’s reluctance and reservations. What starts off as a game slowly becomes serious, as they begin to share intimacies including some very painful confessions.  I loved the sparks that flew, especially in and out of the bedroom, and I was placing my bet on Cullen’s game.

I wont say more as you have to read it for yourself! Cullen or silver eyes!! That man!! Holy hotness!!! I could feel the way they looked at each other! I could sense how much they cared and wondered will Wynn get her happily ever after!!?? This book made me cry, laugh and swoon for how Cullen is! Absolutely loved it!

I received a free copy of this book from the author. Playboy is a stand alone novel in the Manwhore series. You'll see some of the other guys in this book but briefly. This book focuses on Cullen and Wynn. Cullen is a poker player who's earned the nickname Playboy. Wynn is the best friend of Cullen's brother's wife. Follow that trail? :-) So they meet just before the wedding but at an underground casino Cullen happened to be playing in when Wynn's date brings her in with him and uses her as collateral - which he looses! What the heck?! LOL But of course he couldn't win because then Cullen and Wynn wouldn't have the opportunity to start their push and pull. This story is pretty cool. There may be some times where you'll pause and think will Wynn ever get her act together? Because seriously she has the biggest chip on her shoulder for someone who doesn't like to be judged herself. I just had to shake my head at her several times. In the end they're good to go. I really enjoyed Cullen's character and I'm glad he didn't give up on Wynn!

Wynn and Cullen.....sweet sweet Wynn who just got her heart broken and Cullen the playboy. Who would have though it would work out between them? Not me but I'm so happy to be wrong. Can Wynn who...is ready to settle down....tame the playboy? She's had her heart broken before from Emmett her long time on again and off again ex boyfriend. Does she risk getting hurt again? This book was a wonderful addition to the series. I've always liked Wynn because she's such a sweetheart and I just wanted her to have her forever HEA. Cullen as her hero was a surprise to me....a happy surprise but still a surprise. The chemistry was there between them and it worked. Loved it! Reviewed by: Heather S.

4.25 stars---PLAYBOY is the fifth instalment in Katy Evans’ contemporary, adult MANWHORE erotic, romance series focusing on a tight knit group of friends. This is professional poker player Cullen Carmichael, and thirty-year old, gallery owner Wynn Watson’s story line. PLAYBOY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person points of view (Wynn and Cullen) PLAYBOY follows the building relationship between professional poker player Cullen Carmichael, and thirty-year old, gallery owner Wynn Watson. An illegal, underground poker game finds Wynn Watson the ultimate prize when her date loses everything to poker player Cullen Carmichael including our story line heroine. Currently in a slump on the professional circuit Cullen’s losing streak comes to an end with Wynn Watson at his side. Hoping to keep his run of good luck, Cullen makes Wynn an offer she cannot refuse as he embarks on the qualifying rounds for a showdown in Vegas. What ensues is the building relationship between Cullen and Wynn, and the potential fall-out as Wynn struggles between head and heart, and her inability to look past Cullen’s questionable profession. Cullen has wanted Wynn for a very long time but Wynn was in a relationship, and Cullen has no plans to become the ‘other man’. With the nickname ‘Playboy’ on the professional circuit, Cullen’s reputation with the ladies precedes his introduction to our story line heroine, a heroine who is well aware of the man at her side. Discovering Wynn to be his ‘good luck charm’ Cullen is desperate to keep our heroine by his side. The relationship between Cullen and Wynn is based upon multiple bets, and an on-going game of winner takes all. Every action is measured by win, lose or draw but the ultimate loss comes in the form of a potential broken heart when the relationship becomes something more. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting players who figure prominently in Cullen and Wynn’s life including all of the previous story line couples, as well as Cullen’s brother Callan and Wynn’s best friend Olivia (Womanizer #4). We are introduced to a number of players on the professional poker tour, one of whom is about to change the direction of Cullen’s life. PLAYBOY is a fun and flirty story with sassy and sexy characters that reads a little bit like ‘Indecent Proposal’. Cullen offers Wynn everything she could every have imagined, an exchange that could have felt business-like but came with good intentions, from the heart. The character driven premise is realistic and spirited; the romance is tender, erotic and intense; the characters are charismatic and feisty. PLAYBOY is a sizzling and suggestive story from the pen of Katy Evans.

Poker meets love and all bets are on. Wow, well I wasn't expecting this kind of chemistry not only physically but in everything, it was off the charts, this is Cullen and Wynn's story and let me tell you it was beyond of what I thought it would be. Have a poker playboy and a girl who just wants nothing to do with love and sparks fly. Katy Evans did an amazing job plotting their story. A 5 burning stars!

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. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)
