Disclaimer: ARC received in exchange for an honest review Katie McCoy’s latest release, Wingman, is the second standalone entry in her Rascals series. This installment pairs marketing/PR guru, Kelsey, with bartender and budding brewmaster, Chase. Kelsey and Chase are the best friends of Alex and Emerson, the couple introduced in the first book, though reading Rascal prior to Wingman is not a prerequisite. Compared to her presence in the first book, Rascal, Kelsey seems like a completely different character when thrust into the spotlight in Wingman. Previously, Kelsey seems fairly confident, well-established in her field of work, despite harboring a hefty unrequited crush on her British boss, Justin. In this novel, she initially comes off as obtuse—kind of clueless, a little shallow, and a lot self-centered. At the onset of a Wingman, I wasn’t all that fond of her character; I wasn’t sold on the transformation her character was going to have to undergo. But as the story develops and as Chase starts to break Kelsey down and build her back up, she certainly becomes more accessible and endearing to the reader. Alternatively, Chase is fabulous from the get go; he’s just the ideal book boyfriend. He’s kind, loyal, intuitive, attentive, and if the cover model is any indication, easy on the eyes. Chase is everything Kelsey’s family is not; basically, her family sucks. They are THE WORST. Her family’s presence in the story absolutely serves as an explanation for why Kelsey is the way she is: insecure, closed-off, apprehensive. It was just beyond infuriating how poorly Kelsey’s mom and sister treated her, how they talked down to her, how little respect they had for her. The way they belittled her career, the comments about her size and appearance, the way they bullied her into compliance, and put her down in front of others was horrifying. The way Chase ran interference between Kelsey and her awful excuse for relatives really ended up making many of the scenes involving Kelsey’s family tolerable, and created some sweet, memorable exchanges for the budding couple. That bridal shop scene? I mean, COME. ON. So SWOONY. I’m glad a McCoy didn’t drag out Kelsey’s obsession with Justin longer than necessary or have Kelsey try to force an ongoing interest in him despite developing a relationship with Chase. She realizes fairly quickly that she’s developing feelings for Chase and that their interactions are a result of mutual attraction of the real and reciprocated variety. There was just a genuine, well-developed romance within the pages of this novel. This is another great installment in McCoy’s new series, and I actually think, after a slightly frustrating beginning, that I ended up liking this one just slightly more than the first. Ultimately, Wingman was a fantastic and easy read that most romance readers will thoroughly enjoy, and you can’t really ask for more than that.

I am really digging on Katie McCoy's Rascal book series. Wingman had me laughing up a storm when we were with Chase and Kelsey! Kelsey is my girl! I loved her nonsense rambling when she was nervous. Even though she and Chase have a great friendship, the electricity between these two can not be ignored. So while Chase is Kelsey's wingman for the man of her dreams, he soon realizes that he may have been missing so much more that he had imagined in life. I enjoyed this story and loved the characters in this book. I love the friendship bonds that have been formed. I am excited to read the next book in this series!

4.5 stars. With a Wingman like Chase, what could go wrong? Wingman is the second book in the ‘Rascals’ series by Katie McCoy, it’s a laugh a minute rom/com that has a seriously sexy hero and a very insecure heroine. We met both Chase and Kelsey in book 1 of the series. Rascal, Chase is Emerson’s best friend and Kelsey is Alex’s. So, let me just say, if you haven’t read their story, you should. It’s not necessary, but it is a fantastic book. Just sayin’ lol. Chase is one of five hot guys who co-own the Rascals bar that the series is named after. Kelsey works at a fashion house in their PR department. She’s been lusting after her British boss for four years, to no avail, the man is totally oblivious to her charms. One night at the bar she comes up with a plan, and needs Chase to help her with it. He will show her how to be sexy and win her boss’s affections. Seems simple enough, until things start to get a little heated between them. Kelsey has some hangups about her looks thanks to her awful mom who does nothing but belittle her. It takes Chase some time to make her see herself the way he does, but when she starts to believe him she really lets go of her inhibitions and their tidy ‘no strings’ relationship begins to look and feel just like the real dea Kelsey was a very relatable character, we all know how it feels to be overwhelmed and unsure of your looks, or your body. She’s sweet and kind and doesn’t really do well with confrontation either. Chase is confident, cocky and happy in his own skin, and is more than happy to help out. He brings out the best in Kelsey and she makes him look deeper into himself after years of one night stands. They each grow and change, the chemistry between them in truly explosive and made their sexy times very hot. I loved reading this story, Katie McCoy is one of my go-to authors, I don’t even have to think about whether I want to take a chance on her newest book. I just know it’ll be worth grabbing, and I haven’t been wrong yet. I heartily recommend it to all.

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author...I was so excited to get this book! I have been waiting for it, this is the second book in the Rascals Series and I loved it just like I loved the first one, and please do yourself a favor and make sure to grab that one. This was Chase's and Kelsey's book and they were great together. Kelsey was hilarious just like she was in the first one I am so happy she got a story, here we get a little more background on her and it breaks your heart, her family was horrible and were constantly criticizing her, but luckily Chase' gets her to see that she is a beautiful curvy woman. Then we have Chase, we know him as the charming flirt, womanizer and then we get to find out why he gets that way. I loved reading of the previous cast and their friends and can't wait to hear more from them..Next please and Enjoy!!!

Urban Dictionary defines a ‘wingman’ as ‘a guy you bring along with you on singles outings (like to bars) that helps you out with the women.’ The wingman has his friend’s back and does what he can to allow his friend to ‘get the girl’ he wants, even if it means that the wingman loses out on the ‘one.’ In Katie McCoy’s newest release, WingMan, she crafts her own defining characteristics and uses Chase McKenna, Mr. Panty-Dropper himself, to teach Kelsey the art (tricks) of seduction…to be her wingman, in a way, that allows her to understand how she needs to act and what she needs to say in order to make her boss, the man she’s had a crush on for the past four years, to see her as an attractive woman…as someone he would consider spending time with outside of their place of business. So, while Chase isn’t Kelsey’s typical ‘wingman,’ he quickly becomes essential to Kelsey’s life, in ways she never even considered, which makes Chase’s tutorials become more about them educating one another on each other’s likes and dislikes when it comes to sex, intimacy, and emotional investment. It’s almost as if the student becomes the teacher because Chase’s playboy ways never prepared him for what he feels for Kelsey and what he’ll have to do once Kelsey’s lessons are over and she finally gets what she’s always wanted - another man. McCoy constructs a realistic heroine in Kelsey. She’s relatable to readers because anyone could be experiencing Kelsey’s insecurities. Kelsey’s nervous ramblings show a woman who doesn’t quite know how to act around guys she’s attracted to and by placing Kelsey in Chase’s very capable hands, she’s able to learn a valuable lesson - one that all women should learn and that’s that they’re enough…they’re beautiful, and man does Chase do a fantastic job of helping Kelsey to realize her own self-worth. At first, Chase appears to be the stereotypical manwhore - a playful bartender who never finds himself lacking female attention, and while some readers might be turned off due to Chase’s abundant extra-curricular activities, there’s more to him than his ability to get laid and that’s what McCoy allows readers to see as Chase works with Kelsey…as he proves to her just how amazing she is, and it’s his actions with Kelsey and witnessing the reality of who Chase is beneath the playboy facade that will endear him to readers. Chase and Kelsey’s story is a humorous and steamy romantic comedy that illustrates how essential it is for a person to feel confident and beautiful when it comes to attracting the opposite sex. Part of the reason that Kelsey’s boss has never truly seen her is because of the quirks she’s developed over the years due to a lack of self confidence and her mother’s degrading comments. Chase makes Kelsey see herself for who she really is and it’s because of Chase’s care and compassion that she finally feels ‘enough’ not just for someone of the opposite sex but more importantly for herself. 4 Poison Apples

A swoony and steamy friends-to-lovers romance! Wingman has everything you’ve come to love from Katie McCoy’s romance! Laughter, sizzling chemistry, and a sexy love story! The characters’ interaction with each other was energetic and full of combustible attraction. Their lighthearted friendship easily transitioned to a red-hot friends-with-benefits relationship that scorched the pages of the book. Although Kelsey was very relatable with her realistic qualities of insecurity and self-doubt, the real scene stealer, in my opinion, was Chase. His laid-back approach and irresistible charm was perfect and quite endearing to read. And despite him being labeled a playboy, it was his compassion, thoughtfulness, and honesty that showcased his true qualities as a deeply caring, lovable, and passionate man. How far is Chase willing to go to help Kelsey land “the man of her dreams”? Can they go back to being just friends once that invisible line has been crossed? And will Chase and Kelsey realize the person they’re meant to be with was right in front of them all along? A fun, entertaining, and enticing summer read, Wingman is sure to leave a smile on your face and a desperate need for the next book in the series! I can’t wait for more!
