Irreverent, cocky, playful and naughty.
He’s not the guy you date.
He’s the one night stand.
The one your mother warned you about.
The one your body craves.
You’d think the man who called me succulent would want to strip me down and spread me out on his bed—like he’s done with countless others.
But he passed on my offer….
Just like I’d once passed on his.
He’s wary, like I am.
He’s broken, like I am.
And everyone knows two broken parts can’t ever make a whole.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends.
So I distract myself with other men.
He doesn’t think my new man is good enough. This blond blue-eyed beast doesn’t think any man is—himself included.
But the more time we spend together, the more confused I feel.
I'm trying to open myself to love.
Yet I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is Tahoe Roth.
The one man who will surely break my heart.

Ack! This book! The amount of feels reading this book! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Katy Evans writes some of my favorite alpha heroes. Tahoe is one of my absolute favorites. Ladies Man is part of the Manwhore series but can be read as a stand-alone but honestly, I liked them so much, I’d recommend reading those too.
“God, this mouth belongs to me, this mouth was made for me.”
This book is a slow build up. These two characters start as friends and while the attraction between the two is there from the beginning, they are both fighting it. Gina was burned badly in her last, long-term relationship, and learning to let someone into her heart again just doens’t seem to be in the cards for her. Tahoe is a ladies man. It’s right there in the title, for pete’s sakes. But there is a reason behind the way he acts and why he trys to distance what he feels for her.
“I hadn’t realized until now that nothing could have kept me from falling in love with him.”
Their friendship is what will keep you reading this book. The feelings that radiate from every page. Their desire for another, the pain of not being together and when you finally get to the part when they are together…sigh. Perfection.
“He kisses me like I am the first drop of rain after years of drought.
He kisses me like I am the first and only bite of chocolate he is ever going to get.
He savors me. Tastes me. Sucks on me. Pries me open with his tongue and gently, slowly moves his lips against mine.”
