He's not the guy you date. He's the one night stand.
You'd think the man who sends hot looks my way, who called me succulent, would want to strip me to my skin and spread me out on his bed like every other woman in Chicago.
Except he passed on my offer....
Just like I 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.
So I try to distract myself with dating.
Tahoe and I are strictly friends. He doesn't think my new beau is good enough - he doesn't think any man is, especially himself.
The more time Tahoe and I spend together, the more confused I feel.
I'm trying to open up to love.
But I'm quickly realizing that the only man I want is the stubborn, cocky, unattainable playboy Tahoe Roth.
The one my mother warned me about.
The one my body craves.
The only one who will surely break my heart.

After reading Manwhore I was so excited to read Tahoe and Gina's story, and as much as I loved it, I found it quite emotional. Both Tahoe and Gina have low self esteem issues. Neither of them feel as if they deserve love, or that they can love, I found it quite sad really. I found Gina, (who I originally thought as a strong woman), to be very weak, and far too accommodating and forgiving with Tahoe. Tahoe was a complete and utter Manwhore, who did not remotely try to tone his whorish ways in Gina's presence. It wasn't until the latter half of the book when I learned their histories and their issues that I felt any compassion for either of them and could actually relate to them, Tahoe in particular. I actually fell for Tahoe once I heard his full story and I could understand his inner workings. Very angsty, and definitely not a fun read. Still enjoyed it though. Of course the fantastic narration helped.
Tahoe and Regina.. The best of friends who should be more.. finally are😀they're broken but made for each other ! What a fabulous story excellently narrated by grace grant as expected.
"Not her best, but likable -4 stars is generous"
Perhaps the bar was set high after Manwhore ..... but Tahoe's story was a little too drawn out for me. The story takes place right after the Saint's leave for their honeymoon and over the course of the following year ...... it takes FOREVER for Tahoe and Regina to finally get together. I don't know if I found it believable .... it certainly did not reflect the angst I should have felt at certain points in the book. I was generous with my rating because I have hopes for the next installment which I hope is Tahoe's sister interning with the other womanizing man whore. I have high hopes the next one will be the five stars I am used to giving her. Credit worthy? If you have nothing better to read, yes, otherwise wait for a sale. I did use a credit FYI.
I was very disappointed in Ladies Man: Tahoe's Story. For 6.5 hours Tahoe and Gina dance around each other. They start out as acquaintances in Manwhore and Manwhore +1 and in Ladies Man they build a friendship to falling in love. It takes about a 1.5 years for the relationship to bloom into falling in love. The last 1.5 hrs is Tahoe and Gina admitting they love each other and having sex.
Manwhore and Manwhore +1 had an element of mystery, suspense, and fun. Very little of these elements are in Ladies Man. I almost returned it twice but decided to hear it out. During Gina and Tahoe dancing around each other Gina did date another man and Tahoe kept up his string of one night stands. Gina asked Tahoe if he's ever been in love and he tells her he worshiped Lisa. So any romance guru can guess with a couple of scenarios what happened with Tahoe and Lisa. THE END
I don't like it when people give a bad rating to a book just because it wasn't their cup-of-tea. It gives an unfair rating to people who do like that type of book. It's not that Ladies Man isn't my cup-of-tea it's that I expected a WHOLE LOT MORE. I loved Manwhore and Manwhore +1 and just don't want anyone to expect the same type of book with Ladies Man. I've had this book pre-ordered for weeks and once again...AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED with the cookie-cutter-romance.
So I believe I gave a fair rating: 3 stars for the cookie-cutter-romance
5 stars for the astounding Grace Grant
4 stars overall
Whether or not it's worth a credit will have to be your opinion. I'm returning my copy.
"I want a T-Rex!"
Honestly I have waited for this story since I first read Manwhore. I knew Tahoe and Gina (Regina) would be explosive and I was not disappointed. I truly loved the buildup, and the delivery!!
There is more to Tahoe than he tries to portray. He is kind, loyal, loving, protective, and just an all around amazing man. I love how true of a friend he is for her. That he would stop ANYTHING when she comes a calling. I love that he is such a family man, and the relationship he has with the few people in his intimate circle. I just love me some T-REX.
Gina, Gina, Regina. This woman right here is so very relatable. She is a woman who is willing to work hard to get her dreams working. No job is too good for her. She is wiling to do what she has to do to better herself. She knows her flaws and will admit to it. She learns what her worth is throughout this story and never stops trying to find the perfect ONE. She knows who she wants and when he isn't able to give it to her she takes what she can and tries to move on. I love that she has T in her life to ensure she doesn't get hurt, and I love how he reacts when he thinks she is!
As you can tell I love everything about this story and can't wait to listen to it now that I've read it!
This is an epically quick read and I can honestly say that I need more of this ladies man!
Seriously can't wait to see his reaction to his sister and his best friend!!!!!! Hahahahahhaah now that's going to be a wicked story.... Can't wait!
"THEIR DANCE WAS BRUTAL... & YES, BEAUTIFUL TOO"
This is the story about two friends.... two friends whose hearts have been broken, two friends who wear 'happy' masks to hide their damaged true selves, two friends who don't want to want the other and yet they do and, after a year of intense longing, near misses and desperate denials, they're both finally ready to drop their masks.... and take that leap.
Told from Gina's POV as she covertly watches the handsome, sexy, fun-loving Playboy Tahoe Roth, who unashamedly goes from woman to woman or women to women, and she fantasizes, longs for and dreams that it was her lips, her body and just her that would be enough for him. She tries to move passed her attraction by dating Trent but, after months of trying, Gina reluctantly has to come to terms with the fact that Trent's not the man her heart wants and no amount of time will change that fact. Gina's seen the same unspoken longing, the ache and the passion reflected back from Tahoe's eyes too so dare she take the chance.... could he overcome his past heartbreak.... can she remain is the 'just friends' zone.... or, is love worth risking it all for?
This bitter-sweet, friends to lovers, emotion driven love story slowly drifts through a years worth of highs and lows as Gina and Tahoe dance around the flames of attraction, passion and obsession that's sensually sizzling and provocatively brewing between them. And I too became lost, possessed and obsessed with Tahoe, his unbreakable unwavering impenetrable mask and just how Gina was going to break through it if she was ever brave enough to take the chance of claiming his heart. There's heightened emotions, passion, romantic scenes filled with beautiful heartfelt moving words and, in the end sex and love.... however, I wish it had been longer because I really wasn't ready to let them go... even an Epilogue would have quelled my greed. But I guess I'll just have to wait for Callan's story in 2017 and hope, as this book did, that it will include all the latest news from the much loved couples that came before (ah humm!)... preceded it.
Worth a credit? Great story, loveable characters - yes even the damaged Ladies Man, well written and all brought to life by a talented narrator.... so YES creditworthy.
"Loving Tahoe and Gina"
Yes I would the story catches you and holds you from the beginning to the end
The build up to their story it was not fast and hot it was a slow tease . I really enjoy books like that . It helps you really get into the story . And the getting down and dirty scenes were sweet .
Gina. Was my favorite
"Katy's Men are Heroes with Heart"
After the Manwhore trilogy, Katy graciously wrote another story focusing on one of the best friends, a sexy secondary character/ confirmed bachelor. All I can say is "thank you!" This book is sweet, sexy and funny. Without too much angst and filled with fun friends, the story is bursting with light-hearted romance. Absolutely loved it!
"100 times better than I thought it would be"
I am such a huge Katy Evans fan! I own every single one of her books! So I can say I was dyeing for the chance to read “Ladies Man!” It was 100 times better than I thought it would be. Amaze Balls!!!!! OMG Tahoe is such a complex character. He’s as hot as Sin! But with an intensity about him. That will have you yearning for his cocky attitude. Then there is Gina!! Good lord she drives me nuts!!!
“Ladies Man” emotionally jarring! I was crying my eyes out and my heart hurt for them! Fuck they are perfect together. But yes it took them time to pull their shit together. Just a magical book and even better ending!!!
I love Tahoe's story so much!! one of my faves wish there were more books in the series
"Drawn out scenes"
I really enjoyed this book except some of the scenes were too drawn out. 😩
"Katy Evans does it again and grace grant solidifies the awesomeness!"
Love love love this story and can't even express how much grace Grant does justice to the characters as she's narrating. Such a fantastic story! I've listened to it several times and it's fantastic every time!
