Tahoe Roth is the true definition of a ladies man. He makes no lies or apologies concerning his female pursuits, and he definitely has no problem with people knowing this about him. He'll pretty much sleep with any woman that he wants to except for his friend Regina, and trust me, she tries!
"He’s annoying. He’s cocky. Selfish. Self-centered. Really, I don’t even know why we’re friends."
I wouldn't call Tahoe and Regina BFF's at all. At least not in the beginning. They're definitely close, and have a quirky friendship but no way are they super close friends. And this is why I love Katy's writing so much, she makes you work for it. Talk about a slow burn, I was dying for their friendship to turn intimate but I honestly think the best part was seeing them grow as actual close friends. The more time they spend together the stronger their bond becomes, and they end up relying on each other. And the sexual tension is crazy good, but neither will hit the easy button and just do it! But that all ads to the slow burn I was talking about. It's sooooo good! Friends to lovers should be that way, I know I don't want to read a book with a fast paced friends to lovers theme. This was done perfectly and with just the right amount of angst.
"I want his lips. I want his hands all over me. I want his heart. His wounded beautiful heart he’s put on a shelf where nobody can reach it."
I absolutely loved how this story developed and how the characters make you pull for them the whole way through. It was definitely a page turner because I just wanted them to finally be together!!!
But it's pretty obvious that Tahoe and Gina are flawed from their past in different ways, and let me tell you, my heart ached for Tahoe when I found out why. And Regina just seems to be settling for men who are nice, but not what she needs. TAHOE is what she needs! Omg he is so yummy.
As their story progresses you get glimpses of the other characters in the Manwhore series, and how their lives are moving along which I loved! But this book is totally a standalone and you don't need to read the others first. But they are pretty great too! And also, this story is told in first person, Regina's POV.
Ladies Man was PRETTY DAMN GOOD and definitely one of my favorites from Katy, I would recommend this book 100%! Such a great read!
“I want to kiss you. I look at you, with those curves of yours and that wild hair and those dark eyes and that reluctant little smile, and I want to crush you against me, fill my hands with your hair and drown in your smell. And I want to kiss you.”
