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.
LADIES MAN is the story of Tahoe and Regina, two people introduced to us in MANWHORE. Tahoe is very popular with the ladies; women flock to him wherever he goes and he’s never without a willing partner for the night. Regina might want him, but he’s admitted he’ll never be monogamous and, to Regina, monogamy and faithfulness are vital to her relationships. After being cheated on and having her heart broken by her college boyfriend, she’s not interested in letting another man into her heart. But her feelings for Tahoe make her realise that maybe she is ready to date again, even though she knows the man she wants is the man she’ll never be able to have.
What can I say about LADIES MAN? I enjoyed it, I did, but at the same time I felt it was very drawn out. The story takes place over a year, with Regina and Tahoe dancing around each other and their feelings the entire time. There’s no sex between the pair until the 90% mark, so if you’re expecting a lot of sexy times, you won’t find it here. What you will find is angst and a lot of it as the two try to sort out their feelings while keeping their friendship intact. What I liked most about this story is that while Tahoe was sleeping around, Regina wasn’t waiting for him. Yes, she pined over him, but she dated and had sex with someone else. Hallelujah!!!
LADIES MAN is part of the Manwhore series but it can be read as a stand-alone. It’s a friends-to-lovers story, but I will say that I found their friendship to be very awkward, which I suppose is probably the point. It’s only told in Regina’s POV but I would have liked to have seen an occasional switch in POV, as some of Regina’s thoughts were repetitive and it just would have been nice to know what Tahoe was thinking at times.
