BOOK REVIEW ― Tycoon by Katy Evans


He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.
Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.
That man is gone.
In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.
He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.
The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.
It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.
I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.
And he doesn’t.
Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.
Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.
He's assessing every piece of me, to the point I've never felt so bare.
I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.
Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.
Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

SQUEEEEEE!!!! Katy Evans never fails to amaze with her books! Tycoon was exactly what I had hoped for it!

description...Aaric, the boy from my past who’s no longer just a boy, and no longer just in my past. He’s very much a man , very much in my present.

Over the years of reading Katy's books, I've realized is that you can never go wrong with her. Her writing style always hooks you in, no matter what the story and leaves you always wanting more at the end. Tycoon, even though is quite different in a lot of ways from her previous books, has everything — the steam, the passion, the wit and boatloads of angst!

Christos and Bryn are two wholes, that when put together create something new, something that is them. Christos is broody but there is a different kind of air to him when comparing to Remy or Malcolm. Coming across as untouchable to the general public, Aaric has a lightness to him that makes him more approachable and un-god- like. Bryn is the complete opposite of him. She is a dreamer, carefree and the perfect correspondent to Aaric.

The one thing that these two share are at the crossroads in life where they are at. Bryn is at a point in her life where Aaric was in his younger days and Aaric is at that point in his life where Bryn was when she was younger.

Like I have already said, there is boatloads of angst and believe me when I say there is more than enough to go around that and which will keep you on pins and needles and you won't rest until you finally see them get their Happily Ever After.

description I start to kiss him back with all the passion I kept hidden for so many years. This man kissing me is the only man who makes me nervous. Makes me babble. Makes me afraid. Makes me excited. Makes me want. There are the kinds of things that you don’t choose— they just happen, sometimes with people you don’t want to react to as fiercely as you do. Christos has always been mine. My what if, and also my why him.

Now onto the notable difference that sets Evan's previous books and Tycoon from each other and that is immediately noticeable is that Aaric is not like Evans' previous heroes and there are dialogues. Lots and lots of dialogues.

If you are an avid Katy Evans fan you know that Katy does fantastic monologs and that has always been a focus but this time our hero is not the silent type. He talks and he acts on his emotions and feelings. Evans' heroes have always been the silent and broody type and have an energy that seeps through the pages when you read about them. You can actually feel the shift when she focuses on the male leads. Aaric is tad tamer but in the end, he is still an Evans Hero so he is bound to evoke some really strong emotions and make you swoon and hope that he was real *sigh* and makes you keep turning the pages and THAT is what I love about Katy's writing.
