Written by Katy Evans
This was not my first venture into the world Katy Evans creates with her writing. I have so much respect and awe for writers to create worlds and take us on these amazing journeys. To be able to suspend my own reality to jump into theirs. So it’s difficult when I get to a book that I just don’t connect with.
Tycoon was a book like that for me. I didn’t connect with their story, and I was lost a little in the beginning. It felt almost like I was jumping into the middle of Aaric and Bryn’s story. There were flashbacks eventually, but for some reason, I just couldn’t find my path along with them.
Aaric took himself from an orphaned lost boy who needed to prove he deserved the girl he loved, to a Manhattan tycoon. When Bryn comes back into his life and is looking for an investment in her startup, he vets her opportunity himself.
Their past teenage friendship grows and changes into what he’s always wanted and what she always wondered “what if.”
“I give in and for a moment, I just want it all. I want all of this man. I want to know what he wants, what he dreams, what makes him up, I want to dissect him and let him dissect me and then I want to put each other together with the wrong pieces, so one piece of him ends up in me, and some of mine end up in him.”
I give this book 2.2 stars out of 5. Again, reading is as much about the journey the reader takes as much as it is about the characters. If you’ve read Katy’s books before, give it a try. If you haven’t read her before, maybe start with one of her other series first.
Happy reading - keep things a little on the naughty side!
