Book Review: Tycoon by Katy Evans

Tycoon Amazon

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.

Tycoon is a second-chance, angsty love story.  Oh man, the angst is so so good! I was quickly drawn in and found it difficult to put down. The book is eclecticly written in duel POVs and I loved it. 

Bryan Kelly has moved to Manhattan to fulfill her dream however she is struggling with finding investors. She scores a meeting with "The legend. The one with the Midas, touch, and the golden eyes to match." Aaric Christos. Aaric and Bryan have a past. A past where Aaric still had to grow into to his nose.  Now he's all man. Bryan wants to keep their relationship professional but Aaric has other ideas. 

Aaric struggles to do the right thing vs following his heart. The struggle, the angst and the gut-wrenching choices make this story one of my favorites this year. Bryan lays it all out, putting her heart on the line and I cried. I love this story inside and out. It's well developed, pulling on your heartstrings from the beginning. 5 Stars!
