I’m so excited to host the release day launch for Daisy Prescott’s Confessions of a Reformed Tom Cat!! Daisy is sharing an excerpt with us, and a fantastic giveaway, so be sure to read all the way down to check out all the release day excitement!!
tl;dr recommendation: Hilarious, sexy & endearing – five stars!
I, Thomas Clifford Donnely, am a manwhore.
I’ve been told I’m irresistible to women. Like catnip for a different type of pussy-cat. I guess you could call me a Tom Cat.
This is the story about how I lost my wingman, broke all my own rules, and found myself falling in love.
Tom Donnelly isn’t the marrying kind, or the dating kind. Even after losing his #1 wingman to love, he doesn’t see the point in relationships. When his sister’s best friend returns to Whidbey Island and propositions Donnelly for a one-night stand, he breaks one of his biggest rules—no fooling around with his sisters’ friends. It’s just sex, nothing more. That’s what Tom does and does well.
What happens when “just sex” isn’t enough?
Hailey King is more than a match for Tom’s flirtations. She’s known him most of her life and has heard the rumors about his “skills” for years. When her perfectly planned future falls apart, will the last man she should ever fall for turn out to be more than a one-night stand?
This book made me laugh out loud! With his wit, charm & dimples, I immediately fell in love with Tom (like every other woman out there). Simply put, Tom is a player. He’s not looking for a long commitment and he makes that fact very clear to every woman he sleeps with. He’s a one night stand kind of guy, or a few times more if you can handle a no strings attached kind of fuck. He lives on a fairly small island and I’m a little surprised that he hasn’t slept his way completely through it yet…
But then he meets Hailey – or shall I say, he re-meets Hailey, his sister’s best friend who just moved back home. Not only is Hailey off limits because he’s his sister’s best friend, but she’s also engaged, and that’s one line that Tom won’t cross. But when Hailey breaks off the engagement and literally throws herself at Tom, he’s not a man to deny a woman in need….The sex between then is so explosive that it starts to break open the walls that Tom has built around his heart. Even though he’s trying to keep things casual, his heart has other plans.
Hailey’s not a pushover by any stretch of the imagination. She can handle the boys – and Tom. She’s strong, independent and sarcastic. Basically, she’s awesome. She doesn’t fall apart when things get hard and you quickly realize that if any woman is going to tame Tom, it’s Hailey. While Tom keeps feelings out of the equation with his relationships, he certainly isn’t cold. His love for his family is undeniable and I loved seeing his softer side as he deals with family drama.
I absolutely loved this book. The writing is great and I was easily swept away in this story. I mean, Tom named his boat The Master Baiter, WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?! If you need a fun, funny, endearing read, then you must pick this one up immediately!
