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?
Confessions of a Reformed Tom Cat follows the story of Tom and Hailey. Tom is a self proclaimed man whore. Women are his weakness. He doesn’t date or make promises. He’s definitely not the marrying kind. Until one night. A one-night stand with his sister’s best friend will have him questioning all his rules. Will one night with her be enough? What happens when the tom cat suddenly wants more?
Hailey has known Tom for years. She knows the rumors about him and can more than handle his flirtations. When her relationship with her fiancee suddenly ends, she goes running to one the one man she shouldn’t. Will she be able to have a “no strings” relationship with this man or will it end up being more than just a one-night stand?
One of the things I love about Daisy Prescott is that her writing is so entertaining. And this book does not disappoint. The writing was smart, witty and funny. I found myself laughing and smiling at just how clueless Tom could be. Being inside his head was really entertaining. He’s definitely not afraid to tell things like they are. I liked seeing that there was more to Tom then just being a player. He cares deeply for his family and friends and can be fiercely protective.
Hailey is a breath of fresh air. She’s a tomboy, and isn’t afraid to hang with the guys, but she also has a very feminine side. She’s the perfect match for Tom. She’s a strong woman, can hold her own and isn’t scared away by Tom’s sarcasm or cluelessness. She brings out a side of Tom that no one has seen before.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I am a big fan of the friends to lovers story-line. I really enjoyed watching Tom go from Player to finding himself in his first real relationship. This book was so much fun! I loved the romance and all the funny moments. There was no unnecessary drama. It’s just an overall great read! If you’re looking for a book with smart and entertaining writing, look no further!
