Book Three in the Amazon Best Selling Evolve Series by S.E.Hall, Entice can be read following Emerge, Embrace and Entangled (novella) or as a stand-alone.

Sawyer Beckett does everything full throttle— he’s fiercely loyal to his friends, always the life of the party and impossible for the parade of women in and out of his bedroom to forget.

Surrounded by true love and happily ever afters, Sawyer's not sure if he's enhancing the what-ifs in his head, or if the goddess on stage that night really is worth the search and nagging in his chest.

At the most inopportune moment possible, Emmett Young comes "skipping" back into his life...and for the first time, Sawyer is the one left wanting more. But Emmett can't give her heart; it's already committed—for life.

The only one strong enough to bring the elusive playboy to his knees is the one he can't have. Luckily, Sawyer Beckett doesn't give up easily.

Mature subject matter and strong sexual content- mature audiences only recommended.

4.5 Star Review by Jen Hagen

This is Sawyer’s story, and in case you didn’t catch him in the other books, he is a funny guy.  When we last saw Sawyer he was intrigued by a stripper performing a very bad dance at a bachelor party.  He has now made it his mission to visit all the stripper bars to find her, but has not had any luck locating the raven-haired beauty.   In the meantime he has been biding his time with other beauties.  You see, Sawyer is a man whore.  There’s no other way to say it.  He likes his women, and he seems to be making quite the rounds lately trying to get the girl of his dreams out his mind.  But one night there she is and they make eye contact and she gets an eye full of something else.

“This is an ejaculation hallucination, it’s gotta be.”

Sawyer is caught in quite a predicament, but his luck is about to turn around.  Fate has stepped in his way (with the help of Dane) and he finally gets to meet the girl of his dreams, and she is everything that he has imagined.  Sawyer is lust struck.   Emmett is her name and she is down on her luck.  Sawyer makes it his mission to better her life, simply because Sawyer likes to take control.  It also helps that his friend Dane has mega amounts of money and can condemn an apartment, owns a duplex, and has a spare car sitting around.  Dane is very loyal to his friends and doesn’t bat an eye when Sawyer asks for his help.  Sawyer is 110% committed to being a good friend to her and he makes it known that he is willing and ready for more.  Unfortunately these feelings are not reciprocated.

“Sawyer, I’m not what you think I am.  Let it go and be my friend.  I could really use one.”

Sawyer was just friend zoned and if you know Sawyer, you know that his tenacity will not allow him to remain in that zone.  He relentlessly pushes to move past her walls and continually vocalizes his desires when she lets him know that she can’t have him, that she’s not good enough for him.  Sawyer is ready to move on from his man whore ways and wants desperately to be with Emmett.

“You can have me.”  He whispers onto the back of my hand, placing a kiss behind his words.  “All you have to do is take it.”

 Emmett is holding back a huge secret, one that will change the course of her life forever.   She believes that Sawyer will not want anything to do with her once that secret is revealed.  Sawyer knows that she is holding back something, but doesn’t push for details.

“If you don’t have complete faith in me, I haven’t earned your secrets.  When you trust me, trust that I mean it when I say I won’t run, no matter what it is, then you tell me.”

Eventually Emmett reveals her big secret, and true to his word Sawyer does not least not right away.   Both Emmett and Sawyer need to come to terms with where this relationship is heading and what this new information means for them.   There are times when both Emmett and Sawyer push away from the other and they need time to process.  These are the times when my heart hurt.   This book played with my emotions taking me from a euphoric high with all the endorphins being released from laughing to crushing me and making my eyes wet. 

Sawyer has a lot of one liners that will push you over the edge of sanity.  I was waiting for my tires to be rotated when I got the giggles so bad that I had to purse my lips together and try to control my full body shakes from holding in the laughs.  A few pages later I’m fidgeting because of a hot sex scene.  I had to take a break and play Candy Crush before somebody asked me if I was okay.    Do you remember the old junkyard sitcom “Sanford and Son?”  There’s a reference to him that still makes me giggle.

 I bet the author was in a constant state of giggles writing Sawyer’s POV.   Evan’s internal monologues had my sides hurting from laughing in his book, and Sawyer’s voice is 10 times as funny.  You will be laughing so hard, but I am warning you Sawyer has a sensitive side as well and has difficulty handling responsibility and may check out for a brief period of time.  Sawyer loves to be in control and it throws him for a loop when there are things he can’t necessarily control.  Sawyer is capable of throwing anyone off their game with his outbursts, he has no filter, and he doesn’t hold anything back.  But Emmett can hold her own against Sawyer and his outbursts. 

Dear God,” I hear Emmett mumble.  She sits up, hands covering her face for a second.  “I am so, so sorry.  We’re having him tested for Tourettes.”

All members of The Crew are here and make brief appearances.  Evan is still wondering how to get out of group text messages and Laney is still high strung and competitive.   All members of The Crew are extremely loyal to their friends.  This is where I finally started liking Dane.  I have to admit I didn’t care for him before because I wasn’t willing to give him the chance.  Now I see that he is indeed a fabulous loyal person who will do anything for his friends, and loves Laney with all that he is.  He has a calming force when it comes to eccentric Laney and now I adore him.  He will do anything for his family to make their lives easier. 

If you liked the little glimpses of Sawyer in the previous books, you will love reading his story.  He is controlling, hilarious, and loves ferociously.  I think I may have a new book boyfriend and his name is Sawyer.

Sighing, I wrap a towel around my waist and open the door, ready to try and be at least behave cordially, which I know is only right. “Listen, can I—”
“She’s gone.”
I look up, startled by Laney’s voice and even more shocked to see her sitting on my bed. Thank God I put on a towel. “Where’d she go?”
“Home, I guess.” She shrugs. “I didn’t ask. I heard the front door slam and got up to see what the hell was going on. Since you’re here and she’s not, I’m assuming it was her.”
How did I not hear the door slam? Not that I would’ve chased her. “All right, she left. So what’re you doing in here?”
She stands, grabbing some shorts off my floor and throwing them at me. “Go put those on and we’ll talk. Since I’m up,” she reminds me with an evil glare.
I head back in the bathroom to change, and stay in there, locking the door and taking a deep breath. I’m over six feet tall and lift almost every day, but yes, I’m scared to face Laney. Not only is she a hellcat when she wants to be, but I don’t want to see the disgust or disappointment in her eyes. She’s one of my best friends, even more so after becoming roommates, and her opinion means a lot to me.
“Get out here!” she yells when she finally realizes I must be stalling. “Take it like a man.”
I might as well go out there or she’ll undoubtedly come in here, kicking in the door or taking it off the hinges in what I have no doubt would be less than five minutes.
She pats the bed beside her when I open the door. “Come sit down. We’re doing this now.”
I hesitantly take a seat, my knee bouncing as I wait for her to speak.
“First, and of the utmost importance, you know I call my father ‘Daddy,’ so hearing your visitors scream it repeatedly in the middle of the night freaks me out. I wake up thinking I’m in some bad Lifetime movie.”
Fighting my smirk, I agree. "Okay, got it." Maybe this little chat won’t be so bad after all.
"Second," she stands and tucks my extra pillow between the headboard and wall before sitting back down beside me, "on school and game nights, booty call curfew is eleven. That work for you?"
"Yeah." I sigh and run my hands along my head, wishing I had some hair to pull. "It won't happen again, Gidge. I'm sorry."
She places a hand on my shoulder with a small smile. "Don't be sorry. This is your house too and we hadn't talked about it. Now we have, so we're all good. Any rules you want to put in place?"
"Nah, I'm easy."
"Made crystal clear by the parade of women coming in and out of here." She laughs and scoots away quickly, ducking the pillow I grab and swing at her head. “Speaking of which, been busier than usual lately—you trying to make a little Guinness or Gonorrhea?"

Here we go—this is what she really wants to talk about. It was a nice segue, funny even, but I’m on to her.
