The Casanova (The Miles High Club Book 3) Kindle Edition
In T L Swan’s steamy third installment of the Miles High Club, Kate’s hot new pen pal is a welcome distraction from her horrible boss. But nobody is as distracting as Elliot Miles…and he knows it.
My favorite hobby is infuriating Elliot Miles. Just the sight of my boss’s handsome face triggers my sarcasm. God knows how he earns his Casanova reputation—if a million women want him with his personality, what the heck am I doing wrong?
Disgusted with my love life, I join a dating app under a fake name. I start chatting to a man named Edgar. He’s not my type and lives on the other side of the world, but we hit off a friendship, laugh and confide in each other.
But lately things are getting weird at work. Elliot’s being…attentive. His eyes linger a little longer than they should, and there’s a heat behind them that I haven’t felt before. And then, in the shock of all shocks, he tells me that my vulnerability is appealing. But when was I vulnerable?
Horror dawns…Has my boss been reading my emails to Edgar?
Damn it, why did I use my work email?
Oh no, does he know what I really think of him? I’d rather die than ever admit it.
Or, even worse: is it possible that the man I loathe in real life is the man I’m falling for online?

I waited with baited breath for this novel to be released – purchasing it way before the release date and marking it on my calendar and even taping the date to my desktop. Since Mr. Masters and The Stopover are my go-to books and I have read both more times than I can count, I could hardly wait for August 26 to arrive. When I first read The Casanova I was somewhat disappointed and my initial review I left was pretty harsh. Loving the other books by T.L. Swan, I kept questioning myself about my take on this book. Then it hit me, and I quote from the narrative, “Is there something I am missing?” So, this past weekend I reread the entire book. In my first review I stated there was “no respect” – and again I quote from T.L’s narrative, “I have to do this on her terms and respect her decision.” I was wrong. Dead wrong. There was respect!
Yes, Elliot Miles is controlling. He is arrogant. He is bossy, “closed off, cold, reserved and can be mean.” “Elliott is a dreamer. He lives in a world where he is forced to be a realist, but in his heart, he is a romantic.” (Actual quotes.)
And Kate. She’s tough. She stands her ground and decides to make a life for herself away from Elliott if that’s what it takes to survive. She’s no pushover. Yes, there are a couple intimate scenes that I feel may have been over the top, but Kate is an adult. We readers are adults. And this is romantic fiction at its best by one of the best authors I have ever read.
I just want to shout I get it! I get Elliott and I understand. And most of all, I love it. We read romance to take us away. To feel the love. Be desired. And we want the happily ever after. I was wrong in my first review. The Casanova delivers it all. If you think otherwise, do as I did. Reread it again.
What. A. Joke. I'm barely 10 percent in and I can't bring myself to read anymore. It's an absolute chaotic mess with horrifically unlikable characters and incredibly degrading language concerning women's bodies. It's positively unhinged. One of the first characters we meet is a so-called 'sexually liberated' man who describes himself as being 'too into to women to call himself completely gay' but then spends several paragraphs making it clear how repulsive he finds female bodies. I've been able to stomach Swain's internalized misogyny and toxic view of sexuality and attraction before but this was just entirely too much.
I might have made an effort to power through if either of the main characters were either remotely interesting.
This is going down as one of my favorite books of 2021. The Casanova is everything I want and need in a romance novel.
Enemies to lovers with a bossy, possessive hero who is hot and all sorts of sizzling in the bedroom, and a heroine who doesn't back down and even makes him grovel? Yes, please.
Elliot Miles is perfection. I need a machine to turn book characters into real people, and I need it now. He's the CEO of the London branch of Miles Media. Kathryn is the IT Team Manager at the same company.
They hate each other, and the way they're at each other's throats is awesome. I loved the banter between them, and the tension really was palpable.
There are two moments that are pivotal and cause their relationship to change. All of a sudden, Kathryn becomes something more than a witch who works for him, and Elliot shows a side of him that was hidden until now.
Please note: he is still bossy, and still possessive, and definitely hot, and I love him for all of it. There are just... more layers there.
When the fun, scorching moments between them begin, it's off the charts. The banter goes on, and only makes everything hotter. And trust me when I tell you that Elliot may be possessive, but so is Kathryn. I really liked that he knew how to push all her buttons, even if not in the most tactful way. His social skills need some tuning, and his having-feelings-for-someone-and-not-knowing-what-to-do-with-them need that too. Big time.
The last 25% are EVERYTHING. There's a plot twist that had me wanting to punch Elliot in his beautiful face. Part of me understood it, most of me did not. I found myself doubting this HEA, but I shouldn't have, because the ending was perfect.
This was a fun, banter- and feeling-filled, steamy read, with a storyline and characters that pulled me in and wouldn't let me go. I couldn't recommend it more!

If you haven’t already read the other two books in the Miles High Series, (The Stopover and The Takeover) I would strongly suggest that you read these too - preferably before this one. Although you can read this as a standalone title, you would possibly enjoy it a little more knowing about Elliot’s older brother in the Miles family.
This book centres around Elliott ‘Casanova’ Miles. Third oldest son of media mogul, George Miles, he’s a multi millionaire with a reputation of being a bit of a player. Usually with a beautiful supermodel, actress or artist on his arm, he’s paparazzi hot property.
To the outside world it would appear that he laps it all up, but deep down Elliot Miles is a hopeless romantic who is desperate to find ‘the one’. He doesn’t want superficial arm candy or some fame hungry socialite. He wants real love. The fairytale happy ending. He believes his true love is out there and fate will guide them together.
But finding her is proving difficult. Elliot has become obsessed with a reclusive artist, Harriet Boucher through her works of art. He believes her art speaks to him and that it’s all part of some sign. His brothers think he’s mad, but he knows there’s some connection to the paintings and the woman of his dreams.
So imagine the curve ball he finds himself facing when a cheeky CCTV chance glimpse of his arch nemesis, Kathryn, has him suddenly feeling something like attraction. How could the woman he’s termed as the wicked witch be conjuring up these feelings - after 7 years of despising each other it makes no sense that he is having these feelings.
Kathryn (or Kate) also can’t understand why seemingly out of the blue, the man who has made no secret of his dislike for her is suddenly being nice to her - it’s like he’s seeing her for the first time.
There’s a lot of initial hostility as they both try to make reason out of the strange shift in attraction. As the sparks of passion begin to crackle and come to life they both start to see each other for who they are. Kate isn’t at all wicked - she’s still grieving the loss of her parents which makes her wary of being hurt, whilst Elliot is all to aware of how the paparazzi and media can ruin a relationship and he doesn’t want that for Kate.
Gradually they start to develop this amazingly beautiful and hot-as-heck fiery passionate relationship - but Elliot doesn’t want to make their relationship public because the thought of hurting Kate or losing her is too much.
There’s so much to live about this couple. I love Kate’s sassy, strong and no nonsense persona, but she’s vulnerable and very often that is when Elliot truly sees the woman he loves. He will do anything to protect her and keep her safe. He’s never had feelings like this before and even though he can’t bring himself to say it directly - he’s in love with her.
Now there’s lots of fabulous nuances and little twists that constantly keep you thinking and wondering where the plot will lead. The artist, the dating app, the touchy-feely roommate… It’s also very emotive, and you might need a box of tissues. There are so many times when you just want to scream at them both to stop being so damn stubborn and admit they love each other. But, ultimately you really want to see this couple succeed in getting their happily forever after ending. It’s a bumpy road but the ending will have you breathing a huge sigh of overwhelming relief.
Another fantastic TL Swan book. You never disappoint and I can’t wait for more of your work to be published…. Because I’ve read them all now.
I honestly didn’t think this book could be as good as the Takeover but I think it might just be better but that sets the bar high for Christopher’s book when it’s released.
Highly recommended. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The third instalment of the Miles High Club brothers and Elliot did not disappoint!!!! Goodness me he is hotness 🔥 personified.
I love the interactions with his brothers which had me in stitches.
This book evoked every emotion possible, I was laughing out loud, wanting to shout in frustration and crying.
Kate’s character is perfect, her wit and sass are incredibly written, and I absolutely adore how her character grows through the book and the depth of emotion beneath her exterior.
Her and Elliot are a perfect match, but the path is of course not smooth. There are some amazing twists and turns!
I didn’t want this book to end and have the book hangover from hell now.
Phenomenal read from an absolutely phenomenal author!
