***Full length, stand-alone novel. No cliffhangers!***
PLEASURE HAS NEVER BEEN SO DECADENT . . .
Paige Moore has a fulfilling business designing couture corsets for her high profile clientele, but her love life is sorely lacking. Being burned in the worst way possible by Sawyer Burrows has left her guarded and wary when it comes to men and their motives. When her best friend presents her with an invitation to The Players Club, she embraces the chance to enjoy a hot night with a stranger, and finally put her past heartbreak, and Sawyer, behind her.
Sawyer knows he devastated Paige with his careless actions a year and a half ago, and he's lived every day since with those regrets. Now, seeing Paige at The Players Club, he knows this is his chance to make amends and prove that there is still something between them worth pursuing. If sensual pleasure is what Paige is looking for, then he intends to be the man to spend the night seducing every part of her.
Paige's surrender is Sawyer's ultimate goal, but once her desires are sated, will she give them the second chance they deserve?
I love it when I get totally sucked into a book and have a difficult time putting it down when real life beckons and I was totally sucked into this one. Playing with Pleasure had it all for me. It was a fun, second chance at love story filled with a good mix of sweet and very sexy moments, the right amount of drama to keep things interesting and well written characters that I’d love to have as friends.
I adored Paige and Sawyer. Paige is sweet, fun and has a quiet confidence that shines through when others do their best to put her down. She also has a generous nature which at times may make her seem like a pushover, but she really isn’t. She simply chooses to not deal with the bullshit and focus on the good things that are going on in her life. Sawyer is sexy as sin, dominant in all the right way and forthright. I honestly thought I’d have issues with him considering what had happened with Paige, but that never happened and in the end I really wouldn’t mind having a Sawyer of my own.
Then there is Paige and Sawyer together. They were pretty damn smexy and I was definitely not expecting what happened at The Players Club to happen, but can’t complain. They definitely had chemistry together and you could tell that they genuinely liked each other. But what I loved the most is how they finally dealt with the ‘unfortunate incident’ because they approached it like adults. Sawyer manned up and admitted to it, though there was a little twist in there and there was a bit of hesitation on Paige’s part, but she didn’t drag it out or blow it out of proportion.
The Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a fun, quick, well written second chance at love story this one is for you!
Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.
So, why the new pen name?
As Janelle Denison I’ve always written sexy books, but lately my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance.
However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an
emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with.
That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or
more erotically charged stories.
Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and
Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage. The series will be
on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want
to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.
I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men
that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates.
