Playing With Temptation (The Player’s Club, Book #1)
Release Date: March 23, 2015
When Raina Beck is given an invitation to The Players Club, all she wants is a night of decadence with a gorgeous, sexy stranger. The seductive, mysterious man she meets fulfills her deepest desires and most erotic fantasies, giving her a night she’ll never forget. But forgetting him isn’t quite so easy.
Logan Cruz prefers his women submissive and compliant in the bedroom . . . everything the independent Raina is not. Yet from the first moment he lays eyes on her, he’s determined to make Raina his. Despite her resistance.
When Logan is assigned to protect Raina from a stalker, everything between them changes. Sex becomes more than just physical, and emotions run deep. Falling in love was never on Raina’s agenda, but can she let go of the past and surrender the one thing he wants the most . . . her heart?
This is a nice erotica that gets the blood flowing!
The passionate relationship between the main characters kept me enthralled throughout, but there was a lot going on in the background. Raina and Logan have the perfect chemistry, but she’s got a great deal of emotional baggage to ditch. I couldn’t quite relate with her, as far as how she’s judged due to her occupation or the fact that she even cares, but once paired with Logan she loosens up a bit. Logan; however, handles his affairs accordingly and knows exactly what he wants. Strong and domineering, he is a force that perseveres.
I loved the sensuality of the book, as it’s written in a perfectly naughty manner, but Logan was my hook! Raina lacked the essential unwavering confidence that’s necessary for a heroine, but when she’s on her game she’s great. The mystery is enough to keep one in suspense, and the lead into the next installment is intriguing. I enjoyed this read, but it was all about the sex for me!
About The Author
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.
