Playing with Temptation by Erika Wilde

Playing With Temptation (The Player’s Club, Book #1) by Erika Wilde 

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?



~~Review By Blanca ~~

I really enjoyed this book it has just the right amount of suspense, sexiness and drama. Raina owns an adult toy store and has achieved everything in her life by her own drive, she is a strong, hardworking and highly independent woman. Her past relationships lead her to live out a life purely dedicated to her work and no time to actually let anyone in to her heart the one person she did hurt her even more and from that moment on she chose to live her life with no commitments to anyone but herself. She has struggled to overcome the unfair judgment and treatment from her own parents and ex-fiancé that she doesn't feel worthy of love. Her inner struggles makes you realize how much pain she has had to endure throughout her life that have led her to close herself off from love.

Logan is a sexy alpha male who personifies strength, dominance and passion by his looks alone, but once you get to truly know him his personality will make you fall deeply in love with him. His past has shaped who he is now he hasn't let anyone in and has devoted himself to only work and the occasional encounter. His dominance is strikingly appealing. One invitation to The Players Club will change both of their life's forever.

Raina and Logan have an instant connection the instant they see each other, their connection only intensifies and they share a passionate encounter that only leaves them wanting more from each other. Raina is not so accommodating, she can't allow herself to feel anything more for this marvelous man who has clearly ruined her for any other man. What Raina doesn't realize is that Logan is determined to get his way and the future holds so many unexpected surprises. 

Logan is assigned to be Raina's bodyguard and protect her from a stalker from there their chemistry only ignites a deeper need for each other. They both have to learn to finally give in to each other in order to let go of their past and trust that they can make their love prosper. I would have liked to have seen more definite closure between this dynamic couple but glad I will hopefully get to see more of them in the next book in this series. Overall it was a great read!



  “Tell me something,” he murmured as he caressed the sensitive crease of her elbow with a stroke of his thumb, gratified to see the pulse at her neck flutter at his touch and her eyes darken with that same desire he’d witnessed last night. Even her nipples beaded against the pretty pink dress she wore. “Are you more afraid of me or the stalker?” Her gaze turned guarded, contradicting the sugary-sweet smile she gave him. “I’m not afraid of you.” No, not in a threatening sense, but physically he could feel her resistance. Hell, the way she’d bolted on him last night was a clear indicator that the combustible chemistry between them had spooked her. Given this second chance, he planned to take full advantage of their time together and the attraction that hadn’t dissipated one iota. But first, he needed to knock down some of those walls she’d erected between the two of them. “Maybe you should be afraid of me,” he said, giving her a wolfish smile. “Because I’m itching to put you over my knee and spank you for being so insubordinate last night.” Her brows shot up, and then the most beautiful thing happened — that strong, confident woman he’d met last night at the club reappeared right before his eyes. Fire and sass sparked in her gaze, making him hard in a flash. “Oh, I’d like to see you try.” He flat-out grinned, welcoming this more flirtatious side to Raina. He lowered his head closer to hers, so that his mouth was near her ear. “Sweetheart, it would be my greatest pleasure to feel your smooth ass beneath the palm of my hand. But I don’t think that Dean or Mac would appreciate me doing so right here in their conference room. However, if you’d like to wrestle it out later to see who comes out on top, I’m certainly game.” She gaped at him, though there was no misinterpreting the amusement in her gaze. With the awkwardness between them finally dispelled, he released her arm but didn’t step away. “Now let’s get you to work before I change my mind and give everyone in the office a titillating peep show, with your bare ass as the main attraction.”

About Erika Wilde:

 Erika Wilde

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.

Q/A with Erika:

How did you come up with the idea for this story?

PLAYING WITH TEMPTATION is a spin-off series from The Marriage Diaries. While writing those stories, other characters started appearing on the page, and once I introduced The Players Club, I knew that those secondary characters needed to get their own stories!

  Where do you find your inspiration? 

I find my inspiration in everyday life, watching a TV show where a situation I'm watching turns into an idea, or reading a magazine article that sparks my imagination. Nothing is off limits!

  Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? 

Everything, LOL! Seriously, the more books I write, the harder it gets, probably because I'm always striving to write better, and fresh and new plots and conflicts. Luckily I have a great critique partner who helps me through those challenges.

  What are your current projects?

I just finished up the 6th volume in my Marriage Diaries series, and I'm now concentrating on The Players Club. I don't write more than one series at a time.

  Tell us about your first book. What would readers find different about the first one and your most recent published work? 

Well, my first book, published back in 1995, was written as Janelle Denison, and it was a paranormal/angel type story called KISS OF AN ANGEL. Considering that was 20 years ago, I think my writing style has changed dramatically. I also think my writing is tighter, and much sexier, too!

  Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? 

The main message is to be who you are, and don't change for anyone. You will find someone who will love you just the way you are.
