The second book in Erika Wilde’s latest book is a modern take on the fairytale Cinderella. Having read the first book I was excited to see what she had in store for Hunter Wilder. Hunter is definitely a dominating alpha male who ticked the boxes for me. He is always in control, unemotional and closed off to all but his brother and sister after the death of his parents and fiancée. Gabriella (Elle) Darien is struggling to run her realty business after her father’s death, not helped by a step mother who is determined to destroy the company. When he they meet at the ball his family is hosting they both decide to throw caution to the wind and a night of passion brings these two broken people together. The last thing Elle wants or needs in her hectic life is a relationship and yet there is something about Hunter that tempts her. Leaving the next morning, Hunter decides that is must find her. I really loved Hunter and Elle, the chemistry between them was all consuming. There was angst, drama, tears and laughter and the scenes between them were hot and spicy. Absolute Pleasure also contains one heck of a plot twist that just added to the enjoyment and kept me on he edge of my seat.

Absolute Pleasure focuses on the second sibling of the Wilder family, Hunter. the timeframe crosses over with that of the first book, Total Surrender. While Absolute Pleasure does a terrific job of recapping the pertinent details of the family dynamics and the events of Total Surrender, I do think the series should be read in order to fully appreciate the plot and not be blindsided by some necessary spoilers within Absolute Pleasure. The Cinderella vibe is strong within the narrative although Gabriella is an unwitting Cinderella with a side of Snow White thrown into the mix. Gabriella is kind and considerate and as such has been manipulated by her step-mother and step-sisters. Greed and power are the impetus to evil no matter the setting. Hunter is an alpha version of Prince Charming with a side of dominant. He and Gabriella immediately click at the Wilder Fairytale Ball; neither want or need a relationship and one night of passion is just the escape they both need. Although they didn’t factor in their intense connection beyond the physical, resulting in further dalliances without the expectation of more. Yet some things are unavoidable; the understanding they have for each other can only be achieved by meeting the perfect match. There are moments of angst and a lot of intensity within Absolute Pleasure but there is also a whole lot of swoon. Absolute Pleasure is a wonderful adult fairytale.

I absolutely loved the modern take on this classic fairy tale. Hunter is the perfect dirty Prince Charming to Elle's heartbreaking damsel in distress Cinderella. The steamy scenes are hot and the overall storyline is absolute perfection! Hunter Wilder isn't exactly Prince Charming, but he does come to Elle's rescue at a charity ball. When Elle's stepmother purposely left off her name on the RSVP list and she was about to be turned away, Hunter steps forward and claims her as his date which leads to a night they both wouldn't soon forget. Hunter doesn't normally do long term relationships, but Elle makes him forget every reason why he shuts people out. However, Elle didn't have time for a relationship in her life so the morning after she quickly flees Hunter's apartment, abandoning one of her shoes behind. Hunter isn't about to let Elle off the hook quite so easily, but he does have his work cut out for him in tracking her down. You see, Elle wasn't on the guest list, nor had they exchanged last names the night before and it just so happens that Elle hadn't even her given full first name. Can Prince Charming find his Cinderella again? Or will Ella's wicked stepmother win in this twisted tale?

I loved Hunter and Elle’s amazing story in Absolute Pleasure by Erika Wilde, book two in her Dirty Sexy Fairy Tales Series. After the death of his parents Hunter Wilder no longer believed in happy-ever-afters. The death of Elaina "Elle" Darien’s father left her with a wicked stepmother, and two step-sisters, intent on sabotaging and destroying the business her parents worked so hard to create. Although Elle might be a damsel in distress, she is in no desire of a prince; she doesn’t have the time. Elle’s best friend plays fairy godmother to get her ready for the Wilder’s big blast despite the RSVP being sent in without her name. When Hunter witnesses the cruelty and taunts of Elle’s stepmother, he steps in and makes Elle his date for the night. However, one night will never be enough for Hunter and Elle is too busy trying to save her parent’s real estate business. Elle never deserved the treatment or hatred from her stepmother or step-sisters and has no idea how to turn things around. When Hunter discovers Elle being poisoned by her stepmother he turns into protective mode and is determined that Elle get her parent’s business and take away her step-mother’s power. It will take a lot of trust and belief for these two damaged souls before they are willing to take a chance on finding their fairy tale ending. Ms. Wilde wrote a wonderful, sexy story; filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters, giving Hunter and Elle a way to be together and get the fairy tale ending neither expected to ever find. I highly recommend Absolute Pleasure to other readers and look forward to the next in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
