Playing with Seduction

Playing with Seduction

by Erika Wilde




Kendall Shaw loves her job as a boudoir photographer. When she enlists hot, gorgeous, 100% alpha male, Jase Burns for a custom photo shoot for a romance novel cover, she quickly discovers that he only took the job to get close to her. But her painful divorce has made her wary of men, and especially one who is eight years younger than she is.

The moment Jase sets his sights on beautiful, sexy Kendall, he wants her. Despite their mutual attraction, she's rejected his every advance. But Jase loves a good challenge, and one steamy, seductive night at The Players Club changes everything between them.

Kendall has never experienced such overwhelming passion, or been pursued so tenaciously. Jase is addicting, in every way, and she soon finds herself falling for a man who doesn't fit into her ideal future.

Can Jase convince Kendall to let go of her past and take a risk on a second chance at love-with him?

Playing with Seduction (The Players Club, #3) by Erika Wilde ....This is my second time reading this book and enjoyed it as much this time as I did the first time. Jase and Kendall have a strong attraction ..but he is younger( he was a late in life child and always felt in his parents way) and she had a bad experience (Her husband who she put through medical school left her for a younger woman ..who he got pregnant) Jase sent her an invitation to THE PLAYERS be auctioned for charity. From there their story gets hot and steamy and she agrees to an affair...That's all I tell will just have to read it yourself... I will say they get to their HEA. Reasons I enjoyed this book: Wonderful characters Romantic Entertaining Happily Ever After Witty Easy-to-read Great world building Steamy Page-turner

Kendall Shaw owns Pure Bliss, a boudoir photography studio. An author wants Kendall to shoot some book covers for her using Jase Burns as the cover model. Since Kendall first met Jase, he has been relentlessly pursuing her. The problem....Jase is 8 years younger than her and after her painful divorce, Kendall is looking for a man who is ready to settle down and start a family, not a gorgeous 27 year old just starting out. Kendall and Jase share a scorching kiss that Kendall feels all the way down to her toes, but she still tells Jase she will not go out with him. Unbeknownst to her, Jase leaves an invitation in Kendall's office to the The Player's Club for the annual silent charity auction where she is invited to be auctioned off as a plaything to one lucky bidder. Kendall's friends convince her to go. At the auction, Kendall mingles with some of the bidders. When they announce the winners, Kendall is taken to a different area to meet her winning bidder. Imagine her surprise when she sees Jase! She's ready to bolt, but he convinces her to stay and at least get what she came looking for! To Kendall's surprise she really clicked sexually with Jase. These two together were hot! The problem was that they were in different places in their lives. Jase finally convinces Kendall to at least be together long enough to get their attraction for each other out of their systems. Kendall starts to realize there is a lot more to Jase than she first thought. Loved the time at Dean and Raina's house! Loved how Jase went all caveman! ;) The confrontation with Adam made Kendall realize that she is wasting precious time in finding someone who will really commit to her, so she breaks things off with Jase. They are both heartbroken. I loved the big reveal at towards the end and how these two found their way back to each other. Their happy ending was great!

5 star The story has laughs, pain, betrayal, suspense, naughty fun, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Playing With Him (The Players Club, #0.5) Playing with Temptation (The Players Club, #1) Playing with Pleasure (The Players Club #2) This is Kendall and Jase’s story. Kendall is a little jaded after her husband left her for a younger woman after she more or less paid off his schooling. She wants Jase but knows they are not in the same place in their life. She is ready to settle down and have kids and he is not yet. It’s in his plan but not for a while. She tries to stay away but when she gets an invite to the players club she can’t pass it up. She is trying dating men her age as Jase is younger but those dates are just not working out. After a wild night with Jase at the players club they just can’t stay away from each other. So they decide on a fling. She is going to move on after the fling but she needs Jase right now. What happens when feelings get involved? Can she let him go? Or will one little surprise have them rethinking everything? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

This is the 3rd book in the Player’s Club series but can be read as a stand-alone. Kendall receives a free pass to the player’s club and is looking to find a hot guy to have some fun with, the only problem is Jase is there and she thinks he is the wrong guy for her but the chemistry between them is on fire. Will she take a chance with him? I enjoyed the story and loved the chemistry between Jase and Kendall. The story was entertaining and held my interest throughout. Enjoyable read!

PLAYING WITH SEDUCTION is the third full-length installment in Erika Wilde’s contemporary, adult The Players Club erotic, romance series. This is security specialist Jase Burns, and professional photographer Kendall Shaw’s storyline. The Players Club is an invitation only, exclusive sex club in the San Diego area. THE PLAYERS CLUB series is a spinoff from Erika’s erotic romance THE MARRIAGE DIARIES series. Told from dual third person perspectives (Jase and Kendall) PLAYING WITH SEDUCTION follows the slow seduction of Kendall Shaw by Jase Burns. For several photography sessions Jase (who is eight years younger than Kendall) has been one of Kendall’s models for a romance cover shoot and has figured prominently in all of Kendall’s fantasies. Jase has been desperately trying to get Kendall to acknowledge their attraction to one another but Kendall has turned down Jase at every opportunity. Following a ten year marriage that ended in divorce, Kendall is ready to settle down and start a family but Jase isn’t ready for a future with a family and kids. What ensues is Jase’s seduction of Kendall for a friends with benefits /casual arrangement that soon turns into something more. The relationship between Kendall and Jase is one of immediate attraction; a sexually palpable energy with plenty of insta-lust, sexual situations, and an invitation to the Players Club where Kendall discovers that the man who stars in all of her fantasies is the man who will bring out the sexual side she thought lost and dormant. The $ex scenes are passionate and sensual although tame in comparison to some of Erika’s previous storylines. The Players Club does not figure prominently in the series or storyline but is a point (and place) where all of the stories connect. The secondary characters include the previous storyline couples as well as the introduction of a man whom Kendall met on-line and believes could possibly be her future husband and mate. The world building focuses on Kendall’s boudoir photography business, as well as the sexual awakening of our leading heroine. Kendall’s dreams of a husband, children and family finds our heroine placing a time frame on her relationship with Jase believing at some point, he too, will get bored and pushing her away. Kendall’s doubts and anxiety about their age difference plays a significant factor in the relationship dynamics for our heroine. PLAYING WITH SEDUCTION is a quick and enjoyable read; a story of insta-lust/love where two people with different objectives find a future with one another. The premise is engaging, promising and enjoyable; the characters are impassioned, cleverly written, and inspiring; the romance is seductive. The happily ever after is not unexpected but I will add that the rush to the finish is a little disappointing and too predictable. I wanted a little more angst and drama.

This latest story in the Player's Club series (of which each can be read as a standalone) uses the backdrop of the Player's Club, a local sex club where any and all fantasies can be indulged, to give the characters a chance for some no holds barred interactions. In this case it's Kendall who gets a free night's pass to the club, and uses it with the intention of finding a hot guy to give her a night to remember. The only problem? That hot guy turns out to be her friend Jase, a security expert who just so happens to have modelled for her at her boudoir photography company. She's resisted his advances before, mostly due to their age difference as she is eight years older than him and her life is on a different path than his. But after one night together at the club, their connection is intense enough to have Kendall reconsidering her feelings about getting involved. Can Jase convince her that together they could have a winning hand? I really enjoyed this story! I like stories with strong female heroines who know their mind and that's the case here. Kendall is proud of her home grown photography business and has no qualms about the move she's made into taking more risque pictures as a boudoir photographer. Jase is doing her a favour by posing for a romance cover shoot, his attractive good looks and comfort in front of the camera making him a great choice for her pictures. She knows that Jase would like to pursue something more with her but she's been burned before. Her ex used her to put him through school, then dumped her, leaving her dreams of children and a loving family in the dust. She's 35 - she wants to be settled and raising children, with a partner who wants the same thing. Jase on the other hand is a playboy, not nearly ready for marriage or settling down. But it doesn't stop him from wanting to pursue a relationship with Kendall, and truthfully his motivation in being a model for her is to get close to her. Just because Jase doesn't want marriage and children at this point in his life doesn't mean he isn't ready for something more intense than the dating, hookup scene. He comes across as a mature and strong man in his own right, and he is a committed and dependable employee at the security firm he works for. After the night they share together at the Player's Club, he's able to convince Kendall that they should explore their connection further. His feelings for Kendall are much stronger than even he expected them to be, and the thought of breaking up with her after their mutually agreed upon fling is over tears at something inside him. With the intense attraction between them, it's no surprise that they share several steamy scenes together. Jase is a commanding presence in the bedroom, and Kendall is happy to let him take charge, though she also brings some toys in for extra fun. Their sex scenes are pretty scorching! But great sex isn't enough and for a while it seems as though the story can't possibly have a happy ending, with two people who are firm in their feelings about the future. For me, that's the mark of a good writer, someone who makes you care enough about the characters that you worry that they won't find a way to compromise, especially when they have very strong held and opposing beliefs about what they are looking for. I wasn't sure how it could possibly come out with a happy ending, but lucky for us it does and the ending is sweet and satisfying. 4.5 stars for this sexy, enjoyable romance!

This installment of the Player's Club series was crazy hot. In true Wilde fashion this story is both erotic and romantic, creating a nearly flawless read. Kendall was a great character, if a bit frustrating at times. It was great watching her come into her own. Jase was hotter than hell and so sweet. I fell in love with him almost immediately. The secondary characters were great and catching up with the couples in the previous books was a treat.

Erika Wilde has a penchant for upping the ante with each new book of hers. Playing with Seduction the chemistry is hotter, the emotions are deeper, and the story shines through (or with) the eroticism and bring the reader in full fold to the wicked world these characters live in. Kendall and Jase's book was an outright pleasant, yummy surprise. I'm usually not a fan of the older woman, younger man storyline, ONLY because they tend to be laden with misconceptions and blow a minor aspect like ago out of proportion. However, in this book the author takes great strides to cement the fact that age is just a number. Although, it is a point of contention between Kendall and Jase, their own actions prove again and again feelings trump age. Every. Single. Time. Given a woman who has a new found insatiable appetite, and a man all too willing to fulfill said appetite Playing with Seduction is an all-out warfare of emotions, breaking down ill-conceived stereotypes, and passion - lots and lots of passion. But all in not fair in love and war, of course. Jase and Kendall both have insecurities that are played on and brought center stage. All the better to deal with them, my dears. It was a game of waiting for the other shoe to drop and wen it did my heart broke. Alas, Ms. Wilde has never once disappointed me in the many books of her's that I've read, and she didn't so now either. Together this is an unstoppable couple. Their tenuous hold on their relationship at first is a bit worrisome, but page by page you see them grip their rope for dear life and there's not much that could bring them down. Once again, an impeccable rendition of steam and heat meeting love and intensity. I've forever be a fan of the series Erika Wilde has founded in these fun-loving, relatable characters and I can't wait to see who's world she turns upside down next! Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Playing with Seduction is the perfect addition to The Players Club series. Kendall is a sweet heroine, whose sex life had been dull and boring (and nonexistent for a while). Jase, the hot, ex-military turned security guy, brings all kinda of sexiness in to her life. The chemistry between the two was crazy hot, even when Kendall tried to deny she wanted Jase. It was nice to see Kendall come out of her shell with some help from Jase. I loved seeing how other characters that were featured in previous books were doing, and how they played a hand in Kendall and Jase's book. This story drew me in, and I couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a hot steamy read

After reading and enjoying Playing with Pleasure it really was a no brainer to pick up the next in the series when it became available and I found Playing with Seduction to be just as engaging, fun, sexy and well written as it’s predecessor. The previous book was about second chances, and while this one has a similar theme it is also about timing and learning that even the most well thought out plans don’t always work out they way we want them to. I liked Jase from the moment we meet him and as the book progressed I decided I wanted my own Jase. He’s sweet, charming, intelligent and when he decides to go all hot and sexy alpha male, look out because you won’t want to say no. His upbringing and why he chose to enter the military was quite interesting, and a little heartbreaking, but gives great insight into what motivates him, as well as why he has made, and is making, the choices he has. Kendall was one of those characters that I liked and understood why she was the way she was. She’s sweet, hardworking and loyal to those who are her friends. She’s built up her own business and is enjoying that aspect of her life, but she was hurt badly by her ex and now that she’s worked through that pain and moved on she has a “plan” as to how the rest of her life will play out. I liked the way Kendall and Jase’s relationship progressed, and give total kudo’s to how Jase upped his game to get his woman because it was genius and smokin’ hot, and as the story moves along we get to see Kendall become more comfortable in her own skin, which Jase definitely helps with. I also liked the way that the author handled the age issue. There were a few ways that it could have been dealt with, but the path that was taken showed how mature they both were and kept things from getting overly dramatic. The Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a fun, quick, need to take a cold shower read, this is one is for you! ~ ARC provided by Rock Star PR in exchange for an honest review ~
