This was the first book I have read by this author. It left you guessing til the end who her stalker was, and it was a surprise I didnt see coming. The chemistry between the characters was a little tense for forced, but still believable enough to enjoy. I will be looking in the next book to see if maybe there is more to the story of Sawyer cheating than meets the eye? Guess I'll be finding out :)

I just stumbled across this series and I'm so glad. I'm not the best at writing reviews. Mostly because I rarely find the right words to clue the next reader that this steamy read is worthy of their time. Besides as a hobby writer myself I can't be critical when its written so well and reads smoothly and definitely invites the reader into the characters passionate world. I will be reading more!,

I received a copy of Playing with Temptation in exchange for an honest review...and I can honestly say I really enjoyed it! If you've read the other reviews then you know what the story is about, no need give a repeat. What I will add is how much I appreciate a well written story, one that is clean and precise, that always moves forward. That's hot and sexy, with amazing characters that you can really relate too. I'm so looking forward to reading many more books by Erika Wilde...join me...and happy reading:)

A love worth fighting for. Raina Beck has a stalker and the morning after her night at The Players Club the stalker makes himself known. The security specialist assigned to her case is none other than the man she ran from at The Players Club, Logan Cruz. What follows is a well-written story of love, understanding, healing, growth, and overwhelming love which will leave you breathless. This is a beautifully written start to this series. **Received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review**

When Raina experiences one night of passion at the Player's Club with a handsome stranger, she's quite content keeping things anonymous and has no plans to return. But when she is threatened by a stalker she turns to her friend's husband who runs a security company - and comes face to face with her stranger when he is assigned to work her case. Logan is good at what he does and protecting Raina at her erotic boutique is no hardship, especially when it gives him the chance to get her back into his arms again. Now that things are out in the open, can he convince her that what they experienced together could become part of a long lasting relationship? I really enjoyed this story. I picked it up on the recommendation of a friend and based on the synopsis thought it would be an interesting read. Right from the start Logan and Raina have an intense sexual chemistry. When Logan takes on the position of her bodyguard, it's not long before he's got her right where he wants her. Logan comes across as a typical alpha male but with a sweet side to him and his concern for Raina is genuine. He is determined to find out who is threatening her, and to protect her from anyone who wishes her harm. Raina is a lovely woman, friendly, caring and with a damaged heart. She's had trouble with relationships, mostly because the men she dates are either threatened by her sex shop or assume she's easy. In her experience, as soon as a man wants to introduce her to his family, he wants her to end her career too, one that she is proud of having built from the ground up. But because of Logan's sexual experience and membership at the Player's Club, he isn't intimidated at all by her shop and in fact is quite happy to do some shopping there himself, to entice Raina and show her that he's up for any games she might want to play. Logan is determined to show her that he is strong enough to defend her and that he respects her career choice. The suspense plot, with someone threatening Raina at her home and her work, is fairly predictable (there aren't a lot of possible suspects) but was well handled and comes to an action packed conclusion. Combine that with the steamy interludes between Raina and Logan (plentiful and inventive) and you've got a very sexy romance with a satisfying happy ending. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series! 4.5 stars.

Playing with Temptation was well worth the wait. Raina the owner of an adult toy store has never had much luck with men. She always seems to pic the wrong ones. Jillian, one of her closest friends decides Raina is long overdue for a night of fantasy and has the invitation needed for just such a night. Raina visits The Players Club and a night to remember. There she meets Logan but leaves before they exchange names figuring she will never see him again. The next morning she finds handcuffs on her door and a note. She gets together with her friends prepared to tell them the details of the night before, but instead tells them about the handcuffs and note. Jillian calls her husband and sends Raina to meet him and his team to figure out who it might be and to make sure she is safe. One of Dean's partners just happens to be Logan, the man from the night before. who is assigned to protect her until they solve the mystery. Logan and Raina have mad chemistry and sparks fly. What seems like a short-term assignment just might be Logans forever. Raina is in it for the short-term, but can her heart resist the chemistry between her and Logan? Who is Raina's stalker? I could not put this book down. It was well written from beginning to end and Logan, oh my, he is everything you would want in a man. Erika Wilde wrote a very sexy exciting story that will hook you on the first page and keep you turning pages until the end. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book.

Raina goes to The Players Club for a night of fun and finds everything she is looking for with Logan Cruz. When danger finds her Logan is the one who ends up protecting her, but who will protect her heart from Logan. The story is entertaining and the sex scenes are HOT. A was hoping for a little more depth with the characters but I did enjoy the read.

4.5 star The story has laughs, pain, betrayal, suspense, naughty fun, and heartbreak.  This is Raina and Logan’s story. After accepting an invitation to a players club Raina has a perfect night of fun.  Until she runs out on the man and he almost catches her leaving the club.  When something happens after that night that scares her she is sent to a protection agency.  Once at the protection agency she comes face to face with her “player” from her one night at the club.  Logan knows he wants more time but when he is tasked with protecting Raina can he keep his business and pleasure separated?  Can they work together to get to know each other outside of the players club and also find the stalker?   Will Raina still want Logan after the danger is gone?  Or is she just keeping him around so he can fight off the danger?        I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.  I highly recommend this book.

I had no idea Erika Wilde was Janelle Denison's pseudonym or vice versa. I read Janelle's books back in the early 2000s.  Well more like I devoured them. They were hot, really sexy, and funny.  Of course I didn't find out she started writing under another name until about five minutes ago, but that doesn't matter.  Her writing is till hot and really sexy.  This time her stories are heavier on the erotica and BDSM, but they're still really good! I'm usually not a fan of insta-lust, and this is how the connection between Logan and Raina starts.  They act on it and it's scorching hot especially since they never exchange names.  Raina is surprised to see Logan so soon after their encounter especially when she seems him in a different location under different circumstances.  It was easy to tell they weren't finished with each other.  Going back to that insta-lust.  I liked how the chemistry between them changed from gratifying their sexual desires to actually getting to know and like each other.  That gave the story more of an erotic romance feeling as opposed to just erotica. I also liked the suspense element although it seemed more of an after thought to the relationship Logan and Raina were developing.  The identity of the stalker was a surprise to me, which was good.  I also liked Raina's friends.  They were good moral support for her going to The Player's Club and for everything afterwards as well. Now that I know where to find Janelle/Erika's books, I know I'm going to have a good time catching up with what she's written.  If you're fan of erotic romance, I'd recommend you check out the books under both Janelle Denison and Erika Wilde.

As a reader who loves her stories spicy, this book practically singed my fingers while reading it.With a crackling connection between its main couple, with a bit of danger to keep everyone on edge, I was fully engaged from the first page to the last.Juggling both steamy encounters with intense emotions has become a trademark of Ms. Wilde and is once again on display here.Along with a satisfying amount of steam comes issues of trust and overcoming past pain which are dealt with in a mature way to keep the story flowing beautifully.Add in a likable main couple and an entertaining cast of secondary characters and you end up with a promising start to a new series. Raina is a strong and proud businesswoman tired of being labeled for owning an adult boutique.Too many times men have found her good enough to sleep with but not good enough to bring home.Being treated as a dirty little secret has her turning her back on love and relationships.For her, one night is enough as she now wants to be the one in control and the one to love 'em and leave 'em.A friend's invitation to a sex club turns her newfound plan upside down though as she meets an enigmatic man who understands her deepest desires and longs to give her exactly what she's long dreamed of.Like Cinderella, she leaves without giving him her name, never expecting to see him again.Fate has other plans however and when a stalker sets his sights on her the mystery man might be the only one to save her.He unsettles her though as he pushes her emotional boundaries and delves into her painful past.Raina's childhood was one of constant emotional upheaval with a mother too cowed to keep Raina safe which has Raina valuing control above all now.Men have left her untrusting of their motives and her heart firmly closed off, so it will take a very strong man to get her to open up. Logan is just the man for the job though as he's strong-willed and confident, but with a caring and loyal side too.He was also burned by love in the past by those closest to him which has him doubting love as well.Until the night he sees Raina no woman has intrigued him for longer than one night, but seeing Raina has him wanting to take the time to discover all her different layers.He's not shy about what he enjoys in the bedroom and sees Raina as his perfect match.Their sexual connection is instantaneous as his sexy narrative to her upon meeting her made me melt.Luckily fate threw them together to allow him to connect with her on a deeper emotional level that was full of push and pull as she didn't make it easy for him.Keeping her safe from a stalker is a 24-hour job which keeps them constantly together to show their ever evolving relationship that's thankfully not riddled with too much angst.There is LOTS of sexiness though which was both playful and erotic to keep it from becoming bland.Logan is ultimately a good book boyfriend..very alpha, but in a way that's sexy and supportive.He's encouraging of her to embrace those hidden desires she once found dirty and together they make love look dirty and fun. The eroticism of this story is immensely satisfying as a basis for Raina and Logan growing closer and deepening their emotional connection.The stalker also brought them together but this part of the story wasn't dealt with as fully as I'd hoped.What should've been suspenseful was kept too much in the background to make much of an impact.With its two strong leads though this book is a delicious temptation and satisfying re

Raina Beck and Logan Cruz met at The Players Club and had an amazing experience together.  He knew as soon as he saw her that he had to have her and once wouldn't be enough.  After their first time together she left without even giving him her name.  The next day she awoke with evidence of a stalker at her front door.  When she goes to a friends security company for help, who do you think her bodyguard turns out to be?  Yes, none other than her anonymous, ultra sexy partner from the night at the club, Logan Cruz. Fantastic book!  Extremely well written.  The dirty talk was AWESOME!  Raw, masculine and oh so sexy Logan Cruz is now in the running for Book Boyfriend of the year!  He knows what he wants and doesn't stop until he gets it.  I truly enjoyed my first book written by the talented Erika Wilde and I am definitely a fan!  I can't wait for book two in The Players Club series. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Raina Beck just wanted a night of great sex with a total stranger, someone who won't judge her because she owns an adult toy store. Raina's friend Jillian Noble gives her an invitation to The Players Club, an exclusive, private sex club where you can explore all levels of kink. Raina decides to give the club a try and meets a handsome stranger whom she is immediately attracted to. They get together in an explosive, orgasmic way and then Raina freaks out and quickly leaves. As she is getting into her car to drive away, she hears the man chasing her calling out asking her to stop. Instead, she just leaves. The next day Raina goes to meet her friends for their monthly Coffee and Cocks Club get together when she finds handcuffs and a note attached to the outside of her door. The note says "I know you like it rough." and it scares the crap out of Raina. She quickly leaves and joins her friends. At breakfast, she tells her friends what happened. Jillian immediately calls her husband, Dean, who owns a security company. Dean wants to see Raina right away. Raina goes to talk to Dean and his partner Mac and tells them how the night before she went to the club and left feeling a little unsettled. They agree that she needs to have a body guard with her until they catch the person stalking her. Guess who her body guard is? Yep, the sexy stranger she was with at the club, who she thought might be her stalker! Enter Logan Cruz. I LOVED these two together. They were both so alpha, but yet compassionate at the same time. I loved how protective Logan became of Raina so quickly. He just knew deep down that she was someone special. I really enjoyed their back stories and what made each of them what they are. I thought Logan's family was fun and really loved his relationship with his niece Hannah. The final reveal of Raina's stalker's identity was good and suspenseful. I really loved their happy ending and the sweet words Logan said to Raina. I loved how she had to come to the realization of what he truly meant to her. Great story and I can't wait to read Paige's story!

Erika is an amazing author! Another awesome read! There is light BDSM in this book. Raina goes to The Player's Club for sex with a stranger. Logan sees her from afar and takes her on the couch, shortly thereafter. Despite Logan wanting her to return, Raina leaves after she freshens up. Returning home, she finds handcuffs and a note on her door. Freaked out, she calls her friend who has her go into the security firm that her husband homes. Raina is given a bodyguard till the can find out who is stalking her. Yep, you guessed it, the bodyguard is Logan. They both lust for each other they agree as long as Logan is protecting her, they will sleep together. Both have been burned in previous relationships so when the job is done, they have to decide if they can continue a relationship. Can't wait to read the next Player's Club book!

I've been waiting for this first book in The Player's Club series since it was hinted at in the author's previous series, The Marriage Diaries. You don't need to read the previous series since this book stands alone. I really liked the connection between Raina and Logan. It was both hot and sweet. Add in a bit of suspense and you have a great read! I'm looking forward to the next book now!
