[Blog Tour + Review] Playing His Way by Erika Wilde

Playing His Way, an all-new sexy standalone from Erika Wilde is now LIVE!




As the new owner of The Players Club, Brent "Mac" MacMillan is all about dirty sex, wicked sin and carnal pleasure . . . served up his way.  After being burned in the past, he's always been careful to choose experienced females who enjoy submitting to his dark desires, and are willing to play by his demanding rules without expecting any emotional attachments in return.

Hiring beautiful interior designer Stephanie Randall to create fantasy bedrooms within his club is his first mistake.  She's curious, flirtatious, and makes his blood run hotter than it ever has before.  Innocent when it comes to all the debauchery his sinful world has to offer, she wants to take a walk on the wild side . . . with him.  

His second mistake?  Saying yes.  And his third?  Falling for the one woman he knows he can never have.




Stephanie strolled toward Mac, a mischievous glimmer suddenly brightening her gorgeous blue eyes, putting him on alert.  "I'd like to attend the Masquerade party at The Players Club on Saturday, to get a better feel for the club and what other fantasy elements might work for your members."
      He stiffened at her unexpected request.  The temptation of having her in this domain—wanting her but refusing to touch her—wasn't something he wanted to endure.  And watching her possibly hook up with someone else, like Rick?  Complete fucking agony. 
      He shook his head.  "I don't think attending the Masquerade party is necessary.  I'm sure you can come up with a few other ideas without being here when everything is in full swing, which is probably going to be more distracting, than helpful."
      "What if I want to be here?" the little vixen proposed, her voice holding a hint of a challenge.  "You know, to mix a little business with pleasure?"
      His expression remained composed, his resolve, firm.  "I'm going to have to say no."
      She tipped her head to the side, studying him much too astutely.  "I can always get an invitation from Jillian, you know," she said as she came closer and closer. 
      "No, you can't," he countered.  "I put a freeze on any new invitations until I'm done going through the current membership."
      She laughed softly, huskily, the sound like a stroke along his cock.  Much like her hand was suddenly stroking down the length of his tie before giving it a playful tug.  "Do I make you nervous, Mac?"
      His hands curled into fists in his pockets, because it was taking extreme effort not to grasp her face in his palms and kiss that soft, plush, impudent mouth of hers—hot and hard and deep.  "Do I look like a man who'd be intimidated by any woman?" he asked, his voice surprisingly steady. 
      She thought about that for a brief moment before giving her hair a subtle toss and replying.  "Intimidated, no."  Then a sexy, knowing smile curved her lips.  "Nervous, definitely, because if you weren't a little uneasy about whatever this thing is between us, you wouldn't have an issue with me coming to the Masquerade party and being at the club."
      "The last thing you make me feel is uneasy."  Instead, her presence had lust pumping through him like a heady surge of adrenaline.  She was certainly testing his control. 
      Her free hand came back up and splayed on his chest, the heat of her touch searing him through his dress shirt.  "If I don't make you nervous, then prove it," she cajoled.  "Let me come to the party on Saturday.  I promise not to be too shocked by what I see." 
      His jaw clenched as she met his gaze and held it, so bold and brazen when she really had no idea what she was messing with, or what he was capable of.  This woman was no shrinking violet, and she was the furthest thing from the kind of  submissive, obedient female he preferred—and Jesus, Christ, his dick was hard as stone for her.  This was a woman who liked having the advantage, who enjoyed a little power play, and fuck if that didn't make him want to pin her against the wall behind her and make it very clear who really had the upper hand between them. 
      "So, what will it be, Mr. MacMillan?" she murmured huskily.  "Inviting me to the club on Saturday, or are you going to chicken out?"



4.5 Stars from Renee!

The story has laughs, pain, 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)
Playing with Seduction (The Players Club #3)

This is Stephanie and Mac’s story. Mac is all about pleasure without emotions. He enjoys woman who submit to his dark desires but will not provide any emotions during the playing. He was burned in the past and is determined not to do a repeat. When he hires Stephanie to create fantasy rooms within the club he knows things are changing. He is hot for her and she makes all kinds of emotions come out in him. When she wants to know all about to club and to experience it he knows he should say no but does not. Now he’s falling but knows that she is not the right woman for him. Can he figure out how to keep his heart safe or will he lose it to her forever? Can Stephanie get Mac to see she is the one for him? That she is falling just as much as she thinks he is? Or is he about to push her away forever? 

I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. 

I highly recommend this book.


4.5 Stars from Brianna!

Erika Wilde is simply fantastic at what she does. Granted I've read her more when she's co-writing with someone but I know enough to love her words. And when I want my dominant and dirty alpha, I know she always delivers the best ones. The Players Club is a sexy and intense series compromised of standalone books... packed with loads of heart, heat, forbidden desires, and passion.

One job. One offer. One life changing experience.

Playing His Way is the fourth standalone in this series and it was absolutely brilliant and crazy intense with deep emotions, more so than I expected. Stephanie and Mac captivated me from the moment they appeared on my kindle and by the time their journey was over, I was left with a wicked, wicked hangover. Their chemistry was undeniable and every moment between them was unforgettable.

He's a man who needs control at all times, in and out of the bedroom. No feelings and no attachments... just sex, the dirtier the better. That is until she walks into his life and shakes up his world, making him feel things he doesn't want, determined to keep her out of his heart... but she's more determined and nothing will stop her until she's broken down every single one of his walls. 

Run to this one then you'll be binging the books before this.

I highly recommend this book.



Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison) is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.
