Playing with Pleasure coverTitle:  Playing with Pleasure

Series:  Players Club Book #2

Author:  Erika Wilde

Genre:  Romance/Erotica


Paige Moore has a fulfilling business designing couture corsets for her high profile clientele, but her love life is sorely lacking. Being burned in the worst way possible by Sawyer Burrows has left her guarded and wary when it comes to men and their motives. When her best friend presents her with an invitation to The Players Club, she embraces the chance to enjoy a hot night with a stranger, and finally put her past heartbreak, and Sawyer, behind her.

Sawyer knows he devastated Paige with his careless actions a year and a half ago, and he’s lived every day since with those regrets. Now, seeing Paige at The Players Club, he knows this is his chance to make amends and prove that there is still something between them worth pursuing. If sensual pleasure is what Paige is looking for, then he intends to be the man to spend the night seducing every part of her.

Paige’s surrender is Sawyer’s ultimate goal, but once her desires are sated, will she give them the second chance they deserve?

Thoughts:  If you haven’t read in of the books in this series before, I would describe it as ‘mild erotica’. The style reminds me a bit of a Roni Loren only much more toned down. A few pages in, I almost put it down though – I was sure that there was no way Sawyer was going to redeem himself and get back in my good graces, much less have Paige forgive him! Surprisingly, the author managed to swing it in such a way that you actually wind up feeling sorry for the guy. I’m not sure that I would wind up with him in a sex club quite as quickly as Paige, especially without hearing what really happened with the whole past situation that broke them up in the first place. To be honest, I was expecting for her to unknowingly wind up with him in the club…and (gasp) find out that the guy she just indulged in such sensual pleasure with was her ex! Whether it be a mask, a dark room that shadows his face…I don’t know, something! Alas, it doesn’t quite work that way. However, the author puts her own spin on it and makes it work.

All in all, a very good read…J
