Review – Well Built by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde

Well Built cover

Review graphic

Ohhhhhh, mercy! This series just gets better with every single book. I cannot say that enough. Well Built was just incredible. This is the second chance love story for a love that should have been all along. It’s angsty, full of misunderstandings. It’s sexy and sinful. How can anyone deny that Kyle Coleman is absolutely divine? Ella Fisher certainly cannot. I devoured this sensational story!

Kyle and Ella were high school sweethearts. They had siblings who were very much less than perfect, causing a rift between the the Colemans and Fishers that ran way deeper than anyone ever imagined. When forced to take sides, Kyle chooses Chicago and Ella chooses her father. Fast forward ten years and the successful Kyle Coleman has returned to make his mother’s dreams a reality – at the cost of Ella’s. One thing hasn’t changed in ten years though – these two have unfinished business. There’s no being just friends with these two. There’s no mending the fences and just being neighbors. These two are a smoldering coal ready to go full flame. Kyle left once and no way is he leaving what’s his again.

When I started this one, there was no way to put it down. No way not to be drawn into this fantastic second chance. Kyle and Ella have grown up but haven’t moved on. They have tried to move past what they felt as kids but watching them recapture first their friendship and then their love was just amazing. Both are so devoted to family but with a two very different approaches, and who can’t love a man so devoted to his mother’s total happiness? I fell so hard. How could I not? This was another dynamic book by Carly and Erika. Now to see what Connor gets into…

Fantastic, ladies. Again.

Five City Boy Stars!

When it comes to women, sexy, well-built Kyle Coleman has always been a lover, not a fighter. His one exception? The sassy, tempting, smart-mouthed Ella Fisher. Her family and his are sworn enemies, which make the two of them off-limits—despite the fact that she’s inspired some of his dirtiest, most erotic fantasies for years. But when the lines between animosity and lust become irrevocably blurred one fateful evening, their one night stand leads to a very unexpected consequence—that changes everything between them forever.

As they stared at one another and Ella’s smile faded away, Kyle reached out and dragged the pad of his thumb along her soft cheek and didn’t hold back what he was feeling. “Is it selfish of me that I’m glad that you’re stuck in the city and here with me right now?”

​”No,” she whispered, not bothering to hide the longing and desire shining in her eyes. “Is it selfish of me that I want you, even knowing it can only be for this one night?”

​Another bold and daring invitation that was wreaking havoc with his dwindling willpower. “Ella . . . ” His voice was gruff as he watched her tongue shyly skim across her full bottom lip. “You’re making it so damn hard to be good.”

​”I don’t want you to be good. I really want you to be bad. With me.”

​She lifted her hand and touched the cool tips of her fingers against the hollow of his throat, then slowly, gradually caressed them down the middle of his chest, along his abs, and followed the thin trail of hair that led to the waistband of his boxer briefs and the hard length of his eager cock.

​He groaned, his chest heaving, and before she could cup him in her hand, he grabbed her hips and hauled her body up against his. She gasped, her eyes widening, but not in shock. No, they were fucking triumphant because she’d finally gotten what she wanted.

​Then again, when it came to Ella, she’d been his greatest weakness, and he’d always given her whatever she desired. Why had he thought this would be any different?

​He backed her up, and when her ass hit the edge of his dining table, he lifted her so she was sitting on the flat surface. Holding her gaze, he pushed her thighs wide apart and stepped in between, making sure she could feel every fucking inch of his aching dick pressing against that sweet spot between her legs.

​He buried his hands in her hair, gently tugging on the roots to tip her head back so she couldn’t look away. And Jesus, the need in her eyes, all for him, nearly slayed every last bit of his control. “Are you sure about this?” he asked, because he didn’t want her to wake up in the morning with regrets.

​She was already unbuttoning the shirt she was wearing, revealing the soft, delectable curves of her breasts, her smooth, flat stomach . . . “Absolutely sure,” she breathed huskily. “Just this one night, Kyle. Please.”

​It was that last word that shattered his resolve and had him crushing his lips against hers in a hungry, endless kiss while she desperately shrugged out of his shirt until it pooled around her on the table. His tongue swept over hers, the connection turning hotter, deeper, as he angled her head so he had full access to every part of her mouth. Jesus Christ, he wanted to fucking own her.
