Review – Well Built by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde


I very much enjoyed this latest book by the dynamic writing duo Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde. Kyle, our hero, is definitely hot stuff but he’s even better at romance.  The way he reintroduces himself to Ella pretty much made me want to strangle him, I will not lie. But, he finds a way to redeem himself and it was easier to forgive him once Ella did.  He definitely made me swoon more than once, especially in his quest to win back the love of his life, Ella.  Ella’s world was shattered in the blink of an eye years ago and in re-building her life, there is little room for romance.  What broke up Kyle and Ella was tragic and brought tears to my eyes.  Ella is very independent and the way Kyle stormed back into her life almost made me hate him (I think I said that already but it bears repeating).  Ella shows us how to be strong and brave and face that which hurts us and to move on and accept things as they are.  She definitely takes on too much in regards to the way the past is effecting her future and when she finally stands up and takes what she wants, I cheered for her!  She was truly a wonderful and refreshing heroine.  There was tons of passion and chemistry at play here.  Really, when it comes to sex scenes, these two authors are top notch writers!  They invoke so much emotion mixed with decadent eroticism, it’s hard to find their match.  The storyline was easy to follow along with and kept my attention the entire time.  I loved seeing previous characters and look forward to reading the story of Kyle’s business partner.  You can expect an unforgettable reconciliation and plenty of steamy encounters with some forgiveness and acceptance thrown in for good measure.  Overall, this was another wonderful book by Ms. Wilde and Ms. Phillips and I can’t wait to read the next installment in this series!  4.5 stars.

Date of Publication: July 25, 2017


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.
