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.

Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde has done it again! WELL BUILT was a FANTASTIC addition to their AMAZING Book Boyfriend Series! Kyle Coleman and Ella Fisher are two characters that will stay very close to your heart! These two were like a breath of fresh air for me and I LOVED every single second of their love story! A second chance love story that will make your toes curl and your heart melt, WELL BUILT is one romance you DO NOT want to pass up!

“Ella…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.”

WELL BUILT had EVERYTHING you could ever want in a beautiful and entertaining romance. It has heart. It has hilarity. It has beauty and romance pouring off of every single page. Two people with a very complicated history are reunited when our sexy hero, Kyle, has to come to his hometown to make a bid on something that both Kyle and Ella want. When Kyle wins the bid, animosity comes to the forefront for Ms. Ella Fisher, and she will fight for what she wants. She just didn’t know that it would be for something more with the boy that she loved all those years ago. This is a romance full of family drama, reignited flames, and second chances. It’s sweet. It’s sexy. It’s a bit angsty, but it has a humor factor that lightens the mood where appropriate. Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde always gives their readers a seamless love story full of ups and downs, happiness and heart, love and heartbreak. 

I’m so excited when Carly and Erika write together. They always turn out something so FANTASTIC, and up next is Connor’s book (Rock Solid, 11/14/17) which I’m SUPER excited about! All you have to do is read that synopsis (or look at the book cover) and you will be on board, for sure!

   Dan Briggs, the auctioneer in charge of today’s sale, arrived and took his place in front of the small crowd.  Less than a minute later, Kyle caught sight of Ella walking out of the connecting market, a bright, self-assured smile on her face and a sassy pep to her step, as if this piece of property was already hers and this auction was just a formality. His gut clenched at what he was about to do to her, but he couldn’t let himself be deterred by an emotion such as guilt. 

     Without looking at who was gathered to watch the sale, she walked up to Dan and spoke to him for a few moments, even laughing at something he said, though Kyle couldn’t hear their conversation.  But he did have a clear view of Ella, and he took advantage of the opportunity to really study her without her guard being up, as he knew it would be as soon as he topped her first bid. 

     It had been years since the last time he’d seen her.  In high school, she’d been a pretty girl, with a lithe body that had tempted him to indulge in all sorts of sin. She’d had a sweet innocence about her that had effortlessly drawn him in.  She was still slender with graceful long legs, but her curves were more pronounced and womanly.  Her fitted jeans emphasized the alluring dip of her waist along with the tight shape of her spectacular ass.  She was wearing a light blue T-shirt with Fisher’s Grocery printed across her chest, and it didn’t escape Kyle’s notice that the breasts that had once been small swells of flesh were now firm and full and would overflow in his big hands in the best possible way. 

     Her delicate features had matured, but she still possessed that natural beauty that didn’t require any cosmetics or enhancements.  Judging by the loose braid hanging halfway down her back, she’d let her once-shoulder-length style grow quite a few inches, and he found himself wondering how those chestnut strands would look completely unconfined, and if her hair was still as soft and silky as he remembered. 

     Something in his belly tightened, and he recognized it as attraction and desire, even after all this time.  If Ella were anyone else, or a woman he’d seen at a bar in the city, he would have already been working his way toward her to introduce himself and to see if the chemistry was reciprocated.  And from there, he’d buy her a drink, they’d talk a bit, and he’d get a feel for if she was up for a mutual night of pleasure. 

     Kyle killed that line of thinking.  As much as Ella still tempted him, he was pretty certain that she’d knee him in the balls before she’d ever date him again.  Especially after she learned he was going to be her new business neighbor.
