Playing His Way - Blog Tour with Review


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?"

Review by Barbara

Love this book/storyline. The author has done a great job of writing characters the reader can simply fall in love with and relate too. Take Stephanie, she got a great career in decorating and is moving up with high class clients. Then we have Mac. He’s a sexy, dominate man that is the new owner of the Player’s Club; which of course needs a facelift. But Mac can’t get Stephanie to do the job because he a one night stand kind of guy and he knows where his attraction to her would lead - so it’s a definite no go. So he talks a friends wife (who works for Stephanie) to do the job. But when it comes time to meet and discuss plans, guess who shows up…. Yep, Stephanie. And a little FYI, Mac’s not the only one that has been feeling the pull between them since they met months ago. 

From here the story takes off and the sparks and wildness take on a life of their own. Great Read that I highly recommend. It’s fun, flirty and oh so sexy. I Just Loved it!!!

Outcast Release Blitz with Giveaway and Review

A Good Guys Novel
Author: Jamie Schlosser
Genre: New Adult/College Romance
Release Date: March 15, 2018


My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin—with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love.
Because if it wasn’t for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even know I exist.
Then I find his sketchbook.
And it changes everything.

There are two certainties in my life: I’ve been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was fourteen, and I can’t have her.
I’ve spent years settling for a two-dimensional fantasy world, capturing her beauty with a pencil and paper. She’s kind, smart, gorgeous…
And she belongs to someone else.
Or so I thought.
An interesting turn of events makes me realize things aren’t always how they appear on the outside, and now I’ve got my chance to be the man she deserves.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called a loser. The cripple. An outcast.
But maybe—just maybe—this time the good guy won’t finish last.

Four Years Ago

In all my fourteen years, she was the most beautiful girl I’d ever seen.
She was a new student, and from the teacher’s brief announcement I learned she was originally from Cleveland. When Mr. Marks asked her to stand in front of the class and introduce herself, her hands anxiously twisted together as she quietly let out the name I’d say in my head thousands of times over the next several years.
Kayla Reynolds.
She was a tiny thing in a gray T-shirt, skinny jeans, and Chucks. Skin the color of coffee with a healthy dose of cream, light green eyes, full lips, and her hair was red. Not fiery-red—a deep auburn that reminded me of my favorite kind of sunset.
The color of the wild ringlets seemed out of place with her caramel skin, and it was like all her features had been put together with a bunch of mismatched pieces.
The unique combination was stunning.
I couldn’t stop staring.
Hushed whispers filled the classroom. I wasn’t the only one studying the new girl. Heyworth, Ohio wasn’t the most diverse town, and Kayla’s distinct characteristics made her stand out like a candle in the dark.
Awkwardly shifting from one foot to the other, she sent a pleading look to our teacher.
“You can take a seat,” he told her, and she shuffled to the empty desk in the front row, just diagonal from me.
Obviously uncomfortable, she quickly glanced around before looking down at her clasped hands.
I felt bad for her.
It was hard enough coming to a new town, but freshman year started two weeks ago. Everyone had already gotten time to get acquainted and, truth be told, most of us had been in the same grade since kindergarten.
And now here she was, unfamiliar and different.
Painfully pretty.
The kind of pretty that made hearts hurt with longing or jealousy. Longing for those who wanted to be with her, and jealousy for the ones who wanted to be her. Both could bring out a darkness we all had somewhere deep inside.
I was in the former category but instead of letting it bring me down, I felt my heart lift a little. Usually school was hell for me, but the thought of seeing her every day made it a little more bearable.
The buzz around us continued as our peers blatantly discussed the most interesting thing to happen in our grade for a long time. I didn’t hear all of what they said, but caught the words “Carrot Top” and “Chia Pet.”
Why did people have to be such dicks? I should’ve known it wouldn’t take long for them to pounce.
Suddenly, I wanted to tell everyone to stop gawking and mind their own fucking business.
Anne’s blond hair almost smacked me in the face as she whipped her head toward the new girl.
“So, what are you?” Leaning to the right, she giggled as she pulled at a strand of Kayla’s hair. “Like, are you Hispanic or something?”
I narrowed my eyes at the rude girl in front of me.
“Um, I don’t know,” Kayla responded, squirming away from the hand petting her head. “I was adopted.”
“I heard she has two dads,” Abby, Anne’s best friend, whispered loudly from somewhere behind me. “Gay dads.”
Snickering broke out among the class. Kayla’s delicate hands balled into fists until her knuckles turned white.
Fury ignited in my chest.
I’d never stood up for anyone before, not even myself. I wasn’t witty in the heat of the moment. I always thought of the best comebacks hours after it would’ve been useful. I didn’t know the first thing about defending someone.
But I couldn’t do nothing.
Just as I started to stand—with zero plan in place—a heavy hand landed on my left thigh and my leg buckled. I dropped back in my seat with a grunt as pain shot through my knee.
“What do you think you’re doing, Slug?” AJ sneered.
I bristled at the awful nickname. Not slug as in slugger, a baseball champ. Slug like the fat, slimy, slow-moving lumps that came out after too much rain.
“Uh—uh—uh,” he mocked with a laugh. Then his tone turned deceptively kind as his hand left my throbbing leg. “Hey, you know what you should do?”
Instead of a response, I gave him a skeptical glare.
There was one word for AJ Nelson: bully. Okay, there were a lot of words for him, but none of them were nice.
“Blush,” he barked out the command, and my cheeks flared against my own will. I knew if I looked in the mirror, I’d see a bright red flush all over my face.
The worst part about being made fun of wasn’t the hit to my self-esteem. It wasn’t feeling unloved or unpopular. It wasn’t even knowing so many of my peers stood by and watched it happen, silent and unwilling to intervene.
It was the humiliation of being put in my place. The degradation of being constantly reminded that my body betrayed me. That I wasn’t in control; they were. And people like AJ took every opportunity to let me know it.
Embarrassed, I dipped my head so no one would see, but it was too late. The new girl had rotated in her seat, looking over her shoulder at me with so much empathy, it only made the heat in my face worse.
She offered a timid, yet brave smile. “Hey, what’s your name?”
“You can call him Slug,” AJ supplied, and she gave him a fierce scowl.
Before I could form a response, a booming voice came from the back of the classroom.
“Yo, Kayla. Come sit next to me.”
I turned to see Gavin, the star linebacker for our football team. Dude was a beast. Freshmen never got put on the varsity team, but the coach had made an exception for the 6’4”, 210-pound giant. He was a nice guy, though. Soft-spoken and polite. He mostly kept to himself, so it was unusual for him to make such an outburst.
Mr. Marks cleared his throat. “That’s not Kayla’s assigned seat, Gavin.”
He gave the teacher a hard stare. “It is now.”
Kayla’s wide eyes bounced back and forth between the two until Mr. Marks waved his hand in permission.
After gathering her books, she trudged to the back row. Gavin gave a gentlemanly bow before pulling out her seat. The frown on her face was replaced with a grin, and a bolt of jealousy shot through me because I couldn’t be the one to protect her.
Even if AJ hadn’t been in my way, I would’ve fumbled over my words. I wasn’t intimidating. I wasn’t commanding.
I was Ezra Johnson, the cripple.
And that was why a girl like Kayla Reynolds would never be interested in a guy like me.
Her gaze briefly met mine before Gavin snagged her attention away. Tipping his head toward her, he whispered something I couldn’t hear, and she giggled.
“Guess we know who’s getting some from the new girl,” AJ remarked crudely, earning a few laughs.
And there was nothing I could do about it. If I told him to shut up, he’d just remind me how powerless I was.
My chest burned with anger as I opened my brand-new sketchbook to the first page and started to draw.
As Mr. Marks droned on about American history, my pencil moved over the paper. I didn’t need to look at my subject to get the details right; the image of her was etched into my mind.
Her heart-shaped face. The slight upturn of her nose. Plump lips. Corkscrew curls.
After I was satisfied with the rough outline of her beautiful features, I wrote the first of many letters she’d never see.

Dear Kayla,
Today is the best and worst day of my life. The best, because I found out love at first sight really does exist. The worst, because I had to watch someone else be your hero.

Review by Barbara

I have followed this series since its start. The author simply amazes me more with each addition. Her writing style is one I truly love. Her storylines always tell a message that hit you in the heartstrings. The characters in her stories will melt you to a puddle of goo; even during the rough times. Outcast is no except to these things. 

In Outcast her storyline hits the mark with today’s world. Ezra is picked on, tease, bullied (however you wish to term it) because of his injured leg, but trust me he is no pushover. His injury does not define him. Kayla is the only bright spot in his days. Kayla isn’t one of the most popular in school but Ezra just knows she is still out of his league. This is a heartwarming emotional journey that will have you smiling, tearing up and hoping for a HEA. 2 Thumbs up for a tender romantic read that you just don’t want to miss out on. It’s part of the wonderful Good Guys series. You don’t have to read the other books to follow along with Ezra’s story but I highly recommend them all. Ms. Schlosser's way with word and tender storylines make for warm and cozy 5 star reads.

Review by Kathy

Wanna take a slow ride that will slowly accelerate and bring your emotions through several twists and turns, giggles and laugh out loud moments, tragedy and heartbreak??? Well this is the book that will do just that. Not your normal MC, this book doesn't have the rough and tough brothers who go around knocking heads, beating the bad(der) guys, no this is a good guy MC and the storyline is amazing. 

The characters are wonderfully written and have an instant love, but don't think it ends there..oh no...just wait and see what happens. I loved Deck and Charlie, but I really loved Shiloh, the little imp! She will have your sides aching from laughter!

This is a wonderful read and I hope you all give it a chance. I highly recommend it. 

Deck and Charlie are all about insta love, mixed in with a bit of tragedy and heartbreak. Unlike most insta love books they don’t end the second the hero and heroine declare their love. Instead the plot thickens and Leah keeps the story flowing with ease. 

I have no doubt there will be more books as the ending leaves questions unanswered that I know will be revealed in her other books. 

Keep your eyes peeled these bad boys all need someone to love!

Review by Barbara

OMG WHAT A BOOK.... TOTALLY LOVED IT..  This book has it all, laughs, insta love, tough bikers with a tender side (especially for one potty mouth preschooler), and lots emotion. The author has done an amazing job of taking the reader on a journey they won't forget anytime soon. The storyline and the characters fit just perfectly together.  I love that this is a biker book but not your everyday one. While the guys are as tough as they come, all of them being former soldiers, they aren't about breaking the law but more about mending themselves and others. All of these former soldiers suffer from some sort of PTSD and their brotherhood keeps them going. (Don't get me wrong, they can throw down when it's needed). 

This is Deck and Charlie's story. These two fall hard from the moment they say hello. The journey the author takes you on with these two will melt your insides. Both have been through a lot of heartache and troubles but just maybe they have found something that they can hold on to for once. Or can they? I won't spoil that and say more but trust me their story is a must read. 

One thing I will say is Shiloh steals the show, at least she did for me. OMG what a perfect little character she is.... remember the mention above about a potty mouth preschooler - well meet Shiloh. She is all pink, girly (sugar and spice) except for her black shitkickers and her biker vocabulary. But then if you were raised from the day you were born by 10 alpha tough bikers that all are former soldiers, you'd probably grow up talking the same way. Trust me this little girl is 100 percent a showstopper and she had the entire club and her dance teacher (Charlie) wrapped around her little fingers. 

I can't recommend this wonderful book enough. LORDY if I could give it more that 5 stars I would in a heartbeat. 2 thumbs up for a great book 1 to the series and I look forward to reading about the rest of the gang, because trust me I just know this series is going to be outstanding. 

Meet the Author

I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn't happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don't do angst, in fact it drives me crazy. 

I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.
I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.
I love Pina Colada's and getting caught in the rain..... there's that weird humor.
