BOOK REVIEW: Well Built by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde


Title: Well Built
Author: Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde
Publication: July 25th 2017
Pages: unknown

When it comes to women, sexy, well-built Kyle Coleman has always been a lover, not a fighter. His one exception? The tempting, beautiful Ella Fisher. Her family and his share a tempestuous past, which make the two of them as a couple off-limits—despite the fact that she inspires some of his dirtiest fantasies. He’s kept his hands off of her for years . . . until the lines between family loyalty and lust become irrevocably blurred one fateful evening and changes everything between them.

I was provided an advanced reader’s copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Book number 3 in the Book Boyfriend series by Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde follows the troupe of second chance love involving Ella Fisher and Kyle Coleman. The story is similar to many that you have read before this one. High school romance gone wrong but with a dark twist that keeps the readers interested and making the story more complex than we imagined it could be.

Ella Fisher…What can I tell you about Ella Fisher except for that she’s a mary jane with nothing much going for her. She’s loyal to her family, loves everyone in the small town, and the small town loves her back. I don’t dislike Ella at all. Don’t get me wrong. She just lacks character in ways and surprises me towards the end when she becomes this sexual vixen that takes on Kyle’s stamina in bed. 😉 Ella also grows as a character as well, standing up to her oppressive father.

And what I can tell you about Kyle except he’s literally the perfect book boyfriend. He’s considerate, compassionate, and loving towards everyone around him. He’s also a mama’s boy which makes me a Kyle fan girl officially.

When we talk about the plot, it’s average. A tale about Ella and Kyle finding their way back to each other because of an auction for a rundown building that both want to get their hands on. Ella wants it to build a store to sell local merchants items and Kyle wants to have it for his mother so that she can finally create a catering / decorating / party planning business.

Their attraction to each other? I’ll say its a medium burn sizzle. Nothing to cause three degree burns but something enough to make you go “Hot!” Instead of creating a fast romance, Carly and Erika also opted for a time lapse so that readers can understand that Ella and Kyle’s romance didn’t just go from horrible to heaven in a span of three days. It makes sense for time to past so that they can gain trust in each other again.

The writing? Well, let’s just say it’s traditional style writing. Lots of explanations. Little dialogue.

My recommendation:

I never read the whole series yet but this one was enough to peak my interest into Carly and Erika’s works.
