Ever since that horrific night, I’d shut men completely out of my life.
I’d gone from the spunky, fun, Alex DeMarco to a broken woman terrified of
intimacy. Easing me back into dating, my best friend sets me up with kickboxing
lessons from my charming and perfectly sculpted instructor—Carter
Carter’s goal is to break through my emotional barrier and mold my
heart just like he molds my body, but trusting men is a battle I’m not ready
for. What’s worse is my ex fiancé, Todd Livingston—the man who tore my heart in
two—wants me back, and as much as I’d like to deny it, the feelings are still
Both men want what I can’t give—my body and my love—and neither are
willing to give up the fight. But only one of them can unbreak this heart of
"Every single page has you addicted and craving
more." ~ Goodreads Reviewer

TALL, DARK & IRRESISTIBLE, an all-new fun, flirty, standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Erika Wilde is available NOW!
When it comes to love and happily ever after, Leo Stone is a disbeliever. Having been left at the altar by the one woman he thought he'd spend the rest of his life with, he's vowed to keep his heart to himself and enjoy the one thing he knows won't affect his emotions . . . hot, dirty sex. Except, what's a guy to do when a gorgeous woman asks him to be her stand-in boyfriend for two weeks—with benefits? Sign him up, please!
A drunken night one year ago, Peyton Bishop used Leo Stone's name and photograph to convince her overprotective parents that she was safe living in New York City—in part thanks to a boyfriend she adored. Except Leo, the hot guy she's had a secret crush on since college, has no idea he's been cast in the role of her lover. With her cousin's wedding coming up, and her parent's expecting to meet this mysterious boyfriend, Peyton is forced to come clean and ask Leo a huge favor.
Leo agrees to be her stand-in boyfriend, but what's a pretend couple to do when their fake feelings start to become oh-so-real?
The two of them reached Leo's vehicle, and the doors unlocked with a chirp as he pressed the key fob in his free hand. But instead of opening the passenger side for Peyton, he instead turned her around to face him . . . trapping her between the unyielding metal surface of the car behind her and the tall, muscular man standing less than two feet away. He casually placed a hand on the door beside her and leaned a few inches closer. "Before we go, I have one more question for you," he said, his tone serious. She inhaled the warm, masculine scent of his cologne mingling with leather from his jacket and tried not to let that intoxicating fragrance distract her. "Okay." She figured it couldn't get any worse than everything she'd already admitted. "So, usually, when a person gets propositioned, they get something out of the deal," he said, his heavy-lidded gaze dropping to her mouth. "You'd be getting a devoted boyfriend out of the arrangement. What would I get?" She didn't miss the suggestion in his eyes or the playful curve of his smile. "What do you want?" she asked, unable to hide the breathless quality of her voice. "Well, for starters, how about a show of good faith, like a kiss?" His free hand came up and gently cupped the side of her face, while his thumb skimmed along her damp bottom lip. "I think it's important to know what I might be getting myself into and if we're compatible enough to pull off this whole pretend boyfriend/girlfriend thing. I mean, what if we kiss and we realize that there's just no spark there? Then this whole farce is doomed for failure." He was teasing her. She could see the mischievous glimmer in his eyes, and it provoked a smile from her, even as her breathing escalated with every second that passed with the temptation of finally having Leo's lips pressed against hers dangling like a carrot in front of her. "Then kiss me so we can find out," she whispered. His thumb dipped down beneath her chin to tip her head back as he lowered his mouth to hers. His lips were surprisingly soft as they found hers for the first time, his teeth gentle as they nibbled at her bottom lip. She couldn't hold back the needy moan that escaped her throat, or the way her hands instinctively lifted and settled against his solid chest even as he pressed closer to her, his hard thighs and hips pinning her against the car. "Jesus," he breathed against her lips in shock, clearly feeling the heat between them that was a spark on the verge of becoming an undeniable blaze. Sliding both of his hands into her hair, he held her head steady as he came back for another taste, and this time, there wasn't an ounce of gentleness in the way he swept his tongue inside and plundered her mouth—boldly, deeply, greedily. She made a wild, desperate sound as she fisted her hands in his cotton T-shirt and matched him kiss for kiss, turning that blaze into an inferno that was so hot it threatened to singe them both. And in the moment, neither one of them seemed to care. She felt the unmistakable ridge of his erection nudging against her belly, and a new hunger spiraled tighter inside her. Desire made her knees weak, her nipples excruciatingly hard, and her panties wet. Everything about Leo Stone was sensation overload to every part of her body, and if there was any worry in either of their minds about pulling off a believable attraction, this kiss eliminated any and all concerns. By the time Leo finally lifted his mouth from hers, they were both breathing hard from all the heightened sexual tension between them. His dark eyes glittered with lust as he gazed down at her, looking as dazed as she felt. Somehow, someway, she found her voice. "Was that convincing enough for you?" she asked huskily. His low, sexy chuckle made her shiver. "Oh, yeah . . . it was definitely a good start."
