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 continue their amazing Book Boyfriend series with Well Built, and this might be my favorite book of the three. (But, please, don’t make me actually choose.) This is a fun, heartfelt, and steamy, second-chance romance with a swoon-worthy hero and a heroine I’d love to call “friend”.
Kyle and Ella were high school sweethearts and in love when a complicated tragedy tore them apart. After their relationship abruptly ended, he left their small town of Woodmont, Illinois, to make it big in Chicago while she stayed and took over her father’s grocery store. They haven’t talked for 10 years when Kyle suddenly rolls back into Woodmont and out-bids Ella on a building she had her heart set on buying.
Kyle knew that he might hurt Ella if he bought the property, but he has reasons why he needed that particular building to risk it. He feels guilty when he realizes how devastated she is to lose the sale, and he grapples with how to make it better and also how to reconnect with her.
The feelings of their youth are reignited, and they both gravitate towards each other, even considering their complicated past. Kyle realizes he’s still in love with Ella, and he and Ella begin the slow and sweet process of reconciliation. Their love story has all the feels and will have the ready grinning from ear to ear. Phillips and Wilde prove, again, that they are a great team.
