Wild series, #1
In this sexy new CALL series spin-off series by New York Times bestseller Emma Hart, enter the intense world of a no strings relationship and experience addiction like you never expected...
The moment I walked in to find Mr. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Oh So British--my mind-blowing one night stand--as my photographer for the shoot that could change it all, I knew life was throwing me a curveball. 
The moment he, Tyler Stone, walked into my best friend’s apartment, I knew that curveball was heading straight for my gut. 
The hit comes in the form of a no-strings proposition… One that gives him utter control over my body. 
If I surrender, that curveball is steadily en-route for a collision course with my heart.

He’s a sex addict. I’m a love addict.
This is temptation.

*Wild Temptation is book one of the Wild series and a full-length novel at approx. 92,000 words.*

After reading Emma Hart's Call series, I could not wait for Tyler Stone to have his own book! And once Wild Temptation was in my hands, I savored every second of Mr. Tall, Dark, Handsome, and Oh-So-British...and all of his dirty, dirty talk!!!

Fellow Call series fans will also appreciate that Dayton and Aaron make plenty of appearances in this spinoff! We get glimpses of how their relationship is going, and I absolutely loooved scenes with Dayton. (Cue Peaches & Herb's "Reunited" because it feels so goood to read about her again! *I* want to marry Dayton...) The scenes with both couples were, of course, GOLDEN. Ultimately, though, this was Tyler and Liv's turn to shine...
"A sex addict and a love addict in a relationship that's not really a relationship at all. We should sell our story to Disney and see if they can create a happily ever after out of this shit."
Tyler Stone and Liv Warren meet by chance, at a club, and they share one night of mind-blowing sex. That's all it was supposed to be. Two strangers. One night. Until reality comes along and kicks that door down! They soon realize they share personal AND professional connections.
"We'll be seeing each other a lot over the next few months, so we may as well get over it now." 
"Get over it? That would imply that it bothers me." 
He takes a lock of my hair between his finger and thumb and lowers his voice. "So would the flush on your cheeks."
Liv is an aspiring model and also works part-time as a bartender. She's sassy and independent, much like her best friend Dayton. On the other hand, I found Liv's voice to be more on the casual side, with a lighter humor in her more unfiltered, comically blunt personality.

I'll also admit that Liv's love addiction threw me for a loop at first. (Confession: I actually Googled it!) But Liv's addiction is a very real thing, and its severity can reach extreme levels. As I learned more about Liv and her past, came to understand her fears, the little lightbulb went off! The author did well explaining this part of Liv, piquing my curiosity before finally revealing the whole picture.
I'm getting addicted to Tyler Stone. Not only my mind, but my body, too. And quite possibly my heart. That's the worst. The heart.
Tyler Stone is a successful photographer and Aaron Stone's cousin. As we first saw in the Call series, he's very close to Aaron and Dayton, and I loved being able to watch those relationships play out even more in this book! It's a funny twist of fate that leads him to spend extra time with his not-so-one-night-stand-anymore, Liv. Before her, he never dated the same woman twice and had a reputation for getting around a lot. But underneath that wealthy playboy rep is the truth...Tyler is a sex addict.
My addiction is to their bodies and the pleasure they ultimately give me. That final release...
Ty can be cocky, stubborn, demanding, and persistent, but he also has this boyish charm, a sweet side, and a protective nature. He's also possessive in the bedroom and a fantastic dirty talker. *wolfish grin* Did I mention that yet?

Although Aaron set a pretty high standard as a book boyfriend (he's just too perfect to resist), Tyler is right there at a close second. Ty made me EEEEP! so hard! I had such crazy fun reading Tyler and Liv's story! Their flirt-fighting was hilarious! Once again, Emma Hart wrote dialogue with so much snap and snark. I did some truly ugly, unabashed cackling. There were squees, and butterflies, and cheek-numbing smiles...
"I'll be the one taking you home to fuck you, not some knob who doesn't deserve you." 
Knob. "I love your British words. They're so adorable." 
"I think 'taking you home to fuck you' is pretty universal."
This couple was impulsive and feisty, and that fire translated into equally intense bedroom chemistry! And chemistry on a wall, on a boat, in other places... ;) I mean, hot damn *crosses legs* wow. They make each other's fantasies and deepest desires come true!
"You are dangerous, Tyler Stone, and I don't do danger." 
"I think you do. I think you crave danger and the risk that goes with it. It's in your eyes, babe. You're wild."
They were so funny and sexy together, but I also loved watching "no strings sex" develop into something more. The bigger question became: are they just enabling each other's addictions or could this be real love? Liv keeps fighting her feelings and is so afraid of falling, but it only makes Tyler pull her closer and try to convince her to trust him. A few scenes hit me square in the swoon-nerves! (Hint: Paris, we meet again. *actual scream-cries*)
"You wanted me to smile. Here it is." I run my fingers through to the end of his hair and allow my lips to spread and curve the way they want to.  
He places his hand on the camera, but I cover it with my own. "No," I whisper. "This smile is for you. Just you."
Tyler and Liv made me laugh, blush, melt...I loved the crazy-yet-satisfying ride they took me on! And just when I was wondering how Emma was going to leave the door open for book two, a truth is revealed that made my eyebrows shoot up and all I could say was, "Oooh, I see...Well, then..."
 
I am beyond ready for another round of Tyler and Liv! Fantastic characters. Scorching hot romance. This book was wickedly sexy and had no trouble living up to its title--wild!

EXCERPT

I stalk from the bathroom into my room and put on some clean panties. He follows me in, and
when I turn, he’s pulling his clothes off.
 
“Uh, what are you doing?”
 
“We’re gonna do some of that talking shit, and we’re gonna cuddle while we do it.”
 
I fold my arms across my chest. “I don’t cuddle.”
 
“You didn’t sleep with a guy more than once when you met me, so shut up and get in your bed. Lose the T-shirt.”
 
I stare him down. “I. Don’t. Cuddle.”
 
“I. Don’t. Care,” he retorts. He grabs my shirt and pulls me toward him. His fingers curl around
the hem and he meets my eyes. “You can take it off or I can rip it off. I don’t care, but it’s coming
off.”
 
I raise my arms and he pulls the material over my head and drops it on the floor. “The only thing you should ever threaten to rip is my panties.”
 
“I’ll keep that in mind.” He smirks. “Now get into bed. If I’m cuddling you, you can’t pull your running-away shit when the conversation gets tough.”
 
I take a deep breath, my chest tightening. He walks to my bed and gets in without a second thought. The covers pool at his waist, giving me a full view of his toned body, and I’m tempted to go over there—if only to run my fingers across his stomach.
 
“Don’t make me get you,” he warns, pulling the covers aside.
 
I sigh and get into bed next to him. As sad as it is, it’s true. I don’t cuddle. I haven’t really hugged anyone than Dayton or my parents in years.
 
Tyler slides me across the bed and lays us both down. “Roll over.”
 
I roll to face him, my head falling on his shoulder. His arms go around me, his cheek resting atop my head, his body warm against mine. The hilarity of this situation is how tender our position is when, ten minutes ago, we were fucking so roughly.
 
“There. It’s not so bad, hmm?”
 
I jab his side. “It’s awful,” I lie. Truth: his arms around me make me feel more secure than I have in a long time. Maybe it’s the subtle strength in his softly defined muscles, or maybe it’s the tightness he holds me with.
 
“Why was your day so bad?” I ask, resting my hand on his stomach.
 
“Two big shoots—one this morning and another in the afternoon. Both with self-righteous, stuck-up bitches who think the world and its mother owes them everything. It was a level of Hell Dante missed.”
 
“Fun. And I take offense at you calling other women bitches. That’s my name.”
 
He laughs loudly, his body shaking, making me smile. “Oh, Liv. You’re not just a bitch. You’re my bitch. My flighty, irritating bitch.”
 
“It’s good to know that you have such a high opinion of me.”
 
“Cuddle me properly and I’ll switch out the irritating.”
 
With a sigh, I lie my arm over his stomach. Instinctively, I snuggle in closer. His arms tighten around me a little more.
 
“There,” I whisper. “Happy?”
 
“Yes.” He kisses the top of my head. “My beautiful, flighty bitch.”

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
