Title: Well Built
Series: Book Boyfriend #3
Authors: Carly Phillips | Erika Wilde
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 25 July 2017
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.
The third standalone book in the Book Boyfriend series is a second chance romance by writing duo Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde.
Kyle Coleman and Ella Fisher were young teenage lovers and sweethearts but then a family drama separated them abruptly and their relationship was no more. Fast forward ten years and Kyle having left for the big city is back in their hometown. He comes face to face with the woman who has always held his heart, but what he is about to do could make her hate him even more than she did when he last saw her. Ella on the other hand has always stayed close to home and looked after her father for the past decade. To say she is shocked seeing Kyle back in town is an understatement but then when she finds out why he is back it gives her an almost bigger shock.
This was a quick second chance romance read and was enjoyable even if it is one of the most overused tropes in the romance genre (but I do like second chance it has to be said!). However the characters were likable (although Ella did overplay the martyr syndrome which got a bit irksome after a while) and easy to fall into their story. Kyle was instantly likeable and remained throughout. I loved the banter he had with his friends who I assume had been featured in the other books in the series.
Overall this book kept me entertained and I would rate this as a 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
