A complete stand-alone story, TALL, DARK & IRRESISTIBLE is a fun, flirty swoon-worthy romance!

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 overly-protective 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?

    Tall, Dark and Irresistible has a take on the friends to lovers trope, and it was so very well done. While Leo and Peyton haven't really seen each other since they were chemistry lab partners in college, they were friends then and though there was an attraction between them, Leo had a girlfriend, so neither of them would have ever acted upon it. Let me just say I totally fell in love with this book from page one. I loved that while Leo had no reason whatsoever for helping Peyton out, he stepped up and gave it his all. I absolutely loved Leo and Peyton as a couple. They might have started out pretending, but I could quickly tell they have real feelings for one another. Add in their absolutely amazing and smoking hot chemistry, and I got all the happy feels from them together. Seriously the more time they spent together, the more I wanted the fake relationship to become a real one. Honestly the only part I didn't love was Peyton feeling like she had to lie to her parents about being in a relationship. I totally understood once we met them, but I also really wanted her to act more like the adult she wanted to be treated like and be honest with them from the beginning. I have to say I loved that Peyton's dad seemed to get why she faked a relationship and really tried to step back one the truth came out. I also loved he was the one to help her mom see the light as well. I love that Leo and his brothers are so very close, and they each had no trouble kicking him in the butt when needed to help him realize how important Peyton really as to him. I've loved seeing each of the first two Stone brothers find the loves of their lives so far. Erika Wilde once again delivered a sexy romance that was just what I wanted to read. I highly recommend Tall, Dark and Irresistible to readers who love contemporary romances. Rating: 5 Stars (A) Review copy provided by publisher

    ARC for honest review with no compensation This is book 2 of the Tall, Dark and Sexy series by Erika Wilde and like always there's lots of heat ad off the charts chemistry!! Peyton a successful designer living her dream in New York loses her job, has a fake boyfriend (who she made up so her parents wouldn't worry), none other than Leo Stone her swoon worthy chemistry partner from college. Now she's coming back home to California for her cousin's wedding but how to explain the fake boyfriend...now the fun begins. Leo Stone, owner of a successful business call Prestige Car Services get a request for personal pickup and a proposition from a Peyton Bishop. Little does he know that this is his chemistry partner from college. Blast from the past, little white lies, propositions, chemistry, laughter, sexy times are just the beginning of a "fake" relationship between to people who are just looking to get through a week together . Little do they know that this week together will changes their lives and maybe give them the HEA they are both longing for....
  • Love a good second chance story

    By Christine Miller28
    I was really looking forward to Leo Stone's story when we met him in the first Tall, Dark and Sexy book. Leo and Peyton get a second chance at love in this book. They knew each other in college and secretly liked each other, but Leo had a serious girlfriend, so nothing ever happened. Peyton finds herself in a situation when she has to go to a family wedding and needs to bring her boyfriend Leo with her. The only thing is....they aren't dating and haven't spoke in years! I did chuckle as Peyton told Leo her tale. These two had a lot of chemistry and it was hard not to be swept up in their fake romance that ended up being a reality. These two were meant for one another and the story was a good one. I really enjoyed this story.
