I absolutely love The Players Club series from Erika Wilde. When I saw Mac was finally going to get his story and he was being paired with Stephanie, I am pretty sure Ms. Wilde could hear me squealing for joy from the other side of the country. Not only was I over the moon to read this story, but I have to say that Playing His Way is my absolute favorite book in the series. I honestly don't think I even knew Mac's real first name was Brent until this book. I'm not saying it wasn't mentioned before, but he was always just Mac to me. However, once he started spending time with Stephanie, I could totally see his as Brent. He was still a totally in control in every way man, but he also had a sense of contentment that had never been there before. I knew it would take a special woman to make Mac risk his heart again, and Stephanie Randall was just the woman for the job. Stephanie is a strong woman who runs her own business and her business is the top priority in her life. Stephanie hasn't made finding a relationship a priority and is ready to break her dry spell and Mac is who she wants. I loved that Mac really did try and fight his attraction to Stephanie, knowing he wasn't looking for a relationship. OMG I'm so glad Mac gave into his attraction to Stephanie. This is when he started to become Brent for me. I absolutely loved Brent and Stephanie together. They were so freaking smoking hot together and I fell for them as a couple from the first moment they were together. There are absolutely moments in Playing His Way where Mac makes horrible decisions based upon his past where Stephanie is concerned. I have to admit I wanted to Gibbs smack him a couple of times and gave Stephanie all sorts of props for not doing so. Him thinking he knew what she wanted because he was older and thought she would be missing out on a choice was his biggest mistake...even bigger than thinking they could keep their relationship physical only. I loved that talking to Dean helped him see what a complete and total ass he was being. I do love when a hero realizes he has been in the wrong and knows he has to go big to make everything right. Stephanie was absolutely the perfect woman for Brent MacMillian and I loved how they each proved their feelings for one another. Playing His Way was a story I couldn't put down once I started reading it. I loved this story with every fiber of my being and it gave me all the feels as I read it. It was a great addition to The Players Club series, but could absolutely be read as a stand-alone story with no problem. Ms. Wilde once again gave me a super sexy emotional romance and I can't wait to read what she writes next. Rating: 5 stars (A) Review copy provided by publisher

What a hot, steamy and wonderful romance story Erika Wilde wrote with Playing His Way, book four in the Players Club Series. As the new owner of The Players Club, Mac is a single Dominant male and wants to update the Fantasy Rooms at the club. Stephanie, the owner of Fantasy Bedrooms and Interior Design contacts him about updating the club. Mac is attracted to Stephanie but he thinks she’s too innocent for him and wouldn’t be able to enjoy what he liked because she was so independent and sure of herself. Let’s just say that that didn’t work for Stephanie and she was willing to try anything. Imagine his surprise when he realizes she is not as innocent as he thought she was. You can feel the chemistry between Brent and Stephanie as she creates the ultimate fantasy rooms for the club, while bringing some fantasies to life for the two of them. Mac and Stephanie was one HOT couple. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down. Ms. Wilde wrote a wonderful story, with desire, and steamy, hot sex. She drew me in and did not let go until I turned the last page. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book

Brent "Mac" MacMillan is the new owner of The Players Club. Mac enjoys his time in the club leaning more towards the darker side. Mac comes from old money and even married young to appease his parents but when a certain issue arises, Mac ends up getting divorced and cut off from his family. Determined to make it on his own, Mac is now beyond wealthy and living his life on his own terms. For the past year Stephanie Randall has been taunting him. She is friends with his partner's wife and she has made it known she is interesting in him. Too bad she's too "good" for his taste. When Mac wants to create fantasy rooms within his club, he ends up getting Steph to work on the task. Big mistake. Steph decides she has had enough waiting for Mac and takes things into her own hands and that is when the fun begins. Steph may be a "good" girl but she has an interest in learning how to be "bad" and she wants to take that walk on the wild side with Mac. These two together were awesome! Such great chemistry. Mac is a true dominate when it comes to sex. The fun part was Steph is so strong willed with such a great sassy mouth that she gave Mac a run for his money. It was fun watching these two let down their barriers and be their true selves with each other. This was another great addition to this series. I'm hoping there will be another book....maybe Rick's story!
