Bethany Oman: Another six months and my thesis will be finished, and then I can stop this suffocating charade. My dream is to become a therapist specializing in sexual dysfunction. What better way to write my thesis than in a Playroom filled with sexual deviants? Only problem, I had to become a deviant in order to gain entrance to the Playroom… and then I had to explain my motivations to Augustus Kline, who offered me protection for a very steep toll.
My other dream is standing before me, smirking with anticipation. My original, lifelong-dream, who could easily destroy any hope of my becoming a therapist if I’m not careful.
And Rory Essex makes me feel anything but careful.
Willing to do anything it takes to gain the woman he loves, Rory makes a deal with Beth, which forces him to bargain with the Devil Himself.
Accepting Augustus Kline’s toll into the Playroom, Rory gains the key to making Bethany his Wildly Wedded Wife.
Wildly Wedded Wife is Book #1.5 in the Blended Series. Contemporary Romance with erotic themes. 18+. Warning: content may be too steamy for those with delicate sensibilities.
Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.
Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.
Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.
Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.
Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.

Ms Chilson reminds us in the beginning of this novella that she is more used to writing weighty novels - and I for one am delighted that her books are always an amazingly substantial read. Yet she has quite definitely got the art of writing a short story at her fingertips too. This lovely insight into the world of two side characters of the Blended series is a hit!
This is the hot, steamy, yet incredibly poignant and romantic story of Bethany and Rory. It falls between Good Girl and Widow, yet it can most definitely be read after Widow without any loss of impact at all.
Go on, get your copy and indulge in this wonderful, sexy read.
This was a cute, quick read involving characters that were mentioned in the Blended Series. I LOVED the note from the author in the beginning of this novella...AND her note before Chapter 8 (not that I heeded that note, but it was nice to have it). I have to say that for a novella, this really felt like a complete story based on 1 event. I really did want to know the how/why of Rory & Bethany and this book gave me everyhing I needed to know. Looking forward to the next book!
After re-reading this, I have to add that you can really feel the love that Rory has for Bethany. This short novella is a refreshing love story.

This short novella tells the not so innocent story of how Rory and Bethany finally hooked up. Beth has adored Rory for years and when he finally notices her, she puts him off. Her education is more important that having man, or so she believes.
Rory is tired of waiting and does something Beth never thinks he would do: he gains admittance to The Playroom.
Hot and steamy with a bit of angst thrown in, you have a story worthy of the Blended family.
Aspiring sexual dysfunction Psychologist Bethany Oman has a plan. She knows what she wants, who she wants, and when she wants them, but her lifelong love Rory Essex isn't about to play by Bethany's rules. He knows what he wants and he doesn't want to wait for it. Both of them will go to extreme measures, but who will succeed?
I loved this story! We had a taste of these guys in Good Girl Revamped edition and in Widow of the Blended series, but in Wildly Wedded Wife we really get to see their personalities collide and see how their lives are entwined with the main Blended characters. I was also intrigued by Bethany's delving into Mr. Augutus Kline's psyche. It definitely made me anxious for more. I am even happy to say Erica surprised me with some big moments of this book. She isn't joking when she says proceed with caution. This was a fun, feisty, and sexy romance story that I couldn't get enough of. I even hope to hear more about them in future Blended books.
I'd definitely recommend this book to any Erica Chilson fans and anyone looking for a fun, shocking, and sexy read.
This would be Bethany and Rory's novella, I would recommend meeting these two in the first book, "Good Girl," but this can be read as a standalone. This is a perfect way to feed your addiction to the deviant characters from Good Girl and Widow! We met Bethany in "The playroom." I had no idea there was so much more to her character. Not having much of a background of Rory, I didn't know how this story would go. No Clue! I laughed out loud!! A perfect coupling of two characters we knew nothing about. Don't worry, you also get insight into the mind of Auggie. (We all want to pick his brain) Well it seems Bethany has studied him, I was fascinated.
I reviewed my personal copy of this book for Wicked Reads.
Beth has wanted Rory for as long as she knew what that meant and spent her younger years chasing him. But now that they are older and he is chasing her, she is saying no until she finishes school.
Beth is a member of the Playroom and pays a high price in order to have access to Auggie who is the subject of her thesis. In order to get the woman he loves and access to the Playroom, Rory will have to pay his own price.
I love the way their traditional style romance of childhood friends is woven in with the deviance of life of the participants in the playroom. Beth and Rory are a couple that were meant to be . The story is fun, romantic, sexy and has a good dose of screwed up crazy thrown in too. I loved it.
There's just no other way to say it and I'm quite positive I've said it before, I'm obsessed with Erica Chilson. I LOVE her books like a fat kid loves cake. This is her 1st attempt at a novella and she hit it out of the ball park. WWW dives into the lives of Bethany and Rory. (You get a glimpse of these two within the Blended series.) Oh the things you do for love....YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS WHAT RORY DOES!!!! WARNING: may cause mouth to hang open; have a glass of ice water near by. A wild ride that I didn't want to end. EXTREMELY entertaining and of course SCORCHING hot. LOVED It!!!!!
Loved this short story from the Blended series. I enjoyed getting to see a different perspective of Auggie and seeing the playroom from someones point of view makes this a must read. Don't be afraid of chapter 7, pull your big girl pants up and jump in! Erica's first novella is a huge huge success!!
Can't wait for the next Blended Series installment!
I was lucky enough to win a copy this morning and devoured the book. This novella was definitely packed with a great story and some hot scenes. Rory and Beth are the cutest couple! We get to see the many sides of Rory....sexy and sweet. He's the total package. Did I mention hot sexy scenes? Dang! As always, Ms. Chilson delivers a well written story. Can't wait for her next book to come out.
Buckle up! You’re in for a wild ride. Ms. Chilson has graced us with her 1st novella and it is a beauty. Jumping back into the little freaky town of Fairport we now see just how the Playroom’s pup story came about. I am so happy that this was done and the way it was delivered. I don’t know about the other Bleneded readers but I have always wondered about Pup, however, after reading this I see why it is a novella vs a full length novel. I enjoyed every second of it so much that though I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review, I still went a picked up my own e-copy on Amazon. Between HOT HOT HOT sex scenes and great character develop this one is a winning combo. And just enough to tide us fans over until the next one.

I laughed so much reading this novella. Bethany and Rory's story is definitely a unique one. With the Playroom in effect in this novella and the tolls needed by Auggie to get in makes for a great story.
I am relieved Bethany is not whom I she appears to be and I feel bad for her situation. I guess people are willing to do just about anything to get what they want. Rory is no excuse either. He must do some....interesting things to get the woman he wants.

I loved this novella! you meet Bethany and Rory in "Good Girl" but you don't get to know them that well. Bethany is a very busy woman. She has everything planned out. Rory knows what he wants to and he will do anything for love! do NOT skip over chapter 7! wow wow wow! As always, Erica nailed it! I can't wait for the next one!
Tis the story....of Beth and Rory............ another great read by the lovely erica chilson , in this book we get a look into how things are viewed from another couple in the story, they are no longer just people in the background they now have their own voice. of course it wouldn't be an erica chilson original without some fked up twist and turns but thats what makes it all the better ...yes this review is very vague but i personally dont like leaving spoilers so my advice is to pick up the book, give it a read through and form your own opinion i personally havent read a book by her that i didn't find interesting and get completely submerged into
This was a cute book about two people who get together despite the girl's hangups about a relationship interfering with her research for her degree. This research happens to take place at a BDSM Club and she is researching sexual deviancy. Interesting take on the genre and its fun how the guy gets the girl.
A little story of two of the side characters in this series. I thought it was really cute and very ingenious of Rory to get what he wants. Tricky little bastard;)Not a necessary read for the series, however it does give you a little info that you didn't know before about Auggie.
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.***
Wildly Wedded Wife is book 1.5 in the Blended series and tells the story of Bethany and Rory. It's a quick story, very easy to read, and gives us an insight from Bethany's point of view. We first met Bethany in Good Girl when Willow is in the playroom. This short tale takes place right after the end of the last book, but solely focused on Bethany and Rory. We learned the true reason why Bethany is a member of the playroom, her relationship with Auggie, and what she wants to do with her life. It's A great story, and gives you just enough of a taste to hold you over until the next book
This short novella, told in both Rory and Bethany's POV gives their story, their confessions, as well as more insight into the Master of the Playroom.
Readers be warned, this is intense especially the M/M scenes and yes it may be highly uncomfortable for some if you haven't read the first book and understand the complexities of this town and it's playroom citizens. Although this can be read as a standalone, i advise that it be read in conjunction of book one to help see the role that Beth plays. I can't wait for her to finish her studies and become a therapist. I suspect there are a lot of stories to unfold in this town, and WWW is just another faucet of it.
