Tall, Dark and Tempting was absolutely my favorite book in this series! I also am super excited for the upcoming spin-off series from Erika Wilde and Carly Phillips. Two of my favorite authors writing another series of books together puts me in my happy place! I highly recommend this book to all readers who love contemporary romances!

Erika Wilde is an author who has caught my attention on a number of occasions, yet I’ve only read one of her books when she’s writing with Carly Phillips. Rock Solid, the Erika Wilde and Carly Phillips book I have read, was really enjoyable and I’ve been meaning to read more of both authors since, yet Tall, Dark and Tempting was the first chance I got to dive into more of either.

Although Tall, Dark and Tempting is the third book in a series, it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. We got

The third Stone brother has finally fallen! Dylan is convinced he is not meant for love, real love, the kind where you have one person for the rest of your life to come home to. His best friend since forever, literally since toddlers, Serena, that is all she wants...someone to love and to love her and babies. She is on a mission to find that someone but not having any luck and after every disaster ends up on Dylan's couch with Ben & Jerry's ice cream and watching the Hallmark channel love mo ...more

You know what? I am not happy with the story. Dylan needed to get his head out of his arse before the 50% so he and Serena could have some parts where they are in a happy relationship. Her dating three different men for more than once in a 133-page long book is not my thing. There is no space for Dylan and I don't think that's her fault. The dude kept pushing and pushing her away so much he managed to get on my strongly dislike list for a while. I have been waiting for this story, for what seems ...more

Super amazing book,just like the previous two.To be honest I didn't expect anything different from this author.

Dylan and Serena are best friends ever since they were kids.But Serena has been in love with Dylan for her entire life and he just never returned her feeling,or so she thinks.
This book was crazily sweet,cheesy and over the top romantic.
Serena is all about romance and "finding prince charming" so that wasn't surprise.And Dylan is all about logic.He is so different then her and yet they f

We finally get to read Dylan and Serena's story. I haven't read many "friends to lovers" stories but I really loved this one. Dylan's love for Serena is very obvious and equally, her love for him. Instead of telling each other this, they tip toe around it, until one night changes everything between them. At this point, I really wanted to reach through the book and smack Dylan upside the head. From the very first, I was rooting for this couple to finally get their act together. I loved getting ca ...more

I love friends to love romance and this one will make you swoon like a hallmark movie! Serena has loved her best friend Dylan since she was little. Trying to find a guy is hard and Serena just can’t find the one when she knows her best friend is. Dylan doesn’t do relationships after dealing with his family. But he’s secretly in love with his best friend Serena and knows she deserves better. Will Dylan open his heart or will it all come shattering down? A perfect romance story to read around the ...more

I love a good friends to lovers romance and this one will have you swooning! Serena has loved her best friend Dylan since she was little. Neither Serena or Dylan have been willing to ruin their friendship, at least no until now. I loved the chemistry and interactions between these two, everything about them felt so natural and not at all forced. I found myself so lost in this story, it was something light and sweet and Absolutely what I needed.

Overall this was a fantastic read and one t

Finally we have Dylan and Serena's story. They may have began their relationship as children on the playground but over the years it has changed. Yes they are still best friends but they feel and see each other in a different light. I also loved the supporting cast of characters ! I truly enjoy the friends to lovers genre and they did not disappoint ! Sexy, Funny and heart warming !!!

First of all...this cover...oh holy hotness (fanning myself)! If I was Serena I would have been smitten forever as well. 

Tall, Dark and Tempting is a fun, sweet, best friends to lovers novel. It completely has its tongue-in-cheek moments, as it references the clicheness of Hallmark movies, but since Serena adores watching them, Dylan can't help using them as his framework for romance, so to speak.

The sweetness of their long time friendship is infectious, but it's not to be overshadowed by the si

Dylan Stone and Serena Fields have been joined at the hip since they were children, the moment they met they were instant friends, and have maintained that close friendship all these years. But somewhere along the way the lines started to blur and they started to admire things about one another that bordered more on attraction then friendship. But both were too afraid to admit it to one another for fear they'd lose their friendship, or the feelings wouldn't be returned.

So when they are thrust t

I loved every single thing about Tall, Dark and Tempting! The best friends to lovers troupe is absolutely one of my favorites and Ms. Wilde did an amazing job with it.

I knew when we first met Serena and Dylan they were perfect for each other. The fact they had grown up as best friends, yet both developed bigger feelings and never shared those feelings with each other for years had me laughing out loud. I loved Dylan stocked Serena’s favorite ice cream for when some guy she dated turned out to be

Best friends to lovers. Sigh. One of my absolute favorite tropes. Two people who have known and cared for each other for years slowly realizing that there’s more between them … swoon! Even though sometimes it takes quite some time for said best friend to see what’s right in front of him – because that’s exactly the frustrating situation Serena Fields has to deal with in Erika Wilde’s Tall, Dark and Tempting.

Serena has loved Dylan Stone for years – and everyone around her is aware of that – only

I loved reading Dylan and Serena’s amazing story in , Dark, and Tempting by Erika Wilde, book three in her Tall, Dark, and Sexy Series. This steamy and hot story drew me in with its best friends to lover trope. Dylan and Serena have been best friends their entire life, the only person who truly understood and saw the other. Always there for each other, in good and bad times. Serena wore her feelings on her sleeve, making everyone aware of how see felt and cared about for Dylan. Dylan, being a ma ...more

all, Dark and Tempting focuses on the youngest Stone sibling, Dylan. Like his older brothers, Dylan has a lot of emotional baggage stemming from his father’s abandonment of their mother at the time when she needed him the most. Believing himself incapable of a long-term committed relationship he has kept Serena firmly in the friend zone all of their lives.

Despite his brilliant impersonation of obliviousness, Dylan is fully aware of Serena’s feelings for him, but his lack of belief in himself pr

Fast-paced, steamy and delightful! Dylan and Serena are really easy to connect with right from the start in this story. He's supporting her as she hunts for Mr. Right, all the while enjoying the scenery along the way. She's tired of all of the frogs she's having to kiss on the way towards her Prince. The characters were believable and fairly well developed, and the story line in general was pretty spot on. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed though and we could have used a little more develo ...more

The last of the Stone brothers gets his book and it's really good. Dylan and Serena have been best friends since they were really young children. Serena did not have a stable family life and spent a lot of time with Dylan's. Dylan was oblivious when Serena started having feelings for Dylan in high school but then soon realized his thoughts were going into the non friend zone so he put up some barriers. Regardless these two remained the best of friends through college and starting their careers a ...more

Tall, Dark and Tempting by Erika Wilde is the third book in the Tall, Dark and Sexy series. It can be read as a stand-alone and I can’t wait to read the others in the series. Tall, Dark and Tempting is the first solo book I’ve read from this author and it definitely won’t be my last! This story is a best friends-to lovers romance novel that was fantastic. Ms. Wilde completely sucked me into this fictional world and I never wanted to come back out!

Let me start by saying that I haven't read the first two books in this series, but it's written in such a way that you can totally read it as a standalone. I love the friends-to-lovers genre and this one (a best friends-to-lovers) hit MANY of the highlights of a good one....however, I found it just a touch lacking in that in the attempt to build some angst and drama, Dylan comes off as being a bit wishy-washy.
