Review: Rock Solid by Carly Phillips & Erika Wilde

Rock Solid
Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde
Book Boyfriend Series Book 4
Release Date Nov. 14, 2017

Connor Prescott doesn’t do one night stands (yes, ladies, he’s an anomaly) so when he meets a beautiful woman during a snowed-in night at the airport who wants to forget her heartache, he makes an exception. Their night together is incendiary, and by morning Connor wants more . . . except his sexy stranger is gone. He’s pretty sure he’ll never see her again, until three and a half years later she finds him, and changes his entire world with three little words … You’re a daddy.

Erika Wilde

Erika Wilde (aka Janelle Denison ( is the USA Today bestselling author of over 50 contemporary romances for multiple print publishers.

So, why the new pen name?

As Janelle Denison, I’ve always written sexy books, but lately, my writing has taken on more erotic elements that I wanted to keep separate for readers because not everyone likes their reading material on the spicier, kinkier side of romance.   However, please be assured that even as Erika Wilde, you will still get an emotionally layered story with characters you’ll care about and fall in love with.   That is always my goal, whether I’m writing straight contemporary romances, or more erotically charged stories.

Currently, I’m working on The Marriage Diaries and making sure that Dean and Jillian enjoy exploring the more erotic side to their marriage.  The series will be on-going, with no foreseeable ending as of right now, for as long as readers want to be voyeurs to Dean and Jillian’s sizzling new relationship.

I’m also planning a spin-off series in the future, featuring the hot military men that work security for Dean at Noble and Associates.  Sign up to receive my newsletter for updates and news!

Where do I even begin?? Rock Solid is part of the Book Boyfriend series, and that series title is so on point right now because Connor Prescott holds the #1 spot on my list of book boyfriends and I don’t see him getting knocked off from there anytime soon. Add in Connor finding out he is a baby daddy and then his reaction is to seriously step up to the plate. Um… hi, I am pretty sure I just died from swooning so hard. Oh, and don’t even get me started on that cover.

Connor Prescott spots Katie while waiting for his flight in the Denver airport. Intrigued by the gorgeous blonde, he is extremely thankful when their flight is cancelled due to the incoming snowstorm, as it gives him the opportunity to find out who she is. Katie, on the other hand, is not having the best day as it is Valentine’s Day and she has just found out that her boyfriend, that she has traveled to see, has been cheating on her. I guess you could say the highlight to her absolutely shitty day is when Connor approaches her while eating dinner at one of the restaurants in the airport terminal. Long story short, the two spend the night together, Katie leaves before Connor wakes up the next morning leaving him with no way of finding her again, and, as a result of that night, Katie becomes pregnant.

Fast forward three years, Katie now has a three year old daughter named Val, and as luck would have it the universe has decided that it is time for Connor Prescott to come back into her life and for her to therefore tell him that he has a daughter.

Oh my god, this book. It is hands down my favorite in the series. I honestly loved every part of this book even the length, which for the rest of the books in this series were just a bit on the short side for me. I loved the flashback in the beginning, detailing how Connor and Katie met and the night they shared together. I loved how Katie found out who Connor was, I won’t spoil it, but it was such a unique way to have them “reconnect” and felt totally natural. I loved how Connor immediately stepped up when he found out about Val. I LOVE Connor in general but I won’t go into too much detail about that. Ok, one thing: Connor isn’t a one night stand kind of guy. Um, is he like a magical unicorn, or something. I LOVED Connor’s relationship with his daughter as well as his relationship when he is with both Katie and Val. Val was adorable and I am so glad that she was a part of the storyline as much as she was. I LOVED that kitchen scene (You will know what I’m talking about when you get to it, trust me 😉). Ugh, I honestly could keep going but you need to actually read this book instead of spending all your time reading my babbling thoughts on it.

Then, pick up the rest of the series.
You won’t be disappointed.

5 stars

P.S. Thank you Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde for writing this amazing book.
Oh, and Happy Release Day!!
