About Chasing Mr. Wrong:A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
Who needs Mr. Right when you can have the perfect Mr. Wrong?
Ryder Diamond-the town's golden boy-doesn't have time for taking chances, let alone love. Against his better judgment, he lets his buddies set him up on a blind date with a girl who's only passing through town. But temporary or not, Whitney James sets fire to desires he can't control.
Before they know it, Ryder and Whitney are in a supply closet, drowning in lust. She's only in town for the summer-what better way to spend it than in the arms of Mr. Perfect? Except, she's wild and free, and he's Mr. Stability. Which means he may as well be Mr. Wrong.
And her new job? It's with Ryder's sister.
Sex and the inability to keep their hands off each other are the only things they have in common. But this little hook-up has "disaster" written all over it...and the only way Ryder can save his reputation is by avoiding the sweet little firecracker who could ruin it all.
Recommended for: Gilmore Girls fans and anyone else that gets pulled in by small town charm.
I know I’ve said this in other reviews, hell – I even said it in Chasing Desire, but Brazen Entangled never disappoints for me. I first discovered them with Wrong Bed, Right Guy in summer 2012 when I first started reading contemporary romance. I have read them very regularly ever since. And I’ve never legit disliked one. The worst it’s ever gotten is straddling the line between ‘yay’ and ‘meh,’ never spending too much time in ‘meh’ territory.
I again loved the small town charm of the Chasing Love series. It was a little better this time since it was my second time visiting – Chasing Desire was the first book of the series I’d read. I’ve bought the others but haven’t gotten to them yet.
What I really liked, first and foremost, was that it felt like a role reversal. The girl is the rebel. The guy is the one kowtowing to external / peer pressure. The guy is the one the seemed more insecure (most of the time, IMO). Actually, Ryder’s tightassed-ness (I’m not talking the good kind, ladies) kind of annoyed me.
The dirty talk had the perfect amount of filth. I loved Whitney’s free spirit. I love this group of friends that is loud and just feels “small down” and all up in each other’s business. And not like gossiping, like there when the action happens. It’s hilarious. And I loved the cowboy banter. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
