One-off, moving on sex wasn’t meant to be this hot…
When determined singleton Shea Summers is persuaded to become the “wife” of the Lord of Edgerton Manor, the last thing she wants to do is play house with a stranger.
Brooding playboy Brando Marshall, is far from happy when Shea turns up at his sprawling estate with production crew in tow. Surely she’s just another woman after his wallet? And if she’s looking for Mr Right, she’s definitely hitting on the wrong guy. Then again, after catching an unscheduled glimpse of her knickers, perhaps Brando needs to teach this “gold-digger” a lesson!
She’s seizing the moment, he’s breaking the rules, and when bad boys can be so much fun, who can resist getting on the right side of Mr. Wrong...
The Right Side of Mr Wrong is the kind of flirty, fun book which puts a smile on your face from start to finish. Once I’d started reading, the humour and light-hearted writing made sure the only time my Kindle was getting put down was once I’d got to the end.
I loved the chemistry between Shea and Brando – right from the beginning when Shea makes her grand entrance and flashes her underwear, the one upmanship started and this provided a lot of laughs throughout the book.
As for other characters, I had kind of expected to see more of them, and especially see more of Bryony since she seemed to be important to the plot. However, Jane Linfoot really honed in on the relationship between Shea and Brando and it worked so well. From the saucy moments (and there’s a few), to the laughs and the endearing, sweeter moments, Brando and Shea were two characters I really cared for.
The pacing worked great too – it was fast from the start and this never faltered. The Right Side of Mr Wrong never got boring. I also loved how everything was linked in – all the small things mentioned earlier on in the book which you think might have been forgotten towards the end never were – and from the title to the characteristics of Shea and Brando to their reservations and emotions, nothing was pushed aside. It all worked brilliantly.
This book was just really refreshing and uplifting. It was nice to read a different take on a romance, one which managed to combine emotion without over-the-top drama and glum moments. The Right Side of Mr Wrong was a whirlwind of fun.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
About the Author:
I’m Jane Linfoot, and I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. For me, writing romance is cool because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
