I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma’s boy? Check, check and check.
Now I can’t stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It’s just a harmless crush, right? It’s not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It’s not like I’m going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he’s the doctor. Shoot. Me.
But what if, for once, the man I’ve had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?
Wrong (Wrong #1)
By Jana Aston
It’s not wrong if it’s right for you.
Wrong has been on my radar for a long time. That bright coloured cover with the hint of a hot guy looking all corporate and sophisticated definitely caught my eye. I didn’t buy it when it first came out though because there were rumours.
Wrong was wrong.
I heard Wrong was bad and people were offended by the way the hero talked to the heroine. There was talk that readers were turned off by his job and how she found out what he did for a living. I decided to hold off on buying and sit tight to see if the hype died down. Well, as per usual, with my very large Want To Read list on Goodreads, it got buried and I forgot all about it. Then recently, it caught my attention again.
This year has been a bit of a learning curve for me when it comes to my book selections. I have tested my comfort zones, decided that someone else’s 1 star could be my 5 stars and stopped judging a book by its cover, genre or price tag.
I enjoyed the story. Yes, there were a few times my eye twitched but there were more times that I smirked, snickered and snorted. And talk about blushing. Oh boy, this book certainly got my heart pumping. Now, I know there was some negative talk about the hero’s dirty talk. My approach to this is…whatever floats your boat. I’m not a fan of being called nasty names, but I’m also not a fan of being called honey or sweetie-pie. So, when I read a steamy story I try not to take too much notice of the pet-names.
The storyline was entertaining, the characters were interesting and I found the steamy scenes HOT! I would say that my biggest negative, was the immaturity of the characters. For me, it wasn’t just the heroine, Sophie who is 21. I thought the hero, Luke was also a wee bit immature at 36. One example was when he used Sophie to push his mother’s buttons. He apologised later, but geez, he’s a grown man.
I started this story only knowing vaguely that some people weren’t happy with it but I took a risk and I’m happy I did. Wrong is about a young woman about to finish college and start her working career falling in lust with a man. That man popped up in the most unexpected of places and turned her world around. Attraction started it all but soon it became more. This is definitely not a sweet love story. It’s fiery, kinky and a little bit angsty too. Love isn’t about numbers and it definitely isn’t about staying in your social circles. Sometimes, a detour can lead you to the best and most magical place.
Wrong, for me, was all good. I’m kicking myself that I waited so long to read it…but on the other hand, stoked that I got it for $1.00. I wasn’t offended by the dirty talk or his profession…it’s just another story that entertained me and left me with a smile on my face.
