Synopsis: Seducing Mr. Wrong has never felt so right…
Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she’s been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he’s completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother’s matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan—buy some lingerie and climb into her boss’s bed. The plan goes brilliantly…until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead.
Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started. Though her holier-than-thou attitude puts a serious damper on his mood, Gabe’s never been one to give up on something he wants. And he wants Elle. But does a man who lives on the dark side really have a chance with a proper lady?
The First Line: “Tonight she was seducing Mr. Right.” Um …. Alrighty then. J
The Good: Elle is a good girl who wants to do bad things. Gabe is a bad boy with a heart of gold. What’s not to love?
My favorite thing about this book was the humor. From the beginning, I felt Elle’s embarrassment and Gabe’s confusion. More than once I found myself laughing out loud. Since this isn’t my usual type of read, I can honestly say that the humor was refreshing.
Elle does everything she can to become a stereotype and to fit people into neat little boxes. Her fear of germs and her OCD was fun and made me skirm along with her.
Overall, the writing was fabulous and I fell for the characters.
The Bad: I actually wanted there to be a bit more, like meeting Ian and confronting Elle’s mother. The book ended a chapter too early even if it is the first in a series. It felt more like it stopped than concluded.
Recommendation: This is definitely NC-17, so if you aren’t into that, don’t bother. If you don’t mind it, it’s definitely worth your time.
