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 premise of a woman accidentally climbing into bed with the wrong man captured me (as did the sexy cover). Prim art gallery coordinator Elle is out of her comfort zone when she attempts to seduce her boss. She’s pushed into trying this tactic because of her mother’s matchmaking efforts leave something to be desired. Thinking her boss is the one, she throws out hints but he remains clueless so this is her last ditch effort to gain his attention. The author gives the whole scenario, along with the entire book, a light-hearted humorous spin that is fun to read.
Elle’s plan goes all wrong when she realizes her boss is not the one she crawled into bed with. And Elle is totally turned on by this sexy stranger who turns out to be her boss’s brother, nightclub mogul Gabe. While she wants to put the whole event behind her, Gabe has other ideas. He wants more of the hot blonde who bolted before he could finish what they started. He was a bit of a contradiction – his outside not matching the stereotype – and Elle wanted nothing to do with him even once she found out who he was. Though her prim exterior causes Gabe to work a little harder, he’s never given up on something he wants so he pursues her. And the fun ensues as these two just can’t quite get it right and you laugh through some really funny scenes.
Even though the equation was a cliché -bad boy meets proper girl- it worked for this light-hearted story. My only complaint was right when the major problem began to unfold, it fixed itself all too simply. Can’t say anything bad about the writing but the book overall didn’t “wow” me. It is a good beach read that will make you smile and laugh.
