The Right Side of Mr Wrong. Jane Linfoot
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Sometimes you just want a fun, easy to read, straightforward romance. This book does all that with the added attraction of some gentle humour and some really emotional parts. Oh and lots and lots of hot, spicy sex too 🙂
Shea takes a job understanding it’s her organisational skills needed, Brando has agreed to let his sister film his sprawling estate for her TV programme. It was so popular and got so much fan mail that she wants to do a follow up- advertising for a wife for him. He’s not happy, but little sis has a way of twisting him round her finger…and somehow he agrees, to his astonishment. Ah well… he thinks, I don’t actually have to marry, in fact he plans to leave as soon as the gold-digger, would-be wife arrives. Then Shea turns up, and he doesn’t know how, but instead of jumping on the helicopter that brought her and fleeing, he’s carrying her indoors out of the mud where Those Shoes, the F Me shoes, got her stuck.
Both Shea and Brando are hiding, escaping from their thoughts and pasts with constant action – he with running and jumping off trees and buildings, and she with her incessant need to keep busy. In fact it was only the drop out of a client that led to her being free for this job – then she finds out its a wife interview so to speak, and not an organisation of the estate and house that she’s needed for. Brando does his typical playboy approach, over confident, cocky and certain she’ll do for a quick one off fling, and she plays along with the wife scenario realising its the one way to get him to back off. She can see through him.
Before they know it they’re getting hot and heavy. How did that happen? Its almost as if neither intended it, but somehow the pull was too much to resist, then kissing becomes touching and touching becomes…and they’re deep in the throes of passion, hot and erotic sex, and each time saying to themselves this will be the burnout time, when they can get back to normal.
Its a fun, spicy read, some sad parts and some funny parts. I loved them both. and enjoyed how they grew and worked through their problems. Shea’s sweetie obsession though – that wasn’t funny to me, just really really irritating and each time I saw ref to pink shrimps or something it just made me cringe a little. Don’t really know why that was there – it added nothing to her character or the story for me. Still, I’m a reader not the author, no doubt there’s a reason that escapes me….
If you want a fun read, this is excellent, it’s a one off only for me but enjoyable. It’s £1.99 for 174 pages so not a long book, perfect for those who want a quick read.
