Brianne Nave is never doing her friends a favor again. When they begged her to go on a blind date, she didn’t expect someone so perfectly gorgeous. She’s a mousy librarian—totally not in this man’s league. And judging by his odd reaction when she opens the door, he knows it, too.
Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He’s not thrilled about the date until he’s shocked silent by the prickly little librarian’s sweet curves and kissable lips…and her smart mouth. But then an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?
When their friends strand them in a cabin to “work things out,” Bri’s not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line—Ryan’s career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He’ll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she’s foolish enough to give him her heart, he’ll take it with him.
Seriously loved this book! It’s a reread for me as I first read it early last year and wanted to get a review posted here before the third book in the series, Falling For His Best Friend, comes out on May 19th.
In Bed With Mr. Wrong is well-written, sizzling hot, and has some fantastic characters, both as leads and as supporting. It’s funny, has lots of banter and great dialogue, and some amazing character insights. It’s a foot-in-the-mouth blind-date cute meet story that kind of morphs into enemy to lovers, trapped in a snowstorm, and forced proximity, and yet, somehow, the story itself seems shiny and new with surprises and loads of fun.
I loved that Bri and Ryan got off on the wrong foot, though his brother, Drew, and her best friend, Avery, thought they were perfect for each other. But even though they didn’t like each other much, they did connect physically. In fact, it was much easier for the pair to have sex than talk to each other. Until Avery and Drew stepped in, that is, and forced them to work their problems out. That’s when things got real. For both of them.
If you like your romance rocky and sizzling, your characters entertaining and engaging, and your settings snowy, this is the book for you. It’s the first novel in Katee Robert’s Out of Uniform series and it’s one you don’t want to miss.
