The Wrong Right Man by Aurora Rose Reynolds Review



* * * * * * * * * *


Waking up to a text asking why you stood up your blind date is not the best way to start the day, especially when the man in question is standing half dressed in your kitchen.

Maybe Dakota Newton shouldn’t have assumed the gorgeous man with a devastating smile standing outside the coffee shop was her date. She probably— Okay, she definitely shouldn’t have slept with him, regardless of how hot the chemistry between them was. But how could she know Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong?

Braxton Adams has been called a few things in his life, but a liar was never one of them. That all changes when he’s approached by a beautiful woman who thinks he’s there to meet her for a date.

As a businessman, Brax knows to trust his gut and never let an opportunity pass him by, so he pretends to be someone he’s not.

Maybe he shouldn’t have lied. Maybe he should have come clean. But in the end, it doesn’t matter, because now he has to prove he’s not the wrong man but the right one.

So what if he’s not the man she’s expecting? She’s the one he’s been waiting for.

I absolutely love Aurora Rose Reynolds’ writing style and storytelling. Determined, devoted and a bit bossy, her alpha males set their sights on the heroine, and in that moment, know down to their core that she’s the one for them and then do whatever it takes to win their hearts. Reynold’s describes that moment as the “boom,” and her ability to capture that insta-love moment and those feelings are one of the reasons why I love her stories.

I’ve been looking forward to The Wrong Right Man since I read the blurb last year. I’m a big fan of escapism reading, and Reynolds’ is a favorite of mine for those types of stories. While not exactly a traditional meet cute, I enjoyed Braxton and Dakota’s meeting, and I loved how firm and insistent Braxton was in his pursuit of Dakota. I loved how Dakota didn’t buckle to him, either, but instead gave him a run for his money.

The thing about Reynolds’ stories are is that they’re not realistic – they’re not intended to be, and that’s kind of the point of escapism reading. They’re over-the-top, they’re sometimes outrageous, and the fact that they wouldn’t happen this way in real life is part of what makes them so much fun. Add in the fact that they’re sweet and steamy, and it’s a recipe for a perfect story to get lost in, which is exactly what I did for an afternoon.

Aurora Rose Reynolds totally brought the boom in The Wrong Right Man with a low-angst, light-hearted, sweet and sexy romance. Braxton was a very determined hero who knew exactly what he wanted and pulled out every swoon-worthy move to get Dakota’s attention. I loved watching this couple fall in love, and I was completely swept up in their romance as I devoured this book in an afternoon. The Wrong Right Man by Aurora Rose Reynolds gets 4.5 smooches from me!
