Wrong Bed, Right Guy (A Come Undone Novel) (Entangled Brazen)
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?
Wrong Bed, Right Guy begins in one of the most embarrassing ways I think I could imagine. Picture this…………….
You have been lusting after this guy for ages and you figure you have dropped enough hints, none picked up, that it is time to make the first move! So, you get yourself all ‘gussied up’ into some sexy lingerie and decide to sneak into to his bed, while he is asleep, and get the ball rolling with a bit of horizontal hanky panky. Great Idea!?……….NOT!
Elle Walsh fucks it up royally! She manages to end up in bed with the ‘man of her dreams’ brother, Gabe Shultz. Even I had a little blush of embarrassment on her behalf. Hell girl…way make an idiot out of yourself! Poor Lass!
Elle is sweet, naïve, innocent and has been publicly screwed over by a dick ex….Trust Issues alert! Gabe looks rough, tats, full on badass image happening, right down to being a tattoo artist and nightclub owner.
These two appear to be polar opposites. I imagine them to look like a quintessential odd couple. You know what I mean? The tatted bad boy and the blonde beauty. The surprise is art. Art is their common ground, she paints and he creates tattoos. It is their gifts that bring them together, it quite poetic, if you think about it. Oh and then there’s the 80s action movies. Don’t Judge them………. there is absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of ”Terminator” action. An oldie but a goodie as Hubby would say!
Gabe doesn’t have it easy. He wants Elle but he has never really had to chase. Surprise, Surprise! Yeah you guessed it, he fucks it up. Let me say this, a burger and a game of pool does not make an ice breaker!
Take two; Gabe fucks that one a beauty as well! An allergic reaction, a quick trip to the pharmacy for a dose of Benadryl later and Gabe is still on the back foot. Relax, he makes up the ground but it is head shakingly amusing to watch him scramble.
There is a particularly beautiful moment when Gabe says to Elle,
” Will you let me make love to you?”
Who would say no to a HOT, badarse, tattooed (did I say Hot?) guy asking you that? Uh, well NOT Me! And then there is this…..
“I could spend days with my mouth between your legs and never be satisfied’
I like this novel. I read it back in August 2012 and reread it for this review. If I am honest I think it was even better the second time around. I enjoyed how both Gabe and Elle grew. Gabe has to learn how to not open his mouth and change his feet and Elle has to learn how to trust again.
You know, just the little things!
3 ¾ stars?
Teena… why? Elle is a wee bit of a runner. Runners make me twitchy.
***Scandal note here: I don’t have a pretty 3 3/4 star graphic so I’m taking creative privileges and rounding this up to 4 stars! Just for the sake of pretty, Teena’s rating remains!
