This good girl is ready to be bad…
He may be at a romance readers’ convention, but a naked woman in the elevator is not what horror writer Ryan Wheeler expects. Now he can’t take his eyes off of her—and not just because he saw her naked, though her luscious curves certainly aren’t helping the matter. She’s beautiful, funny, snarky…and a complication he doesn’t need.
Running into her teen heartthrob while naked wasn’t exactly part of romance novelist Andi Palmer’s weekend plans. Worse, he doesn’t recognize her and gives her a fake name. Years ago, he shot her down in the worst possible way, and now this? It’s time for a little down-and-dirty revenge.
Ryan’s more than a little turned on by this good girl who wants to be bad. But things aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re keeping from one another might just end this sexy little rendezvous before it ever begins…
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Could you be so petty that when you see the guy who hurt your feelings in high school you’d try to get back at him? Ok, so apparently he doesn’t remember you and he is hotter than before but still… you send him to a book-cover male model contest? I’ll concede that was a brilliant move but come on! Are you 12?
The best part is that Andi, romance writer, has mistaken Ryan for his baby brother Nolan, the asshole from high school, and at first Ryan thinks Andi has discovered his secret identity… he is actually a famous horror writer who’s had a bit of an issue with a psycho-stalker fan. So it’s like a double mistaken identity plot.
They have great chemistry together and they start a kind of affair, after all, what happens in Vegas…
Well, the whole story goes around Ryan trying to find a way to tell Andi he is not his brother while also trying to get to know her. Andi on her part, is completely clueless about Ryan’s real identity and even though she finds him pretty much irresistible in every way she kind of forces him to be all “pretend”.
Lots of steam, romance and a bit of drama, Betting on the Wrong Brother was a quick, very enjoyable read. I can’t say I’ll remember much about it after some time but I definitely had fun while reading it.
