Sometimes it's so right to be wrong!
Mr. All Wrong by R.C. Stephens releases December 4th!
Genre: Contemporary Romance

MrAllWrong Amazon
The first time I met Evie Harper, she threw a cream pie at my face. I actually hadn’t met her, just saw her. It was more like she hated everything I stood for and showed me her opinion with an airborne cream pie. Yes, she smacked me front and center on my face. The second time I saw Evie, I didn’t realize she was the cream-pie-throwing bandit, and she took my breath away in a flowing red gown at a gala.

Of course I couldn’t resist her looks, so I asked her to dance. She called me a schmuck and stalked off.

My own Cinderella ran away from me. I shouldn’t have chased her down. We were all wrong for each other. But her fire red hair and feisty personality reeled me in, and I was hooked. Chicago’s most renowned playboy was finally falling head over loafers. At least it felt that way because she was like no other woman I’d met before . . . Evie was special . . .

Problem was I had trust issues when it came to women. Freud would’ve probably said it was my mother’s doing. Somehow Evie made me believe in her . . . trust her . . .

Big damn mistake!

One I hope I won’t live to regret . . .
But then again how could someone so wrong for me turn out to be so damn perfect?

Get out!
He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He’s always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy.
It’s been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her. 
He couldn’t be more wrong.
The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants.
Maybe he should’ve gone into the auto-recovery business after all.
I hate you.
Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything.
Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her—morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she’s breaking a little more inside every single day.
Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she’s constantly reminded of exactly what she’s missing—the other half of her soul.
Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she’s sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she’s lost all over again.
Don’t ever let me go.
Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too…not.
One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he’s missing—literally and figuratively—and suddenly he’s back at square one.
The only problem with being back at square one? He won’t be able to leave her a second time.
Especially since the first time around he didn’t have a child with her to consider.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Once the bar was cleared out and locked up for the night and the rest of the staff sent home, Ryan started in on me. The little shit had been waiting hours to have this discussion.
“Can we please have a serious conversation?” He washed a glass as he spoke, but his eyes met mine, and they looked almost sad.
When Nick stopped what he was doing and inched closer to where Ryan and I stood, I played dumb.
“What are we getting serious about?”
“You know what,” Nick said, but Ryan waved him off.
“Let me handle this,” he whispered to Nick.
“Um, I can hear you, you know?”
“Of course I know,” Ryan snapped. “Now, listen. There’s something I can’t figure out, okay? And I don’t want you getting all pissed off and closing up on us when I ask you.”
I groaned, wishing that Ryan would cut to the chase already and stop beating around the bush like a fucking girl. “Spit it out. I can handle whatever it is you’re too chickenshit to ask.”
He dropped the glass into the soapy water and it splashed all over his shirt. Thank God he’d put it back on after last call. “What’s the deal with you and Shelby?”
That was it? That was his big dramatic question?
“What kind of question is that? How am I supposed to answer that?”
Nick said slowly, “I think what Ryan’s trying to say is, we can see that you’re not happy. We don’t understand why you stay.”
I wasn’t sure how to answer that question, or if I wanted to. I’d kept everything to myself for so long, not wanting to burden anyone with my mess, but maybe it was time to unload. I wasn’t good at asking for help, but maybe that’s what these two were here for. God knew I’d do anything for either of them, and I knew they’d do the same for me. I just hated the very idea of needing anyone.

This was a tough book for me. I think I took the title to heart and really hated the guy!! Like to the depths of my SOUL!!! I liked the supporting characters, I loved the other Fisher brothers, I liked the writing in general and I even liked Claudia and Shelby. However, what I didn't care for was the hero, Frank being a total douche canoe. Yep, you read me correctly - douche canoe. At no time in this book did I find his self-deprecating, woe is me, I can't help but be a cheater self - a redeemable character. The excuses and storyline that were used to totally sweep away the girlfriend, Shelby, of nine years felt unresolved. 
We're supposed to believe that because Frank saw Claudia in his bar and had this "immediate intense feeling" we're all supposed to jump on the Frank train? Eww. At no time did I want to jump on anything of his and so I skimmed through to read about the brothers. I possibly missed some good parts, but I went back and read about how while Shelby was sleeping in their bed, Frank decided to take a shower and "think" about Claudia while in there so that he could then climb in bed with his longtime girlfriend after doing that and thinking of another. I've been brought up that cheating begins in the mind and once you go there...well, it's only a step away until you do it. This wasn't a celebrity he was fantasizing about or someone unattainable, but someone who repeatedly came in his bar and he flirted with. At first, Claudia's reaction was spot on - she got angry and didn't want anything to do with him. However, after having him relentlessly call her and then he kisses her, she lets it all go after finding out he cut his girlfriend loose. How nice of him!
 Claudia will be the girlfriend in nine years who gets left when he can't find a reason to marry her unless in the third book they're sooo happy. Call me jaded or whatever, call me having a bad book weekend, but this storyline didn't give me warm fuzzies or heartwarming feelings. It just didn't and that's okay because someone will love this book. Overall, it just wasn't my cup of tea, but that doesn't mean it won't be someone else's or that they won't love the hero because that's what's so great about books! They bring everyone together because we're so different. This one just wasn't for me.

I was given an ARC copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own and do not reflect anyone else's. 


About the Author

  I got fired from my last job.  It's true.  I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone like you?" And I'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is that sometimes being all sorts of awesome isn't fun for other people. They don't always tend to like it. lol  So I picked my pride off the floor, bought a laptop and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing stories that meant something to me was a million times better than working my ass off for someone who didn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.  My soul has never felt more satisfied.  My heart has never been more full. I've never worked so hard in my life, but I love every second of it. I truly do. It is SO worth it.  All of it.  Every moment. The journey it took to get to this point- I wouldn't change a thing.
