Review: Wrong Bed, Right Guy

Reviewed by Allison
 
Elle has had the biggest crush on Nathan, her boss/artiste at the art gallery that she coordinates, for months. While normally prim and proper, she decides it's time to take things in her own hands and take a chance and seduce him. She knows he normally sleeps in the loft above the gallery when he's working on something big, so she checks for his car outside and goes for it. She slips into bed with him and is amazed at the fiery passion and instant connection she's been craving for so long... until he starts to speak. 

It's NOT Nathan! Instead of figuring out who the mystery guy is, or even exploring the connection further, Elle bolts and doesn't look back.

Which leaves us with Gabe, Nathan's gorgeous brother, who spends the night with Nathan when he doesn't feel like driving all the way home to an empty house - just having had his mind blown by an amazing blonde who booked it before he could catch her name or who she was. What's a guy to do?

When Elle finds out who Gabe is, she's mortified and only wants to put it behind her...but Gabe has other plans. The perfect woman doesn't walk into your life (or fall into your bed) every day and he refuses to let her run away. He tries lunch (a greasy burger joint that she hates), flowers (she's allergic!), and making sure she's taken care of when she gets sick over the flowers (SO cute!). Slowly but surely, he works his way into her life and does his best to make sure he stays there.

I really liked Elle. She is so adorably self-conscious, you can't help but root for her to snag the sexy night-club-owning-tattoo-artist bad boy! She was easily relatable in that she had been dumped in a bad way, hurt and wasn't sure if the Gabe (or any man) was trustworthy enough to fall for. The relationship between Elle and Gabe was fun to watch develop even if they had a few missteps along the way. The plot was sort of typical, but it didn't take away from the journey and was overall a really enjoyable read and a happy ending I was more than satisfied with.

I think I love this plot just because I haven't read a lot of it in other books. I think I'll read this one...or at least add it to my TBR. Thanks!

Great review Allison, I thought the whole taking care of her after presenting her with the flowers was mega cute too. I admit I swooned a little bit at that part!

Aw, thanks, hon! How could you not swoon after he took such good care of her?!
