In Bed With Mr. Wrong (Out of Unform #1) by Katee Robert-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 13, 2014
The blind date from hell is about to get hotter…Brianne Nave is never doing her friends a favor again. When they begged her to go on a blind date, she didn’t expect someone so perfectly gorgeous. She’s a mousy librarian—totally not in this man’s league. And judging by his odd reaction when she opens the door, he knows it, too.
Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He’s not thrilled about the date until he’s shocked silent by the prickly little librarian’s sweet curves and kissable lips…and her smart mouth. When an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control, Ryan’s floored. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?
When their friends strand them in a cabin to “work things out,” Bri’s not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line—Ryan’s career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He’ll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she’s foolish enough to give him her heart, he’ll take it with him.
REVIEW: IN BED WITH MR. WRONG is the first instalment in Katee Robert’s new contemporary adult series Out of Uniform. This is Pararescuer Ryan Flannery and Librarian Brianne Nave’s storyline.
The premise follows Ryan and Brianne who have been set up together on a blind date. Both have issues in their past that have not been addressed and come into the relationship with preconceived notions about one another. Immediately, upon meeting for the first time, things become tense, aggressive and in your face rude and condescending. They were not an easy couple to like.
As the storyline progresses, their anger and intensity towards one another fuels the sexual attraction and to make matters worse, their friends understand what is happening if Ryan and Brianne do not. Locked away in a wilderness cabin for the weekend, Ryan and Brianne will eventually learn to let go of the past and open their hearts to one another but Ryan’s life in the Air Force will once again become front and center when Ryan is called back for his next assignment.
IN BED WITH MR. WRONG reveals the hurt that two people have had to endure from things in their past. Ryan’s childhood reputation and family connections have labeled him a trouble maker; and Brianne’s early years in the foster system have prevented Brianne from trusting anyone in her life. Brianne is unable to let go of the past and will not allow her heart to fall victim to loss again.
Katee Robert blends a romantic storyline with a little bit of the military and a whole lot of friends who mean well. This is a story about preconceived notions and a small town mentality that refuses to forgive and forget. But in the end, sometimes it is the wall that one builds around the heart that requires someone else to help tear it down.
