When determined singleton Shea Summers is persuaded to become the “wife” of the Lord of Edgerton Manor, the last thing she wants to do is play house with a stranger.
Brooding playboy Brando Marshall, is far from happy when Shea turns up at his sprawling estate with production crew in tow. Surely she’s just another woman after his wallet? And if she’s looking for Mr Right, she’s definitely hitting on the wrong guy. Then again, after catching an unscheduled glimpse of her knickers, perhaps Brando needs to teach this “gold-digger” a lesson!
She’s seizing the moment, he’s breaking the rules, and when bad boys can be so much fun, who can resist getting on the right side of Mr. Wrong…
When Jane personally asked me to review her second novel, I instantly jumped at the chance.
The prologue introduces Brando Marshall. He is 35 years old, single and the last thing he wants is a wife. His sister is addicted to putting him and his gorgeous country home on TV and she deeply enjoys the ratings which follow. She cares a lot more about the ratings than whether her brother is happy or not. Selfish sister alert! When we meet Shea Summers, I instantly had a connection with her purely because of her organisation skills.
The novel captures both point of views from Brando and Shea. At times, the two point of views collide and it’s as if there is someone else narrating the narrative – that person being us, the reader. Throughout the narrative, the tension between Brando and Shea gets stronger and stronger. But besides from their obvious feelings for one another, we don’t learn a lot about either of them. At the beginning, we learn little personality traits about them and towards the end, more is shared. As a reader, I needed something in the middle.
Personally, I don’t think Jane gets the recognition she truly deserves. The Right Side Of Mr Wrong is brilliant, fun, flirty and a fantastic read. You won’t be disappointed.
