Seducing Mr. Wrong has never felt so right…
Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she’s been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he’s completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother’s matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan—buy some lingerie and climb into her boss’s bed. The plan goes brilliantly…until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead.
Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started. Though her holier-than-thou attitude puts a serious damper on his mood, Gabe’s never been one to give up on something he wants. And he wants Elle. But does a man who lives on the dark side really have a chance with a proper lady?
Summary from Goodreads.com
My Review: When I picked up this book I was reading a lot of paranormal romance and was looking for something completely different and this book gave me exactly that. I was a fun, fast, hot read that was completely refreshing.
Since this was a contemporary book there wasn’t any action like I am used to, but the development of the characters themselves was enough to keep me interested. Gabe especially held my attention. I am a sucker for a guy with tattoos and I loved how we got to learn so much about the ones that Gabe has. Katee described the tattoos in such great detail. I was completely absorbed in those moments, wanting to learn more about how they looked and what they meant to him. Tattoos can say a lot about a person, and Gabe’s spoke volumes. Most of them had a great story and I thought it was a clever way for Katee to give us more insight into his character. As for Elle, my heart went out to her after that first chapter, but her condescending tone with Gabe rubbed me the wrong way at first. She did make a snap judgment of him, but luckily she was willing to give him another chance and I adored her by the end of the book. She kept getting herself if hilarious situations and I loved watching her try to get herself out of them.
The banter between these two was hysterical and peppered all throughout the book. A few of my favorite examples are first from Elle:
“Don’t call me babe. I’m not a floozy. Or a freaking talking pig.”
And then from Gabe:
“Don’t you ever let your hair down? If you did, it’d probably help with the stick you have shoved up your ass.”
As for the romance, holy smokes was it hot! I knew there was going to be some great tension between these two after the first chapter, but what Katee gave us exceeded my expectations. The club scene alone was one I relished and will not be forgetting and time soon. I loved how Gabe was not afraid of showing anyone how much he was into Elle. He may look like he is non-approachable with all his tattoos, but he is a romantic at heart and has decided he really wants to settle down. Appearances can often be deceiving and that is very true in both characters cases. Their chemistry was amazing and it was easy to root for these two to get past the issues that stood in the way of them being together.
Overall, I loved this book. I am not a contemporary girl at heart, but Katee has made a fan out of me with this book. It was on the shorter side, but I still felt like I got everything I was looking for. If you are not so sure about this book, I would recommend reading the first chapter and seeing what you think. If you are not completely hooked by that first chapter than I am not sure what to tell you. I was cracking up after I read it and knew immediately this was going to be a book I was going to enjoy. I am looking forward to seeing Ian and Nathan get their own books as well.
