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...
I honestly do not know how to start this review, so I'm just going to jump right into it. I freaking LOVED this book! It is funny mixed with sassy mixed with sexy. For the most part of the book, Brando is an insufferable ass. And I absolutely loved him. He's sexy, brooding, and knows that he can have just about any woman. What he doesn't want is a wife, so when he reluctantly picks Shae, he decides to push every single one of her buttons. And he has a grand 'ol time ticking her off...until it backfires on him. Shea freaking rocked. When Brando goads her, she shoves him right back. She decides that she needs to get her past out of her system and basically uses Brando for his body. You. Go. Girl! I loved watching her take down Brando peg by peg. Never have I enjoyed watching a character crumble when it comes to falling in love. It was magnificent. I adored Brando and Shea, especially when they were pushing each other. The bantering between them fueling into desire... Holy moly! When Brando finally gets Shea where he wants her, I loved watching him try anything to get her back in bed. Talk about a man on a mission...
The Right Side of Wrong is a fantastically witty book. It is a quick and funny book that'll leave you laughing. I like to pick my favorite quote and use it to open my review posts. With this book, I could not pick just one quote. There were so many hilarious one-liners flying between Shea and Brando, especially when he's trying to make rhymes with her name. I loved Jane's first book, How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates, but I think this one is my favorite so far. I can't wait to see what Jane has in store for us next.
I don't normally do this, but I have to share some of my favorite quotes...
"What's a stocking top between friends, after all?"
"Welcome back to the land of the living! Your mother must be a riveting conversationlist - remind me to say 'Hi' to her sometime when I've got a free day or two!"
"Brando! What the ... I said put me down, not eat my face!"
"Sorry Brando, but if you behave like a complete jerk, I will tell you."
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of gumboots, and you'll notice this weakness for shoes comes through in my book covers! I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

Thanks so much for having me on your lovely blog Crystal. Thanks for an AWESOME review! SO pleased you loved the book - you have no idea how fabulous it is when someone does! xxReplyDelete
You're welcome. I loved the book and it kept me up for most of the night. ;o)Delete
Oh, and just to tease you, the next book coming is Bryony's story... and it's twice as long ;)ReplyDelete
I was hoping it would be Bryony next. Would it be mean to hope that Brando get a little bit of revenge? Ok, at least some teasing is in order. :DDelete
Thank you for hosting today! Great Review!ReplyDelete

Yes, unfortunately, and it became clear only after 6 years, when at last he showed his true colours. He was good as acting out the part of Mr. Right.ReplyDelete
