I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma’s boy? Check, check and check.
Now I can’t stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It’s just a harmless crush, right? It’s not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It’s not like I’m going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he’s the doctor. Shoot. Me.
But what if, for once, the man I’ve had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?
I’m reading this series completely out of order, but I still really enjoyed Wrong. Give me a hot doctor romance and I’ll lap it up.
College senior Chloe has a huge crush on Luke, one of the customers at the coffee shop where she works. When she goes to the student clinic for birth control pills, the last thing she expects is to find herself in stirrups, hoo-ha to face with Luke, who just so happens to be a gynecologist. Cue awkward hilarity. The wonderful combination laugh out loud humor and steam won me over, despite several shortcomings that prevent this from being a stellar read.
Their age difference puts Luke off initially, but only for a hot second. Literally, he rejects her in one paragraph and jumps on her like he’s starving and she’s a buffet the next paragraph. It’s a pretty weak effort to resist her, and he never mentions their difference in ages or the fact that she’s a college student and he’s a successful doctor after he decides to give in and hook up. The only exceptions are a couple jabs at her childish behavior.
There are missed opportunities to build the plot. Issues are introduced with Luke’s parents and his ex that are barely addressed. For some reason, Chloe doesn’t inform Luke of inappropriate comments by people in his social circle. What the what?
Chloe’s stalker best friend, Everly, is beyond annoying, but I liked really liked Chloe. She is just plain nice and very easy going except for her desperation to lose her virginity. This story is hot, hot, hot, but it did feel it’s a little insensitive of Luke to introduce Chloe to sex by throwing her into the deep pool. He has no problem being rough and dirty with her. She’s quite the dirty birdie herself though.
This was an entertaining read for me overall. If you like your erotica with a heavy dose of hilarity, Wrong may suit you. Just don’t expect a super developed plot.
