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?
Wrong is a full-length, standalone novel by Jana Aston
Review: Oh my goodness, this book was hysterically funny. I laughed to the point of tears reading the first few chapters. I cannot stress how entertaining this book is. Aston has written a little gem here. The book takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from hysterically funny to emotional. Wrong is also hot…like sometimes downright scorching.
I have to admit something and I’m a little ashamed to say it, but…I hated Luke. Hated him. He’s the male main character and I could not find one redeeming quality about him. I tried to love him, like a lot of people who wrote reviews said they did, but I just couldn’t. It’s possible this is due to the fact that I am a bit of a feminist and if you keep that in mind when you read the book (because you should. It really is a great book. Don’t let the fact that I hate Luke deter you) you will probably understand where I’m coming from. You don’t have to agree. I just wanted to be honest. It’s for this same reason, that I kind of didn’t like Sophie, the female main character either. I have issues…I know this.
If any of you out there end up reading this book, someone please reply or email me or tweet at me or whatever about your thoughts on the whole brother thing. I think it was an unnecessary addition to the book that could have added another layer, but it wasn’t explored well enough to really warrant inclusion. As is, Aston could have left the brother out of the story completely and it would not have made much difference to the story. That’s just my two cents.
Despite my personal crazy, I really liked the book. I read it in one day. The premise wasn’t anything new, but I don’t think it was meant to be. It’s just not that deep of a book. It wraps up nicely and despite my feelings on the Luke character, there is an epilogue written from his POV that did redeem him just a little in my opinion.
