Lance Townsend craves freedom after years living a structured existence in the Army. But just as he’s about to start on his bucket list, Lance receives an unexpected request: check in on his goddaughter. The problem? The adorable little girl’s aunt is the one woman he’s never been able to forget.
Carly Quigley can’t believe her brother’s best friend, the man who jilted her years ago, is at her door. He claims her brother asked him to check in on her niece and their fixer-upper,
but all either of them can focus on is their undeniable attraction. Carly knows Lance is counting down the hours to leave, which makes him the wrong man for her. Unfortunately, the wrong man has become oh-so-tempting.
Each book in the Wrong Man series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Kissing Mr. Wrong
Book #2 Tempting Mr. Wrong
Very nice contemporary, well written romance.
Carly is guardian of her 4 year old niece Mya after the death of her brother and sister-in-law Gretchen over a year ago. Lance is an old army buddy of her brother. They met at her brothers wedding but Lance was unwilling to start something with the baby sister of his friend. After Carly sends him an old letter of her brother she found, he decides to visit and work at the house, as requested by Chris (her brother). He has just left the army and has a bucket list he wants to work on. After being raised by his Korean ‘tiger mom’ and being enlisted 8 years he feels a strong need to expand his horizons.
Both Carly and Lance and especially Mya were great characters. They form a little family and the attraction between Carly/Lance is sizzling. But he has plans and these do not include a family (yet).
I liked the story. It was well rounded and very sweet. There are some steamy scenes but not too explicit. I read it quite fast. For me this rates 3,5 stars. The reason I give it 3 stars is because – although I really liked it and it has a fresh feeling to it – I have still read it before.
