Looking for Mrs. Right...

Single father of three, Ross Bencher, knows the kind of woman he wants: someone predictable, reliable, and safe, who can give his kids the security they deserve. Someone entirely different from high-altitude mountaineer Kelsey. Kelsey bewitches him with her long legs and wild passion and is about as far from his ideal as a woman can get, but try t

Ross is in town for business when he notices Kelsey. Not one for having one-night stands he's feeling down over his recent divorce and believes that losing himself in the arms of a beautiful woman is just what he needs.

Kelsey is nervous about her latest trip and is in the mood for an adventure. Looking at Ross from across the room, she knows a night spent with the handsome hunk of male would settle her nerves.

What neither of them was counting on was on their instant conne

After reading the previous two books in this series, I was expecting a fantastic read and that's exactly what I got. Inara Scott does it again with the story of a divorced father of three and a mountain climber.

Yes this kind of sounds like an odd combination, but it really works. The author has crafted two characters who are likeable and have real issues to deal with. I loved this book and all of the characters, Ross, Kelsey, the kids and Marie, Kelsey's best friend. I even liked Ross's ex-wife

Some of the best books are about opposites. This one is no exception, divorced father of three Ross is a New York business man, a corporate developer and city slicker. Kelsey is a mountain girl, she doesn't just embrace the outdoors she's an extremely renowned and successful climber who has no interest in children or relationships. She's confident in who she is and what she wants.

The first chapter of the book after the prologue is pretty amusing as Kelsey is asked to help out best fr

The third book in a series, I must admit that I haven't read the previous two. And whilst this could easily be a standalone read, I shall certainly be reading the other Bencher sibling books as this was a great read.

If ever there were true opposites it is Ross Bencher and Kelsey Hanson. I loved them both. She climbs mountains, trains intensely, travels the world and has an allergy to children. He is a Dad of three trying to run his business and cope with life after divorce. When a ne

I really love a good contemporary romance and Inara Scott does an outstanding job in delivering that to her readers. After ten years of marriage, Ross Bencher finds himself divorced with three kids. He doesn't know what went wrong and didn't see it coming, but his wife just knew there was something more, something real out there, a love that is passionate and true, and see decided she wanted to try to find it. Kelsey Hanson was an adventurer, a mountain climber, and totally not Ross' type, yet w ...more

I always get a little thrill when I read a new to me author and they blow me out of the water and Inara Scott had done that with Falling For Mr. Wrong. First off I love the one night stand comes back to bite you in the butt plot line and in this book she comes back as a fill in nanny/babysitter. Secondly, I love when two characters are so mismatched but the chemistry

“…she always told me that having a child was like having a piece of forever, right there in front of you. It’s like looking at the summit fresh, every morning…”

This is another author that I’ve never read before and I have to tell you that this book was a perfect start for me. I absolutely loved this one for many different reasons.

I thought that Kelsey’s character was exceptional. She is this driven athlete, devoted daughter and friend who dedicates her life in caring and protecting t

So, I have read every book that has been written so far about the Bencher family. The impress I have gotten from the other books was Ross was a really young sibling. Well, my little bubble was burst when I found out that he was about a year younger than Britt. Anyway, today I bring you the third installment of the Bencher family, Falling for Mr. Wrong by Inara Scott. I must say that have enjoyed each and every book. I believe there is one

Two people that are the total opposite fight to keep their feelings hidden. A man that wants a person that I’m sorry is safe when he could have a woman that could rock his world. A woman that is frightened of kids is about to take care of three children but spending a little time with them and she sees that they are not so bad after all. Now if only they could quit the running around and just be together it would be wonderful.

This is the third installment of the Bencher Family series

Ross Bencher kinda stole my heart. And then his 3 adorable kids enter the picture and I’m a goner. Inara Scott took a typical one night stand plot and turned it into a really sweet opposites attract romance. The first time Ross meets Kelsey, he’s just signed divorce papers and is feeling lonely and Kelsey is about to leave for Nepal the next day to climb a dangerous mountain. They know they’ll never see each other again so they give in and enjoy one night of crazy bow-chicka-wow-wow. Fast forwar ...more

Kelsey and Ross meet up there years prior. He has just signed his divorce papers and Kelsey is about to go on a climb to Annapurna in Nepal. The mountain that killed her mother. Both think each other wrong, but with the chemistry agree to a one night stand with no holds barred. Neither one forgets the other.

Three years later Ross has moved to Denver where his ex-wife and kids are living early

FALLING FOR MR. WRONG is the third storyline in Inara Scott's adult, contemporary romance series focusing on the Bencher family and the men and women they love. This is Ross Bencher and Kelsey Hanson's story. Although this is the third in the series, it can be read as a stand alone without too much difficulty. Inara brings Ross's brother and wife into this particular storyline which gives a familiar feel to the series. With a family merger in the works, we may get to

Falling for Mr. Wrong is the third book in the Bencher series. I will confess that I haven't read any of the other books and didn't know it was a series until I had finished the book & looked it up on Goodreads. Nonetheless, I wasn't at all confused and this book could easily be a stand alone.

Falling for Mr. Wrong tells the story of Kelsey and Ross. They meet in a bar and both are instantly attracted to one another. Although it isn't normal for Kelsey or Ross to partake in one night stands

We have all heard that old saying opposites attract. Ross and Kelsey couldn't be more different. Completely different lifestyles. Completely different back grounds. Completely different EVERYTHING.

They meet one night in a bar. Complete strangers. Undeniably attracted to each other. It's supposed to be one night. A one night stand. Ross is recently divorced with 3 kids. He is a very successful businessman. Kelsey is younger than Ross and very single. She is a worl

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me to review an ARC of "Falling For Mr. Wrong" by Inara Scott.

I wasn't really expecting much from this book, so I was surprised to find that I really enjoyed it! The writing was solid, the characters were relatable and wonderfully drawn, and the plot was enough to keep me reading almost straight through - which is something for me these days!

Kelsey - she's pretty awesome! She reminds me of a friend of mine w
I really enjoyed this final story about the Bencher family. I began confusing this series with another sibling-oriented series. Not only had I thought I read the first book about Brit/Tori (apparently I started with book 2 Melissa (sister) and Garth), but I thought I remembered Ross as a real jerk. Once I read Brit/Tori (after this one), I realized he was a very easy going guy and that cleared up a lot of confusion (and made me wonder what on earth other series I thought this was!).

This is the second book that I’ve read by Inara Scott, and it seems a bit absurd and impossible to me that she’s writing two very different genres. The Talents (previously known as the Candidates) was more fantasy-oriented while Falling for Mr. Wrong was more romance and adult. It’s just so weird for me for an author to be writing two very different genres.

But anyway, I adore this book. Everything was just so exciting to me, especially when it became apparent that the protagonists’ a

Falling for Mr. Wrong by Inara Scott is the third story in the Bencher Family series. This the story of Ross Bencher who is a divorced father of three who knows what kind of woman he wants: someone who reliable, safe, and gives his kids security. Kelsey is not what Ross would consider has ideal woman since she is a high-altitude mountaineer.

Kelsey agrees to be temporary nanny to help her friend. She does not realize that this is will be for Ross her one night stand from three years ago. Kelsey
Although this is the third book in this series, and i havent read the first two this book can easily be read as a stand alone with no problems.

The two main characters couldnt be more opposite from each other, Ross is a divorced farther of three children, and he is no risk taker, he and his ex wife are really good friends which i found to be a great switch up to the norm where they are at each others throats throughout the book.

By the nature of the genre, it's likely that once you've read about a dozen contemporary romances, you have discovered all the different plots and 'twists' in romances and all the rest of the books in genre are just more of the same with a few tweaks here and there.

Three years ago Ross Bencher and Kelsey Hanson spent the night together. Both were hurting and wanted to be held and comforted by another person. The next morning they went their separate ways. Now they meet again when Kelsey arrives to babysit his three children. His ex-wife is out of town on business and he needs help. Ross reacts very badly when he sees her and grudgingly agrees that Kelsey can stay until the regular nanny is able to work. He is surprised by what he sees. Kelsey is a beautifu ...more
On the surface Ross and Kelsey are all wrong for each other. Ross wants a stable, reliable, and safe woman. Kelsey is far from that. She hikes deadly mountians and risks her life, no challenge is too big for her. So why can't they seem to keep away from each other when Kelsey takes a temporary position as the nanny for his three kids (I loved all three of them by the end). As they grow closer and closer they both realize that neither one of them really knows what they want out of life. But Kelse ...more

In Falling for Mr. Wrong by Inara Scott, Ross Bencher and Kelsey Hanson meet on the day of his divorce from his wife of 10 years. The chemistry and attraction is immediate, the night that follows is hot, sexy and amazing. They both take this as a fling, a one-night thing, since he is town for business and she is leaving on a trip. With this in mind and knowing that they will never see each other again, they both shared their insecurities and personal stuff that they believed that they could not ...more

This was a sweet romance with a lot of sizzle. Kelsey is our heroine,born and bred into a climbing family, we meet her on the eve of joining an expedition to Annapurna in the Himalayas. She meets Ross Bencher, father of three, still reeling from signing his final divorce papers.

Three years later, Kelsey is on his doorstep as stand in babysitter for his children. If ever a man didn't want to be faced with the best one night stand ever, this was Ross.

My first book by this author and i totally enjoyed it. I didn't read the first two books, but this one was more of a stand alone for me. Lovely story where author presents us with the past and present of the main characters. I like how Kelsey and Ross, grew to know each other more after meeting again a few years back...and their road to overcome their past so they can have what lies ahead. I thought that Rosse's kids played a big part in this novel, it kinda helped mold the story...very sweet ap

Inara Scott has delivered another winner with Falling For Mr. Wrong. Ross's story was a delight to finally hear!

Inara Scott becomes a stronger writer with every book, and this was her strongest to date. The characters in this one were just delightful - Ross's kids captivated me from the first page they were introduced! Ross and Kelsey are a perfect pair - very opposite, yet they had the same core values, which was fun.

I wish that there had been a little more at the end of the book - it got to
