ENOUGH of the FLUFF. A picture to add to this fact:
For all the reasons that everyone who has read this book. Those are the exact reasons why I didn’t like it. 2.5 awkward stars.
It was funny yes but to the point where I thought it was just too cheesy moments.

Even though this is another what happens in Las Vegas stays in Vegas type of story, the author gave us a unique and entertaining book. The male lead is sweet and really makes an effort to treat a girl right.
This book is fun and sexy and even though it was a quick read, it held m ...more

I had a really good time reading this story. From start to finish, Cathryn Fox had me giggling, had a huge smile on my face and made me want to go to Vegas to see what happens if I stand in the elevator half-naked and someone I think I know walks in.
Andi and Ryan kicked up the fun meter in Betting on the Wrong Brother. Right from the opening scene in the elevator, you knew that there was no way you weren’t going to laugh your way through this ...more
What a cute and relatively short read. To be honest, I was totally expecting this to be cheesy and flat out eye rolling, but I was pleasantly surprised that the storyline and even the characters didn’t bother me like I thought they would, by reading the blurb.
Andi is a romance writer at a convention in Vegas. She gets stuck in an elevator (why do always think of Aerosmith) and while stuck, decides to make the best of the situation by changing into her next outfit so she isn ...more
This was light and fun. It had me giggling throughout the story and falling fot Ryan. The characters were fun and relatable. I do wish we found out more about that room. That would have probably added a whole other dimension.
Betting on the Wrong Brother is about a romance book writer (very fitting) Andrea Palmer, who is attending a Romance Book Writer convention in Las Vegas, and a horror book writer, Ryan Grayson who is also in Las Vegas doing research for a book he wants to write. I think this is one of my new favorites that Cathryn Fox has written. It was hysterical, th ...more
Betting on the Wrong Brother is a cute, fast paced romance featuring mistaken identity, sizzling chemistry, fate and finding your soulmate.
The third person narrative aids the numerous plot threads stemming from Andi and Ryan's history, although in a completely unexpected way. You see Andi is the same age as Ryan's younger brother and had a HUGE crush on him as a teen only to have him break her heart. Andi was an awkward, frumpy teen resulting in self-esteem issues years later.
A case of mist ...more
This book was so much fun. Who doesn’t love a what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas story and mix in some mistaken identify, a one week affair and all things romance author conventions and you get a great way to spend an afternoon.

This was a pretty easy read, it was light and gave me a few giggles throughout. The premise was good but I felt like the story was rushed in parts especially the ending.
I would have liked to have heard about Andi and Nolan meeting again and how that went. I felt there were a few things that could have been better developed, that and the ending being the main ones.

So horror writer Ryan has found himself at a romance readers’ convention and he’s found himself face to face with a nearly naked woman in the elevator. Her funny, snarky personality interests him almost as much as her physical attributes do but he doesn’t need the complication a woman would bring him. Plus she seems to dislike him for some reason. Andi ...more

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Bare feet, some naked or disrobed legs. Synopsis sounds like fun.
