Waking up to a text asking why you stood up your blind date is not the best way to start the day especially when the man in question is lying in bed next to you.

Maybe Dakota Newton shouldn’t have assumed that the gorgeous man with a devastating smile, standing out side of the coffee shop was her date.

She probably… Okay, she definitely shouldn’t have slept with him, regardl

1.5 ⭐️ - All for the effort it took to write it.

Should be titled “The very wrong, hell no man”.

The male MC is psychotic. Yes by the end of the book he was made to look like such a sweet guy who got the girl and lived happy ever after. But it feels wrong on so many levels to paint such a relationship and stamp a happy ending on it like it’s the most natural of circumstances.

This was so bad it’s funny. I’m dead serious when I say that if this was to be taken as a parody of NA romance books

I loved Braxton and Dakota. Aurora Rose Reynolds does it again.

I just recently discovered this author with her Until Him/Her series and I fell in love. Her heroes are so alpha and I love an alpha and Braxton fits the mold.

Braxton and Dakota meet by mistake. She thinking she is on a blind date. He knowing he is not her blind date but going with the flow because as he says: “I’m not some spoiled brat who’s used to getting their way, Dakota. I’m a man who knows what he wants. And when

This is absolute PERFECTION!!! Passionate and oh so enthralling, The Wrong/Right Man completely absorbed me into its pages from that very first scene!
And Braxton... Oh boy, he now wins the crown for the most INTENSE, OTT possessive, protective and OBSESSED of ARR’s Heroes and that is saying a lot with all her OTT Alphas goodness!!! ADORED. EVERY. WORD!!!

He smiles down at me like he knows exactly what I’m thinking. “ I know where you live and where you work, Dakota.”
“Why does that sound like a threat, Braxton?”
He brushes his lips across mine. “Because it is.”

Whenever I’m in a mood for a sweet and steamy read with a hot and swoony alpha hero, Aurora is my go to author. I’m in love with her writing style. Even though you know what’s going to happen next, you still don’t wanna out it down. I read this one i
Where to start with this one, I know I've read plenty of books where the main hero has stalker tendencies and I've enjoyed them , but that's because of how the author framed events and the characters. Sadly here that was so not the case. Braxton just comes of as a guy Dakota should RUN from as fast as she can. He is not portrayed in a way where your protective brother would be giving him the thumbs up.

The attraction and spark I would have expected from characters in a Reynolds' book just weren't

I deleted my review because I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this book
The premise was good and executed fairly well but the H was way too intense for me especially as we didn't know the reasons behind his behavior until later in the book. I expect a possessive, protective Alpha male from this author and I usually revel in her delivery of such but this H was overbearing, controlling and acted like a creepy stalker. We do find out that he had information that she was in danger

I can always count on this author for a hot, delicious, alpha male who knows no boundaries. And boy oh boy did Braxton live up to my expectations. No boundary was left uncrossed by this hot alpha! I was laughing my ass off at some of the antics he pulled.

Here’s what I loved:
If you’re an ARR fan, you will absolutely love the jealous possessive hero of the story. He does whatever it takes to not only get his girl, but to keep her secure. A man after my own heart.
The cover is shit hot!!

Right or wrong ⭐️

Each time I review a book by ARR I say the same thing. She’s the one who gives me that OTT alpha hero, caveman-style, highly protective and unapologetic in his crazy domineering way. That’s why I always one-click anything she publishes.

Unfortunately, with The Wrong/Right Man she didn’t manage to get more than three stars from me. If I were completely honest, my rating would be closer to two stars, but it’s ARR and I can’t do that.

This amazing and highly entertaining story had everything I've come to love about ARR's books: a hot OTT possesive and protective Alpha, a super sweet and feisty heroine and sizzling hot insta-chemistry between the main characters that was absolutely palpable on every single page. Let me tell you that I was intrigued by the blurb from the first moment it has been revealed. I seriously couldn't wait to get my hands on this story.

This is the over the top, possessive alpha I have been looking for for the last few weeks. I have had such a craving for a hero like Braxton that the whole time I was reading this I did it with a weird sappy smile on my face. I knew Aurora has the ability to write those heroes and I even redownloaded Until November to reread when I couldn’t find anything that lived up to what I was craving when this one landed on my kindle.

This is such a good book.
I get that it is unrealistic and in real life this wouldn't be normal behaviour but in this romance world I liked it.
It is insta but also isn't as the heroine calls him out on his possessive behaviour.
The premise as described in the blurb is great.
There is no other woman drama or information about his past relationships.
There is small other man drama in form of an ex who cheated on her, she's not interested but there is some talk of their past relationship and some possi

I’m horrified that many women readers like this book. This zero, stole her information, let himself into her apartment WITHOUT her permission. He read her texts messages, (once again without her knowing) called her brother (Brother wasn’t that good either if he didn’t cared that a man who basically didn’t know his sister was stalking her) put a TRACKING DEVICE on her ass (not really on her ass but you get my point) if you guessed again WITHOUT HER KNOWING then good for you (until she figured tha ...more

First of all - sexy cover right there. Very lickable!

It has been a while since I have read an ARR story, and it was great do delve back into her worlds.

Dakota and Brax's story is soooo steamy *fanning myself*. I mean, don't we wish all blind dates would work out as well as Dakota's.

Now, don't get me wrong, I think Brax is sexy AF, but boy did I have my issues with him.

I know the alpha guys can be a bit full on, and I don't worry about their actions in books,

This is the first ARR book that I haven’t been crazy about in a while. While I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted to, I can say that I was entertained the entire time.

She usually writes over the top alpha men and she didn’t hold back with Braxton. I think he was her most alpha yet. He was so unapologetically alpha and possessive. I loved reading about him dominating over the pages! It goes without saying that if you don’t like your heroes like that, then don’t pick this up. I love it when a man

The Wrong/Right Man is a sweet and sexy story about a chance meeting and an undeniable attraction. Braxton and Dakota’s story had heat and humor and a dash of suspense, making it an entertaining and engaging read.

I really enjoyed the characters and the way they interacted with each other. Braxton and Dakota had sizzling hot chemistry from the moment they met, and their back and forth banter made for some great scenes. Braxton was so over the top in the beginning, but I loved how obsessed and po

Aurora writes what I love about reading in romance. Her male leads are over-protective and love fiercely with everything they have.

A new start and a new job awaits Dakota when she heads to Seattle. A broken engagement to the man she’d spend forever with is left behind.

What she didn’t expect was to run straight into forever with him. A blind date and a case of mistaken identity leads her to forever.

When Braxton spots Dakota he doesn’t even hesitate to be the man she thought she was supposed to

I feel this was not Aurora's best work in my honest opinion.
Mindy Lou's Book Review
The only thing holding this one back from being a favorite was the heroine's constant pushing away. I love a possessive hero but if the heroine won't let him be possessive, that takes the fun away for me. They spent way too long away from each other to feel like I got any couple time with these two. I still liked it, I just wanted more of them together. Much more.

It’s a no from me, folks.

If you’re looking for the following, be sure to check this book out:
-an overly controlling (to the point of scary) hero
-a heroine that lacks a spine
-creep factor 1000000%
-a man that steals all your information on your phone and breaks into your house. But don’t worry, he’s sexy so we have to forgive him. Men will be men, amiright??

The fact that no-one thinks this behaviour is wrong in the book is just scary. I’m all for dark romance, but sis, this ain’t it.

If you love Reynolds’ bossy, charming, and over the top alphas, you will love this book! I was completely pulled into Braxton and Dakota’s story. This fast paced, fun, and exciting story was exactly what I was in the mood for.

From the first page, I was intrigued. From the first meeting between these two, I was obsessed. The instant attraction, undeniable chemistry, the push and pull, it was seriously hot. I loved getting wrapped in their relationship. Then Reynolds gives us some mystery and susp

“I don’t think I’m falling in love with you.” His eyes stay locked with mine as his thumb glides over my jaw. “I am in love with you.”
“How do you know?”
“How do you know you need to breathe?” he asks in return, and tears start to fill my eyes. “Loving you isn’t something I think about. It’s something that has happened without me thinking about it and it is as natural to me as taking my next breath.”
“The moment I saw you, I wanted you.”
My eyes narrow on his. “The moment you saw me, you want me, so you pretended to be someone you’re not?”
Yeah? Just yeah?
“I can’t believe this.” I rub my hands down my face, wondering how I ended up in this situation.
“Don’t call me that,” I hiss, dropping my hands away to glare at him. “I don’t even know you.”
“You know me,” he counters, glancing at the bed before looking me in the eye. “We definitely know each other.”

“We’re not over.”
“There is no we. I don’t even know who you are.”
“You will.”
