it was amazing

Get addicted to bad boys thanks to Brazen...

With a matchmaking mama and a very set idea about what kind of man she needs to marry, Elle Walser isn't usually the seducer type. But she's set her sights on her handsome, successful boss and trussed up like a Thanksgiving turkey in ruffled lingerie she crawls into his bed planning to do just that. Just when things get hot she realizes that the man in her boss' bed isn't the one she came there for and gets a mental cold shower of epic proportions.

Gabe Schultz is a man of many talents, yet all Elle sees is his bad boy tattoos. She might have accidentally seduced the wrong Schultz brother but she's in for another surprise as he attempts to make the sexual chemistry the two shared into something more. If only he'd take the hint from her snobbish rebuffs and leave her to recover from her mortification.

Right off the bat I hated Elle. She acted like Gabe wasn't good enough for her and that kind of girl just sets my teeth on edge. But I was really interested to see where the story went and kept reading only to realize as it was almost at an end that somewhere along the journey she had completely lost that without me noticing. Kudos to Robert for pulling off such a subtle and organic change I could believe in it. Gabe may end up being one of my favorite romance heroes ever. I feel really stupid even writing this but he's a lot like the man I'm happily married to and actually a lot like me at the same time so I found him both relatable and attractive. Once Elle's snobbery faded there was a part of her that was actually very relatable too. If you relate to a heroine with an overbearing, this-is-the-way-it-is type of family with big expectations you'll grow to empathize with her.

While there were some elements of the story I found a little random and over-the-top you have to remember this is a category romance title which means those kind of things are to be expected. Gabe owning a bunch of night clubs and running a tattoo shop felt a little bit much when his past is considered though it gets explained away quickly at some point. I couldn't help but be pleased though, that Robert chose to set the story in Spokane (one of the reasons I related to Gabe) versus a stereotypical choice like Seattle.

What you really want to know though is just how Brazen this one gets right? lol As a reader I kind of prefer closed-door love scenes but when I want to read them in detail they better be really darned good. WRONG BED, RIGHT GUY blew (no pun intended) me away with how good they were. If you want some lip-biting, eye-popping, clutching-your-blanket, left-needing-a-cold-shower love scenes this is your book. I will never look at a storage closet the same way again. Just sayin'. That's just my favorite of the bunch... how Robert managed to pack several in without it feeling gratuitious I don't know but I'll be reading anything she puts out in the Brazen imprint after this.

If you need a rainy day read, or maybe one for an afternoon poolside I can't recommend WRONG BED, RIGHT GUY enough for sheer overall enjoyability. If you love bad boy heroes with heart, heroines who need a little saving from themselves, and a steamy smut overload in a story short enough to read in an afternoon you'll love it!
