I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


The first time I met Evie Harper, she threw a cream pie at my face. I actually hadn’t met her, just saw her. It was more like she hated everything I stood for and showed me her opinion with an airborne cream pie. Yes, she smacked me front and center on my face. The second time I saw Evie, I didn’t realize she was the cream-pie-throwing bandit, and she took my breath away in a flowing red gown at a gala.
Of course I couldn’t resist her looks, so I asked her to dance. She called me a schmuck and stalked off.
My own Cinderella ran away from me. I shouldn’t have chased her down. We were all wrong for each other. But her fire red hair and feisty personality reeled me in, and I was hooked. Chicago’s most renowned playboy was finally falling head over loafers. At least it felt that way because she was like no other woman I’d met before . . . Evie was special . . .
Problem was I had trust issues when it came to women. Freud would’ve probably said it was my mother’s doing. Somehow Evie made me believe in her . . . trust her . . .
Big damn mistake!
One I hope I won’t live to regret . . .
But then again how could someone so wrong for me turn out to be so damn perfect?

If you’re looking for a sweet, Contemporary Romance, Mr. All Wrong might be it. It started out as an Insta-Love story and it later skirted the boundary of a HEA daytime soap opera. Don’t get me wrong, years ago I lived for my General Hospital drama filled afternoons and I know quite a few people who still love a little OTT stories. While it had a few humorous scenes in it there was a more serious subject matter involved and I loved how it was woven into the story line. It might just be me, others probably really like it, but I’m not a fan of the “what a coincidence” story line and this might have skewed my opinion a little bit. There was one redeeming factor that made me really like the story and it was Colton, the main H, despite my aforementioned issues.

Colton Mathis was born into one of the wealthiest families in America. His father sacrificed his dreams of a political career to raise him, as a single father, after Colt’s mother abandoned both of them when he was five. He always felt it was just easier to go along with his father’s plans for him and let him run his life, out of a need to please him and avoid conflict. He knew how to lay on the guilt to get what he wanted from Colt.

“Boy, I could have been president” or “boy sometimes I wondered why I didn’t just give you up, find a new wife and conquer my dreams.”

 Now thirty-five, Colton’s the Governor of Illinois and his father wants him to run for the President of the United States, something he doesn’t want to do, but feels it’s his obligation. Due to his upbringing and childhood issues he hasn’t been in a committed relationship and he feels they don’t exist and has no need to for one. While at a ribbon cutting ceremony he’s thrown a cream pie in the face by a very attractive red-haired protester.

Evie is later recognized by the Governor of Illinois as the pie-throwing bandit at a Veteran Affairs Gala she accompanied her grandfather to. When he uses his resources to figure out who she is he decides he wants to get to know her better and is pleasantly surprised he likes her as much as he does. Evie has some secrets she’s hiding and has trust issues, too. After her single mother abandoned her, to be raised by her grandfather, she’s a little wary of relationships, too. When she begins to confide in Colt and confesses some of her secrets he surprises her by not heading for the hills. The more time they spend together, and begin to trust each other, the harder some secrets are to keep quiet.

When Evie discovers something by accident she has to promise not to reveal it to him, a long kept secret that can harm the people she loves. But it might be too much for him to forgive when the truth comes out, as it inevitably will, and she proves his belief that he can’t trust women. Not a single one.

He’s not your average governor. And she’s definitely not a traditional first lady.

“What’s going on in that pretty little head of yours?” he asks and presses his nose to mine briefly causing my breath to hitch before he pulls away.

“Your suit reminds me that you are the governor,” I say and I know it sounds weird, but somehow in my head on the last few dates, I tried to convince myself that he was just a regular guy.

He chuckles, and again I wish I knew the sound of his laughter. “I’m still the same guy whether I’m in a suit and tie or a pair of jeans,” he replies. I want to tell him that he looks hot as sin in his suit but something tells me that his ego is inflated enough.

“Isn’t the governor’s mansion in Springfield? Why are you always in Chicago?” I ask, knowing this because I also teach history and the governor’s mansion has been in use since 1855.

“Yes, the governor’s mansion is in Springfield, and I do occupy it in a way, but I hate it there. It’s big and empty. I much prefer my apartment here in the city. Truth is since I met you I’ve been spending more time in Chicago than I have in Springfield,” he says, and his blue eyes blaze as he makes the admission. My chest turns warm and saliva pools in the back of my throat. Fuck! I am so turned on by him.

“Oh,” is the only word I can formulate right now.

He walks toward me at such a slow pace, and I feel like someone has pressed a slow-motion button. I take a large gulp as he closes the distance between us. He pushes a stray strand of hair off my face. “I’ve been thinking about kissing the hell out of you all day,” he says. My knees buckle, at least they feel like they do because the next thing I know his lips are on mine, hot and wanting. He kisses softly at first before his tongue begs entrance into my mouth. His taste is as intoxicating as I remembered. Our lips meshed together in a way that tells me, we fit. This is more than perfect. This kiss is everything.
