Three months ago, graphic designer Vanessa Hewitt slept with the ridiculously hot guy she met after nearly falling to her death while stargazing on a bridge. The adrenaline-fueled night of we’ll-never-see-each-other-again sex fulfilled every fantasy, but with her best friend’s wedding on the horizon, Vanessa can’t stop thinking about what would happen if her sexy stranger passed through town again.
Haunted by his time in Afghanistan, soldier John Campbell returns to his hometown just long enough to help plan an engagement party for his sister. When he realizes her best friend is the sweet one-night stand he's been fantasizing about for months, he’ll do anything to have her again…though getting trapped together in a storeroom wasn’t quite what he had in mind.
Vanessa is in hell. Or is it heaven? Because with every touch, their forbidden connection grows, until kissing Mr. Wrong starts feeling more like kissing Mr. Right...
This is my second Kerri Carpenter novel. The first one, Flirting With the Competition, was a super cute story, and another book in the Entangled Lovestruck imprint. I love that imprint, and with good reason, and Kissing Mr. Wrong was definitely worth the read.
The story starts with the first encounter Vanessa and John have together, before they know who the other is. It's super romantic how they meet (he thinks she needs saved, then she really does need saved), and then it gets super steamy. But then John's gone, he had to leave the very next day, and neither one even know if they'll ever see each other again. And it's fine... at first. They realize, however, how much they do want to meet again. And when they do, and realize he's her best friend's brother, Vanessa knows he's off limits. Yet, what they have is palpable. Undeniable. Can they find a way to meet in the middle and get past the obstacles?
Kissing Mr. Wrong was absolutely right! It was a charming tale, one that my heart couldn't let go. It's an emotional journey, one that pulls you in from the start, then keeps becoming more honest and real. I loved the chemistry between Vanessa and John. And I can't wait to see what's net for Kerri Carpenter!
