Title: Finding Mr. Wrong
Authors: A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm
Release Date: February 20, 2017
Here’s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.
The phrase “trust me” should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20.
So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn’t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten―and not around my ankles.
Before I knew what was happening, I’d signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn’t be so bad.
I’ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble.
She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.
A.M. Madden and Joanne Schwehm prove to be an inimitable writing duo with their first co-authored novel, Finding Mr. Wrong. Sexy, fun and full of feels, Jude and Brea’s story is romantic comedy gold and the kind of book that leaves you grinning and begging for more. From the first page to the last I was hooked on the colorful personalities and fresh, humorous writing that filled the pages. Jude and Brea’s seemingly opposite personalities led to a seriously addictive push and pull that manifested itself in plenty of delicious sexual tension and hilariously witty banter. This couple shared a sizzling chemistry that begged to be explored along with something deeper and unspoken that kept me undeniably hooked on their unique journey. Madden and Schwehm expertly balanced all of the humor and steam with plenty of heart and a few gut-wrenching moments that ensured my total investment in Jude and Brae’s story.
“Seriously, he is one fine hunk of man, and you need to climb him like a tree.”
Jude was pretty much book boyfriend perfection. Even when he was being cocky, arrogant and purposely frustrating he was somehow still funny, smart and downright dreamy. I enjoyed watching him unravel as he spent time with Brae and loved experiencing his relationships with his best friends. Madden and Schwehm certainly knew what they were doing when it came to the sexy Swede. Brae was equally unforgettable and I had so much fun getting to know the feisty, slightly awkward and adorably quirky heroine. Her strange habits made me chuckle while her selflessness and dedication to helping her family warmed my heart. Effortlessly stealing my heart, Brae and Jude made for an unlikely and yet perfectly compatible pair. They challenged one another, supported each other and together they not only revealed the truth depth of the other’s character but grew into better versions of themselves.
“There he was in all his Swedish glory. God love a Swede. If I had a Swedish flag, I’d wave it with pride. If I knew his parents’ address, I’d send them a thank you card.”
Madden and Schwehm also had me falling in love with each of the secondary characters that rounded out Jude and Brae’s world. They added levity and love to the novel and left me anxious to read their stories. Finding Mr. Wrong was perfectly paced to be devoured. I found myself flying through this book, desperate for more of Madden and Schwehm’s enchanting storytelling. I absolutely adored the premise – a random couple thrown together for six romantic weeks on an island and you just know there’s going to be plenty of tension and drama. Madden and Schwehm didn’t disappoint, delivering plenty of heat, a few hilarious antics and some seriously adorable heartfelt moments that left me absolutely swooning. Despite this being their first novel together, the authors worked seamlessly. Finding Mr. Wrong flowed smoothly, the voices of the characters distinct but consistent and the writing style utterly captivating. Finding Mr. Wrong is definitely a win for Madden and Schwehm and an absolute must read for romantic comedy fans!
