Welcome to the Author’s Spotlight Tour for Inara Scott’s Falling for Mr. Wrong
Below you will find all relevant information regarding Falling for Mr. Wrong, along with a guest post by author Inara Scott. Please enjoy the excerpt provided. Thank you for stopping by!
If you’re anything like me, you go through stages in your reading. These stages can be genre or author. For example, when I started reading romance again after a many year hiatus, I read all historicals. I stared with my old favorites and re-read Johanna Lindsey and Jude Deveraux, then moved on to Mary Balogh, Eloisa James, and Julia Quinn.
Then, somehow or another, my friend and critique partner Susan Sey got me started reading contemporary romances. I had never read them before and was skeptical. But she assured me if I tried just one book by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I’d be hooked. She was totally right. I gobbled down SEPs list, then Jenny Crusie, and then countless Harlequin authors (this was before Entangled came to be!).
Lately, I’ve been enjoying novellas. I inhaled the new Entangled Bliss anthology Stranded with a Hero, which I picked up because I adore Cindi Madsen and Roxanne Snopek’s writing, but also fell in love with Karen Erickson and Colleen Kwan’s wonderfully romantic styles. I also got to read an advance copy of Falling for the CEO, by Audra North, which was a darling Cinderella story and the perfect holiday happily ever after.
So, what are you reading these days? Any particular author or genre, or a little bit of everything?
Title: Falling for Mr. Wrong
Author: Inara Scott
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: November 11th, 2013
Publisher: Entangled ~ Indulgence
Looking for Mrs. Right…
Single father of three, Ross Bencher, knows the kind of woman he wants: someone predictable, reliable, and safe, who can give his kids the security they deserve. Someone entirely different from high-altitude mountaineer Kelsey. Kelsey bewitches him with her long legs and wild passion and is about as far from his ideal as a woman can get, but try telling that to his body. Or his heart…
Falling for Mr. Wrong…
When Kelsey agreed to fill in as a temporary nanny for her best friend’s agency before a big climbing expedition, she had no idea she’d be working for drop-dead sexy Ross Bencher, a man she can’t seem to keep her hands off. She knows if she wants to bring herself—and her father—back alive from the Himalayan Mountains, she can’t afford second-guessing, attachments, or distractions. But Ross’s blue eyes and strong hands leave her gasping…and questioning everything she’s ever known about love…
Ross is in town for business when he notices Kelsey. Not one for having one-night stands he’s feeling down over his recent divorce and believes that losing himself in the arms of a beautiful woman is just what he needs.
Kelsey is nervous about her latest trip and is in the mood for an adventure. Looking at Ross from across the room, she knows a night spent with the handsome hunk of male would settle her nerves.
What neither of them was counting on was on their instant connection or seeing each other ever again.
Inara Scott did a wonderful job with this story. I loved the concept behind it and how it was all brought together in a sweet, funny yet sensual story where opposites attract and the deep connection between the characters overrides everything else.
I loved Ross. I enjoyed both his fatherly side and his passionate one. When he unleashed his lust for Kelsey he really let go and went with it. He denied, retreated and stepped up to the challenge all within a couple of pages. It truly made for an enjoyable read.
Kelsey was a great character too. I enjoyed her determination when so many tried to derail her. In the end, she was true to herself and her feelings and I admired her for that. She was funny, caring and straight-forward. She gave as good as she got and that just made her pairing with Ross that much more interesting.
The secondary characters introduced in the story were great too. I enjoyed Ross and Kelsey’s interactions with them, especially the kids. I loved that the author included them throughout the story and didn’t just use them as props. They engaged the main characters and even brought out another side of them that would have been otherwise hidden from the reader.
Falling for Mr. Wrong is the third book in the Bencher Family series, but it can certainly be read as a stand alone. The other two titles in the series, Rules of Negotiation and The Boss’s Fake Fiancee, are already on my TBR shelf as we speak.
All in all, a sweet romantic read with emotional undertones, explosive chemistry and intriguing characters that compelled the reader to cheer them on into achieving the happily ever after they so deserved.
I received this title from the publisher in exchange of my honest opinion.
Kelsey swayed. His words sent heat racing through her body, flushing her face and sending a rush of warm honey between her legs. “We decided to forgot about that night, remember? It never happened.”
He finally let go of her of her hand, but instead of stepping away he moved even closer, raising his hand to brush her hair back behind her shoulder and caressing the soft skin along her collarbone. “That’s what I keep telling myself. This is all wrong. You’re all wrong.”
Alarm bells sounded in her head, but they were strangely incapable of forcing motion into her legs. “That’s right,” she heard herself say, as if from some great distance. “Exactly right.”
“I have three kids,” he continued, his eyes pinned on the hollow at base of her throat. “If I’m going to be with someone she needs to be boring. Reliable. Predictable.”
“You have three kids,” she agreed, angling her head back slightly and closing her eyes. He cupped the back of her neck in his palm, and she felt his lips brush lightly, like the wings of a butterfly, against her neck. “You live a life I can barely imagine. I couldn’t invent someone who would be less compatible with me.”
The touch was too sweet, too familiar. Her nipples hardened in an instant. How was it possible to want someone so much, so quickly?
“Damn it, Kelsey,” he continued, breathing against her skin as he kissed her again, this time just below her ear. “Why do you do this to me? Why can’t I walk away from you?”
