Review: Mr. All Wrong by R.C. Stephens


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

R.C. Stephens's Mr. All Wrong is, to borrow Matthew McConaughey's iconic phrase, "alright, alright, alright!" With a good bit of angst, some mystery and intrigue, and a whole lot of romance, this standalone, which has a hint of a promise for a spin-off for one of the peripheral characters, was a pleasurable read. Told from the dual viewpoints of the main characters, Colton Mathis and Evie Harper, this was a love story that held a couple of surprises in terms of the direction it took. If you read the synopsis for it, it seems to be a lighthearted read, but Colt is a man who has issues when it comes to his controlling father and the abandonment of his mother in particular and with women in general. There are also Evie's own realities, but I'll save those for you to uncover when you start reading this novel.

Colt and Evie have an unforgettable meet-cute, and when they meet again, it's as if fate is telling them that their paths were, indeed, meant to cross. The connection between them was palpable, and I loved how they were somewhat unsure if becoming involved with one another was a good idea, yet took their chances nonetheless. It wasn't mere curiosity for them either. There was something more from the very beginning. But Colt's issues aren't the kind that can easily be brushed aside, and when Evie notices something that has her digging deeper, not just into someone connected to her past, but soon, into the person in her present that could very well be her future. When the dirty and dark truth comes to light, will there be enough love and trust left for Colt and Evie to build on?

I loved this book, but I do admit that there was one teeny part of it that had me raising an eyebrow in disbelief. Maybe Evie is far more perceptive than most people for her to notice one thing and have it pique her curiosity about another thing. Of course, this was what tied everything together AND had all the lies slowly begin to unravel. Stephens paced this book quite well, and once again, she's left me impressed, which has been the case ever since I discovered her writing last year. Mr. All Wrong was a thoroughly satisfying read, and it has me quite curious as to what awaits readers in the suspected follow-up, Mr. So Wrong. If you've never read anything by R.C. Stephens before, you certainly won't go all wrong by picking up this latest release of hers, which I'm easily giving 4.5 stars to. ♥
