A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…
Who needs Mr. Right when you can have the perfect Mr. Wrong?
Ryder Diamond-the town’s golden boy-doesn’t have time for taking chances, let alone love. Against his better judgment, he lets his buddies set him up on a blind date with a girl who’s only passing through town. But temporary or not, Whitney James sets fire to desires he can’t control.
Before they know it, Ryder and Whitney are in a supply closet, drowning in lust. She’s only in town for the summer-what better way to spend it than in the arms of Mr. Perfect? Except, she’s wild and free, and he’s Mr. Stability. Which means he may as well be Mr. Wrong.
And her new job? It’s with Ryder’s sister.
Sex and the inability to keep their hands off each other are the only things they have in common. But this little hook-up has “disaster” written all over it…and the only way Ryder can save his reputation is by avoiding the sweet little firecracker who could ruin it all.

If you’re looking for a quick and sexy read, then this might just be for you. Ryder is a man with a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders – he runs his own construction business and his family founded the town of Diamond. He feels he has a reputation to maintain and protect and he wants to do what’s best for the people of his town. He also wants to avoid making another mistake like he did when he was young and got involved with the wrong woman. The only trouble is, no matter how interested the local women seem in him, Ryder just is interested back. Mostly because they want to marry his name rather than him.
Until he meets Whitney, a woman who is just passing through and has absolutely no intention of turning respectable. Ever since the death of her sister, Whitney has chosen to live for tomorrow, and that means she never stays anywhere for long. However, Diamond has other plans for her, while she mostly has dirty plans for Ryder.
I really enjoyed this one. It’s fast and fun and full of heat. I don’t tend to like pushy lovers in romance, but the way Whitney gets to Ryder is never pushy. She challenges and teases him, determined to uncover his naughty side, the one he hides so well when he’s out in public. I found Ryder’s attempts to keep things friendly between them kind of cute, if forever doomed. He’s a guy who values control, even though he has so much fun when he loses it. I loved how the pair of them sparked off one another – and of course the chemistry between them is scorching.
Despite the potential angst moments dealing with grief and heavy expectations, this is fairly light and isn’t emotionally demanding. It’s sexy and engaging and fun to read, opposites attracting in the best possible way. Although this is my first read from this series, I very much doubt it’ll be my last.
