Chasing Mrs. Right (A Come Undone Novel) by Katee Robert
It was only supposed to last one night…
Roxanne Stokes doesn't believe in love. She does, however, believe in the sexy-as-sin stranger who literally knocks her off her feet in front of a nightclub. The chemistry sparking between them takes her breath away, and she'll do anything to ease the pain in his eyes…until she realizes the handsome stranger is her best friend's older brother who's just come home from war.
Ian Walser had no idea the gorgeous woman he slept with the night of his homecoming party was his little sister's best friend—or that she'd be gone before morning. Roxanne's touch soothes him in a way nothing else can, and he's not ready to walk away from that yet. Not when spending time with her gave Ian a glimpse of everything he's ever wanted.
When his sister unwittingly pushes them together, he sees his chance. But convincing a woman who doesn't believe in love that she's his Mrs. Right might be harder than any mission Ian's undertaken. Good thing this soldier likes a challenge…

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ian and Roxanne have serious issues and amazingly combustible chemistry. Chemistry wins, so their relationship starts with a one-night stand. Can these two people get past their respective damage to turn something mega-hot into something real? Roxanne is afraid to commit because all men leave, and Ian suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder after two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. They should both be too messed up to make this work, especially since his family members are continually working against them. But Roxanne and Ian want and need each other too much not to keep trying.

Verdict The sex-into-love trope makes for a sizzling-hot story from the very first page. Having the woman as the commitment-phobe instead of the guy is a nice reversal. Readers who enjoy sex-first, love-second stories, or who read the first book in the series, Wrong Bed, Right Guy, will enjoy this one, too.—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.

Loved thisl! Ian is a sexy but troubled soldier who sets his sights on his sister's best friend. If you read Wrong Bed Right Guy, you will remember these characters from Gabe and Elle's book. It was alot of fun to see Gabe and Elle again too! Hot and sexy. Recommend this one to anybody that loves steamy romance and military heroes.

Fabulous! Loved her debut, loved this one! Ian was so hot and sexily damaged. Beautiful story. Can't wait for Nathan's story!

I received this book on Tuesday and finished it today. It's a quick read and one you don't want to put down. When thinking about a way to describe this book, I would say that it is a perfect mix between fantasy and reality. Ian and Roxanne have that connection that just is and I found myself anxious for them to work through their issues. Both characters are very easy to relate to, whether that be with family issues, relationship issues, abandonment, etc. I would say the only thing I was hesitant about with this book was how quickly they professed their love to one another. It actually surprised me, but it also showed the growth and development of Roxanne. The chemistry between Ian and Roxanne was spot on! A great read! Can't wait to see what happens with Nathan...

Chasing Mrs. Right is a quick read, or maybe I liked it so much I read it fast.  Ian just got back from his second tour in Afghanistan and his family has a welcome party all planned and ready for him. Problem? Ian has PTSD and a crowed club is the last place he wants to be in.  Roxanne had a terrible day at the office and having to go to a party to welcome her best friend's brother isn't on the top of her To-Do list.  But then, this hot stranger runs over her and her night may not be that bad after all... Ian and Rox send the sparks flying and the fire going since the moment they set eyes (and other body parts) in each other. They are intense, they're scared and they still manage to have some fun and teasing conversations! “I get it—the whole sweating it out thing. I do yoga. Concentrating on breathing, and perfecting and holding the poses, actually takes a lot more effort than you’d think. It’s my happy place.” “Yeah, I’ve heard it’s great for that. I’m not exactly a yoga guy though.” “What? You mean you don’t want to work on your flexibility? I’m so disappointed.” His grin was quick and wicked. “The advantage to being the guy is that I don’t have to be as flexible as my partner does.” (I'll let you guys go wild with your imagination for a bit.... ok moving on!) Chasing Mrs. Righ is the second installment of the Come Undone series, but you don't have to read them in order to understand. Roxanne doesn't believe in love, so anything more than a couple of nights of fun  is completely out of question. But when she sees Ian and she feels him relax under her touch she can't help but want to be there for him. Ian knows he's too mess up to go into a relationship but he needs Rox more than anything right now. I really loved the relationship between them. It's fast, it's physical and it's emotional. Really it has everything. While Ian's need for Roxanne is easier to see and probably more basic, Rozanne's need for Ian is as strong and as important. I wished there was more to Ian's problems, but Roxanne's were really well developed and make it up. What I really, really loved about this though was Ian's reaction to that need. I don't want to spoil anything but sometimes, people get so dependable of another person is just not healthy and he sees that. And that's probably my favorite part. And also the one I kinda hated... but hey, we all love some hate - love relationship! Oh! lets not forget about the steamy steamy scenes. They're perfect and so well written. You don't want to read this on the bus... really, just don't! Another thing were the secondary characters. While the wasn't a lot to them, because they get their own stories, they all give a little push to the main characters in the right direction. And the end... it's just perfect and cute and awesome. The grand gesture is so lovely and in tune with each other that it had me smiling like a fool! Chasing Mrs. Right is quick intense read that I couldn't put down. The romance, sexy times and some funny parts complement each other so well! And the entire book is written beautifully. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to read the other two books in the series. I'm really interested in Nathan's story... he sounds like he could really use some love!

A chance meeting between Ian and Roxanne leads to a night of passion... Ian is back from his second tour in Afghanistan. He barely gets off the plane and he is bombarded by a welcome home party from his baby sister. Ian finds himself unable to handle it and flees the scene. Roxanne is not interested in love or a boyfriend, or commitments. They lead to bad things. She has been taught well to rely on no-one but herself. She has erected a bulletproof wall around her heart. Too bad she meets a straight shooter who doesn't play fair. They have combustible chemistry. Roxanne could give in and let him in, but at what cost? Ian could fall in love, but would he ever be whole again, and be enough to be truly wanted? This story shows us two unlikely lovers who aren't looking for love, but cupid struck them both and fate has other plans for them. This was a great second story for this series, the first book being [book:Wrong Bed, Right Guy|15762975]. Great chemistry, a quick and feisty hot read. 4 Erotic Romance Stars.

## Another great read by Ms. Robert. I enjoyed Gabe & Elle's story (even though I didn't care for Elle), so I gave this one a try. I'm glad I did. The beginning was so amazing, with the flirting and teasing. Really sexy. Then the heroine had a brain fart and became a witch for about 3 chapters, but did finally redeem herself. And the hero.....Holy Moly he was hot. Mmmmm, Ms. Robert knows how to write heroes! Between Gabe and Ian, I'm still fanning myself. She just needs to work on her heroines. I'm looking forward to Nathan's story.

This was an OK read but nothing more. It was, above all, predictable. Much of the book is spent with her denying her feelings and obsessed with her issues of abandonment, whereas the guy has to go out of his way to romance her and pamper her despite his own PTSD. And when she finally accepts her feelings, then his issues surface and bababoom, back to basis until all is forgiven and they find their happily ever after. There was little character development and no solid plot. It was disappointing because I had really liked Elle and Gabe story in 'Wrong bed, right guy'.

Good Book! Entangled Publishing provided this book free of charge in exchange for a book review. This is the first book I have read from author Katee Robert and it definitely won't be the last. I enjoyed this book very much. The characters were real and easily identifiable with the world we live in. I especially liked Ian, the main male character. His story was extremely well written and developed. The author expressed his emotions, doubts and fears with palpable realism. I did like Roxanne, the main female character, especially when her "inner voice" spoke to her during various predicaments. However, I would have liked a little more detail on her upbringing and prior relationships. Elle, Roxanne's best friend and Ian's sister was a great secondary character. She added a lot connection within the storyline. I will read more from this author.

I thought this was a great addition to the series. It starts with Ian at a welcome home party thrown for him. He couldn't deal with it so he bolts and runs right into Roxanne. Their chemistry starts off smoking, but they have issues they have to work out. Can't wait until the next book on Nathan.

Second book in the series lived up to my expectations and more! Ian's finally home after his tour. Having been in war really affected him mentally, having a hard time with crowds, trying to get use to civilian life. Roxanne, Elle's best friend, swore off love due to things that happened in her past. When Ian and Roxanne's paths collide things take a calming affect. Safety they hadn't known they would ever feel! I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to find out if Nathan gets the girl he let get away!!
