In Bed with Mr. Wrong (An Out of Uniform Novel) by Katee Robert

The blind date from hell is about to get hotter…

Brianne Nave is never doing her friends a favor again. When they begged her to go on a blind date, she didn't expect someone so perfectly gorgeous. She's a mousy librarian--totally not in this man's league. And judging by his odd reaction when she opens the door, he knows it, too.

Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He's not thrilled about the date until he's shocked silent by the prickly little librarian's sweet curves and kissable lips…and her smart mouth. But then an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?

When their friends strand them in a cabin to "work things out," Bri's not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line--Ryan's career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He'll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she's foolish enough to give him her heart, he'll take it with him.

    I just finished In Bed with Mr. Wrong by Katee Robert. I have to

    I just finished In Bed with Mr. Wrong by Katee Robert. I have to say that I have enjoyed Katee previous books, but I think this one just knocked my socks off. I mean you have heat, passion, and some serious chemistry. I feel when the hero and heroine have so much animosity towards one another that something is going to happen. One, they either kill each other or two, they end up tearing up the sheets. Of course they didn't end up killing each other, so we have to go with option two.

    We have Ryan Flannery whose an Air Force Pararescuer. Well, he's on leave and decides to go to his hometown even though he hates being there. While he's home his brother (Derek) and good friend (Avery) decide to set him up on a blind date with the town librarian, Brianne Nave.

    First off, this was the date from hell or a Murphy's Law kind of date. You know the law, and basically the whole date was disaster. However, they did have chemistry. When they weren't fighting, well let just say that there was very little talking going on. Now Derek and Avery see the chemistry and decide to take matters into their own hands, like derange fairy godparents. Anyway, they set Ryan and Bri on an adventure that will change their lives.

    I'm not kidding when I say that I believe Katee has outdone herself with In Bed with Mr. Wrong. I mean I was laughing the start. The date was a disaster, but they couldn't fight chemistry that was between them. They were explosive, but a lot of that stem from misunderstanding on both ends. However, these to were HOT, HOT, HOT! Some better get a fan or something. Overall, LOVED In Bed with Mr. Wrong. It has steamy parts and funny parts, especially at the cabin. So, if you are looking for a little steam with a hint of disaster, you might seriously consider In Bed with Mr. Wrong.

    This is an amazing example of a romance novel done right. Hot alpha male…check. Feisty heroine…check. Smoking hot chemistry…check. Burn the pages sex scenes…double check. And all of that together with the roller coaster ride of getting to know and falling in love with someone and you’ve got the perfect book. I was immediately captivated by this book and Ryan and Bri. I loved them separately, but especially when they were together. The snarky back and forth bickering was fantastically entertaining, even when it was frustrating because all I wanted them to do was talk it out. 

    I saw a lot of myself in Bri. She’s a mousy librarian who thinks a fun Friday night is curling up with a good book (me too, except the mousy librarian part, although I’ve always wanted to be a librarian). She has a betta fish that she loves and talks to (I so did that with both of mine until they died). There are quite a few moments in the book where she compares her situation to the books she reads (I’ve been known to do that). She also tended to jump to conclusions and take things out of context (yep, I’ve been known to do that too), which often led to the snarky bickering that really was so much fun to watch.

    Ryan really is the perfect alpha male. And he’s a military hero to boot…swoon. The things he does to Bri is so freaking hot…on the porch swing…against the wall…on the bearskin rug…yes please!! But he’s also sweet and vulnerable and caring. He’s also bullheaded and had a tendency to jump to conclusions and take things out of context. It was evident from the start that Ryan and Bri were perfect for each other. One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Bri is reading a romance book and Ryan asks her to read it out loud to him, she does until she gets to the steamy part and then he takes over. I suddenly want a man to read me a hot romance novel.

    This is only my second Katee Robert book, but I fell for her writing style while reading the first one, now I’m totally in love with her. She has found a permanent spot on my must read author list which meant I had to rush out to buy her other Brazen books. I can’t wait to read them. Hopefully life and other books will let me get them in soon. In the meantime, I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves hot romances and amazing characters.

    Bad

    I don't get the good reviews. Ms. Robert once again writes an annoying heroine. This is my third book by her and I hated all three heroines. Ugh. Where are the strong, independent, kind and playful heroines? Come on, not all women are such witches!!

    Blind Date From Hell Combusts in 3¿2¿1 . In Bed with Mr. Wrong.

    Blind Date From Hell Combusts in 3…2…1 . In Bed with Mr. Wrong.

    Well-meaning friends, who thought they knew the “right person” for us, set us up on blind dates. Some dates led to great relationships, but many more did not. That was the premise for Katee Robert’s In Bed with Mr. Wrong.

    Sexy Air Force Pararescuer, Ryan Flannery, was home on leave and his older brother, Drew and childhood friend, Avery, set him up on a date with the town’s new librarian, Brianne Nave. Bri, the quintessential mousy librarian, had heard about the gorgeous airman, and was anxious about meeting him. Their initial encounter, wrought with misunderstanding, set the scene for a funny face-off, as both Ryan and Bri, gave as well as they got.

    As the story quickly progressed, their date from hell escalated into a game of lust-filled anything-you-can-do-I-can-do-better, one-upmanship, as they hurled insult grenades, like schoolyard spitballs, at each other. The one-liners were hysterical and provided their own brand of foreplay combining mutual loathing and undeniable attraction. Then, their friends provided an unexpected twist that required Ryan and Bri to spend time together. Alone.

    Ms. Robert could have written a romantic comedy and been successful. However, she gave both characters depth, as each was masking pain, feelings of abandonment and bruised hearts stemming from childhood circumstances. Each created ways to cope - Ryan by escaping into the Air Force and Bri by creating a sense of belonging to the one town in the world Ryan despised. As they tried to sublimate their growing feelings for each other, they instinctively learned when to push and when to allow the other person space. Ms. Robert did not shy away from introducing an event that would test their newly forming relationship, as Ryan was an active duty airman. Old fears surfaced, and whether they would survive the experience or not, would set the tone for their possible future together. All while fighting an inexplicable, sometimes all-consuming, passion.

    Ms. Robert’s next book in the series will feature Avery and Drew. There was a hint of some familial tension and it promises to be as funny and possibly a tearjerker. I am looking forward to reading it.

    I love sexual tension between characters and there is a lot if it between Ryan and Bri. From the first time they meet it starts. They appear to hate each other but are totally attracted to each other. They have HOT sex and then fight. I love Katee's books and this one is another winner. Can't wait for the next one....maybe Drew and Avery?

    So lucky to have won an ARC from Katee Robert of this amazing book. I am a big fan of Katee’s books!

    As usual, Katee knocks this story out of the park. She’s got all the perfect elements for a hot and steamy romance. They mingled together with the flawless sense of sweet, sexy, heartwarming and passion.

    Follow a “mousy librarian” and a sexy Air Force Para-rescuer on a fun, sexy and sometimes piss you off journey.
    Bri had a tough past and finally found her place in a small town. Ryan had a tough past and ran away to the military to get away from his small town. When he finally returns for a short break and agrees to a blind date his brother and friend set up he was surprised to meet Bri, even more surprised when they argue the entire length of the first date. The worst part for them is realizing they have been stranded in a secluded cabin for three days by their so-called friends. They then must work through their issues and try to keep their hands off each other. Spoiler: that only partially happens, they can’t keep their hands off each other though!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the back and forth between Bri and Ryan and Katee never fails at giving you lots of great sex throughout the book! The side characters are interesting and I’m keeping my fingers crossed to see Avery and Drew in upcoming books.

    This is a fantastic addition to Katee's work and I highly recommend this sexy, fun read!

    My only note would be that of course, I WANT MORE!

    This is the BEST enemies-to-lovers romance!

    Brianne Nave grew up in the foster system after the death of her parents. Though it wasn't a horror story it certainly lacked a solid sense of belonging, of a place to call home and people she could call family. When she came to Wellingford to take over as librarian she began to make both for herself. But when her closest friends set her up on a blind date with Ryan Flannery, who happens to be in town on leave for a couple of weeks, she figures it'll be a disaster. And it is, spectacularly awful.

    Ryan and Bri's misassumptions of one another lead to heated arguing and even more heated sex. If the pair have that much chemistry physically how can they hate each other so much? When their friends strand them at a cabin in the middle of nowhere they're stuck spending a few days with little to entertain themselves and an awful lot of conveniently placed condoms. If they can get over themselves long enough can they see how perfect they are for each other not just in the bedroom (or the woodshed)?

    This is the first non-paranormal read I've had in a while that I could not put down and the first book I read in a day in ages. From the first page IN BED WITH MR. WRONG had me smirking and laughing and dropping my jaw. Bri and Ryan are so ridiculously suited to one another that it's almost painful. I could hardly wait to see their walls come tumbling down and their feelings of loathing become love. Enemies-to-lovers is a fun trope but it's not always well done. Robert tackled it flawlessly, making sure we readers could see from the start what the characters could not. That this story centered around excellent sexual chemistry managed to make it really fulfilling as Bri and Ryan's relationship moved from being just physical to something more.

    I did have one thing I was kind of meh about and it's usually something I love so I feel like it needs to be noted. The secondary characters—whom I discovered are the next couple in the series—confused me a lot. I couldn't figure out how they'd be friends since childhood based on their age differences (etc.). It's not a deal breaker, I just hope Robert elaborates on their history more in the next book so I can grasp it better. Considering those two were the catalyst for Ryan and Bri's cabin fever it felt like it was stuff I needed to know just a little more about to get their motivation.

    Packed with scorching love scenes, laugh-out-loud incidents, and a couple of secret nods to Robert's street team (thanks again for Chapter Twelve Katee!!!) IBWMW is just plain awesome. I loved it and I think anyone who reads a lot of Brazen titles will regret skipping this one. If you love enemies-to-lovers stories, military heroes, small town romances, or stories where the hero and heroine fall in love while stranded this is a RhiReading MUST READ.

    4.5/5 stars This is my first official Brazen and I can tell you

    4.5/5 stars This is my first official Brazen and I can tell you right now: IT WON'T BE MY LAST. I have several Brazens on my Kindle, but just haven't found time to read them. They are such fast reads, however, that I will be sneaking them in at every possible opportunity!

    In Bed With Mr. Wrong was a fun, cute, steamy read and I devoured it in no time at all! I loved Bri and Ryan's characters and their back and forth banter was hilarious! They are total opposites but they have some incredibly hot sexual tension! They do NOT get off on the right foot at all and have a seriously awkward blind date. Yet, they didn't let that awkwardness interfere with how the date ended that's for sure! Whew!

    Bri definitely let her defenses get the best of her. She grew up in foster care and didn't have the best experience with it. Too many times she felt unwanted or abandoned and she now has some self-confidence issues. Ryan's expression when he first sees her reminds her all too well of the look her first set of foster parents had when they first saw her. Her first instinct is self preservation and she ends up making some snide comments and brings up his past, throwing it in his face.

    Ryan definitely doesn't back down from the challenge. He's just as stubborn as she is and doesn't let her sling insults without dishing them back in return. Bri let the pain of her past interfere and she jumped to conclusions about Ryan's initial thoughts. He is taken back by how beautiful she was, but how she LOOKED the part of a librarian. He is annoyed she thinks he's a charity case, as he's only home on leave for a short time. She doesn't know the first thing about him and he doesn't like that she makes her assumptions based on hearsay. Ryan also didn't have the best childhood growing up. He had his brother Drew, but that was it. Their father was a drunk and Ryan had earned a reputation as the troublemaker kid. This is one of the reasons he had to get out of his small hometown that Bri loves.

    Hands down the fact that these two go from fighting to trying to crawl inside one another is my favorite aspect. I always loved how in The Notebook Allie and Noah would scream and fight with one another but then turn around and can't get enough of each other. That is exactly how Bri and Ryan act and it is oh-so-HOT.

    Drew and Avery (Drew's best friend and a good friend to Bri) are plotting to get the two together and end up stranding them in a cabin with one another for a few days- Bri and Ryan are NOT happy with the development, but being stranded definitely has its perks.

    I really liked Drew and Avery. They have been best friends forever and their scheming and plotting to get Ryan and Bri together is great. We don't get a whole lot of them, but from what I can gather, they are going to be fun characters to get to know in Drew's story (which I think is next)

    While Bri frustrated me with her insecurities, I understood why she was so against letting Ryan in. Letting him in would make her vulnerable and she is terrified of that feeling of abandonment. She likes her small town and her job- both are reliable and make her feel safe. Ryan's job is dangerous and he doesn't want to put down roots in Wellingford. Ryan makes her FEEL so much and she is afraid of getting in so deep with him she won't be able to dig her way out after it's all said and done. Ryan is a champ for not completely losing his cool with her. She frustrates him, but the more intimate they are, he realizes he really does care for her and she is hiding behind her fear. As much as he wants her, he won't let her play games with him and I was pretty proud of Ryan for standing up for himself.

    Ryan and Bri have some really tender, sweet moments and I liked seeing these two get to know one another and tear down each other's defenses. Falling for each other may not have been in the cards, but sometimes love will find you where you least expect it. It's up to Bri and Ryan to make the choice as to whether they will take the plunge with one another or spend their lives running scared.

    Being wrong has never been so right

    Reviewed by Kim
    for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    Brianne Neve is a librarian and is relatively new to the small town of Wellingford, Pennsylvania. In fact she’s been in town for about fourteen months and only has two close friends, Avery and Drew. For Bri, she likes to keep herself closed off in order to avoid getting too close to people who might leave her. After losing her parents at an early age and then aging out of the foster care system, this is Bri’s only way to survive.

    Ryan Flannery hasn’t had the best life. He’s made mistakes that the people of his hometown of Willingford are more than happy to continue to talk about more than ten years later. He’s gone on to become the best that the Air Force has to offer, a Pararescuer. Unfortunately, this and his other accomplishments aren’t what he hears people talking about. He likes to avoid Wellingford at all costs.

    Talk about a crazy enemies to lovers romance. In Bed with Mr. Wrong was a story that had me smiling from the very beginning. Bri and Ryan agree to a blind date with each other under false pretenses. Bri agreed to go out with Ryan because she was helping out her friends Avery and Drew by not “leaving Ryan to his own devices.” Ryan agreed to go out with Bri because Avery and Drew (his brother) said she was new to town and needed someone to show her a good time. Needless to say, things don’t go very well on the date.

    Bri and Ryan may fight like cats and dogs but their attraction to one another can NOT be denied. When tempers get in the way, the physical attraction is too much to not act on. Ryan takes Bri out of her comfort zone in more ways than one and gets under her skin like no one else.

    Avery and Drew are so sure that Bri and Ryan are right for each other, they set up an intervention and leave the two stranded in a well-stocked secluded cabin in the woods alone for three days. When Ryan and Bri aren’t arguing with each other, they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Just when things start to look up for these two, Bri’s fear of being left alone tears them apart. They will have to fight for the love they never knew they wanted.

    Good Book! Besides being a Brazen groupie, I am a Katee Robert

    Good Book!

    Besides being a Brazen groupie, I am a Katee Robert fan. So getting the opportunity to read an ARC of In Bed with Mr. Wrong made me very happy. This is a hot read, with sizzling characters and a unique storyline..

    Brianne Nave is a success, in spite of a being a product of the foster care system. After her parents died in a car accident, she found solace by immersing herself in books. She put herself through college and a few years later, relocated to Wellingford, a small town in central Pennsylvania to take over the position of head librarian. She loves her job, the town, and her two best friends, Avery and Drew. The only thing missing from her life is a loving relationship.

    Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery grew up in Wellingford, and the moment he graduated high school he joined the Air Force. His childhood was lonely, due to his mother's death and his father being a drunkard. His only salvation was his older brother Drew, who is now the town sheriff. Ryan detests the gossipy small town because the townsfolk constantly pester him about the antics of his youth whenever he returns from deployment or when the mood strikes them. He desperately needs a place to call home and a woman to share his life with.

    This is the story of Brianne and Ryan, two lonely people that together make the perfect couple. They end up spending three glorious days together in a secluded cabin, courtesy of Avery and Drew. They get to know each other and share amazing sexual chemistry. Letting go of their fears from the past will enable them to have a future.

    I enjoyed this book, especially the second half and the epilogue. Ms. Roberts writes mind-blowing sex scenes that always leave me wanting more and this book does not disappoint. Brianne and Ryan are well defined both emotionally and physically, which made it very easy to form a connection to them instantly. I loved how their relationship unfolded and got a kick out of their bickering. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***




    In Bed with Mr. Wrong by Katee Robert
    Book One of the Out of Uniform series
    Publisher: Brazen
    Publication Date: January 13, 2014
    Rating: 4 stars
    Source: Gifted Kindle book




    ***Warning: this is an adult book, and for the eyes of mature readers***




    Summary (from Goodreads):




    The blind date from hell is about to get hotter…




    Brianne Nave is never doing her friends a favor again. When they begged her to go on a blind date, she didn't expect someone so perfectly gorgeous. She’s a mousy librarian—totally not in this man’s league. And judging by his odd reaction when she opens the door, he knows it, too.




    Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He’s not thrilled about the date until he’s shocked silent by the prickly little librarian’s sweet curves and kissable lips…and her smart mouth. But then an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?




    When their friends strand them in a cabin to "work things out," Bri’s not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line—Ryan’s career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He’ll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she’s foolish enough to give him her heart, he’ll take it with him.




    What I Liked:




    If there is one thing that you blog readers know about me, it's that I am a drill sergeant when it comes to my review books. Currently, I have spreadsheets and Word documents and calendars to help me keep track of all of my review books, and make sure that I read and review them all. Suffice it to say, I have a schedule, and this book was NOT part of my schedule. But I've been reading so many Young Adult books, and I was really in the mood for a good old romance book!




    This book was perfect for me - just when I needed it, Katee Robert/Brazen came through. Bri and Ryan's chemistry and romance were a balm to my aching soul (because you KNOW that Young Adult books are filled with angst-ridden, love-triangle-filled romances). Bri agrees to go on a date with her friend's brother, who happens to be the very sexy Air Force military solider Ryan. The date quickly goes up in flames (heh), because it totally gets started on the wrong foot, but things get steamy fast. Think angry sex.




    I love this story. Usually I wouldn't be one for the angry sex type situations, but it was definitely what I needed. The raw passion and chemistry is definitely NOT something that Young Adult literature portrays. Bri and Ryan get under each her's skin quite often, and it's hilarious and amusing to see their reactions to each other.




    Initially, Bri thinks that Ryan thinks that she is average, plain, the librarian type. In fact, he DOES call her a mousy librarian, but to get under her skin. That is definitely NOT what he thinks about her at all - he thinks that she is sexy in her own way. I LOVE that Robert decided to feature a heroine like Bri, who is more like the stereotypical librarian type, and I LOVE that Bri is actually not that at all. Bri turns out to be a pretty fierce woman who have and knows her own needs.




    I love Ryan! Sexy military guy for the win! I don't know if it's just me, but there is just something about military personnel. Men in uniform? Totally my type. Ryan is a bit of a caveman, but I love his personality, his character, his being. He and Bri are good for each other.




    I love the cabin stunt - that was clever, by Bri friends (and Ryan's brother). It definitely helped Bri and Ryan work things out, both physically and emotionally. The cabin scenes were probably my favorite in the book. 




    All in all, I definitely needed this book at the time. Raw, sexy times? Perfect. Katee Robert really delivers the romance, the chemistry, and the awesome characters. I really like her romance novels, and I'll definitely be reading more of her romance books. And more of Brazen's books in general!




    What I Did Not Like:




    As with most of the other adult contemporary romance novels I've read, there's always that THING that keeps the heroine and hero from getting together - and it's usually a "problem" that the heroine has. This story is no except - Bri almost doesn't allow herself to be happy with Ryan. Her reason is kind of stupid, in my opinion - but then, I usually think the reasons are. There has to be a better reason than simple "trust issues". But whatever. I mostly forgive Bri.




    Would I Recommend It:




    If you're into adult contemporary romance, then yes! I realize that the age level and genre are sooo not for everyone, but for fans of either, you'll enjoy this one! If you're a regular Brazen reader (like me), then you will most likely enjoy this book! I, for one, cannot get enough of these Brazen books. I think I've enjoyed every single I've read.




    Rating:




    4 stars. What a great romance novel! And excellent timing, too. This was just what I needed at the time, and I'm glad I *finally* read it. Katee Robert is definitely a fantastic romance writer!

    4 stars - Smokin' hot chemistry that will turn you right onto the next page!




    It's amazing what one little misunderstanding can do between two people and then you add some pride and things just get out of hand.  That would be the issue between Ryan and Bri.  It would also be the end of the story except for some smokin' hot chemistry that wasn't gonna be denied.




    It was totally fun watching these two banter.  They could find each others buttons in the dark and so push.  But as soon as their lips touched a different story was told.




    I enjoyed these characters.  Ryan, I loved.  He gets over being a jerk and is trying faster than Bri does.  The chemistry between them intrigued him and he needed to understand her.  She wasn't gonna make it easy for him though.  I did want to slap her at one point.  She held on to her witchy ways way too long if ask me but I guess she did have her reasons.  In the end, I was happy with both of them.




    The story grabbed me fast.  I started it late at night and I didn't want to stop reading it.  I will admit that there was a point where I wanted to throw the book more than read it but that quickly vanished.  I read it in about a day.




    These two have some smokin' hot chemistry.  Bri may not like the mousy librarian reference but it's true as far as her bedroom experience is concerned.  The thing is that Ryan's hands and mouth can wake her like nothing else ever has and he, for sure, has ruined her for all other men.




    If you love the Brazen line, then this one is a must.  So yummy.  If you like your romance a little on the hot side, then this is a must.  If you love romance that turns you on, then this is a must.

    Meh...

    The heroine in the book completely annoyed me. She was irritating a total hypocrite. She constantly threw things in his face that was completely unnecessary to the story line. She only made herself look like a heartless you know what. I didn't feel the chemistry that everyone keeps talking about between Ryan and Bri. I overall, just didn't buy into the whole story...

    Skip it - Not even worth the .99. Had to make myself finish this book and skipped pages to make that happen. Bri is annoying, argumentative and a compete b---ch. She's not likable until the last chapter of the book. There are too many good books to read to waste time on this one.
