In this warm, charming, and hilarious romance, a kindergarten teacher and children’s book author attempts to write erotica—and sets out to find the right Mr. Wrong for some hands-on inspiration.
Lettie Osbourne has lived her whole life by the book. Sweet, predictable, and certainly not living life on the edge, she’s always been content to make a living as a kindergarten teacher who writes adorable children’s books on the side. After her fiancé leaves her, Lettie decides she is perfectly content to accept her fate as mother to her beloved dog Odin and favorite auntie to her niece and nephew.
But then everything changes.
When Lettie’s publisher decides to sell only erotica, her editor convinces her to turn up the heat and throw some spice into her vanilla life. Lettie sets out to find the perfect man to inspire her writing...and finds him in her school’s vice principal, Eric Clayman. As Lettie and Eric grow closer and her writing gets steamier, she’s left wondering: is Eric Mr. Wrong? Or Mr. Right?
Seeking Mr. Wrong is an adult contemporary romance by Natalie Charles. This is the first book I have read by Natalie Charles, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a funny and quick read. It is about an author that is “forced” to switch from children’s books to spicy adult romance books when her publisher is bought by another publisher who publishes romance.
Watching Lettie struggle with this problem, which is totally outside of her personality and wheelhouse was really amusing for me. Not to mention hilarious for the people in her life as well. I loved seeing her family’s reaction to the whole thing. I thought her story was tons of fun. And Lettie herself is really likable and funny. I enjoyed Seeking Mr. Wrong. I don’t want to spoil too much of the plotline for this one, so you will just have to pick up the book for yourself to see.
While the book didn’t totally rock my world, I did really enjoy it. It was a quick read that is perfect for when you are in the mood for something light. The plot if funny. The characters are likable and the romance is really nice. I would recommend this one to fans of this kind of plot line.
