Winter Reads: Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles

Pocket Star EBooks; 365 pages; $1.99; Buy Link
Now available from Pocket Star EBooks is the erotic-romantic-comedy Seeking Mr. Wrong by Natalie Charles, which is out just in time for Valentine's Day.

The novel centers on a kindergarten teacher named Lettie Osbourne, who is also the author of a series of children books featuring a character called Sweet Pea. Life hasn't been easy for her ever since her now ex-fiance called off their wedding during the summer; though the breakup wasn't at all her fault, as it turns out her ex is actually gay.

Starting a new school year should be exciting for Lettie, but thanks to a scandal from the former vice principal, the school's funds are on a tight leash by the school board; putting pressure on all the teachers.

Then out of nowhere, she receives notice from her editor that the publishing house has been purchased by another publishing company, which basically means they are dropping the Sweet Pea books. The twist is Lettie is still under contract for one more novel and she must write a novella under the publisher's only genre - erotica.

Yep, erotica! With virtually no love life, there's no possible way Lettie can write a erotic novel. Well, that is until the new vice principal, Eric Clayman, enters her life and helps Lettie to unleash her naughty side.

Final Thoughts: Yeah, erotic-romances aren't exactly my kind of genre to read. However, I'm trying to expand my reading horizons this year, so I thought I would give Seeking Mr. Wrong a try. What appealed to be the most about this eBook is the premise of a children writer switching genres to romance novels.

I had never read a novel by the author before, so I didn't know exactly what to expect before I started reading the ARC that was sent to me. To my surprise, the novel is cleverly written. I was hooked into the narration right from the very beginning. Lettie, the main character, is very likeable, and will probably appeal to many female readers (I'm guessing here, since I'm a male reader!). Yes, there are several "hot" scenes, but most of them are fictional stories that Lettie is writing.

Overall, Seeking Mr. Wrong is a spicy romantic read with a little humor tossed about. If don't have any other plans for Valentine's Day, it would make a great read.
