We've all been there - getting such a crazy crush on a guy that we turn into blabbering idiots every time they come around, do stupid things and forget how to walk, and then realize that we had lipstick on our teeth the whole time. Yeah, you know that sounds familiar. That's why "Winning Mr. Wrong" hit such a chord with me. I remember doing silly things to get a guy's attention. Although, I have to say, I've never done anything quite as crazy as Charley does in Marie Higgin's new novel.
Charley has been looking for the right man her entire life, but her luck always seems to turn bad. She wants a man who will love her forever, take her to the temple, and create an eternal family unit. Of course, if he happens to make her heart go pitty-pat, all the better, right? But when another relationship fails, she's left feeling as though it will never happen for her. Most women are married by now, and she wonders if she's doomed to be alone.
It doesn't help that her sexy Italian next-door neighbor has a string of women coming and going from his life. Why can a guy go out and get all the dates he wants, but a woman has to just sit and wait around for things to happen to her?
When Charley reads an article on the Internet about how to snag your man, she decides to give it a try. The advice seems pretty decent at first - give him chocolate, compliment him, spend time with him - but, being Charley, she has to have a few adventures along the way. Her chosen subject for the experiment turns out to be allergic to chocolate, and everything goes downhill from there. But one trip to the emergency room isn't enough to put her off her game - she's going to keep trying until she lands her man.
I chuckled right out loud several times as I read this novel - read it in one sitting, might I add. It was a perfect light read for a quiet evening, and I think you'll enjoy it just as much as I did.
Now you can win a copy of this delightful novel. Just leave a comment in the trail and tell me, what is the silliest thing you've ever done to get a guy's (or a girl's - I know I have male readers too) attention? You will be entered in a drawing, which will take place on Thanksgiving night at 10 p.m. MST. So leave your comment before then, and maybe you'll be thankful to win a new book!
I was given a copy of this novel by the publisher for my review, but that did not influence my comments at all.
