The Wrong Mr. Right is a funny, sizzling romance between two people who, on the surface, seem like too much the opposite to ever end up with a happy ending — but never give up on love, sometimes what’s on the surface is only hiding embers waiting to burst into flame.  In the third title of the Dynasties: The Carey Center series we finally see straight-laced, uptight, lives by schedules and lists Bennett brought to his knees by a woman, a funny, stubborn, strong, sexy woman with just as much passion and commitment to her career as Bennett has to his.  Worlds are about to collide with intriguing results.

Due to a fire at a landmark restaurant, Hannah is about to take on one of the biggest jobs of her career or of her family business as well.  The huge paycheck and bonus will allow her to pay off an annoying debt, bring the business some much-needed relief, and show her crew just how much she values them and their work… just one wee drawback.  She has to deal face-to-face with Bennett — and if you’ve followed this series you’ll understand just how much of a challenge that will turn out to be.  I adored Hannah from the start, she’s strong, takes no crap from anyone but especially not from entitled, arrogant rich men.  I enjoyed watching how she brought Bennett to his knees but also opened up herself to allow love to grow in a much-mistreated heart.  They might be opposites in many ways, but they worked so well as a couple.

I loved watching Bennett fall.  His confusion, the fighting attraction every step of the way.  And the eventual dumb move that almost cost him everything.  Bennett grew so much in The Wrong Mr. Right and I loved the man he’s become once letting life and love into his mindset.

The Retirement Wars are still ongoing, the wedding planning is getting sort of out of hand for two brides, and one precious little girl is about to get her backyard castle.  I had a good time back in this world, and next, we’ll finally discover what one rebellious, bad-boy has been keeping under wraps from his family in One Little Secret.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
