The Wrong Guy by Lauren Landish

Is he wrong, or oh so right?

Best of friends with benefits—and more in common than they ever expected—in a funny and sexy romance by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Landish.

Wren Ford is the city attorney for Cold Springs—a job she takes seriously. Good thing she has a great form of stress relief: a friends-with-benefits arrangement with the well-muscled and very attentive construction worker Jesse Sullivan. Wren’s heart secretly craves more, but how can she fess up her feelings to a man who doesn’t want to get tied down?

Jesse is head over heels in love with Wren, but he can’t picture a happily ever after. What would an attorney and out-of-his-league goddess want with him? Especially when a flirty, cocky lawyer who screams money and power shows an interest in Wren.

As a scandalous high-profile split escalates from name-calling to corporate takeovers, Wren and Jesse must team up to find a way to protect the people and the town they love. And everyone in Cold Springs is rooting for them to figure out that maybe, against all odds, they’re made for each other.

Wren and Jesse are the IT couple, only no one knows it. They have a friends-with-benefits relationship, but when Wren wants more Jesse pulls away.

Several years later, Wren is asked to help an out-of-town attorney with a high-profile case. Jesse began to see what he had wanted and had been missing all along. As the case progresses, Wren learns more than she should but knows who is in the wrong. She also spends more time with Jesse and knows that is where she is meant to be.

This story is filled with a little mystery, suspense, and a lot of steaminess and fun. You will not want to stop reading. I enjoyed this story and look forward to more from this author.

This is the second in the series, and whilst you would definitely have more backstory if you had read the first one, you could still enjoy this as a standalone and then go back.

Wren is part of the Ford clan, but works hard to be her own person after the bad reputation of her uncle and his impact on her father in the past. So it is more difficult than one might imagine, especially when her loathsome uncle decides to divorce his wife, and there is a lot of drama around that event. It has an impact on a big housing project, and potentially on the livelihood of her 'friend-with-benefits' building contractor Jesse.

These two are super cute when together, and clearly meant for each other, but Wren is so busy establishing her career and taking on a leadership role at work, and Jesse feels that she deserves better than a builder who works for her uncle. It is entertaining watching it all play out – I could have done with less about Chrissy and her divorce demands, but it does enable a bit of legal complexity to be brought into the story, and a lawyer who develops an interest in Wren.

Unexpectedly, Wren also improves her understanding of her father, and the family is stronger for the revelations in this book.

Really enjoyable romantic read.
