Wanting Mr Wrong is an irresistible rom com about a girl who refuses to fall for the man the whole world is in love with.
Evie Parker has never been one to swoon after celebrities – give her a neuroscientist over an actor any day! So when she develops her first movie-star crush, she’s determined to date her way out of it, starting with the next good-looking doctor she sees.
Yet hovering on the fringes of her life is her gay best friend’s determined brother, Jackson J Stevens, a famous actor who comes with trailing paparazzi.
The one thing worse than a celebrity in Evie’s eyes is a media circus, so Jack isn’t an option no matter how hard he flirts with her.
Evie knows what she doesn’t want; Jack knows what he does. And somewhere in the middle, pheromones are making things go haywire every time they’re together.
When page two had me laughing out loud, I knew I was going to love this book. I was not disappointed. Wanting Mr Wrong was such a fun read. I was hooked from the start and could hardly put it down, consuming it within a day and a half.
Due to an event that happened in her past, Evie has a huge fear of the media, and so getting involved with an actor is the last thing she wanted. Doctors were more her thing, men who made a difference in the world. She never dreamed Jackson J Stevens would be attracted to an ordinary girl like her, besides he wasn’t her type. But when Jack makes his feelings clearly known, Evie becomes torn between her body, which clearly wants Jack, and her head, which can’t stand the thought of the media circus that surrounds Jack.
But Jack is not one to give up. He does whatever it takes to get what he wants, and promises Evie he will protect her as best he can against the media. He was confident, smoldering, romantic and determined. His only downfall was that sometimes he was a little too demanding at times. Evie’s heart is leading her in a direction she doesn’t want to go and she’ll have to figure out what’s most important to her, what’s going to make her truly happy.
I loved Evie and Jack. They had such amazing chemistry. Sparks flew whenever they were in the room together. Their exchanges were hilarious and romantic. There were some terrific twists and an edge of your seat ending.
Wanting Mr Wrong was a charming, sweet, swoon-worthy, and steamy read. Evie and Jack will sink into your heart. Tremayne is an author to watch and I look forward to reading more of your work. If you love romantic comedies I highly recommend this one.

And having tried her hand at shoe selling, nursing, teaching, and short-order cooking, before braving the corporate ladder as a high flying executive mixing it up with the business elite and an occasional celebrity, Avril has gathered more than enough raw material to kick-start a swag of tall tales.
She lives in Sydney, Australia, where her husband and daughter try to keep her out of trouble – not always successfully.
She’s a mad keen traveller, with more favourite cities than should be strictly allowable, and loves giving travel advice to anyone who asks – and a good few who don’t!?
When she’s not writing or reading, Avril can generally be found eating – although she does not cook – drinking wine, and obsessing about shoes.
