Mr. All Wrong by RC Stephens

Title: Mr. All Wrong
Author: RC Stephens
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: December 4, 2017
The first time I met Evie Harper, she threw a cream pie at my face. I actually hadn’t met her, just saw her. It was more like she hated everything I stood for and showed me her opinion with an airborne cream pie. Yes, she smacked me front and center on my face. The second time I saw Evie, I didn’t realize she was the cream-pie-throwing bandit, and she took my breath away in a flowing red gown at a gala. 
Of course I couldn’t resist her looks, so I asked her to dance. She called me a schmuck and stalked off. 
My own Cinderella ran away from me. I shouldn’t have chased her down. We were all wrong for each other. But her fire red hair and feisty personality reeled me in, and I was hooked. Chicago’s most renowned playboy was finally falling head over loafers. At least it felt that way because she was like no other woman I’d met before . . . Evie was special . . .
Problem was I had trust issues when it came to women. Freud would’ve probably said it was my mother’s doing. Somehow Evie made me believe in her . . . trust her . . .
Big damn mistake!
One I hope I won’t live to regret . . .
But then again how could someone so wrong for me turn out to be so damn perfect?

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

An interesting and unconventional first meeting between Colton and Evie showed Evie's passion and sass perfectly.  There was nothing conventional about this book as the characters' paths intertwine in completely unexpected and shocking ways.

I was completely hooked from the pie throwing incident right to the very last word.  There was humour, struggles, power play and plenty of secrets abound in this book.

Governor Colton has found himself pushed into power by his ambitious father who wants to see him in the White House.  Colton feels as though he owes his father for raising him single handed and putting his own ambition on hold.  Meeting Evie and her son Carter shows him a taste of a different life - a life that looks pretty good to him.

I loved Colton and Evie and Carter.  They made sense and together everything seemed right with the world.  Colton's over riding desire to please his father make him happy could be their undoing.
