Mr. Wright Now by Alannah Carbooneau ~Randi's Review~


He was supposed to be the rebound…

After a pathetic reenactment of The Runaway Bride, the last thing Nelena Price needed was a man to swoop in and steal her heart. Good liquor, laughter, and great no-strings sex were the only options she wanted on her menu.

Kade Wright had every intention of savoring Nelena, never anticipating he would fall addicted to her taste.

But can the events of fourteen days in Vegas really be left in Vegas?


I've been a fan of Alannah Carbonneau for a while now. I have found that she has the ability to write many different types of books in the romance genre, and I have yet to find one that I didn't love.

Mr. Wright Now is no different.

One of the things that I have found the I love the most about her writing, is how I find myself feeling like I can connect with the main characters. In this story I feel like I can relate to Neleana in the way that she had never really let herself let loose and just have fun for the sake of fun. I've always found I've had a hard time with this as well.

After Neleana left her douche-bag of a fiance at the alter right before finding out her had slept with her sister, her best friend, Kali, and her father both talk her into going to Vegas for a two week vacation to try and get past the breakup and maybe have a little bit of fun.
Neleana isn't looking for much, a little bit of sun and relaxation, and maybe a guy, a Mr. Right now, to get her mind off of her troubles.
What she didn't expect was to literally meet Mr. Wright, Kade Wright that is, on her first night in town. Or to fall for his charms and go home to spend the night with him.

But after they both realize that one night together isn't going to be enough, they decide to commit to each other for the two weeks she'll be in town, and then go their separate ways.

Because that always sounds like a good idea right? There's no possible way, after the heartbreak they've both experienced, that anything about that plan will blow up in their faces...

But that's why we love books like this, because even though we've all read similar stories, each time they are told in a new and exciting way, and Alannah Carbonneau is no different in the regard.
Her stories are never old and predictable. She finds a new way to write each character that leaves you eagerly anticipating the next page.
And after the cliffhanger ending of this book, I'm eagerly anticipating the next installment of this story. I can't wait to find out what will happen next.

Like with all of her other books, I recommend giving this one a read.

5 out of 5 stars





I live in Alberta, Canada, where the weather is forever changing (without warning). I am engaged to be married in August 2015 to my high school sweetheart and love of my life. There are no children in my life as of right now, but we do have a handful of rambunctious cats (four) and a testy, rescued Shepard/Husky, who take up a lot of my time.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve adored the written word. English was always my favorite class and that may be biased because I can’t count to save my life, so math was a horror! I remember the very first novel I ever read, Shocking Pink by Erica Spindler. It was the most interesting of the covers on my mom’s bookshelf (probably because it was pink) and I was way too young to be reading that novel. But I fell in love. From there, I read almost everything from V.C. Andrews.

My writing started out as poetry, which then evolved to songs, and later into novels. I was never one for the short stories as I found it too difficult to pack everything I imagined into something so small. I now have multiple novels published independently. I write both novels for young adults and novels for adults – all romance.

Despite my favorite younger reading material, I now adore writing and reading all things romance.
