Publisher's Summary

I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma's boy? Check, check and check.

Now I can't stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It's just a harmless crush, right? It's not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It's not like I'm going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he's the doctor. Shoot. Me.

But what if, for once, the man I've had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?

Falling in love with an older man

This is not one of the romance genres I generally enjoy, but something about the title "Wrong" grabbed my attention, and I am glad it did. Sophie is a university student, working in a coffee shop, who wants to have sex for the first time. Although she has been seeing a fellow student, Sophie is attracted to a slightly older but sexy man who appears once a week to purchase coffee. She's made an appointment at the clinic for birth control, and the sexy man turns out to be a gynecologist. And then their romance takes off, after a couple of hurdles. What was terrific about this story is that you, as a listener/reader, never feel that Sophie is forced to do anything that she does not want to do. She is strong, although young and not as worldly or experienced as Luke, the doctor and she has a lot of autonomy to chose her path in life. I didn't like the secondary character, Beverly/Everly whom I found a tad annoying, but apparently, she's got her own book, so my opinion may change. #Audible1

ABSOLUTELY & POSITIVELY NOTHING 'WRONG' HERE

And this book was actually oh so right on so many levels.. especially when the flirty, fun and fairly angst free storyline describes a scene where the 21 yr old virginal College student/barista mortifyingly meets her suit-wearing coffee shop crush/fantasy man when she comes face to face with her Gynaecologist who turns out to be all kinds of Dr. McDreamy. And, before too long, there are steamy scenes where the droolworthy dirty talking Doctor is masterfully showing her what he likes in the bedroom.. the kitchen.. his office.. well anywhere that he can get his very talented hands on her.

A thoroughly enjoyable and totally entertaining story that was h.o.t. HOT between an alpha 35 yr old doctor who is wealthy, successful charismatic, possessive and dominant and a naive, insecure, smart, easy-going virgin who gets swept up in all things McHottie.. and I don't blame her one bit. There were well described scenes, good secondary characters, a b'tch of an ex who stirs up some trouble and only climaxes of the pleasurable kind are found here in this very rewarding listen that was told from the heroine's POV. Erin Mallon's narration was perfect in bringing this easy-going easy-flowing lighthearted listen to life.

Worth a credit? Yes and, as I smirked, blushed, snorted, swooned and sniggered my way through this far too short listen, I knew that I'd soon be purchasing the rest of Jana Aston's books.

What a Debut Novel!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Wrong is fun, flirty and oh, so sexy! Narrator Erin Mallon somehow made author Jana Aston's sex scenes even more scintillating! I was more than a little distracted when driving!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Sophie. She is an excellent balance of insecurity, naiveté and poise.

What does Erin Mallon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator was excellent. Different voices for each character. She didn't "over-do" the male characters. Her depiction of the main character was a perfect blend of naivety and curiosity.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can Mr. Right by so wrong?

Any additional comments?

Wrong is the debut novella by indie author, Jana Aston. Let me tell you, there is a lot right with Wrong.

I adored main characters Sophie and Luke—individually and as a couple. Luke is a smart, successful, handsome, polite, knows his way around a woman’s body, swoon-worthy sort of man. He is a thoughtful guy who’s actions speak volumes about his character and his feelings toward other people. Virginal Sophie is pretty insecure, and yet, at times, she has a lot of poise for someone so young and inexperienced.

The secondary characters are a mixed bag. Some were developed enough and some were not more than a mention (with and without a solid position in moving the plot along). Jean the sex-crazed dorm roommate is great. She’s a good friend who clearly is more experienced that Sophie. Co-worker and bestie, Everly, is a great friend who I didn’t warm up to when I first read the book. Merideth, Alex, and Bella are part of Luke’s family—Bella is adorable, Meredith is super nice, Alex is barely mentioned. Gina is left mysterious; she appears sophisticated, but her schemes felt beneath her level of social-class, education and sophistication. Dr. & Mrs. Miller—their role is to show the dichotomy of Sophie’s and Luke’s life/upbringing. They’re not supposed to be likable, but it was overplayed a bit in a couple scenes. I would have liked them to have more of a role, and had their agendas built into the plot a bit more to create more tension and angst.

Sophie, a college senior, working as a barista at a local coffee shop gets a weekly thrill serving one particularly hot customer who comes every Tuesday. Many days, it’s the little things, like a special customer, that get you through your work day. Luke, the object of her desires, is an OB/GYN who volunteers at the student clinic every Tuesday. The hilarity begins soon after that opening scene of the book. Dry humor is sprinkled throughout the story; there is just enough humor to make the book fun without it taking over the romance/love story. Ms. Aston has paced her plot well. There is never a point where the story drags or goes off on a tangent. Each scene revealed something about the main characters. I liked that readers (and to some degree the main characters) had to think about what was revealed about a character and how that fit into the story instead of the author “telling” readers what it meant.

Overall, Wrong by Jana Aston is a great first outing by an indie author. I LOVED the humor in the story. I immensely enjoyed Sophie’s first pelvic exam. It will bring back memories for every female reader. I think I might have liked a dual perspective narrative as it would have added depth and forced further development of some character. Luke’s activities would have had to have been explored—many of the secondary characters are related to Luke. That said, being as surprised as Sophie made for a little more angst and surprise for the reader. The dialogue between the main characters was easy and believable. I didn’t like the more banal pet names (a pet peeve of mine and I didn’t think it fit with the character), but most readers won’t care. I would have loved to see Ms. Aston delve a little deeper into Luke’s and Sophie’s relationship. The characters have great sexual chemistry and their overall chemistry could have been explored more outside the bedroom. For example, Sophie tells Luke that she doesn’t understand why he loves her and Luke doesn’t respond. Frankly, as a reader (or Luke’s girlfriend), I want that answer. If Sophie had been a more secure character, I would have expected her to push for answers to all her (readers’) questions instead of letting Luke side step them.

A 4.5 star read for me.

A book only for the sex

The sex is hot, but we see little of characther development from Luke and Sophie is a little too stupid at times.

Uncomfortable with their age difference

Strange book - never learned anything about main characters but their sexual attraction to each other. Shallow storyline. End of book wrapped things up nicely though.

Boring

Boring story and extremely dirty talk is definitely not my thing... I think is offensive, not hot at all.

I was unaware

I was unaware that this story was a knock off of Fifty Shades of Grey when I purchased it as a recent Audible Daily Deal selection. I'm no prude, but as soon as I realized what was really going on, I kind of lost interest in the plot. The language is extremely unapologetic. Do college women really talk like this? Chiefs of Obstetrics? I guess anything goes in the bedroom, but instead of finding the story erotic, I thought it was just a little on the raunchy side. A little dirty talk is fine, but filthy? Not my cup of tea. Anywho... this story is kind of like 50 Shades meets Pretty Woman meets Grey's Anatomy meets Cinderella. But it's a cute, albeit impractical, storyline. At least there was no BDSM. Three cheers for that.

Disappointed

I was encouraged by all the five star reviews, but when I actually started listening I was very disappointed.

I felt the story was predictable, far fetched and, well, gross. I realize this is fiction, but I couldn't get past the fact that Luke was Sophie's gynecologist.

Plus, her reason for leaving her college boyfriend was lame if you consider that she was willing to have a sexual relationship with her doctor!

I wanted to like it. The dirty talk didn't bother me. The age difference between the main characters was fine too. I simply don't understand why everyone thought this story was so awesome.

I tend to not care for college-age stories because the characters and storylines are too immature for my taste.

The narration was good.

didn't like

I didn't like this story. I struggled to get past their age differences and felt like when she went in for the initial exam that it was just too weird and crossed a professional line. Kinda grossed me out

Funny, well-written, and great narration.

Luke and Sophie are one of the best couples I've read in a long time. Their chemistry was hot!! I love Luke's straight-forward and calm demeanor. Sophie was hysterical especially at the beginning of the story and interacting with her friends.
I loved Erin Mallon's narration. She was great in all her character portrayals and made everything flow smoothly.
I only gave the story 4 stars (as opposed to 5) because it seemed there were some holes left unfilled with Gina and also Luke's family....Not crucial to the plot, but would've been a little more satisfying. But overall I was happy with the plot and ending.
Definitely worth the credit for the laughs alone!!
