Falling for Mr. Wright by Robyn Neeley: Although Ryan’s heartbreak happened nearly a decade ago when his fiancé left him two weeks before the wedding, Ryan refuses to ever enter a relationship again. Except then he meets Sarah, the office’s executive assistant and his office lunch buddy, and she’s the first woman to fully tempt him.
But Sarah wants Logan, his boss and best friend, and she brings in Ryan to help her woo Logan. Ryan only goes along because he thinks Sarah will notice him beyond the office buddy role. He can’t offer her forever, even if he sometimes wants to, but he can at least give her passion.
Sarah wants forever and her boss Logan strikes her as that kind of guy, even though it’s her friend Ryan who really attracts her attention. And when she goes with him to his class reunion, and they kiss for the first time, Sarah is shaken by the strength of her attraction – and for the first time she isn’t so sure Logan is the man for her.
This story does hold a bit of bad behavior – on a date with one guy only to leave with another – that I don’t particularly appreciate, however the passion and love between Ryan and Sarah was apparent and powerful.
I really liked both Ryan and Sarah. She was bright, bubbly, and positive. Overall, just enjoyable. Ryan had a bit more angst, but I liked him all the same. Their worst character traits came out in their inability to communicate and just let their feelings be known. Now that led to a lot of annoyance on my part because that was the main conflict towards the end.
For those who love a friends to lovers romance, I highly recommend Falling for Mr. Wright. There’s a bit of silly plotting, but it’s mostly the strong connection between Sarah and Ryan.
