Product Description

Product Description

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?

***This book is intended for audiences 18 years of age or older due to strong sexual content and language***

Warning: This book ends in a cliffhanger.

I absolutely loved this story !!
This was yet another fantastic novel from this author. Having now read numerous books by Alannah Carbonneau I can safely say she's one of my top go to authors and I will not hesitate to one click any new release she produces as I know I'm guaranteed an amazing few hours immersed deep in another world that she has magically created.

This story follows Nelena a young woman that on the day of her wedding realises her life isn't really her own. In a mad turn of events she flees her fiancé the supposed love of her life. In an attempt to find herself she heads for the bright lights of Las Vegas with her best friend in tow. Determined to live a little and be the Nelena know one expects her to be she throws caution to the wind and plays her wild card. Instead of looking for Mr Right she looks for Mr Right Now. Only she meets Mr Wright!!

Kade Wright isn't looking for anything permanent he's quite happy notching up conquests, that is until Nelena. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas right? ....but what happens if it's not that simple?

This book had me gripped from the start and so excited at how it developed I was so engrossed I didn't realise I was nearing the end then suddenly I was screaming !! The cliffhanger was upon me before I knew it and I'm left thinking Alannah Carbonneau you wicked wicked woman....I can't believe you shocked me like that !!
Omg I really really really can't wait for the next in the series ......please say it's not too long to wait !!

Amazing !!

"Life is messy, Nelena, and if you're going to get through it alive, you're going to need to learn to live in a mess."

It is no secret I am an avid fan of the author of this novel. This is my nineteenth read of her expansive catalogue and per usual, Alannah Carbonneau certainly did not disappoint me with Mr. Wright Now.

Our heroine Nelena is a young woman who was supposed to marry her boyfriend of four years, but in a twist of events and a sudden change of heart, she walks away from her soon to be husband. Falling into a depression, her best friend Kali, at the behest of Nelena's father, drags her to Las Vegas for a two week vacation.

Kade Wright is a sexy single dominant man with a troubled past who leaves Chicago and lands in Vegas as a performer after a terrible turn of events. He lives unapologetically and doesn't allow himself to fall for even the greatest of beauties after his ex did him over... That is until Nelena enters his life. What happens next, you will have to read Mr. Wright Now to find out!

In this Erotic Romance, Carbonneau paints a vivid picture of heartbreak, seduction and scenery. Her descriptive use of adjectives and characterizations to immerse you into the Vegas scene is flawless.

There is gut-wrenching sadness and heart-stopping romantic eroticism, laced with angst and dancing that will have you turning the pages fast and your heart racing even faster. I simply could not put this book down, so much that I read it in one sitting.

Carbonneau has storytelling down to a science which is one of the reasons why I enjoy her work so much. I also enjoyed the secondary characters and hope their story lines are expanded in the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wright Book for you-hot, romantic & emotional read! 7 April 2015
By RelentlessBookChic - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Mr. Right Now is the first of Allanah Carbonneau's books that I have read and I can honestly say that I will be reading more from her.

I was engrossed in this story from the very beginning. My heart was breaking as she described the feelings that Nelena was having as she made her way to the man she was to spend the rest of her life with. I was actually holding my breath anxious for her and to see what decision she would make.

When the story takes us to Vegas I was brought back to the time I spent there with how vividly the author describes the city. I remember seeing it for the first time so it was easy to see it through Nelena's eyes. It was also easy to feel the hesitation and reluctance she felt about being outside of her comfort zone. However, Nelena is tired of going through the motions of life instead of living it so she makes a vow to herself to experience life for the 14 days she is on vacation.

Enter Kade Wright a beautiful but broken man who breezes through life living loud but numb. He is very much physical in his life but he is missing emotionally. Can a one-night stand with an intriguing woman thaw his heart and in turn breathe life into her broken spirit.

Hero-Kade: 5 Stars
Heroine: 5 Stars
Plot: 5 Stars
Heat: 5 Stars
Cliffhanger: Hell yes

Summary: The book was well written, the story will capture you and not let you go until the very end. There was a lot of character development in the book. You could watch the relationships grow and fall in love with them as the story progresses. The side characters were likable and had some intrigue of their own ( maybe their own story??). It was hot, romantic, fast paced and emotional.

Relentlessbookchic approved & recommended.

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.

Well, well, well! What a surprise from the author of Donnelley Brother’s series. She has always been descriptive in the bedroom department but somehow managed to titillate us to extremes for those hot, steamy scenes. Not so here folks! When I jumped into the book, I didn’t have to wait too long before my reading glasses started steaming up! She’s changed her style and I like it… a lot. A storyline which is well-plotted can only be the recipe for a good read.

The heroine in this story has made a decision. And just in time, too! How she’s going to handle the consequences of a sham of a relationship with her cheating ex is quite brave on her part. A surprise trip organised by her bestie, Kali, to Vegas for two weeks conjures up an interesting scenario to say the least. In more ways than one, Nelena is quite the opposite of her worldly-wise… nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more friend!

Quote ~ Kali: "And we're going to find me a hot little woman who can bend her body in ways the Devil himself can't imagine."

Kali loves her like a sister and she refuses to sit back and watch her friend wallow in her sorrows. Even Lena’s father encourages her to let her hair down, so off they trot to sin city. Many a true word spoken in jest when Kali jokes about Lena finding the ideal Mr. Right to paint the town red with. Not only do Kali’s eccentricities abound and had me laughing out loud, but also her concern for Lena’s well being is foremost and well described.

Quote ~ Dad: "Letting loose won't kill you, Nelena. It'll help you live." He winked. "Take the advice an old man offers you."

Hmm, is Mr. Kade Wright Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong? This drop-dead gorgeous hunk of an Alpha male who happens to live and work as a professional dancer in Vegas, is an expert one-night-stander; a player in the first degree. He’s carrying enough emotional baggage around with him to sink a ship. However, sparks fly between them as soon as they set eyes on each other, and a super-hot, scorching no strings attached fourteen day fling kicks off with carnal lust! In spite the fact that their desires are insatiable, it is a really romantic love story with a twist and a half. Ooh, yes, and what a surprise Kade is in for!

Quote ~ Kade: "Why the ***k hadn't she told me?"

This highly erotic first book in the Wild Card series which overflows with impassioned thoughts and incredible banter, kept me on my toes so much that I read it in one sitting. In fact, as I really liked the secondary characters, Kali and Kade’s loyal friend, Allie, I was wondering if the author might even consider writing about them! Now the cliffy… it’s a biggy with a capital B. Regardless whether you shout and scream at your Kindle, the only option left is to play the waiting game for book two. The only tinsy winsy hitch in the book was I found it a little short. Apart from this minor issue, Ms Carbonneau deserves a hearty Bravo!

Quote ~ Kade: "Are you feeling reward, or punishment Red?"
4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the way this book hooked me and pulled me ... 9 April 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
I loved the way this book hooked me and pulled me in immediately. The bride, Nelena, has butterflies before walking down the aisle and can't put her finger on what they really mean. One look at her husband-to-be at the end of the aisle and she knows immediately what they mean. She can't marry him. He's looking everywhere but at her. Her groom is all about image and what he can do to move up the ladder. Realizing she is just a wrung on the way up makes her decision to walk away easier than she believed possible. The groom seals the deal when he believes it is because of an indiscretion with Nel's sister a week prior to the wedding. My favorite part of this book was the beginning- for once, the woman does not just get married because she feels like she has to. She takes care of herself and in a big way.

After wallowing for two weeks, her best friend and roommate, Kali, pushes her out of bed, into the shower and onto a plane for a trip to Vegas for 14 days. Her argument is that Nel needs to stop doing everything right all the time and let loose. She needs to find "Mr. Right Now" to occupy her mind and time while they are there. She should give up her hold on her virginity and show the world, and her ex, that she is a force to be reckoned with. Nel balks at first, but when she makes up her mind to give this a shot, she goes all in.

Enter, Mr. Kade Wright, a Vegas dancer and incredibly sexy, confident man who takes one look at Nel and wants to have her. He's got his own closet of past relationships and hurts, but if he ignores his past, it won't intrude on the present, right? His best friend and roommate, Allie, who is also his wingman and dance partner, is at his side when he spots Nel. She is surprised by his choice who seems plain and less sophisticated than he usually goes after, but steps back and goes to look for a conquest of her own. Allie and Kali, eventually meet and discover they share an attraction for each other, and though a great addition to the storyline, it is not the focus of the book. Instead, Nel and Kade grab your attention and hold it throughout.

He romances her and shows her how a woman should be treated by a man. One interlude in particular will have you flying right along with Nel. I will never look at a Vegas show the same way again. Hot! Nel fights it, saying he is just "Mr. Wright Now" and nothing more, but Kali sees her falling hard. So hard that when they hit a bump in the road and their 14 days are over, Nel leaves Vegas and Kade behind. Both Nel and Kade have some unresolved issues from past relationships that have thrown up huge obstacles. Are they too much to get over, or will they both learn from those past mistakes and move forward?

If you are not a fan of cliffhanger books, be forewarned. You are left with a heart wrenching cliffhanger and I admit to yelling at my iPad. I can't wait for book 2! Well written, great characters and cool twists kept me reading. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.
