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?

This story is so good! The entire series is just great - funny and characters are great with a wonderful narrator. Definitely one to listen to over and over again
"What a Debut Novel!"
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!
I loved Sophie. She is an excellent balance of insecurity, naiveté and poise.
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.
Can Mr. Right by so wrong?
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.
"Is Serving Coffee Considered Foreplay?"
A great start to a new series. It's cute, funny and sexy. I think every young college student should find the hot, sexy man of their dreams by serving him coffee -- right? Jana Aston weaved a great story by having the mature, dirty talking , sex god of a doctor fall for the dating impaired virgin. Add in her over zealous friend and the enjoyment ensues. Love the narration by Erin Mallon.
For the prudish, hot sex scenes included.
"HOT & FUNNY all in one book!!!"
I really enjoyed this book! I practically stayed up all night finishing it! I loved the honesty between these two! They had a very hot but also fun relationship!! I found myself laughing out loud at 3 am! This author did a great job at giving us as fairly short story (not short but not very long either) that didn't feel like an insta- love, was crazy hot and still gave us a great book with a complete story! That's not easy to find these days in a romance book! I'll be listening to more by the author for sure! Can't wait for Right!
Narration was great, even if I do love a dual narrated book, Erin Mallon did a great job on both parts. Great Choice!
"Who Knew "Wrong" Could Be Oh, So Right!"
Holly Molly! This was HOT! Sexy!! Steamy!!! And Just AWESOME!!! Wrong deserves all FIVE stars and then some! Jana Aston really delivered a steamy story that was funny, sexy and I plowed right through the first four books one right after the other. I LOVED Wrong!
Erin Mallon's performance was stellar! I would definitely listen to other audios narrated by her!
Well worth the time, and credit, but an even better whispersync deal!
"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.
"A definite future reread! It was everything!"
Most definitely because it really hit all the notes I love in a fantastic romance novel - humor, some pathos and steamy sex scenes all delivered superbly by narrator Erin Mallon.
Well I actually started with Right (Wrong #2), so I would say it compares favorably with it. In fact, Wrong is now my top favorite in the series so far. I've already started Fling (Wrong, #2.5), and it seems like another winner in the Wrong series.
Yes! Erin is one of my top favorite female narrators. I first discovered how talented Erin was when I reread the Sweet trilogy by Wendy Higgins via audiobook. Erin's performances are always top notch. I have zero complaints.
OMG, did it ever! I laughed my ass off or snorted in humor or amazement at the bald honesty so many times I lost count. It was very obvious early on that these two characters belonged together in spite of their age difference. And that epilogue was too funny and perfect, ha!
There were so many funny and sexy moments – Sophie's gyno exam (a requisite in order to get birth control pills) at the student clinic with Luke as her doctor; her first time (admittedly painful yet intense and hot); the smirk*a*licious cliché sex lines during the dorm make-out scene; the bathtub breast exam scene, etc. I could go on, but then I’d been spoiling too much. They worked well outside their sexy times as well, but I loved having a chuckle while being titillated during their sexy scenes so much. I couldn't resist doing an immediate mini re-read via my e-book copy. Needless to say, I highlighted and bookmarked the crap out of so many great scenes. I know I’ll binge re-listen to the entire series in the future because not only is the writing entertaining, but narrator Erin Mallon’s performance has been pure perfection.
it was awesome. consumed me until i finished!!!! funny and super sexy. Luke gives me life. sophie is super fun. can't wait for book 2.
"As always incredible narrative. "
Whew! There were so many things wrong with this book that it was sooo right!
What would you do if the guy you'd been crushing on turned out to be your gynecologist? I honestly can't say what I'd do but Sophie works with it and embraces her doctor fetish in ways that made me laugh out loud.
Dr Miller is all kinds of sinful and practically made me melt.
Loved every filthy minute of this.
"A Must Read‼‼‼"
Awesome book- this is fantastic for losing yourself in the story. So funny @ times you gotta Lol. Terrific narration- Erin Mallon does a Super job with the inflections in her voice. One of the best narrators ever👍5⭐️all the way.
"Great Narrator. No major climaxes or conflicts."
Parts of this made me giggle. The sex scenes were HOT. I love when authors don't use a bunch of euphemisms like the readers are too prude to handle sexual language. I do wish there were more unexpected plot twists. I had the ending figured out about 10% in.
This book is amazing so funny enjoy it worth a read can't wait for the next book x
"Sexy Gynaecologist meets Undergrad"
Great topic and story, loved the dynamic between these two. For me the best book of the series followed by fling.
Downright dirty in parts and laugh out loud funny.
"Brillian, funny and sexy"
I loved this book and the characters. The writing was funny and a bit daring. The sex was hot. Yes occasionally Sophie was a bit whiny but she's only 21. Give her a break. Plus, Luke s occasionally a sullen douche. But oh so hot. I could not stop listening to this. i mssed a da,ned dental appointment because I was up all night listening,
This book is not for prudes. If you don't like hearing about sex, especially anal sex then cover your dainty little ears. If you're a woman of the world and like it hot, this is the book for you.
just great loved the book and even better on audible Sophie and Lukes story is just great
