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?
Imagine being a barista at a coffee shop and having a major crush on one of your regulars. Not so hard to imagine, right? Well, what if you went into the local campus clinic to get a pap smear done, and your crush ends up being the gynecologist. Yeah, that pretty much happens to Sophie.
“Oh my God. My fantasy crush is a gynecologist. My gynecologist.”
I’ve been dying to read Wrong since I first laid eyes on it last year. The whole thing just sounded so ridiculously amazing that I knew I had to read it. I mean, could you imagine your gynecologist being the hot dude you’ve been crushing on? Going in for your lady exam is awkward enough, but I couldn’t imagine having a hot dude that I’ve been eyeballing being down there in my lady business. Eesh. Yeah, that right there got me wanting this book and that part of the book did not disappoint. I was laughing out loud so hard at some of the things happening to Sophie during her exam that I just lost it.
The relationship between these two was an interesting one. You have a virginal college student, and a much older doctor. While the two alone aren’t that much different from other stories I’ve read, I did enjoy that Luke is a obstetrician and gynecologist. He’s not just some playboy millionaire who is a CEO of some big company. He looks at vaginas all day. Which is a bit weird when you are picturing him as the leading man in the story.
The one thing I just couldn’t get past and what kind of ruined the story for me was how degrading Luke was to Sophie with his dirty talk. I mean, it’s one thing to call her a “dirty girl” and it’s a whole other thing to call her a “dirty hussy”, “little slut”, and a “filthy little bitch.” I’m sorry but that just rubbed me the wrong way. I know it was supposed to be sexy and erotic but instead it just came off as wrong. Oh. So. Wrong. And I don’t mean that to be a pun towards the title. I mean, this is a guy she’s only been with for a few weeks and he’s calling her these things. I just couldn’t get passed some of the things he called her while he initiated sex.
While I really loved the trope in this one, Luke’s “dirty” talk really ruined this book for me. I still enjoyed the story and I will check out the author’s other books eventually. I really hope that it was just Luke’s character and the other guys in the series don’t all think it’s okay to call their girlfriends a “filthy little bitch.”
Obviously my favorite part is the awkward gynecologist appointment. I mean, it’s the whole reason why I wanted to read this book in the first place. 😉
“’So you just like college students or something? So you volunteer?’ Oh, shit. I think I just accused him of being some kind of creep. I feel him pause. On my vagina. Because he’s touching my vagina as I accuse him of being into examining college girls. Help me.”
