Title: Kissing Mr. Wrong
Author: Kerri Carpenter
Release Day: May 26th
Three months ago, graphic designer Vanessa Hewitt slept with the ridiculously hot guy she met after nearly falling to her death while stargazing on a bridge. The adrenaline-fueled night of we’ll-never-see-each-other-again sex fulfilled every fantasy, but with her best friend’s wedding on the horizon, Vanessa can’t stop thinking about what would happen if her sexy stranger passed through town again.
Haunted by his time in Afghanistan, soldier John Campbell returns to his sister’s town just long enough to help plan an engagement party for her. When he realizes her best friend is the sweet one-night stand he’s been fantasizing about for months, he’ll do anything to have her again…though getting trapped together in a storeroom wasn’t quite what he had in mind.
Vanessa is in hell. Or is it heaven? Because with every touch, their forbidden connection grows, until kissing Mr. Wrong starts feeling more like kissing Mr. Right…
I told your sister about your penis,” she blurted out.
“What?” His voice came out booming and surprised.
“I know, right? Ahhh.” She covered her face with her hands, spun in a circle, and then dropped her head on the bar.
“Why would you tell my sister about my penis? Wait, what did you tell her exactly?”
That last part held a certain curiosity inherent to males and their fascination with their special appendage.
“Nothing. I mean, I just told her…you know.”
“No,” he said. “I have no idea.”
“Just the usual stuff that girls talk about. Size, length…”
“What?” he choked out.
She threw her arms in the air. “Whatever. Guys talk about their hookups all the time.”
“Sure. But I have never once talked about the size of anyone’s vagina.”
She blinked. Twice. Despite the situation, Vanessa leaned back and laughed. Then she couldn’t stop. She laughed until tears started running down her cheeks and John’s own laughter joined hers.
After a few minutes, they calmed. “Vanessa,” he began, “I didn’t realize who you were.”
“Of course not.” Now she could feel a blush forming on her cheeks. “We didn’t really talk that much that night.”
“I don’t think it would have mattered though.”
Awwwww. “You don’t?” she asked quietly.
He shook his head.
“Jess is a big girl. I’m sure she’ll be fine with her best friend and her brother hooking up.”
This guy clearly didn’t understand females at all.
Kerri Carpenter began writing in her grandmother’s kitchen at the age of seven in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA. A life-long fan of reading, she got lost in the worlds of The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. She also assumed that everyone had characters and plots forming in their heads at all times.
During college, her mother gave her a copy of Nora Roberts’, Seaswept, and she didn’t stop reading until she’d blown through every other Nora Roberts book available. After graduating from Georgetown University, and working at The Washington Post and several nonprofit organizations, she began her freelance writing career. But she still continued to read romances. Since she couldn’t get enough of books with happy endings, she started writing her own.
Now, Kerri writes contemporary romances, usually set in small towns. She enjoys reading, cooking, watching movies, taking Zumba classes, rooting for Pittsburgh sports teams, and anything sparkly. Kerri lives in Northern Virginia with her adorable (and mischievous) poodle mix, Harry.
