Avoiding Mr. Right  
 A Walk on the Wild Side Book Two
                                        by  C.J. Ellisson


Synopsis:

Carla Johnson thinks issuing orders to a lover will keep her heart safe and leave her in charge of her own destiny. Afraid for Carla’s future, her best friend Heather implores her to change her self-centered ways, handing her a list of love life mistakes to steer clear of:

1. Casual Sex
2. Friends with Benefits
3. Avoidance of Intimacy

Carla ignores the list—unwilling to face she might have a commitment problem. Until she invites a co-worker to her place one night. She instantly regrets the hum-drum sexual encounter and discourages the accountant from pursuing her.

Andy Shea refuses to become another lover the feisty blonde dumps. It'll take a patient man with a strong hand to unlock Carla's sexual awareness and win her heart. He’s up for the challenge to convince her he’s the one—and eager to prove this number cruncher won’t make a boring bedmate
.


My review:


Rating 4 out of 5

The beginning of the book should have sucked me in, but it took me a few pages to get really into this hot and sexy novel. Once it sucked me in though, *Whew*, Momma needed some ice cubes! Sex wasn't the only message I got out of this book, I realized that I am reading a lot more books about women judging a book by it's cover or the guy by his job. My eyes sped through the book hoping she would learn that it is not about the guys job because that one aspect of him does not make who he is. Just like women are often judged by what we look like on the outside and that doesn't make who we are either. I loved the word play and banter that whipped through the book. The characters may have taken a bit to become whole for me but when they there was steam. Momma likes steam!
