Dating the Wrong Mr. Right by Amanda Ashby

Coming back home to live in her small town was something that Pepper had never planned on. She also never planned on having strong enough feelings to kiss Ben Cooper.


Changing your mind and your heart doesn’t always mean your settling may it just means your evolving.


I think that Pepper made so many excuses for her life choices instead of just opening up about her feelings. She also imagined so much in her mind. She judged Ben without getting to know him.In Dating the Wrong Mr. Right, Pepper spent the majority of the novel putting words and opinions in Ben’s mouth. After so long is was a turn off. Also I hate that when the couple did spend time together the author breezed through it. I think that if the author spent more time on how awesome their time was together instead of focusing on the tug of war between them it would have been perfect.


The absolute best part of the novel was Ben Cooper. Ben was this cool guy and he was so relate-able. He was just a small town guy who’s crush came into town, and by the way she seemed to hate him. I loved that even thought the story revolved around Pepper’s sisters, it didn’t take over the novel.

My Thoughts:

I loved Amanda Ashby’s writing. After this novel I want to read more by her. I think she gave a refreshing twist to the hate to love trope. I would suggest this book to anyone looking for a light hearted romance. There were some deeper levels to the book. Both leads had insecurities which played out well. I wish there was a clear evolvement of the couples confidence in each other. I gave the book a 4/5 stars. I want to read more from Amanda.
