Mr. Right Goes Wrong

No More Mr. Nice Guy Like a bad-choice-making boomerang, Mazy Gulliver has returned to her mom's tiny house in Brandt Mountain. But this time, she's got her teenage son, Tru, in tow and no intention of messing up ever again. Mazy's so determined to rebuild her life she hardly minds being the new loan collector, or even working for Tad, her ex (and Tru's dad, which—awkward). She's not here to make friends—or fall in love. Sweet, dependable Eli...

    If you're looking for a compelling story that will grab you and not let go until AFTER the last page, this is it. Why, you say? Read on. Hint #1: Mazy Gulliver has a bundle of baggage in her past that includes a crime and jail time, so she goes home with her 14-yr-old son to lick her wounds and get a job her baby daddy banker can't deny her. Hint #2: Tad, Tru's birth father, is a real jerk, and as a banker in town, he puts Mazy in charge of the b...

    Light funny read, sweet at times.Tru, Mazy's son is probably the best thing in the book, and Eli's relationship with his father.I didn't really agree with the storyline but the book was entertaining to read. This review is for a free copy courtesy of Harlequin via NetGalley

    This book should have been titled Ms. Good Writer Goes Wrong. While the author has penned many of my favorites (seven of her titles are DIK’s for me) this hot mess almost seemed like it had been written by someone else using her name.After thoroughly screwing up her life Mazy Gulliver finds herself pulling into her mother’s driveway with only a car full of possessions and her fourteen-year-old son Tru. As a woman who loves too much, too stupi...

    MR. RIGHT GOES WRONGPamela MorsiMiraAugust 2014Mazy Gulliver is through making horrible choices with men. All she wants is someone to love her and her teen-age son, Tru. Her last mistake ended with her doing community service hours in Delaware, and having to sell everything she owns to make restitution on said bad choices. Mazy and Tru move in with her mother, Beth Ann, in Brandt Mountain, North Carolina, where Mazy will find all the unconditiona...

    3.5 Stars. This was a roller coaster ride for me. I hated Mazy at first and found it really hard to connect with her. PM told me that she only had her son's best interest at heart and in some ways she did, but to me in the ways that counted she didn't. She let the men in her life drive her actions, instead of what was best for her son. But of course that was the whole focus of the book, so I kept that in mind as I read this book in one sitting. S...

    I'm a big fan of Ms. Morsi's from way back. I have read and loved all of her historical romances. I finally decided to try one of her contemporaries. "Mr. Right Goes Wrong" is, as one might expect, a book with smooth and lovely writing and I sailed right through it without ever wanting to put it down. The plot was quite tricky--how do you write a guy being am 'asshole' to his girlfriend without making the reader dislike him? How to you write a wo...

    Pamela Morsi has a gift. Better, she has many gifts, but for today I will speak only of two of them.First gift: in every book, she can write stories intertwined with everyday wisdom. Usually the source of this wisdom is old people, granparents or neighbours. She really can describe old people in a way that is real and vivid, non conventional, and she can show that in every single moment of our lives there is something to be learned, to be underst...
  • Kathy
    4.5 stars.Mr. Right Goes Wrong by Pamela Morsi is a wonderful novel about starting over and finding love when least expected. Next door neighbors and childhood friends Mazy Gulliver and Eli Latham have had a couple of ill-fated romances in the past, but with Mazy’s sudden return, is it finally their chance for lasting happiness? Or will Mazy’s past and Eli’s doubts destroy their future together?Moving back to her small hometown with her fou...
  • Becky
    This was my second book by Pamela Morsi, and I have to say I liked it just as much as the first (The Lovesick Cure)--that is to say, quite a bit!Second chance stories are always some of my favorite reads, and this one was no exception. Mazy and Eli were never really "together"--at least in her mind. Though he has loved her for years, he's always been her best friend and rebound guy. Even when the book started and Mazy moved back home and they fir...
  • Laylah
    Mr. Right Goes Wrong is another tale of bad boy/gal protagonist returning home to lick his/her wound with unrequited love interest devotely waiting through all those years in between. The said protagonist is Mazy Gulliver, a mother of a teenager son. She's an ex-con with a heart of gold. Only because of a major psychological trauma at a tender age, she's turned into stupid, lovesick, doormat kind of a girl who has been run over by many jerks, one...

    Sweet, romantic, light funny read :) This book is like every other hq romance book... 2 people (MC's) meet in the past, then about a couple of years later, meet in a small town, the same town (coincidence right?), the girl tries to avoid the guy, but the guy tries to make the girl like him, so they hang out.Then a situation happens, and they dot speak. Then their friends try to get them back together, and in the end the MCs notice they have chemi...

    Although it's still my most fervent hope to see Pamela Morsi writing historical romantic fiction again, that does nothing to lessen how good her contemporary stories are. It doesn't change the fact that I spent all day yesterday--when, believe me, I didn't have the time--reading MR. RIGHT GOES WRONG. Mazy's past presents her as almost an anti-heroine, but by the time you finish the first chapter, you'll know better; she's someone you probably kno...
  • Jolene
    What does a good guy do when he wants to be the one and only for the messed up girl he has always loved? He tries to be the bad boy she seems to crave. Maybe the bigger problem is he has a thing for a bad girl? There are complected problems for both characters that they need to work through before they can truly be in a real grown-up relationship. Love the setting and the support characters. Tru, the teen age son seems the most mature of the grou...
  • Griz Girl
    Pamela Morsi is a real hit-or-miss author...and sadly this book was a miss!I tried hard to enjoy the foibles of Mazy & Eli, but mostly I was just annoyed with both of them. Eli was a real jackass & I kept waiting & waiting & waiting for Mazy to grow a pair!I don't enjoy books with a last-2-pages happy ending...and after 398 pages of this book, it left a lot to be desired. Sadly, you just never know by the cover blurb if a book will be good or not...

    Rating 3.5 starsI read this the moment I got approved but sadly I was left wanting by this one. More soon!ARC provided by publisher through Netgalley.
  • Kathryn
    I very much enjoyed this book and read it almost in a day, it kept calling to me - the plot had me engaged and the characters were endearing.
  • Nightwitch
    The writing was good and I appreciated that Morsi avoided over-the-top drama - everyone felt very real, both good and bad characters - but the initial premise, in which the hero acts like a jerk and the heroine makes excuses for him because she's attracted to bad boys, just left a bad taste in my mouth and I couldn't quite get past that. I mean, I'm glad that it was as much about the hero learning how to be a better person as it was about the her...

    Not as good as the others in the series. Both the hero and the heroine suffer from convoluted thinking! Not as good as the others in the series. Both the hero and the heroine suffer from convoluted thinking! 😆
  • Maria Waltner
    I hated all the main characters. They all made bad, stupid choices. Repeatedly. The villain was believable at least. And all the more hated. The redeeming parts were all won by the side characters. The son. The newly acquired best friend. The mother and father of the "heroine" and "hero" respectively.
  • Hilcia
    Pamela Morsi is a favorite writer whose Americana historical romances I dearly love. In Mr. Right Goes Wrong, Morsi's latest contemporary romance, she takes two people whose lives are made up of mistakes and bad choices and gives them the chance to prove to themselves and each other that change is possible.Mazy Gulliver has been a doormat and a slave to love her entire adult life. She has chosen one wrong man after another with disastrous results...
  • Annalisa Gatti
    I love the romance genre. I’ve spent some time trying to hide that fact, but I’m now welcoming it with open arms. So here we go. I had previously read Pamela Morsi’s Love Overdue, about a librarian in a small town. Oh, it was so great, I naturally assumed that I would like Mr. Right Goes Wrong. The synopsis didn’t really interest me at first - I’m not crazy about romances where one of the main characters has a kid so I worried about how...

    Okay so I wasn't sure about this book for a bit, did I like it? Hate it? I'll settle for somewhere in the middle with a 2.5 rating.The thing is, the storyline is interesting and I definitely found Mazy to be a unique character - but not a very good one. I liked Eli as a person, but when he was going 'wrong', I just hated him. The only character I really loved would be Tru, Mazy's son.Now, the thing is, Eli is convinced that because he's always be...
  • Anne Holly
    I will start by saying that I think it was fairly brave of the author to try something this different in a romance. Having the hero intentionally act awful, so awful he not only starts to convince himself but makes us dislike him, was a risky move. I wanted to say I respect that daring. However, I also feel it backfired, as I really didn't like this character, at all. He starts out being a crappy MRA moaning about how "girls hate nice guys like m...
  • Michele
    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars ‘He did enjoy being the jerk, he was willing to admit that. But he didn’t want to be that guy forever, did he? He liked being himself. Couldn’t he love her that way? And if he couldn’t, was it really worth it?’Mr. Right Goes Wrong was honestly not exactly what I was expecting after I read the book blurb. Instead of seeing nice guy Eli become a bit edgier and bring out his inner bad boy, I was surprised when he b...
  • Chelsea Klepfer
    Such an entertaining read. Nice guy Eli Lathum is tired of coming in last when it comes to his lifelong love, Mazy Gulliver, a woman who always falls for the wrong guy. When Mazy suddenly moves back into town with her teenage son, Tru, Eli decides it's time to take drastic measures and channel his inner bad-boy to try to win her heart for good. Morsi does a great job transforming Eli from "boy-next-door" into "first-class jerk" when he's out with...

    I always enjoy Pamela Morsi's books and this one didn't disappoint!Eli is the nice guy who gets the idea that nice guys finish last in Mazi Gulliver' eyes and decides to give the lady what she wants.Mazy is just hoping to get back on her feet after getting suckered by a steady stream of jerks. Soon the childhood friends are striking sparks, but Eli may take playing the jerk too far and Mazy not the same girl she was. Morsi makes watching two peop...
  • Lisa
    I received this book free from the Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This book was very funny. Mazy Gulliver had a bad reputation when she was younger. She comes back home with her son, Tru, looking for a job. She ends up working for her ex-lover as a debt collector. Eli Latham. a former friend has always had a crush on her. Since he knows she likes bad boys, he recreates himself into a bad boy. The problem is that Maz...
  • Jae
    An OK read. Just didn't get blown away as I expected. First I didn't like the heroine much then I pitied her then I felt sorry for the hero and later on I hated him. Jeez people, get your crap together. And some issues were not addressed/answered in the epilogue. Like what happened to Eli's father, Tru's relationship with his sperm donor and did he even change his name? Bugged me whenever loose ends were not tied together. Still, I LOLed a few ti...
