The Wrong Man PDF, ePub eBook No commitments. No expectations. No way this could possibly go wrong…right? Former special-ops soldier Sam Brand is used to getting what he wants. What he wants is to unbutton the buttoned-down, sweet, and shy Dahlia McGregor. He’s hot to find her wild side. She’s eager to let him explore it. So he makes his proposition—no strings, no hurt feelings, and no promises—save for No commitments. No expectations. No way this could possibly go wrong…right? Former special-ops soldier Sam Brand is used to getting what he wants. What he wants is to unbutton the buttoned-down, sweet, and shy Dahlia McGregor. He’s hot to find her wild side. She’s eager to let him explore it. So he makes his proposition—no strings, no hurt feelings, and no promises—save for one: she’ll have the time of her life. After a broken engagement, Lia’s looking to someday find the right man and settle down. That’s some day. Now it’s all about the night. A hot, meaningless fling with a magnificently weathered blue-eyed stud like Sam couldn’t hurt: he’s sexy, and sure he’s arrogant, but best of all, he’s here. In other words, he’s perfect…for now. But when Sam is wounded in the line of duty and left in Lia’s tender loving care, all bets are off. Because the more time they spend together, the more it becomes clear: this “one night” deal is getting steamier and lasting longer than they counted on. It started as a fun little game. Is it possible they could be playing for keeps?

It pretty much took off right where the last book ended and dove RIGHT into the flirty-dirty fun, which I always find refreshing and fun. I really liked Sam and Lia as characters, both independently and as a couple. Their banter was great. Definitely recommend if you are in the mood for a sexy, lighthearted, "friend to lovers-esque" romance.

The Wrong Man had everything I love in a Natasha Anders story - highly charged chemistry and obstacles between the hero and heroine & lots sexy goodness! “Hello there, Miss Priss,” he greeted softly, his eyes taking in her cap-sleeved, knee-length, sky-blue dress with the high neck and slightly flared skirt. “You’re looking very pretty and proper this evening, and you know what that does to my blood pressure.” When are these McGregor girls going to learn that casual flings never stay casual for them? Now that the Carlisle brothers have found their happily ever afters with 2 of the three McGregor sisters, I was very excited to read Brand and Lia’s story. I had browsed a few early reviews (I know, I know, I shouldn’t have) so I was nervous that I wasn’t going to like Brand, but I’m so happy that wasn’t the case. On the surface, Lia and Brand’s arrangement was only a no-strings fling. I fully expected Lia to get emotionally entangled from the get go, but it was surprising how attached Brand got in such a short amount of time. I really liked both of these characters and I loved them together. Lia’s quirky personality and verbal diarrhea were hilarious! I hated how her family seemed to assume the worst of her and criticize her choices instead of actually getting to know what her dreams and plans were. To be fair, though, she kept a lot to herself. “You’re engaged?” he asked, thankfully letting her weird little fiction about Daisy and Mason’s possible future children slide. “Well, not yet. But soon.” “Yeah?” His face was like granite and revealed not a single emotion. Not even pain. That was some feat, considering how protectively he was hunched over his arm. “Who’s the lucky guy?” “I haven’t really met him yet,” she said, feeling increasingly self-conscious. I liked Brand from the moment he entered a scene. Even when he was being a douche, I was still on in because seemed so vulnerable when it came to Lia. I especially liked his interactions with the people about town as he followed Lia on her many errands. We got to see how Daisy and Daffodil, the other two MgGregor sisters were making out in this story. Daffodil’s dislike for Brand, especially given his “take no shit” response to her was awesome. Their personalities were so similar that it didn’t surprise me how they bumped heads all the time. The only time they seemed to come together was in protection of Lia, from her her horrible suitors. “Me? Ask her creepy boyfriend, Ichabod Crane. He’s the one who came slithering over and embarrassed her in front of half the town.” “Icha—wait, do you mean Grantley Marsh?” Daff asked Sam with wide eyes. “Gregory,” Lia corrected automatically.” Though we did see some angst during the story, I loved how it turned around at the end. Great read!!

Stars! I have loved each and every book in the Alpha Men series. Seeing the McGregor sisters meet and fall in love with their men through each book has been total reading pleasure. "Any time you want to rip my clothes off… I’ll be right here waiting." And we finally get to Dahlia, Lia for short. If you have read the previous books you know exactly at what point of her life she currently is, initially the first sister to meet and marry her man, it soon became apparent in book one; The Wing Man that she was potentially walking up the aisle with the wrong guy. Luckily for her she discovered what a douche he was before any vows were exchanged, and has spent the intervening couple of years coasting along while she tries to decide what to do with her life, and watching her sisters meet and fall in love with their own men. He was way too… everything. Too sexy, too arrogant, too male, and way too alpha. One thing that wasn’t on her check-list, was to do one of the guests at her sister; Daisy’s wedding… several times in fact! Six months on, and Sam Brand the guy she thought she would never see again is suddenly back in town, and not for a flying visit either, but for a good few months of recuperation after a close protection job goes a bit awry, and he ends up with a few stab wounds and broken bones too boot. Seeing her again… had reminded him how bizarrely hot he found that button-down librarian thing she had going on. Typical male that he is, Mr. Brand does not a good patient make, and as I have come to expect with Ms. Anders (Anti)Heroes, he takes a little warming too. The dual POV does help massively help with that though, because although he is definitely the type of guy you’d love to hate some of the time, and a guy that you hate that you love on occasion as well, there is also a deep fissure of vulnerability running through him. And as the story progresses, you see it’s not necessarily commitment and relationships he is wary of, it’s more of a case that as a strong confident, Alpha male, he doesn’t want to admit to his absolute inexperience in such matters, so tends to avoid them instead. "You’re the proverbial rolling stone… I’m looking for a rock. Someone steady, reliable, interested in establishing some roots…" But Lia isn’t a Fling type of girl, even though they both insist at the beginning of things that, that is what it is between them, and rules are firmly laid out to be adhered to in relation to their shenanigans to prevent any emotional attachments occurring. But the heart wants what it wants, and what initially started out as a black and white frenemies-with-benefits type arrangement quickly begins to get awfully blurred lines, when the rules start being broken, inadvertently and on purpose. "I want you back in my bed. For however long I find myself here…" As with a lot of this author’s male characters, I love the way Sam tried to do the right thing or a nice thing, but went completely the wrong way about it, it makes the heart strings twang reading of a confident guy fumbling around in the unknown to try and impress, or show a woman that he cares about them, and Natasha gives great voice to them when doing so as well. "I didn’t take you for a cuddler…" I think Sam and Lia are both characters you are going to either love or hate, as they are both pretty extreme but in an opposites attract kind of way. Sam is a crass, blunt (almost too blunt at points) straight-shooter, who pleases himself, says it how he sees it, kind of guy. Sexual frustration, combined with constant pain and discomfort, were not conducive to charm and good behavior… Whereas Lia, is a people pleaser, happy-to-help, prim, never a raised word, kind of woman, looking for a husband, family and commitment. Yet somehow together they work, even when they didn’t work, they still did, if you know what I mean! "You were my rebound guy." Loved this book, adored the series in general, getting to catch up with Daisy & Mason as well as Daff and Spencer was great too, and I really appreciated the fact the author gave them all a good send off with the epilogue. Cannot wait too read more from her in the future! It meant more… ARC generously provided by the author in exchange for the above honest review.

I knew when Sam first graced the pages in The Best Man that he was going to be my favorite Alpha Man. After finishing this book, I can also tell you that it was my favorite in the series!

While I can 4 STARS I was your rebound guy, now let me be your final fling guy. Let me be the last wild thing you do before you settle down.”. I knew when Sam first graced the pages in The Best Man that he was going to be my favorite Alpha Man. After finishing this book, I can also tell you that it was my favorite in the series! I love a good unrepentant womanizing alphahole, and Sam definitely brought his A-game as the commitment phobic alpha with a sharp tongue and no small lack of insults. While I can see that he may not be a hero for everyone's likes, he definitely did it for me and I couldn't wait to see him fall for the sweet and proper Lia. Dahlia was a heroine I wasn't sure I'd like, but ended up absolutely loving. She's sweet, thoughtful, innocent, but not overly naive. This was definitely a formula that worked for me. She's the sweetest of the three McGregor sisters, and I was rooting for her from the very beginning. After her engagement to an a-hole of epic proportions goes up in flames, Lia gives into something that's completely out of character for her; a one-night fling with a womanizer that she never expects to see again. Sam makes no secret of his love-them-and-leave-them preferences, and he makes it crystal clear that he will never be Mr. Right. Lia is determined to find her forever man, and when a series of catastrophic (yet comedic) dates leave her disillusioned and giving up, seeing Sam again make her willing to pick right up where they left off. Sam never expects to be back in the small town or to see Lia again. But when his job leaves him wounded and unable to fend for himself, what better way to heal that to hire the beautiful Lia to care for him and take the opportunity to try to lure her into his bed once more. I loved the combination of Lia's sweetness and Sam's snark. These are two characters that don't really make sense on paper, and yet their chemistry is off the charts. I loved seeing Lia slowly cave to Sam's alluring nature and Sam slowly fall unwittingly for Lia's sweet and endearing one. What starts off as a fling to scratch an itch soon begins to turn into something so much more for both of them. Natasha Anders crafted two incredibly well-developed characters with this book. As much as you want to hate Sam for the things he does and says, you simply can't. You see just enough of his vulnerable side that he keeps cleverly hidden behind a smart-mouthed persona to know there's a lot more to him than the initial playboy that meets the eye. The Wrong Man had a little bit of everything; humor, steam, and plenty of emotion. It was incredibly satisfying. And even though I wanted Sam to work for it a little harder at the end, I couldn't help but love their HEA. The epilogue was especially wonderful. It was the perfect conclusion to the series and it couldn't have ended with a better book. ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest review Find me on:

Sam's unconventional upbringing colored his view on monogamy and marriage and Lia's dreamed of nothing but her one true love since she was old enough to know about those things.

When Sam su Rating: 3.5 Stars Dahlia aka Lia and Sam were cute together. They both appeared such polar opposites emotionally speaking and they both had drastically different end goals in life. Sam's unconventional upbringing colored his view on monogamy and marriage and Lia's dreamed of nothing but her one true love since she was old enough to know about those things. Their story is about letting go on the past, learning about oneself and evolving/adapting to new life choices and circumstance. When Sam suffers a serious injury and needs time to lay low, away from the crazy media - he finds himself back in Lia's hometown. Suddenly hiding away doesn't seem so boring if it means Sam gets Lia back in his bed. Lia is the straight lace sister. She never steps out of line and always does what's expected. But all that's gotten her is a broken engagement and zero prospects in the husband department. When she gives in to one okay, two wild hook ups with Sam, she's ready to savor the memories but leave it as a one and done deal. But when she finds herself helping him out, it's all too easy to agree to a short lived fling while he's here. This had a little bit of a love/hate vibe going on and also a friends to lovers feel to it. Sam and Lia were a yummy confusing mess. Their chemistry was explosive, their budding friendship was cute and their up and down love story entertaining. It had a lot of funny moments between the MCs, between the sisters and between a few other side characters that kept the story light. It also had a few WTF moments mostly regarding Lia's stubborness and Sam's A-whole attitude the few times he panicked or felt cornered. What I liked: The story developed over a decent amount of time. Both Sam and Lia had to grow and evolve. It wasn't insta-love for either one of them and it was refreshing to see them both pursue the other at times. What I didn't like: Beginning-of-the-book Sam. He was such a jerk! This may just be me being nit-picky but it bothered me that Sam didn't think much of Lia in the months after their wedding hook-up. Truthfully, he hadn't given her much thought at all since their torrid encounter at Daisy and Mason's wedding. It would definitely be fair to say he'd almost forgotten about her entirely. That put a damper on the whole romance aspect of their relationship. Personally I like when the H/h leave an undeniable impression of the other, especially when there's a significant period of time apart. Sam hasn't seen Lia is 4 months and although we later find out he remained celibate during their separation it looses some of it's importance when the reasons for staying unattached had nothing to do with his h. And his obnoxious self emerges yet again when he reflects on his expectations of Lia. He left me feeling a little stabby! Predictably, she blushed, and Sam refrained from rolling his eyes. He didn't want her to be predictable. Predictability was tiresome, and he needed Lia to be interesting, exciting. He needed her to surprise him and keep him on his toes. Yeah, Sam was one conceited and arrogant little bastard at the start of this. Luckily for him, the author was able to redeem him. He is a complicated man but then again so was Lia. They balanced each other out and I think that watching Sam with Trevor and the senior community helped a lot. Memorable Moments: Lia’s family was amazing. I loved her dad. ”You don’t need a man to take care of you. You’re quite capable of being the captain of your own fate.” And Daff is pretty freaking amazing too! ”You don’t need an excuse, Lia. All you have to do is tell him no. And if he doesn’t listen, knee him in the groin.” Spencer was awesome too. Spencer with Daff? Swoon-worthy and hilarious! The whole ‘Manscaping’ thing was sweet and comical all rolled into one :) Would I recommend? Yes. I loved all the bantering and back and forth between them. The sexual tension was there in spades and both characters were memorable and likable. * * * ARC provided for an honest review * * * I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. SAFETY INFO: (view spoiler)[ Ages :Lia is 32 and Sam is 34. Neither are virgin. Cheating : None. (Although the whole Lally and Sam rumor mill thing did sort of lead to implied cheating. He lets Lia believe he broke up with Lally but left room for a possible reconciliation, it was all a lie but still wrong.) OM/OW drama : Mild OW drama. Sam doesn't come clean about false rumors he is dating the pop star that he was protecting on his last assignment. He thinks if Lia believes its true it would keep her from "falling in love" with him. When he realizes that he messed up and he want's Lia for more than just a fling, he comes clean. It does create some drama between them but it's not dragged out. Separation : Since the wedding and their first hook-up, there is a four month separation. Lia and Sam both remained celibate. Push/Pull : Sam doesn't believe in love/marriage and Dahlia makes no secret of the fact that she wants that one day, so they are polar opposites and both push/pull at times. Main Pursuer of relationship : Sam is the main pursuer. Possible Triggers : Friends with Benefits arrangement, lying, jerk Hero, dating others while having feelings for each other (on page, h). HEA/HFN : Ends on a HEA and an adorbz epilogue 5 years later that ties all the sisters HEA together. (hide spoiler)]

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    I really enjoyed this book. I have to say it's a bit of a surprise with how much I enjoyed it based off the Hero. I am not a fan of jerk heroes. I don't like it when they are mean or mistreat the heroine. When they are, that usually means I end up not liking the book, hence my surprise. There just must be something about this authors writing. If Sam wasn't such a jerk, this book would have been a five star read for me. I even find myself wanting to give excuses for his behavior, but I will refra I really enjoyed this book.

If Sam wasn't such a jerk, this book would have been a five star read for me. I even find myself wanting to give excuses for his behavior, but I will refrain. You should know going in that he's just an ass. I should probably state why I feel that way about Sam. Well, he's the playboy hero who is allergic to commitment. He doesn't believe in marriage or even staying with one person for a length of time. He feels this is ok because he always lets his conquest know the deal. If they fall in love with him, it's their fault and he won't be nice about getting them out of his life. Classy. To me he just came off very arrogant, rude and selfish. And yet....man is this killing me to say it, but I still liked him and wanted him with Lia. Man, did that make me cringe but it's true. Lets talk about something nice. Like Lia. I loved her. A character like her can borderline on being annoying but I never thought that of her. Again, I'll give kudos to the author for this. Lia was very prim and proper. A throw back to the 50's house wife and I loved that about her. She seemed genuine and I genuinely loved her character. I didn't like that every guy she tried to date was a total loser. I think Sam deserved to feel threatened with a real guy that could take her from him. I'm not sure whey the hero always have beautiful women chasing them but the heroine's have the lowest of losers. Final thoughts. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it. Just go in knowing that Sam is a jerk. ARC provided by NetGalley.

Maybe it's because The Wrong Man is ALL THE THINGS I've come to expect from Natasha Anders but have never recieved all in one book before! This book has all the humor, heart and sweetness of The Wingman blended perfectly with the brutal pleasure pain of The Unwanted Wife. The cutting words and the unwillingness to commit by our brooding alpha male evolve seamlessly into a steamy yet reluctant romance between him and the eldest McGregor sibling... and it is everything my angst-loving, romance-craving heart could've hoped for.  This book was such a treat. I've been wholly consumed by the McGregor sisters and their perfectly imperfect romances for three solid standalone books. And while I've throughly enjoyed them all, I have to admit that I missed the angsty pleasure pain of Anders' previous work where she so masterfully created roguish noncommittal alpha jerks with sharp tongues and cold emotions. (Yeah, I'm THAT reader.) So it came as such a thrilling surprise when, almost immediately, it became clear that Sam Brand was one of those guys. He can be so cold and hurtful and insensitive at times, which only made me desperate to turn each page and see his walls inevitably crumble. Let me just tell you, when glimpses of the hero beneath that alpha jerk facade began to appear, The Wrong Man turned out to be even better than I hoped. I found myself unexpectedly laughing out loud throughout this novel. The writing is so sharp and witty, so perfectly peppered with such smart humor. But my heart broke often, just the way I like it, with the deliciously brutal war of emotions growing more and more complicated as the story evolved. I was as consumed by the romance as I was by the angst, by the most heart stopping declarations and the intense, swoony feels. From beginning to unbelievably satisfying end, I was swept away by Sam and Dahlia and it was everything I could've hoped for and so much more. The Wrong Man is gut wrenching and emotional, it's joyful and fun, it's steamy and so heartfelt, and the epilogue is the most satisfying way to send off this unforgettable cast of characters. I adored this story and I adore this author's work even more having read it. I can't recommend The Wrong Man enough.

    I've read several and loved the author's other books. Maybe I missed a better picture of the heroine/hero by not reading the previous books in this particular series? I didn't find her "swearing" (crumbs!) cute or how prissy and appalled she was he was hitting on her after they'd had sex. Then suddenly she can't control herself. Unfortunately, I didn't make it past the first two chapters as it wasn't working for me. I received a copy of the book through NetGalley for an honest review.

Somehow, they come to an arrangement to just be a fling until he leaves town. Somewhere along the way, they both learn to bend their expectations. I loved this series and this installment. Sam is a love-em and leave-em type, but he is also pretty honest and a very generous lover. Dahlia is so wrapped up in what she thinks she wants in life, that she's forgotten to actually look for happiness. It was so much fun to see them come together (and pretty hot too). Smut factor is a 4/5. I'm a little sad that I think the series is over (there aren't any more sisters, so???), I will have to keep an eye out for more from this author.

Her books aren't complicated and I'm not saying that as a bad thing. Her books are easy, easy to read and very easy to get sucked right into.

Her writing style draws me in each time and the flow of her books just works for me. I have read both books one and two in the series so I knew what this book would be about and I have to say I loved every minute of it. Dahlia was engaged and ready to be married till she learned what kind of man her ex was. Growing up in a the family Dahlia was the pretty one and always knew she would get married and have kids so when that plan fell through and her sisters found mean and fell in love Dahlia started to re-evaluate her life and her goals. Seeing Sam at her sisters wedding and before the wedding Dahlia did something she would never even think of and slept with Sam. Sam is cocky and a ladies man he also worked hard to get where he is. Seeing Lia Sam thinks she's beautiful and knows he wants her...for the night. When Dahlia agrees they have an amazing time and because he can't get enough they also find time to get away after the wedding. But Sam doesn't do relationships. Then Sam is injured at work and has to relax and recover. Going to his friends(Mason) cabin Sam hopes that the beautiful Dahlia will agree to spend some time with him again. Lia can't believe she is seeing Sam again but quickly realizes he needs help and agree's. When Sam keeps pestering her to have another fling with him while he is in town Dahlia agrees. With rules set to keep her heart out of it Lia and Sam set out to have some fun but the more time they spend together the more they begin to actually like the person the other is and then it becomes hard to keep their feelings out of it. But Sam doesn't want anything more and Lia wants new things in life. Thats what they each told the other, but do they really. I have really enjoyed this series I loved all the sisters and the men they fell in love with. After reading them all I'm not sure which book is my favorite. Sam is brass and very cocky Lia was hurt and seeking a life of her own and they fell in love with a person they never thought they would. This is a great book and I loved reading it. It's one of those books that just works and you just want to pick up again once you have set it down. The Wrong Man is a perfect summer read, it's light and fun while at the same time has a great hero stumbling into love and not knowing how to handle it. A strong smart girl who finds herself and the love of her life. I loved seeing Sam being possessive and then being shocked with his self after because thats so out of character for him. I can't believe this series is over already, and the author does a great job wrapping it all up by the way. I can't wait to see what book comes next. *Thank you Natasha Anders, NetGallery and Montlake Romance for this book.

    totally believable romance between a world travelling commitment phobe and a sweet girl who was looking for the whole white picket fence thing. Solid writing, great characterization, pretty solid plot aside from one minor quibble at the end. I continue to enjoy this author.

    5 Stars I like the first book of this series a lot but the second one was a little bit difficult for me because I couldn't understand the h.

Is this the most original book in the world? No. Is it one of the stories that reminds me of why I like this genre? Hell, yes! The Wrong Man is a really great book if you like old fashioned love stories. There's nothing new here but it's done so well. Give it a try :)

    I am so glad that I didn’t not finish this! Surprisingly, of the three books in this series, this is my second favorite of the three. I hated Sam Brand right when we met him at the end of book two. No means no and I don’t think he was being endearing to Lia. It didn’t come off as a nice meet-cute. It was cringeworthy, in my opinion, because he was an a real jerk. A total player that even in romance novel fashion didn’t seem to have any redeeming qualities.

But I kept reading because I enjoyed getting more glimpses of Spencer and Daff from book 2. Lia annoyed me too... I agreed with Sam about her primness being ridiculous. But as they got to know each other, I started to warm up to both characters. She handled herself well - I think how she tried so hard to be aloof knowing that he’s a player was great. I enjoyed seeing their relationship blossom despite them trying. I’ve said it before but this author seems to have a knack for developing characters. They are real - flawed yet evolving. I look forward to reading more of her books. Writing is for sure a 5 star rating. 3 stars because of the plot not being my favorite.

    I enjoyed this one! The Hero's attitude pissed me off, he's an a$$ that's for sure. But the heroine is adorable! I love how she tried her best to BE her best. It's relatable. It's been a while since the last time I read Natasha Anders's book and I miss it. This one is not her best but I always love the chemistry and the writing. Will read more!

Poor Dahlia, all she wants is to love and take care of someone. She was engaged to be married until she found out that her controlling fiancee was also trying to blackmail her sister into sleeping with him. She gave up her job at his behest and since then she hasn't managed to get a full-time job. Instead she spends her time doing good. Entertaining at the senior centre, reading to children at the library, volunteering at the animal sanctuary etc. Her clothing reflects her homebody personality, all cardigans, longer dresses and buttoned up collars. The set up for this book takes place in the previous book but in a nutshell, Lia acts totally out of character and has a one night stand with Daisy's future husband Mason's former business partner Sam Brand at the mixed hen and stag nights. Then, despite her best intentions she did it again at the wedding. Having only slept with the cheating fiancee before Sam, she is horrified at her lack of judgement, particularly because Sam Brand is a foul-mouthed, over-confident, brash man who she dislikes intensely. Sam gets injured saving a pop star from a deranged stalker. Desperate to escape Hollywood. London and the paparazzi he asks Mason if he can stay at his cottage in South Africa, little even thinking that he might run into prissy princess Dahlia in town. truth be told he'd forgotten all about her and their one night stand. But then Dahlia is pushed into preparing the cottage for his arrival and is a witness to his inability to do the simplest of things like pour a drink or dress himself with his dominant arm in plaster. Irritable, in pain and bored, Sam decides it would be fun to get prissy Dahlia to act as his cook/ cleaner/ driver for a few weeks while he simultaneously tempts her into another torrid encounter in the sack. When I read the start of this in the previous book The Best Man I hated it. I hated Sam and Dahlia seemed too prissy for my tastes. Boy was I wrong! I just love me a bad boy meets a goody two shoes story and this was a brilliant example. Sam never lost his foul mouth or his crudity, right up to the end he said some things which were just awful and (almost) unforgivable. In fact the only reason I forgave him (as a character) was because he seemed to be equally as horrified by what he said. Dahlia grew on me, from the sort of po-faced, do-gooder with an obsession about getting married that I love to hate she turned into one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest (and sexiest) heroines I've read in a long time. After the angst-fest of the last book, this is back to the sparkling, frothy, delightful novels that I love from Natasha Anders. I devoured every page with glee. I loved all the characters and nothing felt contrived. A winner. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review. Bumped for release.

Former special-ops soldier Sam Brand is used to getting what he wants. What he wants is to unbutton the buttoned-down, sweet, and shy Dahlia McGregor. He’s hot to find her wild side. She’s eager to let him explore it. So he makes his proposition—no strings, no hurt feelings, and no promises—save for one: she’ll have the time of her life. After a broken engagement, Lia’s looking to someday find the right man and settle down. That’s some day. Now it’s all about the night. A hot, meaningless fling with a magnificently weathered blue-eyed stud like Sam couldn’t hurt: he’s sexy, and sure he’s arrogant, but best of all, he’s here. In other words, he’s perfect…for now. But when Sam is wounded in the line of duty and left in Lia’s tender loving care, all bets are off. Because the more time they spend together, the more it becomes clear: this “one-night” deal is getting steamier and lasting longer than they counted on. It started as a fun little game. Is it possible they could be playing for keeps? No commitments. No expectations. No way this could possibly go wrong…right? "5-I won't settle for anything less Stars!" This book had so many things about it that I liked and one of them being Dahlia McGregor's character and how she grew from being a woman who was so used to being a person everyone expected her to be, to a woman who became self-confident, stood up for herself, and someone willing to have a "fling" that she set the rules for. I also really liked Sam Brand's character. I liked how he grew from a man who was happy to not have any commitments to a man who could see himself wanting more... with Dahlia. This was a wonderful story with complex characters and a journey that was difficult, but so worthwhile. This story can be read as a standalone, but the reader would certainly benefit if they read the two previous books in the series just to have a better understanding of the secondary characters. "I voluntarily read an ARC of this book."

The Wrong Man by Natasha Anders is book three in the Alpha Males series and its Dahlia's turn. One of the things I like about this story is that I absolutely hated Sam, he is made to be this crude man, with life by the B>>>> and nothing is going to stop him. But as I read on (because I just loved books one and two and needed to read Dahlia's story) the story grew more involved and so did he. The story was a bit foreseeable and unsurprising, but I truly enjoyed reading. As this can be read as a standalone, I found it more enjoyable having had read and having a bit of back story of Dahlia's life previously in her sister stories. What did surprise me is all the little details that are added in throughout. Having the sister that we previously fell in love with make an abundance of appearances. Very well written to include all this and bring out a different story for Dahlia. Sam Brand goes and gets everything he wants and walks away from the things he doesn't. Dahlia, a/k/a Lia, has broken off her engagement, but is still dreaming of the day she meets the man she can settle down with. But throwing caution to the wind and spending a wild night with none other than Brand, her world tilts a little. Sometimes that could be a good thing and sometimes it can be a bad thing. But sometime later when Brand shows up again and makes an offer she can't refuse, will Lia's life tilt back or swirl out of control? Ms. Anders has such away of banter between her characters that just causes you to smile and laugh. Well done. **ARC provided for honest review**

Well, my love for Natasha Anders has never been a secret, she has a way with words that just sucks you in and this book was no exception. I really enjoyed the characters of Sam and Dahlia.

I love how he was so set against having a relationship and once Lia gave him the conditions, he was absolutely lost. He wanted her and didn't know what to call it. He went mad with not having all of her and it was such a beauty to read! The writing was wonderful and well paced. Their love story was so believable because of the pacing of their story. It was revealed in pieces and not all at once, we were discovering what they were to one another with them. This was such a different book from Anders' angsty stories and I really enjoyed it. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good love story with cute and endearing characters with a sweet love story.

    What happens in the prologue is rather seedy and doesn't endear the reader to the hero. It takes a while to warm up to Sam, he's very crude. He's also meant to be British but apart from the occasional 'mate', I didn't think he came across at all British. It's an entirely predictable storyline. Sam has never been in love and is a commitment phobe. Dahlia wants love, marriage and commitment. In the meantime she agrees to a sex only arrangement with Sam that has rules but of course it's not long befo What happens in the prologue is rather seedy and doesn't endear the reader to the hero.

    You learn a bit about Sam and Lia at the end of "The best man" and I was immediately intrigued. This is the third book in a series of sisters and Dahlia is the middle sister. Labeled the pretty one. Dahlia was engaged to be married but broke off the engagement after finding out her fiance was a jerk who tried to sleep with her sister. Then comes Sam Brand who's crude and anti commitment. Total bad boy. All Dahlia wants is to find love.

He seemed to be completely blindsided by sweet Dahlia and I loved every minute of it. Not only does this book give you all the feels, its also laugh out loud funny in parts which I really enjoyed.

    Went into this one blind, because I loved some of this author’s other books and several people I’m following gave good ratings. Didn’t read the reviews, didn’t read the blurb.

Maybe I should have 🤷🏻‍♀️ This is basically the story of a commitment-phobe man who’s never truly loved a woman (but had lots of meaningless sex with countless “understanding” women), who falls in love with a little do-gooder who’s never done a wrong thing in her life (casual sex included... of course before she met the hero). I thought the heroine was too naive/innocent for a 32 yo woman, it felt unrealistic. She is also a ridiculously wholesome, virtuous heroine who’s looking for her HEA while still living with mommy and daddy... She doesn’t swear, does lots of charity work with animals and elderly and homeless people, doesn’t have flings and has had only one serious relationship before (meaning one lover), cooks and even makes little “presentations” when serving meals (ie. flowers with strawberries), wears bubblegum flavoured lip gloss... yeah. She was a little too sweet for me. 😳 The hero is your typical arrogant, hormonal, alpha male who thinks he’s the sh*t. 🙄 He isn’t too much of an a**hole to the heroine (thankfully!) but he’s manipulative (yikes). He’s another of those men with the emotional quotient of a beetle: doesn’t understand his and Lia’s emotions, can’t deal with his own feelings. Here’s a quote: “Sam didn’t know why he was so pissed off. He just was. She wouldn’t talk to him because she didn’t want to be his friend? What in the actual fuck?” ... 🤦🏻‍♀️ for the life of me I don’t know WHY authors keep making their characters sound so clueless. 🤷🏻‍♀️ is that endearing to some people? Do some people actually love their 30-something MCs to be unable to comprehend basic emotions? The storyline was okay(-ish?) but i started to tire of it around the 30% mark, probably because I didn’t care much for the characters (didn’t hate them but didn’t particularly like them either). There just isn’t much substance in here, not much character depth, interesting/original conflicts and resolutions.

    This is the first book that I’ve read from Natasha Anders and I am glad that I was not disappointed. I didn’t read the first two books from the series but I am happy to say that I was able to follow along even if I did read The Wrong Man first. Dahlia and Sam might have started out as a one night stand which turned into a fling but as they both get to know each other better feeling start to develop. Dahlia and Sam are so cute together!

    Really enjoyed this one. I've really liked Dahlia through the prior books with all her verbal ramblings and this book definitely continues that. She is truly hilarious. You just know when Lia and Brand start out their no strings fling that it will never stay that way but who falls first is a surprise. Both of these characters are great and I loved them together. I hated how Lia's family treated her at time but you can still feel the love that was there. Overall a very enjoyable well done book th Really enjoyed this one.

    DNF - I just couldn't get behind this story. It starts out with her trying avoid him after a night of sex and him sneaking up behind her to whisper "do you want to f*&^k?" I guess the avoiding didn't give him a clue. And all I could think was that there must have been a lot of liquor involved if she had sex with this asshat to begin with.

    I mirror other reviewers who said that it was creepy that the male love interest chased after the heroine, and it seemed like she definitely was not into him at all! Not good! I love a good chase, but she has to like it as well! That kind of threw me off, so I couldn't get into the rest of the book. I am willing to give Natasha another chance, just with lots more consent and desire! :)

    H34,h32(but while reading you feel like she is 26 or something) The part that interested me most was ,Sam was chasing lia to sleep with him and he is unapologetic in his demands..... Whereas she is shy,blushing and cute and pretty no cuss words type which I liked most.
