Book Reviews: Finding Mr. Right Now by Meg Benjamin @GoddessFish

Monica McKellar, associate producer of Finding Mr. Right, is desperate. One of the show’s bachelors has bailed one week before shooting starts. She not only needs a replacement ASAP, he has to get the temperamental bachelorette’s stamp of approval.

Fortunately there’s a hot guy right under her nose who’s a perfect fit. Unfortunately, he pushes all her hot buttons. Until the show’s over, her hands—and every other part of her body—are tied.

When Paul DeWitt signed on to write for the reality show, “Bachelor #10” wasn’t supposed to be in his job description. He fully expects to be cut early on, which will free him to focus on the real object of his attraction. Monica.

Instead, he’s a finalist, and they’re all packed in an SUV climbing the Continental Divide, headed for Salt Box, Colorado. Where stampeding horses, vindictive tabloid editors, and one capricious bachelorette’s waffling over suitors may conspire to end Paul and Monica’s romance before it even starts.

Do I Recommend Finding Mr. Right Now?

Monica is an associate producer in the middle of a crisis, forced to befriend the teary star of the show, and twist the arm of one of the show’s writers to take part.she takes her job very seriously and getting tangled up with said writer is not a mistake she can afford.

Paul, a disillusioned writer, is holding on to his contract with the show’s production company, until he gets his big break. For him, this means entering into a competition to when the heart of a woman he doesn’t find attractive.

I thoroughly enjoyed Monica and Paul’s story and read it in one sitting. I’ve had one of the months where by the end of it, I still have a thousand things to do and no time to do it in. A submersible book, where you can follow the story without having to figure anything out was totally the answer to a rare night off. Having said that, I was still trying to work out the ending and, well, I was surprise at the end. I was wrong.

At times, it seems that Monica is the most unlucky associate producer in the world, as disaster after disaster strikes her unfortunate production. The author does a very good job of both explaining and effortlessly weaving a believable and chaotic life of those working behind the scenes, especially those of the main characters.Although, I would have liked to have seen a little more character development of the supporting cast.

Although Benjamin did a great job of developing the chemistry between Monica and Paul, I didn’t feel like their developing romance was actually a threat to their careers, neither seemed to resist temptation very hard, nor were they exactly discreet about public interactions, it came as no surprise they were caught. But how and who by was. The obvious villain was not the villain. I was even backtracking to figure it out from the early hints at who it could be, and was surprised to find out, again, I was wrong.

Would I recommend Finding Mr. Right Now? Absolutely! For anyone who’d like to switch off and get lost in a romantic story, with a little heat, and a little intrigue.

A Sneak Peek Inside…. Finding Mr. Right Now

She had no idea what to say after an experience like that. Was it good for you suddenly seemed like a supremely dumb question.

Paul’s lips whispered across her forehead. “Don’t go all silent on me, Monica. I need to know what you’re thinking here.”

She blew out a quick breath. “Um…whoa?”

He chuckled against her hair. “Okay, that pretty much sums it up I guess.” He leaned back against the side of the couch, shifting his weight, pulling her up against his body again. “Sorry, I didn’t mean to squash you.”

“You didn’t.” She ran her fingertips along his cheek, staring at his face in the shadows, the angles and hollows made stark in the dim light.

“Talk to me,” he said softly.

“I don’t…” She shook her head. “What do you want me to say?”

“How you feel, what you think.”

She narrowed her eyes. “Are you usually this talkative after sex?”

He frowned slightly, his brows drawing together. “Not that I recall, no. I just…I like to hear your voice.” He brought her hand to his mouth, pressing his lips against her fingers. “Particularly now. I can’t really see you here, so I need to hear you.”

Her lips curved into a smile, almost against her will. “I feel lovely, considering that I should be freezing and squashed and I’m not. And I think that was insane.”

His brows came together. “Insane good or insane crazy?”

The smile widened. “Both.”

He laughed softly. “But memorable, right?”

“Very memorable. And very insane.”
