Lance Townsend craves freedom after years living a structured existence in the Army. But just as he’s about to leave for the trip of a lifetime, Lance receives a letter written by his best friend before his death asking him to look after his daughter. The problem? The adorable little girl’s aunt is the one woman Lance has never been able to forget.
Between raising her adorable niece and living in a home that can only be described as a fixer-upper---emphasis on the fixer part--Carly Quigley is in over her head. So when the man who jilted her years ago shows up at her door claiming her brother asked him to check in on her and the house, she reluctantly accepts. Except having the sexy military man around is distracting, and all either of them can focus on is their undeniable attraction. But Lance isn't planning on staying, which makes him the wrong man for her. Unfortunately, the wrong man has become oh-so-tempting.
Each book in the Wrong Man series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Sweet, Steamy, And Heartwarming Story
"Tempting Mr. Wrong" by Kerri Carpenter is book number two in the "Wrong Man" series. This is Lance Townsend and Carly Quigley's story.
Lance is out of the service and is ready to do the things on his bucket list. Out of the blue he receives a request that his best friend had written before he died. The problem is he will have to go see Carly his best friends sister. Why is that a problem? Well, he jilted her years ago.

Once Lance completes the house repairs he will be on his way to do the things on his bucket list. The chemistry and attraction between them is very intense. Will Carly give in to this temptation since Lance is only there temporarily?
I enjoyed Lance and Carly's story. There were times that I wanted to smack Lance but he had things to work through. This is a sweet, steamy, and heartwarming story.
FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A sweet story!
Lance Townsend just got out of the Army after 8 years and was going to fulfill his bucket list by traveling. First stop was Vegas. However, his plans were changed when he received a letter from his best friend Chris asking him to check in on his sister and daughter if anything were to happen to him, so Lance's first stop is in North Carolina. The only problem is Chris' little sister Carly, she is the one woman he has never been able to forget.
Tempting Mr. Wrong was a cute, light-hearted, and lovable story. I loved the fact that Lance came in with the idea that he was going to just check in and leave. Instead he fell in love with Mya and quit trying to fight his attraction to Carly. Lance wanted his freedom after have a regimen of strictness between his mother and the Army, but his travels just aren't the same anymore because he misses his girls. He realizes this and goes back to NC to be with them and they begin traveling together, making everything worth it and his life full.
For a relaxing night, this is the book to read!
Received ARC in exchange for honest review from NetGalley
Fantastic story! I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend to any that love a good "falling for your best friends sister" romance. Only in this story the best friend, Chris, dies and leaves his daughter, Mya, with his younger sister, Carly, and calls upon his best friend, Lance, in a letter, to check up on them and help Carly with the house.
The story is full of sorrow, possibilities, friendship, freedom and love. It has one of the cutest little girls in it and all she wants is a family again. It is well written and contains awesome characters. I can't wait to see if Adam gets his own story!
