Falling for Mr. Wright by Robyn Neeley - Book Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Sarah has a plan. She wants the CEO of the company she works for to notice her, so she can date him. He isn't very approachable and she needs help, so she can find out exactly what he likes. That's why she asks her handsome colleague and good friend Ryan for advice. Ryan is the CEO's best mate and they've known each other since they were children, so he can certainly give her useful advice. However, does Ryan actually want to help Sarah to start dating another man or would he like to keep her for himself?

Christmas is around the corner and everyone is excited about their Secret Santa. Sarah is organizing this event for the company and for some it's the perfect occasion to express their feelings. Who is the person who has to buy Sarah something and what does the gift say about his intentions? Will Sarah's wishes come true and will she get exactly what she wants for Christmas?

Falling for Mr. Wright is a fantastic romantic story. Sarah is smart, capable and sweet. She is ideal girlfriend material. I could easily understand why Ryan would like her. Ryan is a kindhearted man and they have a lot in common. There are also plenty of sparks between them, but he has commitment issues because his heart was broken in the past. I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to find out if he'd be willing to give love another chance or if he'd help the lovely Sarah to start dating his best friend.

I love stories about true love and Robyn Neeley has definitely written a good one. Falling for Mr. Wright has a wonderful festive atmosphere and it was easy to fall for the story. It's cute, fun and charming. Robyn Neeley's writing has a nice fast pace and her descriptions of her main characters kept making me smile. I loved Falling for Mr. Wright, it's an amazing holiday read filled with sparkles and Christmas magic.


If you love reading about office romances Falling for Mr. Wright is an absolute must-read.

In this scene, Sarah accompanies Ryan home to Connecticut to attend an awards gala at his former high school. They wind up alone on the football field where Sarah suggest Ryan show her his quarterback moves.

Ryan cocked an eyebrow. “You want me to tackle you?”


“In that dress?”

Sarah looked down at herself. Whoops. “Okay, maybe just don’t let me win so easily.”

“Okay.” He motioned her to get back into position down the field. “Get ready.”

“I should warn you,” she called to him. “Before I fed the chickens in high school, I ran two miles each morning.”

“Noted.” Once again, he lobbed the ball in her direction. Knowing he’d follow, she grabbed the ball out of the air and ran as fast as she physically could in her dress. Ryan caught up a little too quickly for her liking, so she dodged right and then quickly faked a left, throwing him off just long enough to dash straight for the end zone.

Before she could celebrate victory, Ryan grabbed her waist and lifted her off the ground. “I win, I win!” she shrieked between laughs. Ryan gently put her down and she turned around, standing inches from him. “See? I wouldn’t have lost you a game,” she said, hugging the football.

“Nope,” he said, not moving from his spot. Maybe it was the champagne, or maybe it was her pesky new football-player fantasy, but she stepped closer into his space.

“Are you going to show me how you celebrated touchdowns? I’d love to see you do one of those funny dances players do.” “I could do that.” He touched her cheek with his knuckle, letting it linger. “But I’d rather do this.” He leaned down and brushed her lips with his.

Just a simple touch of warm, soft skin that left her drifting forward. And then it was over. Ryan pulled back, his eyes hooded, his gaze hypnotizing. She clutched the football and blinked up at him, her mind swirling with a thousand thoughts.

At the top of the list? Holy crap. Ryan Wright just kissed me. Followed quickly by, I want him to do it again. No. Bad idea. Ryan was her colleague. Her friend. Kissing him would ruin everything. She’d have to quit her job because no way could she pretend like nothing happened, and it would hurt too much to see him, knowing a momentary lapse of judgment cost her their relationship.

She willed herself to step back…and failed. What are you doing? You’re supposed to want Logan. You’re here, at this gala, for Logan.

But was she? When Ryan invited her, Sarah had been prepared to say yes before he even mentioned Logan. She’d never had as much fun with a guy in her life as she’d had with Ryan the past year. He was incredibly hot, apparently thought she was hot, and was by far one of the most thoughtful and charming men she’d ever met. He’d rescued a kitten at the expense of his arm, for God’s sake.

Did she mention he was hot?

Screw it. One more kiss—just a little one—wouldn’t hurt anything. “Sarah, I’m sor—”

She spiked the ball and tugged Ryan back down. His immediate groan sent thrills skittering across her chest, and lower. His mouth fit over hers perfectly and, oh God, that only added to her desperation. She parted her lips, inviting him in, needing to taste him. She might die if she didn’t. 

So much for a little kiss.
