Mr Right & Mr Wrong - Grigory Ryzhakov


Having two admirers can be a real headache, especially when a tough agronomy course at Imperial College comes on top of that, not forgetting a part-time job at a florist’s and a mother desperate to marry you off.

Have I mentioned a stalker who keeps sending roses, and a Professor who thinks it’s fine to bury you under an extra pile of academic papers? Arrrgh!

Blake may be cute and charming, but Terrence is no less attractive in his business suits. What is a poor girl to do? Dating both of them is the right thing if you listen to Trish and that’s exactly the way Kurt handles his men.

Party after party, you have to deal with these bouts of guilt mixed with hangovers while mulling over the same dilemma over and over again - Blake or Terrence? Terrence or Blake?

Think, Chloe, think!

Mr Right & Mr Wrong is a wonderfully warm and witty yet thoughtful romantic comedy, from which you will not only pick up tips on the intricacies of London dating, but also discover a few moral and ethical aspects of plant neurobiology. Not so much chick lit as chic lit, offering sophistication alongside Chloe’s amusing complications.

What did I think?

This was such good fun!  I absolutely adored the chapters being named after plants and fruits including their botanical (latin) names.  It was so clever how these plants or fruits were then weaved into the relevant chapter.  It shows how well thought out this book was.

I laughed out loud on so many occasions and felt the need to read excerpts out to whichever lucky person was sitting in the room with me!  Chloe is an instantly likeable character, living the single life and not necessarily looking for love when, like the number 9 bus, two men come along at once.  She can't decide between the two so she dates both of them, and whilst I don't condone this I can understand the confusion on the dating scene.  She's ultimately looking to settle down with someone, she is 22...er...25...er actually 28 after all.  So professional, respectable Terrence seems like a good choice over fun, flirty Blake.  Will Terrence turn out to be Mr. Right or Mr. Wrong?  That's what I was asking myself throughout the book, so I had to keep reading into the early hours to find out!

I really enjoyed the way that Grigory Ryzhakov has written this book.  His humour shines out of every page and I found myself laughing,smiling and cursing dastardly men throughout the book.  I notice on Amazon that this is Girl Scientist Book 1 - so I'll be looking out for book 2.  Hopefully we will hear more of Chloe's escapades and find out if she ended up with Mr. Right after all.

I received this book from the author via a Goodreads Giveaway.
