Avoiding Mr. Right is the second in the Walk on the Wild Side Series for C. J. Ellisson. It is an exemplary example of erotic romance that offers so much more than just a great summer beach read. Heather (from Vanilla on Top) shares her concerns with her friend's love `em and leave `em attitude. Carla's character stubbornly insists that she knows what she wants. She just doesn't realize how much she really does want a real, long lasting relationship.
Andy has his hands full, from the first chapter of the story. Carla doesn't want to cooperate. We follow his progress with Carla while learning more about his depth of character as an honorable man that any woman would love to have in their lives.
Every emotion one explores in starting a new relationship is examined through the lenses of Carla and Andy's past experiences. We learn of Carla's deep seeded fears, of Andy's desire to have a loving family experience like his folks. The excitement of the `firsts', the realizations of growing desires, and deepening relationship are all explored with the delightful writing style of Ms. Ellisson. You feel like these characters become a part of your family. You feel yourself rooting for them, and wanting to pop them upside the head.
I know this is one book that I'm going to read over and over. I laughed, I cried, and nodded thinking "Amen, Sister" as I read it. It really is one of my favorite books.

Avoiding Mr. Right is another winner from C.J. Ellisson. Her ability to write an interesting story with intriguing characters that grow within the period of the book is amazing. When reading this story at first Carla seems like a bitchy self-center woman, but as the story develops the reader discovers why Carla portrays this harsh exterior and how she learns to let it go to find happiness. As usual the intimate scenes were extremely HOT, which is another area C.J. excels at in her writing. Also, this book also shows that not all accountants are boring number crunchers. This second story in the Wild Side series is a must read IMO.

This is book two in a series that I certainly reccommend! This book is fun, what she said to him when he helped her into the cab was hysterical. I enjoyed how Carla grew over the course of the book. Andy is an inventive guy that was nice to read about. This is an adult book and while the sex scenes were steamy, well written, and tasteful.
if there was any drawback to the book, it was that it ended too soon. There was one more scene I would have liked to have read. If you like well written erotica that has some spice, this book is for you!

Avoiding Mr. Right is C.J. Ellisson's second book in her Walk on the Wild Side series. It can be read as a standalone story.

I really enjoyed how this story was about the guy chasing the girl instead of the girl chasing the guy. I found the story very intriguing, loved how Andy turned out to be so much more then Carla's label of a "boring accountant." The family dynamics of the story were totally relatable and the twist with Carla's father definitely had me teary eyed. Loved the story, looking forward to the next in the series.

Avoiding Mr. Right is the second book in the a Walk on the Wild Side series by C.J. Ellisson and it definitely was another scorcher. It is already about 90 degrees here in Florida in the summer time and to read this book, let's just say, you may want to read it during the night time when it is cooler, otherwise you will feel like you are on fire. I think my body temperature went up about ten degrees while reading this book and I needed a glass of cold water to cool down...(mostly thrown on me).

Let me get this off my chest first...I would have given Avoiding Mr. Right five stars but the only reason why I gave it 4.5 stars is that I did not click with Carla, like I did with Heather in the first book. In fact, I thought Carla was a little difficult and I definitely know why she felt the need to avoid men, but she assumed every man out there was the same and the ending is the only reason why I started to like her, but not too much. I clicked better with Heather for some reason. Although, I do like the fact that Carla gave over control in this book and became submissive towards Andy.

Without giving too much away, the main things I loved about this book. The first and main reason is that C.J. Ellisson has a very addicting writing style that draws the reader in from the first page. It also helps when C.J. can put together a very well-written book with an amazing storyline between characters that make you want to know more about them. Oh...and let me not forget about the hot sexual scenes between Carla and Andrew. Oh my! *Fanning myself right now to cool down*
-One of my favorite scenes between them are when Andy gives Carla two gifts that they can use...and one them Carla can use on herself.

From Cajun girl in phoenix ::; I truly loved this read ! The story line and characters brought the story to life for me.... This is the 2nd book in the series after Vanilla on Top..... the characters of Andrew and Carla.... Andrew knows what he wants - Carla,and Carla is not sure what she wants,never having a real relationship due to issues in her past,so Andrew has to figure out a way to break down her barriers and show her what they could have together...I will not delve to deep into the story as I don't want to give away spoilers...but this is a story the reader will enjoy as they follow along the journey of romance with Andrew and Carla,the sex scenes are steamy but romantic...I also hope it encourages the reader to check out other works by Author C.J.Ellisson,she has a wonderful imagination when it comes to writing books and putting together a story line that will hook readers into reading more.......
