SYNOPSIS

Sometimes wrong can feel oh so right . . . 

Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie.

Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

My FEEEELINGS
So, Right Kind of Wrong!!!! 🙂 I really enjoyed this book because it was such an easy read! I zipped through it because every event that occurred drew me further into the book. The plot developed a lot as the book got into its middle and to the end, and I loved every moment of the reveals and twists. I really enjoyed it overall!!!
So, the main girl we have is JENNA! We were first introduced to Jenna in Best Kind of Broken when she’s seen as Pixie’s roommate, and now, we see her as the main. Jenna has a bunch of problems, her biggest one being about not being able to be in control of a situation. She has this plan for herself, and sometimes I got soooo frustrated with her for not just saying F you to the plan and skipping into happily ever after. But I understood why she did it. And even though sometimes she made me go like
Harry-Potter,
most of the time, I was grinning because of her sass and attitude, or just grinning because she was just such a supportive, strong, and kind person even when she was fighting herself and Jack.
As for JACK, our main guy, there was SO much that was going on. In the beginning, he seemed like the nice, alpha male types who just have success under their belt and good looks to go with it. But then, his issues get added on. And THEN we see him with his family. And by this point, I’m just like
Frustration
WHY CAN’T GUYS LIKE JACK BE REAL?!?!
So, basically he was hella fierce, and I enjoyed every second of his hotness, arrogance (heh.) and loving moments.
Right Kind of Wrong was a great read. I definitely enjoyed it, because I read it one sitting, and just wanted to go back and highlight the hell out of it 😉 This book is the third in the Finding Fate series, but it’s completely doable to read it as a standalone!!! 🙂 ❤

EXCERPT

 

His eyes dance as he watches my struggle. “What’s your plan here, Jenna? Haul me out of the car and leave me in the street?”

“Sounds good to me.”

“Well, that doesn’t sound friendly at all,” he says, flicking the lever to recline to seat a bit so he looks even more relaxed than before.

“I wasn’t trying to be friendly,” I grit out.

“Clearly.”

I try pulling him out again, to no avail. He’s giant and solid, and honestly, just touching him is turning me on.

I drop my hands and glower at him. “You can’t just tell me that you’re coming along on my road trip.”

He cocks his head. “Would you feel better if I asked?”

“Not especially.”

“Jenna.” He leans forward and his gaze bores through me, down into the deepest parts of my being. “Will you please let me join you on your trip to Louisiana?”

For a moment, I’m lost in his eyes, debating with myself. I don’t trust myself around Jack. Not at all. But I did spend half the night tossing in my sleep with nightmares about traveling alone so maybe having Jack tag along might not be so bad after all. Maybe.

Pulling back, I straighten my shoulders and relent, like usual when it comes to Jack.

“Fine,” I huff out as I stomp back to my side of the car in climb in. “But no talking,” I say, hoping I haven’t just made a huge mistake.

He grins and I turn away.

Surely I can manage to keep my panties on around Jack for a few days…right?

Synopsis

SOMETIMES MOVING ON MEANS MOVING IN

Pixie Marshall wishes every day she could turn back time and fix the past. But she can’t. And the damage is done. She’s hoping that a summer of free room and board working with her aunt at the Willow Inn will help her forget. Except there’s a problem: the resident handyman is none other than Levi Andrews. The handsome quarterback was once her friend-and maybe more–until everything changed in a life-shattering instant. She was hoping to avoid him, possibly forever. Now he’s right down the hall and stirring up feelings Pixie thought she’d long buried . . .

Levi can’t believe he’s living with the one person who holds all his painful memories. More than anything he wants to make things right, but a simple “sorry” won’t suffice–not when the tragedy that scarred them was his fault. Levi knows Pixie’s better off without him, but every part of him screams to touch her, protect her, wrap her in his arms, and kiss away the pain. Yet even though she’s so close, Pixie’s heart seems more unreachable than ever. Seeing those stunning green eyes again has made one thing perfectly clear–he can’t live without her.

My Feelings!

AH! Best Kind of Broken was a pretty good read 😉 It had great characters and I really like how everything connected, and the background stories for both the main characters, but I think the one thing I felt was that it was a little too slow, and that the emotional conflicts were mostly internal. 

Okay, I think I should start from the beginning. 🙂 So, Pixie is a nineteen year old girl who, due to mother issues, has come to the point where the dorms have closed for summer, and she is in need of a new place to stay. Luckily, her Aunt Ellen gives her that in the Willow Inn, and moves Pixie in. But was Pixie doesn’t know is that Levi, her FORMER best friend, lives right next to her, and she’s going to have to share a bathroom with him, because he’s the handyman at the inn.

Basically, theses two haven’t talked for a year. They’re scarred and emotionally hurting from the incident that happened the summer before, and they both have major guilt issues from what happened. And, when they see each other again, everything just comes rushing back, and they see the scars all over again, literally and metaphorically speaking. AND AND they’re both REALLY attracted to each other so that doesn’t really help their attempts to avoid each other.

For me, I think that was one of the aspects I didn’t appreciate. The guilt that both these two carried was warranted, I guess. But it went on for way too long. There were no real problems between the two. It was just personal. It was all in their heads, and they hadn’t figured out to get through it until way later. But what I did like was how it took the both of them to get over their guilt and their emotional scars. They both felt as though the other blamed each other, but in the end, it took both their efforts to bring each other back on their feet again.

I really did love Pixie and Levi as a couple. They were just sooo darn cute. A lot of the first part of the book is their bickering and arguing because of the hardships of sharing a bathroom, and getting back at each other with pranks, all while trying to avoid the sexual tension. It was pretty funny, and they both had me laughing and smiling quite a few times. I loved both their individual characters as well! Levi was, what can I say. HOT. GORGEOUS. 😉 but, seriously. He was a truly good person, and I loved how he never stopped caring for Pixie, and he really did fight for her.

“You are not my friend, Pixie. You are a piece of my heart and a part of who I want to be.”

HEHE. SO perfect!!! 😉 It was beautiful to watch him come into his own, get over the guilt, and fight for his present and future: Pixie. Speaking of, Pixie was FANTASTIC. FEISTY. BEAUIFUL. I loved her too. She didn’t take any of the crap the Levi was giving her. She called him on everything, and honestly, there were some points where I was like “get over it” but those were only few. BUT I still loved her, and she really was a down-to-earth, kind, beautiful person who, like Levi, got over her issues and made the effort to fight for she wanted.

AH! and the book was just better and better with the supporting character. Ok, basically, they were this:

“Zack looks at Jenna and slowly pulls off his sunglasses. “Why, hello, beautiful,” he says. “I’m Zack.” He shows off his dimples. “And you are…?”

“Not going to sleep with you,” Jenna quips, grinning right back at him.

His smile widens. “Well played.”

HEHE. Everyone in this book was just too good and good, together. And I loved being sucked into the story of their lived. It was a great ride 🙂 Basically:

My favorite quote?

“Winning is an effect of trying. You have to want it badly enough to go through pain, discipline, and failure to find it. To confront it. To claim it. But most of all, you have to fight for it. Everything else—anything else—is absolute surrender” 

It really sums up what I think the story was trying to tell through Pixie and Levi’s story, and that message was a beautiful one. Overall, what I really enjoyed was that Levi and Pixie were basically two sides of the same coin, and it made me SO happy to watch them come together and overcome all the internal obstacles that came their way. 🙂

Daren Ackwood is a bad boy with a mysterious past. He’s the kind of guy who knows he can get any girl he wants. Kayla doesn’t do bad boys—in any sense of the word. They have a tendency to leave scars and dust trails in their wake, and Kayla isn’t running short on either. So when Daren rolls up to her father’s funeral in his shiny sports car, Kayla knows she needs to keep her distance during her brief stay in this tiny God-forsaken town. She’s here to take care of her father’s will, nothing more. The trouble is, Daren doesn’t see it that way. And he usually gets his way.
