Right Kind of Wrong Blog Tour and Review


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 Review!

"Loving you isn't really something I should do. I shouldn't wanna spend my time with you, yeah. Well, I should try to be strong. But baby, you're the right kind of wrong." Every time I read that title, I think of the song by Leann Rimes. And it's pretty much the perfect song for these two characters and their messy love.

Rating: 4 Stars!

I have been a fan of these two characters since Best Kind of Broken, especially the crazy, wild, and tatted Jenna. She's an amazing friend, a sassy and confident gal who doesn't believe in love. And it's that belief that pushes her to stay "just friends" with the one guy who makes her life interesting. She just underestimates her feelings for him and how badly she needs him in her life. The fact that she's distrustful of love and guys completely makes sense after knowing her background and past. But it took a REALLY long time for Jenna to realize that sometimes love is worth it. Sometimes, it could be the best thing that ever happens to you. I thought her character development was a little lacking, at least compared to Jack's. It takes her like the whole book to finally ask herself if losing what she could have with Jack is better than getting her heart broken like her mom and grandmother. But even they tell her that love is worth it. She is just so distrustful of guys and love that she keeps pushing him away.

Jack. Oh, Jack. Strong, mysterious, quiet. Funny, determined, protective. All of those things and more make up this amazing guy. I was a fan of his small cameos in the first book, and I couldn't wait to learn more about him. His story was very...unexpected. But it just fit him. There is more to this "bad boy's" past than leaving home. There is more behind his tattoos and his silent disposition. He's been through a lot, and in this book, he'll have to face what he left behind. But Jenna won't let him do it alone.

The chemistry between these two was obvious and the sexual tension delicious. Because of their personalities, it made for one sizzling read. And also, this one was a lot steamier than her other two books, which I found fit the two characters well. I loved that they had a foundation of friendship before the passion and intimacy. It made them have an even deeper connection.

I don't know what I was expecting with Jenna's and Jack's story. But the direction the story took was quite surprising. I'm just not sure I was totally interested in it. I felt that it became more about Jack, his past, and what's happening now than about them. They did stick by each other through everything, and because of that, they grow closer than ever before. Through that, Jenna and Jack's relationship steadily becomes deeper. But I feel like Jenna's issues with love were left behind in favor of what was happening.

I loved having cameos of the secondary characters. Pixie and Levi, Daren and Kayla. Ellen, too. And I so enjoyed the additions of both Jenna's and Jack's families. Especially her grandmother and his brother, Samson. Those relationships were developed well, and some of them brought even more color into an already bright book.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and I've loved following these characters as they stumbled through life, questioned their identity, made mistakes but grew as a person, and fell in love even if they didn't want it. Right Kind of Wrong was another wonderful book with a passionate love story and characters who found their way through the complicated and messy beginnings of adulthood.
