Title: RIGHT KIND OF WRONG (Finding Fate #3)
Author: Chelsea Fine
Publication Date: September 2, 2014
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.
More than just a road trip kind of story.
Right Kind of Wrong surprised me. In a really good way. Although I enjoyed reading the other books of this series, I’d definitely pick this one over the others. Right Kind of Wrong has more content, depth, tension (including sexual tension between Jenna and Jack) and element of surprise compared to the two.
Jenna is one of those fictional characters who have back stories which changed their life plans and led them to over think their decisions too much. She has this plan to stay away from love (or at least try to) in order to fulfill her dreams in life. I admire her for being that focused towards her goals but there were moments wherein I would love to be inside the pages of this book and be the one to shake Jenna’s shoulder. It’s given that she frustrated me to no end. But with her situation it somewhat made her character bearable for me to continue and read the book. Understanding her more quite lessen my frustration towards her.
For me, Jack’s character is a very refreshing one. He’s a tatted up, sexy and totally swoon-worthy hottie who’s vying for Jenna’s attention and trying to make her realize what he’s already offering to her. He’s pretty much dangling it in front of her face and just waiting when she’ll grab and hold on tight to it. I love the things that he does (which mostly annoys Jenna all the time) and the lengths that he’ll go through to pursue her. Some characteristics of Jack that really stood out were him being a very patient and persistent person which complements with how Jenna is. He was just the right guy to make her comprehend about everything.
The pacing of the story worked perfectly for the build up of events and with how Jenna and Jack’s relationship progressed. It actually added to tension of the entire story. So, when we reached the climax and Jack and Jenna’s feelings were out in the open it was explosive!
Their individual stories were also beautifully intertwined with each other. Both of their families made an appearance and I think that’s one of my favorite elements. You’ll be surprised as to what situations their families are in. Especially Jack’s. It never even crossed my mind that we’ll be dealing with that kind of stuff in this book. I love the fact that there’s a bigger picture other than just us reading about the turmoil happening between Jenna and Jack. And what’s great about having it here is it didn’t overpower our main concern (which is their relationship) because both story lines were given the appropriate time to grow and be resolved. It definitely made Jenna and Jack’s story quite difficult yet exciting.
Despite being in the middle of a very grave situation, Chelsea Fine managed to inject humor in the story at the right place and at the right time. Fine writes witty and sassy conversational banters between her characters. Especially, when you put Jack’s mom (Lilly) and Jenna’s Grandma in the equation. Just whoa! You must look forward to that, readers! Plus, Fine also included cute and sweet moments of her characters from the previous books and it was such a good moment seeing them interacting towards each other.
Do I recommend this book? Yes! So if you’re looking for a fast read with witty and sassy characters and great chemistry then you might want to try this book out. Right Kind of Wrong can be definitely read as a standalone novel.
