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: 

Right Kind of Wrong is another fun read in the Finding Fate series. I have adored this series by Chelsea and each book is a great read. I have adored all the characters in each book and loved seeing them go through their own challenges. With that being said, I loved getting to know Jack and Jenna and watching them both fumble with love and life.  
“I’m racing in circles – fleeing a storm of my own making – while Jack waits patiently, ready to catch me when I collapse of exhaustion.” 
I don’t know if it’s the major reading slump I’ve been in or what, but I just didn’t connect with this book as much as I did the others. Despite that I did thoroughly enjoy Jack and Jenna. They were definitely two very different characters and the book had a much darker theme than the previous two.  I enjoyed that darker element in the book.

Jenna is one of those very tough chicks; a heroine that knows how to kick some ass and take names while doing it. That’s what I loved about her. But, she’s afraid to love, to open herself up and be vulnerable.  And giving up control is something Jenna can’t seem to do. But that all changes when her and the hot Jack get close, become friends, and have a night both can’t forget. I loved and hated watching Jenna battle her fear of losing control. When her and Jack set out on a road trip to Louisiana, it challenges her to finally fully trust others. I loved watching her finally learn to let go.

Jack is hot. Enough said! I adored him and his determination to push Jenna, to have her question her control and her emotions. I liked that he knew her, despite when she kept him at arm’s length, and how he never really gave up on her. I loved learning about his dangerous past. It was such a sad aspect of the book; it was dark and very much gritty.  You can feel that he puts the ones he loves first and foremost, doing whatever he can to protect them.
“She’s everything I’ve ever wanted. And she won’t let me love her.”
For me, the ending felt a bit too rushed. It all warped up very quickly in my mind. But other than that I enjoyed the book. The darker aspect was something I felt that Chelsea handled quite nicely and the chemistry between Jack and Jenna was so very present. The spark between them palpable and fierce.

Right Kind of Wrong
was a fun, sweet, yet darker read. I enjoyed the strong personalities of the characters and their passionate chemistry.  It was a great addition to the series!

  2. It's a shame you didn't really connect with the characters in this one, because it sounds like a great read. Hopefully the next book draws you back in again!

  3. I've been in a reading slump too. It's difficult to enjoy a book when you can't connect with the character. I had that problem recently too. Hopefully, we'll both be able to get out of our reading slumps soon!
