Title: RIGHT KIND OF WRONG (Finding Fate #3)
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.
Oh wow. This book is actually so much more than just a road trip journey kind of story. It surprised the hell out of me on how the storyline of this book turned out. It surprised me in a really good way, guys. In case you didn’t know, Right Kind of Wrong is the third book from Finding Fate series by Chelsea Fine but could also be read as a standalone. 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 LOL) and element of surprise compared to the two.
Jenna’s one of those fictional characters who have back stories which changed their life plans and lead 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 fulfil her goals/dreams in life. I admire her for being that focused towards her goals but omg there were moments where I would love to be inside the pages of this book and be the one to shake Jenna’s shoulder. Oh it's given, that she frustrated me to no end. But given 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. You’ll understand what I’m feeling when you read this book already.
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 damn time) and the lengths he’ll go through to pursue her. Some characteristics of Jack that really stood out were him being a very patient and persistent man, 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 of the story and Jack and Jenna’s feelings were out in the open it was explosive. Bammm!
Their individual stories were also beautifully intertwined with each other. Both of their families made an appearance in this story and I think that’s one of my favourite 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 humour in the story at the right place and right time. Actually, there were a lot of moments where I was laughing really hard because of the banters of the characters. 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 and LOL! 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? Weyhey, Yes! So, if you're looking for a fast read with witty and sassy characters with great chemistry then you might want to try this book out. Again, Right Kind of Wrong can be definitely be read as a standalone novel.
