The Right Kind of Wrong by P.J. Trebelhorn

A unexpectedly good read…

 

Author Synopsis

Quinn Burke loves being a bartender. She meets new women every night and has her choice of bed partners. That’s fine with her because she isn’t interested in anything serious after having her heart shattered eighteen months ago.

Grace Everett is perfectly content owning a bookstore, but not so much in her personal life. She wants forever, but hasn’t had much luck with relationships. She’s hoping the newest woman in her life will be the one.

When Quinn’s mother falls ill, something shifts in the twenty-year-old friendship for both women. Quinn struggles with old feelings for Grace, and Grace is seeing Quinn in a different light. They know falling for their best friend is wrong, but could it be the right kind of wrong?

 

My Review

It took a while for me to settle into this book. When I finally got about 20% of the way in, I really started to enjoy the story. Quinn has had her heart broken in the past and to avoid it happening again decides to enjoy life as a player. She’s always had feelings for her best friend Grace but when they met they decided to be friends and Quinn will always honor that commitment. Grace however is only now realizing 20 years later that she has maybe had feelings for Quinn all along… but can she take a chance on them loosing their very close friendship?

The love story between these two characters is well formed and you can understand their feelings for one another as well as knowing the inner turmoil of potentially loosing your best friend. I really enjoyed Grace’s character more than I thought I would. She’s decisive, knows what she wants and when she realises that what she really wants is Quinn she goes after her. Plus, she owns a book store and is hot… who wouldn’t marry her.

The angst in this book that Quinn creates drove me crazy… but in a good way. I’m not always a fan of too much character angst but I actually enjoyed it in this instance because you can understand Quinn’s inner turmoil and I could empathize more than a few times with her thoughts regarding grace.

The sex scenes were enjoyable and had more chemistry than I thought there would be between the characters and the moments just prior created much sexual tension for both characters that you could almost feel.

The secondary characters in the story really made me laugh a few times. One scene in particular I enjoyed was when Quinn’s sisters go out for dinner with Quinn and Grace and Grace sets the homophobic sister in the family straight. Look out for it because I actually wanted to high five her afterwards.

All in all I went from not being sure of this book to loving it by the end.

4 stars
