Right Wrong Guy by Lia Riley
Series: Brightwater, Book #2
Genre: contemporary romance
Sometimes two wrongs can make a right…
Bad boy wrangler, Archer Kane, lives fast and loose. Words like responsibility and commitment send him running in the opposite direction. Until a wild Vegas weekend puts him on a collision course with Eden Bankcroft-Kew, a New York heiress running away from her blackmailing fiancé…the morning of her wedding.
Eden has never understood the big attraction to cowboys. Give her a guy in a tailored suit any day of the week. But now all she can think about is Mr. Rugged Handsome, six-feet of sinfully sexy country charm with a pair of green eyes that keeps her tossing and turning all night long.
Archer might be the wrong guy for a woman like her, but she’s not right in thinking he’ll walk away without fighting for her heart. And maybe, just maybe, two wrongs can make a right.
I’ve had questions about Edie since First Last Kiss and I’m glad to say, all my prayers questions have been answered. I have to say, I was a little confused by the time line of this story but I think that might have come from my juggling sick children, reading, editing and just life in general.
I was laughing so hard at the opening. The way Lia is able to set the scene with few words is magical. The imagery is vivid and circumstances are both funny and heartbreaking, dependant on the character.
Grandma Kane – love her sass. I love the person Edie is and who she becomes. She’s lively and she doesn’t want handouts, she wants a helping hand.
While this book starts out in Vegas, all roads lead back to Brightwater. Manwhore Archer is trying to leave the night’s sexcapades behind (I would love to know the research Lia did for the bird scene) and Eden is turning her back on her life when she finds out some home truths.
I really enjoyed how their attraction wasn’t instant and it simmered away. Was good to see Annie and Sawyer make an appearance and I’m keen to see what’s in store for the township in Best Worst Mistake.
I was given a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest opinion.
