Book Review: The Right Kind of Wrong

By Sara Steven

The last thing I expect is to wake up in bed next to my brother’s best friend. It’s a mistake I hope to forget when I go back to my life in Madrid.

But Camden is determined to pursue me despite the distance. I was wrong to think an ocean apart would be far enough to clear him from my mind and move on.

Especially when a positive pregnancy test shatters every plan, every dream.

Now I’m forced to tell a man who hasn’t had a serious relationship in all the years I’ve known him that he’s about to be a dad.

As soon as he learns the news, he’s on my doorstep, winning my heart and proving that he’s set on being a father to this child.

I begin to see a different version of the man I thought I knew, but life has other plans for us. And right when I think I’ve found a way to be with him, the unexpected throws our lives into chaos, threatening to rip it all apart. (Synopsis courtesy of Bare Naked Words.)

Since reading various books in the Everton series, I looked forward to what might be next for Fabiola Francisco, and which direction she’d want to go in with her future stories. I’m so glad we got to learn more about Allyson and Camden, secondary characters who are related to the main characters from My Way to You, and an incredible way to carry on with the Everton traditions that have captured so many hearts, my own included!

After an out-of-character move from Allyson--meaning, waking up next to Camden after her brother’s wedding--she thinks it’s no big deal, since she lives in Madrid, and Camden lives in Virginia. They both decide to keep their one night a secret, considering Allyson’s brother is Camden’s best friend and might not take kindly to any of it. Yet, their initial plans fall by the wayside after she discovers that she’s pregnant. 

It’s hard for Allyson to take Camden seriously, considering his relationship track record. And, while Camden feels a strong connection to Allyson, more than with any other woman he’s ever been with, he knows that watching the string of women come in and out of his life has left a lasting impression on her. Yet, they both have to face up to their responsibilities, and deal with a lot of tough decisions.

I thoroughly enjoyed the budding relationship angle in The Right Kind of Wrong. There are a lot of predisposed assumptions on both ends, a lot of trust issues that need to be worked out, and through it all there is an undercurrent of strong physical attraction that connected Allyson and Camden from the get go. Francisco always writes the best steamy scenes, and that is no different in this read. Yet, it goes beyond and into more murky territory, when it comes to acceptance, understanding, and the other relationships involved here. Will Allyson’s brother accept Camden as more than just his best friend, and can he trust his sister’s heart to a man who has never had a serious relationship? And what about their families--will they be supportive? The love that encompasses everyone involved goes beyond the romance, and that was refreshing to see.

Thanks to Bare Naked Words for the book in exchange for an honest review.
