I didn’t read the previous novels in the Finding Fate series as this book could be read as a stand-alone. I feel that sometimes even though authors say you can read a book out of order from the rest of the series you still miss something. But, I was pleasantly surprised that I had no problem following along with Jenna and Jack’s story.
This book was a quick read. Even though the problems Jenna and Jack dealt with, especially in the second half of the book, are heavy I would categorize this book as a light read. I actually think that was one of the reasons I didn’t totally fall in love with Right Kind of Wrong. There were some pretty scary illegal activities that were fairly easily taken care of, but I never felt that the main characters were in danger. If there had been more tension or I had been fearful for the characters lives I may have become more emotionally attached.
Speaking of attached, I loved how Jack wasn’t afraid to tell Jenna how he felt. He wasn’t exactly cocky, more like sure of himself. I liked that he knew what he wanted and went after it. Jenna annoyed me after a while. She obviously had feelings for Jack. Her constant rejection of him, even after she admits to herself that she wanted him, got old.
Jack’s mom stole every scene. In fact, whenever Jenna bothered me I could count on Jack’s mom, Lilly and his brother, Samson to make me laugh. I loved their sense of humor and deep commitment to their family. I actually wish we had more moments with Lilley. Her timing and humor was fantastic.
Right Kind of Wrong was a great book to read this summer. It was funny and cute. I know dangerous illegal activities don’t usually fall into the “cute” category but the author somehow pulled it off. While I didn’t love Right Kind of Wong, I did like Jenna and Jack’s story enough that I think I’ll go back and read the previous books in the series.
