My childhood was perfect.
I’ve led a charmed life, and I’m not going to blow it now
by picking the wrong guy.

I’ve got my sights set on my brother’s best friend.
He’s known my family for years. He’s reliable and kind and handsome.

Sure, he’s been avoiding me since I was six.
I’m a bit aggressive for him, maybe.

But he’s the one… right?

— 4 stars —

“Right” is the story of Everly. She’s a senior in college and a very quirky and sassy person. Oh, and she has a crush on her brother’s best friend, who isn’t only 8 years older than her but also a professor at the college she attends – and who’s so not into her. Despite his very clear rejections, she plans their future together out, but she didn’t involve his older brother Sawyer into her plans. Well, he did – and she finally met her match!

The previous book in this series “Wrong” was one of my favorite books in 2015, so I was ecstatic when I learned, that the author would send me an ARC for “Right”. I already knew Everly, the female MC, from “Wrong” and was highly curious about how her doomed story with Finn, the professor, would map out. I was, however, very surprised by the turn the events took in the course of the book. I love that about Jana Aston’s books, they are surprising, despite the plot not being a new one.

The only issues I had with the book – and the reasons why I couldn’t rate it higher – were 1. Everly. The author wanted to create a super bubbly and sassy, smartmouthed young woman – but overdid it in my honest opinion. I had a very hard time taking Everly serious at the more angsty parts of the book. The funny convos that went down between Everly and Sawyer (the male MC) or her and her girlfriends made me laugh out loud, but I also often cringed about the very overpronounced bubbly personality of her. The second issue was, that IMO the twist and conflict that took part very late into the story, was solved too easily. The characters suddenly both made a 180 and it took me longer than thought to catch up with their new ways of thinking. Sawyer for example, he was one of the most swoonworthy male MC’s I’ve encountered in a long time. But his sudden immaturity and lack of communication was just so suddenly, that I had the urge to slap some sense into him. And suddenly Everly became so serious and mature. In the span of days… I would have needed another chapter or two to catch up with their change of hearts, the book ended too fast after this twist.

But as much as I now ranted about the issues I had, I also have to rant about the fantastic writing and the sweet secondary characters. The sex was hot and plenty. BUT I can’t really say that “Right” gripped me emotionally, since I couldn’t really connect with Everly. Despite this not being an emotional read for me, I thought it was a very sweet, sexy and entertaining book.

All in all, I rate “Right” with 4 stars and can recommend it to fans of fast-paced, sexy romance books. Stand-alone novel, although I can only recommend the previous book “Wrong”. Due to explicit sex-scenes 18+. Now I hope, that Jana Aston will next write Chloe’s story!!! *Hint, hint*
