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?

Book Review: 3.5 Stars
I’m finally back to reviewing! So yay for me and i’m not sure if you’re reading this because you missed me or i’m talking to the void *Nine Inch Nails’ Into The Void starts playing*
Ok back to the important matters: The right kind of wrong is amazing in some of the subjects it touches, like I love that Quinn and Grace are in their forties and still are trying to figure out their “place” in the world somehow, like it’s not angsty in a teenage way, they are content with their lives but they know it can be better, specially when it comes to finding the right person to spend life with.
I’m not sure what’s the part that I relate most, maybe that I feel old and painfully single and this gives me hope, or if it’s the part of me that’s just really dumb and still loves the trope of falling for your best friend.
I think the characters are likable enough, and it has your regular scheduled romcom formula of problems that could be easily solved by TALKING, which is off-putting if we get technical, they are on their forties and have had enough relationships in their lives and met each other for over 20 years, so having this as the reason behind the conflict is not believable for me. I’m not saying it doesn’t have angst but when you rationally go to the core of it, it’s easily fixed and that’s why it gets frustrating, because in your classic rom-coms you’re dealing with twentysomethings so life stages are different.
The bad part for me it’s how long it took for me to start rooting or caring for the characters, it was a conscious effort that reminds me of school days when reading was mandatory and not a thing my nerd butt likes to do on her free time, but onces you get into it, it becomes easy and fun.
