So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she's beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he's been trying to strip away her defenses one by one.

Now Jack's troubles are catching up to him, and he's forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm's way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she's willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has.

THHernandez More than 1 year ago
This is my first book in the series and I'm ready for more. Both Jenna and Jack are interesting, well-developed characters with rough, realistic back stories.  This isn't just a fluffy new adult romance. There was danger, serious drama, some pretty awesome sex, and a cast of colorful characters. Author, Chelsea Fine, does a great job of hooking us with clues. Clues about why Jenna keeps Jack at arms' length, why Jack has so many scars, how Jenna feels about Jack, and how Jack feels about Jenna. The conflict is almost constant which is how I like my stories. There are only two things that really kept this from being a five-star review for me. One is the fact that Jenna waffles way too much about her feelings and what she wants, seeming to revisit the same things over and over again. And the other is that there was so much potential for things to really go all kinds of wrong during the climax, and I think this could have been explored more fully than it was. Plot The main plot centers on Jenna and Jack and their on-again-off-again relationship. Jenna values the friendship, considering Jack to be her best friend. Jenna doesn't do relationships, so even though they have fantastic chemistry, she halted their physical relationship after the one and only time they slept together because she realized it could never be just sex with Jack. She'd rather keep Jack as a friend than risk anything more and lose him all together. Jack is crazy about Jenna and doesn't want to accept the status quo. He's determined to get her to change her mind. When both are called back home to Louisiana towns within a couple of hours of each other, Jack sees the road trip as a chance to change Jenna's mind. The main plot is good enough, but it's the subplot that takes this from just another new adult romance. Jack has a dark past he ran away from. A past that now threatens his family. As Jack tries to keep Jenna safely on the sidelines of his family drama, she realizes she cares enough about Jack to do what it takes to keep him safe. Characters Jenna and Jack are both very likable, intense, deep, flawed, and I couldn't help pulling for both of them. But what really works here is the supporting cast. Jenna's best friend, Pixie, Jack's brothers, his mother, they're all equally well rounded and are the kind of people you'd want to hang out with. No one comes across as two-dimensional or stereotypical. These deep, layered characters are what sets apart strong writing. Top Five Things I Loved About Right Kind of Wrong 1. Jack's mom. Oh my god, she's hilarious. I would totally love to hang out with her all the time. 2. Jack's past. He has one of the best back stories I've read in awhile. 3. Pixie. She's fun and wild and I can't wait to read her story. 4. NOLA. One of my favorite cities is the setting for some great scenes. 5. Road trips. Because when you put two people in an enclosed environment, sparks are bound to fly. Bottom Line Right Kind of Wrong is filled with wonderful characters, a solid romance, and a layer of danger that makes it a fun, fast read. Disclaimer I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, this book had me not liking Jenna at all in the beginning. She was so controlling and didn’t think she needed a man because men make you weak and they leave you. So watching Jenna transform and love Jack was so sweet. I love Chelsea Fine’s books. She writes in a way that is so believable and makes you feel good inside that you just find yourself sighing at the end. We get 2 POV’s which I like to know what they each think and feel. I bet if I met Jack in real life, he would be intimidating. He is all tattooed and muscled, and hot too, but he has such a sweet side and so full of love that I would be immediately calmed after meeting him. Or in another words,Jack may be intimidating as Hades but he is just a big teddy bear at heart. I wanted to slap Jenna for not letting go with him because Jack is a hot package! The suspense that is Jack’s life and family also kept me on my toes waiting to find how he would help his family. He would die for them. Dang, I want me a Jack! So if you like tattoos, suspense, family, learning to overcome your fears, and lots of lovin’ than this might be for you

About the book: Jenna Lacombe needs complete control, whether it’s in the streets . . . or between the sheets. So when she sets out on a solo road trip to visit her family in New Orleans, she’s beyond annoyed that the infuriatingly sexy Jack Oliver wants to hitch a ride with her. Ever since they shared a wild night together last year, he’s been trying to strip away her defenses one by one. He claims he’s just coming along to keep her safe-but what’s not safe for her is prolonged exposure to the tattooed hottie. Jack can’t get Jenna out from under his skin. She makes him feel alive again after his old life nearly destroyed him-and losing her is not an option. Now Jack’s troubles are catching up to him, and he’s forced to return to his hometown in Louisiana. But when his secrets put them both in harm’s way, Jenna will have to figure out how far she’s willing to let love in . . . and how much she already has. My review: This was so much better than books one and two. I seriously did not want to put it down. Getting to the thick of it: Jenna needs to go home. She thinks the reason could possibly be BS, but the road trip across a few states from college to her home is something she's willing to do. Well, toss in a man who drives her crazy and who she is insanely attracted to, oh, and make sure to throw in a past one night stand and watch the fireworks light up. Jack loves every minute of it. But all funny aside, he also wants to show Jenna just how much he cares. Only problem? Jenna doesn't want to hear any of it. This was a great read. Toward the tail end there was a lot of action going on, both internally with these characters, and externally. I can definitely say if you pick this book up, you won't want to put it down. Great read.

Very good read, loved jack, but I sometimes hated jenna. She kept getting on my last nerves, jack was trying to protect her, by trying to keep her out of harms ways, and she always wanted to tag alone, what the hell is wrong with her.

Complicated and Messy!  I have been a fan of these two characters since Best Kind of Broken, especially the crazy, wild, and tatted Jenna. She's an amazing friend, a sassy and confident gal who doesn't believe in love. And it's that belief that pushes her to stay "just friends" with the one guy who makes her life interesting. She just underestimates her feelings for him and how badly she needs him in her life. The fact that she's distrustful of love and guys completely makes sense after knowing her background and past. But it took a REALLY long time for Jenna to realize that sometimes love is worth it. Sometimes, it could be the best thing that ever happens to you. I thought her character development was a little lacking, at least compared to Jack's. It takes her like the whole book to finally ask herself if losing what she could have with Jack is better than getting her heart broken like her mom and grandmother. But even they tell her that love is worth it. She is just so distrustful of guys and love that she keeps pushing him away. Jack. Oh, Jack. Strong, mysterious, quiet. Funny, determined, protective. All of those things and more make up this amazing guy. I was a fan of his small cameos in the first book, and I couldn't wait to learn more about him. His story was very...unexpected. But it just fit him. There is more to this "bad boy's" past than leaving home. There is more behind his tattoos and his silent disposition. He's been through a lot, and in this book, he'll have to face what he left behind. But Jenna won't let him do it alone. The chemistry between these two was obvious and the sexual tension delicious. Because of their personalities, it made for one sizzling read. And also, this one was a lot steamier than her other two books, which I found fit the two characters well. I loved that they had a foundation of friendship before the passion and intimacy. It made them have an even deeper connection. I don't know what I was expecting with Jenna's and Jack's story. But the direction the story took was quite surprising. I'm just not sure I was totally interested in it. I felt that it became more about Jack, his past, and what's happening now than about them. They did stick by each other through everything, and because of that, they grow closer than ever before. Through that, Jenna and Jack's relationship steadily becomes deeper. But I feel like Jenna's issues with love were left behind in favor of what was happening. I loved having cameos of the secondary characters. Pixie and Levi, Daren and Kayla. Ellen, too. And I so enjoyed the additions of both Jenna's and Jack's families. Especially her grandmother and his brother, Samson. Those relationships were developed well, and some of them brought even more color into an already bright book. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and I've loved following these characters as they stumbled through life, questioned their identity, made mistakes but grew as a person, and fell in love even if they didn't want it. Right Kind of Wrong was another wonderful book with a passionate love story and characters who found their way through the complicated and messy beginnings of adulthood.

I'd like to label this a fun road trip read, and it is, but this book became so much more and I enjoyed it from start to finish.  It was quite obvious that Jenna and Jack were written in the stars. So different but so completely alike it was as if they were one soul torn in two, lost until they were together. As much as Jenna wanted to deny her feelings for Jack, there was no way of getting around them and I knew her mind would eventually have to accept what her heart already knew. For two people who were not a couple they certainly knew little things about each other's actions that most others probably wouldn't have paid enough attention to, and just like the green neon sign Jenna couldn't see, so she was blind to the perfect match that she and Jack made. This book started off light and fun, filled with sexual tension and smoking hot chemistry, and although the latter two were running elements throughout this story, once Jenna and Jack got to Louisiana this story took a darker turn. With drug dealing gangs, secrets and lies, this story was grittier than I was expecting, and the surprising twist only upped my excitement level. A great read with plenty of emotion!

This book was jointly reviewed by myself and my co-blogger, Becca! THE STORY: Becca: Chelsea Fine has done it again! Another amazing story with intense chemistry, awesome build up and LOL moments! I have been excited for Jack and Jenna’s story ever since we meet both of then in Best Kind of Broken and then briefly in Perfect Kind of Trouble and OH BOY! Did Chelsea Fine deliver!! From the awesome road trip that we start out on that takes us to Jack’s hometown and then Jenna’s in New Orleans it is one jaw dropping, kindle gripping moment after another and I loved every single second! Lisa: ROAD TRIP!! Yes, as soon as I found out there would be a road trip involved in this book, which was very early on in the story, I was psyched. I have this total obsession with road trip books. Though this isn’t actually a “road trip book”, the fact that these two were going to be in a car together, staying in hotels and dealing with normal travel dramas, made me extremely happy. :) And that’s how the first ten minutes of our “fun” road trip go down; with me snapping at him to shut it, and him defying me with a happy smile. Ten minutes down, twenty-one hours to go. This story was exactly what I was hoping it would be. The fact that we got to meet both families really brought this story home for me. These characters are so unique and fun… and to see the families that brought them up completely brought these two to life for me. I love that Chelsea Fine writes companion novels, rather than a straight series. That way you don’t have to have read the others in the series first, but if you did, then you get the added bonus of them making cameo appearances in the other books. I really enjoyed seeing little glimpses of the Finding Fate crowd in this book. And the intense drama in this one! OH MAN! I wasn’t expecting it. This story isn’t all romance… it definitely takes a darker turn and has a few gripping moments that took my breath away. Jack’s family is facing some very difficult times, and he’s forced to go home and try to help them out of the danger ASAP. I was definitely surprised when all of the action took place. Half of the story had me on the edge of my seat. Well played, Chelsea, well played. Part trouble, part mystery. Playful and pensive. He’s one of the few males on this planet I enjoy conversing with – when he’s not being a dickhead, of course. THE CHARACTERS: Lisa: Jenna and Jack won me over in Perfect Kind of Trouble. I adored Jenna’s spunky and somewhat snarky exterior. She had such an incredibly sad vision of how life and love turns out, based on how her own family has ended up. She didn’t believe in love or happiness. She felt she, alone, had to make her life into something successful. She was terrified of love getting in the way. “Love isn’t an obedient whim. It’s an unruly force, and it answers to no one.” Then we have Jack, who’s overly confident and extremely sure of himself. He had no trouble admitting his feelings. He also had a shady home life, filled with all kinds of stressful drama and intense situations that really had us gripping our Kindles til our fingers ached. These two definitely fought their connection tooth and nail, neither one giving in to each other. Two strong personalities that really had me hooked. Becca: I agree with Lisa on everything and two strong personalities is right! These two had me rolling on the floor laughing as they constantly tried to outdo one another. I absolutely loved the chemistry between them! “No one in their right mind would try to provoke you, Jenna. You’re like a caged cat in heat. All claws and teeth. You’re already provoked- and you have been since the moment I met you. So why don’t you calm down and get back on the freeway.” He looks around “Where are we anyway?” “Oh I’ll tell you where we are.” I point a finger in the air and lift my chin… “we’re at your final destination.” Ha Ha Ha this was just one moment, but there are so many! These two are perfect together and apart. They are my favorite type of character, fun, strong, sarcastic and flawed. I could seriously gush and gush all day :) The other characters in this book are perfect too! Jack’s brothers and Mother are so genuine and such good people who have fallen on bad times. Jenna’s Mother, Grandmother and sisters are funny and warm and so endearing. I loved her cousins too, they had me cracking up… “What if you get lost?” What if you get robbed?”Callie says. “What if you get eaten?” Alyssa adds in a low voice… “I don’t want anyone to eat you.” OMG Chelsea Fine – how do you make me fall in love with all of your characters!? OVERALL: Becca: Chelsea Fine impressed me with this story because it was very different from the others. Don’t get me wrong I loved all three books. This one was different from the others because it was so sarcastic and funny, then dramatic and edgy and finally heart-warming. It had it all! I really enjoy companion novels and I am still holding out for Ellen’s story. I love how she has been such an integral part of each couples journey and I think that she deserves her own. Overall I just loved everything about this book and the entire Finding Fate series. After I read all 3 books I feel like I am a part of the Willow Inn family and Chelsea Fine is definitely on my list of Must Read Authors!! “I want to be with you he says “Because I hurt when you hurt. and I’m happy when you’re happy – and not because you have control over me, but because I love you. And I like loving you.” Lisa: Helen’s story!! YES! I would absolutely love that. We really get to know her in all three of these books, especially Best Kind of Broken. But even in this story, we’re left with a hope that Helen will find more in her life soon. Please, Chelsea, show us Helen’s world a bit more? *fingers crossed* I totally agree with Becca that this series really makes us feel like part of the Willow Inn family. This group of characters is all so unique, yet heart-warming and welcoming. I love them all! Definitely a favorite series of mine. Way to go, Chelsea! This is a must-read series for anyone that enjoys the New Adult genre. It’s overloaded with sexy scenes and fillers. It’s the perfect combination of real-life situations and drama, a dash of suspense, a few issues, wonderful romance, and tons of fun! (Thanks to Forever Romance for the review copy!)

"Love is the absence of control and the presence of faith. And you won't truly be happy until you surrender to it." I have been really excited for Jack and Jenna's book for quite some time now. After meeting them in Best Kind of Broken, I was hoping we would get their story because I love the whole good friends turning more arc. Chelsea's stories always leave my heart so happy and full. Her characters are relatable and fun, and she creates such delicious sexual tension between them that you feel as if you are going to burst at the seams yourself from wanting the two to realize their feelings for one another! Jack and Jenna have become good friends since starting college life in Arizona. However, their friendship is currently.... well, a bit awkward. After spending the night together the previous year, they still have not discussed what happened between them. Which definitely makes for some weird moments, especially when it's obvious they are thinking about the night's events. Jenna refuses to acknowledge what happened and Jack won't bring it up. Therefore, the two are stuck in friend limbo. A road trip back to Louisiana will force the two to reexamine their friendship and feelings for one another, as they can't deny the simmering attraction between them. Jenna Lacombe is one stubborn girl. So stubborn in fact, that I wanted to slap her a few times for being crazy. She has this great, sexy guy who happens to be someone she can trust implicitly and yet, she pushes him away because he's not a part of 'the plan'. Jenna craves control. She has seen firsthand the effects of what loving a man can do from her mother and she refuses to follow down that same path. Jenna only allows herself to see the negative effects of her mom's single-parenting. Her grandmother tries to help put things in perspective for her, but ultimately Jenna will have to see that allowing herself the chance to love doesn't mean her life will turn out the same way. Jack, on the other hand, wants to have a relationship with Jenna. There's no doubt in his mind the two shared a connection that night together and he wants that again. He is frustrated that Jenna acts like that night never happened and I think he's a bit hurt as well. He is a good guy with a big heart and Jenna is a crazy person for not embracing that sooner than she did. I like the sub plotline with Jack's family. He has taken on a lot of responsibility, being the eldest son in the family. Being back home, he realizes pushing his family away the way he did was not right and I'm glad we got to see him realize that and want to make things right. His family history is not the cleanest and he has some history of his own that he is not proud to admit. Catching a ride with Jenna so he can get back home to help them seems ideal at the time, but he never wanted Jenna to get involved with his past, let alone find out the things he had to do. He is sure she will freak out and run for the hills and he'll lose her forever. As I said earlier, Fine creates some amazing sexual tension between her characters and this book is no exception. In fact, I think it may be the hottest of all three in the series! I loved seeing and feeling their connection to one another. Jenna wants to let Jack in, but she is terrified of the after effects. He makes her feel and she knows she's in love with him. She just can't bring herself to admit that to him, which hurts him and frustrates him, as he sees it too. They have such great banter together also. They fight and piss each other off, but it's just a front to their real feelings for one another. They fight passionately, because they love passionately and that is what makes it all the more exciting. "A voice is an inescapable lover, unbidden and undeniable. You cannot unhear an enticing phrase or a whispered word, just as you cannot unfeel the heated breath that accompanies such things. And Jack's voice, especially when saying my name, is my total undoing." Fans of the series will be happy to see Daren, Kayla, Ellen, Pixie, and Levi make small appearances. They don't play huge roles, but just enough to give us some insight as to how they are doing, which I'm always glad for. Overall, I loved this one. I love Jack and Jenna together and how they are a support for one another. They are true friends to the core and it makes me giddy to see a romance form out of such a friendship. I enjoyed the storyline, felt the connection between the characters, and I cannot wait for whatever Fine does next!

Chelsea Fine has totally done it again! In her newest addition to her Finding Fate series, Right Kind of Wrong, Chelsea takes us back to Arizona with her beautifully developed characters and their stories.  Bringing back my favorites, Pixie, Levi, Daren and Kayla, as well as the beloved Ellen, I was in love with the story from the beginning.  In this story, she develops in more depth the exotically eccentric Jenna Lacombe and the hard core Jack Oliver. Both being from Louisiana, Jenna and Jack shared an instant attraction.  They met a few years ago working in the same bar in Arizona and have been inseparable, until that one night last winter when they succumbed to the desires they both felt for each other. Jack Oliver moved to Arizona to start over.  To leave behind his old life, where he could be a new person, a different person and finish his education to become a counselor.  After moving so far from home, fate threw him a curveball by the name of Jenna Lacombe.  Who would've thought that moving so far away from home to meet the love of his life, when the one girl who captured his heart was always only a few hours away from where he grew up in Louisiana.  Jack has such a strong heart for love and like everything else in his life does is passionately.  Although, even though he knows how he feels and wants Jenna so badly, she has a plan which he's not part of. Jenna Lacombe grew up poor and without a father in New Orleans.  Her mother and grandmother have always been there to help take care of her, but she vowed that she would never love or depend on a man because her plan was she would make a life of her own, on her own.  But love has a way of slamming into you when you least expect it or when you want it.  That's what happened when she met Jack Oliver.  Since then, she has been trying to keep herself from falling and drowning in everything Jack.  However, when fate has them taking a cross country trip together back to NOLA, things begin to awaken in her and she will never be the same again. Will Jack and Jenna keep fighting the love they have?  Can Jenna stop fighting her instincts by sticking to her "plan"?  Read this book!!!! It is an amazing story, like all the rest of Chelsea's novels.  These characters will entrap you in their saga and keep you on a perpetual pendulum of need.  I can't wait to see who will be next in the Finding Fate series.  I'm rooting for Ellen!  Again, another beautiful story, Chelsea! ~TSRBR Hero -  5.0 stars Heroine - 4.5 stars Steam Level: 4.5 stars Plot: 4.5 stars Cliffhanger: No Would I recommend this book: Yes!  This book will drive you crazy and then take you to a place of contentment and peace. Would I read other books by this author: Yes!  I can't begin to express the beautifully written stories that Chelsea Fine has created!  She is a master at her craft!  I totally love everything she writes! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

Chelsea Fine is quickly becoming one of my favorite new adult authors and it's because of the books in the Finding Fate series. I loved both Best Kind of Broken and Perfect Kind of Trouble. (Though, personally, I preferred PKoT to BKoB.) Now I can say Chelsea's done it again with Right Kind of Wrong.  Right Kind of Wrong is Jenna and Jack's story. We know they have a past (even though we don't know *exactly* what happened at the beginning) and there's a pretty strong attraction to each other. Now their past is about to collide with their present as they embark on a road trip from Arizona to Louisiana, where they grew up fairly close to each other.  I loved Jenna. I loved Jack. Together, they were damn near perfection. The air around them snapped and crackled with sexual tension and something MORE. In a slight role reversal, Jack was more than happy to admit the feelings he had for Jenna, but she was closed off. Determined not to make the same mistake her mother did, Jenna avoided relationships. She had a plan and romance wasn't part of it. Scared she would ultimately give up her dreams for the dreams of a significant other, she hooked up and kept things light and avoided things when they started to get serious. Jack was serious. The connection between them was strong and it frightened her. So, she avoided him. Which worked pretty well until they embarked on their road trip. Then things got interesting. Jack's family drama was surprising to me. I wasn't expecting something quite like it in this book. But, it worked. It kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how it would all shake out in the end. There were some pretty tense moments along the way and the suspense added another layer to my enjoyment of the book. In addition to these moments, there were some seriously sexy scenes. With the sexual tension between Jack and Jenna, I figure things would get hot when they finally gave in. I just didn't know how hot. Dang.  Right Kind of Wrong was a fantastic book. Once I started it, I couldn't even think of putting it down. The dynamic between the characters sucked me in from the start. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and appreciated watching both of them grow throughout the story. Jenna's transition was the most powerful to me, though. She was so strong and so independent and had her walls up so high. I enjoyed watching Jack chip away at them bit by bit until they crumbled all together. I appreciated most that she didn't change for HIM, but for herself. With the help of strong women around her, she realized you can have it all – when it's right. And it was right with these two.  I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

Wonderful chemistry! I received an advance reader edition of this book from Forever Grand Central Publishing and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review. 4.5 Stars I guess it is official....I love Chelsea Fine's writing. I have had the chance to read exactly 3 books written by Chelsea Fine and have enjoyed each and everyone of them. I literally consumed this book. I ended up reading the whole book in a single day. I had a lot of fun with this quick, easy read. This book is the third book in the Finding Fate series but it could very easily be read as a stand alone novel. This book focuses on Jenna and Jack. We first met Jenna in Best Kind of Broken. She became best friends with Pixie in college, where they are roommates. Jenna and Jack are friends who met through working at the local bar. They are both drawn to each other and have acted on that one time but have never talked about it. Jenna is determined to not get herself involved in any kind of relationship. When Jenna's mom calls to tell her that her grandmother thinks that the end may be coming (which she apparently does every year or two), she decides a road trip home to New Orleans is in order. It just so happens that Jack is from a small town near New Orleans and his family is in the middle of a crisis. One thing leads to another, and the pair are off on a road trip together. During the road trip, they learn quite a bit about each other and their feeling for one another. Without question, Jack made this story. His character was loving, funny, and fierce when needed. He was not afraid to say what he felt and he was willing to risk everything for his family. I found that I liked Jenna but wanted to smack her a few times. She was so hung up on her master plan that she refused to see what was right in front of her. The chemistry between the characters was amazing. I actually felt that they needed to be together. I would definitely recommend this book to others. Chelsea Fine's writing is well thought out with a plot that keeps the reader engaged in the story. I plan to continue reading this series and hope to read other works by this author.
