Kylie Stafford has spent her whole life doing exactly what's expected. The right major, the right sorority, the right guys, just like her mother and her sister before her. But when everything falls apart for her, Kylie wonders if doing everything right has been utterly wrong. There's only one way to find out. 

She decides to try making all the wrong choices for three months. Hit on a tattoo-covered rock musician? Check. Go back to his dressing room for a hot hook-up against the wall? Gulp. Drop everything to be a roadie for him to binge on more of the best sex of her life? Maybe. Start falling for him despite her better judgment? Um….yeah. Figure out why doing everything that seems wrong feels so darn right?

Sweet and sexy rock star romance I enjoyed reading this book very much. The story is very romantic and sweet. There are twists and unsaid truths. Instant connection and chemistry that is almost palpable. Sexy and hot scenes. Hero and heroine that cannot keep their hands off of each other. Great banter between those two and other characters in the book. I fell in love with the main characters and I hope to see them more in the other parts of this series.

The characters in Author Christi Barth’s appear to be complete opposites but find they are very much alike. Their traits and faults will have readers relating and pulling for them. They are well-developed and likable. The setting sizzles much like the chemistry between the main characters. Readers are quickly pulled in and find themselves immersed in the actions of the characters. The story flow at a good pace, smoothly and with heart-pounding romance. This is a quick read that will leave you smiling and taking a different look at how you perceive your choices. THE OPPOSITE OF RIGHT is romance, passion, self-awakening and insight rolled into an entertaining steamy novella you won’t put down until the very end. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

The Opposite of Right by Christi Barth is the 1st book in her new Bad Decisions series. I always enjoy Christi’s writing, as she does sweet sexy romances, with fun stories. The Opposite of Right is no different. I really enjoyed reading this book, as well as the characters. Kylie Stafford is our heroine, and a fun, smart and savvy one she is. Kylie is coming off one of the worst days of young life. Having just graduated, she loses her internship, her boyfriend and her apartment. While sitting at a bar with her friend, she decides that after always being the girl who does the right thing, it was time to try to do the wrong thing. She sees a hot looking man standing near the bar, and decides it was time to do the “wrong” thing, by kissing the stranger. What Kylie did not know was that the man she just kissed was the lead singer of the rock band Riptide. Cam Watson is our hero, and he is shocked when the pretty young girl asks for a kiss. Cam could tell she had no idea who he was, though she later tells him she was at the bar to see her favorite band, Riptide. Cam is immediately attracted to Kylie, as he senses she is different than the groupies who follow them. When his goodie girl has to go in the hospital for surgery, Cam when he learns about Kylie’s bad daty, decides to ask her if she would help the band out for 4 weeks, taking orders, and manning the tables. What follows is a slow to build sweet romance, that starts off with Kylie and Cam being friends with benefits. Their chemistry was very hot, and I loved them together. Cam finds himself falling hard for Kylie, but isn’t sure his wild life style is for her. Kyle also does not think anything will come of their relationship, and needs to concentrate on finding herself a job when this temporary job is finished. Cam was such a wonderful character, despite his wild life style. He was so sweet and caring to Kylie, not to mention very very sexy. Kylie was a fun character, who enjoyed her naughtiness in spending time with her rock star and the band. Is there any hope of a future for Cam & Kylie? I also enjoyed the other main characters, Cam’s two bandmates and Kylie’s best friend. A perfect group of characters for Christi to use in the future stories. The Opposite of Right was a fun, sexy, and quick read that I really enjoyed. I know you will love it too.

It was truly serendipity when recent college graduate Kylie Stafford learned her internship had fallen through, her boyfriend dumped her and she decided to do the wrong thing for awhile, all on the same day. Rock star Cam Watson just happened to be in her path when she made that decision and he changed everything. Kylie's infectious personality is a bit captivating and she's smart, resourceful and fun to be around. Her decision to tour with Cam's band for the next month might seem impulsive but it was the best match for her love life and career. Don't let her age fool you into thinking this is a typical New Adult drama and angst here. There are some very strong themes that resonate in this story (following your own path, seizing the moment, knowing your own heart and mind) and they're wrapped around Kylie and Cam in their romance and career choices. They make for some really heated moments (both the steamy and steamed) that spice up the story. The band is pretty tame in comparison to others I've read but the vibe feels true. Cam is the leader and primary songwriter and Kylie certainly earns her role as his muse. This was a fun and flirty story grounded in serious issues and dilemmas. It's short but isn't rushed in its storytelling. I really enjoyed it and am curious as to what comes next. (I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review)

What a fun read! The Opposite of Right by Christi Barth is the first book in her Bad Decisions Series and it was a great start. Kylie is sick of having her life planned out for her and always doing the right thing so she decides to make bad decisions to see what happens. She starts out by kissing a stranger who just happens to be famous rock god Cam Watson. From that spontaneous backstage kiss at a rock concert, things really take a turn for Kylie. She finds herself a new job, a hottie to spend some naughty times with and she figures out what she wants to do with her life. Along the way she just so happens to find love. When I first started reading The Opposite of Right, Kylie was a little awkward to me and I couldn’t get a feel for her. About 1/4 of the way into it, though, I found myself really engaged in her story. Kylie is smart, witty, fun, unique and I found myself pulling for her. Then there is Cam. Holy smokes. He is a hot, good boy rocker. He is awesomely genuine, sweet, responsible and sometimes can make bad decisions, unintentionally, which shows his vulnerable side. I fell in love with him from the beginning and I would give just about anything to hear him sing. The other two main band members, Jake and Jones have been best friends with Cam for a long time. You see that through their interactions both on stage and off. Sometimes they are jabbing fun at one another and other times they have some heated discussions. I really, really want to know more about them. The romance between Cam and Kylie built up at a nice pace for a novella. They had amazing chemistry and just an easy way with each other. Their friendship starts out light and continues on until there are deeper feelings. In addition to the playful scenes there are some sexy intimate scenes that show they are very compatible physically as well. Novellas with brand new characters can be tricky because there isn’t a lot of time to build up a plot with well developed characters, but Barth does a fantastic job with The Opposite of Right. She is able to engage the reader from the beginning and while we didn’t get to witness everything that happened between the characters, the connections between the scenes were smooth. Almost as if it had the feel of a longer story. If you are looking for a short, playful contemporary romance, I recommend you give The Opposite of Right a try. My first thought when I finished this book was, “I want more.” *I received an ARC of this book for the purpose of a review."
