Overview

Lane Bishop is a hardworking, intelligent, beautiful young woman. And with her recent move to Chapel Hill, she is determined to leave behind the drama and effort of keeping up with the dating scene. Even so, Lane somehow manages to get dragged out by a gaggle of girls to watch a bunch of guys play soccer. But just watching is not Lane’s forte, so she joins in the fun and leads her team to victory. Rather than feeling intimidated by the vivacious beauty on the opposing team, Jamie Hamilton is intrigued. Risking his “untouchable” dating status, he decides to pursue Lane—with a little help from his older brother Simon. With Simon’s behind-the-scenes assistance, Jamie proves irresistible, even to a disillusioned dater like Lane. But as she gets to know both brothers, Lane can’t help but wonder—beneath the grand gestures and romantic words, is she falling for the wrong guy?

I absolutely loved this book!! Wrong for You is a sweet, fun romance that has fantastic writing. Lane Bishop falls quickly for one of the very eligible, very chased-after Hamilton brothers. But it isn't long before she wonders if she's fallen for the wrong one. I loved Lane and her spunk, Jamie and his competitiveness, and Simon's consistency. I was hooked from the very beginning--when Lane challenges the boys in a soccer match. One of my favorite meet cutes to date! It had me smiling through the entire scene. Highly recommended!

Sometimes a book just squishes my heart and resonates with my soul and that's exactly how this one is. I spent a fair amount of time in a YSA ward (LDS) and this really brought back some long forgotten feelings. Lane is starting a new job and is back in North Carolina. She's bi-racial and I love how that aspect is touched on, because although we live in a more progressive society, there are still some prejudices floating around and it's vaguely apparent in this book. Lane isn't afraid of competition, and in fact, thrives on it. That first meeting with the Unobtainable Foursome (brothers) is classic and they all immediately captured my interest. I love how little pieces of Lane are attracted to different parts of Simon and Jamie, two of the brothers. Through a series of texts between the brothers, as well as some dire moments for Lane, where she desperately needs help, the reader comes to know these characters and their diverse personalities. I found myself smiling, swooning, and hoping for a happy ending as I turned these pages and I enjoyed every minute of it. This is a great read for those who enjoy clean, new adult, contemporary romance with some religious undertones. Content: clean romance; mild religious elements. *I received a complimentary copy.

I've literally just finished this book, and have actual tears pouring down my face, and I'm filled with all the tingly that the final few pages just gave me... well and the last page - OK, that was pretty awesome way to end a book! I wasn't sure how I was going to feel as I progressed through this story. One girl, two brothers. I'm always a bit skeptical about this type of plot. However, I can solidly say that this one was done with sensitivity and class. The root beer float thing? I've never been in a LDS Singles Ward, so maybe that's a real thing, but I do love root beer floats, though maybe I'll never look at them the same again!!! As a Mormon author, Jenny does add enough elements of her faith into the pages that may seem unfamiliar to someone who wasn't LDS. However, I don't think this is a problem. I read enough Christian lit that is written by authors who are always writing in elements of their worship, that while may seem a little foreign or different to me - I can fully embrace it in the spirit it is meant. I actually was really appreciative that Jenny included some references to God in regards to the circumstances the characters found them in. I never feel like the LDS authors go there as freely as other Christian authors do, and I really wish they would! I love that aspect of a novel, it brings so much richness and inspiration, along with the escape of a good book. So, what I am trying to say is, even though this book is written and marketed probably at mostly LDS members, I recommend Jenny's books to other bookish friends. She writes with skill and on a par with many clean Christian fiction authors, that sell their books and are widely known through the national marketplace. Set in North Carolina, I swear this author is intent on getting us all to come visit the state!! I have fallen in love with her locations through her books. If I could jump in a car and start driving to NC right now, I would!! I'm not even going to attempt a breakdown of the plot or story, because seriously I don't want to spoil anything for you. I loved this book, I loved that Emma & Elliot (Love at First Note) appeared in a small cameo, I loved the location, the characters - so diverse with such a depth that even the minor characters with leave you convinced of the significant part they play. I'm not usually a fan of 'texts' or 'emails' within stories, well, that is unless its overdone. Not the case here. It was a clever way to add an alternate insight without having to write all major characters point of view. Keeping it to just Lane, kept the story streamlined, but the inclusion of the Hamilton brothers group text was genius. Thank you to Jenny Proctor & Covenant Communications for the copy I won through a giveaway. This is my honest review.
