Jenny’s single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny’s looking for adventure or romance—she’s the type of woman who believes in playing it safe.
When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys—a New Orleans private security firm—she knows she should stay away. They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm’s way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer…Problem is, there’s a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won’t quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.
Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she’s always done—play it safe and wait for the right time?

Loved this book! In it, Jenny is feeling overwhelmed by being a single parent to three young children and an ex-husband that acts like an irresponsible child. She is about to enjoy a rare weekend to herself, when her sister, May, convinces Jenny to help her (May's) employer with a computer challenge. Once there, Jenny's life is thrown off kilter, right down to being locked in against her will. Despite her discomfort, Jenny soon realizes that the Bourbon Street Boys are not quite what she thought. What follows is a totally engaging tale that will have you rooting for the characters. The characters are complex enough to feel real, yet sassy enough to make you laugh. Fans of the genre will love this book. While this is book 2 in a series, it is a stand alone novel
Wrong Place, Right Time is the second book in the Bourbon Street Boys Series and my first book I’ve read with Elle Casey. This can be read as a standalone but you will have all characters in each book. Jenny and Dev’s story is not the typical romance story. Both are single parents, Dev a single parent to child with Cerebral Palsy and Jenny a divorcee with 3 kids. They are in their thirties and just kind of beaten down by life. They meet when May, Jenny’s sister, brings her into the Bourbon Street Security fold to do some freelance work for them. Things don’t go well from day one. Despite all the trouble they go through, you can’t help but root for these two. Dev is a very big man, tall and full of muscle. You would think he would display pure alpha attitude but he is more of a teddy bear with insecurities about how big he is. Jenny, is a mom first and foremost and has trouble separating herself from being just a mom. This felt more real and what true life struggles are about. Their love story is slow building, sometimes uncomfortable yet beautiful all the same. I’m completely invested in these characters and will definitely go back to book one to read May and Ozzie’s story and wait anxiously for the third book in the series.

Very enjoyable book! The main female character Jenny is an absolute hoot! The story is told in her POV as she struggles through single motherhood after being recently divorced. She's content working at her mundane computer programming job and watching animal planet with her 3 kids. She doesn't understand her sister's new lifestyle after hooking up with her latest boyfriend and going to work for his security firm. That is until she's called in to help them with a special project and sees how nice it could be to work for herself and how much easier life would be! Enjoying her time there has nothing to do with the cute dimpled guy that also works there. Nope, nothing at all! Now Jenny has a choice to make, take a chance at a little excitement in her or life or stick with the boring existence she's currently living. Definitely a book I would recommend.
