Firstly, I didn’t like the first book in this series, Right Text Wrong Number. Not much at all, really. But I did like the backstory between Juliet and Jared after reading the book. As a result, I was anxious to read their story and hoped to enjoy this book more than the first. I was wrong. This book fell into many similar patterns that I disliked about the first book.
1) Juliet was a straight-up jerk. The way she treated Jared was 100% terrible and loathsome with no substantial basis for majority of the book. She basically holds her prejudices against him and seethes and glowers at him for saying hi. Even if the reader granted her a little grace and sympathy considering her ex and his behavior, she was awful. I didn’t understand that Juliet was hateful to Jared, then a bit friendlier to him, then lashing out on him when he showed concern for her. Then when he treats her in one/two scenes similarly to how she’s been treating him for weeks, she gets all weepy and pleads the victim, claiming he hurt me out of nowhere. What? For 60% of the book, I was wishing Jared was just move on and not look back. I also didn’t like that she was mainly the jerk but she hardly apologized. Jared did. Ugh! Personally, Layla and Tyler’s relationship in the first book was similar to this degree.
2) The romantic build sucked. It was basically one step forward, three steps back. Like, “this is not a date, then you hurt my feelings because you didn’t treat this like a date.” Or, “I’m going to be a jerk to you, then you hurt my feelings because you cut me out your life.” Or, “I’m going to show this girl I like her, I’m not going to officially cut ties with another girl.” I felt that the push-and-pull of the story wasn’t done effectively or correctly.
3) The ending was rushed, mostly because it felt like the lead characters didn’t evolve into their HEA. The ending was not necessarily out of nowhere, but it didn’t feel like the natural next step.
I realize the first thing anyone asks when someone rants about reading a book they clearly disliked is, “Then why did you read it?” Well, while I could have easily stopped reading at any given moment, I didn’t because I hate not finishing books. And, honestly, I was very hopeful. I liked the premise and backstory so much that I held out hope that the story might get better for me. Sadly, this wasn’t the case.
Overall, I did not like this book and I wouldn’t recommend it!
Juliet is angry at all boys. And love. And Valentine’s day. So when a bunch of love grams suddenly begin showing up for her, she assumes it’s Mark, still trying to apologize and win her back. Watching the push and pull of these two is cute and fun, but Juliet’s anger is palpable and there were times I honestly wondered why Jared didn’t give up. He goes all-in though, upping his game with each day that passes, until Juliet’s icy exterior begins to melt.
This is your basic teen romance. There’s not a heck of a lot more going on. It’s about Jared winning Juliet’s heart and Juliet doing everything she can to keep that from happening with Jared or anyone else. Some of it is predictable, but Natalie Decker’s style of writing is always entertaining. There were more than a few laugh-out-loud moments
Jared definitely has a lot going on at home with his dad insisting he run drills in the backyard every night, lift weights three nights a week, and never, ever, stop working toward an NFL career, even though that’s the last thing Jared wants. Even though Juliet’s home life is a bit more settled, she actually goes through more growth than Jared does, coming to terms with the fact that she doesn’t really hate all boys and that Mark is not the poster child for the gender.
Top Five Things I Enjoyed About RIGHT KISS WRONG GUY
1. Chase. I love straight guy best friends and Chase is a great one, with his eyes and heart set on Adeline.
2. Perseverance. In this world of #metoo, there is a fine line between determination and stalking, but Jared goes right up to that line without stepping over. His dedication to winning Juliet’s heart is sweet rather than creepy.
3. Jared. He’s a good guy, which is a refreshing change from most romantic alpha males.
4. Juliet. I loved her in the first book, but it took me a while to warm up to her in her own story. Her anger was over the top at times. Not that it wasn’t understandable, I mean anyone who had their heart ripped out during the teen years knows how all-consuming that can be, but I hated that she took it out on everyone around her. It was hard to sympathize with her at first. However, by about the 33% mark, I remembered what I loved about her.
5. Love. As much as Juliet claims to hate love (often broadcasting it with her choice of wardrobe), it wins out in the end.
This is a sweet young adult romance with plenty of laughs.
