My childhood was perfect.
I’ve led a charmed life, and I’m not going to blow it now
by picking the wrong guy.
I’ve got my sights set on my brother’s best friend.
He’s known my family for years. He’s reliable and kind and handsome.
Sure, he’s been avoiding me since I was six.
I’m a bit aggressive for him, maybe.
But he’s the one… right?
RIGHT is a standalone novel by Jana Aston
Right was so much fun to read, and it did give me other feels as well – I have to admit to some tears at one point, even. I loved getting to know Everly better, she’s even more amazing up close and personal than she was as Sophie’s friend in Wrong!
I can’t believe how much I laughed while reading Right! Everly is a hoot, and I’d love to be friends with her – especially if I didn’t need her meddling… Because she was very good at meddling in her friends’ lives – it all came from a good place, but the results weren’t always what she anticipated when she started out with her plans. I was already pretty curious about Everly when I read Wrong, and I loved to see her completely off balance with Sawyer.
Sawyer… *sighs* the name alone got to me – thank you, Lost! – and I think he was exactly the kind of person Everly needed in her life. Someone who was able to deal with all her antics and craziness in stride, and who could give her back a little of her own medicine. I loved that both Sawyer and Everly had flaws, but their confidence and sheer love for life made up for those in a big way. The friendship and easy, sexy banter between Sawyer and Everly made me tingle with anticipation, and I also loved how loyal Everly was to everyone she cared about.
When Sawyer suddenly gave Everly the cold shoulder, I was just as clueless as she was when it came to the reasoning, and I really thought things would be over between them 🙁 Everly wasn’t ready to lower her arms, roll over and let the relationship die, though, and after wallowing in her sadness for a few days, she was ready to take on the world – and Sawyer once more – only to have even more trouble thrown her way.
Written mostly from Everly’s point of view, in first person past tense, Right managed to let me know the characters well enough to enjoy them, and the dialogues were well done – making me laugh, get teary-eyed and filled with hot anticipation for what would happen next. The pace is very even, and the flow just made me read the whole story in one sitting! Aston managed to make Right even better than Wrong, and she made me a very happy reader.
Just because Sawyer can kiss – and okay, just because I’m attracted to him – doesn’t make him the right one for me. Not for the long haul and that’s what I’m interested in. I can’t date them both. Once you date one brother, the other is off limits. for life. I don’t even need Chloe telling me to know that.
But just because you’re attracted to someone doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to act on it. The road to hell is paved with attractive men who radiate sex appeal and look like models form a Polo ad campaign. Or something like that.
I laugh then. This guy, he’s… I don’t know. He’s not what I expected. I wonder if he puts this much effort into all his conquests. And then I wonder what that might be like, being with Sawyer. His attention to detail, putting this much effort into seducing me, makes me suspect he’d be just as attentive in the bedroom. Or hallway. Car. Whatever.
