Hey guys today I am here with my review of Wrong Place Right Time by Elle Casey
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?
Recived this book for review from netgally and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
a fun read with a great blend of action, humour, and romance.
We meet our two protagonists, Jenny and Dev, in book one in this series. While they have nothing to do with each other in the previous story we do get to know them a little. Jenny is a busy, single mom of three. Her ex-husband barely pulls his weight and she feels like all the responsibility of raising their children has landed at her feet. She may be overwhelmed but Jenny has no other option but to keep plugging away at life. Jenny finally has a couple of days to herself and all she wants to do is take a bath, drink some wine and sleep. But when her sister, May, asks her to do one consulting project for the Bourbon Street Boys, Jenny has a hard time saying no to her younger sister’s annoying persistence.
Jenny has no idea why she gave in to her sister’s pleas. What the Bourbon Street team is involved in is something she should stay far away from. After all, she needs to play it safe. She’s a mom! Almost immediately upon her arrival, Jenny gets wrapped up in the Bourbon Street world. She wants to run but it keeps sucking her in. The more time she spends with the team, the more they begin to change her perception of who they truly are. Of particular interest is the sexy, dimpled giant who makes her want to forget all the reasons that she needs to play it safe. The more she involves herself with the Bourbon Street Boys and with Dev himself, the harder she is finding it to keep herself from jumping on the Dev choo-choo train of lust.
I found this book to be a cute and funny read. Jenny’s inner rambling did make me giggle at times but they did become tedious at times. I did love the fact that she had a backbone and proved that she had some mad computer skills when it came to being a part of the Bourbon Street Boys team. Her relationship with Dev was a very slow build. They are both parents and finding the time to pursue the ever-growing feelings developing between the two of them was a hard task. It took quite some time for anything really substantial to happen between Jenny and Dev. Although, it was entertaining to watching and the giant alpha-male fall head over heels and get all tangled up in each other.
All in all, Wrong Place, Right Time was a great addition to this series. I took this book for what it is – a fun and light read that put a smile on my face
