The Hero
Archer Kane, is the one brother that his grandmother is gearing up to take over the ranch, if Archer will stop avoiding his responsibilities to himself and the family. Archer and his two brothers lost their parents when they were young, and they were raised by their grandmother. His grandmother took over running the ranch after losing her husband after five years of marriage. She takes control and has had to be the leader since she was in her twenties. Archer is a bit wild and untamed, enjoys a life of drinking and too many women. When he wakes up with three women in his bed and not remembering a thing. Archer realizes this is not what he wants in his life. His plan is to head back home, and back to his duties to the ranch and to his grandmother. Archer is charismatic, fun and is pretty sexual. But he also wants more in his life and goes after it. He mans up to his past. It was interesting seeing Archer turn his life around and we that certain qualities have always been in Archer, he just hides it real well. Love how sweet he is with Eden.
The Heroine
Eden made a promise to her dying mother, that she would marry and carry on the prestige of the family name. So she agrees to marry a man her mother picked out for her. She puts her heart and soul into the relationship but then when she learns the truth about her fiancee and how he has been playing her, she takes a new course on life. Eden, upon meeting Archer, moves to Brightwater. A small town in California, but is just right for what Eden needs. But Eden needs to decide what to do. She has quite a fortune but she wants to do something fun and meaningful and help the community. So she decides to open up a coffee and bakery shop. Baking is her passion and she wants to share that with these small town folks who live a simple life. Eden is sweet and kind, stands on her own feet. I really liked her character because of how easy I could relate with her.
Plot and Story Line
Right Wrong Guy is a story that takes us from the big city to a small rural town where we discover love and committment in ways we dont expect. When we first meet these two, we see their lives before they "meet up" and boy both of them are wanting to make changes in life. Then they bump into each other at a coffee shop. We see how right they are for each other. They have chemistry and hit it off in their personalities pretty quick---in just one interaction. But both Eden and Archer know it's the wrong time for them. But then Eden takes a leap of faith and asks Archer for a ride to Brightwater. She has a friend that lives there and it seems like the perfect place to lay low for a while until she decides what to do after fleeing her wedding. Archer is intrigued and spell bound by Eden, he wants her but he is also consumed by her. He just can't get enough and wants more. But Eden wants time, she has heard plenty of stories about Archer's sexual adventures and after being hurt, she doesn't want to jump into the fire of another failed relationship. But Archer is determined to prove to Eden he will wait for however long it takes to show that he truly cares for her in a real and long term way.

I'm into you, okay? YOU. Only you. I'm all up to my ears with the idea of you.

This is a story that I fell instantly for. Now I bought this book months ago and I thank Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook for getting this book. But then this week I realized I really wanted to read this. Especially with the third book just becoming released, I wanted to see what I thought of this author before I read her. And boy was I blown away. Before I realized it the book was over, I just was so consumed by this story I didn't even realize how fast I was turning the pages. This was a sweet and passionate love story that swept me away into the heart of it.

The emotions that this book conveys was so real and what a fantastic story teller this author is. She pulls the reader right into it, and you get locked away into the plot with the emotions vivid and the story that comes alive. This is a romance that is developed with two people who may seem wrong at first but end up being perfectly right. It's about taking that leap of faith and hitting the treasure chest. I love the development of the plot and seeing what holds these two together when conflict erupts. LOVED EVERY MOMENT!!
The Cover
What a gorgeous cover....one of my favorites of the year. Its sweet and romantic and you can get lost in it. Love the kiss and the pose here, as if these two can't get enough of each other.
Overall View
Right Wrong Guy is a stimulating romance that is lighthearted, fun and tender----one of the best romances this year!! You can't go wrong with Lia Riley as the story teller. A Love story that is packed with growth, passion and a love worth fighting for. ( )

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my opinion in any shape or form.

I’ve been in this reading funk where I’m just not in the mood to read or if I start reading I can put the book down and go about my business. But Right Wrong Guy definitely was my exception. It’s that perfect light contemporary romance that can get you out of any reading funk you maybe in. AND DID I MENTION A HOT COWBOY? No, well there you go. What better reason to read Right Wrong Guy?

Right Wrong Guy is the second book in the Bridgewater Series by Lia Riley and can be read as a standalone. But honestly you can kind of read Right Wrong Guy first then Last First Kiss because events overlap and you get the bigger picture.

It is written in third person. It is rare these days that I read third person but I really enjoyed Lia’s approach. I personally would have loved to have been inside both Archer’s and Eden’s mind but I was really happy with what I got.

Eden at times was hard to connect with. She often made it difficult for me to like her simply because she was a bit weak and that really annoyed me. I wanted her to be as fierce as she was trying to be but sometimes that was lacking. She really pulled off the pamper princess thing and I was really afraid I’d hate her throughout the entire book but she turned out better than okay.

Archer, well he’s a hot cowboy what more can I say? I’m kidding. But he’s also sweet, incredibly loyal and one hell of a man.

What I loved most about Right Wrong guy was the fact that both characters took a chance. They wanted to right the wrongs they’ve made in their lives. I personally loved how the title played out in the story.

Seriously, I swooned so many times through out the book. Grandma Kane had my heart melting. Archer definitely had me melting to a puddle. And at the end of the morning (it’s three am as I type this) I can honestly say I have a huge smile on my face and my heart is pretty content with this book.

I do plan on continuing this series especially because book three sounds AMAZING. I personally thought it was about Kit but hopefully a book about him is in the works because I’d love to read it and Grandma Kane’s love story would be a perfect novella for this series. I’m just doing wishful thinking but really I’m really enjoying this series and look forward to whatever Lia Riley writes next.

Ever since I read Last First Kiss, I needed more Archer Kane in my life. When I read about him and later on Edie, I wanted those two to get together ASAP. I had no idea they had met quite that way so it was nice to have the author write that story, even before Last First Kiss happened. They had chemistry right from the start and I was so rooting for them!

Edie overheard her fiance talking shit behind her back to someone else. Apparently, he was only interested in the money. When she meets Archer, she’s captivated by him but brushes it off. Long story short, they end up on their way to Brightwater, where Edie is looking to stay and make it her new home. Reading about these two going back and forth was interesting and hot at the same time. You could cut the sexual tension with a knife! They obviously wanted each other but Edie was scared to take the plunge, which lead Archer a bit heartbroken. I mean, the only woman he has his eyes on and she rejects him. But he really wants Edie and he decides to give her all the time she needs to find herself and then make the decision. Edie has heard the rumors of Archer being the man-whore of the town and it bothers her at first but then, she decides to forget it. The past is the past and both are ready to start anew.

Archer grew a lot in this book. I found him to be a bit immature in the first book and not quite there. But in his own story, he grows out of it and tries to be more of a gentleman and even takes over a big responsibility given to him by Grandma Kane. Both her and Edie kept Archer on his toes for the better. He is so charmingly hot! His story as well as Edie’s were a great addition to this series.

This book was very flirty, with witty banter and a cute and hot romance. ( )
