The Wrong Kind of Love by Lexi Ryan

Title: The Wrong Kind of Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor, #1)

Author: Lexi Ryan

Publication Date: February 12, 2018


You never forget your wedding day. Or the moment your twin sister pukes on your bouquet and confesses she’s pregnant . . . with your fiancé’s baby.

I wanted to get away, to hide until my heart mended. I found myself in a strange town with a mysterious stranger whose talented mouth and hands almost made me forget it was supposed to be my wedding night.

Afraid to go home to face my broken life, I pretend to be my twin so I can take her job in Jackson Harbor caring for a six-year-old girl. Imagine my surprise when I find out my new boss is my mysterious stranger—Dr. Ethan Jackson.

I never meant for Ethan to discover my secrets. I never meant for them to matter. But the longer I work with him and his sweet daughter, the harder I fall, and the clearer it becomes that I’m not the only one carrying a secret that could tear us apart.

Natalie’s 3.5 Star Review

Lexi Ryan never disappoints when it comes to women wronged and broken men. She has a knack for crafting unique and emotional story lines that draw you in and take hold until the very last page. The Wrong Kind of Love is another great book full of love, betrayal, secrets and redemption.

On her wedding day Nicole is confronted with the worst betrayal one could imagine. Her twin sister is pregnant with her fiancé’s baby! Seriously!! Having your fiancé cheat on you with your identical twin sister… that’s a goldmine for juicy drama and angst! Then running off to lick her wounds and take a break from men Nic meets sexy single dad, Dr. Ethan Jackson, when she accepts a job as his nanny. The chemistry between the two is sizzling. Ethan has his own heartbreaking backstory that lends to not only his own hesitancy to form a new relationship but also his broody attitude. Once lies are told and secrets are kept I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

“I thought I was broken forever, and then you showed up. Now I want things I didn’t think I’d ever want again.”

I was invested in and excited for this new relationship yet anxious for how the story would play out. Like I said, the story line was ripe for epic craziness yet as I kept reading things began to slow down for me. I still enjoyed the story, I genuinely liked the characters, and I was still very much invested in the relationship between Nic and Ethan but I didn’t feel as if we got as much out of them and their situation as we could have. I actually craved more angst and turmoil. I wanted fists to fly and to have my heart ripped out. I wanted to celebrate and jump for joy when their happily-ever-after  finally came but instead things fell into place too easily and the last half of the book felt a bit rushed. It was a bit anticlimactic for my taste but I am still happy that I read the book.

Overall another solid, well written and constructed book. I am  very much looking forward to the continuation of this series and getting to know the rest of the Jackson family!
