~ 4 Not the Wrong Choice Stars ~
What lengths would you be willing to go to to help your family??
That’s the question that is raised and answered in One Wrong Choice.
So I have to be honest and say I really had a love/hate relationship with this book. One Wrong Choice is the third book in Terri E Laine and A.M. Hargrove’s Cruel and Beautiful Series. I have all the books in this series and I am sad to say this one wasn’t my favorite. Now that’s not to say I didn’t like the book, because I did, there was just one major aspect of the storyline that is a hard limit for me, so I kind of took away from the book and my overall enjoyment.
I would’ve loved to give this book 5 stars, because it had my heart racing, my heart breaking, my anger flowing and my panties melting. Which are all factors for a 5 star read for me. What took a star away for me was that, although not your typical love triangle, it had aspects of a triangle and that is what turned me off. One of the main reasons I don’t like a triangle in a story is because the heroine of the story tends to be wishy washy and usually pretty annoying and that is exactly what happened with Jenna ( the heroine ) by the end of the book I lost interest in Jenna and I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at her.
Now with that said let me tell you what I loved about this story. Brandon made this book for me. I absolutely loved him and his character. Not only is he a tatted mechanic with a hot body, he was loyal to a fault. He would do anything for Jenna, his mom and his younger brother. And yes he know how to melt a pair of panties. Now he isn’t without his flaws and brokenness, but he won my heart from the very first meeting of him. I couldn’t help but root for him to get the HEA.
I style love the writing style of Terri and A.M.. Their writing is seamless and flows together perfectly. I absolutely love when two authors join forces to create a story. What is truly remarkable is when their writing style mesh so well you can’t tell who wrote what part. The flow of this story was amazing. These two authors know how to suck their readers into the story and keep them turning the pages until the very end. You can’t help but feel like you are a part of these characters lives.
Now I know I said this was a standalone novel and it is because it is based on a new couple. But the heroine of the story is someone we meet in the other books, so there is character overlap. Also the storylines kind of overlap in time with the other two books, so this is a series of books I feel need to be read in order. Because I believe book 2 (A Mess of A Man) and this book would be a HUGE spoiler for book 1 (Cruel and Beautiful). I will say the authors do an excellent job filling in the holes when needed, so if you don’t read the previous books you won’t be lost, you’ll just know what happens in those books.
I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t have trouble reading love triangles and loves a book with a lot of angst, because this book has plenty 😉 I would also recommend this whole series to anyone who loves an emotional read, one that breaks your heart but in the end puts it back together.
