Hello there! waves Lia Riley’s Right Wrong Guy, the second book in the Brightwater series is here, and I’m so excited because Archer Kane = Sexy Sexy. There’s a review, a giveaway, a playlist, the works. Follow the rest of the Right Wrong Guy tour here 😀
The fun and flirty second installment in Lia Riley’s fantastic Brightwater series.
Sometimes two wrongs can make a right…
Bad boy wrangler, Archer Kane, lives fast and loose. Words like responsibility and commitment send him running in the opposite direction. Until a wild Vegas weekend puts him on a collision course with Eden Bankcroft-Kew, a New York heiress running away from her blackmailing fiancé…the morning of her wedding.
Eden has never understood the big attraction to cowboys. Give her a guy in a tailored suit any day of the week. But now all she can think about is Mr. Rugged Handsome, six-feet of sinfully sexy country charm with a pair of green eyes that keeps her tossing and turning all night long.
Archer might be the wrong guy for a woman like her, but she’s not right in thinking he’ll walk away without fighting for her heart. And maybe, just maybe, two wrongs can make a right.
There are your typical man-whores, and then there is Archer Kane.
Confession time: I don’t buy the whole womaniser turning into a one-woman-man because he takes one look at the girl and changes/mends/feels guilty about his ways. And if the writing in this overdone plot is anything less than fantastic, you can be assured of my frosty, if civil response to said book.
But like I said, there’s every other man-whore on the God’s green earth, and then standing on the other side, with his hands in his jeans pocket, smirking, is Archer Kane.
Archer meets New York hotshot Eden Bankcroft-Kew in Vegas and there are these little sparks. The most wonderful kind, the sweet, kind that land on your skin and are gone before you can react. They are these two complete strangers who have sparks between them and heaven help me, that is the closest I will ever get to admit in believing in the concept of love at first sight.
Eden, who is running from her idiot fiancé on her wedding day, happens to find Archer, who is also escaping. Except, he’s escaping from his ladies from the previous night. And after a really cute, fluffy meet and greet, Eden decides to accompany Archer to Brightwater. Which, okay, is stupid because I would never, EVER, do that. Warning: Readers, never hitch a ride with a stranger, no matter how cute he is. Stranger danger, okay?
Anyway, throughout their journey, it becomes clear that Archer sees Eden. He sees her beauty and her (s)ass, but he also sees that she genuinely needs a friend. And that’s how this starts, you guys. No immediate nookie. Just friendship. And that is what made me feel all the things, because Archer Kane made an amazing friend. He was kind and helpful and gah, that made me Eden want him even more.
If I were to give you one character that took the book away for me, it would be Edie. Obviously, there was a lot of growing up for Archer to do, and he did that, but Edie just stole the show. She was rich, but she was also lonely and I could immediately that Brightwater was home to her. And there were so many things that happened with her—obviously small towns are naturally suspicious of new arrivals. She had to make completely new friends in a town full of people who wouldn’t trust her. And opening a bakery is no child’s play—she had to work her ass off to make sure everyone in town accepted it (rivalries, yo). And of course, there’s the whole thing with her falling for a guy who is apparently always chasing skirt around town.
Archer did his own growing up in his own way—all thanks to his need of wanting to be someone Edie would consider, and Grandma Kane’s incessant badgering. Mostly the badgering. Whatever the reason, Archer became responsible and when you’ll read you’ll see exactly how hot men on ranches are. And in true Lia Riley fashion, the dialogues, the inner monologues, the disasters were all hilarious! There was this one scene with a leech on a cock and you just have to read it to believe it! The Kane brothers are something else entirely and that is seen in this particular book. I was never very comfortable with siblings being jealous or rivals of each other but that’s been brought into a whole new light here.
It was so, so good to see Sawyer and Annie again because, obviously, and again, no sign of Wilder. WHERE in the fuck is this guy? All in all, I’d say Right Wrong Guy was funnier and sexier than Last First Kiss, simply because of Archer and Edie’s sweet, kind of flirty banter and their kisses that were ASDFLKJHFG.
