Do books have souls?

Anna Black has the perfect novel choice for her book club. She also has a sexy new neighbor who jumps at the opportunity to join fellow bookworms in discussing her pick for their summer read.

It’s lust at first sight and the marriage of two literary souls.

The charismatic owner of a new T-shirt store in Des Moines’s East Village, Eric Steinmann, has a confident air and an irresistible “mating dance.” He’s almost perfect … until he says the wrong word.

Will Anna and Eric write their own story? Or will their chemistry die when fiction turns into reality?

*Right Guy, Wrong Word was originally written as a short story, The Last Person. It’s been revised with significant changes to the original content and extended into a full-length novel.*

Anna + Eric

Des Moines, Iowa. Anna and Eric live in the same building. It's kind of insta attraction on both sides. But when Eric joins Anna's book club and insults her favorite book, she insta hates him. Not really, she's still super interested, but why? Why must he be so annoying!? LOL!

I love that we get two completely 'average' twentysomethings here. Anna works in the office of a Bouldering Gym thing. And Eric is opening his own cool-slogans-T-Shirts shop. Well, okay, he's also kinda a rich boy who is just living his dream for a bit until he has to take over the family business! Lol.
I loved how adorable Eric 'courts' Anna. But I hated how awful she was most of the time. Why is she so effing weird about the book? So what if he doesn't like it - she doesn't have to break his heart and break up with him over it. Right?
I kinda hated her the first half of the book.
It got so much better when they meet again three years later. But also. Why? Why is she suddenly all grown up? It felt a bit weird.
I know this book used to be a short story and it was made into a full length novel. But I still felt that a lot of things were missing. Not really sure what... but ... things. I needed more of lots of everything. It felt so randomly thrown together at times. Weird. No idea what I'm talking about. LOL!
I still liked reading it. I loved Eric. He was great and sweet and smart and all the things. But he was also a bit immature in how he dealt with things.
But still. It was an adorable romance that might have needed a bit more time and editing and adding and taking out-ing. Just like Anna's favorite book.

RIGHT GUY, WRONG WORD was an adorable love story. Sweet. Funny. Booky. A bit heartbreaking. Second-Chancy. READ IT!

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor.

With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business.

After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing.

When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
