I know that if I want a good rock star romance, Michelle Mankin is the author to write it. So up till now I’d only read her Rock F*ck Club series, but it was really a good one with a lot of girl power and women owning their own sexuality. This book is the third in a series, and I have a feeling if I ever get any time, I’d like to go back and read the others. Especially Rush and Jewel’s story I think!
The Right Wrong had a really good story that I was very invested in the characters. Their back story was really touching, and the way the beginning of the book gave us that story from the two characters as either a kid or a teen really solidified my investment into them and seeing them get their own HEA. But another thing I liked is that even though Sierra had such a major event in her teen years, becoming a mother while in high school, I love that she still had a good family to take care of her and make her life a good one anyway. I know not everyone has a good family, and that having the bad family can definitely lead to drama and intense storylines. However I know that I am lucky in that I have a good supportive family, even if my parents are divorced, and so I do like to read about families that resemble my own when I can. Of course that also made what Sierra had to give to Ben perfect for his own background and needs.
And Ben, while he was totally the rock star manwhore that you’d think, he had good reason. The time of the year when Sierra came onto the tour was a hard one for him, and it made what he was doing understandable. He was sexy though and it was easy to see why Sierra was attracted to him. It started out with some hate between the two, or at least antagonism that led to some definite hot times later on.
I only had a few small issues with the story. The beginning started a little bit weak for me, well, after we got their background that is. The background stories were perfect. And then there were one or two moments during some of the steamy scenes that I cringed at a little, which surprised me since this author usually writes the best of those types of scenes. One other thing is how she didn’t seem to mind or notice that she let her son see how Ben talked to her when they first met. I feel like she would have been a little more upset with him for that, but it wasn’t really brought up in the story.
Overall I really enjoyed it, could barely put it down as I needed to know how things would work out between these two characters. I’m grateful to have had the chance to read it.
