One Line: Some hilarious and steamy scenes, but as addicting as I was hoping for.

About the Book: Eight years ago, former Army sergeant Nathan Schultz let the love of his life disappear without a fight. After watching everyone around him find happiness while he slipped further away, he’s finally ready to fight for Chelsea Callaghan—and he’s not afraid to play dirty.

Chelsea has always followed her conservative family’s rules—with one heartbreaking exception. When she receives an invitation to an old high school friend’s wedding, she knows who’s to blame. Though she goes solely to give Nathan a piece of her mind, he blackmails her into staying the entire week. With him.

There’s no way she’ll bow to Nathan’s will without making him pay. Unfortunately, revenge is a dish best served fully clothed, and they can’t be in the same room without losing theirs. As insatiable, anger-fueled lust shifts into something more, they begin to lose sight of why they can’t be together. But with so many unforgivable wrongs between them, can Nathan and Chelsea ever make things right?

Two Wrongs, One Right would fall into the enjoyable, yet not-addicting category of Brazen books out there. While I will admit, Katee does an excellent job at creating sizzling, yet tasteful sex scenes coupled with witty dialogue, something about the pacing of the plot just always gets to me with her books, like with Chasing Mrs. Right. What I like most about Katee’s writing is she goes out of the norm, just enough to spark your interest, but doesn’t go over the top where it turns into something not everyone can enjoy.

As far as the characters go, I didn’t really feel much for either Chelsea or Nathan. It’s not to say they were boring or terrible characters, it’s just more that I didn’t really care either way what their outcome would be. I think I enjoyed how they were in the moment, as they had some pretty funny and entertaining scenes, as opposed to wondering if they would reconcile and how they get their happily ever after. Nathan was an okay male lead, at times, but there wasn’t much of a spark with him. Chelsea was also just okay.

It also bothered me how long the characters went without addressing their issues, yet after only one weekend, they were able to move past all that so seamlessly. It just didn’t feel real to me. Add that to how easily Chelsea resolves her issues with her dad after stating numerous times how strained their relationship is, it all took away from the believability factor. I felt like it just all came together a little too nicely and a little too quickly, for my taste.

Obviously, there were certainly some hilarious scenes that kept me interested, and a few steamy scenes, which were refreshing and edgy; still, I didn’t feel the awesome connection I usually get with some of my favorite Brazen titles. Regardless, this was still a decent read and I enjoyed seeing a few familiar characters and seeing what they were up to. I still need to read the first book in this series, so I haven’t given up on this author and her books yet. It’s definitely worth a read if you’re looking for a quick, funny, and sexy book.

    I think I would likely feel the same about this as you. I liked the first book in the series, but had many of the feelings you described in this review. I did definitely enjoy it, though.
    Great review, Vi!

      Yea, it just didn’t have enough substance that I like in my romance novels. Oh well.

      It was okay, I still need to read the 1st in this series, bc I heard its the best one, lol.

    This sounds like a fun read !I would definitely have the same issue with the lack of addressing an issue, though. That and lack of communication annoys me most of the time. I haven’t even read a Brazen book though I’m really curious about the line it sounds like it has some great steamy novels! 🙂

      Yea, it’s sort of middle ground when it comes to Brazen books. My fave is ANYTHING by Tessa Bailey (Protecting What’s His, His Risk to Take, Officer Off Limits), so if you want to start a Brazen, I suggest going w/one of those!
