Finding The Right Girl by Violet Duke REVIEW


From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes A Nice GUY to Love spin-off...

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington's, and he lost the other more his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn't mean Brian hasn't gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he's been thinking lately that maybe his brother's now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn't such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously 'unique,' provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.

There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really--no doubt because of the can't-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he's around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she's ever been in her life, but he's the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What's more, he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.

My views:
 I received an ARC for an honest review.

 I had read the Nice Guy To Love trilogy and LOVED them all so I was eager to read this book and to see Brian  get his HEA. You would not believe how EXCITED I was to finally get this book!

I was Team Connor in the first three books and I was pleased that the spin off gave us a little insight into Connor and Abby's lives now. I loved Brian in this book, he definitely has a whole lot more of SEXY ALPHA MALE going on this time and had some DELICIOUSLY HOT  moments with Tessa.

Tessa's character is just BEAUTIFUL and SWEET. She has been through so much, losing both her sister and her father to Huntington's and yet she is this strong capable women that just deals with whatever life throws at her. I loved that she is QUIRKY, a bit DIFFERENT and her positive outlook on life.

There are parts in this story that really SURPRISED me, usually when I read a book I can guess whats going to happen but the TWIST that the author wrote into this story is a HUM-DINGER. I genuinely didn't see it coming! This book definitely provoked a whole lot of emotions in me.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for sure. I will definitely be looking out for titles from this author in the future.

Favorite quotes:

".......In a heartbeat", she whispered without hesitation. "Til your very last heartbeat"

".......The woman rattled him, infected him with that talking out of his ass virus he hadn’t had since he was a teen."

"........A seriously pained groan escaped him then. "To preserve my sanity—and your panties—don’t use the word wet in any more sentences tonight."

About the Author:

 A former professor of English Education at the University of Hawai'i, Violet does in fact miss teaching terribly but is ecstatic to now be on the other side of the page writing wickedly fun contemporary romance novels. When she's not catering to the whims of her story characters or feeding her book-a-day reading addiction, she enjoys tackling reno projects with her power tools while trying pretty much anything without reading the directions first and cooking 'special edition' dishes that laugh in the face of recipes. Violet lives in Hawai'i with her two cute kids and similarly adorable husband.
