The Wrong Kind of Love by Lexi Ryan Book Summary

From New York Times bestseller Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new romance novel about a runaway bride, a single dad who’s sworn off love, and the kind of family secrets that can threaten to break even the deepest bonds.

You never forget your wedding day. Or the moment your twin sister pukes on your bouquet and confesses she’s pregnant . . . with your fiancé’s baby.

I wanted to get away, to hide until my heart mended. I found myself in a strange town with a mysterious stranger whose talented mouth and hands almost made me forget it was supposed to be my wedding night. 

Afraid to go home to face my broken life, I pretend to be my twin so I can take her job in Jackson Harbor caring for a six-year-old girl. Imagine my surprise when I find out my new boss is my mysterious stranger—Dr. Ethan Jackson. 

I never meant for Ethan to discover my secrets. I never meant for them to matter. But the longer I work with him and his sweet daughter, the harder I fall, and the clearer it becomes that I’m not the only one carrying a secret that could tear us apart.

Get ready to fall for the boys of Jackson Harbor in Lexi Ryan’s sexy new contemporary romance series. These books can all be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them as a series!

This edition contains a bonus epilogue short story titled “If I Could Choose.”

The Wrong Kind of LoveTo be frank, if I had known how heavily the plot of this revolves around depression before I started it, I likely wouldn’t have read it. And I would’ve missed out on a very well done, realistic, and incredibly eloquent take on the reality of a disease I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember. Something about this story had me in silent tears that became more and more cathartic as I pushed through until the end. I usually avoid stories that hit too close to home, for safety and sanity, but I am glad that I read this; if only for the reminder that I am enough. My most sincere thanks and appreciation for the story and your talent at shaping it into something exceptional. Bravo..Score: 5/5

Fast paced, entertaining and heart breakingTHE WRONG KIND OF LOVE is the first instalment in Lexi Ryan’s contemporary, adult THE BOYS OF JACKSON HARBOR erotic, romance series focusing on the Jackson siblings. This is thirty-three year old, single father Dr. Ethan Jackson, and twenty-four year old, nanny Nicole ‘Nic’ Maddox’s story line Told from dual first person perspectives (Nic and Ethan ) THE WRONG KIND OF LOVE follows Nicole Maddox in the wake of the wedding that never happened. Discovering, on the day of her wedding, that her fiancé knocked up her twin sister Veronica, Alabama born and bred Nicole Maddox heads to places unknown only to land in Grand Rapids, Michigan with her sister’s ID, and a job as a nanny to a widowed doctor. But an almost one-night stand finds our heroine face to face with her new employer, a man who isn’t happy about what might have been. What ensues is the tempestuous relationship and building romance between Nic and Ethan, and the potential fall-out as Nic keeps secret her true identity to help a woman who is struggling to move forward with her life. Nicole Maddox is struggling for some direction in life but with the loss of her fiancé, her future and potentially her twin sister, Nicole accepts the position as nanny to a six year old girl, a precious child who is unaware of the animosity between her father and our heroine. Dr. Ethan Jackson struggles with issues of trust including the betrayal by the woman with whom he was once in love. When his mother announces a bucket list vacation, our hero is desperate for child care and accepts his mother’s help in hiring the nanny with whom he will fall in love. The relationship between Nic and Ethan begins as an almost one-night stand but Ethan is quick to judgement when he discovers that his daughter’s new nanny is the woman he found drunk at his brother’s bar. Unable to look beyond the heart break and pain of Nicole’s shattered heart, Ethan places an end date of their personal and professional relationship. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and passionate but I take issue with the use of a certain four-letter word, regardless of the situation or context involved. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Nicole’s sister Veronica; her ex-fiance Marcus; Nic and Veronica’s friend Teagan Chopra : Ethan’s daughter Lily; his sister Shay, and their brothers Jake, Levi, Brayden, Carter, their mother Kathleen Jackson and bartender Ava. Ethan’s brothers are easy going and fun. Ava and Jake’s story is next. THE WRONG KIND OF LOVE is a story of family, friendship, betrayal and love that introduces the Jackson family of Jackson Harbor, Michigan. The premise is fast paced, entertaining and heart breaking; the characters are energetic and charismatic; the romance is seductive and hot..Score: 4/5

A Pleasure to Read This ‘Real’ StoryNicole is escaping the results of inadvertently finding out two big betrayals, on her wedding day re the fiancé that she chooses to walk away from, when she quickly picks up and moves to a different state. Drowning her sorrows for an evening is the first order of things with an encounter with a handsome manner and smile, growing the duo of Nic and Ethan from there and setting the stage for the awkward and reluctant aspects of this romance. Naturally, there is a lot more to the story, that you will find entices you to keep reading, wanting to find out how these characters resolve their challenges and get together in the end. This story has a lot going for it. It held my attention, in large part certainly, because the characters seemed realistically described for the most part, and certainly more complexly portrayed than in the average romance novel. It is easier to relate to them, which makes the story richer. I look forward to reading the series! This one admittedly stands fine on its own, but future glimpses into how each Jackson sibling is faring will be fun too. Finally, I loved that the author made a note at the end of the book about including more than one main character’s experiencing depression. I had not given it thought as being out of the ordinary while reading the book, it was so realistically and well incorporated. But I do also appreciate Lexi Ryan’s influence with her note, on a broad spectrum of readers who will benefit from the learning available in her note, this time about managed (and unmanaged) mental health care, included due to depression playing a significant part in the story, and while also making her characters more multidimensional and real. Consciously incorporating elements in fictional writing that help remove the stigma of mental illness and treatment are normalizing. This is welcome, as it is ‘real life’ portrayal..Score: 5/5
