Wrong Turn, Right Direction by Elle Casey

Posted May 25, 2017 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, Series / 0 Comments

Tamika Cleary takes a wrong turn up a one-way street—and straight into Thibault Delacroix’s leg as he steps into the road. But Mika’s in a hurry, and she certainly doesn’t have time for a guy who can’t even look both ways before crossing, even if he does have a cute face, a body to die for, and the darkest, thickest eyelashes she’s ever seen.

Unfortunately for Mika, fate has other ideas. When she’s threatened by her employer, a Russian mafia boss known as “The Thief”, she’s forced to accept Thibault’s help. As the co-owner of the Bourbon Street Boys security firm, he believes he can keep her safe. But Mika has a whole load of trust issues—and the pushier Thibault is about helping, the more stubbornly she tries to resist.

Mika may have taken a wrong turn the day they met, but will she finally let someone steer her in the right direction?

My Rating:  3 stars

In the briefest commentary I can make on Wrong Turn Right Direction, I’m simply going to say that although this was a story that falls into the “good story” category – it simply wasn’t one that I wish to say much about.  I was completely unable to connect or even like the heroine until maybe the last parts of this story… and even then it wasn’t a true connection.  The hero was a bit better in some ways, yet I found his “concerns” more of the bullying type of reactions and that put me off of him as well.  When I cannot connect with either of the main characters in any fashion – well, then obviously the book simply isn’t for me.  I liked the idea of the story and that is what gave it the “good story” rating – I simply wish I could have found a way to like these two characters more.

There is an audience that will love Wrong Turn Right Direction (and no that is not sarcasm) – so I’ll honestly say that you the reader need to make up your own mind on this one.  It will work very well for some readers, not so much for others.  For my reading taste there has to be a spark, something that will let me believe in the passion, the love between two people.  When one refuses to trust, even a little and the other is pushing for things not ready to be given – there is no spark in that..  So, this story is one you have to make your own decision about, after all, a review is only one person’s opinion and it might not reflect your reaction to a book.  I’ve enjoyed Elle Casey’s works before, and I imagine I will again.  This one simply didn’t click for me.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
