SOMETIMES WRONG IS OH-SO-RIGHT

After a wrenching loss, Ben McDaniels tried to escape his grief by working in dangerous, war-torn places like Africa and the Middle East. Now he’s back in his hometown and face-to-face with Aubrey Wellington, the hot-as-hell woman who is trouble with a capital T. Family and friends insist she’s not the one to ease his pain, but Aubrey sparks an intense desire that gives Ben hope for the future.
Determined to right the wrongs of her past, Aubrey is working hard to make amends. But by far, the toughest challenge to her plan is sexy, brooding Ben …even though he has absolutely no idea what she’s done…

Can this unlikely couple defy the odds and win over the little town of Lucky Harbor?

My Thoughts: 

In this book we follow Ben McDaniels who has recently returned to Lucky Harbor to find his way after the loss of his wife Hannah.  What he didn't count on was falling for Aubrey Wellington.  Aubrey is everything Ben isn't.  She's fierce and determined when it matters.

Aubrey has done a lot wrong in her life and now is trying to make amends to those she has hurt, including Ben.  Some of the people she has hurt have trouble buying that she has changed her wild ways but Aubrey tries.  Aubrey has had a hard upbringing when her parents divorced and her and her sister were divided up like furniture.

I loved reading about these two and where their romance was headed.  Jill Shalvis is a phenomenal story teller.  I also loved how Lucille had the same thing happen to her that Ms. Shalvis has had happened with the grounding of Facebook!  It brought a chuckle to my face.  And I love how Lucille plays matchmaker and when need be she reminds one of the couples what they need to see the whole picture and not a particle picture!
