Too Wrong To Be Right

Kat Kowalski’s boyfriend just dumped her (along with his pet hedgehog), proving that Kat’s choice of men continues to be faulty. Every boyfriend of Kat’s has been a jerk, and she’s had enough. She makes a list of qualities she’s looking for and plans to search, exclusively, for potential candidates that match. But then she meets Mick O’Sullivan. Mick is confident, with dark hair and twinkling eyes, and a smirk that shouldn’t turn Kat on, but definitely does. He’s exactly who she should run from, while Mick’s brother, Joe, embodies every quality on her checklist. Mick is immediately attracted to Kat, but she needs a friend more than a romance. So he will be the best friend he can be, even if that means setting her up with his brother. The protagonists in this friends-to-lovers romantic comedy are very well-developed and three-dimensional. Their low-drama backstories are relatable, giving the characters realistic humility and insecurities that will resonate with readers. Delightful secondary characters and hilarious situations round out the story.
VERDICT This hard-to-put-down book from Johnson (Too Good To Be Real) is recommended for general purchase.
