Hello loves and welcome to my blog tour stop for Right Girl Wrong Timing by Natalie Decker hosted by Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours.
Right Girl Wrong Timing is book 3 in the Offsides series by Natalie Decker.
Publication Date: March 12, 2019
Publisher: Swoon Romance
Genre(s): Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Adaline Frost’s life officially sucks. Now that her BFF has found her true love, Addy is constantly stuck being the third wheel. On top of that, she hasn’t started her junior project yet, so her advisor pairs her up with what could only be described as the “Reject Breakfast Club.” Instead of the weirdo and the troublemaker, Addy is forced to work with two stoners, a popular girl, and her crush, Austin Reed, the jock who broke her heart.
Austin Reed is sick of being labeled “dumb jock.” If he doesn’t get an A on this project, he can kiss his future goodbye. Austin thought he’d gotten lucky being partners with the very nerdy Adaline Frost, but boy was he wrong. Addy jumps down his throat about his being late and calls him names like “manwhore” on the daily. She has no idea Austin works before and after school in order to help his mom with the bills. Yeah, he’s made mistakes and has had lots of girlfriends, but he doesn’t need Adaline Frost to remind him of it every time he sees her.
Can Austin and Addy ever be a thing?
Entertaining enough to hold my interest
It’s been a while since I read the second book in the Offsides Series, so it took a while to remember some details about the other characters. But it’s no big deal. It didn’t really affect my reading experience cause these books can be read as a standalone. I actually haven’t even read the first book and I never really felt like I was missing important details or anything.
Like Right Kiss Wrong Guy, Right Girl Wrong Timing by Natalie Decker was a fun and entertaining story. The writing style was easy to read and engaging. The plot was fast-paced and amusing and gave me one crazy emotional whiplash. I liked the chemistry between Austin and Adaline, but sometimes I just wanted to shake them. The hot and cold and all the back and forth made me feel quite exasperated. I liked the push and pull and it was fun, but there were times that I just didn’t quite understand the emotional outbursts. Austin and Adaline just kept making assumptions about each other and getting into arguments. It was annoying and so ridiculously chaotic that I found it amusing. The ending felt a bit rushed, but I thought what Austin did for Adaline was super adorable and romantic. There were defintely some swoons and I was quite satisfied with how everything turned out.
The characters were interesting. Even if I was frustrated with them, I thought they were quite realistic and acted their age. Austin and Adaline seemed whiney at times, but they just reacted and behaved like most angsty teenagers would. I can’t really fault them for that. Jared and Tyler were great friends to Austin and I liked that they were always there for him. Really great cast that you may not always like, but they’re pretty entertaining and charming in their own ways.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. There was bickering, drama, misunderstanding, ridiculous teenage angst, amazing friendships, delicious kisses, and swoony moments that managed to hold my interest until the very end. It wasn’t spectacular or anything, but it was an entertaining and fun story that made me laugh and drove me crazy… in a good way.
I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher and Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Natalie Decker is the Author of Rival Love. She loves oceans, sunsets, sand between her toes, and carefree days. Her imagination is always going, which some find odd. But she believes in seeing the world in a different light at all times. Her first passion for writing started at age twelve when she had to write a poem for English class. However, seventh grade wasn’t her favorite time and books were her source of comfort. She took all college prep classes in High school, and attended the University of Akron. Although she studied Mathematics she never lost her passion for writing or her comfort in books. She’s a mean cook in the kitchen, loves her family and friends and her awesome dog infinity times infinity. If she’s not writing, reading, traveling, hanging out with her family and friends, then she’s off having an adventure. Because Natalie believes in a saying: Your life is your own journey, so make it amazing!
