Right Kiss Wrong Guy (Offsides #2) by Natalie Decker
Publication Date: January 23, 2018
Publisher: Swoon Romance
You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.
But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.
A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."
Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.
Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed.
Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla's sister.
Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?
Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face. Juliet won't play his game.
Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.
Right Kiss Wrong Guy is my first Natalie Decker novel, and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I was back in high school reading it.
Jared was my favorite character. I related to him the most because I lived a similar existent growing up with my dad. I felt bad for him, but at one point I wanted him to give up or man up. He did have a stupid moment where he needed a whack to the back of the head, but he was genuinely a nice guy. His crush and feelings for Juliet were very sweet.
Juliet… I liked her overall, but she was a little ragey and a little selfish. She had tunnel vision during the month leading up to the dance and couldn’t see outside her situation. It ended up hurting some of her friends and her sister. Her ex was an idiot, but just as she didn’t want people to see her as the nerdy one, she needed to not see all jocks as stupid jerks like him.
I didn’t read the first book in the series, but RKWG can be read as a standalone. I didn’t feel like I was missing any references. I liked how Decker transported us into the classrooms and homes of these characters. I just wish I would have gotten a better idea of what they looked like… Overall, it was fun, quick read.
