In “Love in All the Wrong Places”, Annie tried her hand at online dating, but it brought her nothing but a broken heart. This girl can't seem to catch a break in the dating world! While wondering what went wrong once again, she met an attractive, funny and sincere hip hop dancer in the parking lot at work. But just as Casey expressed interest in taking her out, he had to leave town to tour the country with an up and coming pop star. Annie was willing to wait for him to return, but then she received an apologetic text from Nate, the last guy she met on Craigslist.
Join Annie on her adventures in “All the Right Things” as she makes some of the biggest decisions of her life. While she thoroughly enjoyed the time she spent with Nate and is still attracted to him, he screwed her and then ditched her at the bar without a word. Will Annie accept Nate’s explanation and his heartfelt apology and give him a second chance or will she kick him to the curb? Or will Casey’s charm and determination to show her how a real man should treat a lady win her over? Or will both of these guys be left in the dust when someone from her past reappears?
Let me give you a fair warning – this book can not be read as a standalone. To better understand Annie’s complicated relationships you will have to read the first installment which is Love in All the Wrong Places. Don’t worry, book 1 is a very short read which I thought was enjoyable. It was also unique and distinctive. More than a hundred plus books later, I still remember every detail of Annie’s story. That’s saying something since I have a very bad memory. Ha!
For me, the follow-up was even better than the first. If you’ve read it you know that she had the worst luck when it came to dating and relationships. Her heart had been broken over and over again. In this book, luck was clearly on her side. The men that did her wrong wanted back into her life and while she was way too hasty with her decision then she made a point to think things over this time around. Talk about learning from your mistakes right?
That wasn’t the only amazing element about her in this one. Let’s face it, she was treated horribly by both Gabe and Nate. While most people wouldn’t have given them the time of day to explain their half of the story she did the total opposite and found it in her heart to give them a chance. That says alot about her overall character.
The one important thing that came about her experience with these men was it lead it to her meeting her current love interest – Casey. From the very beginning I thought he was a great guy. He was very caring and patient with Annie. He spent the time getting to know her and helped her through that difficult time without any alternative motives. I liked that he was just as passionate as Annie. I thought their pairing was terrific but it isn’t going to be easy given his career.
A couple of other aspects that I enjoyed about it was the remarkable friendship between the besties. All throughout her ordeal Alex and Katie were there for her every step of the way. I also appreciated how the author described the lifestyle in L.A. Living in a smaller city I found it all fascinating. It gave the series a better feel in general too.
But what I loved most about the book was that it wasn’t entirely focused on the great romance between our couple. The series developed into so much MORE. It isn’t only about following your heart but further more…following your dreams which I found quite inspirational.
Bottom line is … All The Right Things was an outstanding sequel and I am definetely looking forward to seeing what comes next for Annie.
