Wrong for You
by Jenny Proctor
LDS Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 256 Pages
May 1st 2017 by Covenant Communications


Lane Bishop is a hardworking, intelligent, young woman. With her recent move to Chapel Hill, she is determined to leave behind the drama and effort of keeping up with the dating scene. Even so, Lane somehow manages to get dragged out by a gaggle of girls to go watch boys play soccer. Just watching is not Lane’s forte, so she joins in the fun and leads her team to victory.

Rather than feeling intimidated by the vivacious beauty on the opposing team, Jamie Hamilton is intrigued. Risking his “untouchable” dating status, he decides to pursue Lane—with a little help from his older brother Simon. With Simon’s behind-the- scenes assistance, Jamie proves irresistible, even to a disillusioned dater like Lane. But as she gets to know both brothers, Lane can’t help but wonder—beneath the grand gestures and romantic words, is she falling for the wrong guy?

My Review

WRONG FOR YOU is a sweet romance with fun characters, a strong family dynamic, and a protagonist who gets herself in a sticky situation, leaving more than one broken heart. Enjoyable from beginning to end with lots of memorable moments and an adorably sweet ending. Recommended to LDS and sweet romance readers.

I loved a lot about this story, but there are three main things that stand out. The first is that there is this almost nostalgic feel to it because Lane has come back to a place she visited a lot as a child and is working at the hotel where she has quite a few fond memories. Then there is the actual hotel that adds to that feel and her Southern grandma that she spends quite a bit of time with. There is also a seriousness to Lane, more like an honesty of who she is, what she wants, and what she's willing to do.

The family dynamic is also something I loved about this story. You have the Hamilton boys and their family with all the fun and competition they bring. I loved their group texts so much! I also loved the teasing, the camaraderie, and the love that you can just feel exists between them all. There is also Lane's family who I also adored. She has a supportive older brother and I loved their relationship. I also loved her parents and both grandmothers dearly. There was such a feeling of home in this story.

The characters were also awesome! I loved Lane! She felt down-to-earth to me. She didn't try to pretend to be something she's not. I also loved her outlook and how important relationships were to her. Jamie was a fun character with some growing up to do, but Simon was the one that stole the show for me in a lot of ways. Loved him!

I wasn't sure how things would all work out or if I would be okay with the competition between the brothers (awkward!) and that had me a little worried... but, the author pulled it off. I didn't see how it would work, but the one way that it could have did. It made things interesting, heartbreaking, and beautiful in the end.

In the end, was it what I wished for? With two releases from this author that I've loved, she's quickly becoming a favorite. This story was unique, fun, brought out the feels, and romantic. I loved it from the beginning to the end.
