It's Not Easy Being Right...

Vanessa Campbell is a CPA by day and a perfectionist by night. She's fit, successful...and decidedly lonely. She can't stop thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron. He's just like her: smart, attractive, and usually right—except when dealing with her.

...But Someone's Got To Do It.

Cameron McCauley likes Vanessa a little too well. She's a blond goddess with a razor-sharp tongue. She hates to be wrong, just like him. But she can hold a grudge and is stubborn to a fault—also like him.

A past misunderstanding has them rubbing each other the wrong way. Cam is dying to shake Vanessa up—get her to let loose. But if he succeeds, can his heart handle it?

My Opinion

I read this series in order, which definitely helps as I knew the other characters and had some sense of what was going on. Plus, I knew who all the side characters were. There may be some spoilers in this review for the first two books.

Cam’s dad and brothers are all blue collar workers, Cam being the exception. Instead of working with his hands he is much more of a mathematics kinda guy. Sometimes this puts him at odds with his pop and the boys and other times they go right to him for help. I do hate how it puts him at odds with his daddy more often than not. At times I felt that Cam was a little bit too sensitive.

Vanessa lives next door to Cam’s widowed brother and nephew. Vanessa is the tough one outta of the group of girls living in his parent’s old home (his childhood home). She can kinda be a witch and she most definitely has a resting face. I liked it when she was wrong since she is almost always right. She has a corporate job, a planner and a plan. Her plan does not include Cam or a serious relationship. Too bad for her, his plans do include her and a happily ever after.

There are a lot of subplots going on here with Del and Mike then Cam’s parents. I think that took away from Cam and Vanessa’s story a bit. I also think that they may both be a little too uppity to actually workout, maybe even a little too much alike.

My Rating 3 stars out of 5
