Review: Wrong Place, Right Time (The Bourbon Street Boys #2) by Elle Casey

Book Blurb:

Jenny’s single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny’s looking for adventure or romance—she’s the type of woman who believes in playing it safe.

When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys—a New Orleans private security firm—she knows she should stay away. They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm’s way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer…Problem is, there’s a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won’t quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.

Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she’s always done—play it safe and wait for the right time?

My Review:

I really enjoyed this entertaining read by Elle Casey.  I have not read the first book in this series, but had no problems just jumping into Wrong Place, Right Time and feeling perfectly at home!

I just loved both Jenny and Dev.  Jenny is smart, fun, cautious, and responsible.  It felt like it had been a long time since she'd had any time to be anyone other than a Mom, and this made watching her go out of her comfort zone so heart warming and hopeful!  She has a busy life between kids and work, but little does she know some consulting work for the Bourbon Street Boys has the potential to change everything!  The Bourbon Street Boys are a little mysterious and a lot intriguing!  Jenny finds herself in an unexpected situation, and does what she can to make the best of things.  I liked this about her.  She pushed on, even when she wasn't sure it was the safest thing to do!

From the moment Jenny and Dev met I could feel the sizzle between them!  They intrigued me as individuals and the potential they had together and make me want to keep reading.  I liked the development and pace of their relationship professionally and personally.  It felt right and it felt real.  The dialogue between them is well written, making them a very believable hero and heroine.  I really like how Dev was with Jenny too, and how his view of some things was so different from hers that it really made her think and start to see some things differently.  But will Jenny stay stuck safely in the past or strike out to a future full of promise if some unknown?  I couldn't wait to see!!

With a little suspense to keep the edge on, lots of heat, heart and great secondary characters, Wrong Place, Right Time was a book I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend to any romance reader who wants laughter and love with powerful characters.

5/5 stars
