Right Wrong Guy by Lia Riley (Review)

OH MY GOODNESS! Talk about a ÜBER CUTE READ! I absolutely LOVED Right Wrong Guy by Lia Riley. First off, you don't have to worry if you haven't read the first book yet, because Right Wrong Guy focuses on Edie and Archer.

Why I love this story? Honestly it has a lot of fun elements, and here we go: 1) Runaway bride 2) Sleazy ex-fiancee 3) Manwhore hero. Seriously, that fun it in itself. 4) Heiress 5) Small Town charm. So many ways you can take small town. That's a lot of elements packed into this read. Each of those elements make this story a fantastic read.

At the beginning of the story, we find our manwhore of a hero, Archer Kane, with two women and he can't remember what the heck happen. Gotta love a manwhore (not really, but they make great heroes in books). Basically, the man is running for his life. While Eden Bankcroft-Kew (which is a mouthful to say) is having second thoughts of marrying her sleazy of a fiancee when she over hears him calling another person baby. Yeah, for ease dropping. She needs to make her mistake, before the smooth talking sleaze tries to talk her out of running. Of course, they meet by chance. Luck must be on Eden side, because Archer is from the area her cousin is living. YAY! I love their chance meeting, because this is the point wants to change. Later in the story he tells Edie:
"All I want to do is be the kind of guy who is worthy of someone like you."
You have my permission to melt into a puddle of goo. Love Archer, because he wants to be the hero Edie needs. It's not easy for him, because living in a small town doesn't offer that luxury.

I love small town stories, because you can go in so many directions. However, they embraced Edie, but she did find a little conflict with one Marigold. Fortunately, they were able to work the difference, and I hope Marigold will get a story. Just wishful thinking.

What really won me over with this story was this particular quote at the beginning of the story:
First off, life was no box of chocolates. Boxes of chocolates came with helpful identification charts that allowed you to choose the chocolate-covered cherries and ignore the nougat. 
Seriously, I have always hated that line from Forrest Gump. I instantly fell in love with Edie with that one quote. Honestly, Right Wrong Guy has everything that will make you fall in love with Edie and Archer and leave you with feel good feeling.
