Review for Wrong Place Right Time by Elle Casey

Title: Wrong Place Right Time
Series: The Bourbon Street Boys, Book 2
Author: Elle Casey
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Published Date: May 19, 2016
Genre: Romance/Chick-Lit
Page Count:330


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?


I typically love these types of books. Strong alpha males, working for a security firm, and falling for the damsel in distress. I wasn't crazy about this book. I felt that the romance wasn't there. There seemed to be some chemistry between Jenny and Dev but they never made a real connection until very late in the book. The storyline was not as interesting as I had hoped it would be. The plot was a little boring. There was some action but because it lacked the romance that I had hoped for, that took away from the book. 

Another part I didn't like was Dev's insistence that Jenny workout. If Jenny is comfortable in her body, she shouldn't be forced to change it. I get that Dev is the personal trainer for the Bourbon Street Boys but every time he sees Jenny he shouldn't bring up her exercising. It's over kill. 

There were a few funny parts, like when Dev broke the bed when he and Jenny attempted to have sex. It was funny because it just added to the catastrophe that was Jenny's love life. I also liked the interaction between Dev, Jenny and their kids. I wish that there were more scenes with them. 

Overall the book was okay but it's not a series I'll continue to read. 

3 out of 5 Stars
