Club enforcer and former cage fighter, “Ogre” O’Keefe just met the woman of his dreams.
Unfortunately, Vidalia was drunk off her ass at the time and can’t remember him or his sexy kisses.
Even worse, she’s sworn off men, even handsome ones with sad eyes like Ogre.
He can win her heart if only she’ll give them a chance. Getting creative to woo her, he sets up a scenario where he can play her hero.
Even if his plan works, will Vidalia still swoon for the scarred biker once she learns the truth?
Right Amount of Wrong contains graphic sexual content, violent situations, and harsh language. The book is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.
Bijou Hunter writes the kind of characters who get married in jeans and t-shirts and have their wedding receptions at Zaxby’s (which is cool because let’s face it, Zaxby’s has better chicken than most wedding receptions no matter how fancy the venue). They are far from refined but have real emotions and reactions and don’t mind poking fun at themselves which makes them inordinately interesting. Although not as gritty as Ms. Hunter’s Little Memphis series, Right Amount of Wrong had me smiling throughout almost the entire time I read it.
Due to family history, Vidalia has convinced herself to give up on love and her dreams of a family of her own. Instead, she lives with her brother and his family, sharing a bedroom with her niece and nephew, taking care of them while working the deli counter at the local Walmart. She knows she’s not in a good situation, but doesn’t know how to change it.
Ogre aka Gunnar, is the Club Enforcer for the local Reapers MC. A second-generation Reaper, he was raised surrounded by loving yet rough parents. He’s never really wanted a woman like he wants Vi, nor has he ever had to work for one so when she didn’t even recognize him after a drunken but hot encounter at his club’s bar, he wasn’t quite sure what to do. When she completely shuts him down he decides desperate measures are required. The scheme he comes up with works wonders, but you also know when it backfires, it’s going to do so in a huge way.
Gunnar was so damned Goofy and lovable, I adored him. He may not have deserved forgiveness for his scheming, but I found myself hoping against hope she’d give find it in herself to give it to him. I liked Vi too, despite her doormat tendencies when it came to her family. I say doormat, but it’s more a case of being pragmatic about her situation—she knew her life sucked and she had plans, it was just taking a while to get it all together. In the meantime, I think she knew they took advantage, she just chose to ignore it.
As Vi got to know Gunnar, she also got to see what a loving family really felt like, which was both wonderful and a little sad at the same time. I loved how his Mom, Tawny, took the calm route with Vi, instead of coming on strong and trying to force Vi into a relationship with her son.
Gunner mainly stole the show, but Vi held her own. Although I did miss the grit just a teeny tiny bit, the humor and the characters kept me reading and I’m hoping to see more of them in the future.
