Release Blast: The Right Kind of Guy by Kerri-Leigh Grady (Review + Giveaway)


Romance novelist Kelsey Spencer doesn’t believe in love, and she's tired of faking her way through happily ever afters. Determined to change things up, she heads to the Las Vegas Romance Lovers Convention. But somewhere between half-naked cover models and hot Navy SEALs, Kelsey’s plans derail...

Especially once she meets über-fan Jasmine Grant...and Jasmine’s über-hot alphahole brother, Aaron.

Buttoned-up Aaron Grant never thought he’d find himself at a romance convention, but here he is, trying to convince his impulsive sister not to marry a beefcake cover model. His only hope is to enlist the aid of the cynical (and sexy) romance writer his sister worships.

After a sweltering jaunt around Vegas, some strange conference hijinks, and one outrageous proposal, Kelsey and Aaron are left questioning everything they know about romance and love...and if falling in love might just be worth the gamble.

About the Author:

Kerri-Leigh Grady loves to sink into happily-ever-after tales and blow-up-all-the-things tales, especially when her testosterone-loaded house has hit its monthly limit of athletic socks and slapstick. She holds an MFA from Seton Hill University and a BS in computer science, so she’s a kind of half-artsy, half-nerd ball of nervous twitching. She has an unnatural love of dark humor, gadgets, chickpeas, BJJ, terrible acrylic landscapes, half-assed jewelry, and planners (Hobonichi and TN, natch). When the zombie apocalypse happens, she’s likely to be patient zero. If you see her bite someone, grab your water and head for your bunker.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

The Right Kind of Guy was another wonderful addition to the What Happens in Vegas series! The story was a little ridiculous at times, but that is what I loved the most about it. It was a fun, lighthearted romance that made my weekend so much brighter, so I loved it. But with that said the characters could be a little infuriating at times, but that lead to a lot of humorous moments, so it didn't annoy me as much as it usually would. Getting back to the characters, Kelsey was an interesting character to follow and while I don't mind characters not believing in love in the beginning, I wish her reason for it was more compelling because in my opinion it was kind of a weak reason. As for Aaron, I really liked that he was the overbearing, overprotective brother type at the beginning because it made watching him completely get schooled by his sister all the more hilarious. And talking about Jasmine, she was my favorite character in this whole book, which is really saying something because I really thought she was nuts for like 75% of the book. But in the end she ended up being the smartest person in this book with how she manipulated both Kelsey and Aaron. Along with some really good characters the love story was fantastic. As I stated already both Kelsey and Aaron weren't the biggest believers in that HEAs happened in real life, so watching them fall in love as they ran around Vegas together trying to rein in Jas was extra satisfying. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I'm hoping to read some more by this author in the future.
