Author: Jade Eby

Nothing stays hidden forever.
Kara Pierce has held onto the same dream since she was a little girl: to be the next Katie Couric.
Vince Gage, a budding filmmaker whose I-don't-give-a-shit attitude cancels out his charm, almost ruined it for her once, and now he’s back, threatening to do it again.
When the two of them are paired together for a college competition with a $20,000 prize, the only thing they agree on is winning.
They return to Iowa where Kara grew up to research her grandfather's service in World War II, instead they find themselves in the middle of a family scandal kept quiet for far too long.
As Kara and Vince investigate the scandal deeper, they realize the price of uncovering the truth is so much more than they bargained for.

THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG is a sweet, romantic and has a little bit of mystery in it. It tells the story of Kara, who wants to be a journalist so bad that she would do anything to get it. But when she got paired with the least person she wants to be with, all of that goes downhill.
Vince Gage is not a playboy. Yes, yes I know. You all thought that he was some hot muscle-bulging playboy that skips down the line of girls (there is nothing wrong with those people!), but he isn't. Vince is more like a film geek. He enjoys making documentaries of people out there and people love watching them. Vince is a really nice guy, from what I read, Kara and Vince had a little bit of history when it comes to being partners for projects. The last project that they did together, he messed it all up for Kara and her big dream. But Vince is a really nice person, he's funny, witty, charming and quite cute (I do not want to use that word, but HE IS!!).
Anyway, when they got paired up for the project, Kara has no choice but to agree with Vince to do the project about her recently passed away grandfather who fought in WW2. What she doesn't know, is that she will find a lot more than just an old army uniforms and dust.
It was really great finding about Kara's family and past. In fact, it was a bit surprising really. At first, I though this was just some romantic book that I would enjoy. But the secrets and lies were a great mix to the story, leaving it interesting and I wanted to carry on reading.
Throughout the book, as the secrets come out, the relationship between Kara and Vince blossoms into something more. I would've given this five stars, but then three quarters through the story, I though it was kind of rushed a bit. Especially the romance. If the author would pull out the details and scene a bit more, then I would've totally given this a five.
A great read!
