About this ebook

Two young do-gooders working to change the world find friendship and maybe more in a cutthroat business, but when the stakes are higher than they ever imagined, will a betrayal bring them together—or ruin everything?


Kellan “Kell” Luview is a new man. He left his tourist-trap small town and his dad’s business behind in rural Maine for a position at an environmental policy think tank in Washington, D.C. More comfortable climbing trees than talking about them, he’s determined to stretch his wings as he builds a new life with an ambitious girlfriend and smart friends who are just as dedicated as he is.


Despite his love for his work and the excitement of D.C., he feels pulled in too many directions when his girlfriend Alissa starts acting weird, his best friend Rachel needs an embarrassing, public rescue, and his mom hints that things are not going well at home in Luview–“Love You”–Maine, where every day is Valentine’s Day.


As a shocking betrayal shakes the very foundation of everything he believes in, Kell must decide who to trust, who to challenge, who needs him most—and figure out fast whether Rachel’s warnings about his girlfriend are credible.


Or yet another tactical maneuver in a city founded on them.


Unraveling the mystery of who to believe pits Kell against Rachel in a battle where the truth is uncertain and hearts are just collateral damage as ambition rules over feelings.


But Kell’s had enough.


More than enough.


Time to decide what kind of man he is—and who to trust.

Love You Wrong is a quick read that basically gives us the backstory for Kell and Rachel before they meet again in Love You Right. These two are the best of friends and one of them lets someone petty come between them. Rachel and Kell are interesting characters right from the start, and I love that even surrounded by cutthroat political ladder climbers, they still have honor and integrity. If any pair of friends deserves a second chance at something more, it's this pair, and they're a great way to kick off a new series.

Love You Wrong is a very quick contemporary romance by Julia Kent. This is a very quick read, a prequel to the Love You, Maine Series. Kell and Rachel's story started out funny, moved on to a bit boring, then over-the-top angsty and ended in a cliffhanger. Not Ms. Kent's finest work.

The prequel to Julia Kent’s newest Love You series and let me just say, this did not help with my impatient anticipation for the first book. We meet Rachel and Kell. The turmoil and miss understanding abound. The evil Ms. Kent, is probably snickering and rubbing her hands together with glee. Can not miss this one and the price can not be beat. Grab it and then wait, like the rest of us. Lol
