Review : Finding The Right Girl by Violet Duke


From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes A Nice GUY to Love spin-off...

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime. He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington's, and he lost the other more his brother. And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both. Amazingly, without therapy. That doesn't mean Brian hasn't gotten more wary along the way, however. In fact, he's been thinking lately that maybe his brother's now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn't such a bad idea. Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, he isn't exactly versed in the fine art of flings. So he looks to the outrageously 'unique,' provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.

There's absolutely no way he's falling in love with this one...right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert. She's never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn't know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian. It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really--no doubt because of the can't-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he's around. Not only does the man have her being more herself than she's ever been in her life, but he's the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does. What's more, he's got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.

Print Length: 212 pages (based on paperback edition, available Nov 2013)

Note: This is a spin-off of the Nice Girl trilogy (Resisting, Falling, and Choosing), however, it is a standalone novel (no cliffhanger) that can be read on its own.

This was another great book by Violet. If you have read the first book Nice Girl to Love you got to meet and fall in love with Brian and were left with wanting more of him. Well now you get your chance! This book is all about Brian trying to find love and move on after loosing his wife. Brian decides that maybe he should start having some flings and experience the dating scene when he meets Tessa. On the surface Tessa is not Brian’s type at all and actually annoys him at first but as he gets to know her better sparks start to fly! This was a wonderful book with a deeper meaning than what I was expecting. It’s a book that will have you questioning what you would do? How much would you risk to have love in your life? I love books like that because they really make me think and try to put myself in that person’s shoes and this book definitely made me do that. I loved all the characters in this book as I did in the first book. Violet has a way of making her characters so real and down to earth that they are people that you would actually like to be friends and hang out with. I enjoyed getting more of Brian and his and Tessa’s story and I hope that they find love and happiness but is Tessa the girl for him? I guess you will just have to read the book to find I will at least let you know that it does not end in with a cliffhanger.

5 stars
