SynopsisIt's Not Easy Being Right...

Vanessa Campbell is a CPA by day and a perfectionist by night. She's fit, successful...and decidedly lonely. She can't stop thinking about the youngest McCauley brother, Cameron. He's just like her: smart, attractive, and usually right—except when dealing with her.

...But Someone's Got To Do It.

Cameron McCauley likes Vanessa a little too well. She's a blond goddess with a razor-sharp tongue. She hates to be wrong, just like him. But she can hold a grudge and is stubborn to a fault—also like him.

A past misunderstanding has them rubbing each other the wrong way. Cam is dying to shake Vanessa up—get her to let loose. But if he succeeds, can his heart handle it?


My favorite book in this series, thus far!

Brody may be my favorite brother but this was definitely my favorite book. I pegged a Cameron and Vanessa coupling from the first book and am happy to finally see it happen. These two characters were made for each other and probably had the easiest chemistry of the group.

Vanessa is a perfectionist. Not only in her work, but in nearly every facet of her life. She prioritizes cleanliness, timeliness, fitness, and health. The only thing she doesn't put forth as much effort into is her love life. It's practically nonexistent. But there is one man who gets her blood pumping...

Cameron is the baby McCauley. He grew up with three older brothers and despite their influence, Cameron took after their mother in many ways. He is thoughtful, gentle, and caring. And though he works just as hard as his brothers, Cam's field of expertise is in investing, rather than working with his hands. He's more clean-cut than his brothers. And boy does he get teased for it!

Sparks have flown between Cameron and Vanessa in past books, but this one starts off with a bang. Or should I say, a splash? *chuckle* Our couple's growing relationship is fun to watch and their humorous dialogue was highly entertaining. I laughed a lot when reading this book.

But there are a few somber moments, too. Alongside our main couple, we have a broken McCauley marriage seriously in need of a mend. This throws our entire group for a loop when the seemingly perfect parental couple's relationship hits the skids. We also get a glimpse into the last book of the series and who will become Mike's love interest. I am anxious to get to it!

In closing...
A handsome man who knows what he wants and a woman who doesn't play around make for an explosive duo! Five spicy suns!
