Review: Wrong to Need You

Wrong to Need You: Forbidden Hearts - Alisha Rai

This sequel to Hate to Want You is a wonderful, exhilarating read about a woman struggling to get by reconnecting with a childhood friend who skipped town a decade ago.

 

I adored this novel. I loved the heroine's at odds, but still involved in family relationships. I loved the hero's quiet competence and patience. It also doesn't hurt that she's a cocktail nerd who likes sex or that, while baby sitting, he explains Japanese internment camps in America to her kid. Or that these were my favorite two characters from the previous book.

 

Excellent, satisfying.

 

The only downside is that I'm not interested in either of the leads for book 3.
