Book Review

Rating: 4/5

I really don't tolerate cheating - even how hot the third party is - and especially the one you are cheating on is a good guy. But how did the good guy in All the Wrong Reasons turned out to be an ass in the end? Somehow, the author gave the 'cheating part' a nicely put justification that it was okay, after all, he wasn't really the prince charming.

Luke! OMG! Luke! Talk about someone who is so nice and dependable. I like the fact that he didn't pressure or push Irelyn to do something for his benefit. He took his time, and respected her decision - even though waiting was making him miserable as well. 

I hate the meddling patriarch, especially when he goes down low and resorted to blackmail. No one is given the right to run someone else's life, especially when he or she is capable of running it by his/her own. It was a breather when Irelyn's mom finally - AT LONG LAST - stood up for herself and for the rest of her family. 

Their friends were pretty amazing. Collin, was concerned and did the talk but never really confronted Irelyn -talk about minding your own business. There's Morgan (the moralist) and Bailey (the one who tolerates this whole stuff) – I love the balance and I think Ire has good friends because they really care for her, and was there when she needed them most. 

All the Wrong Reasons teaches us that important to be honest and truthful to someone about what we really feel. Doing anything stupid behind someone’s back is low, especially when you have the inkling that what you are doing is wrong. Spare anyone a heartbreak, and tell the truth before anything else gets out of hand. Confiding to friends is also important, they may not help that much, but at least you get you get some negative air out of your system. One last thing, some people change, and some people don't – that includes their wants.
