Blurb : Jenny’s single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for.

They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm’s way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer…Problem is, there’s a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won’t quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she’s always done—play it safe and wait for the right time?
Review : I just read “Wrong Place, Right Time” (The Bourbon Street Boys #2) by Elle Casey and can not express properly how surprised I was by this book.. I have to admit, when it appeared on my kindle I had to check back into Goodreads to refresh my Mind what it was about.
I remembered when the Blurb turned up that I was drawn to that really silly name for a security firm and something in the wording of that Blurb was catching my eye – even though I could not quite place my finger on it. Then I saw – that I had rad another book by this author and that it was not in my 4Stars and above list – so for a moment I was second guessing my decision with this book.
And I started browsing through other book blurbs by this author noticing something interesting. It seems that this author is not afraid to try any genre that comes to mind. Actually what might sound strange made me feel better because – who knows – maybe it was just that one book that was not working for me (and no I did not go back to check what I wrote in my last review – I did not want it to influence this review in any way – I will check later)
So coming back to the book itself – I started reading the book and I was so pleasantly surprised that I will really recheck all of the other books by this author. I will definitively read the first one of that series – because I need to know how May ended up with her man.
I also need to see if some of the other books might fit my reading “needs” – but I will pay carful attention to the genres – now knowing that there might be some books that I do not like. Which actually is nice – because it makes reading also feel more real.
And real also being a MAIN word for “wrong place – right time” … I loved the conversations that Jenny was having. No matter if they were “inner dialogues” “loud thoughts” or really her “word vomit” – she felt so real.
She mad me laugh so hard at times – when she was describing herself or certain situations.
It has been such a long time that I can hardly remember laughing so much at so silly yet real observations. If you would ask my opinion I would say the dialogue really came from deep in the authors heart – pure – real and honest.
And than there is Dev he feels like a huge misunderstood gentle giant – he is so warm and fluffy (don’t laugh) (I know I am missing the right word – there is nothing to really describe him correctly).
It’s wrong to say gently giant because I suppose – from some comments in the book – that if I had read the first book I would consider him a hard and tough guy given his occupation alone.
But in this book from the first second that he meets Jenny he is just adorable (kill me)
– yes – he is a seven! foot tall – food killing – hard bodied – drill instructing – TEDDY BEAR … (am I drooling ? – I am used to bad boys so this is something really new to me and I kind of love it )
