I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Sterling and Ruthie have more things in common than they realize, even though from the outside it doesnÔÇÖt seem like they do.
Sterling is a decorated war hero.
Ruthie is an ex-con.
Their two worlds shouldÔÇÖve never collided, but fate has a way of turning life in the direction least expected. Now Ruthie has to try to come to terms with the fact that sheÔÇÖs in love with a biker whoÔÇÖs also a decorated Navy SEAL. One who leaves for months at a time with little to no advance warning, taking her heart with him each time he goes.
Sterling has a lot of things to overcome in order to have Ruthie, the biggest being her mind.
She doesnÔÇÖt think sheÔÇÖs good enough.
He thinks sheÔÇÖs perfect.
Now itÔÇÖs up to him to show her just how right he can be.
After having met Ruthie and Sterling in the previous book, Counter to My Intelligence, I couldnÔÇÖt wait to get my hands on this one. Just like with every other Lani book. The expectations were high and Right to My Wrong did not disappoint. It was everything I hoped for.
Having just been released from prison for killing her abusive husband, Ruthie is not experiencing a smooth ride while enjoying her freedom. For everyone, besides her best friend Sawyer, the Dixie Warden MC and their old ladies, sheÔÇÖs an ex-conÔÇöa killerÔÇöand doesnÔÇÖt deserve forgiveness in their eyes. Their animosity makes her life harder than it needs to be, the only bright spot in it is Sawyer, the MC, and especially Sterling. Struggling to make a life for herself and get her nonexistent self-esteem back, she doesnÔÇÖt follow her heart and feelings for Sterling.
As a NAVY Seal and member of the Dixie WardensÔÇÖ MC, Sterling is strong, overprotective, the typical alpha. However, heÔÇÖs also had a horrendous childhood full of abandonment, abuse, and heartbreak. HeÔÇÖs a very complex character that at times made it hard to connect with. The way he grew up juxtapositioned to then finding the love and understanding of his brothersÔÇöhis foster brothers Cormac and Garrison, as well as his MC brothersÔÇögave him somewhat of a split personality. One minute heÔÇÖs this sweet and supportive man, the next heÔÇÖs an asshole. I do understand why he acts that way, as it is very well explained, but he was giving me whiplash for a bit there.
I loved Ruthie; sheÔÇÖs strong, resilient, brave, outspoken, and is able to put up with so much shit itÔÇÖs a miracle is hasnÔÇÖt drowned her yet. SheÔÇÖs one tough cookie, and doesnÔÇÖt take any shit, but she also shows her vulnerable side to Sterling, which makes her a very well-rounded character. They are one great couple with flaws and all. However, living with someone who might need to leave within momentÔÇÖs notice is not easy. Is Ruthie strong enough to withstand the hardships a relationship with Sterling can bring? Can Sterling open up enough to let Ruthie in, to trust her?
I loved this well-written novel by Lani Lynn Vale. Any time I need a steamy romance with tough heroines and hot alphas, I know who to turn to. Right to My Wrong was another stellar novel by Lani I enjoyed immensely. I canÔÇÖt wait for the next one to come out!
