Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison 5★♥
I preordered this book because the title and the premise sounded fun. I enjoyed reading this and think that it’s one I’d reread again. The storyline of Quinn finding out from the best man/ brother that her fiancé (Burke Morrison) had cheated on her. And it’s still unclear if she had a short affair with Frank (Burke’s brother) for revenge or a drunken decision. Fast forward 10 years, in which Quinn has to confront her pent up emotion about Burke’s lies. I liked how there was some flashbacks. It helped me better understand what Burke and Frank meant to Quinn and why she was still holding onto past love and dreams. I really got into this story. Just felt there was a little bit too much wording and not enough dialogue because a couple of times I’d forget that Quinn was having a conversation with others.
The character development was strong. I could relate to Quinn Barton’s habit of wanting life to stay as they are. And I liked her good friend, Glenn Ryland and that he wasn’t made to be a stereotypical gay man. And their friendship felt genuine. I think Burke was just ok. He wasn’t not likeable but I just didn’t care for about him. I really liked Frank though. I was cheering for him throughout.
I also was thinking how this was a bit like the Sabrina movie. And ironically Audrey Hepburn was mentioned many times (along with some other actors).
