Review: Finding the Right Girl by Violet Duke


From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author who brought you the Nice Girl to Love trilogy, comes a Nice GUY to Love spin-off…

Brian Sullivan has been in love twice in his lifetime.  He lost his first love to early-onset Huntington’s, and he lost the other more recently…to his brother.  And somehow, his heart has managed to heal itself after both.  Amazingly, without therapy.  That doesn’t mean he hasn’t gotten more wary along the way, however.  In fact, he’s been thinking lately that maybe his brother’s now retired nothing-but-flings rule isn’t such a bad idea.  Unfortunately, being the nice guy poster boy and all, Brian isn’t exactly versed in the fine art of flings.  So he looks to the outrageously ‘unique,’ provokingly button-pushing Tessa Daniels for a crash course.

There’s absolutely no way he’s falling in love with this one…right?

Tessa has no idea what she was thinking telling Brian that she was some sort of fling expert.  She’s never been flung before and she sure as heck doesn’t know where or how to begin flinging a guy like Brian.  It was a temporary lapse in sanity, really—no doubt because of the can’t-help-but-fall-for-him brain fuzz that hits her whenever he’s around.  Not only does the man have her being more herself than she’s ever been in her life, but he’s the only person she knows who seems to have as many demons and skeletons in the closet as she does.  What’s more, he’s got her thinking of the one thing she stopped letting herself even hope for years ago.

A happily ever after.

Author Bio

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Violet Duke is a former professor of English Education who is ecstatic to now be on the other side of the page writing wickedly fun contemporary romance novels. When she's not arguing with her story characters or feeding her book-a-day reading addiction, she enjoys tackling reno projects with her power tools while trying pretty much anything without reading the directions first and cooking 'special edition' dishes that laugh in the face of recipes. Violet lives in Hawai'i with her two cute kids and similarly adorable husband. 


 Review By Brenda's Book Beat

Finding the Right Girl by Violet Duke
This book is a good book that covers the issue of Huntington's disease making it a close to the heart issue for anyone that reads it.  I enjoyed the way the love story weaves in and out of what i consider the main issue learning about early onset Huntington's. 

Brian lost his wife to Huntington's, and now his daughter thinks she wants to find out if she has the gene. He thinks she is too young.  Enter Tessa, a lady that works at the care house who is giving her more information than Brian thinks she needs. 

Tessa isnt into relationships, flings only, no love affairs.  Brian just decided that flings are the way to go, after his brother steals the second love of his life.  The twists and turns in the friendship that Brian and Tessa develop keep you turning pages in this very emotional book.
