She's done it again! Fantastic book, I loved every minute of it.


Sydney moves to Las Vegas for a new start, running away from a nightmare she is desperately trying to forget. Thinking she is getting the perfect female roommate, she instead walks in to find Damien. A tattooed sex-a-holic with a revolving bedroom door. Damien doesn't do relationships, ever. But that's ok, Syd isn't wanting any type of relationship after what happened to her.

The banter between the two as they start up a friendship

I wanted to read this novel because a story that has "a tattoo artist by day and a musician by night" (and don't forget to total man-whore) is right up my alley :D


So World meet Damien Blue, one hot guy with a revolving bedroom door that might be just a tinny it's bitsy obsessed with sex...and only sex...


Sydney Summers moves to Las Vegas to start her life all over again after she was (view spoiler) A mix-up brings her to Damien's door as his new

3.5 Stars ~~ A great second novel by Kennedy!

A story about a young woman that experiences the very worst possible thing that could happen to her and the sexy tattoo'd man ho that ends up showing her that she can still have "special" in her life.

A warning though.. this book starts out with a very serious assault scene. It's in your face and pretty brutal. Those with triggers to these situations may want to skip the prologue or at least proceed with caution.

Sydney Summers.. she's leaving

I really liked this book! It starts off with a bang. And though it was hard to read it really starts you off having a lot of respect for Sydney. At first I did not like Damien he was such a jerk. He and Sydney (Syd) find themselves roomies by mistake but decide to do it any way. Damien was such a man whore. He would bring skanks home and fuck them and they were both so loud Sydney couldn't sleep some nights EWE!!! He even sleeps with a co-worker of

I really hate DNFing books, especially at 10% like I did with this one. I’ve never DNFed a book this early into reading it… But I just couldn’t stand the flow of the book, the way both characters acted, thought and talked. I’m no prude, but to have every other word be an explicative not only coming out of the characters mouths but also present in their thoughts as well was quite excessive.

There was a lot of contradictions within the first few chapters. Not to mention the prologue which comes

This is a beautiful, heartbreaking, sweet, sexy, and naughty story about two broken people who find friendship and healing from one another. This book is NOT your typical love story and has so many twists and turns that it will have you gripping the edge of your seat wanting to get to the end and find out what is going to happen. This book was also naughty and totally sinful with the delicious Damien.

This is Damien and Sydney's story. Sydney is on the run from an abusive man.

This is Author Kennedy Kelly's second released novel, and I have to say, I LOVED this plot so much more than her debut novel even! I fell in love with Damien Blue - man-whore that he was, he didn't ascribe to being anything different. But his heart, wow! He had a beautiful heart and Syd captured it sooner than even he knew!

Syd's past is a dark and treacherous one, and she does her best to escape it by starting fresh in a new place, but as we know, there is no escaping the demons that left their

I have to say I fell in love with this story early on, it was easy to read and follow and loved it. My emotions were grabbed through the very beginning and I felt so much reading the characters. I read this book in less than 24 hours, because I was so captivated by the story. Sydney has just had a horrible act done to her and she is trying to make a fresh start. She moves to Las Vegas to put things behind her and move on. Sydney gets into town and goes straight to her new apartment and meets

Loved this sweet & twisted story. Damien and Sydney both have their own issues. Damien has his series of one-night stands while Sydney has sworn off men.

Damien and Sydney are going to share an apartment but are not happy about it. With Damien's revolving door Sydney wonders if she will ever get any sleep. Damien wants to know why Sydney is having nightmares and acting weird.

Can they overcome all the odds against them and end up together?

Damien is a man-whore but he grows on you with his

Damien was a hoot!!! But I Love Sydney. She held it together as best she could.This book is on my to be re-read shelf. Thanx for sharing your work.

I love the cover for this book, & the blurb was what made me buy the book. Because SERIOUSLY who doesn't love a bad boy who is in the band & can play the guitar. But then I started reading the book & the more I read it the more I hated both the heroein & the hero.

Damian is the worst hero I have ever read, I mean seriously. He invites girls wherever he goes, pretty much fucks anything with a vagina, & flirts with all of Sydney's work mates. I seriously don't see what Sydney

An absolutely amazing read that will leave you wanting more!

This book sucked me in from the very first page and I just devoured it. I was a little worried when I first picked it up as I was head over heels in love with this authors first book and I was worried that this one wouldn't compare. Well I shouldn't have worried because Kennedy Kelly has knocked it out of the park yet again!!!

I always love a book that has an excellent back story to it and this is one of the best I have read. There was

To me this book had a lot of potential. The characters seem strong and the theme was going well. Damian being that hot rock star persona has a lot going for him. With a revolving door of women? Who needs a realtionship!! There are some things through out this read that screamed to me "new writer". A lot of things were repeated a lot and just seemed un-necessary. Sydney having a traumatic experience has things to work for to bring her life around and feel better about the move. Damian and the ...more

Mrs. Kelly is quickly becoming one of my favorite contemporary authors. This is the second book she has written, and she seems to be developing into an even better writer with each book.

The Right Kind of Love has everything I love in a contemporary-romance; intrigue, suspense, a feisty female lead, a lethario male lead that turns in his player card, s little playing hard to get by the leads, surprise twists, a pregnancy, capped off by a proposal.

The most unlikable main characters I have ever read! Damien was just an asshat, constantly having a revolving door of women in and out of his bedroom, he did this for a little over 50% of the book and then it was like he flipped a switch and now....ALL he wants is Sydney. Then she finds out shes preggers and he is like I want to be the father, nobody needs to know its not mine. Constantly call the baby his and ours, just unbelievable that a man whore all the sudden wants a relationship and then ...more

Sydney and Damien are thrown together because of a mistake, but in the end it was the best mistake of their lives. They start off hating each other, then friendship starts things off slowly but when they finally get together, watch out. The story was well written with enough drama and little twists to keep it interesting. This was the first book I read by Kennedy Kelly but it won't be the last.

Kennedy Kelly has done it again. With her second book The Right Kind Of Love she has made you laugh, made you cry and broken your heart. I loved Sydney, Brecken and Quinn. Just when you think love wins out tragedy strikes. This is a great read. Enjoy!

This was my first time reading something from Kennedy Kelly and let me tell you she didn’t disappoint. I believe I found a new member to my Book Boyfriend list. Yes! Damien Blue has swept me off my reading feet with his man-whore, charming and straight forward ways.

The Right Kind Of Love is hard to find specially after something tragic happens to you. But that is exactly what Sydney Summers finds.

This little gem was quietly released in 2014, however, thank goodness for the re-release in June 2015 as it recently caught my eye and damn if I was not a goner. I was surprised that I fell into step with this novel. It has a trope that I don’t particularly love “hero falls in love with impregnated heroine rape survivor and claims baby as his.” I am all for a knocked up heroines – hey, it tickles my fancy- but when you add to the mix a non-consensual sexual assault and the new, stand up guy

Sydney had something exceptionally traumatic happen in her life and knew she needed to get out of Detroit and move away for a fresh start. With her dad dying a few years back and now her mom just passing away all she had was her best friend Bee and her stepdad. Sydney had picked from a hat and Las Vegas was going to be her new place at starting over and trying to forget what Wes had done to her. What better way than to find a place to live than by going through an online site. She had it all ...more

4.5 "special" stars! ****

I'm usually sceptical about these type of books - where the girl is raped/kidnapped - so I was pleasantly surprised.

Sydney Summers just moved across the country to escape her past and her stepbrother Wes to start over new in Vegas. When she knocks on her new roommate's door, she's surprised to find out that her roomate isn't she but he.

Damien Blue is a tattoo artist/guitarist and a total man-whore. He's got different girl in his bed every night and he's not planning to

I enjoyed this book; the story was easy to relate to and grabbed me from the first page. The story opens with the horrific events that eventually cause Sydney to run and leave her past behind her. She picks up and moves to a new state for a new beginning all on her own. She lands a job very quickly before moving and has found a roommate to share an apartment with. Things seem to be starting off good for Sydney as she enters Las Vegas however that changes when she meets her roommate. Sydney was ...more
