One Wrong Choice (Cruel & Beautiful #3)
Isn’t it every woman’s dream to marry the perfect guy?
My family thinks so.
They also believe they know exactly what's best for me—and for them.
For a long time, it was what I thought I wanted, too.
Then I met Brandon Connelly, a ruggedly handsome guy with inked-up skin, who turns my chaste dreams into lustful fantasies.

"I've allowed myself to fall in love with the one woman in the world I can't have."
Jenna Rhodes is engaged and about to be married to Kenneth, the Senator's son, when she meets Brandon Connelly, a car mechanic with colourful tattoos on his arms. In the meanwhile they get to know each other, becoming friends, but this is something that turns into a struggle, for both of them. They will both face difficult situations that will bring them closer, but also pull them apart.
I struggled with this book. A lot. And it has taken me a while to get to the review, as I really wasn't sure what I wanted to say about it.
The pacing of this one was all over the place. I was never quite sure how long it had been, where the action had let off or how long it had been. The timeline was also off, years had passed, but their ages had stayed the same, no one seemed to age, time passed for one character, but not for the other.
The su ...more
What happens when you're about to marry the "perfect" man, but your thoughts are on the tattooed sexy-as-sin hunk-of-a-man who has taken your breath away? Mind you, you're not even in love with the man you're about to walk down the aisle for. What would you do? Marry the sure-thing? Or, listen to your heart and jump?
These are some of the questions Jenna faces. Kenneth, Jenna's fiancé is everything she thought she wanted: tall, dark, handsome and ric ...more
I was honestly up and down with One wrong choice all my emotions were pulled at one point or another in the plot.
Anger,frustration,sadness,joy,humor One wrong choice is definitely a read that gives you all the feels.
Great characters but I did sway a lot with Jenna and got frustrated.
A negative for me was the prologue it's like a huge spoiler of what is to come and for me it spoilt the story, I new exactly where the story was going I knew what was or wasn't ...more
~ 4 Not the Wrong Choice Stars ~
What lengths would you be willing to go to to help your family??
That’s the question that is raised and answered in One Wrong Choice.
So I have to be honest and say I really had a love/hate relationship with this book. One Wrong Choice is the third book in Terri E Laine and A.M. Hargrove’s Cruel and Beautiful Series. I have all the books in this series and I am sad to say this one wasn’t my favorite. N ...more
This book can be read as a stand alone but I suggest reading the first two books in the "Cruel and Beautiful" series first. You get so much more back story and this just beautiful heart breaking and loving flow of a story of family & friends.
This book revolves around heart ache, trust and loyalty. This is a love story about Jenna and Brandon.
I think Jenna is a very strong woman but with that being said she is a little ignorant. I understood her dating ...more
I gave this book 4.5 stars!
This book had me hooked from the beginning, I simply devour it in just a couple of hours and when I finally made it to the end I was wanting some much more of Brandon and Jenna. With that being said, at times in this book I wanted to throw my kindle because the way Jenna done Brandon and other times I was rooting for Jenna to rip her fiance a new one. I was very impressed with how A.M. wrote this book, many times in this book she cou ...more

Either combining their talent for story telling together or separates, they give me one heck of a ride, that's for sure. While reading one of their stories, I always get to feel many emotions. This 4 star story gave me intense feelings.
