Lane Bishop is a hardworking, intelligent, young woman. With her recent move to Chapel Hill, she is determined to leave behind the drama and effort of keeping up with the dating scene. Even so, Lane somehow manages to get dragged out by a gaggle of girls to go watch boys play soccer. Just watching is not Lane’s forte, so she joins in the fun and leads her team to victory.

I loved this book! I loved it SO much that I finished it in less than 24 hours, because yes, it's that good! The Hamilton brothers (all four of them) were so well written, it was impossible not to fall in love with them. I loved their texts back and forth, and I loved how each brother was so unique. Lane is everything I love about a heroine: confident, fun, witty, likable, smart. And truth be told, I'm a sucker for love triangles! (Note: the ending is well done and people who fear love triangles ...more

This is a fun story that took me right back to my days in the YSA (young single adults) group at church. Lane's interactions with Jamie and Simon are entertaining and brought the feelings of anticipation and uncertainty associated with dating. The dynamics of Lane's relationships get more complicated as the plot progresses, and a well-rounded secondary cast help propel her towards the climax where secrets are revealed and she has some choices to make. Recommend to fans of clean contemporary roma ...more

Loved this one.

content: clean, the characters are LDS (mormon) but other than talking about where they served missions and talk of attending church at a singles ward there is nothing else mentioned and no "preaching"

I made it 3/4 through before I just had to stop. Which is sad because I totally loved the first third or so. This is a great setup with Lane and Jamie being a really good surface match and the brother, Simon, being a much more subtle (but complete) one. That dynamic had the kernel of a good story in it but it dragged on. way. too. long. The problem is that the reader knows that every single sign that Lane gets about Jamie's "hidden depths" come from Simon's experience and observations. And that ...more

This was a fun and invigorating story about YSA(Young single adults) and navigating the dating scene as well as trying to survive in the world by securing a job and making a living doing what you love.

Lane loves soccer, playing for fun, competitively, you name it. She doesn't back down from a challenge and enjoys life to the fullest. She is a bi-racial young woman and has a zest for life and her religion. Everything she does, she does well and to the best of her ability. When she moves back clos

Sometimes a book just squishes my heart and resonates with my soul and that's exactly how this one is. I spent a fair amount of time in a YSA ward (LDS) and this really brought back some long forgotten feelings.

Lane is starting a new job and is back in North Carolina. She's bi-racial and I love how that aspect is touched on, because although we live in a more progressive society, there are still some prejudices floating around and it's vaguely apparent in this book. Lane isn't afraid of competi

Shelves: my-books
I'm so excited for this book! I loved exploring the relationships between brothers, the loyalty and dedication of families, and the complications that falling in love can bring. Lane is a character I loved to write--strong, independent, but tender when it matters. (Also, her grandma? She's the everlovin best.)
Aimee (Getting Your Read On)
This book was so fun. My smile was out in full force with this one. The scenes played out so naturally and I could easily visualize what was happening. It was like the perfect chick flick movie playing out in my head. See? Fun!

Yes, the plot is a bit predictable but the unknown is how everything is going to work out in the end when two brothers love the same girl. That's just a mess waiting to happen because these brothers are close. They have a fantastic family dynamic that includes loyalty and

Jenny Proctor is the master of a well-written romance. This book had some humor too and that was a great addition to the story. Each page brought a smile to my face. Jenny is such a great writer. Lane is fantastic character. She is smart, spunky, successful, funny and she loves a food. I loved how different she was, and I especially loved the North Carolina setting. I thought it was so fun how she met Jamie and his brothers. Lane is not afraid to get what she wants, that scene where they all mee ...more

I absolutely loved this book!! Wrong for You is a sweet, fun romance that has fantastic writing.

Lane Bishop falls quickly for one of the very eligible, very chased-after Hamilton brothers. But it isn't long before she wonders if she's fallen for the wrong one. I loved Lane and her spunk, Jamie and his competitiveness, and Simon's consistency. I was hooked from the very beginning--when Lane challenges the boys in a soccer match. One of my favorite meet cutes to date! It had me smiling through th

I ADORED this book! So much FUN!
You will cheer for Lane from the very beginning as she works her way onto the soccer field--such a fun scene!!! Then your heart will be taken away as you travel with her along these wonderful pages. And I can't wait for you to read the phone texts sent between the bothers--
What great writing!!! Definitely pick up a copy of this book!!!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read and review"Wrong for You." What a wonderful romance. I love it when authors write strong female characters who exist in their own lives independent of a man. And Lane certainly fits that bill. An outgoing soccer player who runs event planning at a local inn and has a strong relationship with her family... she was just such a treat to read.

And equally enjoyable wasthe way the two love interests were crafted. They were both presented

This was the first book that I've ever read by Jenny Proctor and I was so impressed that I immediately bought another one to read next, which I will tell you about! I loved the witty voice of Lane and her relationship with her Grandma in this book. The scene where we first meet the Hamilton brothers is all kinds of fun and had me immediately invested in the story. This book is fun, light, clean, and humorous, yet it has depth at the same time--a hard feat to pull off in a rom com. I admired Lane ...more

Rating: 3.5 Stars

This was such a charming romance! Some of the things I thought were wonderful:

*Lane was pretty awesome. She was a black-puerto-rican-southern-morman, and I have not read any other books with a heroine who fits that description. She was also family orientated, a great friend, a hard worker, very bright, very strong, competitive, and she read books! She is definitely someone I would like to be friends with, and that made me totally care what happened to her.

*I loved the Hamilton

I am new reader to Proctor and I am impressed! Honestly she swept me out of my world and into Lane's immediately. And while I am not a soccer fan, I loved Lane's passion for the game and her skills she used against the Hamilton brothers. The story flowed easily and I could picture Chapel Hill in North Carolina and the Winding Way Inn with Lane hard at work at her desk. And two very handsome Hamilton boys making occasional appearances there! The whole story of Lane trying to figure out if she and ...more

This was a wonderful, fun read. I loved the interactions between the brothers, how they met, and how Lane fell. It was just an all around great read for me. I tend to devour books, and this one, I had to go back, reread, and savor the end. It was just a lovely read.

I've literally just finished this book, and have actual tears pouring down my face, and I'm filled with all the tingly that the final few pages just gave me... well and the last page - OK, that was pretty awesome way to end a book!

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel as I progressed through this story. One girl, two brothers. I'm always a bit skeptical about this type of plot. However, I can solidly say that this one was done with sensitivity and class.

This contemporary clean romance has a subtle love triangle that has three amazing characters in it. I loved each of them, which made it hard to know who to cheer for—I just cheered for all three. Lane Bishop moves to her grandmother’s hometown. When she jumps into a pick-up game of soccer and meets three brothers, she is attracted to the oldest brother, Simon. But when she learns he is unavailable because he has a long-distance girlfriend already, she goes after his younger brother, Jamie. Jamie ...more

It's about a girl named Lane who moves back to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to live with her grandmother and begin working at an inn that she's loved since she was a little girl.

She decides to join in the game, beats the brothers, and grabs the attention of two of the "untouchables."

Fun, quick read I couldn't put down. Took me back to my YSA days (young single adult)...which was fun! No spoiler but I REALLY liked one of the brothers. Well they're all great but one stands out a little more hehe. Clean romance with very likeable characters that were well written! Highly recommended

Jenny is one of my favorite romance writers, and is hands-down my favorite writer of LDS romance. The characters in this story are nuanced and the plot moved along in a way that never felt boring or contrived. I’ve been reading her books from the beginning, and I can’t wait to see what she does next! Jenny, you just keep getting better. ❤ ...more

I need a category for these simple, quick read, vacation books. Three stars if that is what you are looking for. And if you are a teenage girl. Other than that 2.5.

This is a refreshing addition to the LDS Romance Genre. Lane is a vivacious young woman who has a lot to look forward to professionally. She is smart, athletic, with a great personality. She is a whole package for a lucky young man. In this case, it becomes a choice between two brothers.

From the beginning you learn through playing soccer and text between the brothers just how much they mean to each other. Relationships are tough enough, but when you have brothers interested in the same girl, it

I'm always on the lookout for new books by my favorite authors and Jenny Proctor is one of them. I have loved each and every one of her books! She writes in such an amazing and engaging way! This book is no exception to that, I didn't want to put it down!

I really loved Lane. I love the fact that she's so competitive in pretty much everything she does. But at the same time, she's willing to slow down and back off when she needs to, I really loved a scene in this book where she and the rest of th

This book was so cute. I thought I'd dislike it because, look, the whole premise is basically a big love triangle, which is my least favorite romance trope. But it was adorable. Like, I had to go sit in my room for a few minutes when I was done so my family wouldn't ask my why I had a ridiculous grin pasted on my face.

So even though I don't like love triangles, this one worked magnificently. (Only the second one that's ever actually worked for me.) Even from the beginning of the book, there's hi

When Lane is roped into going to a soccer game with a gang of girls from her new town, she is both weary and intrigued. Upon arriving at the soccer field, her new-found friends point out the "Untouchables".

The "Untouchables" are the four handsome brothers that every girl seems to go gaga over. How did they get this nickname? Well, Simon Hamilton is in a long distance, serious relationsh
