Right Kiss Wrong Guy is the second book in the Offsides series. This book can be read as a standalone. I haven't read the first novel, however I intend to because I enjoyed this story and I want more.

Juliet has been burnt and has sworn off football players. Her cheating ex has taught her not to kiss the wrong boy. Jared Black is the quarterback and on the strict no list, but there's more to him than meets the eye.

Jared has been in love with Juliet Valentine for as long as he can remember. She'
Right Kiss Wrong Guy was a pretty enjoyable book. Especially for being the second book in the series.

Honestly, it's been a couple of months since I read the first book - but in my opinion these books could be read as standalone instead of reading them in order. In this book you find Juliet and Jared. Juliet has unfortunately sworn off football guys because she's tired of being burned from them. I hear ya girl! However, Jared definitely catches her eye once or twice but she has to stick to her gu

Firstly, I didn’t like the first book in this series, Right Text Wrong Number. Not much at all, really. But I did like the backstory between Juliet and Jared after reading the book. As a result, I was anxious to read their story and hoped to enjoy this book more than the first. I was wrong. This book fell into many similar patterns that I disliked about the first book.

1) Juliet was a straight-up jerk. The way she treated Jared was 100% terrible and loathsome with no substantial basis for majorit

I had already the previous book in the series and I had quite a bit of fun with it. So when I came across this one, I didn't hesitate to pick it up.

The starting of the book was quite good and it kind of left off where Layla's story had ended. So it was a continuation for me. But it can read as a standalone. There aren't that many references to confuse the reader.

I was quite looking forward to Juliet's story. So the change in her character had me blinking in surprise. I so didn't see that coming.

Right Kiss Wrong Guy is the second book in Natalie Decker’s “Offsides” series and the first that I’ve read.

The relationship between nerdy, Juliet, who has just been cheated on by a football player, Mark, and brainy and brawny, Jared, who has loved Juliet from afar since grade school, is push and pull. Juliet can’t even conceive of dating another football player because she’s certain they’re all jerks with the exception of her best friend, Chase, and her twin sister’s boyfriend, Tyler.

3.5 stars rounded down.

Let me start by saying that I really do like this series, I really do. And this book is not bad at all.

I really wanted to give it a 4 star rating, because I loved the first book. But for me, this book felt way to rushed. It started out great, just like #1, but on the last 100 pages or so, it seemed like everything happened "way to easy", just so the book could end. And I were not really that satisfied in the end, because it seemed like Julie just ended up saying "sure why

I'm facing this problem a lot these days, when I like the first book in a series and the other books are just crappy continuation for the book .. ugh I wish if this series was just the first book
So in this book we follow Juliet ( Layla's Twin) and the boy who always crushed on her Jared (Tyler's Friend ) I really didn't get the story .. it was unnecessarily dramatic and it I couldn't enjoy it much, I was so pissed at Adaline and felt sorry for Chase .. things are just messed up in this book and

I remember Jared from Right Text, Wrong Number. I really liked him from amongst Tyler's crowd. Juliet is not as easy-going as her twin sister, Layla. It was positively nerve-wracking and awesome the lengths Jared goes to try and win her over. I loved Jared's chapters. Couldn't get enough of him. Juliet is a great character. It took some time to like her

The offside series could be read as a standalone or in continuation. I really liked seeing Jared standing up for himself and going for what he wants. Juliet on the other hand she is more focussed on herself and more self centered than her twin. The story develops slowly and I love seeing it come together. my only question is what happened with Kimber?

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book.**

When the object of your affection...hates your guts.

Juliet is through with love and everything that goes along with it. That includes Valentine's Day and the stupid Love-Grams that everyone is gushing about at school. When she starts to receive some of her own, she's sure that they are coming from her scumbag cheater of an ex-boyfriend. So she promptly throws the grams right back in his face. Oh, and some in the trash

Layla’s twin sister Juliet had her heart broken by boyfriend Mark at the end of RIGHT TEXT WRONG GUY, and now we get her story. Jared Black has been pining after Juliet for as long as he can remember, but he’s too afraid of rejection to ask her out. The fact that he and Mark are football teammates only makes it worse because Juliet has sworn she’ll never date a football player again. Add to that Jared’s overbearing father and high school football coach, and Jared doesn’t really have much time fo ...more

In this story we meet Juliet Valentine, Layla’s twin sister. Juliet is goal oriented, she is anti-love much to her mother’s chagrin. Her mom runs a matchmaking company, and since Valentine’s day is coming up, Juliet is trying to shun the whole ‘holiday’. The guy she thought was interested in her was just playing her, and well his friend Jared doesn’t like that.

Jared tries everything to win over Juliet, but she is resistant to his charms. He has loved her pretty much his whole life.

“Right Kiss Wrong Guy” brings us Layla’s twin sister’s story and Jared (Tyler’s best friend). At the end of book 1 we find out that Juliet’s boyfriend has eyes for other girls as well. After finally taking a chance on having a social life and a boyfriend, she has her heart crushed and faith in football players ruined forever. Little did she know that Jared has had his eyes on her for quite a while. Now he has to score a lot of points to win her confidence.

Right Kiss Wrong Guy is my first Natalie Decker novel, and I really enjoyed it. I felt like I was back in high school reading it.

Jared was my favorite character. I related to him the most because I lived a similar existent growing up with my dad. I felt bad for him, but at one point I wanted him to give up or man up. He did have a stupid moment where he needed a whack to the back of the head, but he was genuinely a nice guy. His crush and feelings for Juliet were very sweet.

Juliet… I liked her

From a girl who wants to steer to clear of heartache to a jock who wants the only girl he can’t have, this book is filled determination, romance and a little fun. The two main characters are both struggling, but for the exact opposite reason. We’ve all been with these two, be it Juliet, who is just wanting to avoid all heartache, at any cost - I know we’ve all been there after having our hearts ripped out - or Jared - who will give anything to have the girl he’s been crushing madly on since prim ...more

I enjoyed this book.

It is very similar to the first book in the series, Right Text Wrong Guy. Layla’s twin Juliet is the focus of this story. In the first novel, Layla was texting a guy she liked, but didn’t realize it was Tyler. In this book, Juliet slowly falls for her secret admirer who she doesn’t know is Jared. In both stories the guys knew what was going on and we get to see both perspectives of the story.

This story followed the same plot as the first book, so it was predictable. The goo

In the second book of the Offside series, we see Juliet, heartbroken from her very first boyfriend. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, everything is just getting worse. But Juliet is receiving some love-grams from an anonymous admirer that she swears is her cheating-lying ex-boyfriend, but it doesn't seem like it at all... Could Juliet have another chance at finding love?

I gobbled up this book. I loved the flow of the story so much! I love how Juliet's emotions were so well narrate

The first book killed me. Who doesn’t love the stubborn girl with the stubborn boy? But Juliet and Jared won my heart. Maybe I see enough of myself in her to know she deserved the guy who swept her off her feet and reminded her to breathe! I can’t wait for more of this series!

I love this book because I love how the smart sweet jock has to win over the nerdy gamer girl! This book is so relatable to me because I can totally relate to the character Juliet and how she doesn’t like going to dances. If you are going to read this book you should probably read the first one “right text, wrong number.” Enjoy the book! Happy reading!!!

Typical Teen Romance

This series is cute. The teen drama is realistic, as in it’s over the top and drawn out too long. But overall, the storyline is fun and it’s got a happy ending, which always works for me!

Hero who doesn't give up

Liked the first one in the series a bit more, but still good. Quite a bit of language. A girl set to be against romance and a bit set on winning the girl. Plot was enjoyable.

Jared and Justin for starters are just awesome, both are so nice guys you can get behind. Love that the previous story with Layla and Tyler got tied in neatly. I really really really want to see a happy ending for Chase.

I tried, but I cannot with this book. DNF at 19%.

First of all, the editing is horrible - so many missing commas! That stuff drives me nuts and takes me out of the story. Second, I don't believe for a second that a high school girl would automatically hate every single football player because one cheated on her. That's not logical. And last, the dialogue was so unrealistic that it hurt me to read.

This felt like a first draft. If it had a good edit, I bet I could like this book. But as it stands,

I think the writing in this series is getting better with every book. While there are some major grammatical issues, the plot pacing seemed off, and the book ended abruptly, there were also some very sweet swoon worthy moments that I enjoyed. Will probably read the next book in the series. Recommend for grades 6 and up.
