Wrong Question, Right Answer by Elle Casey
Genres: Romantic Suspense
As a member of the Bourbon Street Boys private security firm, Antoinette “Toni” Delacourte is one strong woman, but despite her reputation for being tough as nails, she is haunted by her past mistakes. Now they’re catching up to her, and throwing her for a loop.
Ten years ago, Toni kissed Lucky, her brother’s best friend. Worried it would break apart the group she’d come to see as family, she walked away—straight into the arms of Charlie, and an abusive relationship.
For the past decade she’s tried to keep her feelings for Lucky platonic—he’s her friend, her colleague, and he’s got his own past to deal with. Free of Charlie but unable to shake his memory, Toni finds herself feeling vulnerable and unable to deny her attraction to Lucky any longer.
She’s always thought that kiss was her first mistake, but now she’s wondering whether the real mistake was running away.
So far this is has been my favorite book of the series. I wasn’t really sure about Toni in the last two books because she is so stand-offish. I knew there was a story there and boy do we get it. Both Toni and Lucky battle some inner demons that have lead them to become the people they are. Toni was in an abusive relationship in the past and when it got to be too much she took matters into her own hands. While Lucky has his own burden of guilt over the death of his sister. If two people ever needed love it is them and they find it with each other. Right away the line of friends and coworkers become blurred and Lucky ends up having to push Toni every step of the way to break down her walls. She is so afraid of people seeing her as weak that she can’t seem to realize these same people are her family and love her regardless of any perceived weakness on her part.
I also loved the friendship between Toni and May that is building. I mean these two doing surveillance is super funny!
“Seconds later, her attention is on something else. “Look! Hookers.”
She lifts her camera and shoots off a few frames. When she’s done, she takes a look in her viewfinder and smiles. “She’s actually really pretty. Did you see her legs? Gorgeous. I wish I had legs like that.” She sighs.
I snort. “You’d need a set of testicles to have those legs.”
I hate to say it but that would be me as well! I think that Toni really needs May even if she doesn’t want to admit it. May teaches her to be a bit softer and helps her see herself differently. Another great scene was the May’s wedding! I mean only these two could manage to invite such a bad guy to a wedding. You have to read it to find out what I am talking about!
