It takes a good third or more of the book before she meets Dak Savage, and when she does, sparks fly. But Dak isn't the guy she was going to use as a sperm donor, so things go from messy to disastrous, with a mixture of lighthearted moments and intense, angsty drama.
Although I felt it took too long to develop, the plot has some unique aspects. It's part romantic comedy, part angst-filled romance, but it works. The lighter moments help offset the moments when I wanted to a) slap Quinn, or b) smack Dak.
The characters are fun, well-rounded, and include enough growth to make them a little different from many characters in the genre. Quinn bordered on annoying a few too many times, and Dak needed to pull his head out of his ass on pretty much a regular basis. Dak's twin sister, Sim, is awesome and might just be my favorite character in the book. I loved Quinn's BFF Raynie as well. In fact, I would totally ship Sim and Raynie if they swung that way.
Ann Everett has a fun voice that reminds me a little of Janet Evanovitch, but is really all her own. Her attention to scene settings helps bring the story to three-dimensional life.
Top Five Things I enjoyed about Two Wrongs Make a Right:
1. Quinn's apartment. Although a lot of time is spent bashing her run-down apartment, the way she decorates it to make it all her own is pure eclectic delight.
2. Raynie. The tarot-card reading free spirit is the perfect foil to Quinn's usual uptightness.
3. Sim. Dak's smart-mouthed twin sister brings perspective, giving her brother a much-needed kick-in-the-ass.
4. Quinn's grandpa. His obsession with his bowels provides some of the best lines.
5. Online dating. While many of the guys Quinn meets through online dating are caricatures, the world of online dating is filled with a lot of landmines, and Ann Everett portrays it with a critical eye and a healthy dose of hilarity.
Two Wrongs Make a Right is an interesting twist on the contemporary romance, filled with humor and heart.
Quinn Dorsey is getting close to her 35th birthday. Determined to be married with a baby on the way soon. As the women in her family go through menopause early. She just knows her boyfriend of three years is ready to propose. Brad taking her to an expensive restaurant and allowing her to choose anything she wants, when any other time he is so concerned about money, makes her think it all the more. When it is time for desert and Brad informs her he is moving away and not taking her. Quinn realizes now she doesn't have a man and time is running out on the baby. Joining a dating site to hurry things along Quinn realizes this isn't going to either. To hard to work through the toads. When she talks her friends into helping her trick a man into having sex with her with the sole purpose of getting pregnant. She never expected to have such a physical attraction to the man or that he would ever find out the truth.
Dak had given up on one night stands and bar pick ups, until the night her meet Molly aka Quinn at a bar. After a night of the most intense sex he ever remembers having and taking her back to his place for the weekend. He didn't want to let her go. But when Monday morning rolls around and he wakes up alone. He is determined to find her. yet no matter how hard he looks he can't seems to find anyone who knows he.
Loved the storyline. It was so very wrong what Quinn did. I saw her point and she thought herself desperate. When things went wrong and she ended up with the man that actually had morals about family. Yes Dak was a player but a careful one. After everything the way he treats Quinn even knowing that he has feeling for her was so wrong. Hence the title of the book. But making wrongs doesn't take away from the humor and angst that flows through the story. You find yourself caught up in the web of their own making.
“His heart kicked up again and he wanted to crush his lips against hers. Hold her so close he could feel her heart beat against his chest. Then she spoke and brought him back to reality.”
4 stars, this story is funny, romantic and super sweet all at the same time! This book didn’t disappoint at all!
How can something so wrong…
All Quinn Dorsey wants is a white picket fence fairy tale. But after another failed relationship and her biological clock ticking double time, she’s desperate enough to try online dating. Following a series of worst dates ever, she decides happily-ever-after isn't in the Tarot cards. Forget Cupid, it's time to take matters into her own hands. A simple seduction should do the trick, but then everything that can go wrong...does!
…Turn out to be so right
Dak Savage isn't interested in commitment. He's been burned by women before - lied to, used, even shot. Hell, he considers women a curse and has one rule he never breaks - don't pick up women in bars. But when he agrees to a guys' night out and meets up with the feisty, fast talking Quinn, his rule shatters like a dropped shot glass.
A one night stand turns into a long weekend and as Quinn tries to abandon her ridiculous scheme, she finds herself nose-to-nose and toe-to-toe with the best mistake she's ever made.
Quinn’s biological clock is ticking and she’s almost past her prime. She’s had three failed long term relationships and she’s desperate to find the one. Her friends give her the idea to join a dating website and although reluctant at first she goes for it. After that idea fails, she decides to hit on a friends co-worker, but she never realized that she’d fall for him. Scared she runs because she’s told him lies about herself and she’s afraid to show him the real her. Dak is tired of long term dating, he’s had his fill. He’s been hurt way too many times for his liking. His family wants him to settle down and start a family, but that’s not even close to what he wants. While out with his friends one night, he sees Quinn and he’s intrigued instantly. And although their relationship is based on lies, they can’t deny the feelings they have for each other. This book was super sweet and very romantic. Great story!!

Quinn was a very relatable character. She is a woman in her thirties and after her boyfriend of three years broke up with her, she knew her biological clock ticking. So, she and her two friends created a profile on a dating website, and you get to experience the interesting first dates with Quinn and you can’t help but laugh. Quinn is one of those characters that you just want to hug because through her flaws, she is a very sweet person and she feels like a REAL person. She is someone that could be your best friend, or even you.
Dak was just downright sexy and charming and everything you want in man. He’s in his late thirties and doesn’t want a commitment, but an encounter with Quinn leaves him wanting more. He knows how to treat women, but after being burned by so many, he keeps them at a distance. You know that deep down he has so many great qualities just wanting to surface. The last half of the book, I kind of wanted to slap him because I wanted him to just STOP being a little... jerk. The lack of communication between the two was frustrating beyond belief but it built up to a great ending and the whole time you're doing nothing but rooting for them.
This was the first novel by Ann Everett that I have read, and I am now HOOKED. I am still reeling from the emotions I felt during it and every twinge of pain my heart felt and every tear that escaped my eyes is something I know other readers will feel. I am already ready for a re-read! This was amazing.
Then her long term boyfriend dumps her and her life is thrown into chaos.
She decides that even if she doesn't have the white picket fence, wedding or man she can still have a child.
Dak is a manwhore, okay so maybe not I mean he does have short term affairs with his conquests. He's heading towards 40 as well and dates only early 20 somethings with a specific body type. Then when it's time to end a relationship he can use the I'm too old for you line and move on. Until he meets Quinn. Someone so far out of his norm but he can't take his eyes off her. She's not the blond stick figure 25 year olds he's used to, she's a real woman with curves and flaws and his own age.
One weekend with her and she disappears but he can't get her off his mind and continues to search for her.
Purely but chance he finds her and all hell breaks loose.
And honestly as horrible as his treatment of Quinn was at times I can't really blame the guy. Her deception was beyond messed up, she's lucky he needed to keep his job or things may have turned out much differently.
Okay, not going to lie. Honestly when I read Quinn's plan and she actually went through with it I almost put the book down. The route she took was without a doubt wrong. Wrong in so many ways, her guilt and need to tell the truth is what kept me reading and I'm glad I did as the rest of the story was definitely worth it.
This was my first Ann Everett book but I'm a fan, I'll definitely look for more by the author.
