He's the last resolution she intends to break.

Still licking his wounds after a messy breakup, Nate is at loose ends for New Year's Eve and itching for a wild and crazy adventure to jolt him out of his rut. Now if he could only convince his best friend, Cassie, to break away for an impromptu road trip to Times Square.

Fun as it sounds, Cassie is reluctant to accept Nate's invitation. Little does he know, she's made resolutions of her own-resolutions about finally getting over her long-standing crush on him. Telling herself this trip will be the perfect "last hurrah," she packs her bag.

The trip is a fiasco from the outset. A car that won't start, a freak storm that strands them on the side of the road, and a long drive with too much time for true confessions. Cassie's rocks Nate to the core, leaving him wondering if the best thing that ever happened to him has been right in front of him all along.

Warning: Contains two best friends, a secret crush, and a road trip that leads to tow trucks, unexpected hotel-room sharing, epiphanies, sex, and more.

I LOVE romances about best friends when one has a secret crush.

Nate and Cassie have been best friends for about 5 years and all that time Cassie sat back and watched Nate go through one relationship after another. Nate has only seen Cassie as his best friend but after a messy break up he starts noticing she’s kind of hot.

After talking Cassie into an impromptu trip to New York to watch the ball drop for New Year’s the two have one hell of a road trip that leads them to facing their feelings for each other.

When It’s Right is the 3rd novella I’ve read by Jeanette Grey and like the others the only thing I can complain about is the length of the story.  While Grey does a great job of giving you characters you care about and romances that can curl your toes I want her to write a full length novel, I would have loved to have a longer story for Nate and Cassie. So Jeanette if you’re reading this, make it happen. LOL

If you’re looking for a quick and satisfying romance give When It’s Right a read.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. Thank you so much for the review. My next book, coming out summer 2014 is full-length. Shorter formats come more easily for me, but I’ve definitely been working on it!
