REVIEW: Two Wrongs Make a Right, by Chloe Liese

Since I've been doing so much reading lately, and not so much writing, I'm going to start posting a new romance book review every Tuesday. First up:


📕Two Wrongs Make a Right

✍️Chloe Liese





⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5: An affirming, diverse, and emotionally-healthy love story.


Setting:


📍Urban United States

⏰ Present day


The MCs:


♀️ Beatrice (Bea) Wilmot. 20s or early 30s. A professional artist. Plurally-tattooed. Neurodiverse (autistic) and LGBT+.

♂️ James “Jamie” a.k.a. “West” Westenberg. Late 20s or early 30s. A pediatrician. Glasses. Lives with anxiety.


Pluses from my perspective:


❤️ Intelligent, modern, progressive tone.

❤️ Diverse and LGBT+ side characters.

❤️ Healthy relationship dynamics between the MMCs.

❤️ Affirming of everyone’s right to a happily-ever-after, including those who live with mental health diagnoses and neurodivergence.

❤️ Loving, mutual give-and-take spice.

❤️ Swoony and sexy.


Things that made me go hmm:


🤔 I honestly can’t think of any, unless you count the third-act breakup, which is near-universal in the romance genre. I’d love to see some fresh ways to add conflict. Hmm… loading new ideas…. 💡


Spice rating by my own scale:


🌶️🌶️🌶️ out of 5: Still no more than four open door / on-page sex scenes. Sex acts and body parts are described relatively explicitly and/or using swear words. Bodily fluids and their movement are referenced, but relatively less explicitly. 


Content advisories:


⚠️ Toxic dynamics within the MMC’s family of origin.

⚠️ Emotional abuse and toxic dynamics within a side character’s romantic relationship.

⚠️ Emotional abuse within an MC’s past romantic relationship (described, not shown on page).

⚠️ Third-act breakup.
