Summary

Two young do-gooders working to change the world find friendship and maybe more in a cutthroat business, but when the stakes are higher than they ever imagined, will a betrayal bring them together—or ruin everything?

Kellan “Kell” Luview is a new man. He left his tourist-trap small town and his dad’s business behind in rural Maine for a position at an environmental policy think tank in Washington, DC. More comfortable climbing trees than talking about them, he’s determined to stretch his wings as he builds a new life with an ambitious girlfriend and smart friends who are just as dedicated as he is.

Despite his love for his work and the excitement of DC, he feels pulled in too many directions when his girlfriend, Alissa, starts acting weird, his best friend, Rachel, needs an embarrassing public rescue, and his mom hints that things are not going well at home in Luview–“Love You”–Maine, where every day is Valentine’s Day.

As a shocking betrayal shakes the very foundation of everything he believes in, Kell must decide who to trust, who to challenge, who needs him most—and figure out fast whether Rachel’s warnings about his girlfriend are credible or yet another tactical maneuver in a city founded on them.

Unraveling the mystery of who to believe pits Kell against Rachel in a battle where the truth is uncertain and hearts are just collateral damage as ambition rules over feelings.

But Kell’s had enough.

More than enough.

Time to decide what kind of man he is—and who to trust.

Love You Wrong is a novel-length prequel (40,000 words), introducing New York Times best-selling romantic comedy author Julia Kent’s new Love You, Maine series. If you love rom-coms about friends who are meant for more, deep intrigue, big misunderstandings, tests of loyalty, and small town/big city clashes, then pick up this prequel and try out a new-to-you series.

Audiobook narrated by Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton!

Exciting introduction to the series.

A heated emotional start to what seem to be an exciting series ahead. With controversies, miss-trust, heart breaks back biting, angsts galore. I can't wait to see what happens next.

I received a free copy.

Great Beginning

I love reading books by Ms. Kent. Her books are hysterical. She comes up with the most crazy and zany circumstances for her characters. Teddy and Erin as Kel and Rachel were fabulously performed. They were able to convey what the town of Luview is all about.

Great Read

Love You Wrong (Love You, Maine #0.5) was a great read by Julia Kent. Kellan "Kell" Luview, left his tourist-trap small town as well as his dad's business behind in rural Maine. He is working at an environmental policy think tank in Washington, D.C. He is more comfortable climbing trees, than actually talking about them. He feels as though he is pulled in too many directions when his girlfriend Alissa starts acting weird. His best friend Rachel needs an embarrassing public rescue. His mom also hints that things are not going well at home in Luview Maine, where everyday is Valentine's Day. Tell must decide who to trust, he must also figure out fast whether Rachel's warnings about Alissa are credible. This pits Kell against Rachel in a battle where truth is uncertain and hearts will be damaged. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Cute Romantic Prequel

This was my first experience with Julia Kent's work, and it was entertaining. This was a prequel and so the content was limited, which might be why I didn't think that the story was as complete as it could have been. I'm interested enough in the characters that I'm looking forward to the first book in the series. Erin Mallon's and Teddy Hamilton's dual narrations were fun. They were easy to listen to and I enjoyed their performances. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.

What a fun start to Luview…

Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton do a wonderful job bringing Julia Kent’s characters to life. We meet Rachel and Kell in DC where they’re trying to save the planet one lemur at a time. Plenty of drama and laughs as the story unfolds. A misunderstanding (and trusting the wrong person) leave these two at odds with a perfect lead-in into Love You Right. I’ve already started listening and loving it just as much.

Loved this.

A prequel to the Love You Right story line, in this newest series by Julia Kent. This story has much drama and angst, but also the humor we expect from this author. Including a strange and hilarious wake. Grab this and then continue on to the next in this series

Enjoyed this!

I’m looking forward to the rest of the series, despite the evil big oil…blah, blah, blah. Ignoring that, I really enjoyed it!
