Got a Right to Be Wrong by K.L. Brady

got a right to be wrong




Charisse Tyson is about to say “I do” . . .

But could the smart, sassy, curvaceous bride-to-be, who’s more than paid her dues with a string of worthless ex-lovers, have good reason for second thoughts? What if her fiancé, Kevin Douglass—the gorgeous FBI agent who rescued her from a con artist boyfriend and promptly swept her off her feet—turns out to be like all the others? Rissey’s worst nightmare comes true when, one week from their wedding day, they hit a major bump in the road—a baby bump, that is. Kevin reveals that a one-time liaison with his former FBI partner produced a lot more than a one-night stand.

Thrown into a tailspin, Rissey turns to her beloved top-shelf vodka and her best friend Lamar, who makes no secret of his desire to replace Kevin. With her own family in upheaval when the father Rissey has never known enters her life and Kevin desperately trying to make things right, time is running out . . . will she and Kevin survive the drama and make it down the wedding aisle?


Got A Right to Be Wrong by K.L. Brady picks up right where The Bum Magnet ended. Charisse and Kevin are headed to go down the aisle until all hell breaks loose. A baby comes into the picture, there are daddy-daughter issues, and drama is caused by a friend that believes he is a better man for Charisse, and those are just a few of the situations that make up this wonderful sequel.

“Now, with one stupid mistake, one failure to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and all the effort I’d made to earn her trust had dissipated.”

Kevin is one of those characters that I wanted to make human and slap him upside his head but on the other hand I found myself hoping that he would be the one. Kevin makes it hard for Charisse to trust him again because he often listens to his friends instead of simply doing what is right.

And, don’t get me started on daddy issues. Charisse was hanging on to forty plus years of resentment and anger towards her father.

“The rage I experienced all those years he didn’t demonstrate an ounce of concern for my well-being, the years he wouldn’t even speak to me or send me a simple birthday card to acknowledge my existence in the world. Could a father hurt his child more?”

Brady writes this aspect of the book with such conviction that it felt as if I were Charisse.

The Bum Magnet was one of the funniest books I have read recently and I must admit that it was quite surprising yet refreshing to see that Got A Right to Be Wrong took on more serious subject matters. Brady writes in a style that I personally prefer: it is real and an accurate portrayal of how people’s conversations go. And, this quote perfectly summarizes the book as well as Brady’s writing style:

“Baby, marriage ain’t nothing if not real. And the longer a marriage lasts, the more real it gets. That’s what you signed up for. You didn’t sign up for a lifelong fairy tale. You signed up for a lifetime of real. So, now you got real.”

Once again, Brady has knocked it out the park and I look forward to reading more from her!




  1. Thank you SOOO MUCH! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Yes, it’s more serious than The Bum Magnet, but I’m glad you found it fulfilling all the same. 🙂
