Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway/Author Interview - Wrong Kind Of Love by Amanda Heath



Genre: Contemporary New Adult

The first time I ever saw Caden Harper I’m pretty sure I fell in love.

All that golden hair and pale blue eyes. He was mysterious and covered

in paint. I found it endearing and wanted nothing more than to find

out all his secrets. I gave that man things I would never give anyone

else. He blew it though. Which I shouldn’t be surprised considering he

is a womanizer.

So I moved on, well kind of. Jaden Harper wasn’t what I expected. I

found myself drawn to him all most as much as his brother. Maybe it’s

the fact they are twins or maybe it was the fact I wanted to live on

the wrong side for once in my life.

Now I’ve found myself dug deep in this game. Theres no end in sight

and I wonder when all the lies I have told will come back to haunt me.

Neither man should know the things I’ve gone through. Neither should

trust me. I’m not who I say I am. My past is full of things I won’t

ever share.

But where will that lead me when Caden wants nothing more than to

consume me? He won’t wake up to see he has the wrong kind of love.

My Name is Grace BreadField and this is my story.

Author Interview

What is the most important thing about being a writer? 
My readers. If there weren't people out there who want to read my books, then I wouldn't be writing.

Where do you get your inspiration from? 
Everyday life. A lot of the stuff in my books comes from things that happened to me or my closest friends. And I add random stuff that I love throughout 

How do you cope if you get a bad review? 
I don't read the bad reviews. I do not have thick skin and if I read the bad reviews, I would think everyone thought that way. Plus people are being nasty these days.

How do you choose your characters names?
Several characters have their names stolen from a real person that I know, or have heard about. Example: Chance is the name of one of the closest friend to my husband. My Chance and the real Chance are nothing alike. They don't even look alike.

Occupational hazards about being a writer? 
Lmao. Lets see, I generally lose a lot of weight when writing a book because I focus only on writing, and not eating. My social life declines. My friends say I get "bitchy" when I'm writing, so they don't come over. My child tends to go insane and sit under my chair and scream. She also likes to suck on my toes while I'm writing. True Story.

What book or film character would you say you were most like? 
Sam from Tijan's Fallen Crest series. I see myself in her quite a lot. I don't run until I nearly pass out but I'm pretty sure I love Mason as much as she does. 

Which book has been the hardest to write? 
Wrong Kind of Love. I am wholly against cheating. It took me months to write this one because I couldn't justify it in my head. I had actually never intended to write this book but my fans were screaming for it, so there you go.

Any hints as to what lies ahead for your characters? 
Jaden will have a happy ending…if the girl is Ava…well you'll just have to figure that out. 

Favourite character? 
Norma Jean

Least favourite? 
I hate Spencer

Which character would you like to meet in real life? 
Mason Kade from Tijan's Fallen Crest Series

Your favourite authors? 
Gena Showalter, Kresley Cole, Richelle Mead, Tijan, Penelope Douglas, Shanora Williams

Favourite book right now? 
Bully by Penelope Douglas

What genres of books do you read? 
Right now I read New Adult

Childhood book? 
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

Did you ever dream you would become an author? 
Yes! I've been writing since before I can remember

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
Hopefully still doing this!

Random questions -

Favourite color? Green

Favourite food? Sushi

Best childhood memory? Snuggling with my cat Sumie. He passed away at six years old. I have his name tattooed on my wrist.

Best ever purchase? Can be something big or small. My Kindle

Best memory as an adult? Giving birth to my daughter

Is there a person, alive or dead, you dream about meeting if you could? Anne Boleyn

My Review
3.5 Stars

Girl meets boy, likes him. Boy meets girl, likes her. They get together. Seems simple enough doesn't it? But things aren't as they first appear.

Grace is a troubled young woman who meets Caden Harper and is instantly attracted to him. She quickly discovers that he likes rough sex, and it would appear so does she. But is she really Grace, or is she hiding her true identity from him?

Caden has a twin brother, Jaden. Grace's brother David decides that Jaden would be more suited to Grace as Caden is the typical bad boy/womaniser type. Grace agrees, but instantly knows she has made the wrong decision. She just cannot stay away from Caden, and they have more than a few dalliances while she is with Jaden.

Grace is so unsure of what she wants all the time that she constantly goes between Caden and Jaden, without letting anyone else know, except her brother. She is trying to do what is right and keep her brother safe, but in doing the 'right thing' she has the ability to cause a lot more hurt to a lot of people.

Caden also has problems from his past which dictate how he is in the present. With two people hiding secrets not only from each other but from friends and family, can they really have a future? 

Of course, when the secrets they are hiding finally come out, as they always do, can Grace and Caden hope to have the future they dream about? Or will they be forced to live without each other?

This was quite a quick read for me. It wasn't a subject matter I was 100% comfortable reading if I'm totally honest, as it involves cheating. It has a lot of graphic sex scenes in it as well as a lot of swearing so would definitely recommend this book for those over 17 at least. 

At times the storyline really annoyed me, especially with Grace constantly bouncing back and forward between the brothers. It's bad enough cheating, but when you cheat with your, so called, boyfriends brother, it's so much worse in my eyes. The storyline aside, the book was just ok for me.
