A butch lesbian parolee. The pretty pansexual nurse who got away. Is this their second chance at a happily ever after?

Finn is finally out of prison, which is great. Having no job, no car, and no place to sleep except her cousin’s couch? Not so great. Plus, her felony theft conviction isn’t doing wonders for her employment prospects, so she can’t afford her migraine meds without the public clinic.

The last thing she ever expected was for the gal who stole her heart to come walking down that clinic’s hallway: Vivi, the manicure-loving nurse who spent two years fighting the prison system to get proper medical care for her patients, including Finn.

Finn could never believe she imagined the attraction and affection between them. But acting on that in prison, especially as nurse and patient, had been a serious No Way. She’s had eight months to get over Vivi, who abruptly left her job without saying goodbye. Finn is over it. Honest! It’s totally and completely fine.

Except Vivi, here and now, doesn’t seem fine. And Finn couldn’t live with herself if she didn’t try to help.

Is fate offering Finn a second chance? Or is finding love as likely as finding a job with health insurance?

three-stars

Proceed With Caution:

This book contains discussions of abortion and incarceration.

The Basics:

This is a F/F Romance between Finn, an ex-convict getting her life together, and Vivi, the prison nurse who stole her heart during lockup. Finn and Vivi are reunited after Finn’s release.

My Thoughts:

I have to say that I wouldn’t have picked up Get It Right if I had known what Vivi’s situation was. It’s just not something I’m interested in at all. However, I’m glad that I didn’t know because this is a story worth reading. I really liked seeing Finn working to get her life back on track after spending two years in prison. She’s not a bad person; she just made a huge mistake. It was also cute how she completely misread Vivi’s reactions to seeing her again. Vivi has her own problem going on,  like I said. It could have gone either way, and I know which way I would have preferred. But the two are adorable together.

Get It Right ends in a weird place. It ends so suddenly and felt incomplete. Finn got a job. Vivi made a decision. Then boom. The end. I mean, I guess since both characters are where they want to be, there’s nothing left for them to do. But not really. It seriously just ends. There’s no follow up. Congratulations, bye! I think this would have been fine if we had spent more time with them, but as it is, they’re already in love so it’s just a matter of them officially being together? I don’t know. Although I am glad that I didn’t have to read anymore about Vivi’s progressing situation.

I did enjoy Get It Right overall. The characters are likeable and I loved how the author tackled some topics that aren’t talked about enough (or at all, really) in fiction, especially romance. I’m definitely very interested in all of the side character, so I can’t wait for Allie’s upcoming book!

Sharing is caring!
