Review: So Wrong It Must Be Right (Gallagher & Ivy) by Nicole Helm

Print Length:
Publisher: Lyrical Press (March 21, 2017)

From It’s all fun and games until fantasy gets real . . .
At twenty-seven, Dinah Gallagher thought she’d have it all figured out. Instead, she’s having mind-blowing online sex with a man she knows nothing about and fighting for her rightful place in the family business. Part of that battle means expanding their century-old restaurant by getting the stubborn urban farmer next door to sell them his lot.
But Carter Trask is tired of being pushed around—especially by rich families like the Gallaghers. All he has left is the little farm he’s scratched out of his grandmother’s yard. At least he can blow off steam with the anonymous woman he’s been emailing for the past eight months, who makes his every sexual fantasy come alive—even if it’s only online.
When Dinah suddenly realizes that Carter’s gardens look just like some of her mystery man’s photos, she can’t resist trying to turn her dreams into reality. Against his better judgment, Carter joins in the game. But in real life, passion has a way of becoming very complicated, very quickly. And sometimes the wrong choice can turn out to be oh so right . . .

My Rating: 3 stars out of 5
This is one of those stories that I like to call "erotica with a plot". Meaning there is a lot of sex taking place throughout the novel, however while the sex is a (big) part of the plot, there are other stories happening at the same time which overshadow the sexy scenes. 

I very much enjoyed the chemistry between Dinah and Carter, and watching them find a balance between their "online personas" and their "real lives". I found it interesting that they could have such an open dislike for each other as Dinah and Carter, but found such an intense passion as "D & C". The Gallagher Tap House angle was also interesting and added another layer to this story.

Unfortunately, what kept me from ultimately rating this story at a higher level is the ending. It felt very rushed to me, and I wish there had been more closure between Dinah and her family. As it was, things were left very open and unfinished and that took away from my overall enjoyment of the story. 

Overall, I am sure this story may still appeal to those who enjoy erotica with a plot novels.
