There is something just so deep about many of Baird’s characters; the little gestures and actions that convey a world of understanding or tell you so much about a character. I just love it! It connects you so strongly to the story.

"Right Girl Wrong Side" by Ginny Baird is a charming romantic comedy that delivers laughs, heart, and plenty of chemistry. From the moment I met protagonists Jenna and Nate, I was immediately swept up in their whirlwind romance. Baird's writing is witty and engaging, capturing the ups and downs of modern dating with humor and warmth. As Jenna and Nate navigate the challenges of their unconventional relationship, I found myself rooting for them every step of the way. The banter between the two characters is delightful, and their chemistry leaps off the page. Baird expertly balances lighthearted humor with genuine emotion, creating a story that is both entertaining and heartfelt. "Right Girl Wrong Side" is a delightful romp that will leave readers smiling long after they've turned the final page. Whether you're a fan of romantic comedies or simply looking for a feel-good read, this book is sure to hit the spot. Baird's storytelling is as irresistible as it is entertaining, and I can't wait to see what she writes next.

I’m not sure how I feel about this one still. I liked it while I was reading it but I found it very forgettable. I did really like the characters and the story line.

This gave me Romeo and Juliet feels and I loved every minute of it. This was my first Ginny Baird book and it definitely won't be my last!

This was SO boring. it was a series of silly events repeated over and over. the main characters were too kooky and it seemed childish.

Rating 2.75 or 3 stars (still not sure)

Thank you NetGalley for the e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

It seems like a low rating though I did fly through it. Overall, I did enjoy the story, the setting as well as the whole theme of family and the importance of that connection.

Although I know it's the whole point of the story being about two families (well the mum's) being 'enemies' but I got tired of their petty arguments so quickly. It felt repetitive for majority of the story until the end. As well it being about Evita and Ryan I felt like the main focus was building a connection within your family. I appreciated that part and found it refreshing that the two main characters weren't the drama in the book (if that makes sense). They're relationship was cute!

I did love how it finalised and wrapped up nicely.

This book was super cute, and I found myself reading and listening at the same time. It was a bit predictable and cheesy but it was a cute read

Here is a really good story about two different families both bidding on the same house in Nauntukett with only one winning but both show up. You have a Puerto Rican family and a not Puerto Rican family and from there you can just imagine the differences. This turns out to be a good book with a romance between the female and male from each family and along the way you are set to see the interactions between each family and the changes that happen along the way. A really good story and many good characters. I received this book from Netgalley.com

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley.

Evita Machado is looking forward to a summer vacation with her whole family in Nantucket. They have not been together in a bit and she misses her whole, messy, loud loving family she has. She just had a relationship end so a change of scenery would be great also.

Ryan Hatfield is looking forward to a summer vacation with his family. His little sister is 15 years younger and his parents very absorbed in their respective businesses. He is hoping to reconnect with them all.

When there is a mix up at the auction and both families have a large house in Nantucket for the same two weeks, decisions need to be made. These two families are not strangers to each other. The moms have had a rivalry since their senior year in high school and it is fueled by competing businesses. Their children - Evita and Ryan - knew each other in high school, and while they had crushes on each other, they were not allowed to act due to their mom's feud. But now that they are all under one roof, can the moms keep them apart?

Right Girl, Wrong Side is a funny story if two families that do not get along who are forced to vacation together. Ryan and Evita are so sweet together and it was nice to watch their relationship develop.

I had read another book by this author and all the reviews talked about "Puerto Rican Christmas traditions" that I never saw. This book on the other hand does have a lot of small things that of course made me think of Puerto Rico.

Now the story was just a bit weird to me or I lost interest pretty quickly. I wanted to finish this book because I wanted to see how it played out. But two women holding a grudge about something that happened in high school, so childish. To the point that they don't want their adult children to spend time together, bleh.

Thank you NetGalley for the e-arc version of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This is a cute story about 2 family matriarchs who don’t get along at all. Due to a mixup, they’ve both been told they won a week in a house on Nantucket. When both families show up at the same time, the tension is taut. They agree to use different parts of the house at different times so they don’t run into each other.

One family, the Mechados, have a daughter, Evita, and the other, the Hatfields, have a son, Ryan. Evita and Ryan dates in high school but their mother’s made them break up. Now that they’re in the same place, they find opportunities to slip away together and rekindle their romance. But how can they be together when their mothers are enemies?

I liked the characters and the resolution of the story, 3 stars.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed as in this review are completely my own.

I was so excited to be approved for this book but I found the story fell a little flat for me. I feel like I’ve read similar books with similar settings as this one. Feuding families, drama, I was hoping for a little more. It wasn’t terrible but I didn’t feel very engaged while reading and didn’t find myself liking the characters. I was told it was a Romeo and Juliet retelling but I didn’t get that vibe.

Enjoyable and adorable but it did not hold my attention the entire time. The humour was great if a little corny.

I struggled with getting to the end of this because I got really put off with the childish drama between the mothers, which I honestly think could have been resolved with a mature conversation. This snowballed and made me frustrated with the main characters which I hated because the premise of this book sounded so interesting and I really liked the cover.
