A missed opportunity in the past makes for an unexpected encounter now between two people meant for each other – but who square off in a very public battle of wills in the small town of Love You, Maine, where every day is Valentine's Day. Can love conquer all in a town steeped in it?
Kell Luview refuses to be a sucker at love again. Five years ago, he left D.C. with his pride deeply damaged and his heart broken. Fiercely protective of his small town in rural Maine, he's determined to save the family tree business and avoid his feelings at all costs, no matter how much he longs to solve the mystery of what happened in D.C.
L.A. native Rachel Hart hates being underestimated almost as much as she hates this small town. She has two goals on this trip: get out of the cheesy tourist trap of Love You, Maine with a completed business deal, and avoid running into Kell, her old friend from D.C. who never became an old flame because of a huge misunderstanding.
One that still aches.
When her rental car breaks down on a logging road and Kell comes to her rescue, it's clear he's a changed man – and not for the good. Grumpy and reserved, he pushes all her buttons, still stubbornly convinced she betrayed him all those years ago. He's never forgiven her, and she's never forgiven herself for carrying a torch for him.
An embarrassing incident gets the town gossip mill going when residents wrongly assume Kell and Rachel are the newest couple to find love in the most romantic place on Earth. But the townsfolk aren't wrong for long...
As Rachel breaks through his defenses and charms the town, he faces his biggest fear: all those pesky feelings he's been avoiding.
Because they're all about Rachel now.
And maybe they always were.
Can Kell and Rachel fight their growing attraction in the one place in the world where you can't avoid love?
If you're looking for a fun read about enemies to lovers, forced proximity, heroines who get their comeuppance and sworn bachelors felled by unexpected true love, featuring a hot bearded lumberjack impervious to poison ivy, and a city-slicker, jaded career woman with a penchant for great coffee, set in a small town in New England - then this is your book.
Grab a cup of (properly good) coffee, a can of hot cocoa mix, a jar of Fluff and maybe some calamine lotion (just in case), and get your happymeter ready as you read the very first book in New York Times bestselling romantic comedy author Julia Kent's Love You, Maine series - where love isn't just a feeling - it's a way of life.

Getting to meet Kell and Rachel is Love You Wrong was perfect otherwise I don’t know that I would have liked this book as much.
A town that is like Valentine’s Day every day sounds like the perfect place to fall in love but with most of the town hating Rachel, I wasn’t sure it would ever work out between them.
This book is absolutely hilarious and adorable. I loved every second, even the ones leaving me a mess of tears. I’m so excited for Luke’s HEA.
Kell and Rachel were friends and then enemies. At least that’s what he thought. When they next run into each other, it’s five years later and each has changed, but the hurt from the past continues. So does the attraction that manifested itself in that almost kiss.
Second chances, a randy Moose named Randy, lots of
Chocolate, and town where Valentine’s is 24/7/365 all make for a truly wonderful romance.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Luview!
This is Love You Right, book one of the fresh new series Love You, Maine written by Julia Kent. Ms Kent is known for writing hilarious romantic comedies with the most insane circumstances. You will learn quickly as you LOL at this one. Rachel is in the town to handle some company business when she runs into Kell Luview, who is forced to reluctantly rescue her. You will be rooting for them as you watch them butt heads over and over. This book had me laughing from the very beginning with only some super glue and a long ride into town. I'm so excited to meet all of the folks in the town of Luview Maine and I'm dying to read Luke's story!
