Review: Get It Right by Skye Kilaen

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

Cover Design: Laya Rose

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?

A high heat contemporary F/F romance novella with a guaranteed HEA. Detailed content warnings are available in the book’s front matter and on the author’s website for those who need them.

My thoughts

Get It Right is a great romance. 

Skye Kilaen tackles a romance starring someone who is formerly incarcerated. There are so many issues about the criminal justice system and Kilaen highlights a lot of them, especially the issues upon release. I love that someone is focusing on these issues, giving them the light, they deserve, and incorporating it into a romance. Kilaen doesn’t make excuses for Finn, it just is what it is.

I don’t know if I would say “high heat” as the blurb states, there is some “fun” but it is pretty tame in the romance genre. It does have a great friends to lovers premise with a twist thrown in. There are plenty of bisexuals around, plus other rainbows. Body positivity is highlighted and as a curvy person myself, it is appreciated.

The issues regarding an unplanned pregnancy are discussed. Just want to give a heads up in case this is a trigger for someone.

I like Finn and Vivi together. I like the premise. What is even better is that this is the first book in the Love At Knockdown series, this means we get to see more of the gang and I am happy about it. 

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
