About Love You Wrong
Two young do-gooders working to change the world find friendship and maybe more in a cutthroat business, but when the stakes are higher than they ever imagined, will a betrayal bring them together—or ruin everything?
Kellan “Kell” Luview is a new man. He left his tourist-trap small town and his dad’s business behind in rural Maine for a position at an environmental policy think tank in Washington, D.C. More comfortable climbing trees than talking about them, he’s determined to stretch his wings as he builds a new life with an ambitious girlfriend and smart friends who are just as dedicated as he is.
Despite his love for his work and the excitement of D.C., he feels pulled in too many directions when his girlfriend Alissa starts acting weird, his best friend Rachel needs an embarrassing, public rescue, and his mom hints that things are not going well at home in Luview–“Love You”–Maine, where every day is Valentine’s Day.
As a shocking betrayal shakes the very foundation of everything he believes in, Kell must decide who to trust, who to challenge, who needs him most—and figure out fast whether Rachel’s warnings about his girlfriend are credible.
Or yet another tactical maneuver in a city founded on them.
Unraveling the mystery of who to believe pits Kell against Rachel in a battle where the truth is uncertain and hearts are just collateral damage as ambition rules over feelings.
But Kell’s had enough.
More than enough.
Time to decide what kind of man he is—and who to trust.

An Excerpt from Love You Wrong
“Oh, no. I killed Leo! I was naked in public, and I killed an endangered animal beloved by thousands of children!” she moaned. An older woman carrying two shopping bags started to enter the bus shelter, halted, and turned abruptly to leave.
“You need to go home, Rachel. Take a bath, clean that cut, put some antibiotic cream on it, and–”
“How? I’m naked!”
He looked at her. “You have your shoes, and my jacket, and most of the costume. Can you stand up? Can you pull the suit up at all?”
On shaking legs, she slowly did as he suggested. Kell was so much taller than she was, his jacket came to a spot above her knees.
“Good enough,” he muttered. “I’ll take you home.”
“My keys! My wallet, my phone!”
Another wave of horror washed over her.
“Got ’em. They fell out of the suit when you unzipped. Check my inside jacket pocket.”
She reached in, relieved to find everything there, though the phone screen was cracked.
“How did you have the presence of mind to pick them up?”
He shrugged. “I stay calm in a crisis.”
“I clearly don’t.”
“I wasn’t the one being choked to death by a pedicab trying to drag me off, then being stripped half-naked to red lace panties and bra in public.”
Red lace. He said red lace.
The man had noticed.
