Haley Mitchell is ready to move on from her ex and mend her broken heart.  On a night out with her girlfriend, she meets a guy that just might be her "Mr. Perfect".  But when he accidentally gives her the wrong number in the noisy club, the mystery man behind the "wrong" number becomes somewhat of a confidant for Haley.  He is safe... a mystery to her and she is able to have a honest "conversation" with him and values his opinion.  And she doesn't even know his name, so she nicknamed him Clark (after Superman). 

Computer guru Kyle Lawson hasn't had the best luck with women.  They tend to either put him in the friend zone or use him for his smarts.  And when he meets the new temp, Haley, he is instantly attracted to her smarts, wit, and bubbly personality.  The two strike up an office friendship.  After Kyle discovers that Haley is the "Lois" to his "Clark", he doesn't know what to do.  He is fears that if he tells Haley that he is "Clark" that she won't want anything to do with him anymore, and if he doesn't tell her he can still talk to her without fear of rejection.  Haley seems to be able to talk to "Clark" more about matters of her heart.  

Their friendship builds into deeper feelings for both Haley and Kyle.  But secrets don't usually stay secrets forever.  So what will happen when Haley finds out that Kyle is her "Clark".  Will she be able to forgive Kyle?  And will Kyle be able to convince Haley that he is nothing like her ex?    

Until It's Right is the the first book I've read by Jamie Howard.  I don't think I really want to go back and read Until We Break (Luke Evan 'Haley's ex' and Sloane Avery) story.  I'm not a big fan of "cheating" books and from Haley's story, that is what Until We Break sounds like.  Plus I didn't really like the little bit of Sloane I read about in this book.  But after all that, I really liked Haley and Kyle's story.  It was a really sweet read and I thought just what Haley needed after what she went through with her ex.
