Cora Matthews grew up with the Adams’ boys, twin brothers and best friends who wouldn’t let anything come between them—except for her. One of them became her best friend; the other, her fiancé.
She always knew she’d wind up marrying one of them, and Jacob Adams is the epitome of Mister Right. At least until he fails to show up for their wedding.
As Jacob’s best man, and identical twin, Matt makes a split-second decision that will affect the three of their lives forever—he steps in to take his brother’s place. In front of the altar, exchanging vows with the woman he’s secretly been in love with for years.
But Cora finds out about the groom swap. The morning after the wedding. As if realizing she just slept with her fiancé’s brother isn’t disturbing enough, she’s forced to confront the feelings for Matt Adams she thought she’d buried years ago.
Through the course of her real honeymoon with her fake husband, she uncovers truths both Adams brothers were hoping to keep hidden, for opposite reasons. One to protect himself, the other to protect her.
She married the wrong brother, but what if he’s been the right one all along?
Mister Wrong was an enjoyable read but it didn’t deliver quite the way I wanted it to. In a lot of ways, it was excellent. The writing was great, the dialogue and chemistry were great, but there’s one place, one major place for me, where it lost me – believability.
I know that it’s fiction. I know that. But we’re not talking science fiction or fantasy where I can easily suspend reality for the sake of the story. It’s contemporary romance and I need for it to be believable. Someone who’s known twin brothers for 20 years and grew up together, even though identical, would be able to tell them apart. At one point I couldn’t tell the Property Brothers apart, but it took me no more than 5 episodes and now the differences are blatantly obvious. You can’t make me believe that Cora would have no idea who she was marrying.
But let’s just assume for a minute that’s possible. What I find absolutely impossible is that the wrong twin could be at the wedding and the reception and not one family member, including their parents, notices.
I did my best to move past these things and just enjoy the story, and for the most part I could. Like I said, Williams’s writing and the chemistry were on point. It was an enjoyable read, one that I recommend if you’re in the mood for something light and a little sexy. But if you’re a Nicole Williams novice, I’d recommend starting with Collared, Hate Story, or Lost & Found.
