Nicole Williams delivers a fast-paced, gripping story that I’ve read in one sitting. She does a wonderful job blending the sweetness and sexiness in this story and making you think about what’s wrong and what’s right. Despite its premise, I found the story to be compelling, but if you are not a fan of cheating or love triangles, then this is not the book for you. First and foremost, I have to say that I’m not a fan of cheating in my books, so I was really surprised when I ended up enjoying this book as much as I did. Maybe because the cheating here, in some way, felt…RIGHT.
“Me. Matt Adams. The man who’d loved her for so long, I couldn’t remember a time when I hadn’t. Loving her had become a part of me. The defining part of me.”
Matt has always been in love with Cora and he had always hoped, that one day, she will have his name. And she will, very soon, but not in the way Matt has been hoping, because Cora will soon become his new sister-in-law. Matt has known Cora ever since Cora’s mother started working for his family. Cora has grown up right along Matt and his TWIN brother, Jacob. Matt’s father has even paid for Cora’s education over the years.
“He had it all. He had everything. He had her. And he treated it as though it were nothing. Like it was replaceable—a guarantee he could take for granted.”
On the wedding day, when Jacob doesn’t show up at his own wedding, Matt decides to step in and pretend to be Jacob. Matt knows how unforgivably wrong what he’s about to do is, but he has to do something. He doesn’t want Cora to be humiliated in front of five hundred people, so he hopes pretending to be his twin (for a short time) is the right thing to do.
Matt never expected to go on his twin brother’s honeymoon. He knows Cora will be devastated when she finds out the truth. He knows he will have to tell her sooner rather than later, but when Cora starts kissing him and starts treating him like her new husband, Matt can’t resist her. After all, Cora is the woman of his dreams.
Will Cora find out who her new husband really is? Will Matt confess how much he loves Cora? Will Jacob find out what his brother did behind his back?
“In the end, they say it’s the lies we tell that define us more than the truths we admit. I already knew that. The lie I’d been telling for years had been defining me for just as long.” – Cora
Nicole Williams’s newest release is truly captivating! I couldn’t put it down for one minute. From the start, I was dying to know how everything will progress between these characters, what will happen between the two brothers, who’s really “Mister Wrong” and who’s really “Mister Right”.
‘Mister Wrong’ is entertaining, filled with angst, emotion and also some drama as the story unfolds. I appreciated the fact the book is written in dual POV, which was very helpful at times. Cora’s POV was just okay for me, but, I have to say that I loved Matt’s, maybe because I enjoyed his character a little more than Cora’s.
The story-line is interesting and very addictive. With every single chapter I was more and more engrossed in these characters’ story. The two main characters are great, well-portrayed and pretty endearing. Matt is simply wonderful. He is sweet, caring, thoughtful and the way he loves Cora is simply heartwarming. His love is palpable from start to finish. The author did a great job with the romantic aspect here. Also the connection/chemistry between Matt and Cora is fantastically done.
If you are don’t mind cheating and love triangles and you are looking for something unique, entertaining and very steamy, don’t hesitate and try this awesome read!
➦I’ve only read a handful of romances that explored this whole “identical twin” theme going on in this book. One thing I’m sure of is that this one, by far, is the best I’ve read out of all of those.
➦The phrase “train wreck” has been used to describe this story by one of the other reviewers, and it’s true. It’s like watching a train wreck happen and being unable to look away for a second. The story is very angsty and well written, albeit very far-fetched. But that’s fiction, so let’s just
➦You have to realize that this book involves cheating and a woman torn between two men. Two identical twin brothers. What happens when a guy she’s supposed to marry never shows up to his own wedding and his brother pretends to be the groom instead?
➦That is, indeed, a good question. He does have reasons, people. I’m happy to report I didn’t roll my eyes once during the reading of this book and I guess I’ve bought whatever Nicole Williams was selling. lol So if you’re a fan of a little bit of rivalry, jealousy and a bunch of forbidden stuff then this is a book for you.
