Book Review – Mister Wrong by Nicole Williams

 This one was a crash and BURN for me!!!

Be aware of spoilers!

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?

Please be aware of spoilers. This is a rambling sort of review that might not make any sense whatsoever.

The premise of Mister Wrong sounded awesome. The execution not so much.

I’m speechless, conflicted, and still shaking my head.

Somehow there were a few aspects in this book that rubbed me the WRONG way!! And I want to emphasize that this was a personal issue  – maybe I had a BAD day.

I don’t really know. 

All I know is that there were a few turns that didn’t make any sense to me, unfortunately the feeling was so powerful that it pretty much ruined the entire reading experience.

Again, the issue was personal and not necessarily will be an issue with anyone else. 

Our heroine Cora was in a ten year relationship with Jacob starting in high-school when she finally at the age of twenty-seven they got married to him. Unfortunately for her, the groom was MIA, but apparently had been seen with a other women the night before – YIKES.

His identical twin brother Matt, the GOOD guy who had been in love with her ever since they were teenagers, jumped in and saved the day by pretending to be Jacob.

Nobody knew he was not the groom, not his father, Cora – his brother’s fiancee, or anyone else. I understood that they were identical twins, but please!!

After the wedding night – which was consummated without the bride knowing that the guy she was sleeping with was NOT her husband – Cora finally found Matt’s ID and started asking questions – FINALLY!!!

At that point they were already on their honeymoon, Cora and Jacob’s honeymoon, which happened to be on an island that had been issued a storm warning shortly after their arrival, that pretty much forced Cora and Matt to talk it out.

BUT – wait for it – they barely had time to get to the bottom of the issue when Jacob arrived.

Apparently the storm warning did not hinder Jacob’s flight to land and of course he caught them in the act – YAY!!!

So, Cora decided to have an honest one-on-one with a finally sober Jacob while going hiking – and yes, she decided to go hiking during a tropical storm  – it’s just wind – figures!

And believe it or not after being with a guy for 10 years, she decided within a couple of days – the whole spectacle only lasted a few days – that the guy she thought she loved for a decade was not the right guy, but his twin brother was.

I get it, Jacob didn’t sound like someone I would want to be married to either – but GIRL – I would not have stayed with him for 10 years in the first place.

As you might have noticed while reading this rambling review of mine, I was quite conflicted with this book. Too many aspects seemed to be far-fetched and made no sense to me at all. (I’m a very logical and pragmatic kind a woman. :D)

Maybe I had a bad day, maybe I was just not in the mood for this book, whatever the reason was, this book was clearly not the right one for me. I apologize if I offended anybody, but this is how I felt.

  1. I love rambling reviews, Corina. They’re the best <3
    And I totally agree with you about the change of heart. 10 years with a guy, you're about to marry him, and in a couple days you decide your Prince Charming is his twin brother?!?!?! Okay it's called fiction, but please!
    And also, what a brother, sleeping with his twin's fiancée without her knowing (other super unrealistic thing).

    1. Oh, now that I think of it, I read a book which was quite similar to this one, but way better executed. I really liked it. It was “Withering Hope” by Layla Hagen. Have you read it? It’s about a chick who is about to get married, but her plane (without the groom on board) crashes and she and the pilot need to survive in the Amazonian rainforest. Still, in this book it takes them months to get closer and to develop feelings. It was really realistic and sweet. The epilogue was one of the most unique I’d ever read, as it accompanied them until the moment of their deaths.

    2. Lol – you made me laugh!!! Thanks!! Needed that.;-) You can’t believe how much this book annoyed me. I wonder if I had just a bad day – it’s interesting how sometimes stuff just rubs me wrong. ;(

  2. You made me laugh so hard Corina!!!! I can see your very valid points even if it pains me as Nicole Williams is an author I love (but it can’t always be a hit). Well done buddy 😀

  3. I already know this book is going to be dramatic after reading the synopsis, but I plan to read it anyway. I know Nicole Williams can write good books, which is why I always get mad when she writes these type of books that end up being no good. -__-

    1. Lol – so true!! It was hard for me to even write this review. ;-( i can only hope the next one will be better. I understand that not every book can be awesome – but I want them to be.;-)

  4. I love it, BT!! I’m cracking up 😂. We can’t love them all and you pointed out some issues that may be hang ups for others. Great honest review!!
