“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?”
So after you read the description of the book, I want to change it. Because obviously Cora is main part of this, but I think this book is more Matt’s story. We get so much from his point of view, and this just endears you to him. I love Matt. Yeah he should have come clean very earlier on. But I can’t imagine loving someone for most of my life and watch that person date and marry my twin. Shame on him though, then again we wouldn’t have a book if he had told her right off the bat. I was curious how it was going to unfold with her realizing it was the wrong groom (this isn’t a spoiler, it says it in the description). I mean, let’s be honest, you took the place of your identical twin and the bride didn’t realize until the next day. Nothing good is going to come of this.
The second half of the book is really where we see the characters dynamics. We also get to see how much of a jerk Jacob is. I must say that I always enjoy Nicole William’s books. I liked this one better than her last book Hate Story. A note of warning for the reader, there is swearing and some sexual situations (but not a lot). We were given an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
