SYNOPSIS

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?

Cora Matthews was my weakness. My addiction. Everything I wanted and everything I had to let go of.

Matt Adams has been in love with Cora Matthews from their early childhood years but he’s unfortunately always been classified as her best friend since his twin brother Jacob quickly snatched up the role as her boyfriend. It’s always been a sore spot for him as he has witnessed Jacob’s lack of respect for Cora over the years and knows in his heart he’s not the right man for her. The story opens up on the day of Jacob and Cora’s wedding. Jacob is nowhere to be found. The night before at his bachelor party, Jacob ended up getting hammered and was also spotted leaving with another woman. Matt is faced with a dilemma – does he tell Cora the truth and then she’s left being humiliated? Or he could pretend to be Jacob, and the wedding goes off as planned? I guess you could say he has a momentary lapse in judgment and goes ahead and stands in for his brother.

As the hours start to pass, it becomes clear that Jacob is not going to show up before their scheduled flight to their honeymoon destination. Even though his conscience is telling him to come clean with Cora, he ends up getting on that flight with her, and while he promises he’s going to tell her the truth once they arrive at the hotel, let’s just say his passion for Cora takes over and soon they both have the most intense sexual encounter of their lives. Unfortunately, the blissful evening will be overshadowed by Matt’s betrayal when Cora realizes who he is the next morning. And not only will they have to deal with the shock and betrayal, Jacob is on his way to the island and he’s got the nerve to be full of accusations for both Matt and Cora.

The story starts off with Matt’s POV, so we are not privy to what is going on in Cora’s mind until the moment she realizes that it was Matt that she married and shared her wedding night with. At this point, we find out that she has always loved Matt and that the only reason she was with Jacob was because he was the only brother who made his feelings known. She had always assumed that Matt wasn’t interested in her. But Matt kept his feelings hidden because his brother staked his claim before he got a chance to. We also learn that over the years Jacob has always been jealous of Matt and continuously accused Cora of having feelings for his brother. Their relationship definitely lacked trust and loving adoration.

Now Cora is left with her own dilemma as she must choose between the brothers. Knowing that Matt is in love with her has her reevaluating her relationship with Jacob and she can’t help but compare how much stronger her feelings are for Matt. Will she pick the right brother or continue to make poor decisions that not only impact her life, but the lives and relationship of the Adams brothers.

Nicole Williams is one of my favorite authors. She has written some truly fabulous books over the past several years. I would say this was definitely not my favorite by her. I had a really hard time with the fact that Matt deceived Cora and let her believe he was Jacob while he made love to her on her honeymoon night. I also couldn’t grasp how Cora didn’t realize right from the start it was Matt who she was marrying and off on her honeymoon with. She had known the two for years and had a really close relationship with the both of them. I also didn’t like the fact that she chose to be with Jacob because she thought that Matt would never reciprocate her feelings. Hard to really empathize with a heroine who uses a person as a consolation prize.
