I really liked this book but I am sorry I didn't fall in love with it. This was a rather sweet read in the end from Nicole Williams but just a couple of things niggled at me. There's a lot of angsty parts in this book which keep the story line from becoming too monotonous. Initially I wasn't enjoying the story and wanted to slap a couple of characters but it definitely picked up by the halfway mark. I loved Matt immensely, he was sweet and caring but wanted to punch Jacob and then tell Cora to grow up a little. I just think she could have had a little more backbone in her so she could open her eyes and see what was in front of her. I would liked to have seen an epilogue based on what happened when they got home although the ending was satisfying enough. Nicole has the knack to keep a reader invested in the story right until the very end and always comes up with an original plot line which is one of the things I love in a good author. I have loved the majority of her books so I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

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?
