After reading the five books in the Bergman Brothers series that are available, I got really excited about Chloe Liese’s next book – Two Wrongs Make a Right. Fake dating and enemies to lovers sounded like two things I really needed in my life, haha. I have to say it didn’t disappoint! Keep on reading to find out more about this book and what I thought!
A big thank you to Berkley for providing me with an e-arc to read and review.
Opposites become allies to fool their matchmaking friends in this swoony reimagining of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy, Much Ado About Nothing.
Jamie Westenberg and Bea Wilmot have nothing in common except a meet-disaster and the mutual understanding that they couldn’t be more wrong for each other. But when the people closest to them play Cupid and trick them into going on a date, Jamie and Bea realize they have something else in common after all—an undeniable need for revenge.
Soon their plan is in place: Fake date obnoxiously and convince the meddlers they’re madly in love. Then, break up spectacularly and dash their hopes, putting an end to the matchmaking madness once and for all.
To convince everyone that they’ve fallen for each other, Jamie and Bea will have to nail the performance of their lives. But as their final act nears and playing lovers becomes easier than not, they begin to wonder, what if Cupid’s arrow wasn’t so off the mark? And what if two wrongs do make a right?
In all honesty, I loved Two Wrongs and a Right so much I don’t think a review I write will ever do it justice. This book had me laughing out loud and hit me in all the feels. Chloe Liese is definitely becoming an author on my auto-buy/read list. There were so many details in this book that made it great.
Jamie and Bea didn’t have a meet cute or fall in love instantly and I loved that about this book. They’re different in so many ways and not everything is easy for them. Bea is neurodivergent and Jamie deals with anxiety. What I loved about this is that they truly talked about what this meant for both of them. Neither of them assumed things and I loved this aspect of the book. Their friendship felt realistic as well as them developing feelings for each other.
Two Wrongs Make a Right has a fun take on fake dating. They pretend to date to make their friends think they were right for setting them up and hope to end the matchmaking by breaking up a bit later. This definitely goes unexpectedly. It was so much fun watching them go on dates and pretend to be in love, because you slowly notice them getting close and really enjoying each other’s company.
I did not want this book to end and I was actually sad when I had finished the last page. Two Wrongs Make a Right is definitely a book I’ll be rereading in the future!
Bea and Jamie have both stolen part of my heart. This is a book I definitely see myself reading again. Have you had any recent favorites? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
