Two Wrongs Make A Right by Chloe Liese

Genres: Contemporary Romance
Jamie and Bea have nothing in common when they’re thrown together at a party. But Bea’s sister and Jamie’s best friend think otherwise and trick them into a setup. Furious that they were tricked, Jamie and Bea decide to have their revenge. They craft an elaborate scheme to fake date and convince their matchmakers that they are madly in love, only to crush their dreams once they swiftly break up. The two think they’ve found the perfect revenge plot, only to realize that the meddlers are on to something.
Two Wrongs Make a Right is told alternating first-person perspectives between Jamie and Bea. I listened to the audiobook version and found both narrators were perfectly cast for both leads. I loved getting to hear each of their perspectives, especially when it came to their own issues and insecurities.
Bea is a neurodivergent artist. She is smart and sharp-tongued. Her last partner was incredibly toxic and ever since she’s been hesitant to fall in love again. She has the absolute cutest hedgehog. He might be my favorite character.
Jamie is a pediatrician. He suffers from anxiety and that plays a significant role in his life. He’s incredibly strait-laced and orderly and has the sweetest cat.
One of the things I loved most about this story is that you can feel just how perfect the two main characters are for each other. They have a deep understanding and respect for each other, including things that others have criticized in the past. They are deeply honest with each other and love each other because of who they are, not in spite of them.
I highly recommend Two Wrongs Make A Right to anyone that loves a romance with banter and mental health representation.
Thank you to @berkleyromance and @prhaudio for the advanced listening copy. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis from Goodreads
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?
