Every girl dreams about her boyfriend going down on bended knee and asking her the big question, but we all know that sometimes the feeling is not mutual and most woman back out while waiting for the marriage proposal she knows will never come.
But what if you find yourself in the situation of not wanting the proposal but it comes away and then you are stuck. Do you say yes just because there is a entire room full of people watching or do you say no in order to stay true to yourself?
For Victoria this is the case in this read, her boyfriend Oliver pops the big question and she needs to give a answer. She chooses to say no, for her feelings of happy ever after are overshadowed by her feelings of lust for Oliver's best friend Liam.
She and Liam take off together, but their relationship encounters hurdles that prove too high to overcome and the relationship falls flat. Five years later however Liam is back and Victoria's feelings from before bubble over the top with double the intensity from before.
Making it work this time around however does not seem possible, but as the saying goes, if you love someone set them free and if it is meant to be you will find yourself back in their arms and never wanting to leave. This message shone through as bright as a glittering diamond in this read and I could not stop myself from reading to see the happiness Liam and Victoria find.
The main characters of Liam and Victoria were both well written and intriguing from start to finish. I loved that Victoria becomes stronger as the years go by. She becomes the type of woman we all want to be, she stands up and fights for what she wants, the author showed that with the right push one can definitely grow and when looking in the mirror you will find there is the person you are truly meant to be.
Liam was a gorgeous hero, a badboy for sure , as who runs off with his best friends girl and does not get called a badboy. But this made him the kind of hero we all secretly crave. I am sure most woman will agree when faced with the perfect dedicated always secure man to spend your life with vs a badboy that will show you the world even when he has nothing is far more exciting as that is the kind of love every woman wants, the as long as we have each other everything will be fine kind of love, every woman will chose the badboy if she stays true to her heart.
I loved that Liam works so very hard, pushing himself to the limits to ensure his life is better than before. To me it showed him as the badboy at heart but also the hard-working make it or break it man, that wants to ensure life is fun but also stable, perfect balance.
The backdrop settings and dialogue was sexy and fun, very entertaining. I am recommending this read for lovers of Natalie Anderson books, as the author has once again shown she pours her heart and soul into her stories, giving us the what if's instances that are associated with every day life, whilst keeping the romance and passion scorching hot!
4.5 star review
"Her head tells her he is Mr. Wrong but her heart tells her he is Mr. Right"
'The Right Mr Wrong', or Mills & Boon 'Sliding Doors'-style
I’m about to give away a massive spoiler:
She says yes.
And she says no.
Before I get regaled with emails bewailing this horrific betrayal of my readers’ trust, I’d like to point out that it’s alright – that’s the whole point of The Right Mr Wrong. Actually, I’m really rather enamoured of the concept of a Mills & Boon version of Sliding Doors.
We spend so much time post-break ups reassuring each other that ‘if it was meant to be, it would have happened’ that it’s actually refreshing to look at a novel that considers this. Is Victoria fated to be with Liam? Therefore, in the long run, does her answer to Oliver even matter – life will play out the way it’s meant to.
But big existential debates aside, I really like it. I like the fact that both Victorias – the softer artistic Victoria and the more sassy, uber-organised Vivi – have a depth to their characters that means that the short prologue is all the preamble needed as an introduction. They have the independence that they lacked the first time round, making it easy for us to identify with them as we see echoes of our own career struggles mirrored in theirs.
And as for Liam Wilson…well let’s just say that he is broodily handsome enough to make Victoria swoon and me fan myself with my copy of the novel on an airplane crammed with crying babies and grumpily greying businessmen.
