Summary

From New York Times best seller Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new romance novel about a runaway bride, a single dad who's sworn off love, and the kind of family secrets that can threaten to break even the deepest bonds.

You never forget your wedding day. Or the moment your twin sister pukes on your bouquet and confesses she's pregnant...with your fiance's baby.

I wanted to get away, to hide until my heart mended. I found myself in a strange town with a mysterious stranger whose talented mouth and hands almost made me forget it was supposed to be my wedding night.

Afraid to go home to face my broken life, I pretend to be my twin so I can take her job in Jackson Harbor caring for a six-year-old girl. Imagine my surprise when I find out my new boss is my mysterious stranger - Dr. Ethan Jackson.

I never meant for Ethan to discover my secrets. I never meant for them to matter. But the longer I work with him and his sweet daughter, the harder I fall and the clearer it becomes that I'm not the only one carrying a secret that could tear us apart.

The Runaway Bride Meets The Closed Off Doctor

Nicole faces a huge betrayal and leaves her home in Alabama for a chance to start over in Jackson Harbor Michigan. She gets a job as a nanny but when the man she is working for turns out to be the sexy doctor she met at the bar the night before things get interesting.

The narration is awesome.

This could have been a 5 star but the end felt a little rushed.

It was Alright

I found this book just alright. I didn't really get invested in any of the characters. I felt bad for Nic in places but she was too much of a push over. She forgave her sister way too fast for what she did. She forgave Ethan to fast for things that he said and she wouldn't even stand up for herself really. I understand that Ethan had a hard time with his marriage and the death of his wife but I just didn't really find that a good reason to treat Nic the way he did.
I did find the brothers funny though and Teagan was the best.
For the most part, I found this book a little too long. It got a little boring at times but I did finish it so I guess that matters.

Great book, awesome reader!

The book had a great storyline and was interesting (in a good way.) the person reading the book us a nice, understandable voice and reads with a lot of inflection.

I highly recommend this book.... unless you’re uncomfortable to hear a little bit of vulgarity.

Finding love just when you’ve sworn off

Imagine finding out that your identical twin is pregnant with your fiancé’s baby when you’re at the altar. This is what happens to Nicole. Heartbroken and betrayed, and having her twins’s purse, Nicole flies to Michigan where her sister was supposed to be taking a job. On the night that should have been her wedding night, Nicole is drowning her sorrows at a bar when she encounters a hot guy. They make it to her hotel room and fool around but then he has to leave for work. The next morning, she meets an old friend who had arranged for a job for her twin. Nic decides to meet with the lady and tell her the truth...that her sister is no longer available to accept the nanny position for her granddaughter. However, the woman convinces Nic to trade places with her sister...after all, it’ll only be for 3 months.
Obstetrician, widower and single dad, Ethan Jackson, has been mourning his wife for 3yrs now, and has relied heavily on his mother for childcare for his 5yo daughter. With his mom taking a prolonged trip to Europe, he needs a live in nanny. He has willingly allowed his mom handle interviewing and hiring the nanny. Imagine his surprise when the new nanny is none other than the woman from the bar. The chemistry between the pair is sizzling but there are so many secrets between them...we just know this is going to end badly.
I really enjoyed this story and appreciated the delicate way that the author brought attention to depression. This series is off to a great start and I am looking forward to finding out more about the Jackson family.

Great story! Amazing Narration!

This is a great runaway bride and single dad story. Ethan and Nicole are both great characters. Nicole is a lovely woman, caring, fragile, and resilient. Ethan is handsome, understanding, and caring. His past is heartbreaking. His daughter, Lilly, is so cute! This story has a great cast of characters. They have an important part in this story, and I can't wait to know more about them. Ethan's mother, Kathleen, is a beautiful and strong character, supportive and caring. Veronica, Nicole's twin sister is selfish, unlikable, and self centered. I love the family spirit in the Jackson Family (Ethan's family). I like how the author writes about depression with compassion, and knowledge, without judgement. I love the ending. Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne did an amazing job with the narration. Looking forward to listen to the other books in this Series.

My Thoughts on The Wrong Kind of Love

I'm not sure what I loved more about this story.

Ethan aka Dr. McBroody Pants, our leading man, who was struggling with the loss of his wife a few years ago and due to his mom's impending trip, is in need of a nanny. He's a dedicated doctor, a loving father, an adoring brother, and a caring son. Even in his moody, broody moments, he's still amazing.

Nicole aka Nic, our leading lady, is very often described as "the good twin" and I could see why with everything I read about her and the more I felt I got to know her. The title was well deserved and my heart broke for all of the times she seemed to put herself out there for those she cared about and how often she seems to have been hurt for her trouble. But her heart was so big and she couldn't seem to help being a good person.

Then there was the whole Jackson clan, Ethan's family. They're one of those types of families I love where they're always in each others business but it comes from a good place. They all love each other and it's clear in the ribbing and riling. In the fighting and fussing. And in the laughter and love. This is the kind of family I myself would want to be a part of.

Friends and other family of the main characters also contributed greatly to this being such an amazing story. Teagan and Ava and even Veronica all played big parts in their own ways to making this story what it was. I loved everthing I just mentioned and I cannot wait to read the rest of this series and hopefully get to see all of these amazing characters find their happiness.

The narration for this one was pretty good. Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne are both newer to me, but they both gave enjoyable performances. Tyler has a gentler kind of voice that was very relaxing. Summer had a really good southern accent and had a sort of passion in the appropriate moments that made her voice likable.

Wonderful Story & Narration🎧 Enjoyable & Heartfelt

I loved this book, it grabbed my attention right from the start and held straight to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed Lexi Ryan’s wonderful writing style as well as the interesting storylines and characters she created. Her characters are complex and well developed, they are realistic and easy to relate to. I adored the female lead, Nicole aka Nic. she is kindhearted, always looking to do the right thing for others even if it was not in her own best interest including taking the job that was intended for her sister. Ethan Jackson is a single dad, he has not been interested in getting into a relationship since his wife died. HIs priority is his daughter Lilly. His mother, Kathleen usually watched Lilly when Ethan, a OBGYN doctor got called out. Needing to go on a trip she hired a live in nanny to watch Lilly, she asked Lilly to fill in for her sister, Veronica and not say anything to Ethan, she had her reasons for this. The night Nicole arrived in town she went to Jackson’s Brews to drink. She catches Ethan eye and there is something about her that attracts her to him. He winds up walking her back to her hotel, had a few intimate moments before he gets called in for work. The next day he is in for a big surprise when he meets the new Nanny hired to help with his daughter. He assumes the worst about her but he tells her she can stay until he finds a replacement. I loved how everything played out, the book was well plotted, the story had a natural flow with plenty of drama, some angst, plenty of heartfelt moments and a slow burn to a wonderful romance. I loved the chemistry between them, also loved how Nic was with Lilly. Have to give a shout out to the girls and the nickname Dr. McBroody, too funny. Awesome secondary characters and family dynamics, can not help but love those Jacksons, I am looking forward to what comes next in this series. Lexi Ryan, thank you for this wonderful story and the emotional rollercoaster ride. Also thank you for your heartfelt authors note.

I listened to the Audible edition, Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne are terrific narrators and voice artists. They bring these characters to life giving each their own voice and personality. Their portrayal of the characters was spot on, they did a great job projecting the characters emotions & attitude into their performance as well as the drama of the story. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

Finding love after betrayal

I enjoyed listening to this story. This is the first story I've ever read from this author and I plan on reading more from this author.

Nic finds out that her sister and fiance have had an affair and she leaves to find herself. She goes to take over her sister's job (her sister, out of guilt for cheating, decided to try to leave the area to prevent herself from falling for her sister's fiance but STILL had an affair with him (yuck and unforgivable))

Nic meets Ethan that night she leaves and she has one night of passion and then finds out he's her new boss. Generally not a new trope but Nic has to keep up the ruse because Ethan's mom is sick and asked her to keep up the lies so she could go get medical help without anyone knowing. I'm not sure that this was necessary but I suspended disbelief. I didn't like Ethan much because he was really mean until towards the last 3/4 of the book. But given his history, I get why he was hesitant. Nic also had issues, including depression but I really liked her character (sweet, sunny and just overall sweet). I liked the supporting cast, including Ethan's siblings and i'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I thought Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne did a good job with the narration. Tyler didn't differentiate his voice as much and sometimes I felt a little confused about who was speaking. However, overall, they got into the characters and I enjoyed their narration.
