Hayley Lawson had no chance of getting a date to prom. Thanks to a rumor gone wrong, the boys at school were all convinced she was only interested in dating college guys. She certainly wasn’t holding her breath waiting for someone to ask her to the big dance.
But, when her long-time crush returns to town, Hayley’s hopes of landing her dream date suddenly reignite. Owen Beck was everything she ever wanted in a guy, but after years of waiting, she couldn’t rely on fate alone to bring them together. If she wanted to go to prom with him, she was going to have to put her heart on the line and ask him herself. Her promposal doesn’t exactly go to plan though, and when Owen’s twin swoops in to ‘save’ her, she ends up in the arms of the wrong brother.
She might still have a chance with Owen though. Ethan knows his brother better than anyone, and he seems to think a bit of good old fashioned jealousy might just get Owen to ask Hayley to the prom himself.
A few weeks faking a relationship shouldn’t be too hard. After all, Ethan is nothing compared to Owen. Right?

What a great book! This is the third book of The Wrong Match series so I figured I would like it, but I didn’t expect to like it so much!
I’m always a sucker for a fake relationship turn real, but this one felt different than many others that I’ve read. Moody did a brilliant job of stringing out the relationship to make the ending so much sweeter. There were so many times when I wanted to yell, “Tell each other how you feel already.” It was frustrating in the absolute best way.
As in the second book, we got a little cameo of a lot of the characters from the first and second books. It always makes me smile when I see familiar characters and get a little reassurance that their relationships are still going great.
I loved getting to know Hayley and Ethan. Hayley is very loud and bold while Ethan was more reserved around people. However, my favorite moments were seeing Ethan with his band, doing what he loved. I didn’t know I had a thing for guys in bands until I read this book. This book has me seriously considering hitting up local venues to watch small-time bands. Anyone else in?
There were a couple of parts of this book that I felt like needed more of a resolve, like Hayley’s relationship with her sister, but that didn’t deter me from loving this book.
If you haven’t read the first two books, I’d recommend reading them before reading this one. It isn’t necessary since they’re all from different POVs and about different relationships, but it’ll make the experience that much sweeter. The first is The Wrong Bachelor and the second is The Wrong Costar.
