TL;DR: A very cute, low angst romance about to neurodivergent people. If it at all sounds appealing to you, you’re going to love it.
Two Wrongs Make a Right by Chloe Liese has taken a simple romance formula and made it welcoming in a way I didn’t expect. This takes the story of Much Ado About Nothing and twists it into something, that while I feel like is low-angst, also has an interesting conflict and a sweet, sweet story.
The two main characters of this story. Bea is an artist suffering from artist block due to some past trauma and unresolved issues. She is also autistic but makes no apologies for herself, being honest and open in communication. It was absolutely delightful to read from Bea’s both prickly but loving perspective, something I could really relate with. Jamie is the straightest laced pediatrician I’ve ever seen but he was absolutely attentive and adorable. His sweetness nearly bled off the page. I have a real soft spot for cinnamon roll type heroes and Jamie fit that too a T.
The final third act conflict was more of an external one, and I do want to add in here that some readers may want to be aware of the content warning for emotional abuse that occurs, not directly too our characters but very close to them. It was a little bit of a shock to me, and had I not been in a good mind set it might have been triggering. As it was it did make for a riveting conflict, I was anxious to find out how it resolved.
My only real complaint with the book is that it perhaps follows the traditional formula too close to the letter. I am afraid it’s not going to be something I remember in the future, but it is one I would happily return to. I enjoyed the care that both characters took with each other and I also enjoyed the relationship between Bea and her sister. I will definitely pick up more, especially if either of Bea’s sister’s get books (I’m dying to know about Christopher).
