I’ve always loved an Adele Parks novel, and so when I saw this advertised for 99p on Amazon, I swooped in for a quick buy and began reading it that night.
Nick is a womaniser, a love-’em-and-leave-’em type who uses dating sites for an easy conquest. Anna is a fragile beauty, kind and homely, looking for her next big love. They meet online and arrange a date, both with very different agendas in mind, but things go extremely well. Without expecting to, Nick finds himself falling into a cosy whirlwind romance with her, and before he knows it, he has proposed, surprising himself and those closest to him.
But Nick has reckoned without Anna’s twin sister, Zoe.
Zoe is the opposite of her soft-hearted and vanilla sister. Hard-drinking, sultry and determined, Zoe doesn’t care about anything, apart from her twin sister. Until she meets Nick.
There is a delicious twist in this tale, which I clocked on to quite early in the story, but it certainly didn’t ruin it for me. It kept me engrossed right up until the end, which I have to admit was a bit of an anti-climax. However, up until then, I couldn’t put it down!
I’ve given it 4 stars on Goodreads. The lacklustre ending did make me consider a mark down, but the rest of the book was so entertaining that it definitely deserved all 4 stars.
