“He’s paying you two thousand dollars to do what?” Kimberly Turner tapped her cell phone to make sure the connection was solid, then pressed the phone back to her ear. What had her identical twin gotten herself into this time?
Marci’s soft laughter echoed over the line. “To be his fiancee for the weekend. But Kim, something’s come up andI need you to switch. Go pack.”
This is the third book I’ve read of this author, and with each book, she doesn’t disappoint. I’ve loved each and every one of them. This book is the first of two.
Kimberly and Marci are identical twins. Kimberly is the practical, kind-hearted, stay-in-with-a-good-book kind of girl while her sister, Marci, is the party type, the one with the tattoo and belly-button ring. Marci works as a waitress in a restaurant where she wears skimpy outfits and flirts with all the guys. Kimberly would never do that.
So “playing” the part of a fiancee to someone she’s never met is a very far stretch for Kimberly.
Austin is a hard-working, workaholic, an architect by trade. He’s not into the long term relationship thing…that’s why he chose Marci to go with him to play his fiancee for his family. He figured he could announce their engagement to his family, then when they got home, he could take back the ring he bought her and give her the money. No strings attached.
What he doesn’t expect is to fall in love with who he thinks is Marci in just one weekend.
What happens when they get back home? The lies have snow-balled over the weekend, and now, it just seems they’re getting worse. Will Austin forgive Kimberly and Marci for lying to him, even though he lied to his own parents? You’ll have to read this one to find out.
I love the style in which this author writes. She shows both character’s angst over ill-perceived ideas/thoughts. Both are thinking the same thing, yet both are afraid to shout out their feelings to the other. The sexual tension was paramount and the sex scenes were just right.
