I’m sorry, but with a title like He Belongs with Me doesn’t that just scream cat fight to you?
It sure does to me and it probably doesn’t help that the story behind this book is two twins who realize they may or may not be in love with the same guy.
My thoughts exactly.
Info on the book:
Maggie & Clara Ryder are identical twins who couldn’t be more different. Maggie was the golden girl. Daddy’s sweetheart with a prim and proper mentality, whereas Clara was the rebellious sister who has purple hair and a don’t mess with me attitude.
And then there’s Leo. Sexy, brooding, alcoholic, playboy, heir to his grandfather’s fortune & empire. Leo has always been Maggie’s best friend and Clara’s arch nemesis. However, everything changes when one night, a terrible date, tears & and a ‘high’ speed golf cart intertwine and Clara ends up realizing that maybe Leo isn’t entirely who she thought he was.
So begins the catalyst for events that will pit Maggie and Clara against each other in a war over who will win the guy’s heart. And what happens when another sexy stranger comes into town who seems all too familiar?
Things Not Found in the Synposis:
For this book I’m loving…
Yep, what can I say. This book has such a fun & upbeat read and therefore requires a fun, upbeat song.
“So come on make me feel alive.” la-la-la…
Yeah, I’m not so good of a singer, as you can probably tell even by reading it on the internet. Rest assured I’ll stick with blogging.
Overall Rating: 4 Stars ****-
Let me explain first off that I had the wonderful opportunity to beta-read this book and now it’s being PUBLISHED!!! EEEP! I’m so excited for Sarah Darlington!
Anyways, I really enjoyed this book. It was so light and the tension between the characters was a lot of fun. I found myself siding with one of the twins though and therefore got all defensive when it came to the other one.
Keep your hands off b*tch he’s mine!
I guess one can say I fell into the trap of the title LOL.
Anyways, this book has got a wicked love triangle/square that leaves you laughing, frustrated, breathless and flushed (because not only is there one sexy hero, but two! TWO!). Both Maggie and Clara have their strengths and weakness as characters and reading both perspectives was great since you got to know them as people instead of just characters. You learnt about their motivations, flaws and driving forces. Sarah did a wonderful job at creating two protagonists who were twins, yet had such distinct voices you could tell who was talking without being told.
Love interests: Dean & Leo.
Dean was great. I think he truly meant well with everything that happened and I felt bad for him at times, because I thought he deserved better than what he was getting. Anyways, I’m really really with how things turned out for him.
Leo… oh Leo. What a … sweetheart. Wait. Did I just say ‘sweetheart’ when in the synopsis it sounded like he was an alcoholic douchebag? Yes, yes I did. To find out what I’m talking about… well you’ll have to read it.
So buckle up readers and get ready for a ride that’ll get you riled up with drama, catfights and a whole lot sexiness.
