How tangled can a romantic web get?
When gruff mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George seeks sponsorship for his latest expedition, his London PA insists on a more media-friendly profile—like dating celebrity supermodel Zeb Z.
Zeb can’t make the date, so he asks his identical twin, Aidan, to stand in for just one evening. Aidan, a struggling playwright, shuns the limelight to the extent people don’t even know Zeb has a sibling, but he reluctantly agrees.
When the deception has to continue beyond the first date, Aidan fights to keep up the pretense. Dominic likes his sassy, intelligent companion, and Aidan starts falling for the forthright explorer. But how long can Aidan’s conscience cope as confusion abounds? Will coming clean as “the other twin” destroy the trust they’ve built?
This story was fun! It was also very sweet and predictable but left me feeling warm and fuzzy and full of happiness. I enjoyed this trope. It was very easy to see how things would turn out, but the author kept it just unique enough to surprise me with the ending. This story turned out to be very low angst and the huge misunderstanding was handled with sweetness and care rather than emotional turmoil and anger. I liked Dom and Aiden and their journey was a bit over the top but oh so romantic. This one definitely goes onto the comfort read pile.
Rusty Topsfield did an OK job on this narration. He really brought the story to life. However, I was very disappointed that he did not emphasize the fact that this novel was set in the UK and written by a UK author. There was no accent and it was read as if it was set in America with American characters. I gave this a 3 star because technically it was good, but it was not what I would have preferred.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
