Allison Leamon menyadari bahwa berpura-pura menjadi sosok saudara kembar identiknya adalah ide yang buruk. Meski secara fisik ia dan saudara kembarnya sangat mirip, mereka sangat bertolak belakang. Bagaimana mungkin seorang ilmuwan jenius yang pendiam sepertinya mampu menyakinkan orang lain bahwa dirinya adalah Annie yang berpembawaan ceria dan supel? Tantangan pertama pen ...more

I liked this book and I couldn't put it down. But I honestly have to say I was almost repelled by Spencer initially. I mean ugh! Even if you are strongly attracted to your best friend's fiancee', that doesn't mean you have a right to pursue that and wreck his engagement because you feel like you have a stronger bond with the woman than your friend. He didn't respect boundaries at all. Keep your octopus hands to yourself dude! I think his insistence on honesty came out of a sense of self-indulgen ...more

3.5.

Allison Leamon knew that pretending to be her identical twin sister was a bad idea. For although the two redheads looked exactly alike, they couldn’t be more different. How could a no-nonsense scientist like Allison possibly fool anyone into thinking that she was the bubbly, vivacious Annie?

Yes it was cheesy, yes it was corny, yes it was dated, yes it was goofy. I liked it.

"And the red hair?
"Our Irish grandfather."

The idea of identical twins pretending to be each other in Ms. Brown’s RS The Switch was written so much better than this older book, which has the silliest story line I have come across. Not to mention I ended up laughing to tears at why the hero was so super rich. (view spoiler) ...more

Silly little romance book, very pat story line, kind if ridiculous. On the other hand, it was kind of cute, very sweet/simple, nothing to hurt the brain (if the story line didn't make you spit), and it had a sex scene or two that was fun fantasy material. Nothing great here, just silly.

OK, spoilers below, but here's my rendition of the book:

Twin 1: Ooh, pretend to be me for a few days.
Twin 2: No. Oh, OK.
Fiance: Darling!
Fiance's handsome buddy: You don't even love him. Make love to me.
Twin 2: Hel

Although written by SB, this is not one of her gritty romantic suspence stories but a slushy Harlequin style romance. It was ok but I wouldn't have recognised or hazarded a guess that SB wrote it if hadn't already known!

Nice and easy read but not one I would rush to experience again.

Typical identical twin swap/mistaken identity story.

Alison, "the brains," is the stereotypical brainiac (complete with glasses and wears hair in a bun) and Ann, though they are identical in appearance, is considered "the beauty" and the social butterfly.

Ann wants to surprise her fiance, Davis, with a boob job and enlists the help of her identical twin sister, Alison, to pose as her for a few days while she has the surgery. Begrudgingly, Alison is forced to trade in her glasses, bun, lab coat an

This is a story about identical twins. Alison, "the brains," is the super intelligent scientist sister and Ann is considered the beauty and the sociable sister. Ann wants to surprise her fiance, Davis, with a boob job and asks Alison, to pose as her for a few days while she has the surgery. Spencer, the groom's best friend and best-man is instantly smitten with Alison/Ann. Alison is falling for him too and things become too complicated cause she can't reveal her real identity.

Sweet funny read w

Goofy book about twins trading places. Pretty unbelievable but if you squint and hold your tongue right it was enjoyable. The hero was not to be believed and wasn't a really noble guy. The heroine was pretty fun when she finally came clean about the deception. Don't take anything too seriously even the plot or writing and it wasn't too bad to while away an hour or two.

I liked this book and I couldn't put it down. Honestly (if I was a twin) I would not want to swap/be my twin for one day let alone one week... I mean having to be yourself at your job and then get off work and be someone else... sorry I woulda told twin sister that she needs to just tell her Fiance she is sick or come up with some excuse why she can't see him for a week. But I guess that is just me but I really enjoyed this story. It was a fun read.

This is probably the worst thing I've read by Sandra Brown. What a stupid love story! The heroine was a scientist so brilliant but a complete twit. And the hero was such an ass I couldn't figure what Allison even saw in him. Terrible book.

For the review...well it's a very interesting topic, and really has humor giving the fact that it's actually a romantic book! As for what i've learned? It's never too late or too soon to meet the right person, even if the circumstances might seem odd!

I love all of Sandra Brown's books. This one was a love story only - no mystery.

First book I ever read of hers. No author has brought the romance genre to life like Sandra Brown. It's real, not fantasy like most books. You can relate to it and find yourself in the characters.

Dear lord, what did I just read?!
Thursday's Child has a ridiculous plot where basically everything and I mean everything leads to sex.
After a while I started skipping the lovemaking where bodies 'fit together like jigsaw pieces' just to see what happens in the end.
Guess what i found?

GRRR!

MORE sex.

Ridiculous plot - who believes her fiancé will not know her from her twin sister? And who wants a fiancé who cannot tell them apart? How could she leave her sister to impersonate herself in an intimate relationship? Did she think they would never kiss or that he would not want to stay the night if he cannot tell them apart? So she can surprise the fiancé with new breasts?
It gets worse every time I think about it.

I thought this book was pretty funny in it's own way, but of course dated as it was written with the early 80's style. I honestly don't think I would ever trade laces with a twin so she could get her boobs done and act like I was in love with my soon to be brother-in-law. I enjoyed this book and would reconmend it for a quick read.
Lisa
This was a pretty ridiculous book. The whole premise was ludicrous, the charade went on far too long and none of the people involved had believable reactions. There were also so many bad 80’s movie/book tropes and stereotypes that it started to feel like the author was going for some kind of record. We’ve got the twins switching places, the dorky scientist who wears big glasses and can’t interact with normal people, the awkward quiet girl who turns into a smoking hot beauty queen just by letting ...more

Allison and Spencer. Allison is a twin to her sister, Ann who had a breast implant surgery as surprise and asked Allison to act as if she is Ann and hang out with Ann's fiance, Davis for several days. Allison who is a lab scientist and opposite of Ann in personalities opposed to the idea but she gave in.

The first day Allison was introduced to Davis' best friend, Spencer as Ann/fiance of Davis, and they felt something for each other. Spencer is not happy that he was feeling something for his best

Jadi dia maksa si Alison buat gantiin dia supaya Davis gak tau kalo dia operasi.. Awalnya sih enjoy2 aja. Tp kok lama2 makin gmn gt. Gak suka banget Alison mau aja dicium2 gt ama tunangan k ...more
