TC Matson's writing was surprisingly impressive for a debut novel. Her ability to draw you into a scene and cause you to lose yourself was fabulous. I felt alongside the characters as each scene unfolded. This book centered on Sam and an issue that wouldn’t go away. I can't say I there was a part I didn’t like but there were a couple of difficult but necessary scenes that were hard to read. The way it ended made those parts earlier to swallow.

Sam was cute and feisty. She knew who she was and did

Just finished this last night! What an excellent debut novel! TC does a great job of making her characters so realistic and believable. I liked being in Sam's head and knowing what she was thinking, even though I disagreed with her a couple times. I mean, I SO would've boned the dude right on the boardroom table, but whatever ;)

TC also knows how to build suspense. I was questioning everyone and their damn dog, wondering who in the hell was sending the messages to Sam.

And then there's Tanner. Oh

This book could get more stars if Logan was tortured and beaten badly before he went to jail.

But it was nice

I was gifted an ARC by TC to leave an honest review... ( I hope I do this book justice)

Wow!!! For being her breakout debut novel, she has done an amazing job.. I see N.Y. Times Best Seller in TC's future.. Want to read a book with a strong hero as well as a strong heroine, but also holds tragic real life events? Then this is the book for you..

Sam has had a horrific childhood, so immediately you would assume she is some whiney tragic ( train wreck) heroine, but she's actually not one that you wo

What a wonderful first novel by T. C. Matson! The characters are likeable and well written.

Although, she is not really looking but her friend is also trying to get her back out in the world. She is on an elevator and she sees a beautiful man, he knows she is new and welcomes her to the company. Who is he? (First mystery). The

This novel is garnering a lot of four and five star ratings and that's great, but it just wasn't working for me. I kept reading until I got to chapter 15 when I finally gave in and chucked it. Talk about a novel that just couldn't hold my interest. Not to mention a heroine that that just irritated the crap out of me. Am I the only one who found her immature? Overall tone of the novel was boring and predictable.

Matson - Mistaken IdenityI went into Mistaken Identity with a bit of hesitation. The author, TC Matson has become a good friend. She is genuinely one of the nicest people I know. So why was I worried about her book? Well, what if it sucked? I didn’t want to have to tell my friend that I didn’t like it.
Thank God it was good. It isn’t perfect. It’s her first book, so it would have been odd if it had been, but for a first book, it was really good. It’s a romantic suspense and I r

This is the first book from TC Matson and I have to say Bravo!!!

This book has everything you want, romance,heartache,sex,suspense and OMG moments. I fell in love with the characters, Samantha-our heroine, Jess-her best friend and Tanner-Mr. Eye Candy right from the start. The plotline of this story grabbed me and once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Just when you think you have it figured out TC Matson throws you a few curves and it grabs you all over again.

Spoiler Alert!

This is one of the best debut books I have read so far. This book kept me glued to my seat. In the back of my mind I did suspect Logan from the beginning.

The emotions that she went through when Logan turned up in her room and did all those horrific things to her felt so real to me. It broke my heart, because everyone felt so much guilt over what happened. But this book also has a positive message. No matter how bad the things that happened you can get through them and live a happy

This book surprised me in so many ways! I've read all of T.C. Matson's books and this one had such a different feel and I absolutely loved it.

Samantha Beckman hasn't had the easiest childhood, but with the help of her best friend she's turned things around and is starting a new job and has a new outlook on life. And it doesn't hurt that she keeps running into Mr. Eye Candy in the elevator at work;)

While out at a bar one night, Sam meets Logan, a handsome and confident man who asks her out on a d

I received a copy to review. I didn't read the blurb or anything. I agreed to read it because Mistaken Identity is T.C. Matson debut novel. I love reading debut novels because I don't have any expectation of how it will be. Mistaken Identity is a good read. T.C. Matson is one author that I going to be watching for her next book to come out.

I fell in love with this book from the first chapter. It is one of the best books I have read in a long time. I just couldn’t stop reading and when I had no choice, but to quit reading I wondered what happens next. This is an amazing book from a very talented writer. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It is not your typical contemporary romance thriller. If you don’t like a lot of sex in your books, then this is definitely the book for you.

There is not a lot I can say about this book besides the fact that I loved it!

When Samantha starts a new job and meets Logan, she soon realises he is not the man for her. After a while she meets Tanner, a man who turns her world upside down and gives her something she has always wanted…HOPE.

But when someone begins to threaten that, can Sam and Tanner save what they have?

I loved the characters as Sam was feisty and not afraid to stand up for what she believed in! Even after a devastating attack,

For a first book T.C. Matson has done a great job. I bought this book this afternoon and couldn't put it down until I finished it. Sam (Samantha) wasn't looking for love as she was getting over a two year relationship. Jess (her best friend, sister from another mother) helps her get a job with the Weston Company where she works. Sam meets Logan, a construction worker, at a local bar after work on the first day and they start dating but there's fireworks and he gets weird so she ends it. She meet ...more

Some spoilers... I loved Tanner, in fact I loved all the main characters, Samantha, Jess & even Marty. It hooked me from the beginning and I couldn't put it down. I went back and forth in my head trying to figure out who was sending Sam threatening letters. It had a great mixture of everything, love, emotions, friendship, suspense, intrigue, sex and violence. I could have done without the violence as those parts are so hard for me to read. But it was powerful and written exceptionally well a ...more

Mistaken Identity by T C Matson is full of suspense, intrigue & violence along with some seriously hot sex scenes.

Lots of potential...

I really liked this author's writing style and will more than likely give other books a chance but this one just didn't do it for me. It started off with great potential but quickly went downhill. I found the characters annoying, especially Sam, the heroine. Strangely, my favorite one to read about was Logan and that was only because he was so well written that I believed in his craziness. I found it so unbelievably stupid that Sam couldn't forgive Tanner given the circumstan

Where to begin.... the book is a love story wrapped in a mystery. Samantha (h) begins a new job, sees sexy eye candy in the elevator, meets a sexy man at a bar. Without messing up the story for you, lies are told, people aren't who they seem and cryptic messages are being sent. What I enjoyed the most is the inner musings of Sam especially while training a new employee. I love it when a book can make me laugh as well as cringe with worry. The author managed to make Sam very human... l

4 Elevator Stars

So Mr. Eye Candy kept us intrigued through out the book, I wanted to jump in and just give him a quick *ahem* squeeze ;)

This was my first book from TC Matson and I was captivated and sucked into the story from start to finish. It did not take a detective to figure out who was stalking her but I will let you figure it out for your self.
Once the story came together the ending felt a little rushed. But all in all I thought it was a great read and would recommend it

Great Debut Book!!

I am in Love with Tanner Weston!!

Strong willed Samantha just got under his skin. Secrets and lies threaten to ruin the relationship but Tanner comes out swinging.

Jess is the best friend that every girl wants/needs.

Crazy stalker gets in your head and can't wait to see his fall!

Roller coaster of emotions throughout this book and I can't wait to read more from this new author.

5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!!!

I love discovering new authors. T.C. Matson does not disappoint with her debut novel. This is a heart wrenching story that is sure to take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I had a hard time putting my kindle down until every last page was devoured. All the characters were so easy to connect with.

This is a Crazy Ass Must Read!

It was the perfect combination of suspense, comedy, romance and of course hottness!! Once I started reading I found it almost impossible to stop!And that ending turned me into a blubbering pile of mush!

TC did great with this one! The twists and turns were so unexpected! I have not read a book like this before. The stalker... Tanner... loved it! She didn't over do the sex! It didn't feel like I was in a porn. Lol. It had just the right amount!
