I don't even know how to write a review for this was one, it was just ok.

The beginning was good and the book looked promising but then again it was just there!nothing happened.

I didn't really feel the connection between the MCs and the dialogue fell flat at times.

It was a good departure from my recent reads, i expected it to be more but it did not deliver.

There was just something missing.

4,5 * Romancing the Wrong Twin by Clare London

Dominique/Dom is a grumpy bear. Climbing mountains, being in the nature is all what he wants.
Yet he needs money for his expedition and to gain it he has to date another gay celebrity as a promotion thing....

He hates domesticity that's why being in the mountains is the best for him.
For only the promotion he accepts a date with Zeb the sexy celebrity. So not his thing.

Only Zeb sends his twin brother Aidan instead. Aidan will play as he is Zeb.

**ZOMG** This is my gush face!
I loved every second of this sugary fluff. Loved the age-gap, the fieriness, fluff, and the British Boys.

I'm almost certain that this is my first Clare London book, I will definitely be reading more from her. This Dreamspun Desires series seems to be going one of two ways for me. Either I dislike them or love them. Ha, this is a good one. I do okay with fake relationship aspect. I think the author did a fabulous job on making the twins as nigh and day

This is the first time I read a book about mistaken identity. Well, I seen plenty in movies, but I wonder how will it works out here.

Aidan who is Zeb's twin, decided to help his supermodel brother to assume his identity and go on a date with a popular mountaineer, Dominic. Dominic is a non-nonsense, gruff and lack of social etiquette of a brute. The last thing he needs is to date a diva model for a PR stunt. But when he meet Zeb, who is in fact, Aidan, he didn't expect to be attracted to the ch

“Romancing the Wrong Twin” is a fun and sweet book with a serious case of deliberate mistaken identities. I had fun reading this story which is a little outrageous but entertaining.

"Romancing the Wrong Twin" is the tale of a grumpy hairy mountaineer and a struggling playwright with a Harlequin-esque twist involving twins. Sure it's improbable but it's a delight to buy into the trope and enjoy this deliciously sexy story.

It's simple really - Dominic Hartington-George needs money to finance his mountaineering expedition to Eiger, and Aidan needs funds to support his struggling group of players. In order to raise his profile for potential investors, Dominic needs to be seen o

This was utterly charming: Sweet, funny, sexy. What I love about this series is how the books have fun with these far-fetched tropes, while grounding the stories with authentic, sympathetic character moments. Though the premise of how Dom and Aiden/Zeb get together is ridiculous, nothing could feel more realistic than their attraction and chemistry. Also, the modeling scene was priceless and I loved the London setting.

Bottom Line: winner.

This book was really awful, in my opinion. It was choppy, the characters were disconnected with stilted dialogue and awkward sex. The plot was nonsense and it read a little like a farce with random people popping up unrelated to anything. The MC's couldn't even be arsed to try to talk and work things out. I couldn't follow the big reveal scene (the mother coming out of nowhere?). It was not my cup of tea.
Deliciously OTT (suspend your disbelief) shenanigans when one twin stands in for the other one, who happens to be a famous model, while pseudo-dating a gruff mountain climber for publicity and funding.

Dominic, the mountain man, is a mountain of a man, with lots of hair all over, which appeals quite a bit to Aidan, the non-famous twin, who's a struggling playwright doing his brother a huge favor.

Posing as Zeb Z., Aidan goes on one reluctant date that then turns into more dates, and slowly but s
Asked by his brother Zeb, to fill in for him on a date, Aiden meets the gruff Dominic, who is also going on the date for publicity and to drum up sponsorship.
Adien thinks he is going out with the real Zeb, supermodel and has no idea that it is in fact his twin.
Trouble is that the two get along really well and start to fall in love.
An interesting book which I liked well enough. I thought Dom took the reveal at the end of the book well.
A nice way to pass a couple of hours.

‘Romancing the Wrong Twin’ attracted my attention because twins and the identity confusion they can cause fascinate me. Just imagining the potential chaos if someone fell for the “wrong” one had me look forward to reading this book, and since one twin is an outgoing model and the other a shy playwright, a major mess was sure to erupt. But when, in chapter one, I discovered exactly how gruff and anti-social mountaineer Dominic is, the man who is supposed to improve his image by dating famous mode ...more

It’s no secret I am a hopeless romantic. I am in love with love. It’s also no secret that I adore the holy heck out of the Dreamspun Desire series and I am so addicted it could be scary if the stories weren’t so much fun.

This is definitely one of my favorites from the series and that is a tough thing to say. I love the series but when you have The Twin Switch trope then add in one gruff and grumpy bear of a mountaineer I am a goner for the pairing and this story was so much fun.

I read pretty much have read every Dreamspun Desires book in Dreamspinner Press’s series. There’s over 20 so far and Romancing the Wrong Twin is my favorite of this collection to date.

Clare London has written not just a terrific love story but an engaging and unique one. Sure, the twin thing has been written a hundred ways but Clare really made this her own.

Twins, one a super model the other a playwright. One well known the other not known at all. Zeb and Aiden are identical physically but me

I'm actually intensely surprised that I'm not rating this book higher than I am. You see, this book avoided the massively huge trap that I was basically convinced it was going to fall into: the trap wherein the knows-nothing-about-mountain-climbing-Aidan is converted by mountain-climbing-expert-Dominic into a mountain climbing fanatic who would scale impossible peaks with Dominic.

That didn't happen. Aidan knew about mountain climbing before he met Dominic (although he certainly wasn't on Dominic

Another solid contribution to the Dreamspun Desires line. The twin gambit really takes me back to the romance I read before. Definitely a bit of suspension of belief is needed, but the characters felt real. I wanted more to Aiden, though.

This was an alright read for me. I couldn't really get into the characters or the story line with any type of excitement. It just really didn't scream "I need to finish now" type of story even though I like Clare London's books quite a bit.

Hilarious is the word for this one. And I liked it a lot. Sometimes I felt that I needed a bit more and wanted a bit more of development, but overall, amazing. It’s rather slow but when they finally do something, it’s fucking sexy.

♡☆(¸.•♥´ Honey, I have a favor to ask.

Struggling to make it in the theater district, Aiden found himself playing puppeteer to his rambunctious twin brother, popular model Zeb Z. One date with the antisocial, scowling man Zeb referred to as Hairy Guy, that was all it would take to help both Zeb and the mountaineer out. No hardship on Aiden's part, considering his slight crush on Dom.

Dominic Hartington-George only wanted recognition as his father's child. He had been c
This is a feel good, low angst sweet romance. Kind of the one I like to read from time to time to lightened my mood after a bad book, or high angst book. And usually worked for me.
This one is no exceptional.
The title alone caught my interest, the wrong twin couldn't be so right to romance right?
Because, 'the wrong' one usually is 'the right' one for you. Ha! Am I right, or right?

Losing his finance to climb a mountain again, a celebrity mountaineer Dom, need a new funding to start climbing again

Overall, I wasn’t too enamored of this book. London clearly puts a lot of effort into describing the characters, and the plot is well-crafted. For the first three-quarters of the book, I didn’t get the impression the action and behaviors of the various players was forced. That said, there were a couple of glaring inconsistencies. For example, once Aidan has to start interacting with people who think he is Zeb, Aidan begins to behave more assertively, with more co

This felt more “tongue in cheek” than some of the other Dreamspun Desires books. Both MCs felt a bit more like caricatures than authentic people, though they were fun and interesting.

I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of the melding between the supposed model and the mountaineer – that definitely wasn’t the focus. Most of this was the banter between two pretty cantankerous individuals and then battling the paparazzi.

It’s very British and I love that! I also really liked the

I loved this opposite pair with more in common than they first thought. Gruff straight-down-the-line Dominic, and Aiden, dressed up as Zed, wanting to be himself, falling for the wrong boy. It's predictable romance, but really well written and a satisfying conclusion.

Enjoyable and fun.
