Sep 25, 2016 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Slow novel with some majorly predictable plot events. There were a few surprises, but not enough to make me read the next book in the series. The novel definitely needed another round of editing, as there were many misused words and sentences that were not edited properly and had extra words from the first version. There were several "Huh?" moments where the character's actions didn't make any sense, not under the circumstances or even within character. So it seemed a bit contrived in those mome ...more

Billie Rose is NOT like her twin, Blythe. Not sexy, not an up-and-coming NY fashion designer, not dating jet-setter polo-player Ethan Kheiron. In fact, history with ex-boyfriend Andrew has them estranged. An attempt to reconcile brings Billie to NY, where she's mistaken for Blythe, meets CEO Heath Kheiron, brother to Blythe's lover Ethan, and finds herself drawn into globe-trotting corporate intrigue that rivals a James Bond thriller. Nothing is what it seems; no-one can be trusted, and if Billi ...more

It was really good.
Billie, the heroine, is possibly the most real character I've ever read. She's too damn proud, takes things to heart, is insecure and jealous and doesn't have a proper sense of direction. She trusts easily and holds grudges for a long time. She's incredibly self - righteous and doesn't really listen to others. She hasn't really moved on from the heartbreak she felt with her ex a few years ago and is afraid of relationships.

Yes, she is deeply flawed, but that's what makes her so real. I was reall

*****5 Phoebe And Hilairia Stars*****

This is my first Liz Durano book and I absolutely LOVED it! The writing was superb and the plot unique. Twin sisters, one outgoing, the other reserved. A huge misunderstanding and they become estranged from each other. One lives in New York, the other in a small town in California. One has fashion sense, the other doesn't. Polar opposites. But they are identical twins. What could happen? LOTS!

This story has conspiracy, blackmail, murder, deception, embezzlem

I received this book free from the author to read and leave an honest review. Billie's twin sister, Blythe, disappeared with billionaire, Ethan. Ethan's younger brother, who has control of the family business, wants Billie's help in finding them. What a good, sexy mystery. There is mistaken identity, sibling rivalry, lies, murder, secrets, romance and more. This story is a fast-paced, well-written, twist and turn of a romance mystery to keep you guessing. The characters have a depth to them that ...more

Lovely surprise

Even though it’s still heavy on romance and more sweet and unrealistic than I prefere, the other aspects of story - fraud line, family and intrigue - was way above what I expected and add the story another star.
When one leave the romance, there were more to the characters and they really had their lives, dreams, history. Sometimes they behaved stupid in the name of plot, but in whole they were better then what I expected from the first few pages.
Plot was tangled too even if you co

Liz Durano is a prolific author of romance novels. I was looking for something light to read during a busy holiday season, when I came upon this previously unknown (to me) author. Though it gets off to a good start--sibling rivalry, a trip to New York City, a handsome stranger--the plot slows down and becomes repetitive midway. There are also some errors, so the book could have used perhaps one more round of editing. But I like the main character and the glamorous settings. The author's descript ...more

Would have rated it higher,,,,

Great plot with enjoyable characters! I would have given a rating of 4 stars if the author hadn't written the entire book in the present tense. I found the use of present tense throughout the book very distracting and kept looking for a red pen to make corrections. All in all, a very good story and plot with twists and turns.

I was reading this on Wattpad since Dec 20, 2019. And then last week, Liz sent me my very copy. Thanks a bunch 💐, Liz!

Just the right amount of everything. It was an amazing read and I couldn't believed I didn't read this book sooner - back in 2015.

The storyline was fine but my problem was characters. I did not find them believable them and very often questioned the logic of their behaviour. The sister was just annoying to me. Generally, this book was not my taste.

I like the chats and the story. It is a little slow in one place, but a very good read...

I can see why soo many people love this book. The characters are really easy to get attached to. But I don't know, I mean don't get me wrong, I enjoyed and like it, but the dialogues, some scenes, it just didn't worked that well for me. And honestly I really wanted to like this book, like really much.
It wasn't bad, just not what I was expecting.
The plot was good, but I think it could be better developed.
Other than that, this book was nice to read, with a heroine who has not much selfconfidence

I enjoyed this book. The characters, though their actions were not always believable, were real and likeable enough. The plot was great. The writing was good, but there were a few things that could have been better with the help of an editor. In some cases there were extra words or repeated words, and there were a couple of typos. For me, the bigger issue was the misuse of idioms and mistakes, such as using the wrong character name during conversation.

Overall, I would recommend the book and I'm

This was a fabulous reading experience. I loved the twins experience and having them be exact looking but so different in I did not connect at all with Ethan much in the story. He seemed to be there but no I felt little about him. But Heath was pretty nice. I liked his alpha. The intimate scenes were perfection. I never read detailed sex scenes but this book was just sweet and simmering.

I absolutely loved it, I just couldn't put down the book until I reached the last page. It's mysterious and with the right amount of romance it's one of my favorite books. This story is so passionate and beautiful, made up of perfectly imperfect characters that they touch your emotions and take you in their journey with them. It just swept me off my feet. Absolutely loved it. ...more

I truly loved this story of wealth, deception and love. What a whirl wind journey for these two. Heath is all work and no play where Billie is all no worries, carefree. Until her twin sister is involved, then it's no holds barred!! She loves her and will go where ever she needs to protect her. Who new love was possible for this charade of a couple. Where will it all end up. Loved it!! Exciting!! ...more

Aside from Billie being the one who keeps up the comparisons with her sister, it's an enjoyable book. It was easy to solve the fraud mystery, but the mystery did a good job of keeping the story going at a steady space. ...more
