I feel like my mother when I say that this book was just trash, but it really was. I don't mind a steamy sex scene every once in a while, but these were frequent and so detailed that it really seemed pornographic to me. The storyline was somewhat interesting at the beginning, but got ridiculous as the book progressed.

I randomly picked this up at the library when I went without my list of things I want to read (always a mistake) and regretted it, for sure. It was the day before I moved and I cou

I enjoy Judith Gould's book for a break. They are light, romance/suspense novels for a fast read. This particular novel is good twin vs evil twin. Ms. Gould does a good job developing her characters so an interest is created right from the beginning. If you are looking for a thought provoking novel to sink your teeth into, this is not the book for you.

This is by far my favorite book I have read. The author keeps you on edge until the very end. Once you get to know one character and her evil ways the books turns around by introducing her twin sister that was "thrown away" as a child. With help from the evil sisters assistants the new twin soon puts everything back on the right track.

The old twin switcheroo--out with evil twin Nikoletta, in with good twin Adriana. Mix well with the jet set and international corporate greed and you have the setting for The Secret Heiress. Add sex and sun and voila, a novel.
The whole book was curiously detached, even the so-called steamy sex.

Read for Spring Challenge 15.1

The protagonist of this book was SO GOOD and her twin sister was SO EVIL and their departed papa's reason for separating them was SO STUPID that I am shocked I actually finished this novel. The resolution was so pat and ridiculous that my 7-year-old nephew would be ashamed to end one of his stories so tidily. Awful!

I give this 1 star only because it was so bad that it was funny. I can't even believe I finished it. Seriously though, it did make me laugh- it is unintentionally hysterical. I borrowed the ebook from digital library because I had nothing with me to read.

This book didn't measure up to Gould's usual standards. The plot, characters, and story weren't well developed, the book was boring and predictable. If a reader wants an entertaining tale full of the "Dynasty" type of stories Gould usually crafts so well, why not re-read "Sins" or "Too Damn Rich?"

Too much sex. Not enough plot or character development.

If you enjoy gossip girl and fifty shades of grey i feel you would enjoy this book. Although it is slightly predictible it's also very fun. This book is more for the younger generation.

Decent book if somewhat unbelievable. But if you don't question it, it is a light fun read

A combo of Gossip Girl and The Man in the Iron Mask-- a few incredibly risque scenes.
