4 Right Twin Stars

“That’s my one rule, Sophia. Honesty, no lies. Ever.”

Oh boy!

If Sophia Cruz has a weakness it’s her twin sister, Giovanna. The fact Giovanna is an up and coming model and has always been considered the “pretty”twin while Sophia feels more comfortable in front of a computer screen isn’t an issue. When Gia gets double booked with two modeling jobs she can’t turn down, Sophia finds herself filling in on the DL for Gia one last time. When she sets eyes on the hottie partnering with

I fell in love with Naima Simone's words after I read Scoring Off the Field and my love for this talented author is cemented with this book, which is actually the first book in the series.

I enjoyed Sophia and Zephirin, whose name sounds like a superhero, by the way. Their romance wasn't just hot and steamy but it also has a lot of heft. The conflict felt natural and the plot flowed seamlessly. Love the dialogue and how the characters interact with each other.

I loved it! From the premise, to the characters, and last but not least the writing... this books scored on every level. It's a sports read that's true to wow fans of the genre!

I grabbed this book for a couple reasons. First and foremost, I read Naima's Lick series last year and those suckers were HAWT!! I Floved them. However, I lost track of her this past year, so I was elated when this beauty popped up on NetGalley. Second, that sexy is this guy?!! Luckily Zephirin did not disapp
Just what I needed. Everything about the characters, the writing and the plot worked. I just wish it was longer. But then again, the length of the story felt enough too.

Anyway, onto more Naima Simone.

4.5 - "Honesty... no lies." Stars!

I have a bit of a soft spot for Naima Simone’s writing, so was excited to see that her next series; WAGS is based around pro-footballer’s and of course the women that fall for them.

I think the title pretty much gives the game away when it comes to the themes of the story. No real surprises in how things turned out either, but I absolutely adored Zephirin, and Sophia held her own as well.

She just wanted to be someone else for a little while… Enjoy this dance
4.5 stars.
Naima Simone writes smoking hot reads and this one was no exception.
I absolutely loved it.
Sophia Cruz and her twin sister, Giovanna were so totally different in personalities but identical in looks and their true commitment to each other was sweet and adorable.
Excellent read from it's lovable characters, to the interesting sports-themed story line and of course the anticipated "switch" of the twins.
Zephirin was definitely worth the effort on Sophia's part of pretending to be her sis
Giving a 1-star review to a Naima Simone book is shocking even for me, particularly because I do like Simone’s writing and her play of emotions that tends to jump out at every turn of the page.

Where do I even start?

I went into 'Scoring with the Wrong Twin’ knowing that deception was going to play a part in this story, though I’d hoped it wouldn’t be the primary source of the conflict that carried the plot. Or that the story would have taken a different turn after their one-night stand, where S

I so love this book!! This is my first time reading this author, but it definitely will not be the last! Zeph and Sophia make me lightheaded. Loads of Chemistry, pure sexiness, and of course an Alpha male that made not only Sophia weak, but myself also. Looks like I have a new book boyfriend!

4 'Introduce me to Sophia' Stars!

This is actually my first full-length novel from Naima Simone. I did read a novella she wrote last year for Read Me Romance and I do remember enjoying it a lot. Being a big fan of Brazen novels, I knew I would find an entertaining love story full of steam and emotions. That's exactly what I got with Scoring With the Wrong Twin and I was all over it. I really, really enjoyed this book, Naima's writing and how she developed the relationship between Zephirin and Sop

***** 4 Stars *****

Well... the title of the book pretty much sums up the story.

Add a HEA..... and tadda- done.

4 stars because the main characters were easy to like.
4 stars because it was enjoyable but nothing special.

One of the things I didn't really like was how Naima strongly pointed out the next romance couple. It felt a bit cheap. Like a used car salesman.

It is free on the audible romance package - just saying!

Scoring With the Wrong Twin went by pretty fast. In it, you will meet Sophia and Zephirin. She's the shy one between her and her outgoing twin sisters. Yet, she still caves in to her sister's need to switch places for a certain photo shoot. After meeting the guy, Zeph, she is constantly living in doubt that once he meets her sister - he will act like everyone else. She seems to think she is forgettable and I was excited for him to prove her

Sophia Cruz is the complete opposite of her twin, her twin is outgoing and a model while Sophia looks exactly like her she is more into computers and is the shy one. When her sister asks her to pretend she is her for a model shoot, Sophia reluctantly agrees but she does not expect to be modeling with Washington Warriors Tight End Zephirin Black. Everything about him makes Sophia's body hum but she knows it can never go anywhere especially when he thinks she is her twin.

After reading the plot, I expected a pretty good book. Maybe that's why I was a bit disappointed.

Don't get me wrong, it wasn't too bad, it might be worth it if you're bored and don't know what to read next. I just expected a bit more.

The characters were ok, they had their good moments and their 'idiot' moments and the idea was pretty good, guess I just didn't really like the writing style. The book dragged a bit and I ended up skimming a few pages.

Might be worth reading though, you can a

#1 Scoring With the Wrong Twin : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
#2 Scoring off the Field : ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
# 3 Scoring the Player's Baby : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Everything about this was just perfect. Our leads were so so good and the plot itself was fantastic. So maybe I wish it was a bit longer...but isn’t that always the way when everything is going just right?.?

A lickalicious hero, a heroine in disguise, and a knee-buckling, skin-sizzling ride. Naima Simone is the queen of romcom with heart. Yet again, she delivers a page-turning romance with relatable characters who could be my best friends or, in Zephirin's case, my next stalking victim. Compelling and heart-melting, this one is a must-read! ...more

Zephirin and Sophia had their issues, but their chemistry was out the door sexy! My only complaint is that I wish Sophia came clean with Zephirin way sooner then she did.

As a kid, I always wanted a twin so we could switch places and fool people, so when I read the synopsis for Scoring with the Wrong Twin I knew this book was for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Identical twins, unless you count the piercings and tattoo on one, the fact that one is super outgoing and an up and coming super model and the other is a app developer switch places when the model needs to be in two places at one time, what could go wrong? Well, in this case not much because the non-model

When I picked up Scoring with the Wrong Twin by Naima Simone, I had no idea what to expect. I’m a huge fan of her Indulgence books, but this marks her first time writing under the Entangled Brazen imprint. What I got was Naima’s standard snarky, sassy heroine and devastatingly sexy, multi-layered hero. The sexy times were kicked up and hot enough to melt steel. I LOVED every page!

The story starts off with model Giovanna Cruz begging her identical twin Sophia to take her place at a photoshoot. Gi

Rated 4.5 Stars

I absolutely adored this book. It was funny, hot and had the most relatable characters I've read in a long time. I loved both main characters but I loved the heroine Sophia more because I identified with her on so many levels. I think the author did a great job portraying her characteristics and highlighting her issues while showing her growth throughout. I loved that the hero was sweet, sexy and a dirty talker. He was the perfect match for the heroine.

I definitely recommend this

This is a radical notion - a football romance where the hero is actually a person of color.
I know, I know. In Romancelandia, the ratio of Caucasian/Non-Caucasian football players is decidedly skewed. I’m not saying there are no black football player heroes out there (tons of best friends or other supporting characters, not alot leading). There’s just a whole lot less of them than you’d actually see on a football field any given Sunday. #justafact

Now, I’d had this on my TBR list foreve

Scoring With the Wrong Twin is the first book in the new WAGS (Wives and Girlfriends) series by Naima Simone, and the whole series promises to be a steamy page-turner. Our current and future heroes are members of the Washington Warriors football enterprise and the best of friends. This hot bunch surely turns heads where ever they congregate, and I certainly wouldn't mind the cold and rain of Seattle if I had the chance to snag one of these warriors.

TW: transphobic statement.

Right so i waffled on how to rate this exactly. It's my first Naima Simone book and it had me torn because there was a lot to like here, but i had some problems with it as well.

First off i love the author's writing style. drew me right in.

I loved the chemistry between Zeph and Sophia in all their scenes together, especially that one where they first meet, during that photo shoot daaaaamn. Sparks flying everywhere.

Loved that we got POC mains yessss. Heroin

I absolutely loved this book! Zeph and Sophia were so damn sweet, and hot, and sinful, and just scorching together. Full review to come.

Naima Simone’s first entry in her WAGS series (Wives and Girlfriends) is a steamy, twin switch romp that introduces some hot football players and the women they fall for.

Sophia Cruz is used to playing second fiddle to her model twin sister Giovanna. As an app developer with a love of ‘80’s movies, a penchant for funny t-shirts, and her own pierced and tattooed style, she doesn’t begrudge her sister’s fame since being in the limelight is the last thing she’d enjoy. When Giovanna begs her to take

I LOVED this book! It's my first by this author, but it will not be my last!

Sophia Cruz is a shy, geeky girl with a love for computer coding and creating apps. She's certainly far different from her gorgeous, outgoing, professional model of an identical twin sister, Giovanna. Giovanna asks a HUGE favor from Sophia, and she just can't say no to her twin. So, she agrees to step in and complete a photo shoot in Giovanna's place, so no one will be the wiser. She never imagined she'd meet a man she'd
