Description: The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.
Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.
Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?
Review: Olivia knows she’s in trouble. She has a weakness for bad boys. Men who are an edgy parallel to herself, a responsible farm girl. This time, she’s not falling for just a bad boy. She’s falling for identical twin brothers who incite a need in her to be reckless. To leave her mind behind as the chaotic whirl of emotions, driving needs and spontaneous actions thrusts her headlong into living a wild fantasy.
Well done, M. Leighton, well done! A small part of me thought it was coming but I didn’t think too hard about it because I was flowing along with the story and enjoying it. There are complicated elements to the book but my responses to it are simple. Down to earth girl meets two boys and decides to take some chances. There’s passion, humorous flirting, wordless exchanges full of something, and knock down honesty mixed with–well, I don’t want to ruin it for you!
I admit that I didn’t go into this book with the intention to think too much. I wanted a fun, sexy read and that’s exactly what I got! Yay! Where’s Shawna, Olivia’s bestie that’s getting married? She’s a fun sidekick and I’m sad that she wasn’t in the story more. I’m willing to suffer more exposure to Marco. Haha! Ginger is a hoot and she reminds me of a few friends.
My favorite word from the whole book: Deassholization.
It doesn’t even need a definition! Mwahahahhahah~
The story is full of characters that I can easily envision and relate to. It’s a sexy romance with it’s own twist. Is it bad that I think it’s sweet? That I enjoyed my chick lit and came away happy? NAH!!!
I’ll definitely read the next book in the series!
