A new STANDALONE romance from New York Times bestselling author Jana Aston
Do you have an identical twin sister?
No? It's okay, most people don't.
But if you did, would you switch places with her?
Of course you would - when you were five.
You might even do it again when you were fifteen.
But a twin switcheroo at twenty-six?
This won't end well.
Add in a sexy stranger - with an even sexier British accent - and things are about to get really complicated. Especially when I'm not the only one keeping secrets...
I love Jana Aston’s writing. Hers is the type of humor that really clicks for me. I eat up her feel-good stories packed with quirky characters. Sure Thing has all the ingredients needed to make a winning romantic comedy. I just wanted to tweak the recipe a little.
Here’s the thing. Despite my love of dirty books, I’m a bit of a goodie two shoes. Lying makes me feel uncomfortable. It’s not that I haven’t done it, but whenever I’m about to tell a lie, or I know someone else is about to lie, I have a mini anxiety attack. The name of the game in this book is Deception, and it affected my enjoyment, especially since the basis is rather convoluted.
Having said that, I loved the characters. How do you spell neurotic? V-I-O-L-E-T. Violet is a contradiction: scared but determined; insecure but sexually assertive; smart but naïve. All that coupled with her extreme lack of filter makes her flat out hilarious. I can see her being my ride or die BFF.
Jennings thinks Violet is a bit of a “nutter” and her behavior frequently raises his antennae, but he continues to pursue her nonetheless. Why? Maybe it’s because she’s delightfully wacky. I’m not exactly sure, but I do know that Violet is a wild woman in the sack, and Jennings is one sexy British beast that I would not kick out of bed for eating biscuits. They put the “Big O” in horny, and I enjoyed their hot romp-abouts.
There’s insta-love and then there’s INSTA-LOVE. This story leans towards the all caps variety, which should please those who are quite ready to escape reality for a few hours. Sure Thing is one unique laugh-out-loud romance.
