Very Brief Thoughts: The Mysterious Twin
Mysterious Twin - Leona Karr

The Mysterious Twin
by Leona Karr
Book 1 of Double Exposure
(HQN Intrigue miniseries)

 

 

A DOUBLE DECEPTION

Masquerading as a nanny for her glamorous twin sister went against Ashley Camdon's prim-and-proper nature.  The quiet academic lived life on the sidelines, but her sibling's "simple" request now put her life in danger and her heart on the line when she met her employer's darkly handsome retainer, Kyle Stone.

An undercover agent, Kyle's orders were to keep close tabs on the new nanny who was implicated in an illegal scam. Yet nothing about this quiet beauty fit her high-living profile. When passion flared between them, her honest kisses exposed their lies.  And made him see that the only life he now wanted…was with her!



The Mysterious Twin is, honestly, one of those books that you read, laugh at all the clichés, mutter about the frustratingly dated romance, and roll your eyes about the standard, stereotype, carbon-copy characters.  It's a book you read that DOES get interesting with progression, but remains a bit on the 'meh' side of actual enjoyment.

It's forgettable.

I suppose I'm also kind of surprised by how quickly I finished reading this book; although, the truth is, it was pretty bite-sized.  In a way, I think I kept reading because I just wanted to know how the book wrapped itself up with the twin-switch deception.  But then, when the resolution DID come around, it was fairly abrupt, to the point that it felt like the author realized she hit her allowed number of pages and needed to end things immediately.

There were a lot of things that I felt like the book could have addressed, like maybe the strained relationship between Ashley and Jill.

But this book is a romance, first and foremost, so we spend the most of the short book detailing how Ashley and Kyle manage to fall in love in spite of all the deception and secrets.  And, honestly, the romantic development was a little weak.

I DID appreciate the rapport that Ashley develops with the children she's pretending to be nanny to.  And I like lighthouses... although one was mentioned and detailed, not much happens around it, so that particular detail was moot.

Anyway, The Mysterious Twin was a nice rainy day read, that really just amounted to "something to do to pass the time."

Tied
Tied - Kim Karr James knows how to be a playboy, but can he handle being a husband? Tied was my introduction to author Kim Karr and what an introduction it was. Lindsay and James ran the gamut of sweet, salty and fire. From the first word, the stage was set for a charmingly sexy love story that was picture perfect.

But good intentions don't always go as planned and soon things start to get complicated. Can Amelia and Brook find their HEA or does Amelia's destiny lie back in NY with good guy Logan??

This was one of those books that puts a smile on your face from page one and keeps it firmly in place for the entirety of the story. The writing was fantastic. The characters were likable. The sexual tension was off the charts. The sex scenes were hot. It was sweet. It was romantic. It had a bit of angst, and it had a heart melting epilogue.

Honestly, I don't know what else to say about it. I simply loved every chapter, every page, every sentence, and every word of this one. Two HUGE thumbs up from yours truly.

Maggie is in New York City to celebrate New Year's Eve with her friends. Just dancing, having fun and drinking whiskey. That's until she lays eyes on "Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome" and he is headed her way.

It's a small World when Mr. TDH turns out to be Sam's best friend, and her roommate's brother Keen Masters. The sparks fly between these two which leads to one unforgettable night. Not wanting the connection to end they make plans to text and for Keen to come out for a visit in 2 weeks.

But when Keen stops answering Maggie's texts all she is left with is the pain of rejection and a broken heart. When Keen suddenly shows back up in her life six weeks later, can Maggie put that hurt and anger aside and give Keen a second chance?

I enjoyed this book immensely. It was smoking hot. It was well written. The plot moved along quickly and I never felt the need to skim. It had likable and endearing characters.

I wasn't too sure about Maggie for awhile there, girl can hold a MEAN grudge, but she softened up on Keen fairly quickly. Keen was a sweetheart. Even though the move he pulled was worthy of the "douchenoodle" title, you had to feel for the guy. We also get some fun side characters. Makayla and Sam from No Pants Required are in it a lot. I'm also curious to see what happens with Keen's brother Brooklyn.

Overall, just a really sweet, fairly low angst, and fun read. Two thumbs up from yours truly.

The Liars' Club
The Liars' Club - Mary Karr I loved this book and I don't usually go for memoirs, especially ones claiming dysfunctional childhoods on the jacket, but this was a rare exception. Very well written, excellently paced, witty and sarcastic and ironic made this enjoyable to read and made uncomfortable subjects bearable, even comical. I'd love to read more by Karr and I'd love to see her write fiction (if she hasn't already). Overall great read, easy 5-star rating and I don't give those out liberally but this was well deserving. I'd recommend this book to anyone...it was an excellent, quick read.
