While I found the cutesy title of the book a bit too saccharine -I decided to give it a try anyway as I've read good reviews for the authors previous books.
This first book in a series started very well with an intriguing back story about twin brothers who were born on the "wrong side of the sheet" to an earl and who find themselves orphaned at 10 when there mother dies in prison-wrongly accused of treason.
Fast forward to chapter 2-20+ years later to the story of Tristian and Penelope. The book left me ambivalent-while there were parts of "clarity" within the book-between the main characters and secondary characters-it was too often seasoned with choppy, far fetched and repetitive writing as to make the book hard to get through.
Overall the book seems hastily put out, and very poorly edited (I found several obvious grammatical errors, misspellings and even one twin being referred to as the other!)
While I loved the fact that the H/H are older, and experienced from other relationships-I didn't like the authors tendency to keep having their inner dialog go over yet again why they could not marry-when the reasoning was not even plausible to begin with.
The ending of the story is 360 degrees from what the characters were trying to accomplish throughout the book and made for an immature, silly end.
I'm trying the other twins story right now and I hope it will be better than this one.For those like me with limited book budgets- I would only recommend this book used or from the library.
