The North name is a heavy burden. Two things I learned young—the best way to keep my head on is to keep my head down, and… never fall in love.
But I’m a sucker for a damsel in distress.
Lillian came into my life swinging. Mistaking me for my abusive twin brother, she greets me with a swift kick to the balls and a busted lip. Then she really shakes up my world.
She needs her job, but she needs a break just as much. And nothing silences my demons as efficiently as playing the hero.
To protect her from my jerk twin—her boss—I take her on a business trip and quickly learn that she’s different. Blunt. Honest. Intriguingly strange. I’m transfixed, so when she unknowingly sinks a multimillion-dollar deal, I don’t speak up. Something my family won’t forgive.
Now, I have a choice to make. I can go against my own blood and burn the North legacy to the ground, or play it safe, commit to my self-imposed rules and predestined future. Choosing her would ruin my life as I know it, but I’m starting to wonder if a life without her is worth living.
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 8, 2022
Not my first read by the author but this is my 3rd book ever I’ve read by her and the other two were in this series. I really have loved this series thus far. This one I wasn’t sure what to expect but the hero right off the bat is WORTH it!
The heroine in this one is…different and not in a bad way she just happens to have some mental ticks (not like we all don’t) to hurtle over every day. Doesn’t help that she got a job at a place she LOVES working but got paired up with the evil twin. The hero is the non-evil twin who is actually really sweet, still stern and alpha but has a softer heart. When they get paired up on temporarily, the heroine might show the hero what it is to let go a little and live in the moment. BUT i have to say there is a line between someone being different and it just being little weird. I don’t want it to come off that there is anything wrong with anyone that is different but to me and reading this, I was not able to connect to the heroine. I don’t know if it’s just simple non-understanding of her ways or just the whole overall, so that kind of threw me back a little. I did not feel the connection between H&H like the hero was saying, it must have gone over my head because all I remember from them together is that they had some fun but mostly it’s separate. No connection. The dynamic between them gave me whiplash.
I ended up DNFing this book and did not go back, maybe I will eventually but for now I am leaving my review at this.
