My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am hooked on anything to do regarding the Ward siblings and/or the Washington Wolves so I get super excited when a new book is going to be released because Karla is coming to the rescue and feeding my addiction. I can say with certainty that I inhaled this book.
Claire Ward has had feelings for her twin sister’s best friend, Finn, for a very long time. And she has kept her feelings a secret. Finn does not see her in that way but an opportunity comes along where Claire can hope for more from Finn for one night… but there’s a catch–she has to be Lia for the night. There’s is another switch-a-roo taking place, Bauer–Finn’s bad boy half brother–in the place of Finn. Claire has never met Bauer before nor does she know anything about him–just what she has been told of him and it’s all been negative. But that is not the impression Bauer makes on her. She sees him and gets flustered around him which is a problem because bad boys has never been her type in the past. Not only is Claire pretending to be Lia but now she has to pretend to be with Bauer for a night until that night becomes more and they are stuck together.
The chemistry between Bauer and Claire was smoking hot and Bauer brought out the wild side in Claire. And while he did that, she got to see the real him which not many people know. I loved how she defended him around his family and people who got the wrong perception of him–even before she fully knew him. They fell fast and hard and their romance was sweet and hot. The straight A good girl fell fast for the tattooed bad boy and it terrified her but he was a risk she was willing to take. Bauer thought he was not good enough for her but she showed him that he was.
I loved getting snippets from one of my favorite couples–Logan and Paige—and from the the rest of the Ward siblings. I’m waiting on Isabel’s book now.
