Today is the day! Today is the release day of Rachael Stewart‘s new book, “The Good Sister“. You may remember her name from another review, the review of her book “Unshackled”, and you may also remember how excited I got about that book. Well, let’s just say my feelings for this book are equally powerful.
The first time I read the blurb I got excited, I knew I would love it, I had that feeling… So imagine my happiness when it became true. But let me get to the information about the book and Rachael before I get to my review.
Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Rachael Stewart for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.
HE WASN’T HERS TO LOVE … BUT HER HEART DOESN’T CARE…
When Isla Evans agrees to switch lives with her rising star of a twin for three weeks, she has no idea the move will thrust her into the same bed as her teenage celebrity heartthrob, Bradley King. Trapped there at her sister’s request, she gives her desire free reign and finds herself falling hard and fast.
And she’s not alone.
Bradley wants a wife to tick all the boxes, save for one: love. It’s not part of the deal, never was, never will be. But when he returns home early to find his hopeful-fiancée behaving all sorts of different, he likes it. A lot. Suddenly, he wants a real marriage, with all the trimmings, and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.
But this Hollywood HEA faces one big hurdle—she’s not who he thinks she is…
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heart-warmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.
Despite a degree in Business Studies and spending many years in the corporate world, the desire to become an author never waned and it’s now her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
If you really know me you know how much I love romances (contemporary, historical, fantasy, paranormal, comedy, …), so this books was on spot. This is Rachael’s second book and it’s not even right to compare the two books. Why?… Because although they are both hot romances, with amazing plots and characters, “Unshackled” was raw and much erotic. But, “The Good Sister“ was down the lines of a romance novel I usually read, with some waffles and identity change as the toping on the cake.
This book still maintains that special tone in the storyline that I loved in Rachael’s first book. She takes us on this journey through love, family, drama and everything in between, and still leaves us wanting for more.
The concept of this book is also unexpected for me. When I read the blurb I was like “Okay… This is interesting. I wonder how that is going to work out for them.” We know from the very beginning, even before reading the first line, that Isla Evans has agreed to switch lives with her twin sister, and I haven’t read that many books with that as the main aspect in the plot. Actually I don’t remember reading a book like this one.
I have twins in my family. My dad has a twin sister (my godmother) so I always feel a connection with that when I read it in books, but this take on the all identity change was just perfect. I loved how Bradley saw the differences and I loved how the plot went from them waking up in bed to the very end.
Reading how the characters dealt with the problems, mainly Isla with the secret that she’s not her twin sister, and how they interacted with each other, had such a real tone that it made me curious from beginning to end. I read the book in one morning, I could stop because of that. It just grabbed my attention and never let it go until the last line. Then I felt the craving to read more.
The funny thing was that, after reading the book, I found myself thinking about some things. Number one: I now wish Rachael one day writes Carrie’s side of the story because I would love to know how her life ends up. Number two: What about Amy? I want her to have an happy ending too.
With toes curling hot and sexy scenes, to sweet moments between Bradley and Isla, and of course, one important thing: waffles. This book bring a balance between the sexiness and the tenderness in every engaging moment.
Do I recommend this book? Of course! I loved it and I hope you guys do too.
