He Belongs With Me

Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.

But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart?

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong. 


Thanks to Sarah Darlington for contacting me about her book. It was a great ready despite the reservations I had about the blurb. It was a bit misleading to say the least, but it doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy this book immensely. Going by the blurb I thought there were going to be some cat fights between twin sisters and some hot, hot, hot misunderstandings, but we'll get to those in a minute.

The book starts with Maggie, the "good" twin. She recently had her heart broken by her boyfriend of many years and she wants to make a come back at her dad's dinner party at his country club. Maggie, smokin' hot in a red sheath of a dress, walks into a seedy bar and asks for Dean, a ridiculously attractive bartender. Maggie gets Dean to be her date to the party and a plot twist is in the works already. Moving on to Clara, the "bad" twin. Clara is confident, fiercely independent, and still in the V club. She has a frenemy relationship with Leo Maddox, childhood friend and best friend to Maggie. Leo has been in their lives since they were old enough to walk. Close family friend, Leo knows both girls like the back of his hand. When miscommunication arise and an unfortunate mishap with a golf cart joyride, both Maggie and Clara will learn more about themselves, each other, and finally find the one they're supposed to be with.
