Down to You by M.Leighton
My second book read in 2013 is Down to you by M.Leighton. I'll be 100% honest and admit it took me quite a while to get into this book, but once i did it was difficult to put down. However, One girl, two brothers, how will she choose? (i certainly couldnt)
Imagine being out on a hen party and being guilt tripped by your best friend, the bride to be, to help the hired stripper remove his clothes. You start removing his t shirt when theres a knock at the door and there standing in the doorway is the ACTUAL stripper. The man who's t shirt you were removing was actually the night club owner!!!!!!
"What do you mean he'll be entertaining us?" she asks, turning her confused eyes on me.
I don't answer her right away. I know she'll figure it out soon enough.
She looks over at Jason trying to piece together what just happened.
"Now, which of you beautiful women is the bride-to-be?" Jason asks.
I see it the instant understanding dawns. Her eyes widen again and, even in the low light i see her cheeks turn red.
This book is told from 3 different points of view Cash, the bad boy club owner, Nash the trainee lawyer and Olivia the woman torn between the two. It soon becomes clear to Olivia that both men cant resist her but, which one will she choose? OR...... does she even have to make a decision after the shocking secret Cash reveals meaning Olivia's love triangle never actually was a triangle.
After having her heart broken by many bad boys Olivia made a pact to herself to never get involved with a bad boy again, ever. The problem she faces is no matter how much she tries to resist Cash the cockey, smart arse, omigod effing hot, tattooed, bad boy biker, there's something pulling her back.
“You’ve never ridden a motorcycle before?”
“What kind of bad-boy girlfriend are you?” I ask in mock dismay.
“Evidently a terrible one.”
I swing onto the bike…
“Nah, you just haven’t met the right bad-boy.”
Nash on the other hand, is everything Olivia ever wanted in a man, incredibly handsome, charming, intelligent, successful and grounded. Just one slight problem and one major problem. The slight problem? Nash is Cash's twin brother..... yes identical twin. The major problem? Nash is dating Olivia's spoilt, snobby, snide, cousin and house mate Merissa.
I know we shouldn't be holding hands as though we are on a date, but i cant bring myself to pull my fingers free. This will be over all too soon;m I'm going to enjoy every last second of it while i can. Tomorrow, reality returns. Along with it, Marissa.
I have to say the teaser from book 2 at the end is looks very interesting, and i will definitely be downloading it. Because although it took me a while to get stuck into this one, once i did i was unable to put it down and i totally felt for Olivia having to choose between the brothers, as they are so much alike in so many ways, yet so different at the same time.
Definitley worth a read, and dont give up because it will take a while to feel the full effects of this book.
