Where rom-com meets reality…

Online dating by proxy. No one would know, right?

Zara isn’t looking for love. She already has that covered—Nigel is her perfect husband. All she needs to do now is find the perfect man for her twin sister Emmy, too. To protect her sister (and surprise her), Zara throws herself into online dating with gusto.

Shawn Taylor, undercover detective, returns home on a private assignment. It is the perfect chance to see Zara again and explain why he’d left so suddenly twenty years ago. Ultimately, he is here to protect her. His brief says she is in serious danger.

But something doesn’t add up. Why is Zara going out with scores of men when hubby is out of town? What kind of twisted game is she playing?

And why, when the castle of cards collapses in a messy heap, is she standing, wielding a whip, over a villain with an erection the size of the Eiffel Tower and his hands tied behind his back?

Pick up this hilarious rom-com to find out.


I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I’ve become a huge fan of Cristina Hodgson’s work and I can’t praise her writing enough.  Cristina Hodgson creates a leading lady who’s life faces a turbulent time, she’s quite strong-willed and focused but goes about her latest project in a crazy, madcap way.  Our leading lady in this novel is Zara Hamilton.  However, behind all the fun and bravado we have a lady that is suffering in silence, a lady that hasn’t felt like her true self in a long time.

Zara Hamilton has come up with a crazy idea to find a ‘perfect brother-in-law’ for her twin sister Emmy who sadly lost her husband a few years ago.  Zara sets up dates and auditions would-be contenders herself as she is Emmy’s identical twin.  Zara has plenty of time on her hands as her husband works away a lot so going on dates posing as her sister is a perfect use of her time!

Whilst Zara is auditioning would-be suitors for her sister behind the scenes the foundations of Zara’s life is crumbling and is set to take an unexpectant turn and a love from her past holds the key to the mystery that is now unravelling.

With her life unravelling as fast as a ball of wool with a playful kitten Zara’s life is about to take a dramatic, dangerous turn.

This was a hugely entertaining read full of fun and frolics with twists and turns to leave you guessing what’s going to happen next.  It also has a lovely romance tangled up amongst the chaos and it will make your heart sing.
