    4.5 stars**ZOMG** This is my gush face!I loved every second of this sugary fluff. Loved the age-gap, the fieriness, fluff, and the British Boys.I'm almost certain that this is my first Clare London book, I will definitely be reading more from her. This Dreamspun Desires series seems to be going one of two ways for me. Either I dislike them or love them. Ha, this is a good one. I do okay with fake relationship aspect. I think the author did a fabulous job on making the twins as nigh and day as she could. I mean they were two completely different people but I loved Zeb & Aidan as equally good. Maybe Aidan a little bit more since he brought out this side of Dominic that no one wasn't able to see. I love the dry humor in this story. I also like that they both had two difference of opinions a lot of times. For all of Dominic's abrasiveness he surely opened up and fell in love unapologetically with Aidan. Even Aidan becoming his brother who is famous and completely different then Aidan was a prize to see. I loved Aidan's vulnerability at times, and loved how when the same feelings were reciprocated within Dominic he did everything he could to pick Dominic's spirit up.Dominic!! You big grouchy bear. He's a commitmentphobe who lives life on the edge or on adrenaline. Dominic is a man of few words, and with the look of my favorite face. The RBF (Resting Bitch Face)!! He is a mountaineer and he won't be anything else. It's his passion and every man in his family is the same. He comes from a legacy of excellence where he wants to follow in his father's footsteps. Only one teeny tiny problem. His ass is broke. No money for excursions, so he sucks it up and tries to get sponsors. HA!!!! I loved his initial reaction to having a sponsor. I loved the relationship he has between his self and his PA's. He literally seemed like the Grinch most of the book. Here's where the author excelled for me. I like that he has these feelings and recognized what they were. He didn't immediately push Aidan away for fear of rejection. Sure he never talked about it, but I think for H-G just being able to converse with someone else was enough for him to fall in love. That's the message I atleast got from it. I don't think he was so hung up on Aidan's looks more as being able to be himself with Aidan.Aidan was great as well. Talk about taking the bull by the horns and going for it. When Zeb brought him this proposition sure he was scared but the excelled at the subterfuge of it all. I can see where he was falling for H-G and having the hardship of lying to him as well. Yes, he lied about who he was. You get that in the blurb, it shouldn't be a surprised. I really enjoyed seeing him with his friends. Titus is the best ever!! He had my favorite line out the entire story. I loved seeing them together. I'm a huge sucker for age-gap and this one worked perfectly to me. I wouldn't mind seeing these two in the future or revisiting this world some time.This is a high recommend for me. It was just a good reading day I presume. It's low-angst, heavy on the attraction, witty, and really good. I definitely enjoyed it and can't wait to read more by this author!.

    This is the first time I read a book about mistaken identity. Well, I seen plenty in movies, but I wonder how will it works out here. Aidan who is Zeb's twin, decided to help his supermodel brother to assume his identity and go on a date with a popular mountaineer, Dominic. Dominic is a non-nonsense, gruff and lack of social etiquette of a brute. The last thing he needs is to date a diva model for a PR stunt. But when he meet Zeb, who is in fact, Aidan, he didn't expect to be attracted to the charming yet shy man who love the nature as much as he does. I find the romance started off good with some great potential. Both Aidan and Dominic are characters that I felt connected to. But their romance didn't quite able to develop past the level of initial attraction. We get to know much about their past, their hopes and their vulnerabilities. But all that were only going on in their head. They didn't communicate much besides the likes and dislikes. Even their weeks of dating was mentioned briefly without much details. Mistaken identity is something that might only happen in fiction, but I'm okay with the suspense disbelief. I can even imagine that they lead different lives that doesn't cross path. But for the twin not having any friends, beside one Lukas, who know they have a twin is unbelievable. Let's not let me start on the sex. One time only, really? Don't be so selfish here. I need more love, as in more making love. More sex. More getting down and dirty. To me, I enjoy the story for the most part. But as I said, it started off good, but it sorta just ended with a HEA before the romance really had a chance to develop. I feel like I only read half the story.

    3.5 Stars“Romancing the Wrong Twin” is a fun and sweet book with a serious case of deliberate mistaken identities. I had fun reading this story which is a little outrageous but entertaining. Aidan is a struggling playwright trying to make his mark in London theater. His efforts have not been successful in a long time but he has not lost hope. But hope does not help pay the bills and Aidan is in serious need of funds if he wants to keep his fridge stocked. When his twin, supermodel, Zeb Z asks him for a favor, Aidan is a little wary. It seems Aidan has to impersonate his brother and go out on a date with celebrity mountaineer, Dominic Hartington-George for one night. It’s just a PR thing and Zeb needs his brother to take his place. Aidan reluctantly agrees to the charade but it’s just for one night, right?? So where’s the harm? Dominic is a professional mountaineer who is in serious need of a sponsor if he wants to go to his next mountaineering venture. His image is not something which can rake in the sponsors. Combine that with his ever present scowl and you can say that Dom is not a media darling. So his PR firm comes up with the brilliant idea for him to go on a date with the gorgeous Zeb Z. Dom is of course not interested but he gives in as he has no other choice. His and Zeb’s worlds are miles apart as well as their personality so he is not sure if it will not end in a disaster. But Zeb turns out to be completely different than what he expected. He connects with Z and is attracted to him so Dom definitely wants more. But is he really falling for Zeb or for someone he has no idea exists?? Read to find out.I liked the flow of the book. The character development as well as the plot was nicely done. I liked the relationship development between Zeb and Dominic. There was no angst as such. The situations where Aidan had to act like his completely opposite brother was hilarious and a little outrageous but fun nonetheless. And that photo-shoot, wow!!! I was really feeling bad for Aidan. At lease he got those sexy blue shorts in the bargain and the gruff, mountain man in his bed so it was a win win.I would have really enjoyed it more if the charade came off before Aidan and Dom got naked together. I thought there will be angst coz of that and then an HEA but the reveal came almost at the end. It was dramatic what with it happening in front of the whole media but everything was resolved nicely at the end. I just found it a little unreal for the media to not know if a famous, media-darling supermodel has an identical twin. I don’t think in this age that is even possible. Also, how come Aidan’s friends never guessed why he looked like a supermodel? (it’s like superman: People only recognized him when he is wearing the suit and no one thought that the nerdy reporter with the same face could be the guy*eye-roll*) Anyways this story has a fun concept with enjoyable primary and secondary characters so I had fun reading it. Completely opposite twins exchanging places sounds like a ton of mischief and that’s what we got in addition to a brand new romance between two guys who never would have met otherwise. I would recommend this book to those who love to read a low-angst book and enjoy reading about how “opposites attract”.

    This was utterly charming: Sweet, funny, sexy. What I love about this series is how the books have fun with these far-fetched tropes, while grounding the stories with authentic, sympathetic character moments. Though the premise of how Dom and Aiden/Zeb get together is ridiculous, nothing could feel more realistic than their attraction and chemistry. Also, the modeling scene was priceless and I loved the London setting.Bottom Line: winner.

    This book was really awful, in my opinion. It was choppy, the characters were disconnected with stilted dialogue and awkward sex. The plot was nonsense and it read a little like a farce with random people popping up unrelated to anything. The MC's couldn't even be arsed to try to talk and work things out. I couldn't follow the big reveal scene (the mother coming out of nowhere?). It was not my cup of tea.

    Deliciously OTT (suspend your disbelief) shenanigans when one twin stands in for the other one, who happens to be a famous model, while pseudo-dating a gruff mountain climber for publicity and funding.Dominic, the mountain man, is a mountain of a man, with lots of hair all over, which appeals quite a bit to Aidan, the non-famous twin, who's a struggling playwright doing his brother a huge favor.Posing as Zeb Z., Aidan goes on one reluctant date that then turns into more dates, and slowly but surely falls for the mountain man. Dominic, so wary of the celebrity model, finds that Aidan (Zeb) is much deeper than expected, and slowly but surely falls as well.Except then the funding comes through, and Dominic sets out to climb the Eiger, and Aidan thinks he's been dismissed and their budding romance is over.I really loved reading this book. It has the fake relationship trope, which is so well done here, and also uses the twin factor to score extra points. Lots of dry humor and snark in this book as well, which really appeals to me, and some funny moments when Aidan has to do things Zeb would do, and feels completely out of his depth. Zeb and Aidan were very different people, but also very supportive of each other. Aidan wanted to make it on his own, and refused his brother's offers of money, which made me like him more. And Dominic is, while gruff on the outside, starting to show a softer side when he's with Aidan, something he doesn't let many people see. He's a grinchy Grinch, but his heart grows three sizes in this book. His long-suffering PA and her assistant don't know what to do with a Dominic who smiles and laughs.There's also a bit of a side plot that might turn into another book, what with Zeb and his agent, but we'll see if the author goes that route.Seriously, this was a ton of fun, but it also had its quiet and somewhat angsty moments. There's a scene toward the end, when Dominic sees something that sets him off, which then sets in motion a sequence of events leading to the happily ever after. Like I said in one of my updates - oh what a tangled web we weave when first we set out to deceive. But they get their happy ending, because this is a romance after all.The writing is fabulous, and the story flows without any lulls or time jumps. The book was over before I knew it, and I was kind of sad that it ended.An excellent addition to the Dreamspun Desires series. This book is well worth your time.** I received a free copy of this book from its publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. **

    "Romancing the Wrong Twin" is the tale of a grumpy hairy mountaineer and a struggling playwright with a Harlequin-esque twist involving twins. Sure it's improbable but it's a delight to buy into the trope and enjoy this deliciously sexy story.It's simple really - Dominic Hartington-George needs money to finance his mountaineering expedition to Eiger, and Aidan needs funds to support his struggling group of players. In order to raise his profile for potential investors, Dominic needs to be seen out and about with an A-list celeb - someone like supermodel Zeb B. But when Zeb B is double-booked for a promotional event, he bulldozes his twin brother Aidan into impersonating him in exchange for the hefty fee. Aidan, "the more timid twin, a quiet, creative, deep-feeling man" is out of his depth with the charade but quickly finds himself drawn to Dominic's "Hairy skin. Strong arms. Warm, muscular thighs. Oh fuck." as well as the man behind the grumpy rough exterior. The spark between them bursts into flames during a oh-my-god-steamy underwear photo shoot and the chemistry between the two is ridiculously hawt.The story clips along at a steady pace as we get both Dominic and Aidan's POV until the very satisfactory ending with a big reveal. This was a fun read and a really enjoyable twist on a romance novel trope. I received an ARC of this book from Dreamspinner Press in exchange for an honest review.Review also posted at Gay Book Reviews - check it out!

    Asked by his brother Zeb, to fill in for him on a date, Aiden meets the gruff Dominic, who is also going on the date for publicity and to drum up sponsorship.Adien thinks he is going out with the real Zeb, supermodel and has no idea that it is in fact his twin.Trouble is that the two get along really well and start to fall in love.An interesting book which I liked well enough. I thought Dom took the reveal at the end of the book well.A nice way to pass a couple of hours.

    ‘Romancing the Wrong Twin’ attracted my attention because twins and the identity confusion they can cause fascinate me. Just imagining the potential chaos if someone fell for the “wrong” one had me look forward to reading this book, and since one twin is an outgoing model and the other a shy playwright, a major mess was sure to erupt. But when, in chapter one, I discovered exactly how gruff and anti-social mountaineer Dominic is, the man who is supposed to improve his image by dating famous model Zeb, I began to smile. And I have to admit, as much as I felt for the characters and their evolving emotions, the overriding sense I got was the perfectly lighthearted humor and the sweetness of the romance between Dominic and Aidan – the wrong twin according to Dominic’s PR person, but the right twin according to Dominic’s heart.If you like stories about twins and the confusion they can cause if they decide to exchange places, if you want to see what happens when a solitary mountaineer loses his heart, and if you’re looking for an entertaining, sweet romance with lots of hilarious moments and great emotional upheaval – in the best sense, then you will probably enjoy this novel as much as I did.NOTE: This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review.

    4 HeartsIt’s no secret I am a hopeless romantic. I am in love with love. It’s also no secret that I adore the holy heck out of the Dreamspun Desire series and I am so addicted it could be scary if the stories weren’t so much fun. This is definitely one of my favorites from the series and that is a tough thing to say. I love the series but when you have The Twin Switch trope then add in one gruff and grumpy bear of a mountaineer I am a goner for the pairing and this story was so much fun. Dominic is a mountaineer from a family with history dating back the Tudors. Usually a family with that sort of lineage would have money to spend but sadly for Dom, it’s been exhausted and he has a huge trip, the Hartington Hike project, he wants to fund. The trip is one that follows in his late father’s trail, as he was also a mountaineer, and a homage to the expeditions that would take his father from home. It’s a melancholy and yet strong reason for Dom to want to complete this trek of Eiger, but Dom needs money. When his PR company suggests he get a few sponsors and be more out in the public eye aka out and about for the paparazzi, they find the perfect “date” for Dom in the form of model Zeb Z. Zeb is unfortunately unavailable but he has an identical twin named Aidan who is struggling playwright and director in need of cash flow to get his troupe of actors to a respectable stage. When Zeb calls asks him to take a contract job for him that he cannot be home for, Aidan agrees because he needs the cash but Aidan gets more than he bargained for. I adored this from the moment we meet both characters. I appreciate that the book has alternate POV’s and that we get each of the in chapter blocks with the start so we have a chance to get to know both of them before they meet and oh when they meet! The reaction of both men was adorable and their impromptu kitchen meal simply set the tone for the story for romance and intimacy.Yes, I know that Aidan is lying to Dominic about who he is but really only in name and in real life that is so shameful yet in my romance, it’s a great setup for a wonderful story. I am going to go against my normal and try not to ramble. I adored the hell out of Dom and love that he bucked the stereotype of the gruff bead a few times. But oh that ONE TIME just about did me in and made me give a Judd Nelson at the end of The Breakfast Club fist pump because it was so sexy and vulnerable and just plain UNF! And UNF again because it’s deserving. I loved Aidan and how he struggled with wanting to tell Dom but needing to keep the charade of character up for his twin who is off dealing with his own dilemmas while falling for Dom in so many ways. The men were a pure joy to read and fall in love with and just turn into goo over and over again and then feel the angst of it all waiting for the perfect moment of declaration. Sigh. Yeah, Romancing the Wrong Twin was the perfect read for a brisk Saturday morning in bed. It made me laugh, cringe, swoon and just really fall head over heels for the story.

    I read pretty much have read every Dreamspun Desires book in Dreamspinner Press’s series. There’s over 20 so far and Romancing the Wrong Twin is my favorite of this collection to date. Clare London has written not just a terrific love story but an engaging and unique one. Sure, the twin thing has been written a hundred ways but Clare really made this her own. Twins, one a super model the other a playwright. One well known the other not known at all. Zeb and Aiden are identical physically but mentally are beyond different. When Zeb can’t do a promotional stunt he begs his twin to do it… and he does. Because there wouldn’t be a story if he didn’t.Here’s where the unique part comes in. It’s in the form of the other MC, Dom! He’s a mountaineer! He’s a celebrity mountaineer but his character is financially struggling. He’s a bear of a man, hairy and grumpy. Aiden is younger, more effeminate, and overall has a positive outlook… sort of.These two, on the outside, look like they will clash horribly. But you know what they say; opposites attract!I was really happy with how the truth came to be and the resolve. I was happy to see the ending wasn’t rushed and that the author really played out each scene so well. If you’re a fan of the Dreamspun Desires series this one will be a sure favorite for you!

    Another solid contribution to the Dreamspun Desires line. The twin gambit really takes me back to the romance I read before. Definitely a bit of suspension of belief is needed, but the characters felt real. I wanted more to Aiden, though.

    This is a feel good, low angst sweet romance. Kind of the one I like to read from time to time to lightened my mood after a bad book, or high angst book. And usually worked for me.This one is no exceptional. The title alone caught my interest, the wrong twin couldn't be so right to romance right?Because, 'the wrong' one usually is 'the right' one for you. Ha! Am I right, or right?Losing his finance to climb a mountain again, a celebrity mountaineer Dom, need a new funding to start climbing again, so he have to agree to his manager to date someone, a super model, Zeb Z (gee, what a name). But Zeb can't fulfill the deal that his manager already dealt with Dom's manager.Oh, I'm not envy with all these celebrity life...Luckily, Zeb is having a twin brother. An identical one! But Aidan is a closet twin (I have no idea that there's twin in the closet). So the arrangement with the wrong twin has been made.And the sparkles between Aidan (as Zeb) and Dom was there from the start. But I often wanted to yell at them, especially Aidan to come clear with Dom, about who he really is, after the feeling grew and 'before' the sex happened. But no! These guy need to take a communication skill class for God sake!But, this is a dreamspun kinda story, so, we don't need too many heartache to see them happy and solved their problem (easily I can say). With a little jealousy and one blue underwear and a little chat, everything's done.Oh! And the blue underwear? It plays a big deal in their relationship. You'll see :)Romancing the Wrong Twin is entertaining, fun and cute for a light read. Recommended!* I received the ARC from Dreamspinner Press for a fair an unbiased review. No high rating required*

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.25 starsOverall, I wasn’t too enamored of this book. London clearly puts a lot of effort into describing the characters, and the plot is well-crafted. For the first three-quarters of the book, I didn’t get the impression the action and behaviors of the various players was forced. That said, there were a couple of glaring inconsistencies. For example, once Aidan has to start interacting with people who think he is Zeb, Aidan begins to behave more assertively, with more confidence and strength. When the shit hits the fan at the end of the book, however, the narrator states that “Aidan had rarely seen his twin so authoritative.”Another was a potential plot twist that I admit, I was excited about. The reason Zeb cannot do the appearance with Dominic is because his wrangler/manager has to go to Switzerland for a medical treatment. While the real Zeb is off in Switzerland, we learn that Dominic (with funding for his climb secured) will be going to Switzerland for conditioning. I was all squee! just knowing that this is how the whole Zeb/Aidan thing was going to get blown sky high! Except, nothing happened. Dominic went to Switzerland, climbed the mountain, and came back to great praise for a job well done. There big reveal happened in a wholly different manner. What bothers me about this is that London bothers to send Zeb/agent to Switzerland…which seems odd, even for characters based in England, to then not use that to help push the story’s conflict.Read Veronica’s review in its entirety here.

    This felt more “tongue in cheek” than some of the other Dreamspun Desires books. Both MCs felt a bit more like caricatures than authentic people, though they were fun and interesting.I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of the melding between the supposed model and the mountaineer – that definitely wasn’t the focus. Most of this was the banter between two pretty cantankerous individuals and then battling the paparazzi. It’s very British and I love that! I also really liked the soft approach to dealing with Dom’s father issues. I never got a great feel for Aidan and what he wanted/needed, and I wish we could have spent more time with him and Dom as a couple where everything was laid out and honest. (Especially before the “ILYs”)It was a fun and funny story with some clever and unique plot twists but I wasn’t as compelled by the romance between these two than I had been in other Dreamspun books. I’d recommend it for a fun/funny read – especially if you love British humor!3.5 of 5 stars

    I loved this opposite pair with more in common than they first thought. Gruff straight-down-the-line Dominic, and Aiden, dressed up as Zed, wanting to be himself, falling for the wrong boy. It's predictable romance, but really well written and a satisfying conclusion.Enjoyable and fun.

    The theater meets the mountain. This is a delightful Urban English Romance featuring a playwright and a mountaineer. *Spoiler Alert*Aiden is a struggling playwright and Zeb, his twin brother, is a fashion model. Aiden was promised that he could write and produce his own play but, at the last minute, they cancel on him. Being depressed and low on funds, his twin, Zeb, approachs Aiden to pose as him on a date with a mountaineer, Dominic.Dominic follows in his father's footsteps and climbs mountains, but he has used up his inheritance and now is in need of a sponsorship to climb one last time. His PR people propose that he is seen with Zeb for publicity to gain sponsorship funds.Aiden, acting as Zeb, and Dominic go to a movie premiere and then dinner. At dinner Aiden and Dominic kiss and the paparazzi interrupt them which causes Aiden to freak out and run out of there.Aiden and Dominic seek each other out to apologize. For the next two weeks they go on publicity dates. Things are going very well until Aiden is spotted by Zeb's agent's assistant and is called in to do a rush photoshoot. With Dominic in tow, they do the photoshoot.The photoshoot makes Dominic very hot and bothered for Aiden. They end up going back to Dominic's place and do what they've been longing to do.One morning, while Aiden sleeps over at Dominic's, Dominic gets a call from his agent for him and Zeb to come over to her office at 2pm. There they meet the sponsors for Dominic's trip. All goes well and they sponsor Dominic. Dominic's agent says that they now don't have to be together anymore. They can go their own way. Which they do. Dominic leaves on his trip.Dominic is so preoccupied on his trip. Thinking about Aiden constantly. Longing for him. At the same time, Aiden tries to write and it proves difficult because his emotions are so up and down regarding Dominic, but his friends notice and question his behavior. One of them figures it out.Aiden's friend gets them in to the presentation that Dominic and his crew are putting on. Dominic sees something he shouldn't and eventually he confronts Aiden and chaos happens and confusion. The reporters and photographers are kicked out of the room and everything is explained and everyone gets their happy ending.This is a wonderful Urban English Romance. After the slow start in the beginning of the book, it got interesting. One twin posing as the other and going out on a blind date. That alone is very interesting and can lead to all kinds of mischief. The only transgression going on was inside Aidan's head. He was very uncomfortable playing his twin brother. The character development was so good that I felt sorry for Aiden and I could really feel what he was feeling. I also loved how the author gave the background of the main characters in snippets as opposed to all at once.Aiden and Dominic are perfect for each other. It was like light and dark or grumpy and romantic. Dominic acts all rough and tough but Aiden can see right through him and answers each parry with one of his own. It was fun and exciting to read.This book is also told from both main character's points of view. A little of one then a little from the other. I really liked that.I felt like this story was like watching a drama movie. You really got into the characters, what was going on, and it kept you hooked in and on the edge of your seat. This story also flowed like a movie. It had twists and turns so you never saw what was coming. It also had a perfect balance. Not too much of one thing or the other.The ending was great. I was expecting something totally different and the author really surprised me. It was a real sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat ending. I do recommend this book for those who love a setting in England, who can read and appreciate the English slang and speak, and who love big burly Mountaineers and lovely fashion models.I received this book in exchange for my honest review by Gay Book Reviews.

    “Being a twin is not always easy... I may look like my brother, But I am one of a kind.I want to be noticed for the person that's me. My brother is special too. Why can't we both be?… Unique and separate spirits defending each other. We share much in common. It's easy to see - I am not my brother And he is not me.” ~ Michelle Salazar (Twin Brothers)Most of the time, honesty may be the best policy, but nothing is carved in stone. What if you are doing the wrong thing for the right reason? In 'Romancing the Wrong Twin' by Clare London, Aiden pretends to be his twin brother, Zeb, because he needs to be somewhere else and doesn't want to explain the situation. Unfortunately, the charade goes on for far longer than either twin intended, leading to unexpected consequences.Although identical genetically, Aiden and Zeb are very different people. Aiden is a college educated, starving actor/playwright who guards his privacy. He is still waiting for his big break into the business. His flamboyant twin is a top model who adores being in the public eye. When Zeb begs Aiden to take his place, Aiden loves him enough not to ask questions and sort of begrudgingly agrees. Aiden has seen his outgoing brother flounce around enough to pretend to be more like him. Dressed in Zeb's clothes, Aiden goes to his brother's assignment, being a date for a famous photographer/mountain climber named Dominick. Dominick is soliciting for financing for his next mountain climbing expedition and hoping to get it from an LGBT company named We Will Survive, thus the arranged date with a very popular gay male model, Zeb.Dominick is not the easiest person to get along with and is not thrilled to have to pretend to be enamored by a man who he's already decided he won't like. Dominick thinks his date will be high-maintenance, flighty, and an airhead and will have no interest in who Dominick is and what he does. Right away, Dominick sets Aiden off with his domineering presence and when Aiden balks at being treated in such a manner, Dominick is surprised and attempts to curve his aggressive behavior. Dominick is also wrong when he expects that Aiden won't be interested in good food and he's especially taken back when Aiden seems to be not only interested in his mountain climbing ventures, but knowledgeable as well. What is supposed to be a one-time thing drags on much longer than expected. Aiden tries to treat it like a job, but before he or Dominick know it, they are in much deeper than either intended to be. Due to their skewed understanding of the situation, neither knows how the other feels. When the “mission” is accomplished and Dominick has his funding, he wrongly assumes that their association has come to an end as well. Hurt but trying to be realistic, Aiden says his good-byes and good lucks and takes a cab home.Clare's characters are always full-bodied, often eccentric, and multifaceted. She makes them come alive in such an expressive way that I can't help but sympathize with their predicaments, as well as appreciate that, like me, they are human and their judgement is not always the best. Even though I was expecting a happy ending, Clare put an impressive twist on the climax while working out things in an effective manner. Clare's characters show tremendous growth as well. By pretending to be Zeb, Aiden saw himself in a different light. This made him realize that, although he is different, there are ways he could be more assertive. Clare also held a mirror up to Zeb that enabled him to view himself differently as well, take life more seriously, and discover what was most important to him. Thanks, Clare! I thoroughly enjoyed this light, entertaining story with just the right amount of angst to add more depth.NOTE: This book was provided by Dreamspinner Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    ♥.•*¨)☆♡¸.•*´¨)☆♡¸.•♥*´¨)☆♡♥♡☆(¸.•♥´ Honey, I have a favor to ask.Struggling to make it in the theater district, Aiden found himself playing puppeteer to his rambunctious twin brother, popular model Zeb Z. One date with the antisocial, scowling man Zeb referred to as Hairy Guy, that was all it would take to help both Zeb and the mountaineer out. No hardship on Aiden's part, considering his slight crush on Dom. Dominic Hartington-George only wanted recognition as his father's child. He had been chasing that dream forever, and now that his father was gone, doing one last climb would place him in path he needed. Unfortunately, he was almost penniless and needed backing. Being asked to be seen about town with another man was supposed to be for one night. But Dom found himself unable to resist the younger man. The chemistry was sizzling and they found themselves coming back time and again. But when the deception is uncovered, that Dom was romancing the wrong twin, it will take more than chemistry to set it all right. A slow start, I almost DNF, put I trudged on and took one for the team. Turns out the author was only getting her feet wet until these guys met and then the gloves were off. Low angst, good heat with a twist (yeah, LOVED that one) and 4 hairy stars.I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from Dreamspinner Press.Reviewed by Cee from Alpha Book Club

    Fake boyfriends, twins switching places, a sweet struggling writer/director matched up with a gruff mountain man...yeah, there was no way I was going to not read this. What I got was a fun, entertaining story with a nice dash of heat and just the right touch of angst, something I can easily recommend to any M/M romance fan out there.My favorite character was so easy to pick for this story--Aidan gets this, hands down. He's so sweet, fiercely independent, and just wants to do the right thing by everyone involved. I loved watching him come out of his shell when filling in for his brother-it really built his own confidence-and found myself with my fingers crossed hoping that the whole pretending-to-be-his-brother act wouldn't totally doom things between him and Dominic. As for Dom, yes he's a bit gruff and bear-like (in every way LOL)-he speaks his mind and doesn't care how he gets his point across. And while that might not bode well for him socially, he is blatantly honest and forthright. He and Aidan might seem like a mismatch, but they actually complement each other quite well.The whole twin-switch thing puts a lot of strain on Aidan, and the fake boyfriends act puts a bit of strain on both Aidan and Dom...which of course makes for the angst in the story and the drama once everything comes out. But it also makes you not want to put the book down either.Romancing the Wrong Twin was a very enjoyable read, and it's the perfect fit for the Dreamspun Desires series. It's the first book I've read by this author, and it has me intrigued enough to be adding more of her works to my TBR list for the future. 4 solid stars for this story, and I recommend this to all M/M romance readers 18+ (for adult language and M/M sexual content).

    What happens when you think you are dating one person only to find out that you were actually dating his twin brother instead? Do you think everything was a game? Do you stay and forgive the lies? Aiden is not as confident in himself as he should be. Aiden knows his twin brother is successful in his modeling career and he would never want to live Zeb's lifestyle and career choice. I also think that if both Aiden and Zeb would both acknowledge their connection out in the public then both men would have a happier life and I think that Aiden would feel much more confident in himself with out having to hide part of who he is. Zeb is very important to him and their twin connection is important for both men. Dom is this gruff mountain man who does not always think before he opens his mouth. So there is things that come out the wrong way. Regardless Dom is also a loyal, caring individual who would do anything for the person he loves. The last thing he wants to do is be like his father who cared more about his expedition's instead of those he is supposed to love and put first in his life. When Aiden pretends to be Zeb to help Zeb out, the last thing that he expected was to meet Dom and to actually fall in love with him. Even more, the last thing beyond that that he expected was to have Dom fall for "Zeb".
