Out of Love by Ruth Cardello My Review


Out of Love

by Ruth Cardello

Laughter and sparks set the stage for a fun romance from New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello about a farmer who switches places with his business-savvy twin brother and falls in love with the daughter of his brother’s biggest client.

I just found out I have an identical twin. I’d love the idea if he wasn’t an arrogant, overconfident businessman who is determined to save my farm even though I’m in no danger of losing it. When I agreed to switch lives with him, it was supposed to be for a couple of hours.

I was told to lie low, meet no one, and let him deal with the oil company that was sniffing around my property. I agreed to the switch only because it was the first time since we’d met that my twin had shown interest in my life, and I hoped it would give us a better understanding of each other.

Hours drag into days. I consider our initial agreement void and head to his office. I’m sitting at his desk, mostly minding my own business, when a beautiful woman blusters in, ready for a confrontation with my brother about an email. She’s the daughter of my brother’s largest client.

I only flirt with her to make her smile. What could it hurt to pretend to be my brother just a little longer?

I didn’t expect to uncover a plan to sabotage my brother’s company. I don’t want to believe that the woman I can’t get out of my thoughts and would love to get into my bed has anything to do with what I’ve discovered.

Save the company.

Save the girl.

I have no idea how I’ll do either, but when something is done out of love, it has to work out. 

And I thought. . . I was not sure how I would feel about this book.

. . . And now I already have book 1 and the promised book 3 on my my wish list!  

Although the author leaves the bedroom door open I was so involved with the story and characters that a few adjectives and verbs didn't really bother me. 

Now ya'll know what MaMa would have done. 

But my Jazzy Grandma was so much like Nicole's aunt that she would be adding those other titles  and a few more to her TBR pile!

The romance between Scott and Nicole did get off to a rocky start but they couldn't help liking each other and falling in love. 

There were definitely some 'crack me up' moments like when Nicole goes to Scott's farm and meets the animals.   Especially one that stole Nicole's heart. 

The book is the second in the series about 3 brothers.  It was easy to step in at book 2.   

All the characters are well developed.  And there are alot of them.  Including the 3 brothers.  Scott's adoptive parents, Nicole's, Nicole's dad, Jazzy aunt, Crystal who chooses Nicole for a bestie after they both become engaged to the twins. 

 And several more interesting people you will have to meet on your own.  

The ending . . .

. . . Well it ended with a bit of a cliffhanger leading into Thane the 3rd brothers romance. 

I kind of missed the Happily Ever After part for Scott and Nicole. 

I plan to read Jesse and Crystal 's romance.  And Thanes when it is released . 

I received my a complimentary copy from Harlequin and Netgalley. 

My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads.
