Jordan Ware has always had Wild West fantasies. But she's more Jimmy Choo than Tony Lama. Until her long-lost twin sister arrives...

...and they switch places! Jordan heads to Santa Fe. And ends up bunking down with her twin's hunky fiancé!

Cash Landry has never met a woman like Jordan. A whole heap of trouble has followed this city girl on her Western adventure. Still, Cash won't have any trouble protecting her. But can he convince her to ride into the sunset with him for good?

My rating:

The back story is the same as in Twin Temptation: two sisters who never knew about the other are reunited after twenty-six years, but thanks to their mother's will have no time to get to know each other before having to spend 21 consecutive days in each other's shoes.

Now it's time for Jordan to live Maddie's life. A life that includes the hunky cowboy of a neighbor, Cash Landry. And while Cash and Maddie are just friends, Cash and Jordan are anything but friends...Again at night, before they even officially meet. But Cash isn't as quick on the uptake as Jase was.

So the author took the blazing attraction between h/H, and thrown in an attempted murder or two...And got an almost exact replica of her (aforementioned) previous book.

Again, the romance was rushed—sorry, but I just don't buy people falling madly, I-want-to-spend-my-lifetime-loving-you in love in two days. And to take the same initial nudge—making love while at least one of them thinks it's a dream, while they don't even know each other—isn't exactly the best way to start.

Though I complained about the first book's "indecision" about genres, it was the suspenseful edge that kept it flowing, and this is even more true about this one.
It was the mad race downhill with a van glued to the bumper, the old man allegedly falling half-way down a cliff, the vandalism on the ranch that kept me interested enough to even finish this story.
And the final reveal of the baddie was truly a surprise. Well done, Ms. Summers, maybe you should stick to suspense from now on.

Well, if you already own this book (or two books), you might go ahead and give it a try, but I'd recommend you rather read the two-book series from 2008 by Leslie Kelly: Slow Hands and Heated Rush. A much better (and romance-driven) reading experience.
