Down to you cover



The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?


My Review:

So this is a title that I’ve had on my to-read shelf for entirely too long and was so excited to FINALLY get to it and I loved it!  Talk about one hell of a story!

Olivia Townsend is stuck living with her uppity cousin, Marissa, and hoping to finish up school and her accounting degree quickly so she can get back to her father and their farm.  She misses her old life and she hates dealing with her snooty cousin.  One thing she doesn’t mind is catching glimpses of her cousin’s uber attractive boyfriend, Nash.  Talk about yum.  Nash is a young, sexy, law student working for Marissa’s father’s firm and is, unfortunately, taken and totally off-limits.  Lucky for Olivia, Nash has a twin brother, Cash who is very much available.  The only thing standing in Olivia’s way is that Cash is a bad-boy bar owner and she has sworn off the bad-boy type for good.  But soon enough, Olivia finds herself involved with both Cash and Nash.  She takes a job working in Cash’s bar and is fighting a losing battle against her attraction to him.  She’s also fighting the same losing battle against her attraction to Nash when she has to fill in for her cousin at an art gallery event.  Olivia finds herself wanting both men….but really, she wants a mash-up of the two.  If only Cash were more like Nash or if Nash were more like Cash…she would have her dream man.  What’s a girl to do?  Olivia sure has her work cut out for her….and just when she thinks she knows what to do, the brothers drop a HUGE bomb that will change everything.

Oh.  My.  Yum….this book was freaking fantastic.  Nash and Cash are equally delicious and like Olivia, I had a hard time deciding whom I liked best! Cash is the sexy bad-boy you know is nothing but trouble, but can’t help being attracted to.  Nash is the sexy intellectual that screams GQ.  Tough choice indeed! Olivia is hilarious.  Her personality is totally unique.  She’s got a sense of humor that had me laughing out loud too many times to count.  Her one-liners and quick-witted retorts are some of the best I’ve ever read.  I freaking love her!

There are sexy scenes in this book that are totally drool worthy and had me glued to the pages.  There is also a twist that I did NOT see coming…and damn, it made me “WHOA” out loud!  It added so much to the love triangle road we were traveling down and pulled us down a whole other direction.  Freaking fantastic!

If you’re looking for a hot and sexy read with a bunch of heroine snark and a twist that sneaks up behind you and bites you in the ass, then get this book on your list!  I loved it and can’t wait to start the next book and see what is in store for Olivia!

Thank you, Ms. Leighton, for a fantabulous read!
