Release Day Review! SCORING WITH THE WRONG TWIN by Naima Simone (WAGS #1)

About the Book:

Shy, awkward Sophia Cruz has a hard time telling her vivacious identical twin “no.” But when her sister begs her to swap places for a modeling shoot, she caves … again. Then Zephirin Black walks onto the set. The brooding, aloof, and gorgeous tight end for the Washington Warriors. But she can keep it professional… She has to. Because the adorkable Cruz twin has no luck with guys once they compare her to her sister.
After a bad break-up, Zeph hasn’t been big on second chances—and even less with trust. But he finds himself giving please-call-me-by-my-middle-name-Sophia both. The woman he’d dismissed as a spoiled cover model is different from the first time he met her. Quirkier. Funnier. Definitely sexier. What started as one night turns into another…and another…and another…
Still, Sophia can’t go on keeping her secret from him. But telling Zeph the truth will mean losing him for good.

Phew–this is one read sure to warm up the coldest winter day!

I really liked Sophia and Zephrin’s story. (My only regret? We didn’t “meet” his grandma in person–just over the phone…no doubt Ms. Simone was afraid she’d take over the book, LOL) The whole identical-twin-switching places story can be fun when done well (probably because we’ve all secretly wished for an identical twin to switch with, at least once–amiright?), and this one, fortunately, was done well. Even if I did spend three-quarters of the book yelling at her to “Just tell him already!” I get why she didn’t, and it’s hard to blame her.

I mean, you see that cover, right? And somehow the description inside–especially when coupled with his personality–makes him even hotter. I know it shouldn’t be possible, but trust me.

This one is the first in the WAGS series (Wives And GirlfriendS), and I cannot wait to see what Ms. Simone has in store for Zephrin’s teammates!

Rating: 4 stars / B+

Meet the Author:

USA Today Bestselling author Naima Simone’s love of romance was first stirred by Johanna Lindsey, Sandra Brown and Linda Howard many years ago. Well not that many.

She is only eighteen…ish. Though her first attempt at a romance novel starring Ralph Tresvant from New Edition never saw the light of day, her love of romance, reading and writing has endured. Published since 2009, she spends her days—and nights— writing sizzling romances with a touch of humor and snark.

She is wife to Superman, or his non-Kryptonian, less bullet proof equivalent, and mother to the most awesome kids ever. They all live in perfect, sometimes domestically-challenged bliss in the southern United States.
