Hannah Benson lost all confidence in herself when she found her fiancé with another woman.
When she agrees to a fantasy night with a complete stranger, she doesn't bargain on Andy Bayes stepping in for his baby brother and stealing her heart. Andy's hot, gorgeous but Hannah is reluctant to risk falling in love again.
However, Andy has other plans for Hannah.
Boy! Talk about moving into the hot sex scenes from the get go -- this book will heat your blood up quick and make you wiggle in your seat for sure. Ms. Devereaux wasted no time in diving into the sex via a one-night stand with the wrong guy in the first chapter, which made me think this story would be hot erotica with no romance. However, I was wrong; there was plenty of romance between the two characters even if it moved fast. Thank goodness, I had the fan nearby and was able to turn it on while reading and trying to figure out just where the author was going with the plot.
Because this was a short story I knew things had to move along a little faster than a full length novel and I was enthralled enough to keep reading. The story line was inventive and sufficient enough to keep me wondering what was going to happen from one scene to the next. As the plot progressed, I was surprised at how enjoyable the story line was and found myself smiling at the secrets hidden and the banter between the two main characters, and was eager to see what would happen next. With all the hot sex, it was hard to put the book down because of the need to see just how Hannah’s fantasy night would turn out.
There were a number of cute sentences but the one I liked the most was: “You’re a criminal. You stole my heart.” which is especially romantic when the hero is a cop trying to get his girl to admit that she loved him to.
“Mistaken Identity” is a very enjoyable short story that will be great on those days when you want a short, smoking hot romance that you can finish in a few hours. Believe me, there are a lot of twists and turns that will pull you in and make you fall in love with the hero and heroine.
