I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.
Same hair color.
Except…I look harder.
At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh-that laugh isn’t as loud.
This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.
It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.
Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.
Rule of thumb: if your twin is nothing like you when it comes to your personality, don’t ask her to ‘take one for the team’ when she’s clearly your opposite in every way besides appearance because in the end, putting a pinch hitter in for something like being overbooked with two dates won’t pane out so well for all involved
I loved Dante Amado! He’s definitely muy caliente but what I love most about him is that he is characterized as an atypical jock; he’s more than a skirt chaser; it’s more than a ‘nice-guy’ routine when it comes to how Dante acts. He’s truly an honorable man who is conscientious and sincere. Every exchange he has with ‘Lucy’/Amelia is without pretense. He’s not just looking to ‘score’ with her…he’s looking for the real thing, and while he never thought Lucy would be the one he would be considering something with long-term, the Lucy he’s introduced to in the story is someone he just might be able to and want to take home to his Madre, which shows just how serious he is.
Amelia should just stick to being herself because she’s not very good at pretending to be her sister; she’s nothing like Lucy when it comes to guys and even life in general, which is a good thing because Dante wants the Lucy 2.0 version, which means that when Amelia acts like herself when she’s with him, that’s the one he wants to claim as his.
I loved Amelia and Dante – Lucy, not so much, but I think that was intentional on Sara Ney’s part to prove just how opposite the twins are and why Dante could so easily see the subtle differences between the two and found the first one rather lacking in all the areas that mattered to him.
I did wish that Switch Hitter was a bit longer; I felt like I was just introduced to the idea of Dante and Amelia as a couple and then their story ended. I wanted and needed more of this sweet and sexy pair, not necessarily their happily ever after or even their happily ever right now, but just more than the three dates readers witnessed.
I’m so excited for this new series by Sara Ney…and, with the little tease we got for book one, I can’t wait to see how Ney gives the ‘fun police’ a guy she deserves.
