Hero: Cash Davenport – Bar Owner, Bad Boy Twin 
Hero: Nash Davenport – Lawyer, Responsible Twin
Setting: USA



Olivia Townsend has a plan. Her plan is to graduate from college and go back home to help her father run his business. Her plan does not include meeting two hot identical twins. While at a bachelorette party in a club, she mistook the owner of the club, Cash, for being the stripper and slowly began to undress him. And he let her. Embarrassed to find out he was not the stripper, she hoped to never see him again, even if this sexy guy made her pulse pound and her head spin. The next morning she walks into her kitchen and sees the same guy sitting there. However, after embarrassing herself again, she finds out he is Cash’s identical twin brother, Nash. What’s worse, she finds herself wildly attracted to not only Cash but to Nash as well. This is not part of her agenda. She does not need these two men distracting her from moving forward with her plans. But, to her dismay, she can’t seem to stop thinking about either guy. Little did she know, the life she knows, is about to completely change.

“I feel like all of a sudden, my life is a train wreck. And most of the wreckage revolves around two guys. Two guys that, for totally different reasons, are tearing me up inside. Two guys I want. Two guys I can’t have. Two guys I can’t stop thinking about.”

Cash is the epitome of all bad boys – flirty, sexy, tattooed, rides a bad-ass motorcycle, and owns a club. He is everything Olivia is determined to stay away from since her past relationships with bad boys all ended badly. However, in desperate need to work closer to home and make more money, Cash hires her as a bartender at his club. Where Olivia has no choice but to see Cash. Often. Resisting the rebellious bad boy is becoming harder and harder with every moment she spends with him.

Nash is the opposite of Cash. He’s the responsible twin on his way to becoming a successful lawyer. Olivia is attracted to not only his good looks but also to the idea that he is steady and dependable. Someone she can take home to daddy. But he’s dating her cousin and roommate, Marissa. Not willing to chance the wrath from her bitchy, mean cousin, she decides it would be a good idea to stay away from Nash. Plus, it would be a bad idea for Nash to cheat on his boss’ daughter. Unfortunately, the attraction between Nash and Olivia is unavoidable, and doing what is right is becoming harder the more time they spend together.

Olivia, Olivia, Olivia, I would love to be in your shoes. But to Olivia, this is confusing and frustrating. Her mind says Nash – if he was single. But her body and heart says Cash. How on earth did she get in this situation? She just wants to finish school and go home to help her father. My first thought when she realized she was not only attracted to both men, but she wants both of them was, “Try them both out and see which one is better in bed!” I know…I’m bad. What’s even funnier, her friend Ginger gave her the same advice. See, I’m not alone in this logical thinking. It would be easy to judge Olivia for flirting and kissing both men, who are brothers, but she sees something in both of them that makes up the perfect guy she’s always wanted. Nash is the good guy—dependable, successful, respectable and someone Olivia could rely on. But Cash, he is the bad boy—rebellious, cocky, and wickedly charming. And they are both incredibly gorgeous. They each have traits that Olivia is very attracted too. Who does she choose?

And, to top it off, the chemistry between Nash, Olivia, and Cash is unbelievably sexy. HOT. This book was seriously loaded with scorching hot sex scenes. My Kindle was on fire.

His hands are hungry and urgent as he grabs me around the waist and turns to lay me on the bed. We undress each other as though we’ve never made love, as though this is the first time and we can’t wait one more second to feel skin on skin.

When he enters me, my whole world collapses. It melts and covers us as he moves within me, like a perfect crystalline cocoon .

Not knowing who Olivia was going to choose, and the sexual tension that built up as the story progressed, was exciting. Titillating. There is one part of the story where I felt exasperated because I wanted to know so badly who Olivia was with. Okay, I admit, I rolled my eyes at this part. I would’ve at least turned on the light! I know this sounds vague but it’s a great little scene in the book that will leave you baffled and frustrated because you don’t know which twin was in this scene.

And yes, there is a shocking twist at the end that will make you do a double take. This changes everything. Readers don’t go looking for spoilers or it will ruin the fun when the secret is finally revealed!

Down to You is funny, sexy, exciting and hard to put down. I was so engrossed in the story that I read it in one day. The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger but I just chalked that up to another part of the story. It didn’t really bother me. Mostly it just made me excited to find out there will be a second book.
