Series: WAGS Book #1

Stand Alone Title: yes
Author:  Naima Simone

Genre: Romance, Contemporary

Blurb: 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.

Favorite quote(s): “I want you.  I want to suck on that full, sexy-a$@ bottom lip, taste you, touch you.  It’s taking everything in me not to pull you on this counter, pull down those jeans, and bury myself inside you until you come, screaming my name.”

Thoughts: With Scoring With The Wrong Twin, you feel the initial sparks between Sophia and Zeph immediately, and that is just one of the things I loved about this book.  Honestly, I would have enjoyed it just as much without the whole ‘wrong twin’ aspect to it, because the story and the attraction between these characters is enough.  The whole ‘twin’ angle though doesn’t take over the whole book, and it doesn’t play out the whole way your typical ‘wrong twin’ storyline goes.  There is no ‘good twin’ and ‘bad twin’, just two women who happen to look alike and have a bond – they are not out to sabotage one another or hurt anybody, just one sister helping another.  Sophia, too, is as honest as she can be about who she really is without blowing her sister’s cover.

Both characters are a little love leery – but especially Zeph, and therein lies the crux and the angst of the story.  Sophia, of course, lets the lie go on too long, but it’s not just her secret to share, and her sister has more at stake than she does if their deception is revealed.  Oh, what a tangled web we weave!  It’s a great journey to see these two fall in love with each other and work things out.  Great read by this author!
