Review

"A mistaken identity story that straddles the line between romance and chick lit." - RT Book Reviews 

From the Author

A Collateral Attraction was originally titled Collateral when it was first serialized on Wattpad where it was chosen as one of the top 5 romances to read by RT Book Reviews (August 2015).   I've always been interested in sibling dynamics, especially between twins and wanted write something that dealt heavily on chick-lit and women's fiction elements along with romantic suspense and mystery.

I'm hardly the target audience for this work but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it any less. No matter what your status is in life you can't choose your family and A Collateral Attraction does a masterful job of portraying that.

I wasn't sure of what to expect at the start but as the story went on I found there was more here than straight romance which I like and is a credit to Ms. Madrid's writing. I felt for all of the characters (even Blythe who I could take or leave at first). It was good to see how the characters overcame the obstacles beyond their control and the story played out realistically and didn't feel contrived in the slightest.

For that and for creating a set of dynamic characters this gets a solid four stars from this reader.

Billie and Blythe are identical twin sisters but so different in character and personality. A well written book with interesting characters. Lots of surprises and twists as we engage in mistaken identities, suspicion of murder, decades of lies, luxury, jet setting, sibling rivalry, billionaire brothers, family secrets, etc. This book is a page turner that will leave you wanting more.

I received an arc copy in return for an honest review, but also purchased a copy for my collection

There's family dysfunction on both sides of this love story. On one side, twins with long, seething resentments and one big secret. On the other, family secrets and the fate of a billion dollar company throws the offspring into a dangerous tizzy. As the characters collide and often spar, a number of issues are raised: adultery, betrayal, loyalty to family.

Blythe becomes a nightmare of a twin sister, making life hell for her twin Billie and herself. Heath, the billionaire brother of Blythe's love interest, becomes an unlikely ally and a willing hero.

Billie and Heath are perfect for each other. Denying love and attraction is never is never fun but Billie and Heath do just that...until they don't. Much of this story's charm comes from the full tangibility of the characters' feelings - the heights of their joy, the depths of their disappointments. Liz Madrid Carefully perceives the nuances of human Interaction, especially with those in love. Those tiny moments of truth feel honest and clear.

Read this one and enjoy.

Billie, a small-town California hippie girl is in New York to reunite with her fashionista twin sister, Blythe. Blythe wants to introduce Billie to her wealthy new boyfriend and lifestyle, but a running battle between the boyfriend and his brother drag the sisters into a sinister plot, in which they’re both expendable. Billie finds herself outfitted in designer clothes and jetting around the world with the brother, trying to save her sister from the looming disaster. It doesn’t help that Blythe is convinced Billie is trying to sabotage her.

Fast-paced and steamy, A Collateral Attraction illustrates the dangers of sibling rivalry, and the redemptive power of love.

What an incredibly exciting and fast paced story this was! I was intrigued by this being a story about identical twins that seemed to be polar opposites of each other. When the quiet one was taken and thought to be the more flamboyant twin, it only got more exciting. I was able to read this in it's developing stages on Wattpad, and I am so excited that it has been published! This story had me hooked from the beginning and I couldn't put it down. When you add brothers as love interests for both girls, it only gets better. This truly is an exceptionally great read and I thoroughly recommend it as she did an outstanding job of writing this. Fantastic story!!!!

Billie, the heroine, is possibly the most real character I've ever read. She's too damn proud, takes things to heart, is insecure and jealous and doesn't have a proper sense of direction. She trusts easily and holds grudges for a long time. She's incredibly self - righteous and doesn't really listen to others. She hasn't really moved on from the heartbreak she felt with her ex a few years ago and is afraid of relationships.

Yes, she is deeply flawed, but that's what makes her so real. I was really able to identify with her in most of the situations, something that isn't easy for me. When I thought about it, I was pretty sure I would react in the same way Billie did. And, that is really important to me. It's the reason why Billie is one of the characters that I'm going to cherish forever.

Heath, the hero, is also extremely well written. For him, his work and his business are everything. He doesn't have anything else in his life. He's cold and calculating and for him, everything is a business decision. But, as he spends more time with Billie, his charade slips and we come face to face with a man who has left many things in his life and is looking for any semblance of control he can find. He's sweet and thoughtful, absolutely in awe of Billie and her beauty, her strength and her heart. The way he loves her is so pure and deep that you can't help but fall in love with him.

He is one of those boys that you can't help but love. When he's with Billie, you see a side of him that's so sweet and thoughtful and loving and caring, that you wouldn't be able to recognize him. The care and love that he treats Billie with really tugs at my heart. I adore him for it!
