Twin sisters trade places, and the hero is sleeping with one while thinking it's the other. I understand that's the mistaken identity is the point of the story, but he is not consenting to have sex with Isla. It is non-consensual sex. That's rape. She is raping him for the entirety of this novel. They never have on page sex one he knows her actual identity. Because he's male and aroused at the moment does not excuse the fact that he is having sex with someone he did not agree to have sex with. It casts a huge shadow over the entire novel and prevents me from being able to recommend it. I honestly sort of excused it for the first, non-penetrative scene, but the figured she would tell him and they'd be trying to prevent the paparazzi from noticing the switch, together.
There are also several dropped things, like the paps, are mentioned several times, but never show up. Or the first sex scene involves spanking, but that is never mentioned again either. You keep waiting for things mentioned to show back up, but they never do.
I wanted to like this book, it has a lot of potential, but the non-con and inconsistent storytelling made that impossible.
Talk about walking in someone else shoes and that is what Isla gets to know when she switches with Carrie. Those two are like night and day which is no big deal because most twins are total opposites. Isla is the beautiful, sweet, honest, and kind hearted one that holds a grudge like no one I have ever seen. Carrie is the beautiful, selfish, and free spirited one out of them. I didn’t care to much for Carrie in the beginning and so wanted Isla to tell her off so many times it was warranted. Bradley is a hot, alpha, sweet and bad boy between the sheets. I loved him throughout the whole book and when he tried so hard to help all the people, he cares for that just made me love him even more. I think it will be my next book boyfriend until someone comes and takes his place. The Good sister is a great book about two sisters who find the true meaning of love and life when they walk in one another shoes. You can also find love in the most unsuspected of ways and live your life to the fullest. Come read about Isla, Bradley and Carrie and find out how their story begins.
*I voluntarily read a copy of this book and this is my honest review*
Anyway, we have somewhat shy, somewhat quiet and modest Isla, who agrees to switch places with her twin sister, who is the exact opposite: a rising star who loves high-class everything.
Only problem is, sis has a fiance - Bradley - who also happens to be Isla's celeb crush. What's a girl to do when she wakes up one morning with this hunky man in her bed? Well...I'm not going to tell you what happens, since that would spoil things.
I found the character of Isla to be both endearing and, at times, a bit wishy-washy. Like, she's super sweet and helpful towards Bradley's sister, but other times she has these moments where you just want to scream at her and tell her to make up her mind.
I wasn't fond of Bradley at first, but he sort of grew on me, as did Isla's sister (whose name slips my mind right now as I type this). They were likeable enough characters.
I think the only character I sort of disliked was Bradley's mom, but that's only because she was one of those rich, hoity-toity people I don't like anyway.
The story was a relatively quick read that held my attention, although there were times I grew a little bored with it. Nothing against the author and her writing, but there were a couple of times where I wanted a little less "sexy times" and a little more "hopeless romantic" moments, if that makes sense.
Overall, though, The Good Sister is a fun, quick read with a HEA, and I did like it.
I give the story 3.5 stars.

I really loved Isla, she was really my favourite kind of heroine. She was a strong female character that didn't need the male character to carry her. She had some of the best inner monologue. The author really does write some of the wittiest one liners!
The hero Brad was as swoon worthy as you could get, he was cocky and arrogant but that didn't make him a self-centred character, far from it in fact. I loved his backstory, it made him so relatable and real. He may on the outside appear to have it all, but inside he was emotional and broken in some ways, our heroine really makes his character shine. His thoughts and feelings about her just make his whole personality light up.
Rachael Stewart's writing is nothing short of magic, she seems to know what to say and when to say it. Her comic timing is perfect, and her pacing is really on point. She carries the story along really well, and knows just when to insert certain scenes that'll change her readers emotions in an instant. I've said it many times, but she really is an outstanding author.
From then on the pace of the read steadied but the heat continued, as did the drive to solve the central conflict – should she / shouldn’t she and how can this possibly all end well? Bradley King is a likeable male lead with swoon appeal, who you have to feel for a bit as he is unwittingly drawn into the deception orchestrated by the two sisters. There were plenty of racy moments, but intimacy was also built into the story, which made the choices being made more credible.
