The Spare has blown me away, I was so engrossed in this story, the characters were intriguing and the plot soooo intense.
Tallulah is a ghost, invisible even to her own family until they need her. She's the daughter who doesn't matter, a twin but not in her own right.
Carrigan is the oldest, the first born who will inherit everything if she succeeds with her late Grandfathers will demands, she must remain a socialite keep up the family name she also has to keep her grades up, finish High school with good grades, and to do that Tallulah the sister nobody knows about sometimes has to sit tests in her place Carrigan was definitely not the twin with brains but no-one must know who Tallulah really is and so she pretends to be her sister when necessary.
They both go to the same school filled with rich students, the elite, the well known in society but people only know of one Archibald and that's Carrigan.
The Archibald family are greedy, evil, selfish, they parade their eldest daughter around like a prize possession and even the money she is going to inherit isn't enough, they want more, they want Carrigan to marry into money, they want Carrigan to marry Arlo who is also from a rich family to strengthen the family name.
Arlo Lexington can't be bought or manipulated that easily, he can't even stand the prissy princess Carrigan and eventually he stumbles across the secret the Archibald's have been hiding... Tallulah, who is the complete opposite of her sister.
Oh my god it got so exciting and intense, I seriously cannot see where the plot will go, Gemma nailed this young adult romantic suspense and I cannot wait to see what happens next in part two.
Fans of L.J Shen and L.A Cotton, Tijan, would love this.
The rich are rich for a reason and all they want to do is get richer. How they obtain that money doesn’t matter and who the hurt in the process is nothing to lose sleep over. Old money versus new money and old traditions of arranging loveless marriages are still the practice among the wealthy and it only gets worse as time moves on not better. Once upon a time a man-made lot and lots of money. His son and then grandson did nothing but reap the benefits of the hard work the old man did. Now as the old man dies, he leaves a will and testament that will shock the family and the upper crust of society. In the pursuit of gaining more money a set of twins are put to the test. While one wants one of the gorgeous elites that has been put on the short list to marry her, he wants the twin that doesn’t care and can walk away from it all.
Spoiled Rich Kids?.... Check
Entiled J*rks?.... Check
Rude Family?.... Double Check
First I have to say that I just absolutely loved Tallulah. I also felt for the girl. I couldn't stand her family and get why they treated her like Cinderella. I actually have some guesses on why she's treated the way she is. But I'll have to wait and see if I'm right.
I'm still unsure about Arlo. I mean is he just a rich je*k. Or is he really a nice guy. I really have mixed feelings on him. One minute he seems like a really nice guy who's just stuck in this rich world that he doesn't really want to be in. Than the next I just want to smack him upside his head.
I have to say that I was really excited to read this book. But I feel as this was really short though, I mean I know its split up in parts. But I felt like this first part just licked the surface and left you wanting more. And I know that's why the author ended it where she ended it. But still I was like, Noooooooo, I need more right now.
I really don't want to give anything away in my review, but I have some idea's on why Tallulah's "Family" and really they don't deserve that title. But why her family acts the way they do towards her. But I guess I'll have to wait till the next part to find out if I'm right or not.
I'm giving this book 4 Stars out of 5 and can't wait for the next part. Hopefully its coming soon!!!

So I've loved everything that Gemma Weir has brought us.. so as soon as I saw she was bringing out a new book I jumped into ordering. I had NO clue what it was about but I wanted it asap lol
I'll be honest and say I wasnt 100% when I started reading but by time I got in past the frost few chapters I was hooked!!
Arlo is a complete d&%k but I kinda like him lol
Tallulah is lost and lonely being 'the spare' member of her family.
So when Arlo actually sees her shes shocked and not sure what to make of it all.
Cant wait for Part two and cant believe this was how she actually left us hanging waiting for more Haha
I absolutely loved this book. I could not put it down. Though I would read for a couple of hours before bed, but no, that didn’t happen, I stayed up till the early hours until it was finished. 2 hours sleep and let’s just say I felt like a walking zombie at work the next day, but it was so worth it.
This book just flowed so well and gave me so many feels and emotions. But got that cliffhanger is killing me and I need book 2 now.
I don’t want to give anything away, but you will find yourself rooting for Tallulah, willing for her to find a way out of a situation that her family are happy to exploit and do so regularly
Can’t wait for book 2!
