Out of Love by Ruth Cardello

Now Available! Out of Love by Ruth Cardello.

Laughter and sparks set the stage for a fun romance from New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello about a farmer who switches places with his business-savvy twin brother and falls in love with the daughter of his brother’s biggest client.

I just found out I have an identical twin. I’d love the idea if he wasn’t an arrogant, overconfident businessman who is determined to save my farm even though I’m in no danger of losing it. When I agreed to switch lives with him, it was supposed to be for a couple of hours.

I was told to lie low, meet no one, and let him deal with the oil company that was sniffing around my property. I agreed to the switch only because it was the first time since we’d met that my twin had shown interest in my life, and I hoped it would give us a better understanding of each other.

Hours drag into days. I consider our initial agreement void and head to his office. I’m sitting at his desk, mostly minding my own business, when a beautiful woman blusters in, ready for a confrontation with my brother about an email. She’s the daughter of my brother’s largest client.

I only flirt with her to make her smile. What could it hurt to pretend to be my brother just a little longer?

I didn’t expect to uncover a plan to sabotage my brother’s company. I don’t want to believe that the woman I can’t get out of my thoughts and would love to get into my bed has anything to do with what I’ve discovered.

Save the company.

Save the girl.

I have no idea how I’ll do either, but when something is done out of love, it has to work out.

This is the second book in the series, and you absolutely need to read them in order. I absolutely love the premise of the books, and am really looking forward to the next one, given the revelations at the very end of this one!!

In the first book, we experience what happens to Jesse when he decides that he needs to step in to save his newly discovered twin, Scott, from losing his farm to an oil company. It is funny and sweet and ultimately gives us a very different perspective on Scott than we had expected – beans... all I need to say!

In this installment, we get what happened to Scott when he was dropped into Jesse's home and told to wait until Jesse had sorted everything out... It is a lot of fun seeing it from Scott's side – especially the instructions on animal care, given Jesse (as Scott) should know how to care for his farm.

Just as Jesse couldn't stick to the plan, nor could Scott – as he goes into Jesse's office to see how his brother lives and works. Well from meeting Monica, and duping her, and annoying his newly discovered adopted bug brother, things are a little more complicated than he expected. Most complicated of all are his feelings for Monica, and the dread of coming clean of his deception.

This mirrored Jesse's issue at the farm, and I very much enjoyed cringing on Scott's behalf as he got himself into such a mess – and amused that the beans were once again going to be important!

If you are ready to suspend belief (which is, after all, the point of reading much fiction), then this is a fun and easy read – enjoy!

Having a twin can be fun, you switch places, share clothes, and know what the other is thinking. But growing up not knowing you have a twin can be shocking. Scott is a farmer and Jesse is a businessman, total opposites.

When Scott needs help with his farm, Jesse offers to pretend to be him to keep the vultures away. While Scott gets to spend time living in Jesse's condo and he goes to Jesse's job. Each learns something about the other and it helps them want to learn more.

I loved the first book and this one was even better as we get Scott's point of view. There is an aspect of intrigue and suspense to the story that will keep you pulled into it and that is what makes it a great duo. I recommend this author, she has a way of making you fall for the characters and loving the stories in the end.

I did not read book one in this series.

Scott has figured out that he has a twin. When his twin believes that he can stop the oil company that is pursuing Scott's farm, they decide to switch places. However, when things don't go quite as planned, Scott decides that he's done staying hidden.

Monica is strong and dedicated. She is intelligent and knows that she can go far in life. However, she is scared to not work and not be known for her work.

While this is a cute story, it was somewhat one dimensional. There is no depth to the characters. Also, the main characters seem to be all incredibly similar. Everyone is good looking, smart, and dedicated.

So, while this was a quick read that is entertaining, it is very quick because there isn't much to the story.
