Book Tour: He Belongs With Me by Sarah Darlington


Title: HE BELONGS WITH ME
Author: Sarah Darlington
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
He Belongs With Me

Synopsis: 
Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis.

But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart?

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong.

First Sentence:
Desperation kept me from falling as I stumbled across the gravel parking lot in my red, Jimmy Choo, sky-high stilettos.

Last Sentence:
"Is right now too soon to start?"

  What a cute and good read! Twins run in my family, so this made for an even more interesting read. I've never happened across a story about twins quite like this. Sarah Darlington did a fantastic job at writing twins that were so dynamic and different. Every character, not just the twins, had their own voice. I appreciated that so much. Leo was the perfect bad boy. I can definitely seeing him becoming a book boyfriend favorite!

  Sarah's writing is really good. She's definitely talented, and this book showcases that. The altering narrative between the twins was a good way to tell the story and it helps outline all the twists and turns in this story very well. By the time I finished this book, I was happy that I read it solely because of Sarah's ability to write the story in her own way that definitely delivered.

  The beginning of the book took a minute for me to get into it. It's my only downfall with this book. But once I got around 15% into the story, I couldn't put it down. The relationships evolved so well, and it helped to build the story. The ending was such a shocker. Once this story finds it footing, it quickly takes off as a refreshing read and much needed twist on the love triangle.

  I would definitely recommend this book to any New Adult Romance fan. If Leo doesn't become your next book boyfriend, Dean definitely will!

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to Sarah Darlington.
