The Good Sister by Rachael Stewart - Book Blitz & Review + Giveaway

The Good Sister

When Isla Evans agrees to switch lives with her rising star of a twin for three weeks, she has no idea the move will thrust her into the same bed as her teenage celebrity heartthrob, Bradley King. Trapped there at her sister’s request, she gives her desire free reign and finds herself falling hard and fast.

And she’s not alone. 

Bradley wants a wife to tick all the boxes, save for one: love. It’s not part of the deal, never was, never will be. But when he returns home early to find his hopeful-fiancée behaving all sorts of different, he likes it. A lot. Suddenly, he wants a real marriage, with all the trimmings, and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.

But this Hollywood HEA faces one big hurdle—she’s not who he thinks she is…

My Review 
The Good Sister is a story that seems like it would be every girl's fantasy: Becoming someone else and having a hot celebrity fall for you. Well, that's totally one of my fantasies, if I'm being honest. lol
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.
