Detective Derek Brewer believes in the clear dividing line between right and wrong. Years ago, his twin brother Alden fell on the wrong side of that line and Derek has never forgiven Alden for it. But lately Alden has been working hard to change his ways, so when he asks-no, begs-Derek to pose as him for a few days in order to help him out, Derek reluctantly agrees despite the misgivings of his conscience.
Toni Park is desperate to save her older brother from the grip of a terrible drug addiction. She's put her life on hold to move back home and help him, but every day he seems to be slipping further from her grasp. When she meets Alden Brewer, she sees in the darkly sexy man the potential for a little selfish fun, even if only for a short time. Little does she realize that he's not who he says he is.
Derek doesn't want to lie to Toni, but he doesn't have a choice when Alden's future is at stake. He consoles himself with the knowledge that their intense affair is only temporary and no one will actually get hurt when it ends. But when their relationship grows deeper, the truth could end up costing them both more than they imagined...

## I enjoyed reading this book for the most part. I love the twin switch trope. Hero and heroine had fantastic chemistry and there were some really HOT sex scenes. If I was judging this book on the romance alone, it would definitely garner 5 stars. However, the story revolves around 2 drug addicts (siblings, not h/h) and for me that just took up too much page time. So many things about drugs I really didn't want to read about. Anyway, that's my issue alone and would still recommend this book. Apprx. 200 pages.
Twist by Kylie Scott Dive Bar #2 I have had pen pals in the past when paper and pen were used then later as email buddies. I can honestly say that meeting most of them was even better than expected - but one time it definitely was not. Why? No warning of the visit and the person was not as had been described in the letters. What does my remembering this event have to do with “Twist”? Well, the story told in “Twist” reminded me of my past and made me think and feel and care a bit more about the characters I was reading about. It also made me wonder, “What if the guy who showed up on my door had been more like Joe?” – not that Joe showed up at Alex’s door…but still… Alex had expectations when she showed up to meet Eric at the Dive Bar. She had hopes that their messaging over past months might prove the basis for more and since it was one of the only times she had been willing to try for more it was a BIG deal the way he responded to her appearance at the bar. Eric was surprised, Alex was surprised and so was Joe, the instigator of the mix-up. Turning on her heel to leave should have been the end of the debacle but instead the flu found Alex and Joe stepped in to nurse her back to health. With time their ally they found their way back to the online friendship that they both so enjoyed. With a few twists and turns, ups and downs, interesting moments and some sad ones, too, the couple move forward toward a HEA that they both deserve. You have no doubt heard of the quiet man, the gentle giant, that still waters run deep – well, Joe was the epitome of all of these sayings and more. I think he might be one of my favorite book boyfriends so far. Alex is a bit harder to pigeonhole. She’s smart, independent, and hardworking; she has a sense of humor, knows what she wants and needs both in and outside of the bedroom. She has one close friend but otherwise she seems unwilling to commit to a relationship and fears emotional entanglements. I enjoyed the telling of this story, catching up with characters from the previous book and am eager to find out who will star in book three of the series. Thank you to Net Galley and St. Martin’s Griffin – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars
