Synopsis:
HOW CAN IT BE WRONG
IF IT FEELS SO GOOD

Dating an American princess comes with a massive amount of baggage–all of which I’m willing to carry strapped on my back in quicksand and through seven hells. But Jane Cobalt’s baggage, I’m unprepared for. It comes in the form of her five equally famous and notoriously hard-to-please brothers.

I want Jane.
Completely.
Unconditionally.

But when there’s a trip scheduled that I can’t be a part of, I only have one option. It’s immoral.
Something I’d never consider until now.

But, hell, there’s got to be some perks to being a twin. So I’m doing it. I’m switching places with my brother.

Done and done.

It should have been easy.

There were little consequences.

Until the storm hit.


Tangled Like Us was the first disappointing book from these writers but I didn’t know if it was just that one or would I like Jane and Thatcher. That’s why I picked up Sinful Like Us despite not liking them much together.

I was never a big Jane fan but this book made me even less of one. She has reasons to act like she does but I just find her annoying. She cares a lot for her family but so does other people in her family like Moffy and even her brothers. She wants to be independent but she’s the most important reason why I didn’t enjoy this book. Some of the things she did just made me want to hit my head through a wall.

I actually prefer Thatcher in this book. He seemed so stoic in earlier books but he didn’t mind that Jane never said that little three word sentence and he gave up so much for her and now he risked his job for her, again. It was nice to see him pretend to be his brother but I wish we had seen more about Banks trying to be Thatcher.

I haven’t really seen Tom aka Pippy in earlier books and he’s such a cinnamon roll. I hope to see more of him in next book.  I also liked to see more of Xander even if I didn’t understand why he expected Thatcher to become Hale instead of Cobalt.

The romance was alright. We already had secret relationship in Tangled Like Us, so I didn’t like the fact that they had to keep their relationship from some people, again. Jane being afraid to love him didn’t make it any better.

All in all I thought I was going to rate this book higher until like halfway through it. I just hate that whole trope Jane decided to go through during their trip to grocery store. I also didn’t like the fact that I saw similarities in Jane and Thatcher’s story and the one with Jane’s parents like the heroine treating hero unfairly and another male character causing unnecessary drama.

This book just didn’t feel necessary. All this could’ve been dealt in Tangled Like Us.
