First - The Blurb:

When I’m broken and nothing seems to make any sense, I go back to the ranch, to my beautiful Jessie. Jess…fixes me, makes me whole again.

Those were the words written in Adam's journal shortly before he died. His twin brother, Mitch, has never met Jessie, but believes she must be some kind of woman to glue his brother back together time after time. Now it is up to Mitch to tell her that Adam is gone, that he will never again return to her waiting arms. He doesn't want to tell her, doesn't want to be the one to break her heart, but what choice does he have?

On the drive to Jessie's ranch, Mitch devises a way they can both put closure on Adam's death. Posing as Adam will give Jessie one last time with him. Mitch can give her the memories she deserves, let her hear the words Adam should have spoken to her when he had the chance. And in the process, maybe Jessie can ease some of the ache in his own heart.

It is a simple plan; give Jessie a lifetime of memories, mend his own broken heart, then leave and send word of Adam's death. But the moment Mitch arrives at the ranch, his plan begins to fall apart. Jessie is everything his brother said she was, everything Mitch could ever hope for in a woman. Now he must spend the rest of his life pretending to be Adam, or tell Jessie the truth and risk losing her forever.

Second - The Tease:

Mitch's hand slid up around her waist to her back and pulled her closer. "I love you," he said thickly.
Jessie curled her fingers around his neck and pulled him down to her. "I love you, too." She brushed her mouth against his in a slow, seductive sweep. "Have I ever told you how incredibly sexy you are?" His response was little more than a low, masculine groan as Jessie traced his lips with her tongue. "Or how just looking at you makes my heart race." She left a trail of moist kisses along his firm jaw line and down the side of his neck. "Or how the scent of your skin drives me half crazy with desire." Another low moan rumbled deep in his chest. "Or how..."
"Perfectly we fit together," he finished for her as his hand glided up her thigh and slipped beneath her dress.

This is one of those stories that starts off with good intentions, and after a few minor bumps, ends with a HEA. A light read but a little long winded at times.

My rating: 4 out of 5
