We all know what happens when you play with fire. . .someone’s bound to get burned.
When I saw the announcement for the release of Doppelbanger, I was I in public space and had to really tone down my reaction. But trust me when I tell you that by the time I was finished, I was really dizzy from my spinny chair dance. Since then I waited (kind of) patiently, that by the time it hit my device, I set a land speed record for reading. Then I went back and did it again. This book is an absolute joy. It’s laugh your face off funny. It’s deliciously profane. It’s gorgeously moving. Doppelbanger hits all sorts of marks that make it a story that you will keep in your heart for a very long time.
Doppelbanger can be read as a standalone, but because I love you and want only the best for you, I really recommend reading Boomerangers as a companion. There you will meet/fall in love with Gina Bourque and her best friend in life Spencer LeBlanc, which will also make your Doppelbanger reading experience all the sweeter.
Gina is described as a pixie. Tinkerbell. It’s true – she is pure magic. She lives her life as she wants and makes no apologies. Her every moment brings this book to life – I loved her brashness, her humor and her great big heart. Gina is the person you want in your corner, in good times and in bad. She brings the magic.
Jeffrey. He and his girls need all the magic they can get. Suffering loss and stumbling their way towards normal. You will fall in love with Jeffrey and forgive him all manner of trespasses. He is a good dad, who protects his girls like gold at Fort Knox, but he needs to swing open the gates of his own heart.
And these two together? It’s sparks to a flame. Their talk of no strings is all lip service and it is fun watching their fall. While Gina and Jeffrey may be so very different, they are so perfectly matched. They only need to get out of their own ways to allow it all to come together.
Pixie meets CEO and rocks his world to it’s core. Get your hands on DoppelBanger and buckle up, because this ride is all manner of fun!!
