It Was You by Anna Cruise - Review

It Was You
by Anna Cruise

Abby Sellers knows what she wants.

Enduring eighteen years in the shadow of her identical twin sister, Annika, she wants a fresh start. A chance to create her own life, separate from her conniving, deceptive twin.

Surprising both her family and friends, Abby ditches her plans for college and enrolls at a new school instead. There, she encounters West Montgomery, a sexy fellow student who immediately disarms her with his good looks and charm. West takes a liking to Abby and she suddenly finds herself walking a thin line, fabricating a fictional life created not by lies but by omission. She soon discovers West has secrets of his own, secrets that he's not altogether interested in sharing.

Out from under the shadow of her twin, Abby's life—and her relationship with West—blossoms. When Abby leaves town one weekend, something unthinkable happens and her relationship with West is shattered. Reeling from the discovery, Abby fears all of her plans have backfired and she's created a mess for both of them, a mess that no one can clean up.

But West isn't willing to let her go that easily. When he forces her to confront secrets they've both been hiding, Abby must decide more than if she's willing to forgive and forget. She must also decide just what kind of life she wants...and who she wants to live it with.

My review:
It Was You is a sweet, yet sexy, new adult romance. I actually admired Abby's sudden decision to change all of her plans so that she could be her own person, get away from her sister, and have the kind of life she wants. Of course, it's hard to get away from a twin sister, or any family for that matter, unless you move far away, and Abby's plan to get away from her sister doesn't really turn out like she wanted. Annika still manages to insert herself into the part of Abby's life that she is trying to keep secret. When reading this book, it may seem a little obvious what is about to happen with Annika, but this book is still an enjoyable read. Anna Cruise provides you with romance, humor, a great best friend, and family issues, plus there is obvious attraction between Abby and West, and the sexy scenes are hot and well done. I would recommend it.

I got this book during a free promotion on Amazon and was not required to write a review.
