Goodreads:  Forensic accountant Sloane Tobin and kooky pet psychic Willa may have the same face, but that’s the only thing these identical twins have in common. 

How she can read the hearts and minds of animals has always been a mystery to Willa, and her rotten luck with men is equally baffling. Although she’s been looking for “The One” for what feels like forever (A teenage marriage to a French mime and dating a guy named Spider seemed like good ideas at the time!), optimistic Willa refuses to give up on love. When she meets Brody, the handsome rose expert hired to save her grandmother’s garden, she’s instantly smitten, but why does he keep sending her mixed signals? Does he return her feelings, or is their attraction all in her fanciful head? 

Unlike her twin, Sloane has zero interest in romance. Her passion is her job, where she uses her gift for numbers to take down slimy embezzlers and asset-hiding spouses. When she’s assigned two high profile cases, Sloane feels confident the promotion she’s been angling for is within her grasp. But will her plan to climb the corporate ladder be thwarted by difficult clients, her co-worker-with-benefits, or – most surprisingly of all – her own sister? And how’s she supposed to stay focused on the drama at work when her childhood friend, Gav, moves in next door and the spark between them becomes impossible to ignore? 

To get what they both want, can Willa and Sloane band together and rely on each other’s strengths? Or will their differences drive them apart once and for all?

Kritters Thoughts:  A set of twin girls that can't be any more different!  Sloane is the serious twin, an accountant, but definitely avoiding the seriousness in relationships.  Willa, a pet psychic, living day to day and had quite a bad run on relationships.  They balance each other and I loved how they found the best advice in each other.

Personally, I may be more of a Sloane, so I LOVED reading her chapters more than Willas chapters.  As they were labeled, (and very different characters), it was easy to switch from one twin to another.  As I have said about previous books, I loved that this book didn't completely revolve around drama in their love lives, they also had drama on the work front.  

As far as I know, only ebook version, but a great add to any ereader for fans of chick lit.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
