Will He Ever Love Me, When All He Sees Is Her?
I had everything a man could want. Money. Status. And above all: Love. But when my wife is taken from me, my life begins to fall apart. But now she’s back. Back from the dead. I can relive our most passionate and tender moments together. I’m losing myself in her once again. But then I discover the truth about my wife. And everything I remember turns out to be a lie.
All I have to do is dye my hair, wear someone else’s clothes, and follow a script. What harm can come from stepping into someone else’s shoes in exchange for two hundred grand? Did I mention the deal includes sex with the hottest, most acclaimed painter of our time? It’s a no brainer, right? Especially since I’m in desperate need of cash, so I can help my parents get back on their feet after losing everything in the storm. I fully commit to the part he’s hired me to play. I never expected to uncover her secrets. And I never imagined I’d fall in love.

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I finished this one a couple of days ago and I still don’t know how to feel about it. It wasn’t bad just very strange. I’ve not ever read a story quite like this one. It’s also the first book I’ve read by Priya and Ozlo Grey.
The story follows Jack whose wife died 9 months ago in a car crash, since her death he has been unable to paint and with a gallery show coming up he decides to hire Rebecca (who happens to look just like his wife) to dress up and play the part of his wife so that he can relieve the memories he has of her and get back is spark of creativity.
This story is told from both Jack and Rebecca’s perspectives so you get a clear picture of what is happening from both characters.
I guess I enjoyed it, as I said before I did find the story a little odd. The whole getting someone to dress and act like your dead wife did not seem to be a healthy way to grieve but I guess we all get through things in different ways.
I can’t say I felt that much of a connection to either of the characters but the intriguing storyline kept me reading anyway and it didn’t really affect my enjoyment of the book.
The Bottom Line:
If you after a romance book with a bit of a difference this one is definitely worth a try.
