REVIEW - He Belongs with Me by Sarah Darlington

The Book
Release Date: 1 February 2014
Goodreads Link

Two girls. 

One Leo. 

Identical twins, Maggie and Clara Ryder, both grew up with Leo Maddox, billionaire playboy, apparent alcoholic, and heir to his grandfather's world-famous Maddox hotel empire. 

Their roles were cemented long ago: Maggie, as his best friend and Clara as his childhood nemesis. But when a simple twist of fate changes everything and both girls start to fall for the lean, mean, ridiculously sexy and seemingly spoiled Leo... which girl will win his heart? 

Throw in a little mischief, drama, and one smoking-hot bartender and lines are sure to blur. But one thing's for certain, neither good-girl Maggie nor rebellious Clara will be satisfied until they each figure out where they belong. 

*NEW ADULT ROMANCE. Recommended for 17+ due to sexual situations and adult language.*

My Opinion  4 STARS

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This book switches from the POV of Maggie and Clara, twin sisters.  Originally we are told that Maggie is the good sister and that Clara is the Bad sister, however many times during this book they seem to switch up so much you just don't know whats really true.

However I must say that I think I preferred Clara, she says what she thinks and isn't afraid to be her.  Maggie however seems to be more spoilt and materialistic, even through she has a better relationship with her dad.

I think the only time i frowned was when Maggie decided that she wanted her best friend only when he said that he wanted her sister Clara.  I mean hello?  He just said HE wanted Clara, not that she had always wanted him.  Does this girl not think clearly?

Three men were introduced, one as a piece of crap that needed revenge taken upon, one best friend and a former step-brother that had broken a heart when he left.

I did like how everything ended, however I think there was a love interest with the father that was never taken up properly.  
I did enjoy reading this and did like seeing the big difference between the sisters in both how they acted and played out.  Was glad that everyone got their HEA.
