About the book

The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not.

Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white.

But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.
Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her.

Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them.

My Thoughts
Down to You was definitely an entertaining book! It had all of the elements of a fun and romantic read.

Olivia is just your average girl who’s trying to finish up her last year in college with one goal in mind – to head back to her father’s farm to help run the business. She comes from a small town and soon proves to be no match for the twin duo Nash and Cash. After landing a job at Dual, Olivia immediately feels a strong attraction to these two brothers. However, choosing between Cash who’s the bad boy among the two and Nash who is the clean cut, soon to be lawyer, but dating her cousin is only landing her heartache.

The book definitely kept my attention and managed to catch me off guard well past with the mid-point with the plot twist. I had to remind myself that I was reading a spicy/fun novel for pure entertainment, so logic needs to take a back seat in this adventure. I was curious how it would all come together, so that coupled with the fun, sassy banter kept me engaged all the way through to the end.

Overall, it was a fun read that served a dual purpose of delivering on steam and entertainment. After the cliffy, I would surely consider reading the next book in this series. Liked it much!
