    1. Oh so endearing and cheesy cute!!! I got choked up several times throughout the book. I can’t help but love books with “mistaken” identities. I’m soooo reading book 3 and skipping book 2, I despised the selfish twin.


    2. I started out giving this a four star review and now I've changed it to three stars. Certain things about the story just weren't my cup of tea and I can't say that I wasn't pleased for it to finally be over.My personal problem with it is that more than 50% of the book is spent with one character deceiving the other. Not a simple deception, but the newlywed wife is posing as her twin sister! So it feels like the love story doesn't really start until he finds out he's been deceived. Although, as u [...]


    3. I loved it! I didn't know if I would cause the idea of identical twins switching places is just all kinds of crazy yet juicy at the same time. It could have been a total bomb but the author did a wonderful job. While I do think the 'ruse' was dragged out a bit long I understand why it was done. The author was really clever in handling how Violet acted around Adrian. You could tell she completely loved the man and her actions prove how hard it was on her to continue with the lie. So it's hard not [...]


    4. That was another good HR I read lately. I'm glad to see there are still little gems to be found in this genre and I've become better in telling what to avoid by the blurb of the book and by my fellow readers' reviews.This is a sort of marriage of convenience/forced marriage plot with a twist. Adrian wants to marry and found lady Jeanette beautiful and confident enough to be his duchess. He may have had doubts about his choice of bride after the engagement but it is too late to do anything about [...]


    5. Loved this audiobook! Had a wonderful narrator that I hope to run into more often (she did great male voices -- a HUGE "do or die" for an audiobook for me, and very distinct characterizations). As for the storyline, although the premise was pretty unbelieveable (twins sustaining a switch of their lives and fooling even their parents on a long term basis), the story was portrayed very romantically. I was not only willing, but stubbornly ignored the implausibilities of the situation. The heroine w [...]


    6. DETAILED PLOT SUMMARY: This book opens at the wedding ceremony of Jeannette Rose Brantford and Adrian Winter, Duke of Raeburn. Except the bride is not Jeannette Rose, but her identical twin sister: Jannette Violet, or simply Violet.* Jeannette convinced Violet to switch with her right before the ceremony, and with the alternative of having her family thrown to scandal, she reluctantly, begrudgingly accepts. While the twins have different public personas - not to mention abilities and minor physi [...]


    7. ★★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I don’t know how many times I’ve read this book; it just resonated with me, back in the day, as I tried to imagine being in Violet’s situation: her identical twin doesn’t want to marry the man with whom Violet is secretly in love. It is shortly before the wedding, so Violet makes a rash decision and steps in. Implausible, true, but fun in some ways.Still, while the narration by Bianca Amato was very nicely done -- she’s surprisingly [...]


    8. Violet Brantford has always longed for the passionate embrace of Adrian Winter, the wealthy Duke of Raeburn. Problem is, he’s set to marry Violet’s vivacious, more socially polished look-alike twin sister, Jeannette. But when Jeannette refuses to go through with the ceremony mere minutes before it is to begin, soft-spoken Violet finds herself walking down the aisle and taking vows in her sister’s place. Soon shy Violet is a high-society wife, trying to keep her real identity a secret while [...]


    9. Skimmed too much to rate.I'm not sure what it was about this but I couldn't get into it. It started out promisingly and it was nice to see the two begin to fall in love. I could even let myself suspend disbelief for the unlikeliness of such a plot. The narrator was good as well.I think it was just too long for what it was. The H/h marry fairly early on and then you're just waiting for the other shoe to drop - for him to find out his wife is actually the shy twin.Once it did, there was some good [...]


    10. You know, from the blurb of this book I actually expected something sillier and I was preparing myself to roll my eyes a lot. And though I must confess there was indeed some eye-rolling, overall I really enjoyed this book a lot.Let's start with the main characters. Violet is Jeannette's twin. She's identical to Jeannette in appearance but her exact opposite in personality. Jeanette is the typical "diamond of the first water." She's into fashion and always knows the latest gossip. She could care [...]


    11. Kollarımdaki Yabancı - Tracy Anne WARRENYazarın Trap yani tuzak üçlemesinin ilk kitabı olan Husband (Koca)Yazar ile ilk tanışmamız olan bu roman kelimenin tam anlamı ile süper,müthiş romantik bir kitaptıDiyebilirim ki mest oldumAynı konuyu içeren 1981 yılı Basımı Ateşli Duygular romanına benzesede Warren'in kalemi çok daha güzel çok daha akıcıydıKitap diyebilirim ki su gibi aktıRomanını kısaca konusuna gelince:Jeannette ve Violet Brantford birbirlerine su damlası [...]


    12. It took me a while to read this book but not because it was not interesting. In fact it was much better than I expected. This was my first book by Tracy Anne Warren and probably not the last one.To be honest, I shouldn't have liked this book so much. Lying to the person you love was an important part of the story and this is something I can't stand in my books. Violet agrees to replace her twin sister Jeannette on the altar and plays her role after wedding making her husband Adrian believe she i [...]


    13. 4 - 4,5 starsThe idea of changing identity is not appealing to me at first. After thinking it through I decided I should give this book a try and turned out I really liked this book. Something about the way this author wrote makes the greatest issue in this story -marrying the other twin- resolves smoothly. This kind of plot might not my first of choices but this book surely is one of my favorite.Looking forward to reading another book from this author.Why not five stars?(view spoiler)[ Deceivin [...]


    14. Violet Adrian ı ilk gördüğü günden beri seviyordur ama o ikiz kız kardeşi ile evlenecektir. Rose düğün günü evlenmekten vaz geçince Violet ve Rose kimseyi mahcup etmemek için yer değiştirirler. Violet sevdiği adamla evleneceği için mutludur ama yalan bir evlilik olduğu için de vicdanı hiç rahat değildir. Adrian artık yaşı 33 e geldiği için evlenmesi gerektiğini düşünüp Rose ile evlenmektedir ama aklında aşk düşüncesi yoktur. Ailesinde hiçbir zaman aşkı [...]


    15. For this to start off with marriage already and the switch didn't sit well with me.I would have wanted to read more how she fell in love, what made her do itI got to admit I pretty much skimmed through the book. I feel like he doesn't deserve her. Or for that matter, she should have been with someone else who didn't choose her sister. Plus all that deceiving & lies throughout most of the book made it hard for me like the heroine.Well, even the hero. IDK, if I had an identical twin, I would w [...]


    16. Bu yazarı ilk defa okuyorum ama çok beğendiğimi söylemeliyimKitap da çok hoştu Violet, ikizi Jeanette'in vazgeçmesi üzerine düğün günü onun yerine geçip, Raburn dükü Adrian ile evleniyor Tabi durumdan kimsenin haberi olmuyor Ta ki Adrian'ın cingöz kardeşi Kit bir şeyler anlayana kadar Jeanette'in hayatındaki kişiler yüzünden de ortalık baya bir karışıyor yanlış anlamalara sebebiyet vererek sonuç Ehh her histırical'da olduğu gibi mutlu son :DBen çok beğenerek o [...]


    17. Thank you, Brit and Aly, for giving this book a good rating <3I loved every second of it! I stayed last night until 3, even if I knew that today I had a lot of work to do. Violet is not my typical favourite heroine, but I loved her transformation. It seemed so natural and not forced. Everything in this story went the way it should have gone


    18. Nice book An overlooked bookish smart women (who luckily) have an identical twin switch with her sister on her sister wedding day and marry the man she secretly liked but was supposed to marry her sister. and the nice adventure begins


    19. Zart zurt giden elektrikler sağ olsun, anca güncelleme girebiliyorum.Kitap ikizinin yerine geçip Adrian ile evlenen Violet'in hikâyesini konu ediniyor. Şimdi, yazarı ilk defa okudum. Genel olarak güzel ve eğlenceliydi ama Sanırım benim keyifsizliğimin kurbanı oldu. Emin değilim. :/



    20. I’m glad I didn’t let the hideous cover stop me from picking up this book because it was actually pretty good. Based purely on entertainment, this was like five stars for me. I normally hate stories where people switch places, but since the focus was only on one person, it didn’t bother me this time. I loved the whole idea of twins switching at the altar and trying to fool the husband. It was such a cute premise and I found myself easily flipping through the pages. Admittedly, it wasn’t [...]


    21. Yet another audio book listened to on the strength of the narrator -- Bianca Amato -- and that it was part of my freebie month with the audible romance package.Leaving out the basic premise of the story -- which I will get to in a minute -- the romance between the couple, their time spent together and the build of their love story is really good. Even the reaction of the husband once he finds out what happens is good romance novel fare.However the premise was so bonkers unbelievable that I could [...]


    22. DNF- honestly I couldn't get past the honeymoon sceneway too traumatizing. I just don't care enough to continue and it's been over a year since I started.


    23. Enjoyable. Entertaining. Cute.Over all, this book wasn't terrible. There really were no overt dry spells where the plot drug on painfully, no excess unnecessary fluff, and the characters- for their part- were decently constructed. Essentially being an insane love triangle without the love, Violet and Jeannette are twins and the book kicks off with Jeannette's wedding to Adrian. OnlyViolet is Jeannette. Pretty much for 3/4 of the book, Violet spends all her energy and concern ensuring Adrian neve [...]


    24. ~ SPOILERS ~I wish Violet would have more of a backbone as the book progressed. Alas, she came across as a puppet on her childish, selfish, pouty, dreadful, willful, deceitful, manipulative & domineering – Did I leave out any adjectives here ? LOL… - twin sister’s string all the way ‘till the end. There were only 2 occasions where she showed any bravado @ all, by rescuing a much-abused & starved doggie & also later on standing up to the hard-arse bullying housekeeper, in defe [...]


    25. Having twins and triplets in the family, I have a weakness for stories that include them. The caveat being the category romances. They tend to be too OTT.Everyone who has been around a set of identicals have had the similar experience of being fooled by the Big switch. Boyfriends are primarily the targets. It's a psychologists wet dream.The dominate in this case, Jeannette had her passive twin Violet marry her fiancé. Violet loved Adrian for so long and used the possible outbreak of scandal as [...]


    26. I listened to the audio book version of Husband Trap. The narrator, Bianca Amato, was excellent. Her portrayal of the emotions and inflections was perfect, and added to the wonderful characters created by the author. I liked the unusual story arc…beginning with the wedding in Chapter 1, and the unusual twists and turns throughout. By the end, the characters of Kit and Violet felt like family, though for me it was a little harder to like Duke Adrian. He spent a good portion of the book thunderi [...]


    27. I admit I loved the book because i have a weakness for anything with twin-switching or gender bender heroine. But that does not mean i gave this book 5 stars just because of that. I thought this book was rather really well written. The heroine discovers the strenght and confident to get out of her shell since she is shy and all and tried to act like her sister, UGHHH!!!! that cunning, selfish witch!!! All through the book i came to hate her more and more; she was selfish, unfeeling, and very imm [...]


    28. Interesting premise, which is what made me pick it up, but it didn't take me long to get annoyed with this. The idea of identical twins switching places at the altar is just too deceitful and to make matters worse, there wasn't enough buildup to it. The story begins at the altar and then starts doing some choppy flashbacks to try to fill in the details. This story may have worked much better if it had rewound and started with shy Violet, watching the duke from afar while he flirted with her sist [...]


    29. Ah, romance novels, sometimes I love them, sometimes I hate them, but they are always a guarantee for mindless escapism. I started reading this one and realized it was the first in a series and that I had read the third book during my last romance novel phase, though I couldn't remember it very well.This one was, of course, absurd. Twins switch places at the alter so that the groom, unbeknownst to him, marries the wrong girl. I liked the heroine but the hero was too stereotypical and I didn't li [...]
