I absolutely loved this book, and I think you will too. Well done Heather x❤x
Gina and Jeffrey, what a couple of people. Both have broken parts to them that can’t simply be glued back together. Jeffrey is a widow raising his two girls and trying to survive a life without the woman he loved completely. Gina is a woman who doesn’t trust any man and is only willing to spend one night with a man. She can’t comprehend getting something as nasty as feelings all over her, oh no, she’s way above those stinky little things…or so she thinks.
‘I LOVE MEN. Young men. Ones who aren’t looking for anything more than a good time. Cuz I am nothing if not a good time.’
Whilst on a cruise, these two dramatic characters clash over a difference of opinion. Forced to spend time together, they become arousingly aware of each other and cannot put the breaks on their passionate trysts. No strings, no emotions, just good old-fashioned sex. His only rule is that his children don’t know what is going on. Jeffrey is guilt ridden and bereft. The way he reacts and feels through particular scenes on page resonate profoundly. He is so torn between the past and the here and now, and because of this makes so many blindingly obvious mistakes. He frustrated and angered me at times with how he treated Gina. She isn’t disposable or just a mere receptacle for his desires and lust, but yet at times that was all he attempted to feel for her, which to me was total bull and so beneath him. It isn’t Gina’s fault how he feels and yet he cheapens her and makes her feel wrong.
Gina, on the other hand, is such an honest person. She has her family and close friends she adores. So much hilarity in this book is between Gina, Spencer (her bestfriend) Cooper (Spencers husband) and their children. The children are part of most of the funniest scenes in this book. Children being children, saying what only innocent children can really get away with. Their innocence is so darn sweet, I was at true risk of sugar shock.
This book is chock full of emotional triggers and landmines that Gina and Jeffrey have to maneuver through. Their relationship changes so minutely that I’m sure neither wanted to admit that it wasn’t what they had initially planned out. Human beings are so fickle and yet make life so very hard for themselves.
‘…and her body melts into mine. I’m not sure what’s happening between us. All I know is that this feels too good to let it go.’
The sexy scenes in this book are hot enough to burn the fingers of any reader, and I was no exception. For his age, Jeffrey really does put a lot of younger men to shame if you know what I mean.
Doppelbanger, a title that peeked my interest even before reading the blurb; a romcom so good I finished it in nearly one sitting, darn sleep I wish I could go without when I have a great book made me ugly cry and sob my heart out. I didn’t even see the heartbreak coming until I was in the midst of it. Kindle in one hand and tissue in the other. I don’t often read romcoms as they aren’t usually by romance sub-genre of choice, but Doppelbanger was such a good read I would have been upset to miss out. The epilogue was a thing of beauty and for me the best part of this epic read. Thank you Ms Orgeron for such an amazing read, you did the characters so much justice and never stepped off the true path of the characters.
Let me begin with Gina…this woman owns the room when she walks in it! She is tiny, hence the nickname, Tink, Jeffrey gives her. Her personality IS GIANT!!!! She is in her mid-thirties, and she is still enjoying the single life. She has a type, usually 20-something and most definitely not into commitment! When she meets Jeffrey on a cruise she is taking with her godsons, he is the complete opposite of who she is normally attracted to. He is a CEO of a successful company, has two daughters, and is way too serious for her. Yet, the sparks fly between them.
Jeffrey is successful and a wonderful father. His daughters are his world. When he finds his older daughter kissing one of Gina’s godsons, he is appalled. He is even more appalled when he finds Gina and tells her what he saw. Instead of being upset, she is congratulating him on his first kiss. He finds her crass and over-the-top. Yet, he has never met a woman like her, and he is desperately attracted to her. As they spend more time together, the chemistry and lust grow. The two agree on a no-strings fling while on vacation. Those agreements work so well, don’t they? As you might guess, this couple can’t forget one another, but can they take a leap of faith and find their HEA? It is quite a journey they took me on, but I relished every single moment of it!
If you are a reader who enjoys slapstick comedy but also enjoy some steam and a really SWEET romance, you will not be disappointed in this book! I LOVED the epilogues…yes, you get two! Orgeron knows how to expertly combine romance, sex, comedy, and fantastic characters that make this one of my favorite romantic reads of the year!!!
