Another winner from Scott. This was a quick read for me, one that I fell into quickly and enjoyed every page. Scott has a great way of voicing the main characters, making them relatable, and providing a natural ebb and flow to the relationship that the reader ends up rooting for. I really enjoyed this book. Perfect for a weekend afternoon. I cannot wait to sit down and read it again.
This story held me entranced. I just kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. Then I wanted to see the blow back because of the switch. And Oo La La did it drop! Not quite what I was expecting but HeLLO….talk about embarrassing and devastating. I had many feelings about these characters. They made me wonder and brought me joy. I also was frustrated at the situation along with fascinated with the art aspect. Hudson…Hudson..Hudson you are a wonderful man. I didn’t like you a first because of you womanizing ways but you redeemed yourself a couple times over. Abby I was concerned you would be too much of a pushover but you showed me that responsibility can pay off.
This is a first time author for me. I loved the idea of this story. It held up to my ideals. The story flowed along nicely and the characters were what kept me coming back and wanting more. This is a wonderful story that kept me guessing.
The Bad Twin by Avery Scott grabbed my attention from the moment it showed up on my recommended book feed. I couldn’t wait to dive in and find out what this book was all about. To say that I enjoyed this story is an understatement- I F-LOVED it! It was such a fun read- with a sweet, romantic, and emotional story that had just the right amount of drama and angst to keep things really interesting. There was so much to love about this book as the story delved into mistaken identity, family ties, sibling bonds, secrets, recrimination, guilt, passion, love, longing, courage, acknowledgement, discovery, being true to yourself, and chasing dreams.
Ms. Scott paints such a vivid picture- she took me on a sightseeing tour of Paris, creating such rich, vivid imagery- it felt like I was watching a movie and ‘seeing’ the story, instead of reading it.
Abagail Levesque is the practical, responsible, and reliable sister- while her identical twin is more of a spontaneous wild child. Abby had been struggling to make ends meet, especially so since losing her job recently in a company takeover. With a mortgage payment due sooner that she’d like- Abby is worried that they may lose their home. So when her sister’s boss turns up at the house expecting Gabby (her twin) to be packed and ready for a very important business trip to Paris, Abby is left with no choice but to assume her sister’s identity and try to salvage the situation- as Gabby seems to have gone AWOL. She’s totally unprepared for the job- and she’s going to have to ‘fake it till she makes it’. But not before making a few potentially costly mistakes- and falling for her ‘boss’ in the process.
Hudson Quinn is a bit of a playboy billionaire, who has a bit of a heavy heart. He’s under a lot of pressure to make sure an incredibly lucrative deal goes through without a hitch. He thought he’d hired the perfect person to assist him with the task- but he’s beginning to suspect that hiring her is just another mistake to add to his long list of failures. But their time in Paris has him questioning a lot of things, including his feelings. But what happens when things go off the rails? Can they salvage the situation? What happens when secrets are revealed? Will everything work out- or will it all end in emptiness and regret?
I loved Hudson and Abby right from the beginning- they were really interesting and incredibly endearing! I didn’t like Gabby much- she was so irresponsible, self-indulgent, spiteful, and careless. Even after she’d ‘turned over a new leaf’ I was still annoyed with her.
The story is told from duel perspectives- which gave me a complete ‘picture’ of what was happening and how the characters were feeling. It has such a great pace, and a wonderfully smooth flow- the story was incredibly easy to read, and I devoured it in a matter of hours.
The ending is perfect!!
Can not wait to read whatever Ms. Scott does next! I’m going to be all over it like white on rice!
Thank you, Ms. Scott!

Being the good twin isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Abby Levesque knows that better than anyone. While her sister drifts through life carefree, Abby’s left to clean up her messes. The latest mess? Hudson Quinn— the hot, angry billionaire on her doorstep demanding she accompany him to Paris. He’s obviously mistaken her for her twin, Gabrielle, who happens to be his assistant. Too bad Gabrielle is nowhere to be found. If Abby wants to fix her sister’s latest blunder, she’ll have to pretend to be someone else for two weeks—preferably someone who isn’t wildly attracted to her mercurial boss… As far as Hudson’s concerned, his sexy-but-flaky new personal assistant is just another in a long line of terrible decisions and failures in his life. But he’s working on the deal of a lifetime—a deal that could change everything for him—and he needs her help to close it. The last thing he ever expected was to connect with her on a soul-deep level. Falling in love wasn’t part of the job, and when Hudson finds out who she really is, Abby’s terrified he’ll never forgive her. With a billion dollar deal—and both their hearts—on the line, can Abby convince Hudson she’s the right twin for him?

Too Hot to Handle (The Catch #3) by Avery Scott
5 out of 5 stars
This is the first book that I have read by this author Too Hot To Handle is the third book in the Catch series written by Ms. Scott. I simply fell in love with this couple Tony and Georgia. They were an awesome couple. The Main characters are well written and simply great. I loved there quirks. The story line was great and different.
Georgia “Gigi” Sinclair has it all in the spot light. Just look at her social media feed. It’s full of designer clothes, first class travel and snapshots of her TV-star fiancé. But behind the scenes, things are a bit more complicated.
Tony is a hot firefighter all his friends are getting tied down and he’s still the resident playboy, so his inner monologue is entertaining but when he meets Georgia the sparks fly and Tony wants to play with fir when it comes to Georgia.
These two come from different worlds can they make it? Can Tony help Georgia? Will they have a happily ever after.
You need to read this great book…
Too Hot to Handle by Avery Scott is the third book in the Catch series. I wasn’t sure what to expect since this is the first book in the series I’ve read. I discovered that each of these books can be read as a standalone, though the previous book is referenced.
Tony, oh what can I say about Tony? He is an amazing guy, very sweet but not looking for a relationship. Oh and he’s a firefighter. Sigh…..
Georgia is a hot mess but as you get to know her you discover why that is. She puts up with a lot more from family than she should. I would definitely do things a bit different if I were her.
I got the impression that this may be the last book in the series but a girl can dream right?
Too hot to handle by Avery Scott was a great read. There wasn’t to much of anything in it. I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from this author. This was a happy read for me.
Tony is at a VIP event for “Catch” a friends reality tv show airing and all he really wants to do is be home or some place quieter. He spots a gorgeous girl trying to get into the VIP area and the bouncers are giving her a hard time. She’s clearly drunk and Tony decides to help her by saying she is with him so they will allow her to the VIP area.
Georgia is a woman who was recently engaged to someone who was on the reality show and basically just forgot he was engaged and is now engaged to someone new. A real jerk if you ask me. Georgia hasn’t had an easy life. She’s always trying to fit into a mold of what her step mother and step sisters are like. She reminds me of Cinderella a bit.
The night at the club, Tony sees her obviously under a lot of stress and takes her home but doesn’t try anything. He’s a perfect gentleman. The next morning they part ways only to run into each other again when Tony goes on a EMS call. What are the odds? Fate has a funny way of making things like this happen.
Tony and Georgia become friends and Tony decides to help Georgia win back the love of Chaz. They act like a couple when they go out hoping to make Chaz jealous. There’s only one problem with that plan. Georgia is beautiful and Tony is a sweet, amazingly sexy firefighter and they are beyond attracted to each other. What will happen when Chaz and Georgia are face to face again? What will happen when Tony and Georgia give it a shot as a couple and then Tony finds out about how Georgia and Chaz ran into each other when Tony abruptly left after her family treats him like garbage? Definitely a great read you won’t want to miss out on. 5 stars!!!

Too Hot to Handle – Avery Scott
Too Hot to Handle by Avery Scott is a truly fiery romance read! This is my first book by this author, but it certainly won’t be my last as I thoroughly enjoyed this one from start to finish. This is the third book in The Catch series, a series I want to continue diving into.
Though this was a shorter read I felt it was really well rounded and had plenty of detail making it easy for me to picture everything playing out in my mind. Plus, I found that the story itself flowed seamlessly and I was able to really connect with the characters.
I look forward to starting book 1 ASAP, this is a romance read I would recommend to others.
