Blurb
I buried my twin sister six months after she found out she had cancer. Her funeral was three months ago. Today is our birthday and it started with delivery of letters from her.

It seems she didn’t trust me to move on after her death. She knows me too well. But how can I go on when my other half is just…gone? That’s not something I can recover from with a snap of my fingers. But I also can’t ignore her instructions even though I’d be perfectly content to cuddle up with my buddy, Johnnie Walker, and call it a year.

She has a list of things for me to do and there are rules attached.

There’s one major problem besides the fact it’s been three months since I left the house. I have to do all these things with her jerk of an ex, Hawk Simmons. He abandoned her shortly after she found out she was sick. If that wasn’t enough to make this a really bad idea, the fact that he makes an appearance in all my nighttime fantasies probably does.

I don’t think I can do this, but I owe it to my sister’s memory to try.

Review
I was looking forward to reading and reviewing this book. I loved the idea behind it, not so sure about the book itself.
Christi Snow is a wonderful author and I have read many of her books. This one starts out great. The connection between twins for most is strong and to lose what you consider your other half is devastating. Her descriptions of grief really brings you in with feeling empathy for Ethan. I just didn’t like how Ethan and Hawk are forced to spend time together or else…… And I really didn’t like that the author has Hawk hooking up with what I assumed was an escort in the middle of the story for no reason that I could see.
The supporting cast in this story is creative genius on the author’s part. I really think I connected more with them than the 2 MC’s. They bring such lighthearted moments to what could have been a very angst/woe is me story. I hope Ms Snow writes a book on some of the secondary characters, I for one would read them.
