When they first met Lord Jeremy William Radcliffe, Charlie and her twin sister, Elizabeth were escaping from their uncle-taking turns acting the young gentleman to avoid detection. But Charlie couldn't help falling head over heels-and out of a window-for the handsome lord. Of course, that was only the beginning; Lord Radcliffe insisted on showing "him" and her lovely sister to London. But how could he do that? With every touch, Radcliffe seemed unknowingly to incite indecent desires in Charlie, and his fraternal intent was certain to land her in a fine mess. Though it was a great game to play a boy, there was more fun in being female. And after one brush of his fiery lips when her guise was gone, Charlie swore to be nothing but his fiery woman forevermore.… (lisätietoja)

I enjoyed the first 3/4 of this book then I lost interest. The story bogged down and bit and it started to feel totally unbelievable. I loved Sands's other books, this one just fell a little flat. Still a fan though and I will continue to read more by her. ( )

This book was amazing! I felt the author did a wonderful job both in developing the characters and in creating a believable and fast paced environment. So much happened in the book I am surprised that it is not longer than 1000 pages. I loved all of the characters and the chemistry between them! This book was just awesome, nuff said. ( )

Fleeing terrible marriages their greedy uncle arranged, they find themselves under Lord Radcliffe's protection, with one of the twins disguising themselves as a young man. Jeremy is disturbed by his attraction to the young man. It's a farce as the two women switch from pretending to be a man to protect themselves and still find a suitable husband to spare themselves from their uncle's deadly choices. If that wasn't enough, there is also Charlie's attempts to save the unfortunate and stop injustice.

Lynsay Sands is always amusing and this book was no exception. Despite being utterly implausible, I chuckled and was amused. ( )

SO, /this/ story... Not a great read for me. First, a quick description: The Switch is a tale involving twin sisters, Charlie and Beth, on the run from a horrible uncle who is selling them as brides to the highest bidder -- men who happen to be elderly and/or abusive. Naturally, Charlie and Beth hit upon a GENIUS [/sarcasm] plan: one of them will dress up as a boy and they will run away to...somewhere. During their ill-planned escape, the twins run into total stranger and thankfully not a serial killer Lord Radcliffe, who offers to save them from their troubles by secretly housing them in his London townhouse.


What could ever go wrong with this plan, one might inquire.

Well, the rest of the book is shenanigans while cross-dressing. Which I normally love. The problem? For me, everything. This book is an old-school read, for sure. I am not a huge fan of the old school of romance, so this book went over like a stone for me.

Let's start with Charlie: the twee-est, most annoying heroine I've read about in ages. She can DO things for herself, damn you. Except for the small detail that she is so incompetent that it's a wonder she manages to survive the day, let alone pull off anything more complicated. Definitely TSTL in the style of a Disney princess. I say Disney princess because, during the book, Charlie accumulates this sad, misfit army of supporters whose ranks consist of poor little rich girls, abused servants, puppies, accidental sex professionals and traumatized children, all of whom she holds to her bosom and nurses back to life, in the way that no one alive has ever done or will ever do, in the history of realistic human behavior. Charlie is the WORST. She hides things from the hero for no reason. She decides sisters can do it for themselves, which is admirable, but she can't do anything for herself, she's like a newborn baby, and it's not endearing because she's written as being magical and lovely despite behaving like a complete infant moron.


Ugh, Charlie. What I kept asking myself as she lurched from one dumb escapade to the next.

And Lord Radcliffe? I don't know much about him. He's obviously not a MENSA candidate, considering that he couldn't tell the heroine was a girl for like 85% of the book. There's not much description about him either. Is he tall or short? Fat, thin or fit? Blonde or brunette? No idea because he wasn't described at all that I read. Or else I snoozed through it, so same thing. Also, his dialogue was pretty lackluster and wooden. I kept wondering if he was going to transform from puppet into real boy anytime soon, so I could start enjoying him more. Alas, it was not to be.


Without any description to guide me, this is how I ended up picturing Lord Radcliffe.

As the romance was terrible and chemistry-free, I didn't feel anything from this book but sad disappointment. The writing wasn't terribly great, either; the plot was meandering, silly and boring. I'd give this a pass, unless you have a high tolerance for TSTL heroines, mediocre writing and badly characterized heroes. ( )
