Book Description:
The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.
Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.
Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?

When I read a book with a love triangle I tend to easily pick a side. Sometimes though I will pick what I like from each person and combine them into my own hybrid of a man. In Down To You though, I was completely torn for a good chunk of the book on who to choose. Cash and Nash have some differences but also similar aspects as well. It was definitely hard to choose between the two. I can completely understand how Olivia was so torn.
Cash was just that all American bad boy and I wanted to devour him. He owned a nightclub and rode a motorcycle and I am sure looked great on it. Nash was the smart sensible guy that you could tell wanted out of his stuffy business clothes and have a little fun once and awhile. I just wanted a Cash/Nash sandwich. The Sex Scenes in Down To You were hot, delicious, and indescribable. You could feel the intensity and passion off the pages. I will never look at public bathrooms or four wheelers the same and that is a good thing.
I read Scandalicious Review on Down To You and have to agree with her thoughts on Olivia.
“ “Olivia Townsend is nothing special” Really? I beg to differ. Olivia is beautiful, in an unassuming girl next door kind of way.”- ScandaliciousReviews
I think we can all agree Olivia is not just some ordinary girl; she is definitely something more than “nothing special”. I do wish Olivia was not settling in life. I can’t tell if she is making herself happy or just trying to please others. Olivia works hard in life and is exceptional in everything she does. Marissa was so mean and vindictive towards her and I honestly think it was because she was jealous of Olivia. Olivia’s friends were a hoot and it was crazy to see Ginger with a sex drive of a 20 something woman. Some of the things that came out of Ginger’s mouth were hysterical. I hope to be as fiesty as her when I get older.
The big twist that came from this book has me still speechless. I saw this book going one way and being completely predictable. I was so wrong, Down To You decided to slap me in the face with this big curve ball. I still don’t understand how I missed it when there were signs. I felt like Down To You had this perfect ending and then I read the epilogue. I was so confused about what was going on but it smells like trouble. I really don’t want anything bad to happen but I have no idea how things will go. I am so glad I have Up To Me on my kindle because I need to know what happens next.
