Book Review: One True Thing by Piper Vaughn and M.J. O'Shea

One True Thing (One Thing, #2)From the blurb:

Dustin Davis spent years wishing for a prince but kissing frog after slimy frog. When he sees Archer Kyriakides for the first time, Dusty thinks his luck has finally changed. Archer could be The One. But their hot and cold romance leaves Dusty confused: why does it feel right one moment and wrong the next? It doesn’t make sense—until the day Dusty meets Archer’s identical twin, Asher, and realizes he’s been seeing them both. 
Asher Kyriakides dreams of being a fashion photographer, but he’s stuck with a job he hates and an irresponsible playboy brother whose habits drive him absolutely insane, especially when he finds out Archer is dating the cute little blond Asher can’t seem to forget. Torn between loyalty and desire, Asher does nothing but try to warn Dusty away. 
But when Archer finally goes too far, Dusty turns to Asher for comfort, and Asher knows he can’t refuse. It isn’t long before they realize they’re falling fast, but more than one thing stands in their way, not the least of which is Archer, who isn’t quite ready to stop being a thorn in his brother’s side.

Heather's rating:

This story was a bit of a let down. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it and the delicious fluffiness that is Piper and M.J.'s writing, but it didn't resonate with me.

I had a few big negatives. I didn't love how pushover-y Asher was and I think Archer was a bit too villainous. It didn't quite feel real. I'm sad to say but I also think that the sex was... not that hot (gasp!). Maybe it is because I think of Dusty as somewhat childlike. He seemed too innocent, too pure. The sex scenes just felt sort of... wrong to me. The instalove also rubbed me the wrong way.
I think I was more disappointed because I'm obsessed with the Lucky Moon series from these two authors. It gave me ridiculously high expectations for this series as well, and perhaps I unfairly compare the two. While the writing here was still wonderfully sweet, it just fell a bit short.
