Review: Allure of the O’Neal Sisters by Emily Bowie

Publication Date: September 9, 2015

Series: Standalone

Rating: 4 Stars 

Official Blurb: The O’Neal sisters have very different personalities. Payton, the wild child who doesn’t think through her actions, and Lilly, the one who gets Payton out of trouble. Deception, secrets and lies surround them when Jack Hewitt enters their lives. 

Jack is a long time thug who built himself up into the Castle family crime ring. His goal is to take as much as he can, destroying everyone in his path. Lilly, who just suffered a broken heart, falls for Jack. Unbeknownst to Lilly, Jack is playing her sister as well. 
Payton’s life begins to spiral out of control the moment Jack entered it. Her relationship with her sister, her career and her first true love slip away from her with each choice she makes without help from her sister and the people closest to her she could unwillingly vanish without a trace. 

This was a great debut novel by Emily. It was packed from start to finish with suspense, lies, and secrets. Payton and Lilly are complete opposites. Payton is more of the wild child that doesn’t think just does as to where Lilly is more conservative and always tries to make the right choices. Somehow Lilly is always getting Payton out of trouble but when Jack comes into both girls lives both seem to lose focus on everything.

It’s hard to explain this book because I don’t want to give away any of the book. Jack is a HUGE prick. I didn’t like him one single bit. He came into both girls’ lives thinking he was completely unstoppable. Not only does Lilly find herself in a tough situation but also Payton is in an even worse situation. Jack is tearing Payton and Lilly’s relationship apart and secrets are starting to unfold quickly. There are a lot of secondary characters that play huge parts throughout the book. This book kept me on my toes and guessing from start to finish. I am looking forward to more books by Emily in the future!
