It Would be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't It?) by Sophie Ranald

It Would Be Wrong to Steal My Sister's Boyfriend (Wouldn't it?)

You live together, laugh together, borrow her shoes and eyeliner – is there anything you can’t share with your sister?

Ellie’s younger sister Rose has it all. She’s beautiful, stylish and dates gorgeous, glamorous millionaires, while Ellie is quite happy watching TV on the sofa with her old mate Ben. But when Rose brings her new boyfriend home, it’s lust at first sight for Ellie. And although she knows it’s wrong, everything changes: she’ll do whatever it takes to get Oliver, even if it means abandoning her principles and turning a deaf ear to her friends. After all, would it be so wrong to take up running, put some highlights in her hair and make herself look a tiny, little bit more like Rose? But as Ellie follows in her sister’s stiletto-heeled footsteps, she realises that finding love could mean losing the most important thing in the world.


I found it interesting to see the sister relationship between Ellie and Rose, and how they were so different but maybe longed to be a little more like the other. Hence, some of the transformations Ellie goes through in the book. She becomes polished and shiny on the outside, but what matters is on the inside, because it would be wrong to steal your sister's boyfriend, after all. Ellie had me holding my breath, thinking "will she or won't she", and I was afraid I would be disappointed in her character. That means I was engaged and involved, very good. The relationships and settings were very realistic, and the characters were well developed. One of my favorite characters was young Ben, and a favorite scene - he is in a fancy restaurant demanding a meal from McDonald's in no polite manner that I could repeat here. Gave me a chuckle.
I enjoyed this story. I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
