Review: Chasing the Other Tisdale

For this Review, I chose Chasing the Other Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson, which is my first book I read by this author.  I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Goodreads Description:
She’s the other sister . . .

Overshadowed by the beauty of her older sister, Lillian is better known as the other Tisdale; unremarkable and unsure how she will ever deliver on the promise of her family's name.

He’s a rake in need of reforming . . .

Will Colton leads a frivolous existence, embracing notoriety instead of managing his family’s fortune. Determined to forget his financial burden and his father’s growing resentment, he maintains a lifestyle dedicated to pleasure and self-indulgence.

When Will is invited to the Tisdale estate for an extended holiday, he never expects to become friends with the forgettable Lillian. But when a family secret comes to light, he must choose between leaving London and protecting the honor of one woman or staying and risking the reputation of another.

Upon his return, Will finds the girl he left behind has come out of the shadows and into her own. Lillian’s finally the center of attention, and not all of it good. With his own reputation in tatters, can a reformed rake lure her out of the hands of London's bachelors and back into his own arms? Can he escape his past and reclaim her heart, or has he lost her forever?

It took me awhile to get into this book because I am not used to the period of time that this book is written in, but once I read more and more, I fell in love with the characters of Miss Lillian and Mr Colton.  

My favorite part of the book is the letters that Miss Lillian and Mr Colton wrote to one another.  I think this book was about following your dreams and not setting for second best.  Miss Lillian wanted to be wanted, to be loved.  She was tired of being referred as "The Other Tisdale" when she has a name, feelings, and her own personality.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.  I love this book more than I thought I would.  I can not wait to read Book #1 (Compromising Miss Tisdale) and Book #2 (Taming Miss Tisdale).
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
