Blurb: Growing up gay in a small town with no mother, Evan Savage learned the hard way to cherish his secrets above all else. Now he’s 18, not even his father can hurt him anymore. When his long-lost twin brother Brennan shows up out of nowhere looking for a new home, Evan’s world, and his very identity, comes crashing down around him all over again. Brennan treats nothing as sacred in his search for a family connection after their mother’s death.
Frustrated and reckless, anonymous sexual encounters are just the first step on a journey of self-discovery for both Evan and Brennan. The sweetness of first love with twin brothers Alek and Luka leads them find in each other things they never knew they had lost…
…and lures them all into danger.
Review: I must admit that this book was read purely for the shock value and taboo theme. I wasn’t expecting much of a story and was totally okay with that…but imagine my surprise when there was indeed a plot and characterization to go along with those totally hot sex scenes. I ended up really wanting to see what was going to happen next in the drama laden life that was suddenly and unexpectedly thrust upon Brennan and Evan.
Can you imagine finding out after 18 years that you have an identical twin that was intentionally kept secret from you? And imagine that your entire life felt “off” because something was missing and you didn’t know what or why? That is what happened to Evan. What caused him to take drastic measures that could have had permanent devastating repercussions. Brennan seemed to have fared better in their parents’ deception, but he was still in rough shape. They both needed strong men to guide them and get them back on track. Who knew they would fall for the same guy…or did they?
Luka and Aleksy are the other set of identical twins. These two are a little older, much bigger, and absolutely dirty, dirty boys. They were so delicious…yet so naughty, so wrong, but also so freaking hot at the same time. The idea of two sets of identical twins captured my attention. The idea of two sets of incestuous identical twins was a pull that I just couldn’t ignore. Yep, it was so wrong, it was a train wreck I couldn’t look away from, and I am quite sure nothing I read will ever shock me again.
If you can put away your real life preconceived emotions related to taboo love, then I think many people would enjoy this story. I don’t normally read twincest or incest, not that I am against it, but it just doesn’t call to me…this story screamed for me, and I enjoyed every single sinning moment. Now, I am going to read the sequel. Yep, I am thoroughly corrupted…and it feels so goooood.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
