One girl. Twin brothers. An uncommon triangle.

When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport—twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia.

Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone—a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable and intensely passionate—and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else.

However, Olivia is in for a surprise. These boys have a secret that should make her run away as far and as fast as she can. If only it wasn't too late. A sensual game between three players has begun, and it's about to spin deliriously out of control.

I really don’t know what to say on this one. I was initially interested because I loved the idea of this novel and the reviews seem quite favorable. I mean, an angsty love triangle with twin brothers as the potential love interests? Sign me up! But after an okay beginning the book just nosedived. The book felt like something thrown together real quick. Each character had zero substance whatsoever. ZERO. Three POVs and the only thing I can tell you about anyone is how much they wanted sex and lusted after each other. Even the actual plot lead to nothing. The twist was obvious to me as well and I kept holding on that when we got to that point in the reveal that there would be some sort of redemption for the book. But it fell flat and then it ended before I thought it would, and should. I guess if you are just looking to read sex and lust, than this is the book for you. Just don’t expect to find much else.

She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books.
