I met Fred first.

Fred: Hot. Enigmatic. Alex’s first friend in her lonely new town. Maybe her first…everything.

I met Adina the following Monday.

Adina: Fred’s twin sister. Cold. Troubled. Trouble.

I kissed him.

She pressed her mouth to my mouth.

People warn Alex to steer clear of the twins, but Alex is drawn to them. She wants to be part of their crazy world…no matter the consequences.

My Thoughts:

I was super lucky to meet Lauren at the WeHo book fair last September. She was super adorable and the kind of down to earth woman you want to have coffee with. I admit that maybe I am a smidgen biased because I adored her so much but that doesn't take away how super this book was!

For me this was uncharted territory. A almost threesome like fling. It was twisted but in a great way. The way the story was written made it a quick read. The chapters were pretty short so I found myself playing the "one more chapter" game. The characters made me excited to read and the story kept you on your toes. Towards the end I figured out what would happen but I still wouldn't take back reading a page of this delicious novel!

This was interesting! It literally took me two hours to read, and I too kept saying "just one more chapter"!
