Genre: Enemies to Lovers/MFM
Release Date: August 5, 2022

I’m not normal.
I’ll never be normal.
But spending my life hiding behind closed curtains just doesn’t work anymore. I want to live, really live. Like feel warm sand beneath my toes, the sun on my face, and laughter inside my heart, live.
Stepping outside was the hard part.
Falling for my neighbor, easier than I thought. But finding out my neighbor has a twin brother that wants me too?
I’m not sure I’m ready for both of them, but I can’t give either of them up.

What happens when they find out how broken I am? That I’ll never be normal?

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Whilst this was a MFM read, with sexy twins it was so much more than that.

Asra is a complex character who has been diagnosed with a chronic illness that can be brought on by alcohol, stress or the sun. Most people don't understand and she lives a lonely life because of this. Her days are turned upside down for the most part so she can avoid most of the sun in the day. As a book cover designer she can work as flexibly as she needs to.

When Breckin and Brendan move in next door, her life becomes even more as she is attracted to them but they do things that annoy her greatly. So much so that they become borderline enemies. But the men want Asra in their lives, in their hearts and in their beds. When they find out about Asra's condition they are incredible - we need more Brekin and Brendan's in the world. They were kind, considering, caring and protective but they were equally keen to show Asra at every opportunity how they felt for her both inside and outside the bedroom. They found ways to give her experiences that didn't trigger her illness but most importantly they didn't treat her any less and instead they treated her some more.

Whilst this was an MFM read and there is plenty of heat and sizzle coming out but this was more than that. This was a sweet and mature read.

We all live in the illusions of our own realities. Cassandra's reality lies between the quiet bridge of complex and chaotic. A single mother to two amazing boys, graphic artist, author, avid home gardener, baker, reader, and introvert, her hats are many. A refined goth, she's obsessed with tattoos, shoes, hair dye, chocolate, metal and hip-hop music, and all things dark and creepy except bugs, those are too creepy. Each of her books contains a piece of her reality. Tiny fragments laced with forbidden romance, defining miniature slices of her truths.
