Blurb: Scott Tate has a problem. When his twin brother Sawyer calls and asks to crash at Scott’s place for a few days, Scott has no idea that the feelings he has for his brother would surface so quickly. But a forbidden desire this strong cannot be controlled.

Now, after spending most of his life pushing Sawyer away for fear of showing his true feelings, Scott is faced with the toughest decision of his life—either admit to his twin that he’s in love with him… or ask Sawyer to leave for good.

When the world tells you that the love you feel is wrong… can two men find the courage to make it right?

Review: So, this is my second time reading this author. I have to say, I’m liking her style. I usually go for the longer reads – I tend to like a lot of meat (no pun intended) in my stories – but I’m really enjoying Ms. Lace’s novellas.

This is a twincest story and may not be for everyone, so please read the blurb carefully to know what you’re getting yourself into. You have been warned.

What I like most about these taboo stories is the understanding behind the characters. I like going through the process with them; the confusion they go through when they realize they love their sibling more than is socially acceptable. Typically, shorter stories don’t let us see that process, so it feels as though we’re missing a big chunk, but that isn’t the case with When a Twin Peeks. This author knows how to get a full story in with very few words. I loved it.

The brothers in this story are Sawyer and Scott. One’s a fireman and the other a doctor. One keeps the other at a distance because of his feelings. The other comes back after his divorce to the only person that matters, his brother. The story is told through Scott’s POV. We are privy to his escalating emotions and anxiety over having his brother in such close proximity. How will he ever get through this without letting on how he really feels?

I felt the author did a great job in conveying Scott’s feelings for Sawyer. She does this with a lot of inner dialogue, which translated into him being flustered every time he talked to or was around Sawyer. It felt genuine and sincere and charming. When Scott finally comes clean to Sawyer, Sawyer shuts him up in the best way possible; that was with true emotion, it was real, and I felt it.

I also enjoyed the sprigs of humor throughout the book. It kept the tone light, where otherwise the story would’ve been too serious and heavy. Kudos to the author for keeping it on the bright side.

Oh, and that mess at the end…uh oh. I like drama and action, but I think we could’ve had a more appropriate ending for our two men. Just saying.

So again I say this; not reading a certain sub-genre because it may make you uncomfortable is your prerogative. But wow, you’re really missing out.
