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.

The hot scenes were great, but the characters are flat and redundant. What irked me most was that they are depicted as these saints/martyrs but do some reprehensible things to the cousin, who might be the most interesting character of all. I'm drawn into book two for cliff hanger. Narration saved this for me.
It's not that the narrators were bad, it's just that the choices of whoever directed this audio book I beliee, made not so good production decisions. Imagine the voice of a young, early twenties character in the book sounding like an older, seasoned actor over fifty. It doesn't mean the narrator has to be old but at least they can sound younger. Also think of a book narrated in first person by each actor playing their role, male and female. Then when the narration turns to the woman's point of view, that same woman narrates the male character, you know the one in his early twenties who sounds over fifty, in a lower octive voice. If this sounds confusing, so was the narration and performance.
A note to the author, please make sure you listen to who narrates your book. It truly makes a difference. Because of the confusing narration in two, make that three voices, I couldn't finish what was probably a good book. Maybe, I"ll read it, maybe.
No, kind of a romance with a twist but not really believable
A voice to the imagination
Would listen to a sequel though as it did leave you hanging
Hi! I'm a Math Teacher who has always loved Books with a mysterious, scientific, or other-worldly flare! Time travelers are also fun!
A good "take your mind off the world" read.
Tried the second one but only listened intermittently with other more substanative books.
The female reader's cadence made the female star sound a little ditzy, at best.
It struck me more as an R-Rated version of "50 Shades."
The book is great as a light read. Sometimes it's just what you need!
I didn't particularly like the book and haven't finished it.
I suppose if you like stories that are just this side of pornography then you would really like the book.
I can't really say.
Yes, to stop listening to it.
I ordered these books because I thought they were Crime Drama. My mistake. This is why I haven't downloaded the other books in the series.
The female voice.
Yes. I liked the story, but felt the voices didn't do it justice.
The female's voice was so annoying - weird intonations, word pronunciation, and staccato reading was very distracting. It was not smooth and flowing. Half a sentence was read at one pace and the other was rushed through to the point you couldn't understand it. The guy's voice was o.k., but I don't think it captured the tone of the male character.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This is a good story. I liked Olivia and Nash and Cash and their story was interesting…not something I've read before. I was actually surprised because I heard this was a cliffhanger and it’s not really. The relationship ends in a HEA but there’s a set up for the next book at the very end so maybe that’s what people thought was the cliffhanger.
Olivia is a small town girl that grew up on a sheep farm. Her mother abandoned her and her father when she was young. Olivia doesn't want to make her father feel like she’s abandoned him as well so she’s studying accounting and plans to go back home after college to help her father (even though he encourages her to make her own life). Olivia tends to be attracted to bad boys and had a bad split up with one, which makes her try to avoid them now.
Cash and Nash are twins. The twins have some history that’s not great and they've worked hard to move past that. Cash is a bar owner and plays the bad boy well. Nash is working on becoming a lawyer (currently an intern at a prestigious firm) and is a good boy. Nash is involved with Marissa, Olivia’s spoiled, rich lawyer cousin. He’s not majorly attracted to her (and knows she’s a real witch) but the relationship with her is good for his career so he deals with her. Cash works in his bar and seems to be a bad boy but we don’t actually see signs of him sleeping around.
Olivia’s roommate ditched on her and she lost her apartment so she ended up being forced to move in with her cousin, Marissa. Marissa is a horrible person and treats Olivia like crap but Olivia needs the inexpensive rent so she deals with it. Olivia meets Cash at a bar when he’s mistaken for a stripper for Olivia’s party (which is a bachelorette party for her friend) and there’s some major attraction between them. They flirt a bit but nothing happens between them. The next morning, Olivia wakes up and walks in to the kitchen to get coffee and meets Marissa’s boyfriend, who appears to be Cash, acting like he doesn't know her and nothing almost happened between them the night before. She confronts him, thinking he was trying to cheat on Marissa, only to find out that it’s actually Nash. She’s embarrassed and apologizes and they make nice with each other but there’s a strong attraction between them as well. Olivia is shocked at her reaction to both men and feels rather guilty about both, Nash because he’s involved with her cousin and Cash because she thinks he’s a bad boy that she’s sure would hurt her if given the chance. Olivia gets to know both Nash and Cash as time goes by. She was working at a bar that was an hour away but Cash gave her a good paying job at his bar (which is much to home). This allows her to see that maybe Cash isn't such a bad boy after all and she finds that her attraction to Cash is growing. The problem is that Nash also is helpful and nice and when they spend time together, she can’t stop her attraction from growing for him as well. Cash is very attracted to Olivia and tries to actively get her trust him and be with him. Nash knows he shouldn't be attracted to Olivia, especially because of Marissa, but he can’t stay away from Olivia or stop wanting her.
Things escalate for Olivia until Marissa goes on a trip out of town. It happens that (for different reasons), both Cash and Nash have keys to the apartment. Olivia wakes up in the night to find either Cash or Nash in her room and pulling down her blankets. She wants him (whichever brother he is) so she doesn't object but because the room is dark and the brothers are twins, Olivia can’t tell which brother it is. The next morning, Olivia’s night lover is gone and she still has no clue which one it was. She even speaks to both of them later in the morning but neither makes mention of it (even in innuendos) so she’s still unsure who she was with. The next day, Olivia gets news that her father was injured so she goes back home (only around an hour away) to tend to him for the weekend and help with the farm. Cash shows up unexpectedly, spending some time together and having sex (although Olivia still can’t tell for sure if Cash was the one she was with before). Cash is very sweet and to be honest, I got a little annoyed with Olivia because Cash was being nice but yet even though he’s never given her a reason to doubt him, Olivia is convinced that he’s a “bad boy” and therefore not good for her and bound to break her heart. Also, she kept wishing Cash was more like Nash which isn't fair because Cash hasn't done anything wrong...Olivia just assumes Cash will hurt her. But then other times, Olivia gets upset at Cash for putting himself down and thinks about the wonderful things about Cash. The back and forth is a bit annoying but I guess the story wouldn't work as well if Olivia was able to choose one of the brothers easily. The relationship confusion continues until Olivia encounters gets a major surprise that messes with everything she thought she knew. There’s some major drama at the end but things get worked out and Cash and Olivia get their HEA.
This was a good story. I liked the characters and the story was good. Overall, the story was interesting and kept me engaged, wondering what would happen next. Since I thought this was a cliffhanger I already purchased the next book and I’ll be starting that next.
