Publisher's Summary

For years, Rex Mirza has been controlling every aspect of his twin brother’s life. Using the fact that Tavi is a magicless witch - a mere human - in a family of powerful witches, he has justified every harsh treatment. All of it is only for Tavi’s own good, of course. How could a human possibly know what was best for him?

When Tavi gets the chance to turn the tables on his brother, will he take it? Or will he take the punishment Rex says is due for trying to run away?

This is a dark taboo tale that contains several kinks that may offend or trigger some listeners, including (but not limited to) age play, ABDL, and humiliation. Not every dynamic or element is 100 percent consensual.

Want...

Ok… So, I personally found this book fascinating.
But it definitely won’t be for all people. Or even the majority of people, it will push some to the edge or further from their comfort zones. But I do think that even if your not sure about this one, you should still give this book a chance. It might just open your eyes a little and you might, maybe just find you like it. It’s a deliciously dark, sinfully dirty, hot taboo and kink infused story. There are just so many dimensions to what we get described and outlined to us in this book. With the dystopian theme of a world where witches, vampires and werewolf’s rule over the humans. We get Twins that are so very similar in most ways but are still completely different in their thoughts feelings and actions. And we get some taboo/kinky ABDL and captive type scenes between the two men that are really well written as well.

Tavi has been a captive human slave to his witch brother Rex for years since he learned that he was not given the gift of magic. When Tavi is able to overthrow Rex and make him the prisoner instead the book takes a turn for the interesting. We get some ABDL themed scenes and some slight twincest which I am assuming we will see a lot more of in the next few books. But Tavi is determined to make Rex his, no matter how hard it is to keep from feeling guilty about his feelings and from keeping the truth of what he is doing hidden from the outside world..

I love how the author gives us just the perfect amount of information, not giving away the whole story and too many details while at the same time leading us into the next book (since this will be a Trilogy = 3 books). This was a fantastic start to this trilogy and I really look forward to seeing where this leads us in the next book.

Audio – I really liked the narration for this one. Kenneth always seems to know how to give us the perfect tones for each of the characters (even twins) & their personalities, blending them well with whatever scenes and events that are happening in the storyline at the time. Flawless performance for this book, well done..

I was intrigued by the story and cannot wait to get the second one when it comes out. The narrator captured the essence of the story just right.

I loved the audio version even more than the eBook

Want is an amazing story. I read the eBook when it was first released and didn't think I will discover any new aspects of this story in an audio format. But for me listening to the audio was even better then reading an eBook, the narration by Kenneth Obi is great and brought new dimension to Rex and Tavi. I loved this book and highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys well written dark romance stories with witches, magic, great world building and character development.

Spectacular story, Kenneth Obi is at his best!

Want, the first book in R. Phoenix’s The Need Trilogy, lays down the foundation of the story of the Mirza twins. One born with magic and the other only human. With all the complex layers in this relationship, as well as the aspects of their personalities which are beginning to emerge, there’s a fascinating dynamic developing between the brothers.

Being a human man, Tavi has spent his life effectively enslaved by his brother Rex. When the opportunity arises to trade places, Tavi takes advantage and makes it happen. While maintaining the charade turns out to be another huge hurdle, Tavi is willing to explore every avenue to keep it going.

As the story unfolds, we get a fair idea of the treatment Tavi has endured under his brother’s care. While there’s no doubt Tavi consented to some of the things Rex did to him, the continual degradation and lack of control have had a lasting effect on his psyche. After years of having no power, becoming the caregiver and reducing Rex to total dependence just fuels Tavi’s craving to be the one in charge. And he likes it!

Looking through Tavi’s eyes, it’s impossible not to revel in Rex getting a taste of his own medicine. (I have to admit, watching Rex come out of his initial stupor and wrap his head around what’s happening to him is particularly delectable.)

R. Phoenix doesn’t pull any punches when exploring what each twin is going through. Exchanging roles impacts the foundation of every aspect of their relationship, and raises a host of emotions. They also have to come to grips with their sexual desires and all the sensations they’re experiencing.

Want is the perfect story to enjoy as an audiobook. There are so many nuances of this intriguing plot which are enhanced by Kenneth Obi’s wonderful narration. He infuses these unique characters with distinct personalities and brings them to life. Mr. Obi makes the most of the emotions in each twin’s voice as they process each development and discover aspects of their personalities they’d never have imagined. This is the kind of story which really lets Obi show his skill.

I’m looking forward to the upcoming release of the audiobook edition of Take, the next volume in this trilogy. I can only guess at the long term repercussions of the twins changing places, not to mention how their dark, taboo relationship progresses.

Just listen to Daddy

It’s a bit difficult to review the whole context of the story since this is the very first book of a trilogy. However, I’m in love with this wickedly deprived and super kinky morsel. 😍 You gotta give it up to R. Phoenix for never hesitating to venture l out to these adventurous grey areas because we need more of these taboo treats in our life! 😉


The story started quite simple. Rex is the older twin and a powerful witch while his younger twin Tevi is a mere human who’s a bit more than just a pet of him. When the tables got turned and Rex found himself being unable to use his magic as he used to, Tevi got his sweet sweet revenge by reducing Rex to a mere baby who’s dependent on him all the time. But this secret is too big and if the words got out, one of these two will surely perish. Despite their animosity and resentment to each other, deep down, these twins love each other deeply and truly. So they have to figure out a way to continue to play this charade if they want a happy life together.


First of all, if you are only reading books for this trilogy, congrats, all books are already out. 😁 But since I listened to the audio of this book, I’m going to wait for the remaining books to come out in audio. *whispers* I heard it’s soon. 😉 Kenneth Obi did such a great job narrating this story and his voices for some supporting characters are truly eerie and haunting. Also loved the voice distinction between those twins. And the age play and daddy play? Holy crap! 😱 This is one very seriously F up and kinky book and I loved every second of it. Baby play to the T! 😁 We got the full version! 🥰 And I’m hungry for more. 😋 I can’t wait to consume the second book in the series because I need more of this delicious wickedness in my life. 😉

Great Narration

Kenneth Obi does a great job of bring Tavi and Rex to life. I really enjoyed this audio & was kept fully engaged the whole was through.
Rex and Tavi are identical twins, except Rex has magic, Tavi does not. This puts Tavi at a distinct disadvantage as the magicless ones are nothing more than slaves.
Suddenly Tavi takes advantage of a situation and there is a twist in roles.

Tavi continues to weaves a tangled web of deception and both brothers are learning to adjust to their new lives. Their dynamic has shifted and they are doing their best in their circumstances. I do fear there could be disastrous consequences of Tavi for creating this new reality.
Rex struggles with his new role, afraid if becoming comfortable in something he believes is not suited for.

I genuinely enjoyed this story. It was really well written & believable in a crazy kind of way. I connected with both of these characters. I'm not really sure whose side I'm on...
I certainly look forward to the continuing story of Rex & Tavi in future books.

Wow the narration really made this book great

Really enjoyable story. Made brilliant by the talent of Kenneth Obi. Did not read the book prior to listening to the audio.

I have listened to a number of audios narrated by Kenneth Obi and I think this might be his best for the use of voices and the sound effects. He made me literally jump at one point and his voice for Desi was brilliant.

This is a dark taboo book, with non con ABDL. I have only ever read sweet ABDL and wasn’t sure if I would like non con, but surprisingly I did.

Tavi is a human born into a family of witches and is “cared” for by his witch brother Rex, however Tavi takes his revenge on Rex and there the story starts.

Can not wait till the next book in the series comes out on audio. Of to read the book as I want to know what happens next.
