Matthew Langford is told on his twenty-first birthday that he has a twin. After the initial shock, he quickly realizes this is why he always felt part of him was missing. His search takes him 200 miles to Devon, UK, where he meets fraternal twin, Tremaine Wheal.

The pair discover many things in common, and quickly become as close as if they’d never been separated. But when they share a moment in a nightclub, each realizes there is more between them than having shared a womb. Panic sets in and they part. Once again their separation brings loneliness and pain.

Eventually, unable to stay away from each other, they tentatively move forward together as lovers. But secrets don’t stay secret for long, and discovery and questions threaten their happiness.

This is a taboo story featuring twins.

Mattie discovers that he has a twin on his 21st birthday and that one of the conditions for his adoption was that his parents couldn't tell him about it until then. He's always felt that something was missing out on his life, even if his adoptive parents have been great with him and supported him as much as they could. He rushes out of his house and his search ends at a town 4 hours away from his home. A stroke of luck leads him to his fraternal twin, Tremaine (Tam). 

They don't look much alike, other than their eyes and perhaps their nose, but they have lots in common, despite their very different upbringing. 

After a night clubbing, Tam admits to himself he is attracted to Matt and rather than face rejection, he decides to put some distance between the two of them. Not that it makes it any better after so many years apart. When Matt goes to look for him, they give in to their attraction, but if their love has any chance to survive, they will have to keep this a secret from the ones that know who they are to one another.

I really loved Tam, he was my favorite of the two, the one who'd had the hardest life of them both and the one who grew more attached sooner. I loved Matt, too, but there was something about Tam that made me want to hug him and make it all better. They were adorable together, hesitant and eager to connect after being apart for so long. It's not difficult to understand why things like this could happen when siblings are separated at an early age and then come back together.

This was a gripping, emotional and sweet taboo story, with very lovable characters and from what I've read previously of the theme, fairly realistic in both plot and progression. I think Louise Lyons did a fantastic job with it! Very recommendable, even if I'm aware this is not a book for everyone.

Author Bio

Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy.

Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered FanFiction in her late twenties. Posting stories based on some of her favourite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing "hobby" more seriously.

Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad dog called Casper, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long-distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races home afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.

Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and job, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.
