On his birthday, Aiden has only one thing on his mind. Spending time with the only man he will ever love. The one man he can't have.

A decade has passed since Aiden last set eyes, or hands, on Kai. Yet when Aiden tracks him down in order to keep a promise to spend their thirty-second birthday together, it's as if only a breath of time has swept by since they were last together. The attraction they share is as intense as ever despite their years of separation, and despite Aiden's decade-long marriage to a woman.

When Aiden learns that Kai's current relationship has broken down, he's compelled to invite Kai back to his hotel room for the night. Aiden believes if they both try hard enough, they might become true brothers again and banish the rogue feelings that originally tore them apart.

Only, Kai doesn't agree. It's his birthday too, and he's got plans of his own. Plans that involve shunning a twin room in favour of a double. And Aiden has never been able to resist his desires, no matter how skewed those desires might be.

Reader Advisory: This is a taboo story which contains a twincest storyline as well as scenes of dubious consent.

With such taboo themes I was expecting...more.

Aidan goes to find his brother on his birthday. It had been years since they'd seen each other and his brother, Kai, is the one person he loves most in the world.

When I pick up a twincest or brothercest book, I want some super smutty goodness. I want some amazing sexual tension where I am going crazy for something really naughty to finally happen. I didn't really get any of that. There was naughtiness, just minus the tension.

There wasn't much chemistry between Aidan and Kai. There was a lot of talk about their past chemistry but I never felt it. Some more showing of their feelings instead of telling would have been nice. It would have improved the story and, despite the unexpected ending, would have made it more enjoyable.

CHASING THE DRAGON is labeled as a 'Sexy Snax' on the cover and that's really what it was, just a bite. With more length and more showing, it could have been a whole heck of a lot sexier.

There are few things in life that bind two people together more completely than the bond that is shared between brothers. As twins, Aiden and Kai are doubly bound, but what are brothers supposed to do when the relationship that ties them together is also holding them apart?

Aiden made a promise to his brother ten years ago that he intends to keep. Despite their estrangement and the disapproval of the woman he loves, Aiden is determined to mend his relationship with his brother. Their thirty-second birthday is the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start and live their lives the way they should have from the beginning.

Kai has changed; the years he spent separated from Aiden almost destroyed him. Aiden is distraught to discover that the man standing before him is just as reckless as the one he remembers from their youth.

The brothers don't really know each other any more. Trapped between the shared memories of their past and the separate experiences of the decade they spent apart, Aiden and Kai will quickly discover that few things are ever as they appear.

CHASING THE DRAGON is a novella length story that captures a brief moment of time in the lives of two brothers. With a delicate balance of physical passion and deep emotionalism, Ash Penn shows readers just enough of the past to bring the present to life. While tackling the subject of twincest, CHASING THE DRAGON is more than an erotically written taboo storyline. With unexpected twists and turns, I found this book to be well-paced and was kept guessing up until the very end.

I would recommend CHASING THE DRAGON to readers who are looking for a complex storyline with emotional depth that challenges the socially acceptable standards of love as we know it.
