After nothing but bad luck, Melanie's ready to give up on love. She puts herself in her friends' hands and goes with them to a shibari class at Venture. Seems her luck changes when she meets Kirby and his fraternal twin brother, Davis.
Kirby and Davis are immediately smitten. While fully independent, Davis falls on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum. Even better, Kirby realizes Melanie seems to understand Davis in a way few people ever have. Davis knows he's not the easiest person to live with, but Melanie soothes his mind in a way like no one else. He's willing to do anything to make this work.
As the three of them settle into their dynamic, Melanie can't believe she's got not one, but two sexy Doms of her dreams. But when a jealous ex and a deeply buried family secret both explode at the same time, will it jeopardize the happiness that finally seems within their grasp?

Twins are double the trouble and double the fun. This book started out slow with a recap of every bad relationship Melanie's lived through. She comes across not exactly pathetic, more a pushover to be taken advantage of. She doesn't inspire any confidence in her ability to choose a good guy to date. Luckily for the reader, we do not suffer through her repeated bad mistakes. Instead, she lets her kinky friends help her find a guy. Instead of one, she finds two!
Why did I like this story? I liked how Ms. Dalton showcased two brothers who are totally different from each other. Kirby and Davis know how to work and live together despite marching to different drum beats. Kirby is a sweetheart who tries to be as patient as possible with his brother. The character who stole the show is definitely Davis. He won my heart. Davis is a high-functioning autistic guy. What I liked is how we get to see things from Davis's point of view. I cannot say for sure if this is how an autistic person is like in real life. It certain does follow the stereotypes I am aware of. Perhaps he is a bit romanticized. What I find interesting is how much sense Davis makes and I prefer his communication style better. I liked how clear he was and did not play any games. How he handles difficult situations is pretty fabulous. I loved how he works and how he resolved the conflicts he ran into at work. Honestly, I wish more people were this way. It would make life easier for me. How Davis relates to Melanie is also sweet. He woos her in thoughtful ways. Kirby is not to be outdone and he also courts Melanie in ways she's never experienced.
What really made this story is Davis's intentional humour. He doesn't mean to be funny and yet his perspective is amusing. When he does use humour, it's dry and darn funny. If a man can make me laugh in a good way, he's a winner. The two different relationships Melanie has with each brother works out well. The chemistry is lovely. Whilst there is some kinky fun in the story, it is almost more an afterthought. Because the main focus is Davis and how everyone relates to him. When certain pieces of information comes to light about his parents' past, it is heartbreaking. It explains so much and from an outsider perspective, so easy to have noticed. The situation with Kirby and Davis's parents brings to mind a saying, "each generation thinks they invented sex". At the end of this story, it is clear Melanie won the jackpot in lovers after a string of loser. Whilst Kirby and Davis may feel they are lucky to have found a woman together, I believe Melanie is the lucky one.
This kinky romance is recommended for ménage lovers who enjoy a tale filled with laughter and a few tears.
