ARC Review: The Hush-Hush Crush by Liberty Lace

When A Twin Peeks: A Taboo M/M Twins RomanceBlurb:
Scott Tate has a problem. When his twin brother Sawyer calls and asks to crash at Scott’s place for a few days, Scott has no idea that the feelings he has for his brother would surface so quickly. But a forbidden desire this strong cannot be controlled.

Now, after spending most of his life pushing Sawyer away for fear of showing his true feelings, Scott is faced with the toughest decision of his life—either admit to his twin that he’s in love with him… or ask Sawyer to leave for good.

When the world tells you that the love you feel is wrong… can two men find the courage to make it right?

Todd’s rating:

For this short 42-page read to be about twincest, for the most part, the book didn't keep me overly engaged.

Sure, was some sexy talk and innuendo from the visiting twin to his shy NYC twin.

There were even a few hot fantasy and voyeuristic scenes, which were verrrrra, verrrrra nice.

Then there was also the closing scene where they actually get together that was pretty smoking, too.

But the story seemed to ramble a bit, in my opinion, with several of Scott's NYC apartment building neighbors popping in and out.

I would have preferred if the book had more pages devoted to exploring the twins' past and current relationship on-page than to hear one more story about retired handymen, widows who love to cook and a flirty mother of two.

One thing that I thought was odd was some of the phrases, which didn't sound as if they were spoken by metropolitan young men from San Francisco and New York City.
“Mrs. Everley? She’s a sweet old thing,” Scott said.
To me, that phrase came straight out of a older Southern woman's mouth versus that of a young (hot) Bay Area born and raised professional and transplant to NYC. (I lived in the Bay Area for 12 years, so ummm, no.)

Plus, there was a plot point about Sawyer, the SF twin being a firefighter, then after the story had seemed to wrap, there was a fire in the building. This felt tacked on and unnecessary, actually detracting from the story, so the firefighting part was a bit of a fail for me.

The story was just okay, as I've read several more interesting stories of the same length, so I'd rate this one around 2.5 *more-twinny-goodness-less-other-stuff* stars.
