Book Review: Our Gentle Sin by Lyra Evans

Our Gentle Sin
A Taboo M/M Romance

Kane may be older than Levi—by six minutes—but he’s always found comfort in knowing Levi would be the one to take charge. That's how it's always been. But all it takes is one winding road and a sudden storm for their world to shift in an instant. As Levi struggles to cope, Kane has no choice but to become the strong one.

But where Kane wants things to go back to normal, Levi seems determined to change as much as possible. He starts acting differently, more recklessly, and Kane isn’t sure what to do. What can he do, after all? He can’t stop Levi from flirting with every guy that breathes, or from going to every party on campus. But when Levi begs Kane to join him at a Halloween party, Kane finds himself in a predicament he never imagined. He’s given in to a passion he didn’t know he had, and worse—he doesn’t regret it.

Faced with the reality of his growing desires, Kane starts to pull away from Levi. But no matter what he does, Kane can’t fight his yearning, and Levi isn’t making it any easier. Though Kane keeps asking himself, "what’s wrong with me?" maybe Kane should be asking what’s wrong with Levi... And will it tear them apart for good?

Our Gentle Sin is a contemporary m/m romance of a taboo nature that some readers might find objectionable. It contains explicit sexual content between two consenting adults, violence, coarse language, and the use of sexual slurs. It is not appropriate for readers under 18 years of age.

Jewel's rating:

Our Gentle Sin is the story about two young men learning to live again after their parents are killed in a car accident. It isn't going to be for everyone. If twincest isn't your thing, then you're not going to want to read this book.

Levi and Kane De Luca are identical twins and are both college students. Levi is majoring in pre-law, while Kane has gone a more artistic route with photography. To supplement their income, the boys have an Instagram where they both model underwear, mostly. And their photos are often sensual.

Our Gentle Sin isn't PWP. There are two sex scenes in the entire book, though Kane does a fair amount of fantasizing and there is loads of sexual tension between them. In fact, I kind of wanted more sex (I'm pervy that way).

The story is very much character driven and it is told from Kane's POV. He often used his photography to tell a story, and I like how it was used in the book. We don't know Levi quite as well, and though he is usually the strong and steadfast twin, he spirals a bit after the death of their parents. We sometimes get glimpses of what ​could be attraction on Levi's part,​ either with his actions of things he says,​ but​ until the end, we​ mostly only see Kane.​ I would have loved to have had both POVs just to get inside Levi's head.​

All in all, I enjoyed Our Gentle Sin.

Happy reading!
