    Conceptually, I was onboard 100%. Grieving widower and his wife's twin brother, identical twin brother--wait for it...there, you got it. There's an explanation there, but totally not weird at all, in fact it was so wild that I checked and sure as the world is filled with amazing things you can have identical twins of different genders from a single embryo transfer. Case study for interested partiesThis is so cool! My brain exploded a little bit. And frankly, it was the best part of the yaoi-style story. This was just a slow transition relationship, which I don't mind, but it felt really glossed over and I was like "meh". Also, I think I was disappointed when my book ended at just over 50% because psychologically I was expecting and looking forward to more and then felt cheated. Cut to the chase, it didn't allow this pretty little bud of a story to bloom. My rating for the story is 2 stars, but the concept and super cool single embryo transfer and dizygotic twins pushed it back up passed 2.5 stars so I am being really, really generous with a 3 star rating.

    Okay I officially am just not a fan of this author. Given her 3 chances and this one was just...bad. A man's wife dies and he takes in her twin gay brother to combat both their grief. But he treats the brother like his housewife-slave and even calls him a "woman" on any accounts! He seemed so sexist, wanting someone at home to cook and clean for him, what a lazy sexist pig! The gay brother is no better, he plays the typical housewife roll and is even alright with being slapped by the other man! He forgives him instantly! Such unhealthy relationships, violence should not be condoned all because they are both men!Along with more bad editing, many missing words in sentences, and once again so many pronouns that I can't figure out who's doing what, left me confused and annoyed.

    I liked this short story. It's very short though. Only 90 pages long. It's about a cop who recently lost his wife ended up having to take in his wife's identical twin brother. The story is quite pleasant and the emotional building was fantastic. I just wish the love making in the end was a bit more detailed and could get an epilogue. I'm an epilogue gal and I always appreciate a peak in the future of MCs. Despite that, really a nice story.3.5 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

    No. Just no.This reads like some rushed fan fic. The whole story is fairly preposterous but that wasn't what bothered me but rather the fact of barely on the page characters: Abel is a perfect 50's housewife and Heath is caveman a**hole who resorts to belittling name calling and violence when jealous, but of course it's all in the name of love. The deceased' twin brother and her grieving husband are in love and a couple and I don't think she's been gone even a year and to add insult to injury the sex sucks as in it's covered in about one page but then again if olive oil is all they could come up with I barely care. Also this is much shorter than advertised (THANKFULLY) as the last 50% is previews for other books and assorted nonsense. Ugh!!!

    I will add a warning here - if you are triggered by domestic abuse or the use of slurs, then you'll probably want to give this a pass. But if that is not a problem for you, then definitely check this out.(view spoiler)[Tough cop Heath Prescott is pretty much lost after his wife Abbie dies, with her having been the love of his life, and the person who kept his domestic life completely in order. Abbie's twin brother, Abel, is lost, as well, with Abbie having been his only family, and finding himself at the tail end of an abusive relationship.When Heath is called in to help deal with the abusive boyfriend that Abel is trying to escape, they are both slowly drawn into a situation where they end up living together, and then, slowly, falling in love with each other.There's some hurt/comfort, in the form of grieving for the deceased Abbie, and in Heath messing things up, then going after Abel to make it right.There were a few things that bothered me - Some of the ideas and language expressed by Heath are rather jarring, because he's got a macho straight cop thing going on, and so you have to take it with a grain of salt that he's unused to gay men, and is fumbling around with trying to figure out how to handle the fact that he is falling in love with one. There's also a scene where Heath gets drunk that is somewhat disturbing.The ending is very sweet, and sexy, and worth waiting for. (I do hope that Abel takes him shopping for lube in the future, though I suppose, if you're winging it, olive oil's better than other things you could use...) (hide spoiler)]

    Self centered GFY Heath treated chick-with-a-dick Abel horribly. Pacing was off - t00 slow and then rushed at the end.

    This book was awful. Truly awful, and I don't use those words lightly. Maybe the worst MM I've ever read. Heath is an unapologetic misogynist who only seems to miss his wife because she cooked and cleaned for him. Without her, he's unable to clean his shower, cook for himself, or pick up any garbage.The book progresses quickly and we meet Abbie's twin, Abel. He's described as weak and thin and looks just like his sister, hair and all. Hank eventually moves the abused Abel in with him and he's thrilled that Abel likes to "be domestic," and cook and clean his apartment for him. Yay! He can live again! He remarks that Abel makes "the perfect housewife."He even tells his coworker that it's just too bad Abel isn't a woman...cuz you know, women are interchangeable, right? It's even good that he looks like your wife and has a name like your wife, so you won't have to remember anything new. He even wonders why Abbie couldn't have had a twin sister? You know, so he could just go get with her?Abel doesn't seem to really miss his sister. At all. Or have any qualms about taking up with her husband less than a year after her death. He even pretends to be her to an elderly neighbor. They never talk about her, never cry about her, and he even tells Heath it's okay, I know that you're more upset than me. Really? Even though your twin died?? Aren't YOU more upset than him? You're the one who lost a twin. He can (and does) replace his wife; you can never replace your sister.When Abel has a discussion with him about his feelings--or tries to--Heath grabs his arm. "Don't start acting like a woman. You're not a woman. I can't read your fucking mind." Isn't he lovely??When he gets upset with Abel, he gets up in his face-- someone he has acknowledged is physically helpless and built like a woman (and someone who has been abused in the past) and calls him a f*****. Abel is out on a date, but Heath says to himself that gays don't date. They don't do dinner and a movie--gays only go to clubs and perform sex acts on one another. Offensive, much??He tears up his own house because Abel has the nerve to be out on a date, and then tells Abel now he can busy himself cleaning it all up. Then, as if he hasn't been enough of a wildebeest, he strikes Abel to the floor.Abel leaves and Heath tries to track him down. He reads on his blog that Abel is "alone again and without a place to live." Hearing that the man he loves is homeless and alone, what does Heath do? He closed his eyes with "exquisite relief" because Abel hadn't found someone else. Like I said. A real sweetheart.Abel takes Hank back immediately like the pathetic dog he is...actually, that's an insult to dogs. Barely two words are exchanged before he sighs. "Oh, thank God this nightmare is over." We are left with the feeling that Heath only wants Abel because he cooks and cleans for him, and looks just like his dead wife.I don't think there are enough words to describe how much I hated this book and both of the main characters. One star is too much.

    Bitter sweet taleThis is a yaoi story meaning male and male love. They are as good as conventional romances but only if you have an open mind.Heath has just lost his wife to cancer and he is a wreck. A policeman by day, his home reflected the mess he was in. His colleagues were worried but he only wanted to work.A call from a colleague confuses his world further when he is faced with a nearly identical image of his wife, who was her twin brother. Feeling too much pain he decides to leave his contact details and go.He is relayed another message at 4 in the morning that Abel, his wife's brother and only existing family was in hospital following an attack. Abel's ex wanted him back wrecking his home and hurting Abel. Heath had had enough. He took Abel home.Memories of his wife made things hard but they found talking together helped both deal. They both knew where they stood until an incident turns their world around. It looks at two different worlds but finding common ground.The story is a sweet love story. Not everything runs smoothly but that is life, real or not. The ending is wonderful. The story may be short but there is a lot happening. The only drawback was that it ended too soon, I wished for more from Heath and Abel.This writer manages to enhance her characters so that you feel for them. She draws you in and gives you so much in just one small tale. She has definitely become an author I wish to read more from.

    WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT??! I wasn't expecting a really good story here. It was 100% a thirst read, but yet, even with these low standards, I was still massively disappointed, and worse, offended. The way Heath reacts when Abel does something he is less than happy with was beyond inappropriate. He throws shit around, calls him a [email protected], and even hits him. The power dynamics are so messed up. Without Heath, Abel is essentially homeless, and Heath likes it that way. I wish I scrub my brain so that I could forget this shit.

    I love the emotions in this book. Really hit all the levels. I love that each of the books I've read so far are so different unless they are part of a series. Then they still have a different curve to them. Definitely try all of her work.

    Kindle Freebie Short Story. MM. Grief. 3 Star. Her Twin Brother was a quick yet developed short story, with emotions and heat. Even with so few pages, it still felt as if I'd read an entire story, and I applaud the author for this because I can't write a short to save my life. However, I had a few issues with the story that I'll briefly hit upon, only because it might insult members of the LGBTQ community unintentionally- I don't want them to read it and get angry without a warning. Health treats his brother-in-law like a woman with a male appendage. Not only that, he's a highly misogynistic police officer who glosses over domestic abuse. (Abuse is different as long as you do it out of being drunk and jealous vs angry. THAT angered me). While Abel enjoys domestic aspects of life, he tries several times to get it across that he is a man. I realize this is part of the story, written as traits by the characters, but this will rub those wrong for obvious reasons. Editing: Yes, this is a free body of work, one I did enjoy for the most part. But there were a ton of habitual editing errors that were bad habits the author had picked up, or had never learned properly, which need to be put into practice. Writers shouldn't lean so heavily on their editors, as things do slip through the cracks- it's best to learn the rules and put them into practice until it becomes second nature. I wouldn't have even mentioned this except for the fact that 40% of the book was advertisements for 100+ titles by the same author, and those habits shouldn't be happening with a seasoned writer. I was able to overlook the editing, simply because I truly did enjoy the story, and I'm thankful for the free read. This is the second title I've read by this author, UnPrisoned being the other one, and will look forward to reading more in the future.

    I've read most, if not all, of the reviews and I agree with so many parts. I didn't like way the officer character acted, I damn sure didn't like him hitting Abel and I don't condone anyone staying with a partner who abuses them (one hit, one cheat...it's all the same and leads to more).I loved Abel. I would love someone like that and I don't mean it to sound sexist like some were saying. I think he just liked being a domestic homebody and the cleaning/cooking was what he enjoyed doing. I can dig that. I would never expect that from a mate, and I would also contribute and help out, but if they liked doing it why would I stop them?I also agree with some that the ending seemed rushed and the sex scene could have been not only longer and more romantic/erotic but a little more descriptive.I gave 3 stars for the overall story but the writing of Abel was a 5 star for me. I loved that character. I wanted to throat punch the cop for his derogatory names and his violence because of his drinking and closed-mindedness.The sister/wife part was different because it did feel like the dick didn't love Abel, but was only projecting his wife onto him.Great beginning, decent middle that got squirrely, and rushed ending.That being said, I would love to read more about Abel. Awesome, beautiful character.

    I don't rate books any more in genres I write because conflict of interest. But I still make a few notes of my thoughts from time to time for my own use. Basically this is a fast free read that includes a catalogue of books at the end with the stories behind the writing by a yaio writer with a very large catalogue indeed. Says the author:"Almost every story I write is a variation of beauty and the beast." So an interesting inside look.

    This story was a joy to read. It was heart-warming to read and the emotion was written out very well. Each character is depicted with their own strengths and weaknesses, which makes the emotion they experience that much more believable. I actually felt like I was experiencing the characters' emotions. Once again, Ms. Abraham has turned out a beautiful story. My only complaint is that it's too short!

    The writing on this book was fine; it is just the subject matter that threw me(the dead wife and the look-a-like twin brother). I don't think I would have been as bothered if the author did not mention how alike the twins were in appearance--it made me wonder if the MC was just accepting the brother because he looked so much like the dead wife. I did not dislike the book but neither did I like it enough to want to read it again.

    Interesting short story about a man who loses his wife and almost himself until he needs to step in to help his wife's twin brother. When they start living together, things shift a bit, but Heath can't get his head around being with a man. Abel is so very much like Abbie, but he's a guy so there's that. Confusion and missteps abound. The best lesson of this story is that labels are for canned goods, not for people.

    A light and fast read. I would have enjoyed it more if the main character, Heath, hadn't fallen in love with his late wife's twin brother, Abel, just because Abel looked, talked, cooked and cleaned just like his late wife Abbie. So he just fell in love with his wife all over again. It bothered me. I wanted Heath to embrace the maleness of Abel, not relive his life with Abbie.
