I honestly do not mind lack of sex. Amount of sex scenes is not an indicator of a good book. My problem is that it reads like a digest with not only details, but some important parts missing. I am not even sure which tags to use. Is it contemporary (it can be)? Historical? Fantasy? Angst?Hurt/comfort? Menage? (but then again, there is no actual sex to add that tag) Still, the set up was intriguing. I wish the story was (much) longer.
3.5 stars.

Being me, I am terribly disappointed that there is no actual sex in this book! The warnings were completely unnecessary.
That can't even be counted as a short story, but only a sketch.

In some historical/alternative universe setting two brothers play games. Not only sexual kind. There is some intrigue, but it's vague. Pops up out of nowhere and leads to nothing.

Sex happens off the page, so the warnings about menage and twincest are laughable.

The whole story just lacks substance.

Despite the warnings, this book contained no erotica and turned out to be more a short story about espionage. The role of the twin spies was vaguely outlined, but a lot was left to the reader to fill in the blank. Not a bad story, but if the story was going to be more plot focused than sex-centric, then the plot should have been more developed.

This is a story about nothing.

Shelves: reviewed, meh
I'd actually read this one yesterday, so I suppose this one was the beginning of the menage run. (I've noticed that when there's some salient feature of a book, I tend to see it again and again for the next couple of books [at least three]. Once it was facial burn scars. Another time was dead lovers. I suppose this time it's menages. I have absolutely no idea why it happens - I generally pick books out of my unread ebooks folder more or less at random - but it does.)

It wasn't bad. Short. Brief.
Hm... The warning indicated a threesome and, yeah, I could sorta maybe imagine that based on the kissing and INFER that such did in fact happen. But the warning for this short also indicated incest and there was absolutely nothing like that at all...not even a chaste kiss between the brothers... unless you count some mild innuendo as such.

Okay, so... free is free, you get what you pay for and all that, but... come on. What was the point?! Don't try to build up if there's no pay off!
Dec 23, 2013 Harry rated it did not like it
The premise seemed promising, complex - two brothers seduce a man at a masquerade. But the most interesting part of that - that it's brothers interacting - is completely ignored in the story. Instead, it becomes some international espionage story that is so lacking in concrete details I have the sense the writer didn't even know what the story was. Characters are "operatives" from "my country." Vague time period, vague geography, vague political intrigue - there's so much vagueness that we're no ...more

Rating: A bit less than three

It was lovely, and I actually liked the set-up. A lot. I really want a longer novel out of this. But in the end? The thing that mattered most to me, I think, was that I actually wasn't convinced that they would be happy. Let alone have a HEA.

I would have liked a bit more romance. There was a feeling of attraction between all three characters but nothing that shouted everlasting love or long lasting relationship. The lack of sex didn't really bother me, the story itself had a good starting basis for a longer story.

This story caught me right away. There was tension and drama and it played up the plot development quite well. I just wish there had been more to it. It would have been great to follow it through with them.

This is short and free. I've read a book by the author which I liked. And the negative reviews make me want to read this :D

Very good, but more of a fragment of a novel than a story.
