The concept of a mirror showing us from a side we never get to see ourselves is fascinating. Having a mirror-image of yourself, an identical twin, gives some people a unique perspective on life. This story of Aaron and Troy takes it one step further: having them separated at age two and living very different lives, then examining what happens when they meet up again twenty-five years later makes for a totally fascinating story. Told with a large dose of humor that is balanced by some seriously e...more

I loved the concept! Sadly, most parts didn't work for me. More later. My flight is boarding!

Trip over and days later...finally finishing this review.

The idea of a good twin/bad twin trading places has always been a guilty pleasure concept for me, mostly because I'm a twin myself so I get a kick out of them when I come across the ones I do.

I really enjoyed the good twin, Aaron. He's such a good guy but he is definitely in a bad situation that he can't dig himself out of it. I loved reading abou...more

This makes me think of that one CW tv show, Ringer.

It wasn't bad. It was certainly readable. It was just...odd. Incongruous. I had a hard time believing that people wouldn't really notice the change. I was also annoyed that some of the secondary and tertiary characters seemed rather like stereotypical character sketches.

It didn't really start making any sense until Dave said something about how Troy had done that thing before, where he pretended to change, but by that time, it had felt more like...more

I have only one word for Mirrors by AJ Llewellyn and DJ Manly and that is......WOW!! This is an absolutely outstanding story that the blurb just barely covers the very basics on. There is so, so much more to this book that, only by reading it yourself can you truly appreciate just how great the story actually is.

This is an utterly fascinating character driven story that has a complex plot that ha...more

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe said: “Behavior is a mirror in which everyone displays his own image.” In 'Mirrors' by A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly, Aaron Mayer gets to see his reflection on both sides of the mirror. He's always lamented having to stay with his mother after his parents were divorced, while his identical twin, Troy, went with his father. He'd assumed that Troy got the best end of the deal. When Aaron is presented with the opportunity to step into his brother's shoes, he jumps at it,...more

The "read ebook" thing really fooled me. I totally thought I could read the whole thing. Then it stops when I start getting really really really really into it.

OH MY FUCKING GOD THESE ASSHOLES. WHY GIVE ME A FUCKING PREVIEW. OMFG. I AM DYING TO GET THIS.

DO YOU SEE THAT SHELF?? I ADDED IT JUST FOR THIS BOOK. BLOODY HELL :(

So, I finally got this book.

Mirrors had so much potential to be more than it actually was (though the beginning was pretty fucking grabbing). I'm not exactly disappointe...more

Romance and thriller.
I liked the beginning, but by the middle I wanted to give up. I don't know why I kept reading a little bit more and suddenly it became freaking good! The ending was really unexpected, I LOVED being surprised.

How many times have I said to my SO "Who are you?". I could never, ever imagine he could be someone else,a long lost twin impersonating the real one. I would just think: "He changed! What happened?". In this book, Aaron fools everybody into thinking he is his brother, T...more

I loved this book. It was great from the beginning to the end. You know that saying? Be careful what you wish for. Aaron went through a lot of things but you have to read it to find out what. It had mystery and intrigue and hot lovin;-). This book had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Great book...

Aaron thinks its providence when his brother phones him and offers to help him out of the trouble his mother landed him in, but when he turns up for the meeting, things are much different from he thought they would be. With the opportunity to experience the life he could have had, Aaron embarks on an adventure that will take him to the highs of joy and the depths of despair.

This is a story that will grab yo...more

So this one gets 3 hearts from me for having a lot of potential. Upon first diving into this story I was excited to find out what goes on in this book because it seemed like a mostly contemporary story that would have this great twist somewhere along the way. However, I found there was something missing. I mean I did like the characters and I did like the twist to the book and the plot line was one that held a lot of potential. But as I read I felt more compelled by what's " missing " in this no...more

3.5 stars

Aaron is mysteriously offered a chance at a better life by his twin brother, Troy, after a phone call out of the blue. Aaron is in debt to loan sharks when Troy rings him and takes the opportunity to see what his twin is offering. The backstory is that the parents split the boys up at divorce, Troy went with his father, Aaron stayed with his mother. Both boys had dysfunctional upbringings, one wealthy, Troy, one poor, Aaron. Both men are impacted by drama - Aaron owes money, Troy takes...more

This was an extraordinary good read because it had a little something of everything in it. It had family tragedy, mistaken identity, forbidden romance, intrigue, street violence and second chance romance all rolled into one.

It grabbed my attention from the beginning with the way things jumped right into the story with a brief table-setter scene that looks over a year into the future before starting at the beginning. The story swirls around identical twin brothers who were separated when their p...more

This story is very different. It starts with Aaron in a hard place. His lost twin calls up and he ends up taking over Troy's life. But he finds out that the grass isn't greener on the other side. But there is Dave and maybe he is gay BUT his brother was a real sh** and now he has to figure out how to get out of this mess and keep his guy.

I floated between 2 and 3 stars for this so consider it rated 2.5. It started out really strong and I like the authors writing style but as the story developed it just became to messy and convoluted and I just got bored rather then intrigued by all the twists and turns.
Chela
I loved everything about this book! My only complaint is that I wish Dave met Aaron first!! Besides that, all of the characters were well rounded, the plot fascinating enough to draw me in and hold me until the sweet end. I want more of Dave and Aaron.
Mika
GREAT!
I really enjoyed reading it. I couldn't stop reading it even when it got really late.
I loved the switched identity theme.

(I searching for books with a similar theme right now. If you can think of a suggestion please sent me a message.)
Yonaily
Me encantó el concepto de este libro, (quizás porque también tengo una hermana gemela). Se me hizo muy fácil leerlo y es un libro bueno para pasar el rato.
Page Crusherz
Enjoyable. I liked the MC, mostly...and I really liked the husband. I got a little lost with the mob parts, but it was a good book.
ElaineY
It was okay until Aaron turned into a clingy, needy li'l thing. I skimmed most of it after that and am not motivated to read the sequel.
Megan
Loved this story. The authors executed the premise wonderfully. Poor Aaron and Dave, my heart kept breaking for them.
Betryal
There wasn't any aspect of this story I didn't like. I enjoyed every page I read. That's all.
Kristy Maitz
That book is fullish. Plot is OMG awful and both main characters are written shallow.

I've read it more than once, each time I have different feelings.

This book reminds of the tv show on CW with Sarah Michelle Gellar...

A.J. Llewellyn lives in California, but dreams of living in Hawaii. Frequent trips to all the islands, bags of Kona coffee in the fridge and a healthy collection of Hawaiian records keep this writer refueled.

A.J’s passion for the islands led to writing a play about the last ruling monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani as well as a non-erotic novel about the overthrow of her kingdom written in dia...more
