Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 16, 2017
Grief comes in many forms.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve... Right?
Except, what if you douse that grief with sex
in ways so culturally unacceptable
you leave it to a veritable male harem
led by the porn-star brother of your fiancé
to decide if you’ll emerge
from the jungle intact?
Twin Savage is standalone book #2 in the Porn Star Boyfriend series.
It wasn't a problem to be the only girl in a house full of guys.
Until my fiancé died and his identical twin took over the roost.
Sweet, easygoing Julian passed, while loathsome, bossy Luka, who pays his way through med school by getting his dick wet on film, is still alive.
What kind of twisted reality is this?
Now, Luka’s on a mission to fix both of our grief.
Like I’d ever accept anything from him.
He doesn’t understand that gorgeous and sexy mean nothing if you’re a promiscuous jerk.
If only the nights didn’t destroy me.
They’re painful and long and empty,
until, on a Monday night, my insomnia attracts Diego.
That Tuesday, it attracts Lenny.
Next, it’s Marlon, James, Nathaniel,
and on Saturday, it’s Connor.
By Sunday night, I get the picture.
This is Luka doing what Luka does: solve problems with sex.
His remote-controlled comfort leaves me in our roommates’ arms six of seven nights.
On Sunday, there’s only one man left in the house.
There’s no way in hell I’m opening my door—or my heart—to a porn star.
“I wish he didn’t do that,” I tell Lenny as I relax, cheek on his chest, drawing small circles around his nipple. “Luka thinks he’s the king of this place, in charge of everything that goes on here.”
“He kind of is.” Lenny’s voice is lazy. By now, I know he slides into a euphoric coma after he ejaculates. It’s adorable and a tad hot.
“No, he isn’t. Only about the rent and the utilities.”
“And about you.”
I lift my head and squint at him. “Luka is not in charge of me.”
Lenny narrows his eyes too, an easy feat. I ignore how beautiful he is beneath me. “No, but he’s who came up with our solution.”
“What are you talking about?”
He studies me, eyes widening more than usual after against-the-wall sex. “Hmm, you look like you’re working yourself up.”
“What does it matter? Just give me the lowdown.”
“Well, if you’re gonna go witch-nutty on me, I don’t know if I should.”
I lower my voice. “Witch-nutty? What does that even mean?”
“You know. All...” He lifts his hands in the air and waves them lazily while half-rolling his eyes. Not impressive.
“What solution, Lenny, or your sex life has to fend for itself from now on.”
“As if it doesn’t six days out of the week.”
“What did Luka come up with?”
“We had a house meeting.”
“It was about you, so yeah. We saw how you were struggling to keep it together after Julian passed away, and Luka came up with what we’re doing now.”
“As in invading my bedroom every night? Taking turns with me?”
“I guess?” He looks at me as if he just realizes how bad it sounds.
“That’s some crazy shit. Only a pervert like Luka could’ve come up with it.”
Lenny’s brows tick in a furrow. “Well, I figured it was too obvious to work on you, but Luka insisted, we gave it a try, and hey, you went along with it. You seem better too.”
My stomach churns. “Who does he think he is? He has no right to set up some get-’er-done plan for me. I’m in charge of my own life, my own future, and…” I sigh. “Luka’s a pig.”
I mean it. Even though I’m disgruntled, I twist my arms around Lenny’s middle needing his nearness. I’m not exactly backing myself up, here, but Lenny doesn’t hold it against me. Instead he wraps me closer and nuzzles against my hair. Murmurs, “Shh, you’re okay, babe.”
“What about the days? Did he assign them too?”
Lenny nods, rocking us with his chin. “Yeah, which made sense.”
“Why, because you didn’t want to deal with me more than once a week?”
He chuckles. “It was more so that we’d all have our turns consoling you.”
“Sleeping with me, you mean,” I say, feeling slutty and berating myself for it in the same thought.
“I’m not gonna lie and say it’s not a pleasure to comfort you.”
I arch an eyebrow. “So I shouldn’t feel bad for you guys?”
I let out a huh?
“Did you see Marlon earlier?”
I bite my lip. “Yes?”
“That’s how most of us feel the rest of the week. Tuesdays are the shit.”
“Even when I go all witch-nutty on you?”
His grin gleams white. “Have you heard me complain? Sparks are the shit too.”

"They were the same, only absolutely, utterly not."
I confess that like most readers, the title intrigued me. Yes, I was curious about porn stars and wanted to get an inside look at the industry. I assumed that's what was in store for me as I started the series. I later learned that though there are some adult entertainment industry details, the stories are much deeper than that. Let's hope that the author is tolerant when I say that after deep consideration, using porn star terminology, I find her to be a type of literary 'fluffer' in a sense. She uses our own curiosity to arouse us and prepare us for a performance. However; the reality is much more than I was expecting.
I'm not sure what I expected from the single female living with seven male roommates. She shared a room with her fiance, Julian. Over time they formed a family of sorts, as they shared a remodeled frat house that they called the Queen. She called the guys Fratters. And Luka, her fiance's twin, she called him lots of things, none of them complimentary. She was disgusted by his chosen profession and never let him forget it. When her sweet man passed away, it tore her up seeing his face on the evil twin. Why did the good die young, and the bad ones live to torture the ones going through hell? "He's perfection of the most imperfect kind."
I admit that seeing Luka through her eyes, knowing she despised him, made it hard for me to like him at first. Actually, I kind of had trouble liking her too. Being such an analytical person, with a head full of thoughts and opinions about everything, I struggled to understand her. I met her in the middle of her grief so our introduction wasn't one of humor and witty banter, that came later. I was guilty of forming opinions about her, just like what she was doing with Luka. I'm sure this was all part of the author's plan as she dragged me kicking and screaming into the abyss as I attempted to wrap my head around what was happening. The deeper I went, the more invested I became, and the more attached I got to the Fratters.
What started as a grieving process turned into something more. The author led me down a path, opening my eyes and my heart as I shared the emotional journey of lost love and loneliness. She made me see things from another perspective, one that I hadn't previously considered or would have ever imagined on my own. And then, when I was finally on the verge of acceptance, she took it a step further and stretched my mind some more. That woman that was so smart and analytical, viewing people and situations clinically, had a new understanding after experiencing such grief. She was more tolerant and emotional. She softened towards Luka and won me over.
Of course, I wanted her to see Luka as more than a porn star. I wanted their fighting to turn into passion. But I also understood her reluctance to share him with his profession. That alone would keep her walls up and make it almost impossible for him to show her the person he was behind his reputation. What a position the author put me in by showing me both sides of the situation and making me love and understand both of them. And I can't even begin to tell you how she blew my mind with the parallel situation that was so damn interesting and thought-provoking.
As I turned the last page, wishing it wasn't over, I sighed with satisfaction. I'm exhausted after reading all night, unable to walk away from Twin Savage. I'm also very appreciative of the journey and the new awareness I achieved in the process. This book is so much more than it's cover and title and I really hope that it gets the recognition it deserves. I can't even begin to guess what the author has in store for us next, but I can't wait to find out. The line forms here...
