Kat O’Connor is no pushover. She’s a no-nonsense girl with a common-sense approach to life. But there’s nothing common about what’s happening to her lately….
First she was forced to have a kinky mind ménage with two of the hottest and most irritating men in the galaxy – Twin Kindred warriors Deep and Lock – in order to locate her kidnapped friend. Then she couldn’t get their feelings out of her head. And now she’s on her way to their home planet, Twin Moons, to find a cure for the debilitating illness their unorthodox joining caused, when all she really wants to do is go home.
Locks Tight, the light twin of the two, is already in love with Kat. Her curvy, plus-sized body is the epitome of beauty on his home planet, and her sharp mind makes her doubly attractive. Though he fell for her the moment he saw her, Twin Kindred are unable to mate a woman alone. Lock knows nothing can happen between them without his brother….
Stabs Deep. The dark twin has a secret agony in his past – a tragedy he feels he and he alone is to blame for. He, too, hungers for Kat, but he hides his fear of rejection behind an impenetrable wall of angry sarcasm. For if he lets anyone get too close, the unbearable pain he has already endured once may happen again.
Now Kat and her twin warriors are on a quest – but they’re all looking for different things. Kat wants to find a way to dissolve the half-formed bond between them so she can be alone in her own head again. Lock wants to convince both her and his brother to complete the bond that will keep them together forever. And Deep is trying to protect his heart and love Kat from afar…though it grows more and more difficult to deny the hunger he feels for her growing inside him.

I really enjoyed the progression of the plot lines in this book. I just hated the “issues” of Kat and the twins. Seriously, super hot guys want you!! Get over it and get busy with them! I never really understood her reasons for holding back with them, it was flimsy at best. Beyond that, the Scourge plot was fascinating. There was so much happening in that dynamic. Finally, we get much more of the backstory with these guys and the Kindred. I hope there is more to come on that front!

The steam here was much like the other books in the series. Lots of foreplay and teasing, mating doesn’t happen until the end. All the repetition in the grouping gets daunting. Kay and Deep are stubborn beyond belief, poor Lock! BTW, what is up with the blatantly sexual names of all these twins! 

The mixed narrative, was good to get into the heads of everybody, as annoying as they were at times. The supporting characters were more interesting to me than the leads. This was not my favorite grouping, however, I have hope the next book will be much better. If the story hints are any indication it will be a deep book! 

Anne Johnstonbrown does a fantastic job with the narration of the audiobook. She has a fast pace in the read and plenty of great energy. She made the slower parts of the story move nicely. Her tone is smooth and flows beautifully with the series. I do hope she will keep with the books! 

The Twin Moons world was much stranger than I expected. Um… mating fruit sounds dangerous! I have liked that this book and the last one took us to their worlds and gave a taste of the men’s cultures. It makes the world creature all the more creative and engaging. 

I really hope the series progresses past the unending struggle of the women deciding to mate with the ridiculously hot and sweet aliens. Seriously, I would be all over that and then some!

    I don’t have a lot of patience when I can’t buy the reason for the denial. I think I’ll give this one a pass. Thanks for the review!

      This was kind of the end for me. While the series was intriguing, the reluctance of the ladies was too much. If they had real reasons, but they were all unfounded in my opinion.
