Twice the Hands to Hold Review

Twice the Hands to Hold
by Louise Stevens
Genre: MM Romance

Twin brothers Brian and Matt Walker went to live with their mother’s brother after the death of their parents at an early age. Brian is still wracked with the guilt he carries around from a young age and sees the world through a distorted lens of self-loathing. When he meets a sexy and interested college-aged guy at the beginning of his senior year of high school, he may have finally found someone who can help him escape his mundane existence.

Matt has his life all planned out -- he longs for a solid career in journalism after graduating college. But his tenuous hold on family life threatens his dreams of independence, as does the attentions of a closeted new transfer to their school.

Can Matt pull away enough from his family to come into his own? And will Brian finally get to grips with his past and allow his twin to chase his own happiness?

My Review:

This book was really good. I enjoyed the dynamics of the family and their interactions. I will start by saying two scenes I felt were inapprioate and not needed. I almost didnt finish reading the book because of it. I checked reviews currently posted and when i saw no mention of the small/short brother on brother action I decided to keep reading. I am glad I did. The book got even better. The experiences each brother goes through and the family as a whole were devastating but it was amazing to see how they came together. I loved seeing the relationships outside of the family blossom and how easily they accepted who they are. Jakey their uncle is an amazing character, I did have a few questions on the storyline, and found 2 typos (not grammar, I had an ARC those are to be expected) Overall I give the book a 4 and would be very interested in reading more by the author.
