I came across it and randomly started to read it.

Summary taken from Goodreads:

Pushing the sensual limits can set off all kinds of alarms... Turner Twins, Book 1 Inheriting her grandmother's home is a dream come true for web designer Maxine Turner. She's looking forward to a little freedom from the constant demands of her beloved, crazy mob of a family. When vandals expose just how vulnerable she is living alone, she seeks help. Ryan Claymore's well-thought-out life was wrenched out from under him when responsibility for his special-needs stepbrother landed on his shoulders. Going from military man to business man hasn't been easy. He counts himself lucky he's found Maxine to trade his security-system knowledge for her website expertise. The red-hot chemistry that sizzles between them comes from out of the blue, and they both fight a losing battle to resist. Even the secret Ryan hides isn't enough to keep Maxine from working her way into his heart-and his bed. But something else might tear them apart. Whoever seems determined to destroy her home, and her sanity along with it. Warning: Realistic multiple orgasm sex scenes, men getting in touch with their emotions, brothers being-well-brothers, and a very tempting back-porch have been warned.


Although I’m coming to realize that books from this genre just might not be for me I found that so far this one was a little more entertaining than some of the others I have read. Other than just the adult moments in this book there was quite a bit of story line, which I liked. Basically Maxine is receiving some harassing phone calls and then vandalism and Ryan believes she is in dangers. Of course the majority of this story is all about…well the adult stuff…I was happy to see a story line and one that seemed pretty realistic.


Ryan: Maybe a little over protective, but all around good guy.

Maxine: She’s trying her hardest to be an independent woman and I have to give her props for that.


There were some predictable moments, and the male was a predictable Alpha male. True, if he was anything else it probably wouldn’t be an interesting read, however, It would have been nice to see a more Alpha woman…if that makes any more sense. But then again the Alpha male situation represents the majority of books for this genre.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall the writing was well done. I was never left confused or having to re-read something. I did enjoy seeing a more independent woman who didn’t want to be a burden to the people in her life. The story line was a little predictable and I wish that authors for this genre in general would write more in depth plots with more twists and turns to provide a more adrenalin filled novel that goes along with the romance.
