Four years ago Aaron swapped lives with his twin brother Troy, who was in trouble with the mob.

When Troy’s insane plot to let his twin take the fall for his screwed up life unraveled and it appeared Troy’s life was over, Aaron hoped his life with David could truly begin.

Aaron and David now run a B & B on a beautiful Hawaiian island, and life is almost perfect until the handsome and charming Randy Carlton buys the house down the beach from them.

I will begin this by saying that I did not read book 1.
I loved this story.  It’s not often that you get to see exact opposites in a story.
This tale had mystery, murder, love, deception and sacrifice.  Troy was devious to the Nth degree – which I loved.  But, he was also conniving and manipulative, which was awesome for this story.  I loved to hate this character and the authors did a great job at portraying him.
Then you have Aaron – he was like the lost puppy who was repeatedly kicked.  It was sad and heart wrenching to watch his struggle through this story.  But, in the end, he was resilient.
Finally, you have Dave.  He was not a super huge part of the story, but he was integral nonetheless.  He played his part perfectly and I truly felt for him.
Coming together in a perfect storm, these characters portrayed this amazing story.  I loved it and read it all in one sitting.  It’s not long, but it’s packed with all aspects that make a great story.

A.J. Llewellyn

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 diary form from her maid’s point of view.

A.J. never lacks inspiritation for male/male erotic romances and on the rare occasion this happens, pursues other passions such as collecting books on Hawaiiana, surfing and spending time with friends and animal companions.

A.J. Llewellyn believes that love is a song best sung out loud.

I write not only for my own pleasure, but for the pleasure of my readers. I can’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t written and told stories. When I’m not writing, I’m dreaming about writing, doing something wild and adventurous, or trying to make the world a better and more open minded place to live in. I adore beautiful men, and I know I’m not alone in this! Eroticism between consenting adults, in all its many forms is the icing on the cake of life!
