The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not. Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white. But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins. 

Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her. Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together. 
Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them. Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire. She wants them both. And they want her. How will she ever choose between them?
Smoking hot! After a few days trying to get my ideas together about this book, I am finally able to write a proper review about it. I absolutely loved it, loved the characters, the plot and most of all the steamy scenes shared between the characters. The twists and turns, the Oh! and Ah! All those moments of this book made it worth my time. I applaud M. Leighton for creating this piece of work.

Olivia, our female protagonist, is a student trying to make her way through college, by working hard to go back home and help her dad. Olivia recently had a bad experience with a guy, now she tries to avoid relationships. This is until she meets Cash and Nash, the twins. Oh yeah, twins! As in double the trouble, gorgeous, hot, swoony and panty-melting duo.

Cash is the trouble maker, the type of man that mommy told you to stay away from. He has many of your typical bad-boy characteristics; bike rider, owns a nightclub, tattooed.  He is absolutely charming and hot. Nash is the total opposite; he is sweet, successful law student working hard for his future. He is the type of guy that you would love to take home to your parents.

I like Olivia, I love how determined she is, how much she is willing to sacrifice for what she wants. She doesn't let anyone get in her way or tell her what she can or can't do. She doesn't want to get tangled up in a bad relationship with a guy, much less two guys. But her attractions to the twins is noticeable, yes, the two of them and the twins are attracted to her as well.

M. Leighton manages to play with three POVs and she does it perfectly. The reader never gets lost as to who is currently talking. Each of the characters have their own unique way. The transition between chapters is smooth. Also, you get to know and develop a relationship with each one of them, which sometimes for me is hard if the book has more than two POVs. I was eagerly turning pages to see how the story was going to develop. The sexy scenes were HOT, I really mean hot! Like you-might-need-a-cold-shower hot! I personally really enjoy them *wink wink*. I was not expecting the major plot twist, it caught me by surprise and had to pick up my jaw from the floor after that. Well done.  

Bottom line, I enjoyed this book a lot! I am looking forward to the others books in this series, because c'mon, after reading the last part of the book you are left like: What in the effing
world? … I would totally recommend this book.
