Story Overview:
Identical twins Aiden and Max Kingsman have been a matched set their whole lives. When they were children, Aiden was happy to follow his extroverted brother’s lead, but now that they’re in college, being “my brother, Aiden” is starting to get old. He’s itching to discover who he is outside of his “twin” identity.

Oliver’s goals for the summer are simple: survive his invasive family, keep his divorced parents from killing each other, and stay in shape for rowing season. He’s thrilled when he runs into his old friends, the Kingsman twins, especially Aiden, the object of a childhood crush. Aiden is all grown-up, but some things have stayed the same: his messy curls, his stability, and how breathless he makes Oliver. Oliver’s crush comes back full force, and the feeling is mutual. Summer just got a whole lot hotter.

Fun-loving Max takes one thing seriously: his role as “big brother.” When Aiden drifts away, Max can’t understand how his own twin could choose a boy over him. Summer won’t last forever, and with friendship, family, and happily ever after on the line, they’ll have to navigate their changing relationships before it’s too late.
My Review: 
This book was simply a sweet read that's perfect for summer reading. So I recommend you buy it now, so you'll have it to read this summer, while sitting in a hammock, and sipping a lemonade. Seriously, it's perfect for that. 

These guys haven't seen one another in about six years (I can't remember the exact amount of time), but once upon a time Oliver, Max and Aidan were inseparable. Oliver wanted to be a brother to the twins for real, mainly just because his home life was so miserable. So, it was no surprise when Oliver's parents got a divorce (his home life was miserable because his parents were fighting all the time). It was really sweet because they used to play wedding where Max (the ringleader for the group) and Oliver got married when they were little, but when they grew up, it was Aidan and Oliver who were gay...and I love how that scene tied in later...LOVE!!!!

I just really enjoyed the story and the conflict was really interesting. Twins are so close (I have brothers who are twins). It's got to be hard when suddenly they aren't one of the close two of a lifetime of being a team. 

I also really loved Oliver and how adamant he was about not getting between the twins. He's grown up with fighting and realizes how truly damaging the constant fighting can be.

I just really enjoyed the story. It was a thoroughly enjoyable read and I definitely recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
