Danny O’Shay grew up knowing he never really fit in. His family avoids him. He falls so much that the staff at the local hospital know him by first name. And he can’t get a date to save his life.
Enter handsome fire fighters, Ben and Abe Lake, two men that bring every fantasy Danny ever had to life. Except Ben and Abe seem to have some business deal with Danny’s father that involves a ton of money and the assumption that Danny has a clue.
When Ben and Abe start talking about fated mates, shifters, and a family legacy that goes back decades, Danny is pretty sure they belong in an insane asylum. But as he gets to know the handsome twins, he begins to wonder if being crazy is that bad. Being alone again seems worse.
After someone starts trying to take Danny out of the picture permanently, he has to believe that Ben and Abe are trustworthy and not in on the plot to kill him, because they might be the only thing to keep his life from going up in flames.
Poor Danny is a walking disaster. So much so, the hospital staff know him by name and he knows most of them. He can't help that he's clumsy, it's just his brain is wired slightly differently to other people's. Which is why, when his father calls him to insist on him turning up at the family home for lunch, he can't understand why. He's never been good enough for his family and that hadn't changed. After his twenty fifth birthday he learns why.
He was a serial killer's perfect victim - no friends, no family, no job in the real world, no one to report him missing. He didn't even have a cat.
Abe and his twin Ben are more than annoyed when they go to pick up Danny and realize the man doesn't even know who they are - or what they are. It seems there were more than a few holes in Danny's education. Abe and Ben have lived for twenty five years knowing Danny was their mate; Danny doesn't even know shifter's exist.
Danny had no idea that he could ask Abe to walk to the moon and the man would find a way to do it just to make Danny happy.
I loved how Ms. Glenn played out the whole "not knowing about shifters, and learning about them" issue. Danny's reaction was perfect and while my heart broke for him and the life that he'd led, I was rooting for him to have an HEA from page two.
The twin mating concept was really well done - no twincest for those of you who are worried about such things, although a double claiming - and yes, that means exactly what it sounds like. Most of the story concerns Danny, Abe and Ben but the glimpses we have of secondary characters are great - Dr. Jones, Betty and Vinnie and the grandmother was hilarious in a positively feisty way. Their appearance all added color to the story and I am hoping, given that the twins have twin siblings, that this is the start of another great series. I adored these characters and hope to see a lot more of them.
Favorite line: I might be a pebble compared to someone built like a boulder but I can still cause a lot of damage if I'm pissed off.
