Bestselling author Allison Hobbs does it again with a sizzling tale of one brother's love and another's betrayal.

When Tariq and Shane Batista are four years old, they witness an act of terror that no child should ever be subjected to: their mentally unstable mother is murdered right in front of them. Even though they are twins, Tariq and Shane grow into very different young men. Tariq is the kindhearted “golden boy,” while Shane is dark and brooding, angry and deceitful. They are placed in foster homes together, but Shane is sent to reform school as a teenager. When they're reunited, Shane has two shady sidekicks, Brick and Misty. He seems content to play the part of small-time gigolo, getting by on the financial support of the women who flock to him. Tariq, meanwhile, has an unconventional yet stable home life, complete with a wife and a child. The brothers remain close until Shane is lured back out on the prowl. As he delves deeper into infidelity and danger, he tests the boundaries of his brother's friendship and the limits of their unconditional love.
