BOOK REVIEW: Their Virgin Brat by SC Daiko

Genre: Contemporary/Menage Romance
Release Date: September 9, 2017


Super-hot twins for one bratty girl:

Aiden and Liam
Dad has remarried and our new step-sibling is a brat.
But we’re good at soothing difficult mares;
a slip of a girl should be no problem.
When we learn the brat still has her V card,
riding horses isn’t the only thing on our minds.
We can’t stop thinking about bratty Samantha,
breaking her in and making her ours.
Just for a short time.
At least, that’s the rule.
Except rules are made to be broken, right?

I’ve never been with one man,
let alone two,
and that suits me fine.
Men are trouble.
Aiden and Liam are so freaking hot, though,
soon all I want is their touch,
their kisses,
their gorgeous shafts.
I know what we’re doing is wrong.
They’re my twin step-siblings;
if our parents find out
all hell will break loose.
One rule: it’s only for a short time.

Will we lose everything by breaking that rule?

~Book Review~
3.5 Stars

The Roberts twins, Liam and Aiden, 30, show and train horses on their family farm, but they’re still skeptical of the arrival of their new step-sister, Samantha, 19, also a horse enthusiast.

While the premise suggests the tale’s smutty nature, it does in fact have a fairly developed story with intricate details of the horse business. For the most part, I think it balances the steam and story elements well.
“The door swings open and they stride into my room. They’re naked as the day they were born; their cocks dangle and swing as they stalk towards my bed, like predators after their prey.”
I liked that the twins worked together and were never competitive, both personally and professionally. You really felt as if they had each other’s backs, and no love triangle vibes were ever emitted. These guys shared well. ;-)

Even though it’s told via in alternating first person POV by Sam, Liam, and Aiden, I found the shift from the characters barely communicating to acting on their desires a bit abrupt. There’s also a time skip after their first night together that made the pace feel choppy. A little more relationship development in these areas could have been beneficial.

The “brat” theme felt really forced, and the term overused. A matter of ‘tell’ rather than ‘show,’ Samantha came across guarded rather than bratty. In places she did seem a bit sheltered or immature; her use of words like “tummy” and “down there” in her monologues made her sound childish. On that note, the twins did not seem thirty years old, at most maybe twenty-five. The guys were still likeable; they just didn’t seem nearly as old as they were said to be.

All in all, a safe ménage-romance that’s relatively low angst and pleasingly free of OW/OM drama.
