Aspiring artist Samantha Spencer has been around the BDSM lifestyle for years, but she has never had a taste of it. When identical twins Alexei and Stefano Morozov propose a night of sensuous pleasure, free-spirited Sam jumps at the chance to experience something new, even though she knows it has to be just a passing fling. She’s very close to her family, and she knows there is no way they would accept this unconventional relationship.

But one night isn’t enough for the Morozov brothers. They’ve found the one woman who can complete them, and they’re not willing to give her up. For her, they’ll have to pretend to be one man.

Samantha isn’t comfortable with this arrangement. It feels too much like a betrayal. Can she find the courage to stand up for what she wants and honor the two men who love her?

There are some books that you read one time and never revisit. Some books you save in hopes of reading in the future. Two Masters for Samantha by Michele Zurlo is one of those books that you want to read over and over again. Even though this book is a stand-alone story, it was so good that when I finished it I had to find the first two books in the series to add too my eBook library.

Coming from a family with three sets of twins, I loved reading about Alexei and Stefano -- identical twins who have a history of switching places. Can you imagine the kind of trouble the two could cause, when they share everything -- their looks, careers, and their women? Just a hint of what a girl could face: when the Morozon brother set their sights on Samantha Spencer at a wedding, they try their switching act only to find she can tell them apart.

As the story unfolded, I had to stop and turn on the fan because the room was getting hot. The sex education lesson on the difference between Consecutive and Concurrent sex from Samantha's sister and girlfriends gave me a visual picture of what Samantha would face taking on two Dom males. The detailed lesson in the BDSM life style was an added bonus to both Samantha and myself.

I must say it was delightful watching the story play out and see if these two Alpha males could give Samantha what she wanted and needed. I wondered if they would teach her just what being a sub was all about and see if she would desert her pride and beg. Or perhaps Stefano and Alexei would end up begging? Yes, this book has a heavy BDSM theme, and personally, I was not to sure if I liked the idea of the master/slave part of it when I started reading, but overall I found the story was loaded with hot sexual scenes, a few laughs in places, and was an all around enjoyable read.

Myrtle,
Thanks for the thoughtful review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Though this does stand alone, reading the first two books in the series will help you get to know some of the minor characters in Two Masters for Samantha, and they are much lighter on the BDSM.
