Review: Ravenous by L.L. Collins (Kingsley Brothers #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Sassy Savvy Fabulous PR in exchange for an honest review.

Ravenous is the first in an unnamed duet from bestselling author L.L. Collins. This is the story of a twenty-one-year-old college student named Raven Phillips who decides to become an escort in hopes of earning the kind of money that will allow her to provide a better life for her younger sister. Her first client is thirty-year-old renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Porter Kingsley, a man who is as good looking as he is successful and who is taken by his escort during their evening together. After one kiss, however, she dismisses him but suggests that he's free to get in touch with her handler for another appointment. The next one, though, turns out to be with Port's identical twin brother, Brecken, a high school teacher considered a disappointment compared to his far more distinguished sibling. Breck is as drawn to Raven as Port was, and that was even before Breck and Raven had formally met. There's no pretending that Raven is attracted to both brothers, but just like with all things in her life, having Port and Breck constantly making their presence felt may force Raven to make a choice, one that may lead to three broken hearts.

This book so went in a direction I couldn't have predicted. A lot of stories that involve siblings--or even best friends--that are in love with the same person tend to veer in one particular direction, but L.L. Collins has done her bit of creative magic and has made Ravenous a stand-out. I loved Raven! She was independent and truly wanted nothing but the best for her younger sister Chrissy. I definitely didn't envy the position she was in. Can you imagine having two men who look exactly the same falling for you and you being caught in the middle? It may sound flattering but the pressure that was on her to not be the reason these two closest of brothers become estranged for going after the same woman was immense. There are a couple of twists in the story, and I won't say who Raven ends up with. However, what I will say is that whoever she doesn't end up with gets his own shot at happily-ever-after in the second book, Insatiable, which is due for release later this year. If you're looking for a well-written love story with romance, sex, and angst, Ravenous may very well be the ticket. I'm giving this full-length novel five stars. ♥
