Liz Borino

EXPECTATIONS depicts the struggle between what we desire for
ourselves and our familial obligations. The struggle is personified by Chris and Matt Taylor, identical twins, who are trying to win their overbearing father's approval and acquire their trust funds. Love, money, and desire collide as Matt and Chris decide what's really important to them. ~ Goodreads

Have you ever had a book that once you started it, pretty much DEMANDED that you not set it down until you are finished? Well, that's what you get when you pick up a copy of Expectations by Liz Borino.

It actually pulls you in so far that as you are reading portions that are emotion filled, you can feel your own heart rate increase, or your palms become sweaty, a tear may slip down your cheek, and you may just find yourself smiling from ear to ear.

Matt and Chris, the sons of a very wealthy and powerful man are doing everything they can to be their own person. While at the same time daddy dearest is doing everything he can to at the very least turn out one son who is just like himself. Both with trust funds that come with "rules", there comes a moment when both Matt and Chris have to look in the mirror and figure out what is most important for their own lives.

After reading this book I come away feeling even stronger about the fact that, well . . Love is Love. It doesn't come with a road map, or rules that must be followed. Love just happens. Love shared between two people, it's beautiful . . no matter the gender make up.

I absolutely enjoyed reading this book, and would recommend it to anyone willing to open their mind and give it a go.
