Why I read this: I finished reading Mercy Celeste’s Southern Scrimmage Series and marked her as a go-to author. I saw that Two Point Conversion was being talked about on networking sites, and before really realizing what the story was about, I purchased it to read.
On his 19th birthday Kyle Beauchamp gets the surprise of his life—a make out session in the back of the bus. With his wide receiver.
Kevin Beauchamp loves two things, football and Kyle. After a rough game and a discreet blow job in the back of the bus, Kevin’s life will never be the same. But the love of his life is straight, and off limits in more ways than one.
When Kyle returns his feelings, Kevin has to decide if a few nights of intense passion is worth destroying their future. He knows one thing—loving his twin might be wrong, but losing Kyle would be like losing the other half of his soul.

The Cover: At first I thought the cover was simple, the image of the backs of two men, similar in body height and build. The bright lights of a stadium turned on them seemed appropriate since they play football. When I looked at it again to give my thoughts on it, I saw more than the original image. I saw two men, standing side by side with the world looking at them because of who they are, who they love. I see them standing together to face what’s to come.
My Thoughts: As I said before, I didn’t know what the book was about before buying it. I was introduced to the concept of “twincest.” I admit I was a little worried. The idea of siblings, twin siblings entering into a physical relationship was a little bit weird to me. I can say that I’ve never had the slightest desire to be with one of my siblings that way. I expected that I might find it disturbing, but ended up feeling the exact opposite.I understood their love for each other, I empathized with it. I rooted for them. And I devoured the moments of physical connection between them with pleasure.
The two young men can’t deny what they are feeling about each other, though they question the appropriateness of their relationship several times in the book. They skirt around the dangers of being discovered but can’t resist the draw they have to one another. I can’t resist reading about their chemistry. I was engrossed in their love and horrified when they were finally caught in the act. I wasn’t horrified because they were doing something they weren’t supposed to be doing. I was horrified that there was someone who was going to try to tell them it was wrong. It wasn’t wrong to me. I had made a turn around since when I found out what the book was about. I was relieved when the boys found support in unexpected places.
The story isn’t particularly long, and I would have loved to read more about Kyle and Kevin, and what will become of them with College looming on the horizon. I felt invested in the characters and want to read more. I am very glad my first foray into the genre was written by Mercy Celeste because she excels at evoking emotion in her readers and creating beautiful characters you can’t help but fall in love with as well.
I would say my first taste of “twincest” fiction was positive and I would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to look beyond the “norm” and their preconceived notions, and see it as an example of pure love.
