Branda meets one of the Cortino twins in a bookstore, then discovers that they live next door to the house, where she is house-sitting.  Branda is trying to start a business and generally get her life together after an attack. Troy and Trey have been looking for the one to make the family blessing come true when they find Branda. 

Blessed Times Two is a wonderful story of family traditions and legends passed down from generation to generation, as well as a coming-of-age type story.  I liked the way the author used a legend about a fisherman with a new twist.  I had to laugh at the test used though but once the entire legend is spelled out, it makes a lot of sense.   

Branda is overcoming an attack and is very self-consciousness about her looks.  The author wove a lot of angst about her looks, her family and her experience into the story to show why she acts the way she does.  Branda could be an every day woman that is smart, business savvy, but very self-conscious about appearances, while trying to bury emotions.  She could be any one of my friends, for that matter.   

Trey and Troy are ecstatic, once they discover Branda is their true love.  The men come from a family that welcomes new members into the fold, with no questions asked.  This family also has a lot of traditions to help welcome Branda that I absolutely loved and, if possible, would like to incorporate some into my own family.   

Be warned that the chemistry between the three is hot.  There are a few very tense moments that make your heart pound and make your mind race about where this is going.  With the help of family and friends, everything gets resolved.  The love of family and friends comes through very clearly and I will be reading this one again.
