Two rough endings can equal one hot beginning.

Raygan Mason is done with love. After plenty of failed relationships, he wants no part of the emotion. He’s broken inside and believes he’s not worthy of redemption…until he meets a man named after a car. Then his structured, but closed off world gets turned upside down.

Jamie “Jeep” Grusin isn’t big on love, either. Fresh out of a marriage filled with cheating and lies, he’s not looking for another partner. The writer wants a fresh start and is told Zero will cure what ails him. He’s not convinced…until he ends up at Eight Ball bar.

Can two men who think they are totally wrong for each other find out that redemption and a new start is so right?

Time for Healing!

Raygan and Jamie (or Jeep) both has failed relationships however, Raygan’s past contains so much more and that comes through clear as day from the start. Raygan and Jamie (Jeep) work well together as a couple. They do have chemistry but I do think the amount of passion that comes across is sometimes overshadowed by the information dump. In addition to that I do feel that the writing could have been much smoother. The background info that was given was a bit distracting since it came in clumps.

There are also some contrasts in the character and the writing that kept me from clearly understanding the character. In one scene Jamie knows what he wants and who he wants but then a couple pages later the complete opposite is being said. However, this could be testament to the kind of person Jamie has become due to his ghosts but I couldn’t be sure. Both Jamie and Raygan have been hurt in the past. They both have ghosts that they need to slay and they do.

I did enjoy the plot and the ending is surprisingly different but well laid out.

This is the first book I have read in this series and it could be read as a standalone. Readers who enjoy some steamy M/M should give this one a try and maybe find a whole series to jump into.


  1. Sounds interesting. I haven’t read many m/m stories, but enjoyed the ones that I have read. Thank you for sharing your honest opinion. 🙂
