Where Nerves End (Tucker Springs #1) by L.A. Witt
Welcome to Tucker Springs, Colorado: Population, 70-something-thousand. Home to beautiful mountain views, two respected universities, and a ridiculously high cost of living.
Jason Davis can handle a breakup. And an overwhelming mortgage. And a struggling business. And the excruciating pain that keeps him up at night thanks to a shoulder injury. Handling all of it at once? Not so much. When his shoulder finally pushes him to a breaking point, he takes a friend’s advice and gives acupuncture a try.
Michael Whitman is a single dad struggling to make ends meet. When a mutual friend refers a patient, and that patient suggests a roommate arrangement to alleviate their respective financial strains, Michael jumps at the opportunity.
Living together would be easy if Jason wasn’t so damned attracted to Michael. Good thing Michael’s straight, or the temptation might just be too much.
Well, their mutual friend says Michael is straight…
There's a funny story to getting this book I have to tell first, see I'm a big LA Witt fan right? so I bought this book as soon as it came out on Amazon, well a few days earlier I had enter a contest to win a copy of this book, now I'm not kidding when I say I'm extremely forgetful or my ADD kicks in and I just plain think like I'll check my email and then realize I forgot to check for three days. What can I say I make a gazillion notes to myself all the time. Anyway back to the contest I ended up winning so bless her heart Ms. Witt was kind enough to let choose something else, which she didn't have to do but she did, so first off here's a thank you to Ms. Witt and now we'll go on to review.
I honestly don't think I have ever read a LA Witt book that didn't reach in an grab my heart to where I fell head over heels in love with each character or cried my friggin eyes out over the intense emotions that I feel as do her characters. This book is no different while Jason became such an endearing character for me, I mean the guys heart is broken, his body seems to be falling apart and his finances are killing him and he's literally hanging on by a thread, he doesn't want to give up he's trying to think of ways to not only save his business but his house as well. He just won't give up I loved that about his character.
Michael took me some getting to know before I loved his character, the part I think that got me was the first guy he's with, maybe it's just me but it irked the hell outta me and then the whole lets go back to roommates deal He made my Jason cry I did not like that about him. But as he finally pulls his head outta his ass I gave him another shot he took it and scored big time YAY! And I gotta say my absolute favorite character was Seth I really hope to get his story soon. And Dammit I love it when I learn something new in a story like when I learned how to make Dirty Kisses (it's a drink) from same named book by Sean Michael Love them by the way you have to be careful you can't taste the rum at all LOL Yes I learned that the hard way But in this book Doc Michael tells Jason how to lessen the pain of headaches which No Shit it works I have tried it. That totally rocked. I highly recommend this wonderful story. And OMG can't wait for the next one in this series which is written by Heidi Cullinan & Marie Sexton YAY my coffee & porn in the morn girls!!!!
