Where Nerves End

Tucker Springs Book 1

I think this is my favorite book by this author. This is a slow burn love story between Jason, a night club owner, and Michael and accupuncturist. Jason is in chronic pain with a shoulder injury and he goes to see Michael after a referral from a mutual friend. The two men become roommates and quickly realize they are attracted to each other. Michael is deep in the closet so it takes some time before they get together and of course there is the immediate back peddling from him once they hook up.

The writing was good and the story flowed well. I found both guys interesting and Jason in particular was easy to relate to. I didn't completely buy how Michael went from not wanting to have a relationship to "I can't live without you" but I liked the story overall enough that it didn't bother me. I thought the author did a really good job making you feel how bad Jason's pain was and I thought her information on accupunture and cupping was spot on.

I recommend this book and I personally will be going back to read the rest of the books in the series.


Book Blurb for Where Nerves End

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. But all of it at once? Not so much. When his shoulder finally pushes him to a breaking point, Jason takes a friend’s advice and gives acupuncture a try.

Acupuncturist Michael Whitman is a single dad struggling to make ends meet. When a mutual friend refers Jason as a patient, and Jason suggests a roommate arrangement to alleviate their respective financial strains, Michael jumps at the opportunity.

But Jason soon finds himself regretting it—he’s too damn attracted to Michael, and living with him is harder than he thought it’d be. In fact, the temptation to act on his feelings would almost be too much if not for the fact that Michael is straight. Or at least, that’s what their mutual friend claims.

(Note: This is a revised second edition, with minor additions, of the first edition originally published elsewhere.)
