Some hearts can be repaired. Others should just be totaled.
Carver always thought he could sense when Roman was on the verge of falling into his inner darkness. But this time, Carver misses those cues and leads the police on a high-speed race to the ER, praying his Barracuda won't die on the way.
When Roman awakens from the haze of painkillers and alcohol, he already knows the question poised on Carver's lips. Was it an accident, or did he deliberately dance on the edge of death? How can he tell Meep that lust and laughter are no longer enough to help him cope with the rapid changes among the Hot Rods?
Part of him is happy for them. The other part is pissed. Because what he's always wanted is Carver all to himself. Much as he loves his brother mechanics, sharing isn't his strong suit.
Roman needs time - and distance - to get his head on straight. The only question is, when Roman comes home from rehab, will Carver still love the man he has become, or will their roads have diverged too far to cross each other again?

Beautiful written story on Roman and Carver's relationship. Some thorny topics are dealt with sensitivity Listening to Gregory Salinas as narrator is truly wonderful
I really enjoy the entire Hot Rods (and the Powertools before it) series. They're not just hot stories (with majorly hot guys) getting on with each other (and their ladies, as well) the whole time. The stories are very "real" in the sense that these people have real issues that they deal with on a daily basis and the plots have meat. I find them very well written and they suck me in every time I listen to them or read them.
There is one scene with Carver, aka Meep, that is just heartrending. Without giving anything away, it shows that Cuda isn't the only one that's still broken.
He narration of all them is spot on. His Cuda is a sexy as it was when I "heard" it in my head when reading the books. There are a lot of men in the Hot Rods, but he makes it easy to tell who is speaking when.
Roman aka Cuda has been my favorite from the start. He's so broken, but he tries so hard and loves Carver so deeply. In this book, and in some of the other, Cuda has had me choked up if not in actual tears more than once. And there is one scene with Carver that really, really choked me up.
I adore Jayne Rylon's books, but they aren't for everyone. Not every reader enjoys stories centered around poly, male/male, and/or non "traditional" relationships, but if you do you will LOVE the Hot Rods. And don't forget to check out the Powertools series, as they play a very important part in Hot Rods.
I'm new to audio books so I'm listening to books I've read already. I love it!!! Being able to get chores done while listening to my favorite books.... win win in my book!!! Loved listening to Roman and Carter's story!!! Well done!!
The whole story ! ! Truly an fantastic book !
Showing that anyone can overcome a problem both emotional, physical and alcohol. Not only did Barracuda overcome so much and came out on top, but he found unconditional love and a brother.
You get to hear the emotion. He does a great job.
YES ! !
