More About This Book

Overview

Genre: LGBT; Contemporary

The Brothers Grime is Jack Masterson's way of helping people in crisis after disability ends his career as a firefighter. Jack's people get to a scene long after the physical trauma ends. They don't solve crime or rescue the victims. They help people move on. The new job is all Jack wants or needs, until he gets the call about old flame Nick Foasberg's suicide.

Ryan Halloran's cousin Nick has been on a downhill slide for a long time. Despite that, Ryan does everything he knows to help. Ryan only understands part of what happened between Nick and Jack in high school, but after Nick's suicide, Ryan agrees both he and Jack need closure. They work together to clean the scene and despite the situation, heat flares between them.

Jack is keeping a painful secret and fighting his attraction to Nick's lookalike cousin, Ryan. Ryan calls himself a magnet for lost causes and worries Jack might be the next in a long line of losers. Despite his misgivings, despite the past and the mistakes they've both made, Jack gives Ryan something to look forward to, and Ryan gives Jack a reason to stop looking back, in Grime And Punishment.

    3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book

    3.5 Stars
    ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    Z.A. Maxfield gets some bonus marks for writing a series about a job cleaning up crime scenes. You don’t see it often and that’s one of the things that caught my attention in the first place. This book felt a little different in terms of tone from the usual ZAM book. There’s still some great dialogue and fun moments, but ZAM also focuses on secrets as well as some far more darker emotions that you will see when you read the book.

    Jack Masteron is an ex-firefighter who suffered from an injury. He is now cleaning up crime scenes. He gets a call from Detective Huntley that his first love, Nick Halloran has committed suicide. Instead of mourning that, Jack believes that cleaning up the mess will help him find closure. Why? I have no idea, but it opens up a can of worms that makes for a good story.

    As Jack does this morbid task, he meets Ryan Holloran, Nick’s cousin and this is really where the torment lies. The resemblance is striking and takes Jack a minute to process what is in front of him. There’s a lot of strength in this book, but since it’s coming from a dark place, there is also a lot of time spent on trying to shred that pain until Jack finds it within himself to love again.

    While not my favorite of ZAM’s books, GRIME AND PUNISHMENT still holds a lot of appeal. It’s quite a different take that I haven’t seen on M/M but still ansty and good regardless.

    What a surprise! I knew very little about this book before I sta

    What a surprise! I knew very little about this book before I started, but I found that I enjoyed it quite a lot. It had a really interesting storyline and some hot mm lovin’!

    Jack Masterson is a former firefighter whose career was cut short after an on-the-job fall left him with an artificial knee and chronic pain. He now runs a crime scene clean-up company, The Brothers Grime, with his cousin Gabe and their friend Eddie.

    He receives a tip about a job from Detective Dave, his very much in-the-closet friend with benefits. Jack finds out that his old flame/first love Nick Foasberg committed suicide. When he bids the job, he meets Nick’s cousin Ryan.

    They decide to do the clean-up together to get the closure they need regarding Nick’s death. Their attraction grows as they get to know each other. I loved Jack and Ryan together. Ryan was very sweet and understanding about Jack’s pain, his limitations with his leg, his scars, etc.

    Overall I really liked this one. The writing was flawless, the story was unique and the sex scenes were smokin’ hot.
