Grime and Punishment (The Brothers Grime)

The Brothers Grime: Jack - Z.A. Maxfield This book was…ok. I liked it...it was fine.Original in its background about a team of crime-scene cleaners (ewww…), the rest was fairly generic.Sweet coupling of a former firefighter, injured on the job, and a nurse, he meets via the tragic death of his high school lover (PS- the nurse is the cousin of the lover and looks just like him…not a spoiler)Throw in a closeted cop.Parents who’ve disowned their son for being gay.A few drunk dials.Some misunderstandings and angst.A quirky buddy and a cat.All in all, the book tries a little too hard, and then not hard enough. Too many distractions (see list above) and not enough detail and depth with the main storyline and couple. A few super hot smexy scenes (woot!), an endearing, budding relationship between the MC’s Jack & Ryan, and some cute banter/flirting help salvage the book as a whole. Good, not great. Entertaining enough. Quick, easy read.Fun buddy read with the crew: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1310699-buddy-read
