★ MY REVIEW ★

Let me try to sum #Junkie up in a few words. Heartwarming, the “feels”, touching… those three things all at once with a side of amazing, heartbreaking, and oh my God, can I have the next book now please. If you can’t guess from that last statement. #Junkie by Cambria Hebert is a cliffhanger. However, you won’t have to wait long if you want the second book, #Rev, because it will be out in less than a month.

Going into this book, I really wasn’t sure what to think. On one hand, I anticipated this book so much that I was scared to start it. On the other hand, I dove right into it face first. I was trying to keep an open mind about it. If you follow my blog, you know I’m a huge fan of Ms. Cambria’s Hashtag series… Drew and Trent are part of that. So I have a tremendous of love for them going into the book before it even begins. When it was first announced that it would be M/M I was shocked, for sure. I hadn’t ever seen them going that way. I figured they would both get their own book. They are Super Bros, after all. I frankly don’t think Cambria could have written this better, or in any different way. I loved these boys before, and I love them so much more now.

This is not an easy story. It’s full of so many life changing things for -both- of these characters. They have to change, and adapt. They realize things about themselves and each other. Honestly, I sat here holding my Kindle to my chest at one point just sobbing, because of the feels. This book is honest. It’s about love, regardless of who it is with and what form it is in. Our main heroes have hurdles to overcome, and a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming.

In this spin-off and new series “GearShark” it’s based around a magazine. That is why the covers look like magazine covers. You get to meet some new characters, you get to touch base with old characters that you know and love. You get to see cars that you’ll drool over even in text, and you will actually feel the adrenaline right along with the characters. Be prepared to be right on the edge of your seat and not put this book down even once.

Do you need to have read anything prior to #Junkie? Nah, it can be a standalone. Though you really might want to meander back and read the books in the Hashtag series too. I love spin-offs and this one is going on the top of my lists.

A fast-paced 5 adrenaline junkie #Trew love hearts for this one. I absolutely cannot wait for #Rev!!

MY RATING:

5 star
