#Junkie (GearShark #1) by Cambria Hebert

junkie

#Junkie  is the first book in the GearShark series by author Cambria Hebert. This series coincides with the Hashtag series. Same characters in this series but this isn’t a traditional m/f book. This IS a GAY romance so if you have issues with that, please don’t continue reading this review or read this book only to knock it.

Amazon Description: Drew Forrester is a total adrenaline junkie.
His high of choice?
Cars.
The faster, the better.
He’s been making waves in Maryland’s underground racing circuit since he crossed the state line, and after speaking with him, we know he’s not hitting the brakes anytime soon.
So what exactly does it take to burn rubber and make a name for yourself in a world where the only rule is there are no rules?
You gotta be hungry…
You gotta have balls…
And you can never back down.
What’ve we learned here at GearShark?
Drew is all of the above.
We also know he’s got some secrets buried under his hood.
Secrets we think are loaded with octane and just might set the world of cars on fire.

I loved all the characters in the Hashtag series. I was excited when she announced she would be doing a continuation but focusing more on Drew and Trent. I have NOT been disappointed in this book.

Drew is Ivy’s brother. (Ivy is from the Hashtag series.) He lives in the house with two couples: Rimmel and Romeo and then Ivy and Braeden along with Ivy and Braeden’s daughter, Nova. He’s always felt like the fifth wheel but he loves them each nonetheless. Drew is a street car racer. He is fast and has been winning since he crossed into Maryland’s state lines.

Trent is the president of the Omega fraternity. He took over when Zack was dethroned in the Hashtag series. It’s been two years and the rep of the fraternity is finally looking up after all the hard work Trent and the other brothers have put in. There are two candidates to become the new President since this is Trent’s last year at the collage, Jack and Conner (Con). He hasn’t backed either one yet, waiting to see who deserves his support.

Trent and Drew are best friends and have been since sitting next to each other in Screamerz. They spend a lot of time together with Drew’s racing and working on his Mustang to keep it race ready. Romeo ended up getting Drew an appointment with Ron Gamble, to talk about joining his pro-racing team. Only Ron thinks that Drew is too “green” to go that route, instead wanting to start a new form of “legal” racing but with far less rules and more like the street races that Drew partakes in.

Things are going good for a while before shit hits the fan. And when I say it hits the fan, I mean it hits the fan. Things blow up between Trent and his Omega brothers and then between Trent and Drew.


I can’t wait to start reading the second book in this series. #Junkie did not disappoint me. I’m not normally into the M/M romances but since Cambria Hebert is one of my favorite authors, I thought I’d give it a go. I’m so glad I didn’t pass up on this book. It was HOT and SEXY. I don’t know how she pulled this off but she did.

I  loved this book MORE than the Hashtag series books! And that’s hard to do because I loved them! Drew and Trent’s story brings to light some issues that gay people in the world have issues with. Society is progressing and having more acceptance of gay people but I can imagine that some of the stuff in here does still happen in today’s society. Which is sad in it’s own right.

I read this book in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. I didn’t WANT to put it down.
