Blurb: David Jessman has it all. A great job, a wonderful home and wealth. What he doesn't have is a lover to share his life.

Bells is a gunwhore, a bodyguard and whore rolled into a single, neat package. He has nothing but his guns and a rather special set of skills.

When fate brings them together, neither man could have predicted the startling outcome.

Review: David Jessman is a bit naïve about the risks to his wellbeing and Bells is a gunwhore with a hidden agenda. The first installment rocks. It’s a lot to absorb and I think it’s one of those stories that is even better on the second reading because you understand more of this world and the “cyberpunk” elements.

The opening scene leads you into the story and but like a scary movie, you know danger is lurking around the corner. Your radar is going off, but when – bam!—the unexpected happens, it just intensifies everything. I felt that way while reading the story. I was entertained, I liked the set-up, but when the Bam! moment happened, I became hooked in much the same way Jessman becomes hooked on Bells and the Sweet Sisters—Pleasure and Pain.

The sex scenes in Zoner will curl your toes, leave you breathless, yet aching for more. The characters are fantastic and with each page, I was more invested in their story. This is the first book in a series and you are definitely left knowing you’ve only just scratched the surface. This is also a series that needs to be read in order or you’ll miss out on the depth of their burgeoning relationship.
