Publisher's Summary

I don’t want Jason Vega. Not at all. It’s the worst idea ever. Ah, hell...

Jason is handsome. Smart. Dangerous. Hot. He’s goddamn gorgeous - but he’s also sleeping on the street, hanging out with the local biker gang, and selling his body for a living.

Our lives, our paths, couldn’t be further apart. I’m crawling toward the light while he’s falling into the dark.

But it doesn’t matter how different we are or what logic dictates.

I really shouldn’t want Jason Vega - but I just can’t stop.

He’s under my skin and sinking deeper....

Trigger warning: violence and sexual abuse. This is a M/M (gay) romance that tells the story of Jason and Raine, who appeared in the Damage Control series. It is super hot and angsty and violent but with a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

What a ride

Jagged edge blew me away 🌪. This was my first book by jo raven, and won’t be my last. This book is not your sugary sweet romance. It’s rough, raw and some parts were hard to listen to, but it is a romance and it does have a happy ending.

Almost returned this...but....

Jo, once you got going, you caught me. The character development was strained for me for a little while, and I honestly came close a few times in the first half on giving up, but when I was just about to call it quits, you intrigued me with "something". Glad I stuck it out. It's a powerful story in so many ways. And overall, it is a memorable read.

Teddy/Iggy, good job.

Listener, try this book, and hang in there with the characters. It is not for the squeamish or faint of heart, some of the subject matter is really intense, and yes, I mean really intense, but it was well worth the push thru to the last half...well worth it.

Teddy broke my heart

This is no rom/com romance. It is a street, dirty, gritty M/M romance.

Jason has been a prostitute for many years, he could get out, but he doesn't so he can protect those younger than him in this life. He's repeatedly robbed, beaten, degraded. It's just all in a days work for him, hungry cold and dirty is how he ends his nights.

Rainne Storm is an old friend, or frienemy? Well they didn't get along well even though they had a mutual attraction.

Jason has secrets - he won't tell those around him who do try to help him. He fears for the safety of everyone he loves.

Over and Over, Rainne reaches out to Jason, to protect him, to love him. Jason pulls away, because he feels he has to, but he doesn't want to.

When they each allow the other to love them, it's beautiful. This was a very emotional ride, the narrators, Iggy Toma, and Teddy Hamilton did such a wonderful job. Teddy especially pulled my heart along with his.

Highly Recommended

For myself, the test of a compelling book is if It leaves me wanting to know the characters in real life. Very few stories do. However this book does. Raven does a terrific job making each character splendidly clear. This of course is complimented with the excellent narration. It’s as if the writing of the main characters let us glimpse inside their thoughts. Well done.

Perfection

This book had everything... my two favorite narrators and an incredible story that gripped me from the beginning and held me captive until I listened to the very last line. What an incredible ride! Great character development, edge of your seat tension, scenes that had me waiting with baited breath to see what would happen next, beautiful male leads with tragic backgrounds. Throw in a great supporting cast of characters, fabulous sexy scenes with emotional tenderness, exciting plot, characters you'll love and care for AND a happy ending!!! Put this on the top of your list! This is one of my all time favorites.

So so...

I loved Jo Raven’s Candy Boys for the story, writing style, and phenomenal performance. The narrators here did a great job as well, but the story was so angst-filled that I was tempted to skip forward. It became annoyingly redundant - a perpetual “boy (sorta) gets boy; boy loses boy.” It needed a good editor. Unlike the sex scenes in Candy Boys, the sex scenes in JE were uninspired. Overall, it felt a bit forced.

Too much! r

Listen, I ready Jo Raven's Candy Boys and just LOVED it. I was aware that there is a dark side in that story that was somewhat of an extremes but I was totally willing to suspend belief for the sake of the story. But THIS book ?! Good Lord. There were just too many extremities . TOO much violence for what appears to be just for the he!! of it? Maybe I’m too used to sweet love stories but holy cow this book..
PLUS the hot sexiness' was kind of overshadowed by could be construed as Raine's semi-erotic reactions to Jason's plight and pain? Then there's just teh whole back & forth, back and forth of it all.

The only reason I continued past chapter 9 or 10 was because the narrators are BANGIN" but even that couldn't hold me in .... and that is saying something because I always thought I could listen to Teddy Hamilton read the phone book .. but here I was thinking "omg Teddy shut up with the whining and the negativity already"

The author could have saved the book by building a more solid stable , normal-ish relationship between the two MC's and by letting a little time pass but instead she just kept piling on more and more .

It could have been pretty good but its not. I can only assume that the 4 & 5 star reviews are because some people think that a high anxiety, high tragedy book that has a happy ending means it was a good book?

Lots of Angst

This is my first book by this author (audio or otherwise).

It's a m/m romance about two broken boys - Jason (a hooker) and Raine (the younger brother of a character - Ocean - from a previous book). Both guys have endured horrific childhoods but have chosen to deal with the pain differently.

I liked both characters however, the amount of inner dialog just about drove me crazy.

The sex is smokin' hot (have a fan near you).

Having two narrators worked okay here - would have been okay with just one too.

Did not finish

I liked the well written characters, narration and how the story pulled my heartstrings. But I had to suspend too much disbelieve to focus on the story.

Great story! Amazing performance!

I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. I love it so much, it quickly became one of my favorite MM romances. Right up there with HIM and the Psycop series! Iggy Toma has secured his place in my top 5 narrators! I can not recommend this enough!
