    2. New review posted May 13, 2013*****Re-read and buddy read with Rosalinda, May 2013.

    3. OK, so I was SO INCREDIBLY LATE to this party, it is almost shameful. Zero at the Bone was published way, way back in 2009. If you are a M/M romance fan, like me, and haven't read this FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC novel yet What are you waiting for? I kept thinking that as I read this one: "I can't believe I am just reading this now!" And what is even more shameful? I bought this back in January of 2012! I am ridiculous. Mercenary MC "D" is a lost and lonely man. He has been denying his basic human emotio [...]

    4. "self-indulgent, overlong, and inauthentic," he snarledads like fanfic, and probably wast a total horror-show; there was tension, and that opening chapter or two was pretty good far as canonical MM reads go, i am now something like 3-for-1,093 in terms of agreeing with consensus.fuck it, fuck this book, and fuck you too.*smiles sweetly*

    5. Why doesn't this author write MORE?!?! I adored this book! Jane Seville just BLEW MY MIND!There are so many amazing reviews of this book by many of my friends. A few days have gone by since I have read this book and the characters and their chemistry are still with me. I'm having trouble organizing my thoughts so I'll just blurt out a few highlights:1) Can I just say how much I love that Jack was an oral surgeon?! As someone who really knows and understands oral surgery, I think that the author [...]

    6. This book was incredibly well written by Jane Seville and has all the ingredients for a great readtion, kidnapping, courtroom drama, car chases, shoot outs, a big dose of humour and a beautifully told romance between two very unlikely characters.5 Glorious StarsWe meet Dr. Jack Francisco in a Police interview room, still covered in the blood of a woman he saw murdered, before his very eyesMaria Dominguez. She was due to testify against her ex husband, one of the Dominguez Brothers for his part i [...]

    7. This book is something like watching an action mafia movie, only it has more personal drama and gay heroes The writing style is unusual, not like what I'm used to, so it took me a while to get over it and just read. D has some strange accent and speaks jargon all the time, so it took me a while to get used to that too lolSo the story is about Jack, the doctor with the perfect life, witnessing a murder done by the mob, and of course, after he goes to the witness list they all want him dead. D, th [...]

    8. 4.5 Stars!This book collected so much dust on my kindle shelf it's not even funny. Yeah.just call me an e this book was good. Really good. Now, I have some minor complaints. It was a bit long. 9700+ locah #lengthaversionAnd the sex was about 3 steps up from fade to black. Not descriptive and detailed at all. But damn, I loved this one anyways was quiet and moody and closed off. But when he wasn't, he was so sweet.I wish he would have talked "normal" but I got over that. Despite the length, I was [...]

    9. Written January 8, 2015Re-reading - is time listening to the 13:20 hrs audiobook narrated by Alan Smith.This was one of my first M/M romances back in May 2013 and I loved it. Soooo very much. Still loving it? YAY!! ill 5 big stars I'm glad I read it first but the audiobook was a fun way to meet these amazing lovebirds and enjoy this thrilling storyplot once again. I feel I missed a bit of D's way of funny talking here but all in all okay done by this narrator and not a boring minute.As I said to [...]

    10. Buddy reading with Melissa <3 <3The plot it was amazing!!I highly recommend this story for those who enjoy thrillers and romantic suspense while appreciating a slow build romance.Zero at the Bone is about a surgeon(Jack) whose life is in peril when he becomes a witness to a mob hitD is an assassin and he can choose and what he doesn't want to doBut this time he can't refuse,he is blackmailed into killing Jack.When D meets Jack, he really isn't able to kill the man,the innocence of the man [...]

    11. Read again for the Re-Romancing Favorites Challenge and I loved it just as much as the first time I read it.Original review from Nov 2009:Dr. Jack Francisco witnesses a murder as he leaves work one day and before he knows it his life has changed completely. Taken into protective custody and moved across country until he can testify against the killers, Jack finds himself separated from his friends, family and patients. While he is naturally upset at the situation Jack is at heart a good and hono [...]

    12. BUDDY READ WITH THE BEAUTIFUL LINDSAYThank you so much Kelly for the recommendation I LOVED LOVED LOVED it[image error]This book really surprised me as I usually go for books which are full of hot sex. YES you heard right I am shallow and love books with sex sex and more sex! But with this book something gripped me and kept me reading. Even now I'm not sure what it was? Maybe it was*The well written story*The gripping characters*The fact D and Jack overcome past issues and move forward together [...]

    13. *4.5 stars*Why did I wait so long to read this book??? Why? Feel free to tell me I 've been stupid.First of all, D is Jason Statham. He is, it's not just me, right? Seriously, look!What can I say that hasn't already been said?Very long book, but I never got bored, not for one second. Fast paced, with a surprise around every corner, this is probably the BEST romantic suspence I 've ever read.The dual POV that changed quite often worked great, and when we sometimes got the POV of some secondary ch [...]

    14. First off, I've gotta say that I love this coverrarely do I see a cover match up so exactly with what I have in my head but this D and Jack is perfectdy language and all. D is sort of badass and standoffish, Jack is a bit more boyish and nervous. I love it!!!This is a story about a hit man, D, and and his mark, Jack. You'd think that no excuse is good enough to convince you that a man who kills other people for a living could be a good person, but D can change your mind. He's not ALL good. He st [...]

    15. Warning: I’m not going to make friends with this review. In fact: I might lose some, ha! But Zero at the Bone -practically considered a classic in the m/m genre- didn't do it for me. Most I can make of it is: ‘meh’, which translates to 2,5 stars. It started out well: I really liked the premise of the story, I liked the fact that Jack held his own despite being helpless in the situation and I was intrigued by the dark and brooding D. I loved D's internal monologue about his vault, in which [...]

    16. This story was amazing! Absolutely, positively OMG I actually hugged my ereader after AMAZING!!! And I actually considered staring over immediately and reading it again! (yes, I think I may have some obsessive compulsive issues as well)This was about Jack a maxillofacial surgeon who works at Johns Hopkins In Baltimore, MD (which is quite cool for me because i actually have one, and he works at Johns Hopkins). Leaving work one day he witnesses a woman getting murdered, he hides so no one sees him [...]

    17. I love it when authors do a ' mix up ' and veer away from the expected. Jane Seville takes an anti hero assassin like D and pairs him with ' Mr normal ' Jack who is in the wrong place at the wrong time and weaves one of the best gay fiction stories around them that I think I will ever read. This book has everything - a proper gutsy, gritty crime backstory that never loses pace or excitement ( edge of the seat stuff ) and one of the best m/ m romances in the genre that starts slowly and ends up p [...]

    18. Maybe it's that I'm getting more demanding or impatient, or no longer feel the need to suffer through books that aren't holding my interest, but at 35% I just gave up. I had high hopes for this one. There were lots of great reviews and I really liked the premise, but the actual delivery fell short.Jack, a surgeon, witnesses a murder and agrees to testify. He's taken into protective custody. D, an assassin, takes the job to take him out. Everything was going well, right up until the moment these [...]

    19. This was great. I dip into M/M now and again. It is not my usual reading genre. Loved this one. Really good story - kept me guessing all the time. Jack was great but D. was yummy. Only complaint was they way he talked - just got on my nerves a bit but eventually got used to it. Good sex - not too much for me. Plot was great - lovely to see the way D. opened up to Jack and you could really feel how in love they were. The author has a few more short stories on her webpage which were set after this [...]

    20. I love this book, it had everything, action, romance, suspense and humor, I absolutely loved Jack and D, wow the chemistry between them jumped out at you from each page, they clicked beautifully. The continuous banter was hilarious and the suspense scenes had me on the edge of my seat, intense and gripping. Emotionally its lovely when D opened his heart to love, slowly coming in from the cold. I couldn't put it down, its that good, a thrilling and wonderful story. Jack and D are fabulous guys, I [...]

    21. My impression reading this book?It's like watch a very good action movie!!!Jack He is a very talented surgeon in the witness protection program. He saw a murder, and have no choice he must testify against one of the most powerful and danger criminal organization.D (yeah, a letter his name you will know only after a while) He is a hit man. Incredible cliché (sorry) but the better way to describe him is: a assassin with conscience. He pick his jobs, and use his "god/evil" judgment to decide who m [...]

    22. Wow! Umjust, WOWThis book has everything in it: mystery and intrigue, romance and great sexual tension, action and suspense. And lots of sex! D, a big, bad ass hit man being forced to kill Jack, state's witness and former practicing doctor. Well, things don't exactly turn out as planned. In the beginning, I immediately loved Jack because he reminded me a lot of myself. Especially when he had to nurse D back to health and how he always asking D a bunch of questions. D would have went ahead and ki [...]

    23. DNF at 24%I am sorry but I couldn't finish this one. Normally I give a book that I couldn't finish only one star. And write at least a small explanation WHY I didn't like a book.But can I rate a book if I've read less than 30%?Do I need then to explain WHY I don't like it?I didn't care about the plot. I didn't care about the main characters.I didn't care even if it would be dry or with lubricant. Or when and how. Did I answer your question?This book and me just don't have chemistry.Read Adam's r [...]

    24. Oh Jack and D, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…♥ I loved that D thought he didn’t have the capability to express himself with the right words yet his were some of the most beautiful I have ever read. For example:"Jus' sit on the side a the bed, okay? Maybe pull up a chair? Don't gotta say nothin' or do nothing. Jus' please don't let go a me."My heart just about broke when I read that!And then this!:“…and he felt the solid lock of their pieces fitting together again, his whole [...]

    25. I keep debating with myself but WTF I'm putting this at 5* and leaving it there :pIt was among the first m/m stories I read and it has flaws but I enjoyed it, gruff D with his weird accent and clever innocent Jack. A big bad killer with a heart, the man who saves him while being saved. A touch ridiculous but so what. I like the contrast of characters, the different strengths and how they come together.It's a PTP for Brokeback (which I've not watched (life is to short for shitty endings) but such [...]

    26. This book has a great premise and based on the raving reviews I'd read, I was sure it would be a sure winner. Well, I'm sorry to say that I failed to see what all the fuss was aboutDr. Jack Francisco has the misfortune of witnessing a mob murder and has his life turned upside down. These particular mob murderers have been escaping the law for years and they've managed to be acquitted from every crime charged against them, as witnesses of those "alleged" crimes always disappear mysteriously befor [...]

    27. 4+! As a romantic suspense story, this was really good. In fact, the formula of this story reminded me a lot of a good Christy Reece romance suspense (a fav author of mine), except with a m/m spin. (She often pairs a dark shady hero with a good heroine above reproach, faces them off against multiple possible bad guys, and then protects them with a super-secret agency of professional good-guys with endless resources at their fingertips). Zero at the Bone was an intense romance suspense with the m [...]

    28. But never met this FellowAttended or aloneWithout a tighter BreathingAnd zero at the bone.—Emily DickinsonThis Fellow, either the hit man or the doctor. Either attended, looked after and taken care of, or alone through self-imposed darkness and ruthless exterior. No reason without a tighter Breathing since the potency of fear catches one's breath. And in one moment you could be left with nothing but a cold void shot through the core of the bone.D got up and paced. It was pointless, but at leas [...]

    29. I LOVED IT!!***4.5 STARS***Dr. Jack Francisco has just witnessed the murder of a woman, Maria Dominguez, in a parking lot as he was walking to his car. Now, Jack finds himself in WITSEC and having to testify against the men he saw commit the crime. D is a hit man and being blackmailed into killing a witness. He shows up at Jack's house ready to do the deed, but he couldn't do it. He couldn't take an innocent life away for doing nothing wrong. So now, D is determined to protect him from whoever w [...]
