Ya like that better? Ammo is good. D looked at her. You'd deny a hardworking girl a little eye candy? Gimme them glasses. My ass ain't no pincushion. Ain't that a condom? What the hell you plannin', doc? Condoms are sometimes called 'prophylactics" because they're a preventive measure against insemination.
It comes from the poem Snake by Emily Dickinson. Besides, the fact that Jack is a maxillofacial surgeon could also be related to the title.
Jack specializes in facial reconstructive surgery. Plus, Jack is incredibly fascinated by D's architectural skull and his bone structure. Jack shifted a little closer on the couch and spoke softly. The young soldier, the hopeful family man, hide spoiler ] and it damned near broke his heart to see that man buried so deeply within the man D was now, a man he clearly detested but could not escape.
His eyes were wide and shining. He just persisted, touching D where he'd like to be touched, caressing the tension from his muscles, urging him on with his hands, trying to tell him with his body it's okay, it's okay to want me, it's okay to feel it, it's safe to show it.
D was pouring himself into Jack's arms, his body, and the deluge was fierce; Jack clung to him like a barnacle, holding him fast in his arms. I've got you. The thought ran over and over in his mind as D heaved great swoops of breath past Jack's ear, swoops that had sobs caught at their dregs, as if he'd found something old and unexpressed at the very tidal bottom of his lungs now dragged into the open air by the exertion.
I'm not letting go of you. D's features tugged inward, like he'd just remembered something. Jack didn't move. D blinked a few times, and then slowly leaned closer, lowering his face toward the crook of Jack's shoulder. Brow furrowed, he inhaled.
Jack saw his eyes flutter closed and his features smooth out as if he were falling asleep right where he stood, falling into a daydream or a memory. D's voice was raw, like a man under hypnosis.
That toasty-skin smell, like ya get after goin' ta the beach? Take your time. Not ever. Not now. Two tears spilled over his lids and slid down his cheek. Jack wiped them away with his thumbs and leaned forward until their foreheads were pressed together.
He could hear D's ragged breathing; he felt another solitary tear drip onto his leg. How long had it been since this man had allowed himself an emotional release? How far could he really expect him to come back in one night? Hot damn! I forgot how fabulous this book is! Zero features fantastic MCs and an interesting cast of secondary characters.
There sure was not one single dull moment to be found. Zero is an intense and wonderful love story. Honestly, the writing is excellent and some paragraphs are stunningly beautiful. Behind all the harshness and violence of the plot as well as D's character, something incredibly intimate and tender is hidden and needs to be unraveled.
The build-up is rather slow yet beautifully done and the story provides many, many memorable scenes between D and Jack. I marvel at the beauty of anything and everything that Zero provides. I truly loved it! In fact, it was even better the second time around. More often than not I get annoyed by too much narrative and inner monologue.
In fact, the man was standing at a personal crossroads and wanted to seek redemption eventually. Also, Zero lives and breathes intimacy, and I truly adored the moments of utter stillness and tenderness. On the other hand, however, the lovely, tender and vulnerable moments went hand in hand with frantic lovemaking that was truly stunning. Besides, I was privy to the privilege of witnessing D coming completely and utterly undone and Jack was right there to hold him.
For the last ten years D acted like a machine, he did avoid any emotional attachment to every human being. And then slowly yet steadily D is flooded by so many confusing emotions and a never ending yearning for Jack. A yearning that hurt in its intensity, and yet it helped to keep the tension between these two very palpable.
As a matter of fact, the sexual tension between Jack and D is extremely well done. Not every author is able to convey the physical attraction through words in such a powerful way like Jane Seville did in this story. I felt like all of their feelings leapt right off the pages and into my heart, and I treasured those moments immensely. D and Jack are perfect together, but I believe that D totally made this story.
I loved his character to pieces, and his accent endeared him even more to me. Now that inner monologue made me cry. Jus hold me a little longer, Jack. Tell me again that ya wanna be with me, fer real, cross yer heart 'n' let me know you ain't foolin' cause I dunno how or when it happen but somehow I come ta need ya like air, like blood.
Touch me again like ya do with them gentle hands make me feel like somethin' precious. Say it again that ya love me, cause hearin' that was like openin' up some big bottomless well that ran dry years back and it cain't never hear it enough, but once more, one more time and maybe I'll believe it a little more, and then a little more the next time, till someday I believe it fer true enough ta be able to say it back ta you like y'oughta hear it said cause God knows I love you more'n my own life, more'n anythin' in this world, but it cain't get outta me yet cause I still ain't the man I need ta be, the man who's gonna stand before you and declare.

I kept thinking that as I read this one: I bought this back in January of !
I am ridiculous. Mercenary MC "D" is a lost and lonely man. He has been denying his basic human emotions for 10 years, putting them in a "vault" that is locked up tight, and no one has the key. His most recent target , MC Dr. Jack Francisco, who's only crime was being at the wrong place at the wrong time, barrels into his life, picking away at the lock on D's vault.
A hit man and a surgeon? Blew me away! The way Jane Seville actually pulled off a plausible way for these men to be attracted to each other was impressive enough. But to give them the rainbows and bird's singing HEA they eventually got? Enough of my praise-vomit. If you haven't read this one yet, give yourself a nice block of time and start.
This one does NOT disappoint. View all 17 comments. Aug 24, Julio Genao rated it did not like it. Why doesn't this author write MORE?!?! I adored this book! There are so many amazing reviews of this book by many of my Goodreads 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: As someone who really knows and understands oral surgery, I think that the author did a kick butt job of accurately describing the profession and the training involved.
I felt like I connected with the character based on this alone though I know I'm crazy biased. I automatically loved him because he was a dentist- I couldn't help myself!
I loved how you really got to see him fall apart and let Jack in, emotionally. It was beautiful to read. She describes things so gorgeously and skillfully that I really felt like I was there with the guys, going through the action with them. I loved her style and it really enhanced my reading experience. What would I have improved? I didn't love the epilogue and I think some of the sex scenes could have really used more description like about pages of excruciating detail!! I also wanted more character description: I couldn't picture the two MCs well at all.
I didn't even know that D had light hair until the end of the book. However, the positives far outweigh the negatives here. Amazing book Ms. View all 45 comments. Feb 28, Monique rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book was incredibly well written by Jane Seville and has all the ingredients for a great read Jack Francisco in a Police interview room, still covered in the blood of a woman he saw murdered, before his very eyes Maria Dominguez.
She was due to testify against her ex husband, one of the Dominguez Brothers fo This book was incredibly well written by Jane Seville and has all the ingredients for a great read She was due to testify against her ex husband, one of the Dominguez Brothers for his part in the Brothers illegal drug trade operation.
In this underworld of crime Jack was scared Sitting in a room with faceless, suited men, bombarding him with questions, repeating the same answers over and over again, he is confused and bewildered.
He is about to be whisked away into witness protection Checked out of his previous life as a top surgeon which he had trained for and worked hard to achieve. All his dreams and future life would be gone He has witnessed a crime and with all his well meant notions of good verses evil, he was prepared to stand up for what was right and testify and so far, HE, was still alive D is an assassin, a hired cold blooded killer.
He has no past.
He has no name. He has no life. He is like a machine and performs like a robot, without feeling or concern. He gets a hit, does the hit, moves on So when his handler asks him to take the hit on Jack and he refuses So our two MC's meet.
Jack, in witness protection, on a never ending loop of boredom filled with mind numbing nothing-ness, goes hiking to relieve the tedium, try to exhaust himself to escape the futility of it all.
Arriving home he finds a man, sitting in a chair in the shadows heart was pounding at this point, all kinds of "Oh No" and expletives, entering my head. When he, cool as you like, stands slowly all quiet menace and deadly intent, lanky frame, shorn hair, stubble and sunglasses!
OK at this point I was drooling and open mouthed in anticipation Jack knows he is going to die and surprisingly embraces it, as he no longer has to live in fear of it So, OK, we know he does't go through with it, as that would be the end of the story!! Jack is fascinated by D and his analytical brain wanted answers, he wanted to know what was beneath that steely resolve.
He should be afraid and in a way he was. But he had seen that small display of emotion from the man that had been hired to kill him, with his indecision when faced with the kill shot.
So stilted and unemotional was D that Jack started referring to him as Hal Space Odyssey computer in his mind. In fact Jack did a lot of talking to himself, arguing with himself, his inner monologue and musings were hilarious, and it was fun to watch his constant indecision.
As we see more of D we are let inside the complex gates and barriers he hides behind. He has a heart and Jack is slowly wearing those defences down, he can see beyond this persona that D has created and he doesn't see the coldness and the cruelty Only D cannot see past the darkness and is unable to remember what life was like without it, he wants to protect Jack from it, he wants him to remain the kind, funny innocent man that he is.
The relationship evolves amongst all the madness and it is both beautiful and tender in all its complexities. It is fragile and tentative as D lets Jack in, past the barriers, to see the tragedy and hurt that have framed this man into "D" he slowly crawls out of the darkness and is desperate to keep hold of the man that trusts him and has opened his heart to what life can truly be like. I loved this book, the voices of the two MC's are so distinct, their personalities were intense and so real, I could see them and hear them in my minds eye.
I did struggle however with D's accent for the first few pages, unable to decipher it, but when I got the southern drawl, that was all 'D' their voices were perfect and I was on a roll. Which brings me to my only gripe with regard to Zero. When I read I like to have an image and voice to go with the character, this is usually provided by the author with snippets of information at the beginning to help us build a picture of this person of persons in our mind.
Even though we are given a full description of D's look, all drool-worthy and lusciousness that he is, the same is not true of Jack. We learn early on he has blue eyes.. Later on towards the end we finally learn he has dark hair Which also goes for the accent, which was OK for me but I know a few people have has issue with, if it was pointed out that D was a southern boy, it would all have been good.
There are some sex scenes in this book and the build up to them was amazing, all tummy flutters and anticipation, only to fall flat on the deed. My original theory, was that as the barriers were broken down, it would improve and it did slightly, but it was still all fired up to only deliver a sizzle.
Having said that, this book is more about the emotional connection that develops over time, rather than the sex and that was all fine with me, even though I am sure a few of my pervy friends would say otherwise!!
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 lol So 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, t 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, the mysterious contract killer, is blackmailed into taking the hit to Jack.
Although he's a killer, he can't bring himself to kill an innocent man, so he and Jack are forced to run together because they are both targets now. I felt really bad for him, and then I loved him so much seeing how he gradually fell in love with Jack, and what he was willing to do to keep him alive and assure he had his perfect life back: I'll have to get these short stories View all 37 comments.
This book collected so much dust on my kindle shelf it's not even funny. Really good. Now, I have some minor complaints. It was a bit long. Not descriptive and detailed at all. But damn, I loved this one anyways. D 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 never bored. There were plenty of edge of your seat moments. But the pace was slow, slower than I prefer The story was great. The characters were great. I think a "sequel" has been in the works? Is still in the works? I don't know But I would definitely read more from this author. View all 53 comments. Written January 8, Re-reading Soooo very much. Still loving it? 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.
A Written January 8, Re-reading As I said to a friend: I first read Zero at the Bone , Jane Seville 's only, but amazing enjoying, suspense romance May, I dare not read what I wrote then but I guess it still applies. A hitman known as just "D" becomes forced a contract to kill the blueeyed doctor. According to D's own code of whom he takes elimination contracts on, he instead, takes Jack on a run.
D sees as his task to ensure that Jack will be able to testify in the trial. An action loaded escape begins It's just weird that you, you know But o'boy how wrong I was. I had instead received a grand, tenderly told, love story about two very different men.
Two men from completely different worlds, with different backgrounds, experiences and life situations. Jack is easygoing , think well of others and cares about right and wrong. He is successful at work but a little lonely. Setting up as a witness against the Mafia, he wants to do it, although it will change his whole future and life.
D however, has lived in the shadows for so long that he doesn't allow himself any feelings or kind of normal life anymore. He is one of the best in his field, but have since long lost every hope for himself.
He has no friends or any human contact with others outside the "job". What's so nice is that Jack immediately rely on D - D is his lifeline and savior against the danger.
The story tells us step by step, how the this two approaches and find one another. They are both strong and emotional men, but find it really hard and difficult to dress their feelings in words for starts.
It leave actions and gestures to show the way. And it does, they are both willing to risk everthing for each other. These guys are two wonderful and easily loved characters. Two so different characters, but they are now both deep inside my book-boy-heart for a very long time. There is so much happening in this story and I will not even try to share a single percent of everything. You just read it! To say, however, is that this is a book about two men who find their true love.
It's about their hardships to achieve the new love and in the background is a really exciting action-story going on. You get some nail bits scenes and a thrilling persistent anxiety until the end. The death threats are there all the time and I wondered nervously how it could work out and be a wonderful HEA at the end. Any heat and steam? Yes, described in the finest way, tenderly and lovingly. An added plus for the superb finish with a long and glorious epilogue. Among the better ones I've read in a long time.
It provides, as this novel in general, a lull in the narration of the events. I could feel each scene, know what D and Jack felt and had time to enjoy the wonderful sweet dialogue. Did I mention D's dialect? Lying on their sides, face to face, just staring at each other for what felt like hours, drifting off and waking again. D sighed, tucked his hand underneath his head. Never had no house a my own. View all 65 comments. 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 hit.. D is an assassin and he can choose and what he doesn't want to do.. But 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 is clear in his eyes and D is tired to let people die due to an event that isn't their fault.
So they go on the run and are forced to work together to keep unknown forces from killing them both. Not knowing who to trust or where to turn except to each other The relationship between Jack and D is intense and emotional. The last fact makes for amusing moments when he finally admits his attraction to D and what will happen from there on. His devotion to D!! He starting worries over why he allowed himself and D to develop a relationship. D is yummy with a sexy accent assasin!! His blunt nature especially with Jack is a great set up for laughs and smiles.
I apreciate how layered he was!! D turns from enemy to protector and he appoints himself the only protector of Jack Setting up home,loving and caring for each other and having a happy life together. For more reviews you can check mine and Kristinas's blog. D my link text View all 51 comments.
