HELL ON WHEELS by Z.A. Maxfield
When I read the description of the book I knew that I was going to like it, and I did. It's just that I was expecting it to do something for me, and it did not. Here's why.
Nash is the reliable one in the family. The one everyone goes to keep things going. Having a genius of a twin brother, an inventor of a father and a wheel-chair bound sister, Nash does not feel special in the family.
He took it upon himself to run the family's auto-repair business, while his brother is off at university and he looks after his sister, giving his father time to invent. His life seems to be already set for the foreseeable future, no matter how much that makes him feel unfulfilled.
Spencer Kepler-Constantine is an actor on the show Wolf's Landing. He is in the middle of a very painful, very public divorce with his husband. He isn't in any position to start a relationship.
Nash meets Spencer when he was out on his bike, trying to run free before he has to go back to the responsibilities he faces in his everyday life. Spencer had some car troubles and Nash offered to help him. Things get a little steamy in the car (fast, I know). They both don't want a relationship, but they do need a friend, especially a friend with benefits.
As they get closer, so does the deadline for filming the show in Nash's home Town. Knowing that the show was coming to an end and that Spencer would be leaving soon, did not stop Nash from wishing for more. It hurts more since he got to look at his family in a new light. Now he ask himself if they need him as much as he thought? Or does he just need to feel needed?
Spencer's ex came and put the final nail in the coffin when he shows up with a big, romantic gesture, claiming that he wants Spencer back. Would Spencer go back to his husband? Would Nash finally let go and live his own life? Find out the third installment of the Bluewater Bay Series, Hell on Wheels.
