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.

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.

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.

Strong performance couldn’t save this

The Teddy/Iggy team of readers were great, but such repetitious unimaginative writing and a totally predictable plot overcame their talent. Really, gays should demand better than this c**p.

I Wanted More... Something

I believe this is a first for me by this author. I don’t really know what I was expecting, this cover is what jumped out at me and I had to listen.

I liked the characters and their connection, but it kind of felt one-sided for the most part. Jason really goes through the wringer in this story and I sometimes didn’t think Raine understood the situation Jason was in. I wanted him to care more for this man he was lusting after.

I think this book could have been freaking great but it was just too slow, and I wanted more magnetize between these characters I wanted to feel their lust and romantic need for each other. I just didn’t feel it.

It wasn’t terrible or anything I guess I just wanted more.

I loved the narration Teddy’s voice is YUM. Is that a descriptive word, haha NO but I don’t care it is what it is.

Iggy Toma

Sounds like an old man with a potato in his mouth and nearly ruined the entire book for me. Stuck it out for Teddy Hamilton’s narration and the interesting plot.

Struggled to finish :(

If it wasn't for Teddy Hamilton's voice I could not have hung in to the end. What could have been an amazingly poignant story had so many things wrong with it I was hugely disappointed. Raine was supposed to care so much for Jason but through most of the story he brings a freezing hungry injured Jason to his house and is immediately having sex with him. It disgusted me. The first half especially. like one reviewer said it did get better toward the end, but for me, the author didn't redeem herself.

one of my favorites!

I LOVED the relationship between Jason and Rain. Their chemistry was so equally hot and frustrating. Jason's story is quite sad as it revolves around abuse and self degradation. I really liked how the plot wasn't just like hey here comes a guy who immediately helps a "lad in distress". Their relationship, or lack thereof, is a lot of one step forward, three steps back. Both men have their own issues and have to work to help themselves and each other.
