Product Description

Fleeing the questions and horrific memories in Miami-Dade, Trevor Garrett accepts a deputy position in the small town of Rolling Fork, Mississippi. Plagued by anxiety attacks and an abhorrence to being touched, Trevor rebuffs his best friend’s attempts to set him up. He has no desire for any type of relationship; until the local golden boy strolls into his line of sight at the neighborhood dive…

Logan Andrews just wants to take care of his mama. After years of serving his country in the Army Special Forces, Logan resigns when he learns his mother is suffering from advanced stages of Alzheimer’s disease. A night out with old friends turns heated when the newest deputy in town catches his attention…

When a sexually deviant killer sets his sights on the gay men in the area, Trevor is assigned the case. In a wicked twist, all evidence points to Logan. Can Trevor’s past be repeating itself? In a race against a killer, Trevor struggles to overcome his own insecurities and clear the man whose touch sets him on fire. Will he succeed or will their budding relationship become Collateral Damage?

5.0 out of 5 stars J.T. Cheyanne totally rocked it from start to finish. 1 June 2016
By LisK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was given an ARC of this book in order to provide a review, and all I can say is WOW! The opening chapter HOOKED me right away.Trevor Garrett is a big city cop relocated to small town Mississippi in a desperate attempt to escape the ghosts of his past, a past that leaves him fearful of being touched both physically and emotionally. He’s the new detective on the Rolling Fork police force, an outsider who’s trying to fit in but lay low at the same time so he can wrestle his demons and forget about his past in his own way. Logan Andrews is the hometown favorite son, as Trevor calls him. He’s come back to Rolling Fork to take care of his mother Stella, who’s suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Neither man is looking for anything more than a simple life: Trevor to do his job, Logan to take care of mom and the farm. Neither wants a relationship of any kind, for both have loved and lost to the extreme.

Yet in a small town dive bar, they see each other and like moths to the flame the attraction is full of heat, consequences be damned. Trevor’s aversion to being touched has no bearing where Logan is concerned; in fact, the army hero’s touch soothes and calms him in ways that nothing else can. Logan doesn’t think he’ll ever find true love after the loss of the man he tried to save so long ago yet he wants Trevor with a yearning so strong he’s willing to finally reveal his secret of being gay to the folks back home. But when the first murder victim is discovered, the fledgling romance is tested to the breaking point.

So much is at stake in this book: new love, trust issues, being gay in small town Mississippi, doing one’s job, battling nightmares, and ultimately overcoming all these things to discover what lies beneath the surface. In this book, love takes many forms: sexual discovery, hero worship, family ties, what’s expected, what’s frowned upon, the need to belong, and the need to be free. Both men know their responsibilities, but it’s the what-ifs that plague them and mold them into the men we first meet. When the murders start, Trevor must dig through the circumstantial evidence to find the killer. Both men come face to face with their pasts, and by doing so discover the meaning of true love, the kind of love that forgives the past and fights to forge a new connection so strong that nothing and no one will stand in its way.

Trevor and Logan’s chemistry is immediate and explosive. They are meant to be together yet are tested time and time again. Their story is full of heartbreak and hope, and thanks to an incredible cast of secondary characters, we learn so much about our heroes through the eyes of others. Logan’s mom is a true Southern lady, soft and sweet as the tea she serves, yet with a protective streak a mile wide that even her illness cannot diminish. Logan is blessed with friends who have to be the coolest couple in male/male literature. Carson and Dante stand by him through the ups and downs and I would love to know their back-story some day. Trevor’s former college roommate Noah and his beau Ashton only want the best for their struggling friend. Noah tries so hard and suffers for his efforts, yet proves to be the catalyst to figuring out the mystery. And the killer… well, let’s just say the author shows us good and evil all wrapped up in one tragic twist of fate.

This book shocked me, comforted me, made me laugh out loud and cry like a baby. I loved both men equally, loved how their story tugged at my heart and kept me on the edge of my seat. I will never forget Trevor’s vulnerability, or Logan’s swaggering confidence. Trevor the cop was exactly what he needed to be to match Logan’s Special Forces hero. Together they discovered the missing link, the love that was the only thing to prevent them both from becoming Collateral Damage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Soapy 3 June 2016
By Gigi - Published on Amazon.com

There is really only one way to describe the twists and turns that happen in Collateral Damage: Soap Opera.

While that style of storytelling can we a huge amount of fun, it just wasn't here.

OK, it's gonna be a gory one. Got it. I can handle gore, in smallish doses and to further the story line. I wasn't offended my the violence here. It's a book about a cop trying to find a murderer. The blurb states that quite clearly. So, it's all good.

What the blurb doesn't tell you is that when Logan and Trevor (totally Soap Opera names, right?) meet, we get a sudden case of insta-love. Both men are deliciously broken (I love that!) and find solace in each others touch. In Trevor's case, literally. He can't stand to be touched, but for some reason, Logan's touch centers and relaxes him. Good for us because then the hot sex starts.

Right when we're getting to the good parts, the murder "mystery" starts. (Not so much of a mystery because I guessed it at about 35%.) But that's where the twists began. In my wildest dreams, I couldn't have been prepared for the surprises that Ms. Cheyanne's threw at me.

It was hard to keep everything straight! Who was who? Who was dead? When did that happen? Why did he do that?

Frankly? It got a little ridiculous. OK, a lot ridiculous.

But I'm not going to tell you not to read this book. I think you should read this book! It has hot sex, hurt/healing/comfort, serious drama and a huge helping of angst. Just be prepared for insta-love, triggers for violence, stuff that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but a fun ride regardless.

Oh, and I honestly am not one to nit-pick about editing mistakes, but this book has got a LOT of them. Enough for me to mention, because I normally wouldn't. The most frustrating was when the author confused the character's names. It threw me right out of the story and I had to go back and re-read to see what I missed. That happened more than once. A beta reader/editor was sorely missed here.

If you decide to read this one, make sure you buckle your seat belt. You're gonna get thrown around quite a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!!! 4 June 2016
By Kim T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loved it that's all I can say. There has never been a J.T Cheyanne book that I didn't or haven't like and this one is no exception. It sucked me in right from the beginning, like a tornado to a trailer park. Murder, mystery and romance. Who could ask for more? I loved Trevor and Logan. Their chemistry was off the charts and I felt they would each do what they could to protect each other. I could not stop reading this book till I got to the end and even then end had me going OH MY GOD!

J.T had a way with words and I find that even her side characters draw me in. Like Logans friend Carson. I really really really would love to know more about him and what makes him tick and would probably do the happy dance of joy if there was ever a little novella about him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great hit by my favorite author JT Cheyanne! 21 June 2016
By tee - Published on Amazon.com

You take your life in your hands when you try to read one of my reviews. I only write for my very
favorite authors like JT. I have to keep it very simple because if not somewhere I will expose part
of the story you are not suppose to. Since I am not a writer it thrills me to read a story like "Collateral
Damage" from an author that puts most of the others to shame. Logan and Trevor's story leaves you
breathless from page one through the very last page. JT has a way of not just making you fall in love
with the main characters but fleshes out the supporting cast and proudly pins them to your heart!

This author is on a plane of her own and I always feel like I've received a great gift when I am privileged
to read one of her books. I give this book TEN stars and hope you read Collateral Damage as
well as all of her other books. Big hugs, Mary

First time reading this author and I have to say I was very glad I bought this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I could not put this book down. I stayed up till the wee hours of the night reading. I loved every minute of this book and would highly recommend to anyone. I wanted the story to continue it was that good. I took a chance and got everything I expected and more. I wish I could give more stars.
