Product Description

Drew Forrester is a total adrenaline junkie.
His high of choice?
Cars.
The faster, the better.
He's been making waves in Maryland's underground racing circuit since he crossed the state line, and after speaking with him, we know he's not hitting the brakes anytime soon.
So what exactly does it take to burn rubber and make a name for yourself in a world where the only rule is there are no rules?
You gotta be hungry...
You gotta have balls...
And you can never back down.
What've we learned here at GearShark?
Drew is all of the above.
We also know he's got some secrets buried under his hood.
Secrets we think are loaded with octane and just might set the world of cars on fire.

Check out the full feature article inside...


**This book contains an Male/Male romance relationship.

I love GFY novels. Specially double GFY. the story started quite slowly and if you haven't read any of the # series. Some of the story would not make sense. Saying that however. There was a bit too much drama and internal dialog for my taste. I liked the basis of this book. Just wish they could have turned it down a bit with the drama and maybe added a bit more sweet/Sexy.

I loved this book, the love Trent and Drew share is so beautiful and I think a possibly difficult subject was handled so incredibly well. #Junkie isn't so much a m/m romance as it is 2 people falling in love. I enjoyed it immensely and it is one of my favourites. I can't wait for the next one!

Another fantastic entry in this series. Cambria has been dropping hints about these two guys throughout the past few books, and it's nice to finally see them get together officially. Romance is romance and it doesn't matter what gender the people involved are, as long as it's a good story and the characters are the kind of people you relate to and want to succeed. I think the discussion of the issues for these two in admitting their love was honest, and I'll look forward to the next book.

I recently marathoned the Hashtag series, and loved that series, but #Junkie is the book I was most looking forward to. Technically #Junkie is a spin-off and so can be read without reading the Hashtag series first, and there is enough details retold (but not too many to be annoying for people who have read the other series) to be able to keep up with past events which are mentioned.

I'm a huge fan of the MM genre, and GFY (Gay For You) might well be my favourite trope within that genre. In the Hashtag books it had been hinted that Trent and Drew may be a little more than Super Bros, but we as the reader weren't ever sure because both Trent and Drew were always in the background.

#Junkie opens with a drunken Trent being looked after Drew at Drew's house (readers of the Hashtag series will recognise this as the morning that Anthony came to the house to speak to Braeden).
Trent admits some potential truths about his feelings for Drew, but then blames it on the alcohol and claims not to remember.

"Alcohol often admits things people are too afraid to say sober."

The relationship between Drew and Trent was a slow burn, with both of them individually having to come to terms with the fact that they are attracted to the other.

"I didn't want to talk to anyone right now.
Especially Drew.
I wasn't gay.
Except...maybe I was."

"There was definitely more between Trent and me than just friendship.
Way, way much more."

Because of the fact the boys are best friends, it never felt like the story dragged, there were plenty of interactions between the two, the pacing was perfect, and there were a few little moments and/or revelations leading up to the intimacy that kept the story flowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a #Junkie for Trent and Drew! 28 January 2016
By Janna - Published on Amazon.com

Reviewed for I'm A Sweet And Sassy Book Whore

I am going to first off start this review by saying if you have any reservations about reading #Junkie because it is a m/m romance well I am begging you to give it a chance, but if it isnโ€™t something that you can give a chance then please do not be negative to those who have loved this book and supported the decision that Ms. Hebert chose to take with Trent and Drewโ€™s story.

#Junkie is more than a m/m romance. It is a story about a friendship so deep that nothing could tear it apart, it is about family you make not necessarily the one you are born with, it is about trust but more importantly it is about love. This series may by a spin-off of the #Hashtag series, but I donโ€™t see it as a spin-off, I see it as a new chapter that includes all of our favorite characters but centers around a relationship that for the lack of a better description is beautiful and moving. We all want the person we love to be our best friend, so why canโ€™t we fall in love with our best friend, that one person who you can totally be yourself around without the fear of judgment, the one person who has your back during the good times and the bad, the person who would go to battle if it meant protecting you from harm, and that one person whom you share such a deep and strong connection that love is the obvious next step. Donโ€™t look at this is a relationship between two men, look at it as a relationship between two people who love each other, respect each other and understand each other.

I am in love with #Junkie and I am on the edge of my seat wondering what is going to happen next. It does end on a cliffhanger but now before you get your panties in a twist about that, we have been promised the next book will be released soon so we wonโ€™t have a huge wait. Trust me this book whore would wait a year if needed because of how much I love this author and this book. #Junkie will not only have your inner need for speed come to the surface it will show you a whole new side of Trent and Drew and the rest of the gang. This needs to be in your TBR list if it isnโ€™t already!

WOW!!!!! I am so mad!!!! How could you leave me like this?!?! I'm seriously upset. I love the story. At first I was scared to read this book, i have never read a m/m book but Cambria is one of my favorite authors so its a must read. I have loved all her book and this book is no exception. I LOVE THE BOOK!!!!! I love Trent and Drew. the love between them is beautiful. I swear this book made me cry. But why a cliffhanger!!!! I swear people were looking at me funny when I had major tantrum at the store. I started the book last nicht and finished the book this morning! Yup that good. Pulled an all nighter to finish the book today. I can honestly say it is my favorite book. I just hope the second book comes out EXTREMELY QUICKLY!

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Huge #Trew Love Stars! 21 February 2016
By Wild Heart Reviews - Published on Amazon.com

Let me try to sum #Junkie up in a few words. Heartwarming, the "feels", touching... those three things all at once with a side of amazing, heartbreaking, and oh my God, can I have the next book now please. If you can't guess from that last statement. #Junkie by Cambria Hebert is a cliffhanger. However, you won't have to wait long if you want the second book, #Rev, because it will be out in less than a month.

Going into this book, I really wasn't sure what to think. On one hand, I anticipated this book so much that I was scared to start it. On the other hand, I dove right into it face first. I was trying to keep an open mind about it. If you follow my blog, you know I'm a huge fan of Ms. Cambria's Hashtag series... Drew and Trent are part of that. So I have a tremendous of love for them going into the book before it even begins. When it was first announced that it would be M/M I was shocked, for sure. I hadn't ever seen them going that way. I figured they would both get their own book. They are Super Bros, after all. I frankly don't think Cambria could have written this better, or in any different way. I loved these boys before, and I love them so much more now.

This is not an easy story. It's full of so many life changing things for -both- of these characters. They have to change, and adapt. They realize things about themselves and each other. Honestly, I sat here holding my Kindle to my chest at one point just sobbing, because of the feels. This book is honest. It's about love, regardless of who it is with and what form it is in. Our main heroes have hurdles to overcome, and a twist at the end that I didn't see coming.

In this spin-off and new series "GearShark" it's based around a magazine. That is why the covers look like magazine covers. You get to meet some new characters, you get to touch base with old characters that you know and love. You get to see cars that you'll drool over even in text, and you will actually feel the adrenaline right along with the characters. Be prepared to be right on the edge of your seat and not put this book down even once.

Do you need to have read anything prior to #Junkie? Nah, it can be a standalone. Though you really might want to meander back and read the books in the Hashtag series too. I love spin-offs and this one is going on the top of my lists.

A fast-paced 5 adrenaline junkie #Trew love hearts for this one. I absolutely cannot wait for #Rev!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep an open mind 24 January 2016
By Snessa - Published on Amazon.com

I've been staring at this screen for awhile now trying to figure out exactly how to write this review. How to express what this book made me feel. How to put into words every emotion. How to explain the realization that this book, this story, has profoundly changed the way I look at the world. At relationships. At love.

I still haven't figured out quite how to do that but I'm going to try. So bear with me :)

I preordered this book because I loved reading the #hashtag series and any chance at a glimpse back into that world I had to take. Then I discovered that this was going to be a m/m book. I've never read a m/m book. I wasn't sure I was going to like reading about a male male relationship. Not because I have any prejudice against relationships of that type. I've always been indifferent. It hasn't affected my life so I've never really given it much thought. I'm definitely thinking now.

The way Trent struggled with his feeling for Drew. The way he didn't want to risk losing his best friend. The way he lived his life trying to conform to what society tells us is the "right" way to love. Those things all made me realize that there is no "right" love. There is no difference in the way Trent and Drew love compared to Rome and Rim or B and Ivy's love. Everyone fights their feelings. Everyone doesn't want to lose the person they are closest to. Love is love.

There will be no more indifference from me. No judgment. Just acceptance. Everyone deserves to be in a relationship where they are loved. No matter what it looks like. This book has opened my eyes to that. There is enough hate in the world already. Nobody deserves to be hated, or ridiculed, or judged, for loving. Love in whatever form it takes should be celebrated and embraced.

This book made me realize all of these things.

Never judge a book by its cover. I almost didn't read this book. That would have been a colossal mistake. My life is better for having read this book. The world is a better place for having this book in it. Even if just one persons viewpoint on love is changed it will make a difference.

I can't wait for the second book! I'm sure it will be just as great. Just as thought provoking as this one was. Saying I love this book doesn't seem to cover how I feel about this book. It was beyond amazing. 5 stars isn't enough for this book.
