A Wrench Wars Story
Best friends since they were teenagers, Ward Kent and Dean Zimmerman work together at Reggie’s garage, where the reality show Wrench Wars is filmed. Outside of work, Dean is a notorious player, and as far as he’s concerned, Ward’s the best wingman ever. Little does he know, Ward is much more interested in the gentlemen than the ladies.
Then Dean’s younger brother, Ash, comes to work at the garage. Ash may be seven years younger, but he’s had a crush on Ward for years, and he’s not shy about going after what he wants.
Admitting his best friend and his brother are gay is one thing. Seeing them together? That’s a bit more than Dean can take, and he’s about to force Ward to make a decision: lose his best friend and his job, or give up Ash forever.
So this is the 4th book in the Wrench Wars series, and this is the one with Dean being a featured character. ARUGH!!!! I wanted to repeatedly punch him in this face. I mean, it’s almost like he got more screen time then Ward and Ash. C’mon we are all consenting adults, and Ash didn’t need a damn keeper. I enjoyed it for the most part, but was irritated throughout the entire story. It was seriously nerve-wrecking to see Ward & Ash have to pretend and sneak around for the sake of Dean finding out. I mean once everything was said and done, I was left thinking on why anyone wanted to be Dean’s best friend. That’s how much this story revolved around him.
Now onto Ward & Ash. I mean it was mutually hot. I did think Ash teased Ward a little bit to much. I mean he literally came in like a wrecking ball. Any semblance of restraint that Ward had was shredded when it came to Ash. I did like how they were able to realize they both wanted something more then just a hookup. I liked Ward as a character. He had such a softer side to him, and I think Ash was perfect for him. I would love to see them spend more time with each other. I mean if we took out ALL of Dean’s parts then maybe we could have connected more to these guys. Nonetheless I enjoyed it and think Sexton did a good job on the writing.
