18% Gray

18% Gray18% Gray by Anne Tenino

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really didn’t expect to enjoy this story as much as I did. I kept seeing it and would pass it by when I read the information on it. Then I saw a review from a friend here on Goodreads who rated it 5 stars.
It was then I considered maybe I should take a look at it again.
I still figured I wouldn’t enjoy it as one it is a futuristic book and the other is I am Canadian and reading about USA being separated and fighting wasn’t something I thought I would enjoy in a m/m romance story.
But in saying that I was really shocked at how much I enjoyed the book, it kept me interested and I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I liked both characters the sex scenes were hot, the story was comical at times and made me laugh out loud.
It is a well written book and the way the author wrote the book to be funny, cleaver and a bit over the top at times it was a great read. It was not to confusing for a futuristic novel, I am hoping for a sequel.

In a future where the United States has split along party lines, Agent Matt Tennimore's job is to get people out of the Confederated Red States, whether they're captured special ops agents from his own country or gay CRS citizens who've petitioned for asylum. He never expected to have to retrieve his high school crush, aka the guy who ostracized him for being gay.
Rescuing James Ayala isn't going to be easy: he's crawling with tracking nanos and has a cybernetic brain implant that's granted him psychic power he isn't sure how to control. That's the good news. The bad? The implant is compromising James's mental stability.

So they're on the run, avoiding surveillance by AI aircraft and hiding from enemy militia. Then James confesses he tormented Matt in high school because James wanted him. Matt can't resist the temptation James offers, but he wants so much more than sex, assuming they ever make it home alive. Is James really a good bet when he's got a ticking time bomb in his brain and there's the question of how much he's actually changed?
