This title was provided free by the author or publisher for review purposes Review originally posted at Brief Encounters ReviewsRating BAlthough this story is a seuel to the delightful Chainbreaker which I reviewed here I don t think you d need to have read that one to understand what s going on in Crankset This story is longer but has the same ingredients of a sweet and sexy relationship between the two main characters and a colourful cast of background characters I liked it almost as much as the first story although it didn t have uite the same impactCrankset opens with a scene that beautifully sets up the main conflict Broke as usual Matt has found a free sofa on the street and is determined to get it back to their shared apartment despite Jason s misgivings about the orange plaid and possibilities of resident bugs However when they get there it turns out that Ricky has already bought a new sofa with her recently increased salary and is also talking about putting up the rent While she justifies by saying rents are rising all over the trendy Mission district Matt sees it as a personal affront Like him I couldn t help reading into it that Ricky was now sick of having two young men sleeping behind a curtain in the living room and was trying to elbow them out of the way just like she does with the sofaMatt and Jason are as sweet together as ever in this story and while Matt s aggressive approach to life results in a small amount of conflict between them their relationship is never under threat Indeed the very reason Matt opposes Jason s idea to move to another area is because of how protective he feels towards his Gulf War veteran boyfriend He s worried that unfamiliar surroundings could trigger another attack of post traumatic stress although Jason is clearly much stable nowAs in Chainbreaker the vibrant surroundings of the Mission are beautifully observed with plenty of arresting details woven into the narrative I particularly loved the way Matt observes the neighbours across the street from the safety of their rooftopHe watched a purple haired guy with thick black rimmed glasses lean out of a fourth floor window to water a flower box Almost immediately the water dripped out the bottom glittering in the sun Someone yelled from the streetThese details bring San Francisco vividly to life yet are deftly fitted between the dialogue so you never find the description intrusive Another aspect that s just as strong are the fun sex scenes that Roman skilfully integrates within the plotThe reason I wasn t uite so taken with this story though were the other characters They are all female apart from one token prospective housemate and with the exception of Ricky I couldn t find a huge amount to distinguish them Perhaps there were just too many of them for me to cope with in such a short story Mama Yung who I loved in the first story was woefully underused although she does get one of the best linesIt s difficult when reviewing a seuel as you can t help but compare to the previous book yet I think on its own merits this one is a great read It has a touching and sexy romance between two likable leads and the setting is vividly realised I was going to give it a B as I d given Chainbreaker a B but I think it s actually worth than that and I probably should have given Chainbreaker an A
