★★★★★This book is a fast paced, action packed adventure. Are the characters morally ambiguous? Yes. Do we love them anyway? Yes. Jonah and Caspian burn up the pages with sexual tension and when they finally come together BOOM!! --LE, reviewer
★★★★★This book is the literary equivalent of running wind-sprints down a dark alley while being shot at every time you slow down. It will get your heart racing and your blood pumping and you won't be able to stop reading! --MMD, reviewer
★★★★★Bad Habits brings together two of my favorite authors and the resulting synergy created one of my favorite books of the year. --Ana, reviewer
★★★★★Caspian and Jonah's high-stakes adventure was as thrilling and unexpected as it was steamy. From the very first pages, this story sucked me in, and the fast-paced, sometimes bloody, hazards they faced kept the momentum going all story long. --Emily, reviewer
★★★★★ At any given moment my heart was in mouth wondering what was going to happen next or it was melting from the white hot chemistry between our two MCs. --Kirk, reviewer
★★★★★The plot and the romance all comes down to a fast paced thriller and if you like morally ambiguous characters with their hearts in the right places, a band of misfits, scorching hot chemistry and sexy times, I'd definitely recommend Bad Habits. --Sunshine & Rainbows Book Blog

Also, who (Caspian) - rolls off the couch/bed after a threesome with their friend/on again/off again(Briar), and the on again/off again's boyfriend (Lux?)- and gets so violently mad (major property damage) that the guy(Jonah) they swear they've been in love with- but haven't seen or spoken to in 5 years- is engaging in an intimate encounter with some rando at a club? Like, what?
The pointlessness of this unnecessary information literally took me out of the story, and made me less curious or interested in continuing to read. I'm no prude, but reading/learning about pointless and gratuitous sexual involvement/engagement, when it has no bearing on the core story is beyond ridiculous. Briar could literally have just been a good friend that stood by Caspian. End of story. Gay men can be 'just friends' with other gay men, and/or trans male to females, or females to males. They don't all sleep together.
I don't get this writing device where in order to introduce a non-central/ peripheral character, they have to be a friend-turned lover-turned friend, or a lover/bathroom hook-up turned friend. Like, there are huge portions of the LGBTQ+ community ( regardless of culture or geography) who form tight, lasting friend groups who've never slept with each other. Why continue to perpetuate this somewhat pseudo-incestuous stereotype? Why do I never read about healthy, honest-to-goodness friendships between gay men? Friendships forged through genuine connection and maintained by love that's built over time, through ups and downs? You know, the way lesbians, straight men and straight women's friendships are frequently portrayed?
Honestly? Turn off the Skins, Queer as Folk (UK version for those with taste👌), Sex Education, Euphoria, etc. There's a reason these are just tv series. This is not how young Millennials and Gen Zers live our lives. Case in point, the research has finally caught up: younger people are having less sex. It's less frequent, with fewer partners, and it starts later in life than previous generations. 'Hookup culture' is far more prevalent on tv than in real life, even with all the apps and programs available to engage in as many anonymous guilt free hookups as one could possibly want. Young Millennials and Gen Zers (both male and female) just aren't doing it.
Seriously, the stereotyping (which I see in 98% of M/M romances), is such a turn off.
I'm also a huge fan of high-heat, explosive-chemistry romance, and Neve Wilder does those well. With smooth prose and erotic imagery creating sexual tension that sets off sparks.
Put the two together and you've got spontaneous combustion. Bad Habits (Wages of Sin, Book 1) brings together two of my favorite authors and the resulting synergy created one of my favorite books of the year. I devoured it - snarfed up the first few chapters feeling like I was tailing the guys through New York City, smelling the exhaust, the stale food, feeling the grit of the city on my skin...it's not too far out of James' lane but for Wilder, it's quite the departure and the product of their collaboration kept me up until after 2 am. I just couldn't put it down.
Smart-mouthed, quick-witted young hacker Caspian, who finds himself in a sticky situation and world-weary assassin Jonah, who steps in to help, have now become two of my favorite characters ever.
The plot, the pacing, the characters, and the hot, hot, sex all come together in a fast-paced thriller that's got a satisfying happy ending while setting the stage for the rest of the series. I'm ready for the next one, though I'm hoping to see a bit more of Jonah and Caspian, too

This was a fairly steamy read 🔥🔥🔥 I have to say. You could feel the heat count rising 🌡 the further you got into the story, and I did like Cas's character a lot, he was mostly open and honest...Jonah on the other hand was an acquired taste. Not going to spoiler what was going on in the background of the assassin/hacker story, I'm not usually one for stories centred around hacking and killing, but this one had Neve's name on it and that was good enough for me.
Book 2, Play Dirty, comes out in December and is available for pre-order.
He returns to the States where he runs into an old acquaintance, Jonah, who saved Caspian when he first arrived in the city at 16. Jonah is a Norman for hire. Although he is not after Caspian, he has heard about the job.
Caspian soon realizes that he must stay with Jonah if is to stay alive. This is not much of a challenge, as Caspian has had a crush on Jonah since they first met.I
There is a lot of action, intrigue, wondering who they can trust. The story revolves around a computer hacker, something that is not easy to explain. The authors do a great job and I stayed up all night to read this book. Was ensnared from the first page to the last.
Badass Assassin Jonah has a huge soft spot for the Smart Mouthed Hacker Caspian who he took in as a teen.
After being apart for years when Cas comes back there is no way Jonah is going to let the one person go who keeps him “feeling”, and he will do anything to make sure Cas is safe.
I love a good romance (I devoured this book) that also has a fantastic story as well.
Bad Habit is fast paced, has plenty of action both in and out of the bedroom, lots of banter that had me laughing with a great story and characters.
I am looking forward to more of this series.
