When life was forever changed by things falling from the sky delivering killer plants, forcing the survivors into a walled city. A world of differences between the haves and have-nots.
Ori definitely falls into the have-nots. His life a series of anonymous hookups except for Rive a cop. He’s not in love but he does like him. Along with Rive comes his partner Jack. Who Ori is really interested in.
Ori is hospitalized against his will to determine if he is the “Jesus” that is going to save them all and Jack is his only lifeline. Ori isn’t your typical hero, not really even very likable.
This was a really strange book. Confusingly intriguing and irritating at the same time. I was fascinated with parts of it. Other parts seemed kind of jumbled. The use of colors was very vivid and brought an eerie vibe to the story.
The future depicted seemed to be a commentary on how corrupt the ruling class can be and how the oppressed will always rise up.
I went back and forth between 3 and 4 stars and finally settled on 4. An interesting book.
Ori’s mother was stung by one of these plants call the “booweed” when she was pregnant with him. When others died from this, she survived and gave birth to Ori. She was sure about one thing; her son is the cure. Eighteen years later, Ori is a young hypersexual junkie. He refuses to hear about this so-called prophecy and tries just to survive in this new world. But what Ori wants doesn’t matter when the government plotted against him and tries to use him as a laboratory rat. Until Jack, a cop, who knows Ori and even if he doesn’t like the kid, he can’t walk away from him.
This book was something.
Ori is a young man, completely lost in his life. He wants to be invisible, to live his life. But in the meantime, he can’t stay alone, he’s completely attracted to Jack but thinks that Jack hates him and doesn’t try to correct it. He’s blunt and talks without thinking first. He’s also fine with his sexuality and his needs (like staying a night on a roof of a bar and being f*** by every guy who’s willing to f**** him). But, even if he seems to be crazy, or high, he’s also strong and doesn’t hesitate to fight back when it’s needed.
Jack is a cop with his best friend River. River is friends with Ori, and he takes care of him, and Jack knows Ori through him. Even if he pretends to dislike the kid, he doesn’t hesitate to protect him, to fight for him, or to take care of him. The more time he spends with Ori, the more Jack realises that he lied to himself all those years, and Ori means more to him.
This book is about survival in this new world when mother nature can kill you at any time. This book is about how a group people can survive in extreme conditions, and how a few can control the many. This book is also about love, friendship, family and what we can do for each other—what we can endure for each other. I’m not a fan of dystopia genre. The book was at moments too long and too confusing sometimes, but I admit that the moment I started the book I couldn’t stop my read. Even when I took some breaks, I was thinking about Ori and Jack.
It’s 3 OptimuMMs for the Jesus Kid and his protector
In Jesus Kid, you see people struggle with different hardship throughout the book, and also see how they conquer them.
Ori is a very self conscious young man, he thinks he is good for no one and nothing. He sleeps around and stays high all of the time acting like someone that he really isn’t.
Jake is a cop, a law informing and abiding citizen. He doesn’t have much left, just friends, that is until Ori finally catches his eye.
These two may seem like complete opposites, but they are perfect together. Things happen and Jake must save Ori, more than once. With Ori being the Jesus kid, a lot of things with be thrown their way and they will have to not give up on their battles or each other. Even going through h*ll, these two have a really great chemistry but because of they way Ori thinks of himself, he keeps trying to push the thoughts of “love” away.
If you would like to see how Ori, Jake, and all of their friends handle everything thrown their way, then you should start Jesus Kid for yourself, now.
I recommend this book to anyone that loves MM romance, fantasy, paranormal, and sci-fi.
This is my completely honest and unbiased review.

The author excels at penning damaged and/or hugely flawed protagonists, and this was no exception. While twenty-two year old supposed second coming and confirmed hot mess, Ori Scott, sleeps his way through the men of Wish City not least ‘cause he’s a wanton minx who aches to belong and be loved, but moreso to mask his vulnerabilities, his long-time crush and cop, Jack Doll [great name], is a man of contradictions. Torn, our hero initially yo-yo’s between his secret desire, growing admiration and even love for young Ori, while still remaining convinced he’s nothing more than trouble. And he’s not entirely wrong. As falling for the Jesus kid does ultimately trigger all-out chaos…but also leads to a pretty damn romantic conclusion for the MCs, too. Great stuff. Recommended.
