Life for Cam and Mason is just as hectic as ever. As they try to balance working for Division P with Cam’s military service and Mason’s medical practice, they also have to find time for each other. It’s not easy on the lovers, who seem to be busy all the time. Even moving in together isn’t the perfect answer either, when their schedules don’t match. Cam’s flying with the Navy and Mason’s trying to find a new partner for his orthopedic practice and being apart even for a short time is difficult. Just when it looks like things are smoothing out, fate throws them a huge curve ball, sending their lives in an unexpected direction.

Zero to 165 by AR Moler is the newest look into the lives of Cam and Mason, who we first met in Hell Dogs Squadron and Seeking the Balance. So as you can imagine, I recommend you read these books first.

It’s been almost three years since the release of the first books, so it’s nice getting to see what’s happening with these two lovers with psychic abilities. Their relationship is deeper—more intense—than before and the developing emotional and psychic bonds are well done. Between their part-time jobs at Division P and Mason’s medical practice, several characters seen previously are back and a handful of new ones have been added for interest.

The story is just over 36K, so things zip along timeline-wise at a fairly fast pace. The author also weaves in all the parts of the guys life well, but some of the scenes are just too jerky—and short—it’s distracting and left me with a feeling of wanting to know more. The big dramatic moment comes near the end and caught me by surprise—I didn’t see the story going in that direction, but I like it. It also fits and I can’t wait to see where it takes Cam and Mason in the future.
