Awesome answers! I don't know what Zero At the Bone means, but I'm afraid of it now, too. It sounds terrifying.;)

'Zero at the bone' the quote is a line from an Emily Dickinson poem. Zero At the Bone the book is a gay romance/spy/thriller novel :)

I like all those things! Except possibly spy, but Emily Dickinson + gay romance/thriller outweighs it.:)

It's not really spies... I was thinking after I wrote that that 'hitman' would be more accurate. One of the pair of star-crossed lovers is a doctor and the other is a hitman. There's FBI intrigue and courtroom drama involved. Also, gay sex. It's fun :D

I like hit men! Especially gay hit men. Not sure why, but I do.:) There are four books in our library system by that title, tho, and none of them are the right one. It must be the most popular of the Zero at the Bones, too, because when I checked Amazon it was the top return. I put it on my wishlist for when I need a treat.:)

I'm actually not surprised your library doesn't have it. I think it was published by a fairly small company, which publishes mostly gay romances. I follow the author on tumblr- she writes a lot of fic as well :)
