    1. I know, I know, I'm probably the only one not giving this book a high acclaim and it's not because the author really did anything wrong, it's for personal views. I'm a bisexual, I make no bones about it and the way bisexuality was portrayed in this book really upset me. I get enough abuse from straight and gay people telling me to pick a side or that I'm greedy. It sucks seeing it in a book from a genre that I think of as tolerant. Maybe it added to the plot line but for me it didn't. Also I hat [...]


    2. I had to let this digest a little before attempting a review. But I stick with what I said-K.Z. Snow is still one of my favorite authors, one of the few authors I think I would buy anything she wrote without hesitation. The fact that I enjoyed this book as much as I did is a real testament to her talent as a writer. I have kind of a short attention span so I tend to like fast-paced, action, adventure and fantasy books with loads of conflict and fighting and sex. This book is not like that. It's [...]


    3. "The scales will always tip in favor of what enriches your life. That's the thing you'll end up choosing."Jess, a young man ready to start his college life away from his small hometown, friends with a group of young people who are "different" - sexually ambiguous, finds himself suddenly looking at one of his oldest friends in a totally new light.Dylan, "Mig" to his buds, has been friends with Jess, has secrets of his own. He is gay, not bi, working as a welder, closeted, the only son of conserva [...]


    4. This is K.Z. Snow's first foray to the YA genre, and somehow, I cannot stop comparing the theme that I get with Nick Burd's The Vast Fields of Ordinary. Maybe because this story takes span of the "summer" before going of to college. Maybe because the kids here also exploring their sexuality. But, despite me cringing over the nickname "Mig" (somehow it rhymes with Pig!) it's all good :p.The protagonist of this book is 18-year-old Jesse Bonner (again, a cringeworthy last-name, I mean, Bonner, real [...]


    5. this is why i keep on reading ya m/m. no matter how many disappointing experiences, i know there are books like this one out there, just waiting for me to find themss and mig were incredibly realistic and lovable!i could forgive jess everything, even things, like promiscuity, that i normally have problems with, because i could understand his motives and everything he felt - his love, too.i even forgave tomby/dominga: three-dimensional, young and, in the end, a good person, even as a secondary ch [...]


    6. This review was originally published on my blog Joyfully JayIt is the summer after high school and 18-year-old Jess Bonner is starting to realize he is changing and growing and perhaps moving past some of his childhood friends and activities. He is also realizing that he has strong feelings for his long-time friend Dylan "Mig" Finch. Dylan shares Jess' feelings of growing past his childhood friends and interests. He has a full-time job as a well respected welder, but still lives at home with his [...]


    7. Once again, the superior quality of KZ Snow's writing talent shines through in this very touching, heart-gripping, romantic drama. Zero Knot is a coming-of-age, coming-out, edgy and realistic romance that is heavily laced with richly textured characters and powerful, thought-provoking messaging.Jess and Mig (aka Dylan) have been friends most of their lives. Both eighteen and fresh out of high school, their hormones are raging. When they realize that they both are crushing on each other, they hav [...]


    8. The emotional development of the two main characters as they transition for kids to adults and friends to lovers is inspiring and quite poignant. It had a lot more depth than I was expecting, not because it had a crazy plot, but the strength of Dylan and Jess to stop lying to themselves and others and stand up for what they want. Jess trajectory as the primary character is dominant and we ride along with him. His introspection is worth reading. Plus, I'd give up all three of my siblings to have [...]


    9. 3 1/2 starsNote: I received this eARC from the publisher via NetGalley. That had no influence on my review/rating.


    10. Jess & Dylan aka Mig are at that point in their lives where they are ready to 'start growing up'. I was quite surprised with this story, I wasn't expecting it to have such a 'heavy' plot. We get to see these guys go from hanging and 'messin' around in their 'club'just being teenagers to finding themselves, a great friendship and an even better relationship. It definitely wasn't easy for these two along the way but they managed to figure how to get through it. A huge feat considering some of [...]


    11. 3.5 for me. I was pleasantly surprised. For a YA it was surprising full off adult angst and not of teenage drama. I have to agree with others that the prologue kind of hurt this stories enjoyment. I think I was a little more than 1/2 way when I kept flipping back trying to figure out what in the world was about to happen! I mean crap one of them are going to go to jail. I loved Red, interfering little brothers are so fun to read about.



    12. 3.0 StarsBook went nowhere until that last 20% of stupid. But it was well-written, and I felt like (for once) the teens in this book acted like idiot teens with their bad choices, questionable behavior and self-centered actions. Had some character growth, so there's that.POV alternated and I would have liked more from Mig (Dylan) on his plight, how he was dealing with being in jail, what he was experiencingan just some weird thought-process on writing a note to Jess. Would have been nice had Bra [...]


    13. Part of growing up is figuring out who you are, what you want, and what you're willing to do to get it. In The Zero Knot, KZ Snow gives us a coming of age story where three young men arrive at two different answers.The blurb describes the story rather completely, so the question here isn't so much what happens as how it happens. It's a bumpy road for Jess and Mig; their interest in one another is blooming to love, but the call of the hormones drags them in several directions. Jess in particular [...]


    14. Expect my full review January 14, 2012 on Ramblings of an Amateur Writer: wp/pPz8s-26NI’ve been dying to try a young adult M/M romance. I’ve read a few m/m adult romances and have had a hard time getting into them. I’d hope adding the young adult element would pull me in where other novels had not. What I found was although this is a coming-of-age novel, it is NOT a young adult novel. Yes, the protagonists are young (18), but the sexual scenes are very adult. While the level of sex in the [...]


    15. 4 1/2 Wonderful Stars!!! They only reason I am not giving this book a full 5 stars is simply because I felt the beginning was a little slow to me, but that said, we also spent that time getting to know the characters, whom I must say, I totally loved!!! Jess Bonner and Dylan 'Mig' Finch have been friends for years and both have begun to feel a little more than 'friendship' for each other recently. This is a wonderful coming of age and coming into your sexuality story. It is honest, raw, and beau [...]


    16. I don't know why it's taken me so long to find K.Z. Snow. I really enjoy the way she writes, and this story was wonderful. Jess and Mig were funny and romantic and sexy and exuded just the right amount of angst without getting maudlin. Jess's little brother, Red, cracked me up every time he opened his mouth, and I kept hoping Bran and Tomby would be dipped in gasoline and set on fire for being dicks. I think maybe the hero of this story for me was Jess's dad. He was so giving and understanding a [...]


    17. Jess and Dylan have known each other forever, but while Dylan has wanted Jess for a long time, Jess is only now realizing that his sexual desires can be something more when he looks at Dylan. Add a couple of jealous friends, as a casual foursome breaks up with highschool graduation, and you get this look at teenagers on the brink of adulthood. This story might be subtitled "teenagers make bad choices." That was both one of its attractions and its issues for me. The characters in this story feel [...]


    18. This was a good story but I'm afraid the prologue ruined the enjoyment for me. I was so full of anxiety with worrying about what was going to happen that I couldn't read it straight through. I kept thinking disaster was right around the corner so I'd put it down and walk away. Then get anxious and read another chapter, put it down, etc. When the "incident" finally occurred, it was anti-climactic. So if I hadn't read the prologue first, I think I would have enjoyed the story more. The characters [...]


    19. 3.5 stars. I admire K.Z. Snow's writing ability and this book is certainly well-written. I liked both the MCs and Jess' family was well drawn.I had to push myself through the book, though, because the plot line was not so much my thing. The two MCs are long-time gay friends just out of high school. They get together early on in the story and then there's essentially a lot of angst that keeps them apart through most of the book. The angst is both internally generated (misunderstandings, I don't w [...]


    20. This is a great coming of age story. The main character, Jess, is depicted realistically and had me fascinated. His fears, aspirations, disappointmments and hopes, the desperate need to fit in somewhere all seemed logical to him, where I kept thinking that, with a litte more life experience, things would look quite different. Which is the point of a coming of age story, I guess, and this is a good example.Recommended if you want to be reminded of 'what it was like', have children in that age gro [...]


    21. 4+ stars!This fantastic jewel of a book is about two very likable gay teenagers (18), transitioning into adulthood, in conservative small-town America. The angst is not over-the-top but enough to keep the plot interesting. The romance is sweet but not sickeningly so. And the sex scenes are descriptive but not overdone. To me, this could easily be the retelling of a true story. Highly recommend this book!


    22. *re-read 4/23/2015* TOTALLY stand by that 5 star rating. I don't know many authors who spin words, have such fabulous prose, as KZ Snow. I could re-read her books over and over, this one in particular.


    23. So often people think young people don't know what they are talking about when it comes to love and sometimes they're right. But when love hits like a bolt. You know. And doing everything you can to be with that person it what happens. No matter the cost. True love is worth it. A sweet love story for young adults having to brave the world in so many ways. So glad they got their happy


    24. Jesse steht ein neuer Abschnitt in seinem Leben bevor. Er hat gerade die High School abgeschlossen und wird im kommenden Januar am College in Madison anfangen. Den Sommer und das restliche Jahr will er mit seiner Familie und seinen Freunden in seiner Heimatstadt verbringen, ein bisschen Geld bei seinem Job verdienen und ansonsten einfach nur Spaß haben. Er ist fest entschlossen, den auch zu bekommen, denn als typischer 18jähriger hat er nichts anderes als Sex im Kopf.Die einzige kleine Besonde [...]


    25. Though I can see why this book has above four star average on –it's well written, easy to read, and has a plot with some M/M erotica on the side instead the other way around, which is my usual gripe–there are several reason why The Zero Knot didn't work as well for me. The title is cute, different, and enticing, the kind that makes you–read me–pick up a book and read it without even considering the blurb. Unfortunately, that feeling didn't last as I began reading the explanations–yes, [...]


    26. This book actually surprised me a little, and I ended up liking it more than I expected. I didn't love the portrayal of the Domino Club. There's nothing wrong with feeling like you've outgrown a group of friends, but it bothered me that Mig and Jess wrote the others off so completely. Obviously we learn later than Bran is an ass anyway, but at this point it seemed harsh and a little unfair. Hanging out in the one fiends basement and experimenting with a variety of things also reminded me very mu [...]


    27. My first KZ Snow book; loved it and plan to explore more books by this author. Sweet coming-of-age, falling-in-love story. Jess's younger brother, Jared, aka Red, was a hoot and his juvenile, but wise, discourse brought about some of the best dialogues in the book. Had me LOL frequently--here's a prime example: Red resumed nibbling. The questions clearly weren't over. "Do you ever, likeove stuff up your butt?" Jess wheezed into laughter. "What?" "Umfy Randall says fa---" Another blush surfaced w [...]


    28. The Zero Knot was certainly different from the types of books I normally read but I really enjoyed it. Set in small-town America, it is the story of two friends Jess and Dylan (nicknamed Mig) coming to terms with the fact they are gay and that they also have feelings for each other. There is some angst involved (relating to coming out etc.) but overall the two protagonists are generally comfortable with the fact that they are gay. What isn't easy for either of them is trying to overcome the diff [...]


    29. It was a bit difficult for me to read this book because the #1 nightmare plot for me is when innocents are wrongly accused of something. The prologue, which actually occurs later in the story, put me in a state of anguish and it colored my reading. I didn't want anything bad to happen to Jess and Mig, the wonderful main characters of the book, but I knew something was coming and the sense of doom made me worried and nervous. It's a sweet story though, fellow readers, so don't make my mistakes an [...]
