When college graduate Nick Evers meets his father’s business associate, Elizabeth Bach, it’s no schoolboy crush. Nor is it mere sexual desire. He’s smitten by the stunning, mature, career-driven woman, and he knows to his bones that he has to have her. She has no time for boys, but no one has ever pursued her to the degree Nick has. He’ll even follow her to Spain to convince her he’s the one for her. Sure, he’s handsome and charming, tall and athletic, and the sex could be spectacular, but he’s too young for her. His wealthy and influential father, with his own infatuation for her, could be a much bigger problem. Having a relationship with his son could destroy a career she’s fought long and hard to achieve.

"Kilometro Cero" by James Walter Lee explores an intriguing dynamic between a young college graduate, Nick, and the mature, career-driven woman, Elizabeth.

James Walter Lee weaves a tale of desire, sacrifice, and the complexities of age and social status. The sizzling chemistry between Nick and Elizabeth, set against the backdrop of Spain, adds an irresistible allure to this gripping read.
This was a complex, and enthralling read that will captivate you from beginning to end.
I was a little skeptical about this book as the title didn't really connect with me, but I was in for a surprise! This book was a page turner from the start and I couldn't put it down. The plot took a couple tangents, but it all came together nicely in the end and was a captivating read. Highly recommend!
What a crazy ride.
Nick just got his MBA and meets 1 of his fathers beautiful colleagues as his graduation party.
He goes on a rampage of man whoring to say the very least LOL. I think he is so lost that he figures sex is the answer to stop himself from feeling what he does for this beautiful colleague of his fathers.
He starts sleeping around, he dates and gets engaged a bit too quickly. But nothing stops what he knows must be love.
It's an interesting read, fast paced events happening non-stop that you won't be able to put this book down.
Thank you to NetGalley and Zennea Press for allowing me to read this arc.
A very sexy coming of age novel. Nick may have thought by going through college and achieving his MBA he had finally grown up. But it takes a certain woman....
Hot and emotional.
*Thank you so much for the opportunity to read Kilometro Cero- James Walter Lee, NetGalley and Zennea Press.
First of all, the cover of this book is gorgeous- both e-book and paperback, which the author was actually kind enough to send me a signed copy of!
Nick and his friends give me major Logan off of Gilmore Girls vibes, Logan and his friends! Also, I read on the author Q&A that Lee modeled the book kind of after The Graduate, but reverses roles. Which is one of my favorites.
The storyline was great. Lee's writing is great. I can't say I have read many articles written by men, and it was really good. The book was written in a third party POV format. I am not a huge lover of third party POV, and that is truly the only thing that made me read so slowly.
I also would have loved a little more drama early on in the book. I think that may have made a less slow read. As a born and raised Georgian, I did really like that Nick's hometown was Atlanta.
I enjoyed all aspects of this book: descriptions of the travel, FMC, MMC, conflict, structure and pacing. I would recommend this book widely to almost everyone, with nearly zero exceptions, even for those who don't appreciate some of the tropes discussed in this book. The age gap was well-portrayed, balancing their connection with the challenges they faced. The MMC's interest, while first thought of as infatuation, in the FMC, is well-developed and explored throughout the book, and I wasn't left wanting. I appreciated the portrayal of Elizabeth and I was emotionally touched by her story.
