For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly wh
at both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted
twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

Wow….thank you for that titillating read. I really do enjoy a book that involves the military and an age gap between the two MC’s. What made it even hotter, was that the younger man ended up being the top! Not to mention, the sexual chemistry between two characters was hot and quite frequent.
flbHowever, the “getting to know you” between Paul and Sean seemed to happen behind scenes toward the latter part of the story. If you want my two cents, it would have been nice to read about it so we could see more of a relationship between them. Honestly, I felt like their connection wasn’t strong and it made it hard for me to believe that they would make it. Poor Sean. Seriously, all he really wants is for someone to choose him first. After all, he has come second to his father’s Navy career his whole life. Then finally, he’s put first, but even then I was wondering if it was just because of the spectacular sex they are having.

I did enjoy this book, however, I found it lacking in information. I am still trying to figure out:

  • Sean’s age.
  • What is degree is Sean seeking and did he graduate?
  • If Travis was such a good friend, why wasn’t he mentioned/involved more?
  • Why wasn’t Sean surprised when Paul mentioned he was married twice?

With that said, it was an enjoyable read and I cannot wait to see where L.A. Witt takes us read the next book: Afraid to Fly.

I love reading books about boys who love other boys <3. Sometimes there is a HEA or HFN, but sometimes it just is. Yes, I love all outcomes even it is not what I hoped for. We all need a good cry from time to time. As you can probably can tell, I love cliffhangers as well. Yeah, I am one of those people :) I read a variety of genres, whether it is dark/taboo, historical, shifters, GFY, SciFi, mysteries/thrillers; I love it all.
