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 what 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.


Boy, did this book call out to me:

Age gap + forbidden romance + military = hells yeah!

And it delivered! What starts off as a one-night stand quickly turns into more.

What I loved:

-Sean and Paul. They were great individually and together. Even though they were in different stages of their lives, they still fit together perfectly.

-The forbidden romance. There’s some about a secret rendezvous that ticks my buttons. It’s exciting and fun- it feels like when you have a crush on someone.

-Relationship development. As mentioned above it all begin with a one-night stand that turned into seeing each other more and more. Their feelings for each other felt real, and you could feel how torn they felt. They knew it was wrong on multiple levels but how do you walk away from something that feels so right?

-Chemistry. It is off the charts hot!! HOLY. COW. You may want to be home while reading this one.

-Narration: dual POV.

-Pace. It’s easy and quick.

-Angst. It’s there but not overwhelming.

-The end- it’s awesome! Full of swoon and excited for the next story to come.

LA Witt has a winner on her hands! You don’t want to miss out on this one! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. 4 Stars.
