Ryan Gracin had a good life until he told his parents he was gay. Since they yanked their support for college he had to find a way to pay for it. Little did he know that joining the Army was going to change his life forever. Especially when he was introduced to a Drill Sergeant who was nicknamed ‘Big Daddy’.
Phillip Grabowski had joined the Army to follow in his father’s footsteps; by the time Ryan entered, he had already made a name for himself. He was a soldier’s solider, but Ryan was making it really hard for him to remember that.
While it took me longer than most to get around to reading this book, I finally made it a priority and, fuck, am I glad I did! It was absolutely wonderful and made it right onto the fuck yeah, 5+ stars shelf. I have a soft spot for military men, but the stories and/or writing and/or characters are usually crap (with the notable exception of the marvelous Strength of the Pack) so this was a welcomed surprise.
Everything you need to know is in the blurb. This book is definitely a MUST READ and highly recommended for any M/M romance fan. It is not to be missed. Do yourself a favor and read this one now if you have not already. You will be delighted.
I leave with our boys having a little wrestle and a little Etta James.
This book is not available on Amazon.com. I have linked three stores that still sell it.
