|Maddox and Ben are on a mission that goes wrong for them. They are SEALS who are also roommates. Ben is very open about his sexuality but Maddox is more lowkey. Before being deployed Ben had set up an encounter that Maddox enjoyed but made their situation weird for Maddox. They have been trying to get back on an even keel since then. Now during recovery they have the opportunity to see if they can make a relationship work for them.
I enjoyed these characters. I liked the main story line. The flashbacks worked well as they fleshed out this story and told us what we needed to know. I liked that the main sticking point for the men was not staying in the closet but deciding if they could move on to the future with different dreams. I will read more of this series.
After trading the barracks for a fixer-upper rental, navy SEAL Zack Nelson wants peace, not a roommate—especially not Pike, who sees things about Zack he most wants to hide. Pike's flirting puts virgin Zack on edge. And the questions Pike's arrival would spark from Zack's teammates about his own sexuality? Nope. Not going there. But Zack can't refuse.
Pike Reynolds knows there won't be a warm welcome in his new home. What can he say? He's an acquired taste. But he needs this chance to get his life together. Also, teasing the uptight SEAL will be hella fun. Still, Pike has to tread carefully; he's had his fill of tourists in the past, and he can't risk his heart on another, not even one as hot, as built—and, okay, yeah, as adorable—as Zack.
Living with Pike crumbles Zack's restraint and fuels his curiosity. He discovers how well they fit together in bed…in the shower…in the hallway… He needs Pike more than he could have imagined, yet he doesn't know how to be the man Pike deserves.
This is the 3rd book in the Out Of Uniform series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, to avoid spoilers, and really enjoy the series, I recommend reading in order.
Maddox & Ben have been best friends since their BUD(S) training. They work together, live together, and so far it works for them. Or does it?
Ben is starting to see that Maddox wanting a future with someone else is not going to work. He never wanted forever before, but he cannot sit idly by and watch his best friend find happiness with someone else. It's time to come clean.
I sincerely love this series! I loved this book, and the way it handled this friends to lovers approach. I could not put the book down and wanted more when I was done. These characters are so rich and complex. I cannot wait for the next book in the Out Of Uniform series. I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #2, in the Out Of Uniform series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading series in order.
Apollo has known Dylan for almost 20 years. His big brother is Apollo's best friend. He has always thought of him as a "kid." Being attracted to him is a shock.
Dylan has been in love with Apollo for as long as he can remember. Now it is like breathing. He knows Apollo needs his help, but he wants to be more. What will it take to be seen as an equal?
This was a story that made me feel everything. I laughed, cried, and wished for them to get together pretty much right away. This author never disappoints. I always love seeing the big alpha's fall. Great addition to the series. I cannot wait to read the next book. I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
