Start over
At Attention - Annabeth Albert

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!

Review: At Attention
At Attention - Annabeth Albert

Oh, Apollo. You grumpy, indecisive SEAL, you. How you annoyed me!

 

Most of the book was Apollo being hot and cold, back and forth. It was a battle between Apollo's brain and body. He wanted Dylan, but knew he shouldn't, because he couldn't allow himself to be happy. He was so grumpy, and rude. He was so frustrating. It was hard to see his positive sides, and actually like him. 

 

Dylan was such a happy and sweet guy. He must be the most patient and forgiving guy ever. What did he see in Apollo that made him suck all the grumpiness? I feel he deserved better than Apollo to be honest. 

 

That being said, there were sweet and hot moments between Dylan and Apollo. I enjoyed reading those. However, I feel they were ruined by Apollo's obvious guilt and emotional retreat after.

 

Apollo didn't make up his mind until

90%! And the story finishes at 95%.

(spoiler show)

Too little to late for me. It was a frustrating read, and it took me a long time to finish, since I could only read short portions at a time since I got so annoyed reading.

 

I wasn't able to fully enjoy this story, which bums me out.

 

 

An ARC was provided by the author for an honest review.

quote 2017-02-12 19:18
“Books speak to us thoughtfully, one at a time. They demand our attention. And they demand that we briefly put aside our own beliefs and prejudices and listen to someone else’s. There’s one questions I think we should ask one another a lot more often, and that’s “what are you reading?”

"And we can't make the same mistake twice."

Dylan's chest gave him an unhappy twinge. He shouldn't be surprised or hurt that Apollo called him a mistake. Of course, Apollo was going to have serious guilt and feels. But still, he hated that one of the single hottest moments of his life was reduced to a mistake

 

Apollo is still being kind of a dick.
