Complicated
Squared Away (Out of Uniform #5) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #5, in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Mark is a SEAL and not much shakes him up, usually.  With tragic news, he rushes to home to find Isaiah has things in hand.  The very man he has been avoiding since his sister's wedding six years ago.  Now they must find a compromise for the future.

 

Isaiah has been doing just fine with the kids in his care.  Mark coming home is not going to change that.  With a little luck, and maybe a miracle, they can come together for the kids and make is better.

 

Sizzle and pop are what you hear when these men look at one another.  This great addition to an already stellar series, brings back some series favorites with cameos too.  I loved the very real feelings that were between the characters.  I also loved that the pace was not rushed.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) by Annabeth Albert Review
Wheels Up (Out of Uniform) - Annabeth Albert

heir love is forbidden, but their hearts aren’t listening to rules and regulations…

Lieutenant Dustin Strauss is a reformed man. No longer a twentysomething hell-raiser, he’s his SEAL team’s new XO—and a man with a secret. Or seven. He’s kept his bisexual identity under wraps for years, along with his kinky side and a fondness for the military-themed semianonymous hookup website Joe4Joe. His latest chat buddy is more than a sexy online distraction—they’re taking their very not-safe-for-work relationship into real time.

Petty Officer Wes Lowe has a smart mouth, a take-charge attitude and an uncanny ability for making things go boom. The life of an enlisted man isn’t always enough to satisfy him, but one wild, no-questions-asked weekend with his online love comes close. When a transfer order comes in, Wes feels ready and centered. He’ll make a good impression on his new SEAL team and keep his growing feelings for Dustin on the down low.

But as they log more time online and some very real emotions surface, Dustin and Wes struggle to pretend they’re just a harmless fling. And when his commander introduces Dustin to his team’s newest member, they’re in for the shock of a lifetime…and a crushing disappointment: their difference in ranks means even a friendship without sexual contact could end their navy careers for good. 

With their hearts on the line, Dustin and Wes may not survive their next mission, let alone find a way toward a future together.

 

Review

 

I like Annabetb Albert a great deal and I love this series. I didn't love this book and struggled to finish it. 

I adored the opening with Dustin and Wes meeting in San Diego but once that got to San Diego the book went south for me. 

Partly, I never really got over Dustin not being more honest and open with his brother (a hero from a previous book in the series). I am also not a huge fan of forbidden romance but good writing (and Albert is a very good writer) can move me past that. However, I just never adjusted the the angst and the lack of couple time in this book.

Not for me. 

I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.

Off Base by Annabeth Albert $1.99 Love this seriesQ
Off Base (Out of Uniform #1) - Annabeth Albert

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.

Hit me
Wheels Up (Out of Uniform) - Annabeth Albert

This is book #4, in the Out Of Uniform series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

 

Dustin & Wes have an incredible hot moment in time.  Then they find out they are co-workers.  Now it cost them everything if they choose to be together.

 

Wes moves all the way across country to a new team.  Only to find out he knows someone there already.  Can he resist the one man who has held his dreams captive?

 

This is such a sweet, yet steamy book.  I love this series and how it brings out the characters choosing from real odds for love.  The characters are easy to connect with and have a sparkling chemistry that is hard to deny.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
