In the military, and in this case the US Navy, an officer and an enlisted person (sailor) cannot be romantically involved. It is to protect both parties, as one of them could be said enlisted person's boss. This is separate from all the don't ask, don't tell stuff they finally got rid of.
Eric & Shane meet off base. The location is discreet and they do not exchange names. When they see one another again, there is more at stake. They both know it. Shane is an officer.
Shane has a lot to lose if they are caught. He also knows he has not met anyone like Eric, and might never again. This choice pulls at him until he just can't fight anymore.
This story tugs at your heartstrings. It made me feel for both characters. I was rooting for them right from the start. There is a little bit of everything in this book. The humor, the travel, the sparks flying.... just overall a great story. I give it a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
Bryant is in a rough spot. His sister is marrying the cousin to his ex. It really did not end well. He is hoping to take a decent date to help him cope with the whole thing.
Max lets himself get set up for a wedding weekend with a blind date. He is not sure what to expect. When he opens the door to a cutie that attracts him right away, he figures it will be worth it. Could the future be him?
This is a quick and sweet read. I was feeling all the feels. I even found someone in the book I wanted to reach in and kick! This book has some really good heat. It is easy to root for these two to be together. I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Wynn has been with Holden for a decade, and he puts up with quite a bit to be able to be with him. Holden has a very public job, and Wynn must stay private. This is a tricky subject for them.
Along comes some surprises, that were not what Wynn signed up for. He meets someone new that he is attracted to, and then begins the actual love triangle. This is where Wynn must choose what is really right for him and his future.
This story was a challenge for me. You get to where you root for the couple and then the surprises kick in and it all goes - boom! In this book we have many outside factors, and it made the story both fun and frustrating. Always love this author's stories, though. Keeps me entertained. I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
