Blog Tour w/Review - Off Campus Set-Up
 
 
Title: Off-Campus Setup
Author: Maria Vickers
Genre: M/M College Romance
Release Date: March 7, 2018
 
 
 
 
 
Levi Cox left it all behind to go to school in California, but nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he gets there. Between the university screwing up his living arrangements, the weird meddling old woman who runs the boarding house, and the fellow student who instantly catches his eye, life in Cali is more than he expected, and he isn’t sure he’s ready for any of it. College was supposed to be an adventure, but this might be more than Levi can handle. 
 
Nathan Orion wants to have fun. That’s what he lives for and it's exactly what his college years are supposed to be about. He’s happy with living the single life and being carefree…that is until the new student at his grandmother’s boarding house crashes into his life. Now he’s been recruited to show the new guy around, and if Nathan has his way, it won't be just on-campus.
 
Will there be more, or is this only an illusion? Two men thrown together, not expecting anything, but possibly finding so much more than an off-campus setup.

Prologue
 
Levi
 
I remembered everything very clearly. The first time we met, our first kiss, the first time we were discovered in the same bed by a nosey grandmother with bright yellow hair, and then the fallout when I realized everything was nothing more than a wishful fantasy that was never supposed to come true. 
 
And now I as scanned this room to make sure nothing got left behind, I realized how much I’d changed and how far I’d come. My imaginary world exploded, leaving me shell shocked and pissed off. 
 
This wasn’t the first time I’d fallen prey to feelings, wasn’t the first time I’d been hurt, but it would be the last. 
 
I took a step out of the room and closed the door behind me. This part of my life was now over, and a new one had just begun.

Nathan
 
Life as I knew it had disappeared. Poof. Gone without a trace. And any other of those sayings people tended to overuse. 
 
It was my own fault really. I should have expected it, should have seen it coming, but I hadn’t. And now everything had changed. Good or bad. I didn’t know yet. Should I be thanking her or blaming her? Both maybe? 
 
As I closed the door on the small space I’d called my bedroom for the past few years, I realized for the first time I didn’t know what I was going to do or what would happen tomorrow…and oddly enough, that thrilled me.
 
 
 
 
 
Off-Campus SetupOff-Campus Setup by Maria Vickers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Levi is finally getting to pursue his dream. He has arrived at college with a plan. Until he finds he may not be able to live where he thought. Now he has to hurry or go back home.

Nathan knows it is time to grow up. He has not looked forward to living the life his parents have chosen. He wants to choose his future. When he and Levi crash into one another it is a jaw dropping, eye opener. Will the secrets come out and change the course?

Sweet and tender, this story starts out slow and picks up steam. These characters are learning to become the young adults they know they can be. What they find is they can be stronger as a team. Navigating emotions are always hard, it helps to have someone in your corner.

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing and after she became disabled in 2010, she decided to use writing as her escape. She believes that life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances.
 
From a young age, she has always loved books and even dreamed of being an author when she was younger. Growing up in the Navy, she used to weave tales for her siblings and her friends about anything and everything. And when she wasn't creating her own stories, she had a book in her hand. They transported her to another world. She hopes that with her books, her readers have the same experience and that they can relate to her characters. 
 
Getting sick changed her life forever, but it also opened doors for her that she thought would always be out of reach.

CROSSWINDS: The Air Force's Setup in Vietnam
CROSSWINDS: The Air Force's Setup in Vietnam - Earl H. Tilford Like Clodfelter in "The Limits of Airpower," Tilford argues that the air force has been slower than any other service to honestly evaluate and learn from its conduct in the Vietnam War. He also shows that the popular notion about politicians being to blame for rendering the air war ineffective is bunk.

He examines the overall air war rather than focusing exclusively on bombing of the north, and provides a cursory comparison of the Vietnam and Gulf air wars. Tilford served as an intelligence officer in the Vietnam War, earned a PhD in history from George Washington University, and was a professor of military history at the air force's Command and Staff College. So far I've found the scholarship in this book to be superior to that in his other works, but here I think he pretty much nails it. Bottom line:

"The Air Force position was that if the United States could fight and win the big war, it could always win any smaller war. Thus, a separate body of doctrine or specifically designed strategy for little wars was unnecessary. Even the weapons that would be used in big war could be used in lesser conflicts. 'Today's nuclear weapons,' wrote Loosbrook, 'coupled with our determination to use them if needed, can take the profit out of aggressive war, big or little.' Nuclear weaopns were, for the Air Force, the paramount means for fighting wars and the possibility of their use in any conflict was not to be discounted."
