Genre: LGBT Romance
Another hot and heartwarming read by Annabeth Albert. This series also touches on her Gaymers series, so it was lovely to see some of the characters from that series in here too.
The story revolves around Zach, a closeted, virgin, Navy SEAL who’s from a very religiously conservative family and Pike, an out and proud professor.
Zach is tired of dealing with the homophobia he witnesses every day while going through SEAL training and needs to get off base and find his own safe space for his down time. His commanding officer has a rental house that needs some repair and offers Zach a deal to live there while performing the repairs necessary to the place. The downside is that Zach doesn’t know anything about home repair.
In comes his restoration saving grace, Pike. Friends with Zach’s best friend, Pike’s looking for a place to live in San Diego after being offered a visiting professor gig at the University. Reluctantly, Zach offers him a place to stay, knowing the attraction he’s felt for Pike in the past.
The story weaves around Zach’s intense fear of being outed all the while falling in love with his roommate while Pike needs to figure out if dating a closeting man is worth the hassle and heartbreak.
Another lovely tale brought to life in the hands of Albert. Check it out if you like hot military men who are sexually confused but know how to give orders.
