Blurb: For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.
After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.
One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.
With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.
Review: Jen reviewed this previously here.
I loved this audio. It had everything I liked and one thing I normally don’t -age difference- but that did not bother me here, at all. As a matter of fact, considering the phenomenal performance and narration by Nick J. Russo, I believe I actually preferred it. Nick does a fabulous job of keeping the voices of both Paul and Sean different enough that I never once had them mistaken nor had to wonder who was actually speaking. I’ve listened to a few of this narrator’s books and I have no doubt this was my favorite by him, thus far.
What I really loved was how well I could relate to Sean. My being an Army brat, compared to his Navy brat status, was if L.A. Witt reached into my brain and pulled out all of the BS associated with being a military dependent. Another amazing factor was that any and all angst was not based on any differences or complications between Paul and Sean, but because of Navy regulations forbidding them to associate. The heart wants what the hearts wants, and no matter what any regulations say, the heart usually wins. In this case, it got close.
This is an amazing story L.A. Witt, with great characters, a believable plot, and a fabulous performance by Nick J. Russo. You cannot go wrong with the audio, highly recommended.
Overall Impression: I loved it!
