Never fall for your best friend…
Pushing thirty, with his reenlistment looming, decorated navy sniper Maddox Horvat is taking a long look at what he really wants in life. And what he wants is Ben Tovey. It isn’t smart, falling for his best friend and fellow SEAL, but ten years with Ben has forged a bond so intimate Maddox can’t ignore it. He needs Ben by his side forever—heart and soul.
Ben admits he likes what he’s seen—his friend’s full lower lip and the perfect muscles of his ass have proved distracting more than once. But Ben’s still reeling from a relationship gone to hell, and he’s not about to screw up his friendship with Maddox, too.
Until their next mission throws Ben and Maddox closer together than ever before, with only each other to depend on.
Now, in the lonely, desperate hours awaiting rescue, the real challenge—confronting themselves, their future and their desires—begins. Man to man, friend to friend, lover to lover.
I have the feeling every book by Annabeth Albert is getting better and better. Since my start of reading gay romance title I love to read those where two guys fall in love who are a long time friends and colleagues. :3
I am really thirsty to read about the special tension and the relationship those couples have, because they are based on something I really appreaciate in pairings.
Annabeth Albert is able to capture your attention – from the first to the last page.
I really love the chemistry between Ben and Maddox and the tension, the caring is palpable. When both guys are in real trouble they reveal their feelings for each other … and the reader is within.
Both guys are totally understandable and the depths is amazing, none of them are boring, plain or dull. In fact they have so many layers you are thrilled to reveal them. :3
Besides the erotic tension and the hot scenes, the problems of feeling something for a friend, there are problems they are confronted with and it is so honest and believable that it doesn’t seem like a fictional work – but on the other hand it is full of suspense and therefore not boring. 🙂
This book gets 5 out of 5 stars. ❤
