It's been eight years since the teenage Dylan followed Apollo around like a lovesick puppy, and it's time he showed Lieutenant Hard-to-Please that he's all man now - an adult who's fully capable of choosing responsibility over lust. He can handle Apollo's muscular sex appeal, but Apollo the caring father? Dylan can't afford to fall for that guy. He's determined to hold out for someone who's able to love him back, not someone who sees him only as a kid brother.
Apollo is shocked by the intensity of his attraction to Dylan. Maybe some no-strings summer fun will bring this former SEAL back to life. But the combination of scorching desire and warm affection is more than he'd expected, and the emotion between them scares him senseless. No fling lasts forever, and Apollo will need to decide what's more important - his past or his future - if he wants to keep Dylan in his life.
Book two of the Out of Uniform series.

Wonderful! Perfect narration!
Sigh. This is just what I needed! I’d been in a bit of a slump – either the books weren’t hitting me right or they were too angsty or too short or too silly or… But this one was Just Right!
Annabeth Albert is fast becoming one of my top-tier-favorite authors. I’ve yet to be disappointed and I’m really enjoying this series (as I’d LOVED the gaymers series from which this is a spin-off).
Things that pinged my radar: Hot, alpha, military man with a tremendous soft side and a great father to boot. Equally hot, younger guy with confidence coming out his ears and determined to do the right thing – whether it’s in his personal or professional life. (Men who like kids – so, so sweet!)
While I worried for awhile that the pining would get to me, I realized that Apollo had been deeply in love and that needed to be honored. I did wish he’d have cut the crap a bit earlier than he did – but – I loved how Dylan handled it. He didn’t settle for second best and he knew his own heart enough to ask for what he wanted.
As for the hot times – Whoooeee. So. Hot. Lots of dirty talk and sex in front of a mirror! Way, way, way smokin’! But the feels were there, too. There was definitely an emotional connection that went beyond the physical.
So… all in all this just hit the spot for me. Hot. Sweet. Touching. Great writing. Fantastic!
(And these covers.... YOWZA! So HOT!)
Cooper North is an excellent narrator. His voice is really well suited to the younger Dylan. He doesn’t do a lot of accents or anything to make the various characters unique, and that is a bit disappointing.
I didn’t love his version of Apollo – only because I kind of had an idea of what he sounded like in my head and it was something more deep and rumbly. He did a nice job of making him sound “older” and you could always tell who was speaking.
However, Cooper North is good with emotion and timing and is very easy to listen to. This is definitely a great way to enjoy this story and though it wasn’t exactly as I’d have wanted it, it was still very satisfying.
Overall 4.5 of 5 stars
