Publisher's Summary

Their love is forbidden, but their hearts aren't listening to rules and regulations....
Lieutenant Dustin Strauss is a reformed man. No longer a 20-something hell-raiser, he's his SEAL team's new XO - and a man with a secret. Or seven. He's kept his bisexual identity under wraps for years, along with his kinky side and a fondness for the military-themed semi-anonymous hookup website Joe4Joe. His latest chat buddy is more than a sexy online distraction - they're taking their very not-safe-for-work relationship into real time.
Petty Officer Wes Lowe has a smart mouth, a take-charge attitude, and an uncanny ability for making things go boom. The life of an enlisted man isn't always enough to satisfy him, but one wild, no-questions-asked weekend with his online love comes close. When a transfer order comes in, Wes feels ready and centered. He'll make a good impression on his new SEAL team and keep his growing feelings for Dustin on the down low.
But as they log more time online and some very real emotions surface, Dustin and Wes struggle to pretend they're just a harmless fling. And when his commander introduces Dustin to his team's newest member, they're in for the shock of a lifetime...and a crushing disappointment: their difference in ranks means even a friendship without sexual contact could end their navy careers for good.
With their hearts on the line, Dustin and Wes may not survive their next mission, let alone find a way toward a future together.
This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you're looking for with an HEA/HFN. It's a promise!

JUST WOW, loved everything about this book

If you like a good MM book, a fan of contemporary military romance or just looking for a story that will push all your emotional buttons till they squeal- this is the book for you!

The narration was superb! i reat this book a week before it cam out on audio, and I had it pre-ordered already. while I was reaing I kept imagining how they would sound "live" and
and Greg Boudreaux did not let me down! he nailed their emotions, accents and just the feel of the book in his voice. it was a perfect narration to a wonderful book and i enjoyed it very much.

As the fourth book of the ‘Out Of Uniform’ series by the talented Annabeth Albert, it was no surprise I liked this book as much as I did. What captivates me about this book,Annabeth’s books in general, is her ability to write interesting, diverse and unique characters who feel alive so much you can almost touch them. I LOVED the connection Wes and Dustin have at the beginning of the book, after apparently having a six months friendship with sexual benefits online (I really want to read all the online chats they had before the story starts Annabeth! Don’t keep a girl in the dark here). I love a good Friends-to-Lovers story and this one really had the strong base on which to build that relationship on. That bond really shined throughout the book and was one of my favorite things about it. You can see them falling into lust, and later in love, with each other but also supporting one another through the hardships they face (Wes with his sick sister and Dustin with his struggle about his future and bisexuality).
That tenuous connection is tested in the real world very quickly were things are not as simple as they are online. Add to that the limitations and regulations of life in the army, dangerous operations and their own personal issues there is no wonder their road is anything but smooth. Wes and Dustin walk the fine line between getting what (and who) they want and losing their careers as well as finding themselves in court martial. Both have their family in mind and are torn between their heart’s desire and the responsibilities they have for the army and their loved ones. And there really isn’t any right or wrong, they both need to compromise and fight to be together.

And let’s not forget the physical connection between these two, I mean ya’ll gonn’a have to sit in an ice bucket when you read this book to stop the house from burning down. Not only are the characters interesting, but the sexual computability is out of this world crazy, and the kinky steamy elements of their sex life are not just an extra, but another dimension of who they are and their relationship. Every detail is exquisitely written and well researched in both the kinky bits and the military parts of the story. There is not a single detail I would change, this book just felt completely and utterly whole and ‘right'.

Love this struggle and the MCs ultimate commitment. I'll keep this one and come back and listen again in a while.

Greg Boudreau is great!
