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 was really looking forward to reading this book! The way Ben and Maddox were in the last book with Dylan. I knew it was going to be an interesting read! And it was!

The beginning of this book draws you in. There was so much action going on. And right away you could feel the connection Ben and Maddox had for each other. And at the same time you could feel all the anxiety they both had too! They were really struggling with their feelings for each other!

This book was a little on the deep side. I wasn’t expecting that. Lots of angst going on. For a couple that knows each other so well… they were really disconnected. I felt that if they had just sat down and talked. They wouldn’t have had so many up’s and downs. They wouldn’t have assumed so many things. I felt there was a lot of undue angst going on with them. And that was the hard part for me in this book. All the back and forth.

I loved them as a couple. But I felt Ben’s hang ups about relationships really put a strain on everything. And I mean everything not just with Maddox. With his family too. He has a hard time forgiving and letting go. And that was his biggest downfall.

I loved the ending of this book! It was really perfect! Ben really stepped it up and showed Maddox the big grand gesture! I knew Ben wanted it too. He just had a lot to work out personally to fully give himself to Maddox.

I loved loved loved how the author put little details about Oceanside (where I happen to live!!) and just place’s all around San Diego! It’s the little details in books that make the difference.
