Book Synopsis: Petty Officer Bacon, a navy SEAL and ace sharpshooter, has been on the front lines of more than his fair share of dangerous ops. Yet when a minor injury relegates him to the beta team, he’s tasked with what may be his riskiest assignment yet: the silver fox journalist he’s babysitting is the hottest, most charismatic man he’s ever encountered.
Award-winning journalist Spencer Bryant may have been named one of Pride magazine’s most eligible bachelors of the year, but he’s not looking to change his relationship status. He’s a consummate professional who won’t risk his ethics or impeccable reputation by getting involved with a source. Even a sexy-as-hell military man. But while Spencer can resist his physical attraction to Bacon, he has less control over his emotions—especially when the mission goes sideways and the two men are trapped alone.
Getting out of the jungle alive turns out to be easy compared to facing the truth about their feelings for one another back in the real world. And whether or not they can build a future is a different story altogether.

This book was a slow start for me but it definitely picked up! I really enjoyed the dynamic between Spencer and Bacon. Even though there was an age gap. It was never an issue with them. The real issue with them was Spencer’s work. That was hard on Bacon.
“I’m asking, yes. Please. If what we have is real, then fight for that.”
Spencer wanted to be true to himself and write the story he felt would make a difference…. but he was letting his job make the decisions. And totally ignoring what his heart was telling him.
I felt Bacon went all in and jumped with both feet in with Spencer. He wanted it all. And in the end it bit him in the butt.
“I’m a SEAL. We don’t try. We do. And I do want to do this with you.”
I loved how there was nothing over the top between Spencer and Bacon. They both realized how much they wanted each other and went after it.
I loved them together!! The sex was spot on!! I loved how they both gave themselves to each other.
This was a good read! I can’t wait for the next book in this series!!

Teaser excerpt #1:
Bacon was hanging on to life by one index finger. Literally. One sore, overused finger was all that separated him and a plunge down the sheer cliff face. The desert sun had sweat rolling down his face, stinging his eyes.
“Come on, Bake. You’ve got this!” Curly called at him. He was already safely on the ridge, along with several other SEAL team members. This was the last step in a grueling training mission that had tried their stamina with a HALO jump followed by a long run over rough terrain and this final climb.
Teaser excerpt #2:
Bacon liked running, liked anything that got his body moving. Being still and alone with his thoughts was harder on him than any twenty-mile trek. And generally, he liked company, was never the sort to turn down being around people. But, he was trying hard not to like being around Bryant—getting too comfortable with the journalist seemed like a recipe for disaster. Who knew what would make it into his articles? And fuck this being on Team Bravo nonsense. Why the hell did he have to hang back on their next mission and babysit the reporter? He was still not over the LT assigning him this duty, and it didn’t matter how good a runner Spencer Bryant was, Bacon’s mood wasn’t improving.
