On his first day teaching math at a community college, Chris Reuben gets an unexpected and unwelcome blast from the past: one of his students is his former shipmate...and ex-boyfriend.
Justin Hayes isn't looking for a second chance when he signs up for his ex's algebra class. All he wants is a passing grade and maybe a shot at mending fences with the man he loved - and hurt - while they were deployed three years ago.
Pain, guilt, and bitterness aren't the only lingering feelings, though, and even if three years is enough to melt the ice between them, they've already put their careers on the line for each other once. Can Justin convince Chris that what they had is worth risking their careers and hearts again?

Ex equals Is a romantic story about two Navy men who have to hide their love. The book brings to light the turmoil and fear that permeate many stories of homosexual love.
The story gets its title, "Ex Equals" because one man gets a promotion; Thus they are no longer of equal rank. That's when the pressure to hide gets to be too much and one man chooses his career over love. So they go separate ways.
The title applies again when they meet in an algebra class. Remember solving for x= from your old math days! L.A. Witt's cleverness makes the story entertaining, as well as heartwarming.
Trip Warren does a great job narrating and the short story moves at a good pace. It's an easy listening experience that makes you care about the characters and hope they solve their problems. I'd like to hear more books read by him.
