Publisher's Summary

Never fall for your best friend....

Pushing 30, 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 10 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.

This is book three in the Out of Uniform series. Don't miss the first two books:

Book one: Off Base
Book two: At Attention

stalking skills

This is what i come upon when i start stalking a narrator. J. F. Harding is one of the best narrators out there. and on top of that. Ifind this gem of a book out there. A story about the love between two men. Best friends. navy seal buddys. And roomates.
I know this is book 3 in a series. but it didnt matter at all.
It only got me thinking that i might need to look into Annabeth Albert some more. This girl can write.

Gotta love these guys...

...because they're crazy. Another good listen of a book I enjoyed reading. And this one was a more enjoyable listen than a read. J. F. Harding did a wonderful job narrating Ben and Maddox's story. He isn't the best at doing female voices, but that's always tough for a man with a deeper voice, so I can overlook that. In general, his was a fine performance, well read in a strong, pleasantly masculine voice well suited to the two main characters. Another win for a good author, and for this narrator as well.

Another winner!

Hearing how these two went from best friends to lovers was heartbreaking at times. Maddox is looking at his life and realizes that he has to make changes yet he is worried on how Ben will take to these changes. As these two take you on a wild emotional wild, you find yourself cheering then wanting to smack someone on the back of the head to get them to wake up. Another great book in the series and I enjoyed the glimpses into the lives of the past couples.

I love this series and this is my fav so far!

I. LOVED. This. Book!

First, I love the series and it’s original spinoff. Though each book is absolutely a stand alone, you get a little bit “more” if you read them in order – first the #gaymers series then the Out of Uniform series.

Ben, we’ve met before, and he isn’t as loveable as some of the other characters. He sleeps around a lot and doesn’t seem to catch a clue that Maddox is so obviously in love with him.

(Little warning, there is a ménage scene in this that involves Maddox and Ben and someone else who doesn’t seem to mean anything later – just in case you hate that stuff.)

Maddox is so, so, so wonderful. He’s sweet, sensitive, caring – and built like a linebacker! I love that! I loved how torn he was between doing what was right for himself versus what was right for his family or for Ben.

The smexy times are – as always- smokin’. Annabeth can seriously write some hot chemistry and these two sizzle! Maddox opens up and Ben gets downright naughty with the dirty talk!

I was almost near tears when our two MCs are injured – and that is what finally drew them together, I think. So, most of the story is really these two guys learning how to really be in a relationship together after years of friendship. There is still relationship angst and other issues to overcome, but a lot of this is these two guys – being adults – and dealing with a new “reality”.

This is hands down my favorite in the Out of Uniform series – these two guys just really touched me, Maddox especially. I can’t wait for the next one!

I can’t recommend the series or this book enough – highly recommended! 6 of 5 stars


Audio

JF Harding is a relatively new to me narrator. I’ve listened to the Kage series and of course the Cut and Run series but I couldn’t have told you who narrated those audiobooks. (They’re not my favorite series and I guess I just wasn’t paying attention ;) He did a FANTASTIC job with this! He’s got excellent timing and an understanding the material. He uses great voice differentiation and accents and I was really taken in by his interpretation of the writing.

I loved reading this but I think listening is the even better way to experience this!

Highly recommended!

Author just keeps improving.

My third book in this series. Each one keeps getting better. Better character development, personalities, erotic parts, narrator, all better. Can't wait for number 4. Thanks

Best so far...

This is the best book in the series so far. The story was great and the narration was excellent. The narration is my pet peeve. A great story can be destroyed instantly with a bad narrator. Hats off to J.F. Harding. He’s now at the top of my list along with Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan. Side note for audible if they look at the comments...I’ve learned the hard way (I’ve purchased hundreds of books) and even the best authors don’t matter in this medium. I base my purchase on the narrator. It’s a make or break.

Starts Well and Then Fizzles

Loved the first part of the book. The action and unknown of the beginning of the story. Unlike others I enjoyed the flashbacks. I thought the format and story line was excellent. Then the guys get back and it really became boring. I didn't enjoy the story line from there. I get it but it was like two different books put together. I didn't feel like the two parts flowed well together. Also the change in character for Ben was too much. It just didn't fit. The flow of the relationship just didn't work in this second part.

I am just not sure about this series at all. I haven't enjoyed it as much as I had hoped. Still, I'm trying to keep going with the series. I keep hoping each book will be the one that breaks the 3.5 barrier.

Wonderful Surprise

Another audio book to add to my collection. As always JF Harding did an amazing job with bringing these characters to life. Story has all necessary elements for great erotica.

Mixed feelings

I enjoyed the story and I love J.F.Harding, but I felt a disconnect between Maddox and Ben. I felt Ben was always only trying to please Maddox and never really felt he was as into Maddox as much as Maddox was into him. Even up to the ending I didn’t feel that overwhelming happiness that I like when the two heroes get their HEA. But I was glad to read their story.
