Publisher's Summary

For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn't an exciting job...until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean's had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can't believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he's picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren't usually his thing, but Paul can't resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough...right up until they realize that Paul is Sean's father's commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It's not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted 24 years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he's caught with Sean, that's all over. He has to choose - stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

    "Very Very Enjoyable"

    I started this book and stoped before I should have so days later when I decided to go back I couldn't stop listening . I knew I wanted to finish but didn't expect it to turn out so good. Really sweet and hot love story. Worth the credit. Narration was excellent.

    "Gently Paced Steamy Military Romance"

    A May-September forbidden romance between a Naval Captain and commander of a base and the college age son of a man in his command had me plenty intrigued. I already liked the author and the narrator's works so anchors away.

    Just Drive ended up being a contemporary piece that progressed gently and had a steady and simple plot. It was a fast attraction and that was the easy part. Finding a way to be together was the entire romantic conflict because according to Navy regs. If they are caught, its a career destroyer for both Paul and Sean's dad.

    Just Drive was a slow mover and the reader/listener has to pay attention to the real connection between this pair. Paul opens up about his past and where he screwed up some meaningful relationships and his issues after a pretty bad carrier landing crash. Sean talks a little, too, and tends to be the voice of reason for the pair even if he's the younger one. I enjoyed seeing this pair together and hoped they'd find a way to be a couple though I was pretty sure what had to happen to achieve it and I was right.

    This ended up being a rather tricky story for me. I liked it and even enjoyed it for the most part, but there were also a couple issues for me. While I loved this pair together, I felt that the story was padded out by the sex scenes and monologues on the part of both men repeating the same thoughts. It was already a story without a lot of elements and had simple connections between a limited cast of characters so it bogged down for me a bit in the middle as it went back over the same ground.
    Then, there is a point where Sean is pushed too hard and he breaks. He goes on a diatribe to his dad that would make a fifteen year old sit up and take notes for future reference. It wouldn't have been so bad, but its paired with a mental diatribe, too. The result is that it altered how I perceived him as an adult character or should I say, I struggled to see him as an adult after that. So, to be clear, it wasn't his feelings or the situation, but just something about his monologue and the additional rant that took me there.

    This leads me to pull a one eighty and say that the author addressed some issues that military folk face whether it is their career getting in the way of relationships or military dependents having to sacrifice right along with the one in the service. I thought this was a good thing to layer with this romance to give it depth.

    As always when I pick up an audio book narrated by Nick J. Russo, I easily engaged with the story and his storytelling. His alternate voices and those of the surrounding cast of characters, attention to emotion, and tone of the writing was spot on.

    All in all, I enjoyed this story with a few minor niggles. The author's attention to setting, situation, and chemistry was good stuff. I would recommend this for those who enjoy a gently paced, spicy m/m Contemporary Romance.

    "What a good book!!"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was great and it was a great story line. It never got boring or lost my attention. As a matter of fact it's one of the few books I have binge listened to.

    "Great Story"

    Although first person narratives are not my favorites, I am partial to military stories, as my ex-husband was A Vietnam Vet , and I lived through PTSD, and learned first-hand what DADT can do to a military man. These characters were strong and well-developed, and the plot was believable. I really enjoyed it.

    "could not predict the outcome of the book. Perfect"

    such a great book to listen to on the way to work , although you do have to wait in the vehicle in order to get out. the characterization and the inflection of the narrator was way too good.

    Any additional comments?

    There is no manufactured drama, no fake angst. The men are amazing together, yet the relationship seems doomed from the start because it breaks all the rules. Maybe some rules are meant to be broken. ...
    The story is pretty steamy and definitely not slow burn but the pace of the story is a bit on the slow side.

    "Narrator was Boss"

    I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks. This storyline was great. Absolutely could not put this one down. However, the narrator was phenomenal. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is by far the BEST book I have ever listened to in regards to narration.

    "Loved It"

    This was a great story! I love the slow burn of the development of the relationship. I even like better the epilogue that helps to round out the ending instead of just ending the story. Definitely a MUST listen.

    "LA Witt at her best!"

    This is LA Witt at her best! Writing about hot men in the military! But – also making tough decisions and acknowledging the difficult position the military places on most people/relationships.

    From the beginning our two MCs find one another hot and begin their relationship – which I love. At first it’s just physical but then it quickly becomes something more. There are a lot of hot smexy times in this book but some really tender and loving ones as well.

    We get a unique (ish) situation in that Sean, the younger (by over 20 years) is the more “toppy” when it comes to they physical side of things but Paul is no passive being. He’s older, but still has a bit of that “crazy fighter pilot” thing going on, so he doesn’t actually “act” his age. This was a nice contrast to Sean, who is definitely older than his years and who keeps Paul grounded.

    This book felt a lot like LA Witt’s Conduct Unbecoming series – which I loved. Though we are past DADT, Paul and Sean can’t be together – still – because of the Navy. Both men very realistically deal with their circumstances in the military and this – for me – was the best part of the story because it felt very real.

    Paul is by far the more “fleshed out” character in the story. Sean is still a bit of an enigma – if I have any complaints it’s that I wish we knew more from Sean’s POV and that our MCs spent more time together in non-sexual situations.

    (There is a lovely and ooey gooey epilogue that I loved, and that gave us hope – BUT – I thought it was kind of ironic that Sean mentions how tight Paul and Sean’s dad had become – sharing stories, etc – when we still don’t really know what Paul and Sean do together besides f**k.)

    Witt is an excellent writer and her knowledge of the military is evident. I’ve definitely read other books by this author that I liked more, but this is still a really excellent book, despite some of the issues I mentioned. I’m definitely going to keep reading the series!


    4.5 of 5 stars (rounded up to 4.5 because the Epilogue is that good!)

    Audio

    Nick J Russo is one of my favorite narrators so I’ve run out of superlatives to use while describing his performances. He has a VERY easy voice to listen to, understands timing and emotion, does a great job giving age appropriate voices to the characters – including handling female voices well. I thought he chose a great voice for Sean – younger but not femme and a great, deep voice for Paul. Highly enjoyable and the best way to experience this story!

    5 of 5 stars

    Where does Just Drive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one rates very high, it's in my top 5.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could easily have listened to it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was as good as I remembered from reading the book and the narration was spot on.
