Publisher's Summary

After trading the barracks for a fixer-upper rental, Navy SEAL Zack Nelson wants peace, not a roommate - especially not Pike, who sees things about Zack he most wants to hide. Pike's flirting puts virgin Zack on edge. And the questions Pike's arrival would spark from Zack's teammates about his own sexuality? Nope. Not going there. But Zack can't refuse.

Pike Reynolds knows there won't be a warm welcome in his new home. What can he say? He's an acquired taste. But he needs this chance to get his life together. Also, teasing the uptight SEAL will be hella fun. Still, Pike has to tread carefully; he's had his fill of tourists in the past, and he can't risk his heart on another, not even one as hot, as built - and, okay, yeah, as adorable - as Zack.

Living with Pike crumbles Zack's restraint and fuels his curiosity. He discovers how well they fit together in bed...in the shower...in the hallway...He needs Pike more than he could have imagined, yet he doesn't know how to be the man Pike deserves.

Book One of the Out of Uniform series

Critic Reviews

"Narrator Tyler Stevens captures Zack's agonizing dilemma as he wavers between coming out and bowing to family expectations. He voices Zack as a tough SEAL who struggles with his emotions. Pike comes across as a confident flirt with an unspoken fear of getting hurt. Stevens uses a slightly higher register for Pike and a vulnerable gruffness for Zack, which works well in their dialogue and bedroom scenes. Secondary characters from Zack's military and Pike's academic circles are differentiated and memorable. Stevens makes their courtship sweet and sexy." ( AudioFile)

Disappointment

The narrator's was annoying. I wish he would have been able to change his voice up more between characters and the narration. Storyline was also abbot slow to start.

really very nice

this series I really liked. I had started with the last book in the Gaymers series "Connection Error". You will need that one to know what some of the characters are. I can not wait till the next book in this series.

Great

This was a great book, at least for me. I can relate to so much to both characters. I'll admit, it was a little tough to get into at the very beginning. However, I kept listening and I am glad that I did.

Off Base

the story line is believable and has a credible story line. The characters are well developed and the narrator has an even flow of reading. I've heard several stories narrated by Stevens and enjoy what he puts into his reading.
I would definitely recommend this story for all gay romance readers.

Cute

This is a story of Pike and Zachary both connected thanks to mutual friends but didn't really bounded will. For Pike is out and proud and Zach to scared to come out. However they come to live together and help renovate a house which leads to feeling coming out. Even though Zack has been hiding his feelings for guys a long time Pike and him start a secret relationship that stays safely in the house. However of course that leads to keeping things under the rug which will come out sooner than later. I enjoyed both boys and my heart when out to Zack who though a military guy keeps things to himself thanks to his very Christian upbringing. Pike was just funny though he can become very serious when it comes to his fury babies. Both guys grow so much in this by getting confident in themselves and believing that what they was doing was the right thing. Plus I got to see my guys from the gaymers trilogy and having them give advice and just be great supporters and tell them when their being idiots. The narrator was not my favorite his voice just didn't fit how I thought the boys where supposed to sound so that bummed me a bit.

Really like this series

I really enjoyed reading this series, more than I thought I would, now enjoying listening. This is a surprisingly good coming out story, with engaging characters and a more or less realistic storyline. Zack's fear of coming out and its consequences could have been better and more deeply expressed, especially in Zack's experience with his parents, though considering the probable strictures of the format and the focus of the story, it was handled quite well despite its only being lightly examined.

The narration by Tyler Stevens was quite good as well, though I didn't particularly care for the voice he gave to Apollo. Was that a hint of Brooklyn I heard in the voice of a native Californian of Greek heritage? Oh, well. Not enough of a foible to take away a star. The story was otherwise read quite well. All in all, a good listen.

Great start to the series

By now I've read and listened to this several times. This is my favorite series by Annabeth Albert by far. Great start to the series. If you like military romance this is a book for you and even if not give it a try because the writing is great.
