I had absolutely no idea what to expect when I started reading this book, as I have never read anything like it before…
It was so good! I can’t begin to describe how well written and flawless the story was.
Michaels, who has known he was gay since elementary school feels an undeniable attraction to his friend Sozio. The question is, does Sozio feel the same way? Or maybe more importantly, are they willing to put everything on the line for their relationship?
It was one of the best romances I have read it awhile. The characters and plot were perfect. If you want a book that has it all. Romance. Drama. Controversy. Did I mention drama? Then check out this book!
Some of the scenes you couldn’t make up, like when Sozio accidentally throws a knife into Michaels arm!
The end had me in tears. Especially when they mentioned their friend Kyle.
Loved it! Don’t miss out on this one.
Turner Michaels is an idealistic junior enlisted communicator that wants nothing more than to successfully execute his duties. After being transferred to a light armored reconnaissance unit in the middle of the Mojave Desert, the young U.S. Marine starts to feel a bit overwhelmed and out of place from his usual role of support – that is until he is reunited with his old friend Jace Sozio. Reconnecting with one another is simple, but neither of them could have imagined the intense yet awkward attraction that would grow between them. Though admitting these feelings to one another poses a dilemma for the men, as neither wants it to threaten their close friendship.
Taking things to a whole new level raises a number of other questions as well. First and foremost, would their peers accept them, or would they have to forever hide their relationship? And admitting their true feelings for one another is easier said than done. Their harsh supervisor is demanding and makes life miserable for the pair, and they also have a number of very good (though sometimes annoying) friends that make them question if they even need enemies. But with the help of their family and inspiring leaders the two will discover that loyalty and support are stronger than bigotry and misperception. Proving that the Corps indeed is a sacred brotherhood where men can trust one another with their very lives.
