A Jeri Review: Off Base (Out of Uniform #1) by Annabeth Albert

Rating: 4 stars out of 5
off-baseI love Annabeth Albert’s books. I have read all of them-usually as soon as they come out. She does “series” and each series is totally different than the others. She definitely doesn’t stick to one trope only.
Off Base is the start of her next series, but there are charactersfrom her Gaymers series in this book as well. Namely, the two main characters. But if you haven’t read the previous series you won’t need an explantion of anything.
Zach is in the military and desperate to get out of on base housing. And roommates. When his superior offers him a free place to stay- with the caveat that he fix up the house so that they can flip and sell it, Zach jumps at the chance. One big problem- Zach has no idea about home renovation.
Pike had an unconventional upbringing and one of the things he and his mother did was renovate houses. So when Zach laments that he might be in over his head- Pike wants to help. He also wants to get out of where he is living and into something else. Perfect solution for all. Except for the attraction between the two. And the fact that Zach is a virgin.
 Watching Zach and Pike dance around each other was hot. I love a slow burn romance. I loved how Zach- this big tough military guy- was a virgin and totally inept at being a fixer upper. Yet Pike- apologetically gay and a bit of a gay stereotype- is right at home with sheetrock, tile and plumbing. And sex.
Zach was just so sweet. This poor guy was out of his element in so many ways but wanting to figure it all out. Pike was funny and a great fit with Zach. The whole opposites attract thing can be really hot.
This was a great book and I love that there are more to come. Hot military guys, Bring em on!
