This newest installment in the Anchor Point series was excellent and probably my favorite so far. An enlisted man and an officer who start off as a hook up, but can’t the chemistry.
Besides all of the romance and steamy hot sex, I actually really enjoy reading about the ins and outs and politics of the Navy. I think it is really interesting and the author has either obviously done their homework or personally knows someone in the Navy.
One of the things I think I liked about this one above the rest was that there was no PTSD, no lingering physical issues from previous deployments and no alcohol or drug abuse. Don’t get me wrong- I love an angsty book with those things. But they were covered in previous books in the series and didn’t need to be done again. Instead we just have two men, on different career paths, but totally invested in their careers.
But it is because of those careers that they have to keep their relationship in the closet. Because while it is ok for two enlisted men to have a relationship or two officers to have a relationship, it is not ok for an enlisted man to have a relationship with an officer. I actually would have really liked to see them fight for that to be changed, but alas….
I felt really bad for Brent. He knew nothing but Navy. His father was Navy and he was groomed to join the Navy. He has zero hopes and dreams that didn’t involve the Navy. Who doesn’t have fantasies of what they would do if they could? Apparently not Brent.
And while Will isn’t necessarily looking to move up in the ranks, he does want to get his time in so he can retire fairly young with a good pension. But even he has some idea of what he would do if he wasn’t in the Navy.
And the sex scenes. Ho-ly. My gawd they were hot. The “sir” thing. The officer submitting to the enlisted. Basically all of it. Ms Witt can write a steamy scene.
Definitely pick this up. It is a good, fun read with very little angst and a good story.
