This novel stands alone in the Anchor Point series.
Second-class petty officers Dalton Taylor and Chris Ingram have been best friends since coxswain’s school. Now they’re stationed together in the Harbor Patrol Unit of NAS Adams. They’re content as friends, but secretly, they both ache for more. Neither makes a move, though; while Dalton is out and proud, Chris is closeted—even from his best friend.
Then another coxswain’s negligence nearly drowns Dalton. After a taste of how easily they could lose each other, neither man can keep his feelings hidden anymore, and it turns out love and sex come easy when you’re falling for your best friend.
Things aren’t just heating up between the friends-turned-lovers, though. The Navy is investigating the accident, and the Harbor Patrol chief isn’t going to let his star coxswain go down for dereliction of duty, even if saving him means throwing Dalton under the bus.
As the threats and gaslighting pile up, Chris and Dalton need each other more than ever—as shipmates, friends, and lovers. But if their chief prevails, the only way they can save their careers is to let each other go.
I voluntarily read an Advance Review Copy of this book through Netgalley. This story is about Dalton (who is openly gay) and Chris (who is gay but no one knows) who became fast friends after meeting in the Navy. They have secretly lusted after each other and until Dalton is almost killed in a senseless accident do they let their feelings for each other known. There is a lot of politics going on in the Navy, especially regarding Dalton’s accident, that draws them closer together. Chief’s Jackson and Curtis show there are still honorable men in the Navy. There is a lot of drama, blackmail by their Chief and a deep love developing between them. It is a good read and I would recommend this book.
