1) A bit heavy on the family drama for my tastes, with a surprisingly quick jump into the sex, but well-written (like all of Witt's stuff), with two hot, intriguing, middle-aged men.
2) LA Witt is an accomplished, professional writer. Her plot is absorbing and genuine, the characters were fresh and realistic, and her writing style is smooth and engaging. I only scored her down for her use of Navy jargon without explanation as it threw me out of the story early on. It was a minor bump, quickly forgotten, as I was soon absorbed in a story of two wounded me coming together in trust and love. A very satisfying read.

Once a fearless fighter pilot, Commander Travis Wilson is now confined to a desk. It’s been eight years since the near-fatal crash that grounded him, and it still rules his life thanks to relentless back pain.
Lieutenant Commander Clint Fraser almost drowned in a bottle after a highly classified catastrophe while piloting a drone. His downward spiral cost him his marriage and kids, but he’s sober now and getting his life back on track. He’s traded drones for a desk, and he’s determined to reconcile with his kids and navigate the choppy waters of PTSD.
Clint has been on Travis’s radar ever since he transferred to Anchor Point. When Clint comes out to his colleagues, it’s a disaster, but there’s a silver lining: now that Travis knows Clint is into men, the chemistry between them explodes.
It’s all fun and games until emotions get involved. Clint’s never been in love with a man before. Travis has, and a decade later, that tragic ending still haunts him. Clint needs to coax him past his fear of crashing and burning again, or their love will be grounded before takeoff.
