|Maddox and Ben are on a mission that goes wrong for them. They are SEALS who are also roommates. Ben is very open about his sexuality but Maddox is more lowkey. Before being deployed Ben had set up an encounter that Maddox enjoyed but made their situation weird for Maddox. They have been trying to get back on an even keel since then. Now during recovery they have the opportunity to see if they can make a relationship work for them.
I enjoyed these characters. I liked the main story line. The flashbacks worked well as they fleshed out this story and told us what we needed to know. I liked that the main sticking point for the men was not staying in the closet but deciding if they could move on to the future with different dreams. I will read more of this series.
