Don’t ask, don’t tell had many implications in the lives of the soldiers who couldn’t tell. They had to hide a part of themselves from people they saw as family. That was particularly true for Alex.

Tristan had gotten burned on to many times. I don’t blame him for wanting to take a break from men, but when Alex walked into the bar, he just could not resist even though he tried. I mean if a guy like Alex pursued me, he could tempt me anytime.
Loved this story. Had tears in my eyes a few times. Love is Love.
Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault—he leads with his heart, not his head—and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar…
Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star—for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.
The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex’s walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex’s physical scars aren’t the ones that run the deepest.

I love to cruise. When I was single, i went on one with a girlfriend much like Kristen did. It was freeing and so much fun. Kind of like Vegas in a way. What happens on the cruise stays on the cruise. When an unwanted admirer is near, hockey heartthrob Pasha is there to rescue her. Luckily she doesn’t recognize him, but before long, he realizes that they have a connection and he really doesn’t want her to know it. What starts as a friendship, turns into more. I was so upset at him for not telling her. I could tell the secret would come out. When it does, I could really feel her hurt. I love when a story is so well written that it can make me feel what the character is feeling at that moment.
