After trading the barracks for a fixer-upper rental, navy SEAL Zack Nelson wants peace, not a roommate-especially not Pike, who sees things about Zack he most wants to hide. Pike's flirting puts virgin Zack on edge. And the questions Pike's arrival would spark from Zack's teammates about his own sexuality? Nope. Not going there. But Zack can't refuse. Pike Reynolds knows there won't be a warm welcome in his new home. What can he say? He's an acquired taste. But he needs this chance to get his life together. Also, teasing the uptight SEAL will be hella fun. Still, Pike has to tread carefully; he's had his fill of tourists in the past, and he can't risk his heart on another, not even one as hot, as built-and, okay, yeah, as adorable-as Zack. Living with Pike crumbles Zack's restraint and fuels his curiosity. He discovers how well they fit together in bed.in the shower.in the hallway. He needs Pike more than he could have imagined, yet he doesn't know how to be the man Pike deserves. Book One of the Out of Uniform series

"Zack Nelson sweats it out in Navy SEALS training, hoping no one discovers his hidden preference for guys. Then, a renovation project at his off-base housing brings Pike Reynolds and a chance at happily ever after for Zack. Narrator Tyler Stevens captures Zack's agonizing dilemma as he wavers between coming out and bowing to family expectations. He voices Zack as a tough SEAL who struggles with his emotions. Pike comes across as a confident flirt with an unspoken fear of getting hurt. Stevens uses a slightly higher register for Pike and a vulnerable gruffness for Zack, which works well in their dialogue and bedroom scenes. Secondary characters from Zack's military and Pike's academic circles are differentiated and memorable. Stevens makes their courtship sweet and sexy. C.A.
