No Flag, By Liz Borino


**This book contains Male/Male Relations**
For Mike and Will, “No Flag” meant “come home alive”, but will their love survive what happens next?
Captain Mike Kelley does not ignore his intuition, so when sexy bartender Will Hayes captures his heart, Mike embarks on a mission to win him over to a Domestic Discipline relationship. Will accepts with one caveat: Mike must promise not to renew his Army contract. Mike agrees, and they spend a year building a life together, getting married,
and starting a business.
Only days before their café’s grand opening, Mike receives news that threatens everything he and Will have built. The Army invokes the Stop Loss military policy to involuntarily extend his commission and send him back overseas. Will, left alone to cope with the café, must rely on the support of old friends who may be no longer be trustworthy. Through emails and Skype calls, Mike and Will keep their love and structure alive…until the day a horrific terrorist
attack occurs on Mike’s outpost.
Mike awakens in a hospital with a devastating injury and no his memory of the attack. As the only survivor, Mike’s memory may be the key to national security. Mike struggles to cope with his injury and Will struggles to support the man who always held him up. Both fear they have lost their previous relationship. Will has Mike back rather than a folded flag, but in the aftermath of war, can they rebuild the life they had before? Especially when those closest to them may not have their best interests at heart?
*Contains BDSM elements in the context of a loving relationship.*

I’m not sure if many of you know this, but I am prior military so when it comes to military books I just gobble them up!  With this book, it combined two of my favorite genres; M/M books and Military men.
When I started this book, I had a completely open mind on what to expect from it and I have to say that I was very pleased with this book.
I even recommended it to a friend of mine while I was still in the process of reading the story.
Right off the bat one thing that I did enjoy was that this book was more about the emotional aspect between the characters than anything else.  Now granted, Mike and Will do have a domestic discipline relationship but I enjoyed the fact that it didn’t over-take the whole story.  There were some things about the book that will drive you crazy!! Oh my gosh, Mike’s OCD is just off the wall crazy!  I don’t think I have ever met (or read) about anyone who is as bad as he is.
The characters in the book; Mike, Will and all the other characters, were all written very well in my opinion.  There was enough information given about them that made the story progress very well.
I liked how the author thought to include about Will’s friends and their concerns about the relationship that was taking place with Will and Mike.  That was a really good thing to add because not everyone understands those types of relationships.
The twists that happen during the ending of the book were just amazing!!!  I was on the edge of my seat while reading because the story was just that well written.
Overall, this is a complete MUST READ from me!!
