Never fall for your best friend…
Pushing thirty, with his reenlistment looming, decorated navy sniper Maddox Horvat is taking a long look at what he really wants in life. And what he wants is Ben Tovey. It isn’t smart, falling for his best friend and fellow SEAL, but ten years with Ben has forged a bond so intimate Maddox can’t ignore it. He needs Ben by his side forever—heart and soul.
Ben admits he likes what he’s seen—his friend’s full lower lip and the perfect muscles of his ass have proved distracting more than once. But Ben’s still reeling from a relationship gone to hell, and he’s not about to screw up his friendship with Maddox, too.
Until their next mission throws Ben and Maddox closer together than ever before, with only each other to depend on.
Amazing! I did not read the first two books in this series, but I still immensely enjoy book three.
The feelings that this book brought out in me was entirely overwhelming, Maddox (Mad) is a very deep person who always brings calm and brings a sense of purpose. When he meets up with circumstances that he can’t handle on his own, his only option is to depend on his best friend and roommate. With both of them left to help each other, their bond is all that keeps them going.
Ben is a conceited and arrogant man, he is a Navy SEAL. But he is very dedicated man who lives for his team and his family, Mad falls into both categories. They have been friends since buds and Ben has been living with him for two years. Ben is solid in their friendship but when what brought them together no longer holds them that way he goes off the deep end.
This is a story of how true friendship can turn to true love, but it is never easy. Life has a way of blending the good and the bad into making us who we are as a person, the past never really goes away. So when these two try to have a life together as more than just friends, life and history come back to make them struggle and fight for what they want. I loved the realism that this story portrayed, how the road to happiness is not smooth but bumpy with the personal feelings to overcome.
