Book Title: Just Drive
Author: LA Witt
Series: Endgame #1
Release Date: December 6th, 2016
Genres: M/M Romance
For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

Just Drive is the first book in the new Anchor Point series by L.A. Witt. Taking place in Anchor Point, Oregon, Just Drive is nestled deep within the confines of Navy life and rules...

Paul Richards is a career Navy officer. Commanding Officer of the Adams Naval Air Station, he's been firmly out of the closet ever since the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell military rule. That being said, he still airs on the discreet side where his sexuality is concerned. Times have changed but it's still the military... One late night and long-past-due breakup with a current boyfriend, Paul hails a local cab. The cabbie is young and very hot with his jet black hair with dark blue highlights. And he's easily half his age... but damn.

Sean Wright is a local college student, cabbie on the side, and career Navy brat. His father is a high ranking Navy-man and Sean has never stayed anywhere long enough to gain any semblance of roots. When a call comes in on any typical evening, his world is rocked when a hot forty-something guy steps into his back seat and instructs him to "just drive..."

The connection, albeit a bit unconventional was instantaneous for Sean and Paul. Granted, Paul was on the rebound, but Sean was more than willing to "take away the blues." If there's one thing L.A. Witt can write, it's hot hot hot man-on-man loving! Add the additional angst that Paul is Sean's father's Commanding Officer and the potential for court martial if caught and we've got ourselves a perfect forbidden romance MM love story.

Their connection was palpable and only grew with each meeting but it's only too late when they realize the fatal connection between father and boyfriend. If the military has nothing else, its deeply entrained in rules of conduct. So what's it going to be? A lifetime in the military without love? Or love without his one life goal- admiral. Because Paul can't have both. And it's not just career on the line. It's also Sean's father's career. So what's got to give? Career or love? Because he can't have both...

I look forward to the next installment in the Anchor Point series!

Advanced review copy received by Riptide Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn't lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. 

She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don't tell Lauren. And definitely don't tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut...
