I will just say that I love this author's voice. Her writing style is very similar to how I think and compose stories, so it is very easy for me to get pulled into her world. I love the humor and the descriptions, there is just enough angst to make me go "yeah" and relate.
I am a bit of a masochist, so when Christian would react to Kevin or have a choice to make, I could completely understand his mindset.
What I think was so good was how realistic the homosexuality in the military seemed. I have no reference, but the angst, fear, hatred, and pride seemed actuate. I always hate m/m books that make gays in the military seem completely acceptable within ranks. I especially loved how the author dealt with Kevin's need to remain in-charge of his "outness" with his men.
I think that there was more emotional substance in this one compared to the other, which might be due to a sophistication of writing style. The first two books, while excellent, had a bit of built in conflict that the storyline could simply be written out. This one to me, dealt a bit deeper into the male psychology and how to make this type of relationship work. There is plenty of angst, don't get me wrong, but this seemed to be more of a character sketch of two emtionally immature imperfect men finally finding their way in their own skin.
That being said, I also want to say that there is not a whole lot of explicit sex like you see in m/m books. There is still hot sexy time, but it seems more like their passion and love igniting because it can not be contained than as a replacement for plot.
Very beautiful story and Christian will just break your heart. You might need a hanky.
While I had to suspend disbelief as to how much one night spent together hunted both Christian and Kevin (simply as to the degree of how much it affected them both - I would of course had no problem believe that one can have memorable one night stand), once I got over it, story was lovely.
I really loved the tension between the guys when they were trying to reconnect with each other and I liked that tension was based on nothing else but who they were as people. I really liked that supposed misunderstanding between them did not grow into idiotic break up.
The first surprise is that the author doesn't linger on the sexual aspect of that night, actually we will not be part of that; we know Kevin and Christian shared a bed, and that was very good for both of them, but we don't read about it. Six years later, Christian is outed at his work place, but I saw that almost as a liberation for Christian; forced out of the closet, now Christian has the freedom to pursue his only true love, Kevin. Six year later Christian is still thinking at Kevin, carrying around a memento of that night like it is the only thing linking him to his sanity.
A chance encounter with Kevin pushes Christian to almost force Kevin to a meeting, and Kevin will have the possibility to see that Christian is not the same man he met before; Christian is now ready to a relationship, and even if Kevin wasn't thinking that, it's exactly what Kevin also wants.
Even if Kevin didn't forget that night with Christian, I have the feeling he wasn't so hung up to it like Christian; Kevin went along with his life, also forced by a tragic event, and had other not important affairs. While Christian was thinking to Kevin like his only true chance at love, I have the feeling Kevin remembered Christian like a lost chance, but not something he was to pursue. Realizing that he was such an important piece in Christian's life, makes him reconsider their relationship.
