Realistic military romance set round DADT. Excellent.

If you're a fan already then you won't be disappointed, if you've never read an L A Witt novel then you'll probably become one! I love LA Witts books and this was no exception. As always she nails the chemistry between her two main characters Eric and Shane, when they are together they sizzle and ooze ST, so the love scenes are hot and sensual but never gratuitous. Of course the military and it's attitude to homosexuality is at the centre of this story so we get the drama that gives the story some edgy moments and shows that although DADT has been repealed there are still many issues attached to being gay in the forces today and highlights how archaic and downright stupid some rulings are even in today's - so called - more tolerant era. A lovely side to the book are the vivid descriptions of Okinawa and all its attractions there's no doubt, the fact that Ms Witt has lived there, brings the Island to life in the way she writes about it and adds to the realism of the book. This is a real winner and I enjoyed every moment of it. Beautifully written and very relevant, I would put it high in her list up to now. Brilliant!
