Rough Terrain

Off Base, the first in the Out of Uniform series, was my first military romance.  Although I didn’t love that story, I liked the writing and the premise of the series, and decided to stay with it.  I’m so glad I did.  Over the course of seven wonderfully disparate books, the series has been r ...

Better Not Pout

I’m one of those people who doesn’t start feeling Christmassy until a couple of weeks beforehand.  I hate the fact that the cards and decorations start appearing in the shops at the end of August; I won’t listen to a Christmas song until well into December if I can avoid it, and it’s not ti ...

Tight Quarters

The Out of Uniform series has been a reliable favorite of mine since the first book, Off Base.  That book introduced me to the whole military sub-genre in queer romance, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  I wasn’t wild about the last couple of books though, and thought the series was losing ste ...

Wheels Up

I’ve really enjoyed Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series. She’s done a great job linking the novels together while crafting fresh and special individual stories and romantic relationships in each one.  This time out her principals find themselves fighting their attraction and love for each ...

On Point

The Out of Uniform series by Annabeth Albert has had some interesting heroes to date – a virgin newish recruit in book one, Off Base, and a widowed active duty father in book two, At Attention. Now she turns her hand to a fairly common trope, that of best friends and roommates who are attracted to ...

At Attention

I admit, I’m a bit late to the SEAL romantic fiction fan club.  Because of my father’s job, I grew up around Marines and Navy SEALs and perhaps that’s why neither group ever held any special appeal to me.  But then I started reading Ms. Albert’s Out of Uniform series… and I’m feeling t ...

Off Base

Annabeth Albert is an author who first came to my attention with her Portland Heat series, centered around small shop owners of assorted varieties, and her #gaymer series which features a video game company. The last #gaymers book, Connection Error, featured a Navy SEAL (Ryan) and this new series Ou ...

Connection Error

Connection Error is the third book in the #gaymers series, which is both a fun and surprisingly heartrending look at gay gamers in romance. In this instalment, we follow two men from their first meeting, past several potentially relationship-ending issues (both mental and physical), and finally, fin ...

Baked Fresh

Baked Fresh is the second in Annabeth Albert’s Portland Heat series. I didn’t read the first book, but was eager to try the series as I’m a fan of the author. Unfortunately, this book fell flat for me. There’s a lot of potential with friends to lovers and tricky backstories. Still, it needed ...
