Publisher's Summary

After trading the barracks for a fixer-upper rental, Navy SEAL Zack Nelson wants peace, not a roommate - especially not Pike, who sees things about Zack he most wants to hide. Pike's flirting puts virgin Zack on edge. And the questions Pike's arrival would spark from Zack's teammates about his own sexuality? Nope. Not going there. But Zack can't refuse.

Pike Reynolds knows there won't be a warm welcome in his new home. What can he say? He's an acquired taste. But he needs this chance to get his life together. Also, teasing the uptight SEAL will be hella fun. Still, Pike has to tread carefully; he's had his fill of tourists in the past, and he can't risk his heart on another, not even one as hot, as built - and, okay, yeah, as adorable - as Zack.

Living with Pike crumbles Zack's restraint and fuels his curiosity. He discovers how well they fit together in bed...in the shower...in the hallway...He needs Pike more than he could have imagined, yet he doesn't know how to be the man Pike deserves.

Book One of the Out of Uniform series

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Tyler Stevens captures Zack's agonizing dilemma as he wavers between coming out and bowing to family expectations. He voices Zack as a tough SEAL who struggles with his emotions. Pike comes across as a confident flirt with an unspoken fear of getting hurt. Stevens uses a slightly higher register for Pike and a vulnerable gruffness for Zack, which works well in their dialogue and bedroom scenes. Secondary characters from Zack's military and Pike's academic circles are differentiated and memorable. Stevens makes their courtship sweet and sexy." (AudioFile)

    "really very nice"

    this series I really liked. I had started with the last book in the Gaymers series "Connection Error". You will need that one to know what some of the characters are. I can not wait till the next book in this series.

    "Disappointment"

    The narrator's was annoying. I wish he would have been able to change his voice up more between characters and the narration. Storyline was also abbot slow to start.

    "Great"

    This was a great book, at least for me. I can relate to so much to both characters. I'll admit, it was a little tough to get into at the very beginning. However, I kept listening and I am glad that I did.

    "Off Base"

    the story line is believable and has a credible story line. The characters are well developed and the narrator has an even flow of reading. I've heard several stories narrated by Stevens and enjoy what he puts into his reading.
    I would definitely recommend this story for all gay romance readers.

    "Cute "

    This is a story of Pike and Zachary both connected thanks to mutual friends but didn't really bounded will. For Pike is out and proud and Zach to scared to come out. However they come to live together and help renovate a house which leads to feeling coming out. Even though Zack has been hiding his feelings for guys a long time Pike and him start a secret relationship that stays safely in the house. However of course that leads to keeping things under the rug which will come out sooner than later. I enjoyed both boys and my heart when out to Zack who though a military guy keeps things to himself thanks to his very Christian upbringing. Pike was just funny though he can become very serious when it comes to his fury babies. Both guys grow so much in this by getting confident in themselves and believing that what they was doing was the right thing. Plus I got to see my guys from the gaymers trilogy and having them give advice and just be great supporters and tell them when their being idiots. The narrator was not my favorite his voice just didn't fit how I thought the boys where supposed to sound so that bummed me a bit.

    "Loved Off Base"

    I was pleased with this audio story. The narrator did a great job distinguishing the different characters and portraying the characters feelings. I listened to the whole story in a single listen.

    "Sweat and hornyble "

    The right mix between sweat, sensitive, first love feelings between one guy outed and not his object of desire and fantastic well sex scene describing.
    Wonderfully narrated.

    "Great listen"

    I loved this book for a lot of reasons, the struggle with coming out in a world that doesn't invite it was very well done. I don't want to write any spoilers but I practically bawled with sympathy at the very real struggles for these characters that you really fall in love with!!
    There were a few cadence hiccups in the read which is why I only gave it four stars for performance but over all very well done!!
    If you are looking for a really heartfelt story about love over coming obstacles with a healthy dose of real world problems (though their resolutions are predictably in the characters favour of coarse) give this a listen. It was very engaging and I had a hard time turning it off to go to bed.

    "not the best"

    this book is my least favorite of the series, first I started off with book 2 then 3 those where great but this one was lacking in a way I can't put into words, I just wasn't invested in these characters. if you are new to this series don't read this one first.
