“At Attention is a story of healing, of hope, of that rush of new attraction, of friendship, trust building, letting go, and realizing that you can’t control your heart even when you have binders and lists to control everything else in your life.” —Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
Lieutenant Apollo Floros can ace tactical training missions, but being a single dad to his twin daughters is more than he can handle. He needs live-in help, and he’s lucky a friend’s younger brother needs a place to stay. He’s surprised to see Dylan all grown up with a college degree…and a college athlete’s body. Apollo’s widowed heart may still be broken, but Dylan has his blood heating up.
It’s been eight years since the teenage Dylan followed Apollo around like a lovesick puppy, and it’s time he showed Lieutenant Hard-to-Please that he’s all man now—an adult who’s fully capable of choosing responsibility over lust. He can handle Apollo’s muscular sex appeal, but Apollo the caring father? Dylan can’t afford to fall for that guy. He’s determined to hold out for someone who’s able to love him back, not someone who only sees him as a kid brother.
Apollo is shocked by the intensity of his attraction to Dylan. Maybe some no-strings summer fun will bring this former SEAL back to life. But the combination of scorching desire and warm affection is more than he’d expected, and the emotion between them scares him senseless. No fling lasts forever, and Apollo will need to decide what’s more important if he wants to keep Dylan in his life—his past or his future.

I really enjoyed this book. Dylan and Apollo had great chemistry. I really liked the ending. Can’t wait to red Ben and Maddox story.
This is book #2, in the Out Of Uniform series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading series in order.
Apollo has known Dylan for almost 20 years. His big brother is Apollo's best friend. He has always thought of him as a "kid." Being attracted to him is a shock.
Dylan has been in love with Apollo for as long as he can remember. Now it is like breathing. He knows Apollo needs his help, but he wants to be more. What will it take to be seen as an equal?
This was a story that made me feel everything. I laughed, cried, and wished for them to get together pretty much right away. This author never disappoints. I always love seeing the big alpha's fall. Great addition to the series. I cannot wait to read the next book.

#2 - "At Attention" - focus, don't loose a chance by being STUPID!
Seriously so focused on his fraternal five year old twin daughters, widowed thirty three year old Navy Seal Lt. Apollo Floras accepts his best friend Dustin's twenty three year old brother, for the summer, to be his Sophia and Chloe's nanny-baby sitter; except since he was fifteen years old, eight years later, Dylan's crush on Apollo has never faltered, and maybe, joining the family possibly might bring a chance to develop a bonding relationship. Rough seas, hesitation, kindles emotional defenses, urges and desires, with a story to break your heart! "Don't be stupid" and let the love of your second chance pass you "GOOD-BYBY"
