Going Overboard by L.A. Witt


It turns out love and sex come easy when you’re falling for your best friend.

Second-class petty officers Dalton Taylor and Chris Ingram have been best friends since coxswain’s school. Now they’re stationed together in the harbor patrol unit of NAS Adams. They’re content as friends, but secretly, they both ache for more. Neither makes a move, though; while Dalton is out and proud, Chris is closeted—even from his best friend.

Then another coxswain’s negligence nearly drowns Dalton. After a taste of how easily they could lose each other, neither man can keep his feelings hidden anymore, and it turns out love and sex come easy when you’re falling for your best friend.

Things aren’t just heating up between the friends-turned-lovers, though. The Navy is investigating the accident, and the harbor patrol chief isn’t going to let his star coxswain go down for dereliction of duty, even if saving him means throwing Dalton under the bus.

As the threats and gaslighting pile up, Chris and Dalton need each other more than ever—as shipmates, friends, and lovers. But if their chief prevails, the only way they can save their careers is to let each other go.

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/M Military Romance

Chris and Dalton have been friends forever. Dalton has been out in his life for a long time. He doesn't hide who he is, but he secretly wants his best friend, Chris. Too bad Dalton truly believes that Chris is straight. Maybe don't know each other as well as they think.

When Dalton is injured and almost dies, Chris can't help but make sure that he and Dalton move to the next level.

This was more about the military issues for each character. Dalton is trying to do the right thing but also knows that he is being discriminated against. He wants to be with Chris but won't let his accident derail Chris' career.

I enjoyed this story a lot. I liked that it was about more than the romance. I liked that it was fast paced, and you wanted to root for the couple and Witt gave you someone to truly hate. I do wish that we had more of a conclusion – it felt a little rushed.

This is an exciting story about the consequences of cover-ups and corrupt leadership in the US Navy. It’s also a wonderful friends-to-lovers romance between two men who have always had each other’s backs but who have always hidden their true feelings.

I have to admit that I hesitated before requesting this story because I really didn’t get on with the last few books in the series. Fortunately, this fifth story feels fresh and exciting. This is easily the most original story in the series and the plot is much more complicated and action packed than the last couple of books.

The story starts with Dalton’s harrowing near-death experiences and then follows him through the subsequent fallout and investigation. I found the internal Navy politics both fascinating and terrifying.

The romance in this story is fantastic – I love it when friends-to-lovers is done right, and this is just about perfect. I’m really glad that I continued with this series or I might have missed my favourite book yet.


Angie☆☆☆
I have read all the books in this series and this by far is my least favorite. Honestly, I was bored and found myself skimming and just wanting the book to be over. I usually love stories that are friends-to-lovers but even that couldn't keep my interest in this book. I felt that there was so much detail about the job that the love story got lost in the mist. I am hoping this is just a one-off for the series and the next one will be better. I'm sure others will love this installment, but it just missed the mark for me.

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn't lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don't tell Lauren. And definitely don't tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut...
