Blurb:

For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

My View:

Just Drive, while not my favorite L.A. Witt book, was still a very enjoyable read.

This is an age gap romance between Navy base commander Paul and college student Sean. They had a great meet-cute with Paul ordering a Uber after a break up and Sean driving the car that picks him up. Paul tells Sean to just drive and that’s what they do…at first. The ride ends up in a very hot sex scene.

There’s a lot of sex in this book, maybe more than I really prefer but it was all well-written and extremely passionate and erotic. Paul and Sean have a ton of chemistry from the get go and I enjoyed seeing them together, I just would’ve liked for them to do stuff other than make love.

The conflict, when the story gets around to it, is a unique one and realistic. At least I assume it’s realistic. I know nothing about the Navy but Witt does and she’s known for writing factual military romances. Though I liked the conflict I did get tired of the back and forth of them complaining about not being able to be together but then hooking up again.

I also wasn’t a fan of the epilogue because it felt a little too cheesy/rom com. But if that’s your thing, you’ll love this one. Even without the cheese-tastic ending it’s still a great book and I’m looking forward to seeing what Witt does with future books in the series.
