    4.45 > Series Finale? This CAN'T be the end! <3

    ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ 4-1/2 - STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by its Cover < < Two shirtless men sitting back to front, looking almost contemplative. Strong font choices. Good overall composition. Interesting synopsis. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Third-person Canaan works at a smoothie shop on or near base, which feeds his SEAL “eye candy” fascination. One SEAL in particular, a guy his buddies call Rooster, mesmerizes him to a truly elevated field. Overhearing a casual comment between the team one day allows Canaan to learn that Rooster is bisexual and single & decides to make a move. Renzo is intrigued by Canaan but when Canaan suggests a little “trouble” after work, he clams up. Not as experienced as many would think and having mostly bad experiences in the past, he’s not sure what Canaan is really suggesting or what to do about it. But he can’t stop thinking about the guy and the offer. Together the men formed a friendship that slowly became more. The bond deepened through a hiking trip from hell and a crazy trip at Disney. A lot of focus seemed to be Renzo’s exceptionally large cock (perpetuating the stereotype of “The Italian Stallion”?), the worry Renzo had about making it good for Canaan and Canaan teaching him that there are more ways to get off other than penetration. Family played a big part in the plot as well. Canaan quit playing for a band on the rise, having left in the middle of their European tour when he learned his grandmother was dying. He and his grandfather lived on shared property and were a “package deal”, something Renzo could relate to. Prior to getting involved with Canaan, Renzo had been fighting for an East Coast transfer to move closer to family. When a promotion in position and subsequent East Coast transfer come available, this became the big climax. Sweet and entertaining lead couple. Chemistry was very nice, they complimented one another very well. Secondary cast varied from lovable to deplorable, which gave it a well-rounded feel. Dialogue was smart, interactions felt natural. The plot was rich and full, the writing flowed smoothly. I enjoyed all of the elements this book contained. Conflicts came up here and there but were resolved maturely or in a way that fit the character(s) best. Predictability was low. The conclusion was satisfying and solid. Overall, I was entertained and emotionally invested in this pair which made for a wonderful read. . Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.45 ~ Stars: 4 (4.5, if I could) ========================== ⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from Netgalley and the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback.

    This author has a tremendous way of writing

    Renzo and Canaan This author is master with conversations and monologues. Not one dull moment Canaan... dear, sweet and honest... no second agenda... Renzo has to adjust to all the honest actions. Renzo is very conservative... always on his guard... most of the time I didn’t like him... but on the other side I love it when characters are flawed... so kind of contradicting huh.. I know... They are far out of each others league but Canaan knows a way to connect with Renzo. Asking Renzo to go with him on a weekend trip with his ex band members, as his fake boyfriend so his ex boyfriend will not bother him further, is changing their whole friendship... they start some kind of a relationship. It’s quite a complicated relationship and that’s more because of Renzo and his issues and attitude.. Renzo is a SEAL and before he’d known Canaan he ask for a translocation... A large story, a lot is happening and like I said not one dull moment. Friends, colleagues, family, a band, a survival trip, sweet lovemaking and a lot more things you can find in this read. This author has a tremendous way of writing, always well developed main and secondary personalities... overall a wonderful story. Kindly received an arc from the publisher through NetGalley

    Great read

    I truly enjoyed this contemporary M/M story. I found both Renzo and Canaan extremely interesting and watching their story unfold was a real treat. Everyone knows that Canaan has a thing for a man in uniform and Renzo Bianchi fills his out better than most. Too bad relationships aren't for Renzo so friends it is. That is until Renzo needs a fake boyfriend to meet the parents and put their worries to rest. On a crazy trip home there is lots of fun, flirting and even a near death experience. Will Renzo finally let his heart go? Great read and one I highly recommend.

    Another one in out of uniform series that I absolutely loved. I loved seeing Renzo and Canaan grow together as couple and individually. I loved Canaan and his grandfather is simply amazing. Renzo is under a lot of pressure especially by his parents expectations. Honestly I didn't like his mother that much. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I'm a bit sad that this is the last in the series. Annabeth albert has always written stories that I don't want to put down and this one is not anydifferent. *ARC kindly provided by a NovelTake PR via NetGalley in return for an honest and unbiased review

    Good, entertaining story

    Rough Terrain is the final book in the Out of Uniform series, though I understand there will still be occasional shorts and novellas within the universe. The great thing about this series is it’s easy to jump around and out of order as I’ve done. Although characters from previous books often make appearances, their roles are such that each book is a true standalone. While I have yet to read the series in full, it has yet to disappoint and Rough Terrain proved to be another enjoyable and entertaining story featuring great characters. It was impossible not to like Renzo and Canaan from the start. Their opposites attract romance was cute and I liked how Canaan’s boldness steadily pulled the quieter Renzo from the background. I also loved how the author worked the fake boyfriend trope into Rough Terrain. It made for an interesting and entertaining story while pushing the romance along at a faster, but still believable, pace. Though Canaan and Renzo were certainly different in many respects, Miss Albert also highlighted their similarities, such as their admirable devotion to their families, making it easy to see just how well these two fit. Between the trouble Renzo and Canaan got into on the camping trip, the flirty and often sexy banter, and characters you couldn’t help but love, this sweet, fun romance easily kept my attention and made for a very enjoyable read I’d recommend. *eARC received via Netgalley.
