As usually I have finished in a session the latest book by Bobby Michaels. How he manages to write about hot and dirty sex and still gives a feeling of romanticism in the story I don't know. But when I closed a book by him I'm satisfied like I was when I was reading my first romance and when the sex was still a discovery (more than twenty years ago... I'm OLD).

Mike is a only son of a single mother. He has never had the chance to have a real sense of brotherhood during school and when he enters the Corps he bakes in the feel to have finally a "family". He loves the Corps and loves to be a Marine, but he has to admit that he even loves Scott, his boot camp buddy. Mike is a big man, very selfconsciousness of his strenght and proud of it, instead Scott is shorter and leaner. When they confess their reciprocate feelings, is easy for Mike to take the upper hand in the relationship. It's not a thing about being bottom or top (even if Mike could frankly admit he prefers to top) it's more a thing of how they rely one to the other. Even if Scott is more experienced and in the beginnins he is who teaches to Mike the joy of gay sex, it's Mike who is the engine of the relationship.

They spend five years in the Corps and they are happy, stolen moments during their assignments to be together. But then Scott is killed in mission, and Mike is wounded. His big body manages to recover, but his souls is teared apart: he only wants to die and be forever with his lover. But duty calls, and he finds himself again in the Corps: good, he thinks, a way to go again in mission and kill himself without no one suspect.

FOR LOVE OF THE CORPS by Bobby Michaels
Being gay could result in Mike and Scott being ousted from the military and they take great pride in their occupation. Their loving relationship comes to an abrupt and violent end in the mountains of Afghanistan when their platoon is attacked. Mike is seriously injured and learns later when he wakes from a coma that Scott is dead. The loss is devastating but it isn't something he can share openly.

Living without Scott is extremely difficult and Mike alternates between rage and despair. He finally decides that the best way to kill himself would be to return to combat. The Marine Corps has other ideas and he's shipped back to the U.S. While he is still assigned to the Third Battalion of the Sixth Regiment he's been reassigned to the Alpha Company as a platoon sergeant.

His new position puts Mike in command of about forty men and under the direct command of First Lieutenant Paul Richards. From the first meeting, Paul's voice alone is able to calm Mike. It's the first time since Mike's release from the hospital that he feels any interest in another man. Guilt, fear, and confusion besiege him until Paul confronts him about his behavior and forces him to realize that it's okay to live and love again.

Bobby Michaels tells an emotionally appealing story with his contribution to the VETERANS series. FOR THE LOVE OF THE CORPS brings to light not only the effects of the military's `don't ask, don't tell' policy but also the closeness that recruits feel for each other - gay or otherwise. I loved the relationship between Mike and Scott. They were such a loving couple that it was heartbreaking when Scott died. Paul's entry into Mike's life couldn't have been more perfect.

Richard Rollins, a veteran who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, would have never considered himself a peeping tom, but with full fledge orgies taking place in his neighbor's backyard he couldn't help but watch. He only watched, he was not interested physically or emotionally in anything his neighbor's guests had to offer, and apparently neither is his neighbors. Richard noticed that the hosts of these weekend rituals would never participate. They sat on their deck and watched just as Richard did across the yard. He also noticed with more than a passing interest the attractiveness of his next-door neighbors. Even though his emotions were shut down and he resigned himself to being alone, that was just one truth he could not deny.

Bryan and Niki Gauld wanted to know more about their neighbor who quietly watched them. They grew tired of their weekend parties and they came to realize they would never find what they were looking for this way because what they were looking for lived right next door. Pulling out all the stops, Niki and Bryan set out to make Richard apart of their life. They knew a man like Richard needed control and they were more than willing to give it to him.

Nothing to Lose is a fantastic story. I started this story and avoided interruptions until I finished it. Niki and Bryan had a void in their life and they knew Richard was the one to fill it. Richard carried around so much hurt inside stemming from his life overseas fighting the war, the killing and saving of lives and also from his person life. He blamed himself for things he had no control over and he locked himself up emotionally to deal and struggle with his feelings on his own. Even though Niki and Bryan knew Richard needed to be with them Richard required some convincing.
