Crystal Rose: I'll Be Your Drill, Soldier
Marquesate: Basic Training & Her Majesty's Men
Amber Green: Khyber Run
Lee Rowan: Walking Wounded

There's the epic "Special Forces" that spans 3 books and 3 decades by Marquesate & Vashtan (Alexander Voinov) free online in various forms and editions. (downloadable on author sites as well as Goodreads)

There are more if you like historicals, fantasy or sci-fi or only one is military

Jungle Fever (Don't Tell: Gay Military Erotica) is a short I found. It's .99 so don't know about the quality

Try Kaje Harper's Into Deep Waters, it's free on Goodreads, fairly long for a freebie, and REALLY good. They are navy guys.

Have you tried Bound by Honor (Men of Honor)? There are several others in that series that are good, also.
And Blindsided by Poppy Dennison
I can't pull it up on Amz for some reason.

totally agree with DM's recommendation for Into Deep Waters

Also try Marking Time by CJ Anthony. It is also a freebie on GR part of the Love is Always Write series. One is a Marine dealing with DADT, the other is a ex-pro football player. I really loved this story and it can be downloaded. I read most of it in one sitting.

Any new suggestions for this type of book. I really love the Men of Honor series by SE Jakes and would like to find something similiar.

Conduct Unbecoming by L. A. Witt

Good Navy story (and, as I was in the Navy, I'm picky <g>). Not like Men of Honor (more of a character-driven book, no action-adventure aspects), but a solid military M/M romance.

Conduct Unbecoming by LA Witt

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 4:56:03 PM PST
her husband is in the Navy so she gets the ground truth, for lack of a better word - we were actually, unknown to each other, on the same ship at the same time

That's funny. I got out in '99, so I know nothing of the gay aspect. The only issue I had with it were Eric's ruminations on why he, as a PO1, wouldn't find anyone to be friends/buddies with there. It was made out to be more strict than it really is, on the enlisted side (he could go out for drinks with his guys just like Shane did with the officers he worked with; he could be friends with ANY petty officer or chief who didn't directly work with him--and there are certainly many, many more of those people in Okinawa, in admin, legal, whatever), when, really, the big issue was the Big Fraternization Issue, and that was a fact. Otherwise, one of the few military books I've read recently that didn't have something to tick me off. :) I really get annoyed at authors who make mistakes on millitary stuff that could have easily been Googled.

I just read Conduct Unbecoming, and I really enjoyed it. The fraternization regs do have teeth, and it has always been that way in the US Armed Forces. I have never been in, but I'm an Army brat, so I know a little more than some about the details of that life. My dad was in for 20 years, enlisted, and we lived all over the world. My mom says her claim to fame is that she had three lids on three continents!

I'm sure military life is very different now than in the 50's and 60's, but being friends/lovers with someone in your chain of command is a huge no-no. This book is really enjoyable, and the descriptions of Okinowa are very evocative.

Oh, yes, definitely. And not. My husband's CO's wife told me once, "You would never guess how many Admiral's wives were their Yeoman." As she had been. :) It's really messed up, and always has been. It's only a problem if you get caught. The M/M aspect only puts a different perspective on it.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 9, 2013 5:52:37 PM PST
true - but at the same time, if he is in a position of leadership at the command - LPO or something like that, then he shouldn't be encouraged to drink with the other guys - but even for all the military in japan - it is very isolationist - you hang out (and this seems to apply in general) with the people on your ship, and not really outside of it

Oh, I get that part--he was the watch commander. He could go out with them ALL after work, but not any one, at least on a regular basis. I had a senior chief and PO2 who got in trouble for having lunch too often at the E-club prior to my reporting to the command (I was apprised of this "issue" at some point--I admit to going to lunch WITH them a few times after that, although mostly I worked out with my husband, who was at another command on base, and another female LT from my command at lunch. When I wasn't going out to the local buffet with the female LT and my XO and whoever wanted to go, and screw them if they complained when anyone was invited <g>), so, yes, I do get that--both guys, and they'd always ask if anyone else wanted to go, but someone decided to take offense--it's all about perception--trust me, I have lots of stories <g>. That, however, doesn't apply to any PO who is not part of the MAA division--he could hang out with a yeoman or a legalman or a storekeeper (or whatever they are now--I know it changed), and it wouldn't matter that much what enlisted rank they were--don't know about the Okinawa mindset, of course, but he wasn't on a ship; he was at a shore command, but, even on a ship, it would apply (i.e. the different rating people from different departments, within the same command, could hang out because they didn't work for one another).

The total "I won't have any friends" thing, really, that was more his mindset than anything--he didn't want to be there, so it was sour grapes. It was a characterization of his frame of mind. He was in a mood.

Not that I'm arguing. I just read this book for the 2nd time. I really liked it. OTOH, if this conversation between us educates one future writer to the point of looking this stuff up before writing about it, I win. :)
