Romance did seem to get overwhelmed by the focus on Dalton’s problems though, so when Chris and Dalton finally got together, I didn’t get much sense of the UST they should have been drowning in (pun not intended!). There’s no drama when Chris finally comes out to Dalton, and I liked their little beach retreats but wanted more togetherness outside of their jobs and bedroom. The dialogue revolved almost entirely around Dalton, his stress over his difficult recovery which could hurt his career, the pressure of exams and the uncertainty about the investigation. Chris was so resigned to worrying, without much effort in finding constructive solutions, he was hard to like much at some points. The sex scenes were still pretty hot but didn’t add a lot of romantic elements. However, I was fully invested in how Dalton would save himself and his career, and how he and Chris could be together.
The epilogue provides satisfying closure for all the characters, as well as the reader. I also liked the way Chiefs Jackson and Curtis, from the last two books, were drawn into the narrative. I read any and every book L.A. Witt writes about the military, as well as the majority of her other works in MM romance. She’s a skilled, prolific writer of well-researched tales but her personal experience as a Navy spouse lifts these books above the norm. I’m very much looking forward to the next book and Diego’s story!

While this wasn't my favorite book of the series, I still really, really enjoyed it. Honestly, I think the only reason I didn't like it as much was just because the guys felt so much younger.
In this book, we meet Dalton and Chris, best friends...one out as gay, the other not. In fact, Dalton doesn't even know that Chris is gay...that's how far in the closet he is. But Chris is black and is already dealing with enough bigotry with that. There's no reason (to him) to give anyone more ammunition against him. But then a reckless supervisor makes a bad choice and Dalton almost dies. Suddenly Chris realizes just how much he could have lost and his secrets don't seem as important anymore. At least not as important as being honest with Dalton about his attraction to him.
These two guys are dealing with a lot. The seaman who made the mistake is the commander's favorite so he's actively trying to protect that man's wrong decisions. If that means throwing Dalton under the bus, he's okay with that, despite the fact that Dalton almost died. So Dalton is dealing with that AND the lingering physical and mental deficits left by the accident that the commander is trying to brush off as minor and just a simple miscall.
Coming from a military background (Air Force, not Navy) I totally loved watching the political mechanisms of what was happening with the guys in this book. No matter what the regulations are, there are always jerks who wear the uniform and know how to abuse it. I hated this fact for these two guys, but it truly made the book a riveting read even while I internalized their conflict over what to do about what was happening to them.
I've enjoyed this entire series. I'm going to be sad when it ends, but I feel like I've learned a ton about the Navy along the way and have enjoyed some truly great military romances.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
When I started this book, I was really excited Chris and Dalton were long-time friends. Friends to lovers is a favorite trope of mine because the chance for a strong, palpable connection is so high. While I definitely liked how well the men knew each other and felt that allowed their relationship to develop quicker without feeling rushed, I didn’t quite feel the chemistry radiating between them. That isn’t to say I didn’t like the characters. I did, and I enjoyed the overall story. I simply think the intensity of the military storyline following Dalton’s accident actually ended up overshadowing the romance in Going Overboard, and I was more caught up in what would happen with Chris and Dalton’s careers and the investigation than with them as a couple.
What I love about this series is that it’s different than many military romances I have read. Once again, I was impressed at how well the author details the military elements, keeping things realistic for those familiar with military life while explaining elements of a career in the armed forces clearly enough to ensure the characters and situations are relatable to all readers. Although Going Overboard wasn’t my favorite of the Anchor Point series, I did really enjoy it and will certainly continue with the series going forward.
