Diego, working for tips as a bartender, want nothing to do with the Navy. He was wounded in the line of duty and was tossed out of the Navy because he couldn't meet the qualifications to stay in. He lost his green card and is in the US illegally.
When he met Mark, Diego knew getting close him was a mistake, but their chemistry was just to hot to ignore. The more time they spent together, the hotter the relationship became.
There were a lot of issues that created conflict between the men, which I suppose was needed to move the story along, but also seemed to bog it down a bit. I've read all the Anchor Point stories and this is another nice addition to the series.
The writing is clear and precise. The characters are diligent, lonely, and skeptical. And the alluring plot is filled with flirty banter, longing, desire, doubt, angst, military politics, PTSD, compassion, support, friendship, and love.
Once Burned is the sixth novel in the Anchor Point series and is not only a smoulderingly sexy read but a thought-provoking one as it tackles and highlights the injustice faced by immigrants who put their lives on the line for the American government only to be unacknowledged, uncompensated, and unsupported when injured and discharged due to a convenient loophole that doesn't recognize them as U.S. citizens.
Wow...what a really tough subject matter to tackle, but L.A. Witt did it beautifully. This book was wonderful...as is the entire series. Every book, every setup, and every couple are completely different, but I love them all.
This book is about Diego, an illegal who's scraping by, under the table as a bartender at the local gay bar. He spent 8 years in the Navy and got screwed when he got hurt on his last deployment...which sent his entire world and stability into a downward spiral.
Mark is coming off a fairly 'good' divorce. He and his ex are much better as exes than they ever were as spouses. Navy life definitely didn't do them any favors over the years they were married. But now Mark is in a new town with a new job as XO on his ship. It's an all-new world, and he's not real settled into exactly what that means.
Looking for something to do, he heads to the local gay bar to check out the scene. It's been a while since he hooked up with a guy and after his divorce, the idea of something different is good.
Both Mark and Diego have an immediate connection...to the point where Diego ignores his personal rule about 'no Navy guys'.
Because of Diego's history, there is a lot of things sitting out there waiting to be roadblocks for these two. Not only is Diego really embittered toward the Navy, but he has the threat of deportation hanging over his head all the time. He's also battling PTSD and the injury to his leg...neither of which can improve because of his illegal status, Diego can't seek medical help. He's in a huge downward spiral with no obvious way out. I had no idea how the author would fix this all for these two guys.
But in the end, she did it and I loved how the book turned out and the journey the author took us on to get there. It was a gorgeous story and even more amazing...1/2 of the author's royalty will go toward soldiers who are facing the same future as Diego (something that should NEVER happen to those who have willingly put their lives in the line of fire for our freedom!!!!!)
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
