"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

In this book we get a bit of taboo, Navy taboo that is, an Enlisted soldier (Will) hooks up with an Officer (Brent). When these two initially meet up the sparks fly but being from two different ranks they go their separate ways. Unable to get each other out of their heads, both men head to a local gay bar for a random hook up. When they encounter each other in the bar they tell themselves they can't do it, however Brent is hard headed and follows Will into the bathroom where they proceed to have hot sex. They eventually head back to Brent's place and have an night that neither one can forget despite knowing that they have to. They decide to carry on despite what being caught could mean to their careers. Along the way, their hearts become involved and Brent begins to question his Navy career more and more. This is probably my favorite book in the series, their feelings for each other are real and their struggle in dealing with having to keep their relationship a secret provided some angst.
This one lives up to those two standards (ok, themes), with both Will and Brent serving in the Navy in positions that make their love affair illegal: Will is a Navy cop but enlisted, and Brent is an Annapolis graduate and commissioned. The rule is clear: Thy shall not sleep with each other, and if you do, you're out.
What rules the roost here is that both men approach the situation perfectly in keeping with their age and values. Will is nearing 40 and he has deep guilt over the situation he finds himself in, but after a brutal end to his previous five-year-relationship (detailed in Book 3 of the series), he can't help himself. Brent is a millennial in many respects, just not ready to face the facts or deal with reality or come clean about what he's really doing in the Navy.
Getting both of them to solve their separate, and joint, problems is an easy plotline to predict; getting there is a bit of a surprise in how it happens, and how it is projected to play out.
will is enlisted, and brent is an officer, and therefore any relationship between them could lead to them being court-marshalled. they know this from the beginning but can't keep their hands off each other. steamy sex soon gets mixed in with emotions and they have to take a decision: the navy or their love story
like the other books in this series, sex takes up a huge chunk of the book, and it is well written. the characters develop well, and you will be totally rooting for them by the end of the book!
A testament to the antiquated ways men bank prefer men are still being treated in this day and age. Scary thing is that with the current administration this could soon be even worse.
Back to the book: it grabs you by the short and curlies from page 1. Not able to put it down, you resolved for these characters. Feel like you want to know book 2 - will there be one?, Please!
