ROMANCE: Forbidden Love
Wow! Wow! Wow! This might tie with Off Base as my favorite Annabeth Albert book because it was soooo good. Both Dustin and Wes are incredible characters and their relationship was the perfect mix of sexy and sweet. They try to stay away from each other but they're both so compassionate and are always trying to help the other. Everything about this book was perfect and I couldn't put it down.
Dustin realized a bit late in life that he's bisexual but he's never told anyone even though he's watched his family accept his younger brother as gay. He's only recently started exploring his interests when he starts someting with Wes. But when Wes shows up as the new SEAL on Dustin's team they both know that per the military's very strict regulations, there's no way they can continue any type of relationship. On top of that, Wes's transfer to the West coast couldn't come at a worse time -- his sister is having heart issues again and is in need of a transplant.
WHAT WORKED FOR ME
-- Annabeth Albert is a master at writing deep and emotional stories and characters that keep you hanging on until the very end. I didn't want to put this book down for anything and I was completely invested in the story. The pacing is perfect and the writing engaging, with a lot of emotion packed into every page.
-- I loved Dustin's character and the dichotomy of his tough appearance and his desire to give up control in the bedroom. Dustin has been struggling with how to tell his family and friends about his bisexuality and I found this story line really interesting. At the same time, I liked that Dustin wasn't afraid to explore his bisexuality though he had a few moments coming to accept his particular kinks. He's devoted to his SEAL team and a strong leader and no matter what the military says he can't stay away from Wes. Dustin was especially sweet when it came to lifting Wes's spirits over Sam.
-- Wes was also an amazing character. He knows he's found something special in Dustin but he also doesn't want to put Dustin's career in danger. He's always putting others before himself and it's an incredibly endearing character trait. The scenes with his sister are incredibly sweet and I'd love to get Sam's story one day *fingers crossed, pretty please*. Wes is also incredibly supportive of Dustin and his moments of boosting Dustin's confidence were great.
-- This book had a lot of realism included in regards to the military regulations. It made it a lot harder for Wes and Dustin to be together but it also made their moments more poignant. They're always sure it's going to be their last time together and that adds a real depth to the interactions. The ending is a bit of a HFN but you know that things are getting better with each day.
-- It was great to see Apollo and Dylan in this one and even a quick appearance by Zack and Pike.
WHAT DIDN’T WORK FOR ME
-- Not a criticism, but I would have liked a little more on Wes's insomnia. Is it just worry over his sister's heart condition? Stress from his work in the military? Or something else? I'm just crazy curious so I wanted to explore it further.
There are lots of sexy times with BDSM, but it is not gratuitous. It is essential to the story and the development of Dustin and Wes's relationship. It was so hot, sweet, and romantic! I loved how Wes and Dustin recognized what they had was special because of who they were doing it with, not the just (mildly) kinky acts. Wheels Up melted this romantic reader's heart.
Although this is book 4 of a series, it can be read as a standalone without losing anything. Reading book 2 first will give you a slight bit of insight into Dustin because it's the love story of his best friend and his brother.
My other personal dissatisfaction.. I love her stories so much, the emotional journey to the end that I want more time with them after the coming together. I want to see them reap the rewards for their fight to be.
On a serious note, I️’ve loved this whole series and I️ can’t believe I’d say this but this one affected me even more than the others. Soooo many realistic barriers to this romance it was like reading through a mine field. I’m not sure Annabeth Albert can top this one, but you can bet I’ll be here to read it when she tries!
