ARC REVIEW: Tight Quarters by Annabeth Albert

SUMMARY

39675783Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: July 9, 2018
Received From: NetGalley / A Novel Take PR

Petty Officer Bacon, a navy SEAL and ace sharpshooter, has been on the front lines of more than his fair share of dangerous ops. Yet when a minor injury relegates him to the beta team, he’s tasked with what may be his riskiest assignment yet: the silver fox journalist he’s babysitting is the hottest, most charismatic man he’s ever encountered.

Award-winning journalist Spencer Bryant may have been named one of Pride magazine’s most eligible bachelors of the year, but he’s not looking to change his relationship status. He’s a consummate professional who won’t risk his ethics or impeccable reputation by getting involved with a source. Even a sexy-as-hell military man. But while Spencer can resist his physical attraction to Bacon, he has less control over his emotions—especially when the mission goes sideways and the two men are trapped alone.

Getting out of the jungle alive turns out to be easy compared to facing the truth about their feelings for one another back in the real world. And whether or not they can build a future is a different story altogether.

Good morning, y’all! Or good afternoon and goodnight, if it’s that time where you are!

Today, we have a very special post from author Dill Werner in which they talk about the Do’s and Don’t’s of writing and introducing transgender and nonbinary characters. It’s primarily guidelines for cisgender authors who include us in their narratives–insisting that they do better by us–but I think it’s a necessary read for everyone.

So, without further ado…
