On Point by Annabeth Albert

Official SummaryPushing thirty, with his reenlistment looming, decorated navy sniper Maddox Horvat is taking a long look at what he really wants in life. And what he wants is Ben Tovey. It isn’t smart, falling for his best friend and fellow SEAL, but ten years with Ben has forged a bond so intimate Maddox can’t ignore it. He needs Ben by his side forever—heart and soul.

Ben admits he likes what he’s seen—his friend’s full lower lip and the perfect muscles of his ass have proved distracting more than once. But Ben's still reeling from a relationship gone to hell, and he's not about to screw up his friendship with Maddox, too.

Until their next mission throws Ben and Maddox closer together than ever before, with only each other to depend on.

Now, in the lonely, desperate hours awaiting rescue, the real challenge—confronting themselves, their future and their desires—begins. Man to man, friend to friend, lover to lover.

Review: Based on the summary, I thought this book might take place mostly on the mission while the two wait for rescue, but that's really just the beginning of the story. I really loved On Point. I'm a big fan of friends to lovers romances, and I think this one was done really well. On Point is the third in the Out of Uniform series - and this is a favorite series of mine! I can't wait for the fourth book. You can read these books out of order, but I suggest reading them in order since you'll see the characters in all the books. For example, I already knew a bit about Ben and Maddox before reading On Point and it just made me even more excited to check out their story.

One thing that I really loved about On Point is that while the two guys are already best friends, that doesn't mean that becoming more than that is easy. They still have their doubts and worries, and these are things they have to work through - together. Definitely recommended!

Aw, I thought it was on the mission as well that their feelings changed to one another :( I thought that had such good potential, and goodness me, the blurb really did sound promising in that regard! Still though, sounds like an intense read!

I always find it weird when a blurb isn't exactly right! The book I'm reading at the moment was like that, actually. The blurb made out like the character would have no memory for a lot of the book, and yet it was back in the first few chapters, haha.

I like the sound of this one! I think I've already told you how much I like the friends to lovers trope :) And I think it's good that their relationship doesn't make that transition perfectly! I think there should always be that little bit of fear of losing the amazing relationship you DO have, in favour of the one you might want more.

Glad you liked this one, Lauren! I hope the fourth book is just as good :)
