ARC Review: Just Drive by L.A. Witt


For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

*I got an ARC of this book through NetGalley in return of an honest review*

L.A. Witt never disappoints. I know that when I start a book by her – no matter under what pen name the story is written – that I’ll get a couple of hours of enjoyment at the least and at best a book that has me on the edge of my seat, biting my fingernails down to the bone. Just Drive probably falls more into the former category because there’s little to no angst in this story. But still I couldn’t put it down and when I had to only did so reluctantly.

Paul has just ended a relationship and really doesn’t want to go home yet, but he also can’t stay at the hotel, so he tells Sean to “Just Drive.” A request that Sean finds unusual but since he’s going to be paid for it, he goes along with it. He didn’t anticipate it all ending with them having sex. And he also didn’t think it was his dad’s commanding officer he was bending over. I’ll leave it at that because I think the blurb gives you a pretty good idea what this book is about.

I loved the chemistry between Sean and Paul. Those two really set the sheets on fire and I loved how they both just couldn’t stay away from each other.
Ms. Witt – again – created two opposites and just made them fit. Sean isn’t a fan of the military, because as far as he knows the navy just takes, and takes and takes some more. A couple of relationships have ended because his father was stationed at a new base.

While Sean would gladly leave the navy behind Paul is the exact opposite. He’s been in the navy for a long time and hopes to make Admiral, and to someday command a ship of his own. But even after they figure out that Paul is Sean’s fathers CO they can’t resist each other.The draw is too strong and the consequences if someone finds out seem so far away.

The whole back and forth became a bit repetitive after a while; they meet, have sex and then agree to not do this again but overall I really enjoyed it because the chemistry is definitely there. The resolution at the end felt natural and I don’t doubt for a minute that these two are living somewhere together having a lot of fun and lots of sex. 😉

I’d definitely recommend this one. Especially to fans of age-differences and military themed stories. This one won’t disappoint.
