Pre DADT Repeal...

Jaded by his lover leaving him for a woman, Camdyn Hardy is looking for love and partnership. When he goes to the local shooting range, he only wants to let off a little steam, but meeting Malik Day, a discharged army serviceman is a welcome surprise.

Malik’s issues go farther than just a lack of love. Discharged for defending a fellow gay soldier got him kicked out of the Army and back at home with his bible thumping parents. When Malik meets Camdyn, the sparks are there, but both of them are too afraid to make their desires known to each other.

After several conversations and dates, Camdyn and Malik are hot for one another and ready to take the next step. When they do, they discover they have a lot more in common than just a need for a committed relationship.

I have some mixed feelings about this book. I really enjoyed most of the book, but there were a couple things that threw me off. 

One thing I felt was added to add the shock factor. Without their kinky preference, the story would have been just as good. There were also a couple comments made by both men that seemed unnatural. They only happened a couple times and didn't distract from the story 

Unfortunately, both of these amazing men have suffered because of their sexuality. I can't imagine how hard it is for them to have the courage to be themselves.  Once I started the book, I felt so connected to them that I couldn't put the book down for long. This book is just the beginning of their relationship, both personal and professional. I can't wait to read more about this couple. 

Under the Gun is written in alternating POV. There is no cliffhanger ending and could be read as a stand alone.
