Mini-Review: Sailor Proof by Annabeth Albert

The first novel in a brand-new military romance series from Annabeth Albert!

The sexy Navy chief and his best friend’s adorkable little brother…

It’s petty, but Naval Chief Derrick Fox wishes he could exact a little revenge on his ex by showing off a rebound fling. His submarine is due to return to its Bremerton, Washington, home base soon and Derrick knows all too well there won’t be anyone waiting with a big, showy welcome.

Enter one ill-advised plan…

Arthur Euler is the guy you go to in a pinch—he’s excellent at out-of-the-box solutions. It’s what the genius music-slash-computer nerd is known for. So when he finds out Derrick needs a favor, he’s happy to help. He can muster the sort of welcome a Naval Chief deserves, no problem at all.

Except it is a problem. A very big problem.

When Arthur’s homecoming welcome is a little too convincing, when a video of their gangplank smooch goes enormously viral, they’re caught between a dock and a hard place. Neither of them ever expected a temporary fake relationship to look—or feel—so real. And Arthur certainly never considered he’d be fighting for a very much not-fake forever with a military man.

My thoughts

I can honestly say I have never wanted to hit a sailor until Annabeth Albert introduces us to Fernsby and we should probably add Steve to this mix too (chuckle). I would never hit another veteran…but if he slipped off the plank while getting off the ship that wouldn’t be my fault would it? (wink)

I love Arthur and Derrick in Sailor Proof. Arthur and Calder’s family is the best. Sabrina is the best friend everyone needs to pull off a scam and promote it. Albert gives us everything in this fake-boyfriend military romance.

The humor is on point. The issues of military families are real and dealt with sensitively. The sex is hot. The romance makes me wish I had given sailors a chance. Albert has given us another romance that you will want to re-read every year.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
