About LA Witt : If you would like to learn more about
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 am a big fan of LA Witt and can always count on well thought out characters and plenty of heat. Just Drive definitely fits the mold just right. Sean is relatively young, going to college and drives a cab in a town with a high Navy population. He is a Navy brat himself and has grown up in military life. Paul is significantly older than Sean (about 20 years) and after a long overdue breakup, he finds himself in the back of Sean’s cab. They end up sharing a super scorching ride and can’t seem to stay away from each other in the weeks that follow. Even after they realize that Sean’s dad works for Paul, they still just can’t stay away from each other and decisions need to be made that will affect them both in the long term.
So, the characters themselves were well thought out, with good back stories and unique personalities. There are a few details missing here or there but you can develop a good sense of who they are. Sean is young in years but seems like he is more mature than his age. Paul is tired of doing the right thing all the time and sick of the Navy ruining all of his relationships. You can feel the physical pull between these guys and the sex is scorching hot. However, I didn’t really feel THEY got to know each other very well. Sure, there was a ton of heat and they talked constantly about how they felt so strongly about each other but I didn’t really SEE it. They spent a lot of time in bed and in their own lives but I wanted to see a bit of getting to know you outside of the bedroom.
I like the secondary characters that you meet in the story. Sean’s dad seems to be this balance of hard ass military father and loving dad. They definitely have a few communication issues but things do get resolved in the end. There was a lot of on again off again as the two main characters tried to stay away from each other and just couldn’t. It was emotional and you could see how much they cared for each other. They will get their happily ever after but it is going to take a few life changes for some of the characters in the story.
The biggest problem I had with Just Drive by LA Witt is really was a lack of plot outside of the relationship. I don’t need major drama or huge crimes to solve but it seemed like the only focus was on the relationship and I think it could have used a little extra umph to keep things interesting.
