Sailor Proof (Shore Leave #1) by 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.

Review of Sailor Proof
Sailor Proof is the first book in the Shore Leave series by Annabeth Albert. A captivating opposites attract romance that is a true HEA that is so swooning. The two main characters are really adorable together. They just fit together with how they complimented each other. This really is a sweet, sexy story that is sure to make you smile. I look forward to the next book in the series. If you like relationship-driven, low-key stories involving military men, don’t miss Sailor Proof. *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.*
