Pilot Adam Walker has had one great love in his life: Harris Kingston. But twelve years ago, when he accepted a scholarship and joined the Navy, he chose duty to his country over love. Their on-again off-again relationship was never more than private joy, a frustrating fact of military life.

Harris never wanted to be anyone's dirty little secret. When Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed two years ago, Adam broke his heart one last time. He's picked up the pieces and moved on, building a great career and dating guys who aren't afraid to be seen in public with him. But when Adam strolls into his salon asking for a haircut, his newfound happiness goes to hell in a handbasket.

Adam's been at war with himself for over a decade. Now on the verge of leaving the military, he's desperate to court Harris the right way and be forgiven. With two weeks' leave and a Navy man's conviction, he's ready to start over…if he can convince Harris he's ready to come out and commit.

When past hurts have yet to heal, overcoming the pain and finding forgiveness is a daunting task.

Adam gave up his first chance at loving Harris when he chose to enlist in the Navy instead of loving his man. When Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed, he blew his second chance by not coming home to claim Harris' heart. Now at a crossroads in his career, Adam is willing to do whatever it takes to make things right with Harris, the man who has always owned his heart.

Harris understood when Adam chose to keep their love a secret rather than endanger his career, but when he failed to come home after the danger had passed, he decided to let go of their love and move on. Determined to resist Adam's advances, Harris knows that his heart can't withstand the pain of being broken by Adam again.

HIGH AND TIGHT is a dramatic and well written romance that depicts the challenging choices Don't Ask, Don't Tell gay men and women enlisted in the military faced. Even though the law has been repealed, tradition is hard to overcome, and this is one of the best books I've read that exemplifies this. The emotional connection between Adam and Harris is especially poignant and it's easy to empathize with the challenges they face.

With a cast of supporting characters that complements the story line, HIGH AND TIGHT is a military romance that I would recommend to anyone looking for a romantic story about star-crossed lovers, second changes, friendship, forgiveness and love.
