The camping trip from hell may be the first stop on the road to happily-ever-after in Rough Terrain, the final book in Annabeth Albert's critically acclaimed, fan-favorite Out of Uniform series.
Navy SEAL Renzo Bianchi has a soft spot for Canaan Finley, and not only because the man makes a mean smoothie. He's the first guy to get Renzo's motor revving in a long time. But when he agrees to Canaan's insane charade—one all-access fake boyfriend, coming right up—he never expects more than a fling.
Creating a hot Italian SEAL boyfriend to save face seemed like a good idea…until his friends called Canaan's bluff. Now he's setting off into the woods with the very man who inspired his deception, and Canaan is not the outdoorsy type. The sparks are already flying when a flash flood separates them from their group, leaving Renzo and Canaan very much trapped…very much alone in the wilderness.
Working together to come up with a plan for survival is sexier than either of them expects. But back in the real world, being a couple is bringing its own set of hazards…

ROUGH TERRAIN is the seventh book in the Out of Uniform series, and this time we meet up with Renzo (Rooster) Bianchi and part-time barista, Canaan. Canaan has been watching Renzo come into the shop for the past few months and has admired him from afar. When the opportunity arises to flirt, he takes it! Renzo is interested in Canaan, but doesn't want to be used again. He has been the guy to make the boyfriend jealous, and doesn't want to be that person again.
These two are so sweet together! Seriously!!! Their relationship is a slow-burner, which just made the story so much better. The attraction is there, but until Renzo can be sure of Canaan's feelings, he is not prepared to move forward.
As with all Annabeth Albert books, this was exceedingly well-written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading. The story flowed, and the characters are all well-rounded out.
With a strong relationship built on friendship and trust, this is a fantastic addition to the Out of Uniform series, although it can be read as a standalone. Absolutely recommended by me.
