Rough Terrain (Out of Uniform #7) by Annabeth Albert


The camping trip from hell may be the first stop on the road to happily-ever-after.

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…

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Rough Terrain, the 7th book in Annabeth Albert's Out Of Uniform series, is everything I was hoping it would be. 

Renzo and Canaan's story is a whole lot of fun. It's full of action, some danger, and some steamy moments.

Renzo's a great character, a Navy Seal who's weighed down by expectations and guilt from his family. He's out as bi, but his options have long been limited. Canaan, an employee at the military smoothie café, cares for his grandfather, and is in school to be a nurse. And he's long had a crush on Renzo.

When the two men become fake boyfriends and go on a camping trip with Canaan's old bandmates, their relationship starts changing. Their adventure includes some eye opening moments for Canaan about his old friends, getting trapped, and some flirting. 

One of my favorite parts of their story is the complication with Renzo being extremely well endowed. I love this. There are serious moments, funny moments, and some amazing frotting. I know many tend to enjoy this type of problem in their books, and the way this one is handled won't disappoint.

Another wonderful part is Canaan's grandfather, as he adds a lot to the story. As for Renzo, well, his brother's story will have your tearing up. His brother and his hero worship of Renzo is heart-breaking. 

I am a huge fan of Annabeth Albert's Out of Uniform series and Rough Terrain is the perfect addition. The writing is fantastic, the men deep and loving, and the  plot's entertaining.
