Review: Lifetime Hitch by Megan Slayer

Sometimes the best laid plans are meant to be thrown way off course.

Hunter planned his life very well. He’s got his position in the Air National Guard, the family he’s always wanted and a life most people would love to have. Except he’s not happy. His friends all know his truths, but them knowing about his sexuality and him admitting it are two different things. Thankfully Ryder—his best friend—has always got his back.

Ryder has loved Hunter since they were in school. He wants to have more than Hunter’s back—he wants everything. Forcing his Guardsman to come out as a gay man wasn’t on his agenda, but Ryder isn’t above a bit of gentle nudging.

Will the things Hunter can’t control be his undoing, or will he accept who he is as well as the love he’s craved all of his life?

Hunter is in the National Guard. He’s got his girlfriend, daughters, and his best friend to always come home to. Most people are envious of that, but Hunter is not happy. His girlfriend and best friend know the truth. But even though they know, Hunter can not admit the truth about his sexuality-even to himself. He’s thankful for his best buddy Ryder, though, he always has his back.

Ryder has been in love with Hunter since their school days. Being his buddy, his wingman, is all well and good, but he wants a lot more. So much more. Forcing Hunter to admit his sexuality and come out as a gay man wasn’t the game plan, but if Hunter was headed down that path, he’d help him get there.

Lifetime Hitch is about one man’s journey to understanding and admitting, who he really is. He’s known for years, but being in the military kept him firmly in the closet. Hunter loves his job, but when push came to shove, he has to embrace who he is and roll with the punches. I understood Hunter’s issues. Being a gay man comes with it’s own set of issues, but being a gay man in the military? That adds a whole other set of issues. I give kudos to his girlfriend and best friend for always accepting him no matter what. It’s reassuring to have people in your corner like that. My only issue? I didn’t feel any real chemistry between Hunter and Ryder. And I wanted to! Sure the words were said and action ensued, but I didn’t feel the emotions jump from the page and grab me. Even so, the story has merits and I do recommend reading it.
