Review: Just Drive (Anchor Point #1) by L.A. Witt

For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

If you are new to author L.A. Witt and you are wondering if this book is worth reading, let me tell you with a resounding yes, Just Drive is worth your time. I have only recently discovered her on a complete whim and fell in love with her stories and characters. They feel so real, so believable, and even though I’m not a big fan of May-December romances, Ms. Witt has me begging for more of them.


Paul is a Navy lifer, devoting his life, his career with the goal to one-day make admiral. Sean’s a military brat who has had to make many sacrifices for his father’s career. Still living with his father while attending school, he drives a cab in the small Navy town they live in. Both lead mundane lives but all that changes once they meet. What first starts as a quickie soon turns into something more. All of it comes to a grinding halt once they realize Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer. Now everybody involved needs to decide what is more important, life goals or love.


Just Drive was a hard book to put down. Paul and Sean are such likable characters. Their initial hook-up happened fairly soon in the story, which I find sometimes can be annoying. However, the timing this time around doesn’t bother me and actually makes a lot of sense. The build-up from humping buddies to something more I really enjoyed. Okay, Paul may have been a bit obsessive about the age difference, and sometimes it was a bit repetitive (Read: it got old!) but that was all part of the story.


In all honesty, there doesn’t seem to be a detailed goal to the plot. Anybody who is looking for a romance with a heavy plot will probably be disappointed. In its simplicity, Just Drive is really an older guy meets younger guy, they hook up, break up, eventually get a HEA with all the drama in-between story. And before you think I’m complaining, I’m not. I wanted a book that had great characters, hot sex, and bit of drama to lose myself in. I didn’t want to have to think too much and enjoy the story for what it’s worth. That’s exactly what I got with Just Drive.

About L.A. Witt


L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut . . .
