Lieutenant Apollo Floros can ace tactical training missions, but being a single dad to his twin daughters is more than he can handle. He needs live-in help, and he's lucky a friend's younger brother needs a place to stay. He's surprised to see Dylan all grown up with a college degree…and a college athlete's body. Apollo's widowed heart may still be broken, but Dylan has his blood heating up.

It's been eight years since the teenage Dylan followed Apollo around like a lovesick puppy, and it's time he showed Lieutenant Hard-to-Please that he's all man now—an adult who's fully capable of choosing responsibility over lust. He can handle Apollo's muscular sex appeal, but Apollo the caring father? Dylan can't afford to fall for that guy. He's determined to hold out for someone who's able to love him back, not someone who only sees him as a kid brother.

Apollo is shocked by the intensity of his attraction to Dylan. Maybe some no-strings summer fun will bring this former SEAL back to life. But the combination of scorching desire and warm affection is more than he'd expected, and the emotion between them scares him senseless. No fling lasts forever, and Apollo will need to decide what's more important—his past or his future—if he wants to keep Dylan in his life.

At Attention by Annabeth Albert is the second book in the Out of Uniform Series. This series can be read out of order. I love the connection these characters have. The way Ms. Albert brings them together makes the story unforgettable.
This book is about Apollo and Dylan.
Apollo has been married before. He is gay but could never be out in the service. He has twin girls. He had a surrogate to have the twins. His partner Neal died. Neal had been a physical therapist.
Loved Apollo he is hauntingly sweet. Loving and caring person. The kind of person you want on your side for always.
Dylan has always had a crush on Apollo. But Apollo has been his big brother's best friend so off limits. Now he has a chance to watch Apollo's children and live with him for the summer. Can he keep his growing love for Apollo a secret?
This is a super sweet story. I fell in love with both characters and wanted them to end up together. Each is at a very different place in their lives, but they can meld and become a couple if they just give the other a chance. This is a great second chance at love story I wont soon forget.
