High and Tight by Vanessa North

I received a review copy of High and Tight by Vanessa North through Carina Press on NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  This book has adult situations and is recommended for mature readers.

Pilot Adam Walker has had one great love in his life: Harris Kingston. But twelve years ago, when he accepted a scholarship and joined the Navy, he chose duty to his country over love. Their on-again off-again relationship was never more than private joy, a frustrating fact of military life.

Harris never wanted to be anyone's dirty little secret. When Don't Ask, Don't Tell was repealed two years ago, Adam broke his heart one last time. He's picked up the pieces and moved on, building a great career and dating guys who aren't afraid to be seen in public with him. But when Adam strolls into his salon asking for a haircut, his newfound happiness goes to hell in a handbasket.

Adam's been at war with himself for over a decade. Now on the verge of leaving the military, he's desperate to court Harris the right way and be forgiven. With two weeks' leave and a Navy man's conviction, he's ready to start over…if he can convince Harris he's ready to come out and commit.

I really felt like there needed to just be more to this story. It needed more depth. It was a very emotional read and I really enjoyed it but it left me wishing for more.  I really felt horrible for both characters.  Adam has dealt with so much fear over his life and Harris just wants to be loved by the man he loves, he wants to know he is important to Adam.  Who doesn't want to know that they are loved and important?  Harris and Adam have such an emotional roller coaster of a reunion in this book that it really tears the reader apart.  I enjoyed both of the characters and the supporting cast of characters were well written too.  I highly recommend this to those who enjoy M/M romance.

I give High and Tight 3 Fairies for a good story that I just needed more of.  You can find author Vanessa North on her website, her blog and on Twitter.
