Bacon meets journalist Spencer when he is imbedded in Bacon’s Seal team and Bacon is assigned to be is liaison and take care of him. There is an attraction between the men from the beginning but I loved the way a friendship, emotional connection and a level of trust was built between the two. There is a real maturity to this story. The things that bring Spencer and Bacon together and the things that divide them are not trivial. These are two grown men dealing with real issues and trying to figure out if and how they can be together in a way that work for both of them.
I adored Bacon and Spender’s romance. Tight Quarters is another excellent book in the Out of Uniform series. I’m not sure if Annabeth Albert plans to write more book in this series or not but if she does I’ll be happy to read them.

As with all the other books in this series, TIGHT QUARTERS was a delight to read. The characters continue to be amazingly dynamic and full of unforeseen depth. Bacon, as I mentioned, has been a favorite, and I was super excited to learn this book was about him. From his first appearance, I loved him and the way he supported his brothers in arms. He’s such a good guy, willing to help out however he can, and I’ve been eager to see him finally get his happy ending and someone who can help take care of him in the way he cares for others. And with this book, he finally finds that in Spencer Bryant, a journalist 20 years his senior, who’s been embedded with the SEAL in order to do in depth research for a story.
I enjoyed the fact that there was a bit of enemies to lovers happening with Bacon and Spencer, even as they were attracted to each other from the first. It was so interesting to watch their relationship progress from journalist and Navy liaison to friends and lovers who’re secure in just how much they need and rely on each other. The progression of their relationship was so fun and sweet and tender, and the breakup scene was almost as crushing for me as it was for them. I couldn’t stop reading, waiting for them to finally achieve their happy ending, and the way they get there is just perfect.
In addition to the characters and overall plot, I was also a fan of the pansexual rep we find on page here through Bacon. We learn that he’s pan in the previous book (SQUARED AWAY), so I was curious about how Albert was going to portray it, and I think she did a good job. Bacon was just pan–forthcoming with using the term and correcting anyone who mislabeled him–and there was none of the weird “validation” involving past sexual partners that books with bisexual and/or pansexual character tend to feature. He talks about having past partners, and talks about his teenage enbyfriend Jamie, whose story is relevant to how it’s affected Bacon’s life, without using them as part of Bacon’s “pan cred,” but that’s it. As I said, he’s just allowed to be and exist as pansexual, which I loved.
Also, as always, I loved seeing familiar faces from the previous books in the series, as well as meeting new character, such as Rooster (who’s one of the heroes of the next book!).
I look forward to more from this series, and Annabeth Albert in general, in the months and years to come!
I really enjoyed Bacon and the fact that this tough Navy SEAL still had a bit of his emo teen years in him. He was really comfortable with himself and his sexuality but he also isn't sure how his team will handle knowing about him. While Bacon's best friend Curly already knows, there are a few guys on the team who frequently make homophobic jokes and he's getting to the end of his tolerance. I loved when Bacon's confidence comes through and he finally comes out and there's even a few surprises from his team.
Spencer was also a great hero and since he's in his 40's he has a maturity that balances Bacon's more impulsive side nicely. He's been married before but he's so dedicated to his job that he just doesn't see a long term relationship in his life. Spencer is steady and hard working but he's also scared to really take a chance on love. He doesn't quite know how to handle Bacon and navigate the hurdles in a potential relationship and this causes some problems for them. While they struggle to make things work and there's some time apart, I was glad that Albert avoided The Big Misunderstanding and instead Bacon and Spencer talked everything out before taking some time apart. It wasn't that they weren't communicating but that they didn't know how to reach a compromise.
There's one more book in the Out of Uniform series and I can't wait because I've loved these books from the very beginning.
The way Bacon and Spencer get together is predictable and that's okay. But the inevitable 'showdown' over Spencer's book was just so obvious. And then both of them gave up so quickly. Like zero effort to talk. Spencer, at the very least, should have known better and that annoyed me.
The build-up to their physical relationship was slow and sweet. Their reunion was also a sweet moment. I generally like this author's work and I'll be looking for the next book featuring Rooster!
I guess the author thought there had to still be conflict to cause a break up, but I just didn't buy it. (Not going to reveal it to spoil the surprise). It's rather quickly and easily overcome.
Still, this book is one of my favorites of the series.
All that said, I did love the ending. Once Bacon and Spencer started communicating and figuring out how to make their lives work together, I was loving this so much. They are very sweet together, though sex was a little more prevalent than I prefer, and had a really heartfelt ending. Really excited for the next (final TT-TT) book, but I’m sorry to say this one was not one of my favorites....
Our author gives us yet another pair of needy men who find their "one."This is an important book of silent relationships, getting to be set free and open. Difficult decisions are needed, with intense feelings involved, and life changing moments. We get a wonderful epilogue, and as always, I look forward to more.
Highly recommended. ENJOY !
There isn't a hole in the plot anywhere, and it's a long story that ranges from California to the South Pacific and back again. Both characters and their friends and families are perfectly developed, and the bedroom scenes are completely believable and incredibly hot.
I really don't want to give many more details except I read this one straight through, which is a very high compliment because I usually bounce back and forth between books when I reach a point where I need a break. Not with this one, however.
And somewhat early on Ms. Albert gives a hint and who will be the protagonist in Book #7, and in the afterword she confirmed my suspicions. If that one is half as good as this one, I will join the SEALs myself!
The attraction they feel just bubbling beneath the surface can be ignored, will be ignored. Spencer slips right into the teams training, proving that he won't be a dangerous hindrance. The mission doesn't go as planned and they have to depend on each other to get to safety. That pesky attraction getting closer and closer to the surface. Because the mission went south and there were injuries, Spencer's access is cancelled.
The men know that an attempt to have a “not” relationship can get them both in trouble but they want each other to much to fight. What follows is two men falling in love without even trying. The sex is spectacular, leading into a real relationship.
Spencer's job intervenes, bringing with it broken hearts.
This was another good book in the series. Some angst, nice sexy times, and another set of likable heroes.
Previously in the series, we are introduced to Bacon, and it's great to get to see his story come forward. I like that, like in other books in this series, Bacon's sexuality isn't one you typically see portrayed in books, and it's great to see it in this book, as well as details from his past and his past relationship that are really just lovely, and not things you see all the time.
His relationship with Spencer is nice too see evolve. I like seeing how they started out lukewarm and move into something more. I feel like there were a couple of points where their relationship seemed to progress a little quicker than what seemed organic at that point, but nothing that can't ultimately be seen as a sort of "heat of the moment" type thing.
For me, especially in terms of comparing this to other books in the series, there were places where the stakes didn't necessarily seem high, or like there was a real moment where I felt like this characters wouldn't work it out. Don't get me wrong, I love a HEA ending, but I still like a little bit of the drama that leads up to it, and I feel like her, ultimately what had to be given up or dealt with for them to be together didn't seem like as big a deal as the characters made it seem? And then it resolved pretty quickly and easily anyway.
That being said, I feel like this book was a wonderful addition to this series. As always, it was beautifully written, and I feel like the nice thing about this series is that it seems like Annabeth puts a good amount of work and research into doing these characters justice. As someone who comes from a Navy family, and has known SEALs, I continue to be impressed with each one of these books. Once again, I'm left eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
.....oh....and, yeah.... these are some hot men :)
My only disappointment with this book is that I now have to wait for the next one
