Blurb: Making a living on the Bering Sea is hard enough, but throw love into the equation, and things can blow into a hurricane.
Senior Chief Dean ‘Jake’ Jacobson loves his job as a Coast Guard rescue swimmer. Saving lives is the second best thing he could ever do. The first is loving Phil ‘Rhody’ Rhodes.
Phil is a third generation crabber who fishes the Bering Sea. Being gay and in love with Dean isn’t something he talks about, especially not with the six men he lives with on the Angela Kayla for weeks on end. But he’s been happy with his life.
Until one day the Bering Sea reminds them that she is a dangerous place to work. As her icy waters surround them, they discover one truth. Dean and Phil must always be ready to love each other because life can be taken so easily when one works on the sea.

This was a damn good story that I had a blast reading. I just wished that it was longer with more to it. That is a hint T. A. Chase. This is a fast, light-hearted and amazing story. It has a lot of meat to it for being such a short story. I am never let down by T. A. Chase. Her stories are pretty much on automatic buy for me.
Phil and Dean have been together for two years but not living together. Dean is with the Coast Guard and Phil is a crabber. Dean is out with every one where as Phil is in a job that has a lot of prejudice. He wants a full relationship with the man he loves but is afraid of what his family would say. However he knew he would have to tell them. That is until a storm does it for him. Well in all truth he was the only one that didn’t think they knew. Parents know all and see all, but his family is one of the top ones.
I loved this story and look forward, hint hint, to this being turned into a longer story. I had a blast and will be on the lookout for the next book by this amazing author. I would recommend reading it. I mean you get some hot sex, dangerous storms, and men in uniform and excitement.
This is a great story that has a lot of meat to it
