Description

Staff Sergeant Elijah Jackson, EJ to his friends, joined the air force hoping for refuge from the mess his life had become. For almost 10 years he enjoyed new life, success, and love, in spite of the closet he was forced to hide in by the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell military policy. One day it all comes crashing down around him. Now he’s back home with serious decisions to make and a very short time to decide how to salvage his life while healing his heart. 

Betrayed by his lover and partner, Dr. Dale Chenault left California and his fledgling practice behind. In Sayville, he’s found a home for his counseling service, and on the surface, seems to have his life in order. The truth is some of the decisions Dale made have become a stumbling block in his ability to rebuild the breach in his heart and, by extension, his life.

When Dale and EJ, meet, the chemistry between them is hot, but the pain of past betrayals is strong, and trust seems impossible to build. Will they be able to move past what has been to create a future together?

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is a story of love, trust, betrayal and second chances with an HEA.

I loved this!

One of my favorite audiobook performers, John Solo, did a live reading of Miski Harris's Don't Ask Don't Tell in his Facebook group recently. John's live reading was enough to get me very interested and eager to listen to this book. He really gave the story high marks and I respect his opinion.

As part of the live reading, Miski gave away a few codes for Audible copies of the book; I was lucky enough to win one. When I checked my Kindle library, I also found out that I had purchased a copy of the book a while ago. (I'm a one-click addict and own way more books than I'll ever live to read. 😊)

Don't Ask Don't Tell is a novella length story but it felt like it was much longer to me (in a good way!). The story starts off in 1997 and spans four years. It centers around Elijah Jackson (EJ) and Dale Chenault.

EJ was in the Air Force and was betrayed by his lover who was also in the Air Force. The betrayal cut deep and forced EJ to reexamine his life and goals. Dale suffered a similar betrayal by a lover many years ago so he understood what EJ was going through. The two of them met at a party and really hit it off with each other.

The embarrassment and anguish that EJ goes through radiated off of the pages. It's really hard for me to believe that this was Miski Harris's first published book. I thought the writing was excellent and the story truly kept me captivated from beginning to end.

I would call this a slow burn story. While the chemistry between Dale and EJ was off the charts, Dale had promised himself years ago that he would no longer engage in casual sex. Because he felt that EJ still wasn't over what happened to him, Dale insisted that they wait to have a sexual relationship.

Well, this review is already getting too long so I'm going to stop and just say you need to read or listen to this book. The story is compelling and romantic; I just can't say enough good things about it. I'm really looking forward to reading the next book, Collateral Damage, which I immediately bought a copy of after listening to Don't Ask Don't Tell. I hope that it also comes out in audio format at some point.

Gah! I almost forgot to mention how much I loved John Solo's performance of the audiobook. I've never listened to anything he's performed that I haven't loved!

A copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
