I'll Be Your Drill, Soldier

I'll Be Your Drill, Soldier - Crystal Rose FUCK YES!

This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It was funny, hot and just perfection. I read this on a rainy afternoon when I had nothing to do. To this day that was one of the best afternoons I have had. Reading this book made me emotional and fall in love. I found myself wishing for more. And this is not a short book. It's long and detailed. I devoured it.

Ryan Gracin joins the army on a whim. He can't finish college and needs to do something with his life. What he doesn't expect is to make three best friends and meet the hottest man he has ever seen. Philip Grabowski AKA Big Daddy is a scary motherfucker. He drives Ryan insane with lust. But one event changes things. Philip kisses Ryan. From there we get to see a struggle between Ryan and Philip that is full of sexual tension.

I loved that about this book and I thought Crystal Rose did an amazing job with all that. It moves along and on the graduation day. Ryan and Philip have sex in Phil's office. We also learn Phil has a daughter. After that scene we get a time jump and some contact between Ryan and his friends through letters. A few years later he and Phil catch up again and a relationship begins. The relationship was something that had to happen, and was fantastic when it did.

Some of this book made me laugh so hard I had tears in my eyes. Then we had a couple of scenes that made my heart ache. Both were done extremely well. Every macho aspect of this book was so good. I wanted it to keep going and even during the tough scenes I was desperate for it to not end. The nicknames and the secondary characters and the plot just had such a nice place in the story. I loved Sandy and Sherrie especially. They were fanfuckintastic!

The ending gave me so much to smile about. Ryan Grabowski! Which tells us he and Phil married. Recently I saw the author is planning a sequel, which made me smile and jump up and down. I am super excited about it. I think everyone will like something about this book. Even if you are not a fan of military stories, you might just enjoy this book.

Highly recommend it. GO. BUY. IT!
