In the dystopian future, two men discover attraction isn't just dangerous, it's deadly.

Two generations ago, the world was annihilated by a series of catastrophic environmental events. The remaining survivors were driven closer and closer to big city centers-damaged but not destroyed-divvied into sixteen identical international territories ruled by the Company.

Oppressive to the core, the Company has one rule in order to recoup the world's devastated population: homosexuality and deviant sexual behaviors are hanging offenses. First time offenders are last-time offenders.

It is the year 2070. Commander Caspar Cannon has a stellar military reputation-and a life-threatening secret. When a revolution rips through the territories, Cannon is ordered to escort Company Executive Nathaniel Rice to a secure location. Leaving the besieged city behind, their journey becomes a minefield of sabotage, betrayal, secrets . . . and intense desire for one another.

Cannon's militant self-repression takes a direct hit, his suspicions warring with passion for a man who can never be his, not while the Company remains in power. True to his mission, he delivers Nathaniel to the safe bunker where a fate he never expected awaits him.

Warren's dystopian M/M novel is completely unique and she totally proves how talented she is at writing romance. The author is edgy and daring, and readers will agree hands down that this first installment in the Don't Tell trilogy is unlike any other futuristic book on the market today. The heroes are strong, the plot is easy to follow and paced perfectly, and it's a realistic view of the future. Although it's quite lengthy, nothing should have been omitted in order to fully absorb the rare storyline in this unforgettable debut that will have everyone gossiping about at the water cooler

DNF @7% Book source ~ NetGalley In the year 2070, deviant sexual behavior including being gay, is a death sentence. Caspar Cannon, a Commander in the Company, is gay and has to keep it a closely guarded secret. Not easy to do when he meets a hot guy at an illegal party outside the territory. I had to DNF this book at 7%. The writing style makes me grit my teeth. It’s not unlike nails on a blackboard to me. It is definitely not to my liking, but may be perfectly fine with others, so don't take my 1 bite rating as gospel. I did put it down with a tremendous amount of relief though.

I was unsure how I would feel about this book when I first started it. The beginning of the book was very dry in my opinion, but after getting past that part the story was just amazing. I didn’t want to wait to keep being able to read more into Casper and Blondie’s journey. I am a complete sucker for military type books, and this book had that part of it down pat I believe. Casper’s character was one that many military members can relate to because he has to hide who he really is in fear of death. When he finds out that the man who he has had a crush on for the past several months turns out to be someone who could order his death, his feelings become unsure. Blondie’s character seems like the type that just goes with the flow of things and he does nothing to hide his attraction towards Casper. There were some parts of the book that I felt were stretched out. Some parts where the characters were talking to each other just felt like they were going on and on. That was also the case with some of the details that were explained about certain parts of the story. Overall though, I did enjoy everything that happened during this book. The world that Casper and Blondie lived in was one that had its good parts as well as the bad. The author was able to explain the way that the buildings looked and how the people were created very well. All in all, this is a really good read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

So good!! The subject matter is not my usual fare, but I have to say that completely I fell in love with Caspar and Blondie. I smiled, I got angry, I cried...all ranges of emotion. I just really enjoyed this and I look forward to the next installment in the series.

This book is different then the books I normally read but it was a good read. It's a futuristic war fare of how people had to live one way straight, if you were to be gay, you were as good as dead. Freelanders was a place to be your own person, didn't matter who you were or what your preference is. You have a love story between to soldiers facing war and freedom.
