I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Captain Jake Woodley is a marine helicopter pilot who survived a crash in Afghanistan and came home hailed as a hero. He's suffering PTSD and survivor's guilt, but doesn't seek treatment because it will ground him from active duty. He is part of the crew that pilots helicopters for the Prez, VP and press corps. He doesn't want to give this up, and instead spends his off-flight duty hours getting blind drunk. While attending a White House party, he's approached by Matt "Beau" Beaumont--and given an indecent proposal, one Jake doesn't turn down. They spend that night together and decide on more--which is new for Jake. He's never "come out" because he's never wanted a relationship, but this changes with Beau. Beau is a fashion reporter, a big demotion from his downsized DC newspaper reporting job. He's kinda sensitive over this, and finds Jake's esteemed position to be admirable and intimidating. In the effort to boost himself to a new byline, Matt undertakes some investigative reporting--which plays into the intrigue subplot that takes over the second half of the book. Jake's alcoholism is a problem at work, and it seems he's being given strange assignments as a result--he begins to wonder if he's being set-up as a fall guy. And Beau is unwilling to be with a drunk; he's lived that life before. It's clear that Jake is struggling, but he works hard, not only for his career, but also for Beau's approval.
