What do you do when the person you love is off limits?
Fraternization within the military is a serious offense. Inappropriate relationships between seniors and their juniors are prohibited because they can adversely affect the members and goals of the organization. Layla and Ethan are unaware of each other’s military status until after sparks have already flown and feelings have already grown. With their careers on the line and the threat of disciplinary action, the lovers are forced to make one of life’s most difficult decisions.
Layla is an enlisted member of the US Navy who meets the perfect guy while she’s on leave. After several fun-filled days and passionate nights, her world is turned upside down when she discovers Ethan is also in the Navy. But not only that – he’s an officer, which means any personal relationship between them is prohibited by military law. Is Layla strong enough to walk away from the only man to hold her heart?
Ethan is a well-respected aviator – a war hero. He meets Layla during a dark moment in his life and falls for her instantly. But the discovery that their relationship is forbidden, catapults the decorated officer into a place darker than the one Layla helped pull him from. He’s forced to choose between the profession that means everything to him and the woman he’s waited his entire life for.
In order to avoid disciplinary action and protect their careers, Layla and Ethan will need to put an end to their relationship. Unfortunately, they’ve already gotten in too deep. Can military regulations separate lovers who are destined to be together?
