Valor Series


They’re free of the White House, but can their forbidden romance survive in the real world?

With his father no longer president, twenty-two-year-old Rafa Castillo can finally be with ex-Secret Service agent Shane Kendrick. Shane’s given up his career for Rafa, a move his fellow agents question the sanity and morality of. Eager to get away from the questions and judgement, Rafa and Shane are building a new life together in Australia. Though Shane struggles with nightmares and his over-protective instincts while Rafa fights his own insecurity, they love each other more than ever.

Now they just have to get through a visit from the former president and first lady.

Rafa’s parents certainly don’t approve of his romance with forty-year-old Shane, and they’re determined to make him see reason. They don’t see how their son could possibly be happy settling down with an older man, and they question Shane’s motives. Shane and Rafa just want a normal life together—but when they must suddenly battle for survival, they fight to prove their fierce love can withstand any threat.

This gay romance from Keira Andrews is the conclusion of the Valor duology. It features a May-December age difference, sex on the beach, and of course a happy ending.

My Review:

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

This book follows the HEA from the first book, which can be a bit tricky. However, it does it perfectly! We get to follow Rafa and Shane while they are trying to solidify their relationship.

Rafa and Shane are now openly together, living in Australia and enjoying the freedom both from the White House, America, and their lives almost completely. Rafa has not started Cordon Bleu course yet, and Shane has not started with his work yet.

But this all changes once the former President of the USA and his wife come to visit Australia…and Rafa. Rafa still tries to please them, to get their approval, but he is not a scared son who needs to be perfect all the time. And he is not prepared to give up Shane, even though his parents, especially his mother, do not approve of, accusing him of being a ‘cradle robber’ and other things.

But, as in the first book, a traumatic event occurs. This time there are no terrorists, and yet the family is forced to spend a night in Australia’s wilderness. The events that unfold during that night lead to change of Rafa’s parents’ attitude towards him and Shane.

And at the end, we are treated with a HEA that puts the end of the first book almost to the shame! It is a perfect ending to a great series and to be honest, I am sorry that it is over, although adding more would probably just complicate and possibly ruin the story.

These two books were my first books by Keira Andrews, but I will (and have already) pick more of her books in the future!

So if you are interested in a cute read with some excitement and a lot of love and happy ending, or if you just want to relax, give the books a chance! 🙂

About Keira

After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, fantasy, and paranormal fiction and — although she loves delicious angst along the way — Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said:

“The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”
