Favorites Friday - Valor on the Move by Keira Andrews


He’d give his life to protect the president’s son. But he never expected to risk his heart.Growing up gay in the White House hasn’t been easy for Rafael Castillo. Codenamed “Valor” by the Secret Service, Rafa feels anything but brave as he hides in the closet and tries to stay below the radar in his last year of college. His father’s presidency is almost over, and he just needs to stick to his carefully crafted plan. Once his family’s out of the spotlight, he can be honest with his conservative parents about his sexuality and his dream of being a chef.

It’s definitely not part of Rafa’s plan to get a new Secret Service agent who’s a walking wet dream, but he’s made it this long keeping his desires to himself. Besides, it’s not like Shane Kendrick would even look at him twice if it wasn’t his job.

Shane’s worked his way up through the Secret Service ranks, and while protecting the president’s shy, boring son isn’t his dream White House assignment, it’s an easy enough task since no one pays Rafa much attention. He discovers there’s a vibrant young man beneath the timid public shell, and while he knows Rafa has a crush on him, he assures himself it’s harmless. Shane’s never had room for romance in his life, and he’d certainly never cross that line with a protectee. Keeping Rafa safe at any cost is Shane’s mission.

But as Rafa gets under his skin, will they both put their hearts on the line?

This gay romance from Keira Andrews is the first part of the Valor duology. It features an age difference, Jane Austen levels of pining, forbidden love against the odds, and of course a happy ending.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Valor on the move is a wonderful read.  One cannot help but to fall in love with Rafa. As the President's son, he spent his awkward years in the spotlight, always being followed by Secret Service men. His girlfriend is actually his best friend and beard. He plans keeping his secret until his dad's term is over.

Then he meets his new Secret Service agent, Shane, and the fun begins!

Shane is thrilled to finally be working such an important detail, after working his way up the ranks. He knows that Rafa is known to be boring, shy and easy to guard but he starts to discover the real Rafa as he is protecting him. The real Rafa is sweet, kind and desperately longs to become a chef.
Shane has no problem with his assignment to protect Rafa with his life, but somewhere along the way, Shane's heart starts to get involved.

Valor on the Move is a beautiful May-Dec romance. The relationship and the way it develops between the two men is fun, exciting, and genuine.  Along with all the romance, Keira Andrews gives us some action and suspense, both of which are very well written.

I know I enjoyed this book a lot and highly recommend it.
