Publisher's Summary

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? 

Contains mature themes.

Loved it

Great narration and story written by Keira Andrews. I really enjoyed how the older MC fought against giving into the attraction between him and the younger MC and how the younger MC stubbornness wouldn’t let him give up on getting what he wanted for his life.

Loved it!

Rafi is so adorably awkward. I love that there was a real plot behind the romance. Funny, sweet, sad, and a lot of fun to read.

Love at First Bite

I love m/m romance, coming out stories and coming of age books. This book is all of these and more. There’s action, adventure, May to September, cooking and heartache. There is a difficult bittersweet scene on the run that is just raw and beautiful. Keira Andrews ripped my heart up with the melancholy and stitched it up again with a sexy hea. On to Iggy Toma. Goodness, he is the perfect voice to tell Valor’s story. Of course, I love all his work and one click him without question.

Horrible narration!

I adored this book on print , but what a disappointment in audible this was.
It’s not a keeper for me . I could not even finish it, very unpalatable
to listen to.
Someone please Re-do this audio with a different narrator.
This book deserves better!!

Great listen!

The ratings on Goodreads are surprisingly low for this book, but I’ve no idea why. It’s many times better than other m/m books in this genre and deserves much more. Perhaps Iggy Toma’s narration brings the book to life in a way reading the words doesn’t. He is a great narrator. Either that or people have a problem with the age difference (21 vs 39). As long as no one is a teenager I don’t really have a problem with age differences so long as everyone is happy - and I found it added to the story in this book.

I was completely engaged in this book, believed in the characters, enjoyed and story, and it was hot too. I look forward to reading the next book in the series!

Highly enjoyable!

Rafa, 21, is the youngest son of the US President and has lived most of his life in the closet. He falls for Shane, 40, who is newly assigned to his security detail. Both have a lot to lose if things go wrong. I wondered whether this would be tacky given the age difference, but it wasn’t. It explored the pressures of keeping a lid on your sexuality for the sake of politics, had some thrilling action scenes, and developed the two characters well. Excellent performance by Iggy Toma!
