New Release-Review & Giveaway: ROAD TO THE SUN by Keira Andrews

Paperback: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 70,000 words


A desperate father. A lonely ranger. Unexpected love that can't be denied.

Jason Kellerman's life revolves around his eight-year-old daughter. Teenage curiosity with his best friend led to Maggie's birth, her mother tragically dying soon after. Insistent on raising his daughter himself, he was disowned by his wealthy family and has worked tirelessly to support Maggie-even bringing her west on a dream vacation. Only twenty-five, Jason hasn't had time to even think about romance. So the last thing he expects is to question his sexuality after meeting an undeniably attractive park ranger.

Ben Hettler's stuck. He loves working in the wild under Montana's big sky, but at forty-one, his love life is non-existent, his ex-boyfriend just married and adopted, and Ben's own dream of fatherhood feels impossibly out of reach. He's attracted to Jason, but what's the point? Besides the age difference and skittish Jason's lack of experience, they live thousands of miles apart. Ben wants more than a meaningless fling.

Then a hunted criminal takes Maggie hostage, throwing Jason and Ben together in a desperate and dangerous search through endless miles of mountain forest. If they rescue Maggie against all odds, can they build a new family together and find a place to call home?

Road to the Sun is a May-December gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring adventure, angst, coming out, sexual discovery, and of course a happy ending.

Carra's Review

I'm one of those people that normally can do without kids in books in the romance genre.  But every now and then a story like Road To The Sun will come along and for just a moment-or at least for the hours I spend reading the story-I am totally enraptured.  This story not only has romance, it's an age-gap/May-December story filled with angsty goodness, suspense, self discovery, and has some pretty fantastic characters to carry it all.

I absolutely adored Jason.  I admired his love for and dedication to his daughter Maggie, and his strength and determination to care for her no matter what-even at the young age he was when she was born.  Jason and Maggie have a wonderful relationship and a strong bond, and boy is she one intelligent young lady!  Both of them sparked something for Ben, who's a strong and protective but lonely man.  Ben and Jason get off to an uncertain start that becomes infinitely complicated when Maggie is kidnapped.

It's at that point that the suspense and tension of the story skyrockets, and I refused to pull myself away from the book from that point forward.  Well, I actually didn't want to pull away from the very beginning.  But once Maggie is taken, my brain was fully embroiled in the action and excitement.

Yes, things between Ben and Jason happen fast.  Yes, it's all super-intense and shrouded in the events of Maggie's abduction.  But the chemistry between the two men is still there, still valid, and still going strong all the way to the end.  Oh, and even if it all might seem a bit insta-lovey, the epilogue pulls everything back into focus for the long term.

4.5 stars for Road to the Sun, and I definitely recommend this story to any M/M romance fan.  This story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and M/M sexual content.  Final note from the lady who can do without kids in her romance books?  Maggie is simply amazing, and even at the young age of eight years old, I was able to easily identify with her character, and the story would not be the same without her witty comebacks and intelligent voice.

Author Bio

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."
