It's been a long while since I've read a good romantic suspense novel. Saving Valencia didn't disappoint and in fact is now added to my favorites list.

Silas is a self-made 'rich man' who had a difficult childhood and lives his life as a focused but playful bachelor. Life is fully in his control and he likes things done his way . . . until a plane crash on a deserted island proves he's not really in control at all.

Val is a sexy survivalist. She teaches courses and knows how to live off the land.

Good story between adventure, romance and introspection
The story based on the discovery of two beings who had a difficult past, between the unjustified violence and the abandonment, and who were built in spite of that without opening themselves to the others until they find themselves trapped on a volcanic island after a crash.
I liked the adventure part which allows to understand the new links that are woven between the characters. I don't know if the scene to stop the hypothermia is realistic,

I enjoyed the writing style by Ms Walker very much. Her characters are well developed and interesting. Val is one heck of a feisty woman and I thought that Silas was perfect for her. The storyline was well thought out apart from one thing which is a pet peeve of mine - numbers! Counting how many could be taken on the rescue home?? How many were there since the two pilots were dead?? Should have been more than enough space but then there wouldn't have been the whole story of Val and Silas left on ...more

They give up hope of being rescued until Valencia finds them. Valencia is a wild woman preferring to be on her own she doesn’t like people and she has the scars to prove it.

Excellent

This book was full of suspense. I started and finished the book in the same day. While I love a HEA ending i really did not see it here until the very end. Loved the two main characters who were really only two characters of the entire story. There was one minor character other than these two which worked out here. The story had some very real aspects to it, i.e., the caves, food, drinking water. Good research. Not 100% sure fires in the caves was correct, but great story especially tha

Surviving and loving

Saving Valencia by Kelli Walker is a suspenseful story of survival. Valencia is a true survivor, turning her experience into a talent and career. Silas benefits from her knowledge and experience in a very dangerous situation.
This story is filled with danger, suspense, need, healing, love and some great chemistry.

An very intense story that was so well written you feel as if you are part of the story. Silas and Val's adventure was dangerous as well as seductive. The chemistry was platable as the story moved from one dangerous encounter to another. I loved how the author was able to weave the storyline between the their personal demons and the demon they faced as they struggled for their lives. I did feel more connected to Silas even though the story was filled with flashbacks of Val's life. His presence d ...more

This was a powerful story. The struggles were hard. The conflicts were heartbreaking. The turmoil were unbelievable. The trust built was incredible. This book is worth reading, you never know what you could learn. The author did a magnificent job on this book and deserves a five star rating. It was well written and well executed. The storyline was spot on and was flowing.

Keli Walker has created yet another captivating alpha male romance this time with a kick butt heroine who unfortunately learned from an early age to save herself. Protecting Valencia is a survival romance story full of island rescues, passion, heartache, tears, fears, and love. A quick read that readers won’t want to put down.

This is a M/M story so if this isn't your usual read please don't leave a negative review. The storyline is well written and engaging. The characters have emotion depth that allows you to connect to them and are realistic. The chemistry is hot and the sex scenes are scorching. The plot flows seamlessly throughout the story. I would recommend this book.

I could not put this book down, it was very interesting and had me eagerly turning the pages. Great storyline and characters, I had to admit I made a few judgements relating to the story along the way, but I was so wrong, and I am glad I was because the way Kelli Walker wrote this was much better than anything I thought of!

In fact I enjoyed it so much I am going to start it all over again! ❤

Great read

There were a few errors but not enough to turn me away. The story line was great and the ending sweet. Two broken people found away to make one another whole by coming together and sharing their strengths and weakness with each other. Loved the story.

Things happen for a reason

Val is a survivalist. She hired to save some rich guys from an island where their plane crashed. Silias was more than a spoiled rich guy. He and Val got stuck together and learned more than how to survive the island. Good read!!!
