Ethan lost his parents, his hearing, and his social identity all in the course of a few years. But he still had his boyfriend and his best friend. Michael and Todd were incredibly supportive as Ethan struggled with crippling depression.

The night before his wedding to Michael, Ethan is filled with nervous anticipation—a little doubt, but mostly joy. He rushes home to see his groom-to-be, only to be confronted by Michael's betrayal.



Ethan had my heart from page one. He was so gentle and vulnerabl

I loved Honeymoon for One. Keira Andrews gets another book exactly right.

My romance tastes have become more and more defined and refined over the years, and I have specific types of things that I love to read about. If I had to describe a checklist of my likes, this book would be like check, check, check!

We get an MC that is hard of hearing. I love MCs that have overcome obstacles or are living with obstacles, and I haven't had many reads with deaf or mostly deaf MCs. I loved, loved, loved rea

Meet my new addition to my list of top 10 reads of all time. Seriously, this one definitely qualified.
So much.


I’ll try to wipe the tears (of joy) off my keyboard, so I can actually write a coherent review.
First of all, I LOVE age gap romances. I absolutely love them. Not all of them are good, IMO, but when they’re good, they’re spectacular, like this one.

This beautiful story starts out really bad. I honestly prefer books that bring us into the story AFTER such a terrible relationship showdown l

My new contemporary M/M romance is out today! It will be exclusively at Amazon to buy and borrow in KU for the first three months, and then will be available in wide release.

You've got an age gap, slow burn, newfound friends-to-lovers, sexual exploration, and two lonely men finding their happily ever after. I loved writing Ethan and Clay's romance, and I hope you enjoy reading it! <3

I love reading about strong characters who are dealt a shitty hand in life and try to make the most out of it.

Ethan is in college when he starts losing part of his hearing. He struggles with it and gets pretty depressed for several years. Luckily he has a supporting boyfriend, now fiancé, and an amazing best friend.

When Ethan comes home early the day before his wedding, he is not expecting to see his fiancé in bed with his best friend. Turns out the two have been in a relationship for the last 2

Ethan and Clay are perfect for each other!

Ethan has been dealt some awful hands in life. At 27 years old he's had hard knock after hard knock. The latest being a harsh betrayal from people he trusted most in his life. I was so angry on his behalf! But I loved, loved, loved how he dealt with the aftermath. Really - his actions and reactions were perfect. Thank you Keira Andrews! Too many romance novels gloss over emotional or physical pain caused by loved ones. Implying the victim should be a bet

Disclaimer: I edited this book.

Super enjoyable read. I loved the main character, Ethan, a young man coping with loss and having been recently diagnosed as a late-deafened adult. Betrayed on the eve of his wedding, he sets off on his honeymoon alone. It's a courageous and spunky move that shows the kind of man Ethan really is deep down.

I also loved the other hero, Clay. An older, Aussie from the Outback whose life was rebooted in his early forties when his wife left him for another man. Being de

Un libro realmente bonito, he disfrutado leyendo. El comienzo para uno de los personajes es duro de leer y no hace más que empujar al lector a seguir página a página para poder ser testigo de cómo consigue encontrar la felicidad.
Parece que el age gap se ha puesto de moda en el MM, no soy muy fan, a veces me resulta difícil de creer, pero la autora consigue escribir una historia llena de dulzura donde todo se desarrolla poco a poco aunque el romance de los protagonistas sea relámpago. Bonito ento

Honeymoon for One by Keira Andrews is what romance is all about.

hurt/comfort/healing + age gap + slow burn + sexual tension + OFY + KA =



In this story, we get two men who are at different stages in their lives. Ethan finds himself in Australia on a trip of a lifetime except he's alone on what was supposed to be his honeymoon. He'd just recently come out of a deep depression after the loss of his parents and his hearing. Ethan felt like he was finally coming out of it only to discover his fiance

This one just didn't work for me.

First, the "honeymoon for one" trope, where one MC is left broken-hearted right before a wedding and goes on the planned honeymoon anyway, alone, has been done to death. It's too rare a thing for a trope to have developed, and yet here we are. I'm over it.

Second, Ethan was a whiny brat. What happened to him sucked. Bad. But being in his head made me want to beat mine against a wall.

Third, this was insta-love that was not believable. The relationship development

A classic Keira Andrews! What’s not to like? May-December romance and an older guys who just got his first taste of wild gay rimming! 😂 One MC’s hearing loss is cleverly written and empathetically handled. Slow-burn, intense UST with sweet sweet moments, really really enjoyed it. And thy epilogue was absolutely beautiful.

This was nice.

No wait.

The setup was horrible. I mean absolutely horrible. It was like watching a Disney movie with the evil somebody. There is no other way to describe what happened to Ethan as anything other than evil. I can't even really get into it without seething. Assholes.

It was also a tad troublesome. There were a lot of years involved in the beginning and I struggle with stories with this kind of history. There were years of depression and years of deception. There were so many years fo

When Keyra Andrews releases a new book, I go for it. Once again, her writing suited me well.

Ethan, even if he’s still in his twenties, hasn’t had an easy life and all scrambles again on the eve of his wedding with his soon-to-be husband and his best friend’s betrayal. The honeymoon Australian Bus Tour is booked and Ethan decides to go on his own. There, Clay, the bus driver seems willing to be by his side and very mindful of his hearing impairment.

Are you old enough to remember the movie Crocodile Dundee? Well if you’re not, I’ll sum it up: hot, rugged Aussie meets younger American and they fall in love. In Keira Andrews’ Honeymoon for One, she gives us a fresh updated version of this story and adds in a few of her signature twists. This is one man’s moving journey of self-discovery, combined with some much needed healing for the other, and the result is one of the loveliest friends-to-lovers stories I’ve read in ages.

This book ticked two of my most favourites tropes:
age gap and firsts

But what impressed me most was how brilliantly Keira Andrews let us experience the world through the eyes - or rather ears - of a person who is hard of hearing. The daily hurdles they have to take, the frustration that comes with asking people to repeat stuff, not to talk about hearing aids and their pit falls. I will never look at a person HOH the same again. Thank you, Keira, for making an excellent case here!

What a sweet, moving, love story. Keira Andrews had me from the start.

I felt the pain as Ethan loses his dream future and tries to wrap his head around it while taking the trip to Australia he always wanted even though it was meant to be a honeymoon. When the tour bus driver, Clay, reaches out to Ethan to help him enjoy his tour and is especially good about working with Ethan's hearing loss, Ethan figures a little crush on the older, straight man, is just the way to make the trip even

We've got Clay



Typical Aussie bloke, mid 40s.

We've got Ethan



Little bit neurotic, has needed to grow up well before his age. Late 20s.

I loooove me a good may-december romance and this one was swoooon worthy!!

Ethan gets the shock of his life the day before his wedding and I actually really loved all the intricacies of every conversation revolving around that incident. It was much more in-depth and well thought out than any other book I'd read with the same trope.

Anyway, after that Ethan

Ok so I liked this book ... but Ethan bugged the shit out of me. I had no issues with the deafness, it was his inner monologues about being hurt by his fiancé & best mate - it was relentless and annoying ! I get he was hurt, shocked and all things sad but he was just too much of a victim. The Aussie references were cute, but poor bugger being deaf and coping with slang was a tough one LOL. This was pretty sweet, not my favorite read of the week, but I know many people have loved it.

I have to say this first and get it over with. I LOVED the Aussie slang so much! It made the book even more enjoyable in my opinion. And also, it made Clay all the more endearingly sweet.

Second. I LOVED Clay! He was just this blend of everything good. At times I thought dude... you are so gullible/good hearted but dam it if that didn’t make me love him harder. I was really enjoying his brand of normal. Just a good bloke going his way making t

3.5 Stars!

Solid read. I enjoyed the second half more than the first.

I thought this one read a bit slow. It took awhile for things to start to brew between Ethan and Clay. And despite everything Ethan had gone through, which was a lot, I found him a bit whiny.

But things picked up in the second half especially once Ethan and Clay gave things a go.

Low angst, with some nice steam...I enjoyed this one.

Another truly wonderful romance from Keira Andrews. She never fails to bring all the emotional connections to her love stories and this one is no exception.

I fell for Ethan so hard, just like Clay did :) I wanted to punch (view spoiler) really hard too, right in the "googlies" to coin a cricketing phrase.

Although this looks, on the surface, as a fairly typical "boy gets hurt, boy goes away solo, boy meets new boy" holiday style romance, it's far removed from tha

I'm still feeling warm and happy now days after finishing the book. Honeymoon for One is a very sweet, heartwarming book with all the right feelings. I think I read somewhere that it's insta-love and... I don't agree... they kiss for the first time after around 50% of the book and that's just a real nice slow burn romance in my opinion.

OMG!!! This is so wonderfully sexy and sweet!!! A total comfort read!

4.5 Stars! This book, I couldn't put it down!!!

The beginning broke me. Ethan goes on his honeymoon alone after walking in on his fiance with another man the night before his wedding. Although this first part had a bit too much of internal monologuing going on, it soon gave way to straight up confrontation, rage, and despair.

But worry not about the angst level here, my lovelies, Ethan soon distracts himself from his idiot of an

I really liked this!

I hadn’t really thought of Australia as a holiday destination since it’s literally at the other side of the planet from me but after this, it’s movedway up on my bucket list!

I’m feeling too lazy to write a more in-depth review so just get this if you are in the mood for some good old fashioned romance with zero drama.

Oh, I simply adored this book. Man, I missed Kiera Andrews's writing so much - almost always her stories are just so good and engaging, written well with interesting characters and interesting romance.

After Ethan walks in on his husband-to-be fucking his best friend the day before their wedding, he's shocked, heartbroken, and angry. He thought he and Michael were doing well after he got out of his depression about his hearing - Ethan has a fairly rare condition where he'd been hearing all his l

3.5 stars! Liked it! 😁 Story was a typical May-December romance where Ethan (May) gets a rude shock on the eve of his wedding and in a moment of defiance decides to go on the planned honeymoon to Australia by himself. There he meets Clay (December); a laid back, cricket-loving Outback hottie who is straight. Ethan and Clay form an unlikely friendship with Ethan crushing on Clay not knowing if his feeling are being reciprocated. 💕

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, paranormal and fantasy 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 fict ...more
“No way. I drove her down to Brissie and made sure he was a decent fellow first. Brisbane, I mean.” Ethan’s jaw dropped. “Did you say you took your wife to meet the guy she was leaving you for?” Clay shrugged. “Had to make sure he wasn’t one of those lunatics you hear about.” 0 likes
“It was easier to hear the lower tones of a man’s voice, but with an Aussie accent, the different, broader vowel sounds were already proving a challenge. Consonants were always the hardest for Ethan to hear, and Shiv seemed to drop them altogether on some words, especially the letter “r,” although he couldn’t be sure since he didn’t have Michael to ask.” 0 likes
