A friends-to-lovers new adult MM romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Stand-alone with HEA and no cliff-hanger.

Moving to California was supposed to be my fresh start. A clean slate. An opportunity to drop the façade, escape the lies, find a focus, and just be myself.

FIVE SWEET STARS for Austin and Keaton 💖💜💖💜!!!


If someone had told me a year ago that I was going to read my first M/M romance book now and that I will love it, I would have told him he was joking.

But that happens when one of your favorite authors writes a new book and it’s also part of your favorite series.

Siobhan, you did it again!

You made me open my mind to new things and for that I am grateful!

She has the ability to create from the greatest taboo stories like books about Faye and Kyler,

Adoring Keaton 3 Stars✨🍃

This book peeks into LGBT, and it was sweetly done. However, there was a touch of reality....beware there is homophobia , and I find reading it, NEVER to be pretty.
Irritating wordage:,The overuse of the word “man” in a couple dove me a bit nuts. The romance drama at times was a bit much at times. The description of the character...well I had a hard time picturing them.

But, what made the book for me was the humor added. It was done well. And some funny parts that I will

Web-Photo-Editor “How long have you been into guys, Keats?”
I draw a brave breath before admitting something I’ve never told anyone .
“All my life, man.”
His minty breath fans over my lips as he whispers.
“How long have you been into me?”
My hand gravitates to the back of his head, and I hold him as firmly as he’s holding me.
“From the very first second I met you,”

Eeeeep! I popped my Siobhan Davis cherry with this sexiness and now I'm completely hooked!!

Adoring Keaton is everything you'll want in a new adult MM romance. It's sexy, exciting, angsty, and has so much heart. The characters are amazing and their journey to unconditional love and acceptance was such a pleasure to witness.

The writing is great. The plot, pace, and setup all perfectly executed. And man oh man, the hook. I am so primed and ready for the next book. That's truly the best thing abou
We're almost to the end of the Kennedy Boys series, and with Adoring Keaton Siobhan Davis adds another hooking story filled with angst, drama and sexiness about one of the youngest Kennedy boys and his struggle to accept and be comfortable in his own skin.

Siobhan Davis is a very skilled author with many books under her belt. She knows how to write an engaging story with the right blend of the necessary elements: great characters, a setting the reader can picture with detail and a plot that w

“To courage and to truth.” Two virtues, one simple but powerful toast - and I can’t think of a better thematic summation of this amazing story. I knew I would love sweet Keaton’s story, but I had no idea the depths to which his story would move me, how Keaton and Austen would totally own my heart. THIS STORY IS EVERYTHING. Keaton and Austen filled me with such love. Adoring Keaton has everything I adore about this amazing series- angst, that Kennedy family drama, a dynamic cast of riveting prima ...more

I've just recently begun reading MM romances, but I can say with absolute certainty that this will always be my favorite book in this subgenre. I have read the entire Kennedy series, and every snippet we got of Keaton made me want even more of him, and goodness I fell in love with every part of his beautiful, damaged soul. And Austen? That sexy teddy bear OWNED me. These two are beyond perfect for each other; their chemistry, the beautiful friendship & connection they share, the intense sexual a ...more

Once again, Siobhan Davis shows the depth of her writing style. ADORING KEATON is romantically charged, endearing and so filled with upheaval and raw emotion, one cannot help but feel for these characters. How often do we all wish for unconditional love or a love we do not have to hide?

Ms. Davis brings Keaton and Austen’s story to life as they overcome any obstacle that stands in their way, all to be true to themselves and each other. Often, it isn’t easy to be “different,” but it is heartwarmin

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 𝟓/𝟓 Overall Rating: Adoring Keaton, is book nine in the Kennedy Boys Series, and Siobhan Davis’s first dip into the world of M/M romance! Although Adoring Keaton can be read as a standalone, as it focuses on an entirely new Kennedy and couple, I would recommend starting at the beginning of the series to better enjoy and understand the Kennedy’s and all that comes with their world, as well as to also avoid any spoilers from previous books if you int

An emotionally charged and achingly beautiful MM romance that will put you through the wringer. The HEA won’t come easy. The journey will test you, but the love will keep you pushing through.

In true Kennedy fashion, Keaton’s happily ever after won’t come easy. Accepting his true self and then dealing with the fall out will put his new relationship to the test. This is a story about embracing who your are and owning it because you are worth it and you deserve happiness.

Absolutely everything I was waiting for. Adoring Keaton was one of my MOST anticipated books this year and it did NOT disappoint! I loved the connection between the characters, but that they also went through "coming out" process together. It was nice to see them share that experience together, to have both of those feelings together allowed them to be able to see where the other was coming from and gave patience to each other and their relationship. As with every book you're also g

It's been a hot minute since I read any books in the Kennedy Boy series. You do not need to read any of the other books to read this one. However, there are spoilers in this book of what has happened in previous books. So if you don't want anything to be ruined, then I would highly suggest reading them all in order (don't worry – it's truly worth it).

I was pleasantly surprised with Adoring Keaton. This is Siobhan's first MM romance (I have read others before so this wasn't a deterrent for me). W
Ashley Estep The Art of Reading
Adoring Keaton is the perfect addition to the Kennedy Boys series. Siobhan Davis has delivered another amazing story with Keaton and Austen.

Keaton is 1/3 of the Kennedy triplets. He’s y’all, dark and sexy as sin. Women throw themselves at his feet at every turn. He’s hiding who he is from the world.

Austen Hayes is a tattooed, football star with a huge secret. Telling the world you’re gay is hard enough, but imagine being a football player in the spotlight.

These two may just be my new Kennedy f

Even in a series with a cast of phenomenal couples there is always one couple that stands out and in the case of the Kennedy Boys series that couple is Keaton and Austin!

Sweet and sexy this couple brought all the angst of fighting to be who they were and loving who they wanted into the thick of their attraction. In true Siobhan Davis style their love did not come without its fair share of hurdles and cruel manipulations but what stood out was this pair's personal interactions remained pure of he

If you are a fan of the Kennedy boys series, or Siobhan Davis in general, you need to read this book. It might be the best she’s ever written.

I was truly lucky to get to read a beta version of this book. I love having that privilege, because I can't get enough of Siobhan's books, so being able to get to read them before anyone else, well I love getting my grabby hands on them!!!

If there’s two things I love in this book community, it’s Siobhan Davis and MM romance. So when she confirmed that Keaton is gay and his book would be MM, I just about died and I knew she would kill it. Now after having read Adoring Keaton, I can say my initial reaction was spot on.

I have loved the Kennedy family since day one, high drama and all. Keaton has always held such a special place in my heart because you just knew, KNEW that he was so good. From his close relationship with Faye, to the

So I have to be up in three hours for work but Adoring Keaton was worth it.
Keaton’s story was one that had everyone on their edge of their anxious anticipation. Siobhan Davis did not leave me disappointed.
Keaton’s story was emotional and angsty and ragey but it’s just what his story called for. Davis really transported you into his head as he warred internally with the struggle of not only truly accepting himself but the stress over if others would. My heart ached for him, raged for h

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

First of all, I love all the Kennedy boys! Keaton has always been in my mind since the first book. We got clues about him from the very first Kennedy boys book, and I've always felt for him and looked forward to reading his story.

This book and this story was just what I needed now after a few weeks of feeling numb due to all the stuff happening all around the world. Even so, this book is a book and a story that our whole world needs! Our

I have enjoyed every book in this amazing series, and Keaton's story is one of my favorites. I loved Keaton and Austen, and I just wanted everything to work out for them. But it wouldn't be a Kennedy Boys book without all that delicious heartbreaking drama. And drama there was. It was so great getting to catch up with all the characters from the other books, especially Faye and Ky. I truly want to throttle Kent, but I'm also looking forward to his book so I can finally understand why he is the w ...more

I absolutely LOVED this MM romance! I am so sad that this series of brothers is coming to an end. Each book has all of the beloved characters who I've come to know over the course of the series, and this book was no different.

I fell SO HARD for both Keaton, the sensitive triplet, and Austen, the confident football player. Their relationship was so natural, so easy, so HOT; and I loved every interaction between them whether they were just hanging out "being guys" or experiencing their love life

I was luck enough to get an ARC of this amazing book. Let me just say Sibiohn has done it again.

If you are a fan of the Kennedy Boy's then this book is a must read. I have absolutely been waiting for Keats since I discovered Kyler. His kindness and relationship with Faye made him my quick favorite.

This book is a m/m romance. Keaton and Austen meet accidentally and become friends and roommates and thats where the chemistry and magic happens. From the first page to the last you get to feel what
Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers
Adoring Keaton is the ninth standalone in the addicting Kennedy Boys series by Siobhan Davis. I have been following the Kennedy Brothers series the very beginning. I feel like family, Keaton is one of the triplets and we met them at fifteen! They are now turning twenty-one and coming into their own.

Keaton needed a fresh start. One without his family in the same state. They didn’t understand it but he needed it. He thought he would be able to be freer to be himself if he wasn’t in the spotlight

OMG!!! My heart. I have loved Keaton from the very first book and have been anticipating getting his story for so long now. This book was definitely worth the wait. Keaton and Austen's story is beautiful and I didn't want it to end. It was my first time reading a MM romance but Siobhan wrote it amazingly. This is my new favourite of this series, and I'm highly anticipating Kent's story.

Adoring Keaton by Siobhan Davis is my first MM romance. I was very unsure and cautious about myself opening for this book. But the author proved to me, it is good to try and experience new things. Because in the end, we all hurt, care, and love in the same way.

The author took me for a wonderful and very emotional journey about acceptance, courage, and unconditional love. Adoring Keaton is also a story moving very important topics like strong prejudice, fear from being rejected and judged by you
