Only twenty-five and a single dad, Jason hasn’t had time to even think about romance. Disowned by his wealthy family, he’s scrimped and s

LOVED! Keira Andrews wowed me again with this one!

It's been so long since I've had a book that I couldn't put down that I actually forgot how it felt. That feeling of I need to keep reading just doesn't happen for me that often anymore, and so I (unwisely) started this book at about 11 pm last night. At 4 am this morning, I was kicking myself, but I just couldn't put it down!

Certain parts of this book were exactly my taste and certain parts were not m

This isn't a typical romance, but Keira Andrews doesn't do typical; she has a wide range and writes with equal ease about the gay Amish as she does about the zombie apocalypse.

Road to the Sun is part love story, part suspense/thriller, part sexual discovery.

What begins as a tale of two men—Ben, a lonely 41-year-old ranger, and Jason, a timid 25-year-old single father, meeting and tentatively forming a friendship—turns into a scary, heart-pounding adventure when Jason's 8-year-old daughter

This story was yet another shining example of just how good Keira Andrews is at what she does. I mean, at this point, no one is sitting around questioning if the woman can write. It’s simply a fact. It doesn’t even matter what topics or genres Andrews is tackling, she approaches everything with a deft hand, creating one gripping narrative after another, always featuring characters that carry emotional depth and feel tangible to the reader.

Whoops, I got lost fangirling there for a minute.

I have read multiple books written by Keira Andrews, and so far I have loved every one of them. Though this book isn't my favorite by this author, I did really enjoy it.

Jason is a 25 year old single father, trying to raise his 8 year old daughter as best as he can. Maggie was born, after a curious and awkward stumble with his best friend, when Jason was 17 years old. Maggie's mother died in a terrible accident, when Maggie was only a few months old. Instead of being supportive,  Jason's parents

Second chances at life. At achieving your dreams. Of finding love and family. Keira Andrews has done it again. I truly enjoyed this May/September romance.

At 25, Jason Kellerman is too young to have an 8 year old daughter (everyone says so). He's also proof that determination and dedication can really go a long way in life. Jason comes from a wealthy family and should have had a successful future. But youthful curiosity with his best friend Amy resulted in Maggie being born when Jason was 17. Th

New re-release! I decided that the title and cover for Road to the Sun were a little too dreamy and not really indicative of the actiony-suspensey vibe of the plot. Dar Albert designed an awesome new cover, and the brilliant Annabeth Albert suggested the title. You can borrow in KU or grab it for only $2.99 this week only!

I really liked this father daughter story. Even with the drama it still turned out to be a sweet read.

Jason is 25 and the young father of 8 year old Maggie. Jason being the good dad he is has taken his daughter on a camping trip in the mountains of Montana. Maggie loves everything nature and is very knowledgeable in this area. While doing a planned trail they meet Ranger Ben. He's very sweet and patient with Maggie answering any and all her questions. Jason takes notice of not only how nice

Jason is a twenty-five-year-old father to an eight-year-old girl, Maggie. They went to Glacier National Park for camping. Jason was so young when he had Maggie. People thought he can’t handle the situation with her, even his own parents (actually they wanted to take her from him and raise her as his sister, WTH!). but he somehow showed they were wrong and in fact he is a fantastic father even with wrong decisions. He was a little overwhelmed with everything and that was my big problem w

This one was pretty good. It didn't wow me and it wasn't my favorite Keira Andrews but I liked it.

Nothing to really complain about. Other than maybe the low steam.

Likable characters. Decent plot. Low angst.

Quick, easy read.

A hunky park ranger, a lonely young father and a spitfire of a tweener. What's not to love? We've got a slow burn, some intense peril, explosive sex after pent-up feelings are expressed and a touch of relationship angst. Win!

And, for the record, this epilogue goes down in the Epilogue Hall of Fame™. It was brilliant and deserves the Andy Dwyer roses of joy.



If the blurb doesn't interest you, I highly recommend you pick up The Road to the Sun anyway for the epilogue alone. Fantastic, warm/fuzzy en

This low rating pains me because Keira Andrews but this didn't work at all for me.

At first it was all about Jason and Maggie, then it was all about the mystery, then it was Jason and his parents, then Jason and his brother, then Jason and Maggie again. The MCs didn't get a lot of page time together. Actually, after the mystery/suspense got resolved (view spoiler) Sorry, the romance felt too little

There were many things I liked about this and some things that kinda rubbed me a bit off but overall I enjoyed this romantic suspense.

Like the blurb says, Jason is a single dad on vacation in Montana for his nature loving daughter, Maggie. There, they meet up with friendly charismatic ranger Ben, and sparks fly. When a killer on the run takes Maggie hostage, Jason and Ben are forced into a harrowing situation that obviously will bond them forever.

Wow, I mean, I'm so blindsided by how much I did not like this. The writing was smooth and easy to read, yes, but I didn't realize this was a 'daughter is kidnapped in the wilderness' plot (because I saw age gap and stopped reading the summary) and while it could've gone well.. I didn't like it. It happens early on and thankfully resolves itself without being dragged out too much, much like the younger hero's confusion about his sexual preference, but still. Things were very insta, very intense, ...more

While I really liked this, I didn't love it.

I was mostly missing some more relationship development since there was almost none. I felt like Ben and Jason didn't have enough page time together for me to fully believe in their romance.

I still liked the premise of the story and I loved the bonding during a traumatic experience.

I could have done without the dinner drama at the parent's house. It didn't really add anything to the story for me. I kept thinking that if the whole side plot ab

I loved this one. I haven't read that many romantic suspense books in mm, but this one was a great blend of romance and plot. The romance between Ben and Jason had a nice slowish build and nice UST that kept me reading. There was angst, but the book is not overwhelmingly dark. Hit every sweet spot for me. Recommended.

Keira Andrews seriously cannot put a foot wrong. Book after book, she keeps telling intriguing stories about characters you want to know and love. Road to the Sun was no exception. Buy it. Read it. Thank me later. ;)

**3.5 stars** What a sweet romance full of nice feelings !!

Jason raises his 8-year-old girl, Maggie, on his own and decides to take her camping in Montana. There, he meets a sexy ranger, Ben, and for the first time, he experiences some attraction towards somebody. But these sweet vacations are brutally interrupted when a murderer in escape abducts Maggie.

It took me some times to get invested in this story, but the last third of the book ? That was brilliant and I may have shed some tears during

I used to love Keira Andrews' books -- but I guess my reading preference and taste has changed over the years. So I think it's time for me to part with Keira Andrews. Her writing just doesn't click with me anymore.

First of all, the story wasn't really what I expected. I thought the whole thing with (view spoiler) would be kept until near the end, so it would give appropriate time for Jason and Ben to connect. Well, that I didn't get. So yes, there was action with

I wanted to love this story so bad but sadly it didn't do it for me.
The story was too insta love for my liking, I understand some strong feelings specially given the circumstances Jason and Ben were in but still, Ben changed his whole life after less than a week with Jason.
My other issue is Maggie's character, she didn't read as an 8 year old, if you take away the little mentions of pouts she totally reads as much older child so that threw me off a bit.


BUT I have to admit that the epilogue wa

This book was wonderful. Pure Keira Andrews, which means it felt like a breath of fresh air. Which is weird to say when one of the main MC's daughter is kidnapped, but it was, because of the romance between Jason and Ben.

They had a rough patch in the middle/near the end, but they figure it out. I'm glad they didn't completely just dive into a relationship after knowing each other one week and after what Jason and Maggie went through, what they all went through. It felt natural

Road to the Sun by Keira Andrews is the story of Jason a 25-year-old single father, his eight-year-old daughter Maggie, and Ben a 41-year-old ranger. I was nervous about this book because the suspense is not my usual schtick, but I can't resist a KA book- she consistently delivers. RttS was no different.

In this book, Maggie was kidnapped while they're out hiking and a frantic search to find her ensues. Typically suspense plots bore me. I often find more telling than showing but that's far from

Keira Andrews’ easy storytelling style is on full display here. Once I started reading I didn’t want to stop and I devoured this story in two sittings.

At 25, Jason’s life revolves around raising his 8 year old daughter Maggie. He walked away from a privileged life and is working in a factory with no life outside of work and his daughter. He is determined to be the best father he can be and give his child the world which, at the moment, is a camping

Dreamy sigh.... Sorry, I'm still basking in the glow of that epilogue. (One of the best I've read in a while!!)

Keira Andrews has blown me away yet again. She is such a versatile writer. Whether she's writing about Amish boys or baseball players, the zombie apocalypse or two guys stranded on a desert island, she just gets me. She knows exactly what I need to have in a story to fall in love with her characters. It happens. every. time.

Here we have an age-gap romance between a sexy park ranger and

'Road to the Sun' tries to be many things simultaneously: An age gap romance, a thriller, a psychological story about PTSD and a rainbow family book.

To me, it all felt a bit too much. The PTSD was treated rather halfheartedly ('oh, and she saw a therapist for many years...') and the romance felt pretty rushed (like 'I buy a plane ticket and travel across the country for him, although I barely know him for more than a few days').

The grandparents were a whole new level of awkwardness too.

I loved this - it was warm, sweet and really beautiful. Something just connected with me and I couldn't put it down. Perhaps it was the loyalty of Jason as a young single dad and the vulnerability he showed when he finally let Ben in. Ben was a rock who really fell hard, and while I'm not a fan of insta-love this didn't have that cheesy vibe. Everything flowed so smoothly... it really made me smile ❤ ...more

5 Hearts? NO! ALL THE HEARTS! Including my less than perfect one because this book gets them all!!!

Okay. I am going to warn you right now, this will be one hell of a rambling review because this book has left me strung out. I finished it, less than 20 minutes ago and I already have over 2,000 words and notes that have been transcribed from my recordings of thoughts. I had to record them last night on my way to yoga and this morning as I drove my boys to school. There was no time to actually writ

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
