Release Blitz: Flash Rip by Keira Andrews

Flash Rip
by Keira Andrews
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2019

The most dangerous current is between them.

Training to be a lifeguard at an Australian beach is tough work, but Cody Grant loves a challenge. He spends long days in the sun and surf rescuing swimmers from treacherous rip currents while trying not to lust after senior lifeguard Liam Fox—who is deeply, painfully closeted.

Liam was supposed to be a football legend. Now in his mid-thirties, it’s been over a decade since his dream shattered along with his knee. Fans still recognize him regularly, and he's terrified his sexuality will be discovered and his conservative parents will reject him. He has strict rules to protect his secret and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Liam never acts on his need to surrender after being shamed for it years ago by the first and only man he trusted.

Out and proud Cody fascinates Liam—and tempts him to break all the rules.

Cody is practically half Liam's size and age, but has the confidence and compassion to take charge and give Liam the release, affection, and acceptance he desperately craves. But how long can a secret affair satisfy their hearts? As if saving lives isn’t hard enough, Cody faces his greatest challenge yet convincing Liam to trust him and find the courage to live out loud.

Flash Rip is an M/M gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring a slow burn, an age gap, scorching first times, and of course a happy ending.

The setting for this book is all sun, sand and hunky lifeguard, but the story is a bit sad to be honest. The older MC, Liam is deeply closeted. He don't even dare to hookup within the country. Okay, I understand why he is so paranoid, but seriously though, is depressing. In comes, the new trainee, Cody, who is young, out and proud. Cody had a crush on Liam since day one and naturally they hooked up, while keeping everything on the down low. Liam is a piece of work and Cody is so understanding and I don't know why I just don't feel much of their spark or chemistry. The great part of this book is their profession as lifeguard. I never know there are so much work and planning and strategy that went behind the scene. After reading this I have a whole new appreciate for lifeguard beside their appealing physique.

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.”
