He´d give his life to protect the president´s son. But he never expected to risk his heart. Growing up gay in the White House hasn´t been easy for Rafael Castillo. Codenamed ´´Valor´´ by the Secret Service, Rafa feels anything but brave as he hides in the closet and tries to stay below the radar in his last year of college. His father´s presidency is almost over, and he just needs to stick to his carefully crafted plan. Once his family´s out of the spotlight, he can be honest with his conservative parents about his sexuality and his dream of being a chef. It´s definitely not part of Rafa´s plan to get a new Secret Service agent who´s a walking wet dream, but he´s made it this long keeping his desires to himself. Besides, it´s not like Shane Kendrick would even look at him twice if it wasn´t his job. Shane´s worked his way up through the Secret Service ranks, and while protecting the president´s shy, boring son isn´t his dream White House assignment, it´s an easy enough task since no one pays Rafa much attention. He discovers there´s a vibrant young man beneath the timid public shell, and while he knows Rafa has a crush on him, he assures himself it´s harmless. Shane´s never had room for romance in his life, and he´d certainly never cross that line with a protectee. Keeping Rafa safe at any cost is Shane´s mission. But as Rafa gets under his skin, will they both put their hearts on the line? Contains mature themes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Iggy Toma.
