Synopsis:

Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

Easy isn’t even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton’s life after his father, a devout southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.

About the Author:

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!

Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.

Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.

Krystle’s 4½ Star Review

In my opinion Always by Kindle Alexander was the epitome of the perfect love story.  It didn’t have a lot of the characteristics I usually enjoy in a book but I ended up loving it just as much, if not more than some of my favorites.

It wasn’t an action-filled read with lots of twists and turns but I flew through it, turning the pages as quickly as I could.

It wasn’t a complete angst fest but the emotions that it ripped out of me were outstanding.

It wasn’t one of those books that take you on a wild ride from start to finish but when it was over I felt like I had just embarked on a beautiful, enlightening journey.

It didn’t make me want to throw my kindle at the wall but instead made me want to hold it close to my heart and never forget the words that I was reading.

I felt a very strong connection to the characters in Always. Kindle Alexander created characters that I just couldn’t help but love and admire. Avery and Kane are both such strong, remarkable men that I loved every minute I was reading about them. Both are hardworking, accomplished men that have the biggest hearts. They find each other and throw their whole heart and soul into their relationship but never lose sight of their lives outside of each other. They work to find the balance between compromise and sacrifice and I truly admire their relationship.

I don’t want to give away too many details about this story since I believe it is a beautiful journey portraying the lives of two wonderful men that everyone should experience for themselves. The dynamic between these two men is something everyone dreams of finding and I feel as though there is no way anyone could dislike this story.

Always was a beautifully written, heartwarming story with captivating characters that I’ll always remember. This was the first male/male romance that I have ever picked up and it will definitely not be the last. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a wonderful love story to warm your heart.
