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.
Barnes & Noble:
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.

4 Bare Naked Stars ****
‘Always’ is a love story. It's M/M yes, but a love story still....
Avery is driven. Coming from a loving privileged family coming out was easy for him. Running for office not so much.
Kane is also driven. Ostracised by his religious family, he takes in an adopted 'family' who accepts him, in their wake.
For Avery meeting Kane is love at first sight. Kane feels the pull of attraction but is at first a little bewildered.
“Avery studied Kane, examining him as if he were being dissected under a microscope until he held Kane’s boxer’s out to him. “I’m shallow enough that I want to have sex with you anyway, but you need to tell me now if this is it between us. I want more than tonight, but if you don’t, tell me.”
As they're relationship develops they soon realise being in this type of relationship in the 70's will never be considered 'normal' yet normal is all they want.
“Do you understand what we are telling you? There is no way you would be supported if you ran as a gay man.”
“Dammit, Kane! I’m so sick of that look you get in your eyes whenever I suggest we do anything a normal couple would do. We’re gay, we’re in love, and we’re married. It’s not wrong. We’re not wrong!”
But their love is so strong; nothing can break them or keep them apart. This book made my angry, it made me sad, and it made me so happy. There will be tears, as the beginning and the end merge, blurring the lines...Ms Alexander is brave in the way she wrote the book, she made a brave and controversial decision in the ending but true love, well maybe that truly can never be broken........
