Always By Kindle Alexander

Always Cover
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.

This book has 3 things in it that I personally do not enjoy. Insta-love, over-the-years, and death. But despite that, I did still enjoy the book quite a bit.

The story started out with a bang, and I mean a huge bang. One that I was hoping was going to follow through the whole story, and I was a little disappointed that it didn’t. While I don’t like the over-the-years love stories, I can say that I did enjoy being able to follow Avery and Kane’s relationship from when they met until the end.

While Avery’s character was very in your face, right from the start, I liked Kane’s character so much better. It was amazing to be able to watch as Kane came to the realization that his love for Avery was still love, and was still perfectly fine to have.

The over-the-years also included many important and popular things that the couple did go through during the course of their relationship. Some of them were very realistic, but some of them were a bit far-fetched in my opinion.

I did like the ending of the story, because it’s very realistic and happens a lot with older couples. And couples who have been together for as long as Avery and Kane had been. I think that the ending was perfect for the story itself.

My only real complaint would be how quickly everything seemed to progress in the beginning. They went from meeting, to Avery almost stalking Kane, to them being together forever. All of that happened very quickly.

Despite that, I did still enjoy this story and I’m very glad that I took the lunge and read this story.

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.
