Review & Two Release Day Giveaways - Always by Kindle Alexander

Read my review of Always by Kindle Alexander.  I love this beautiful m/m romance.  TWO separate giveaways.   There is a blog tour giveaway (Coach purse, 3 monogrammed Always bath towels, Coach umbrella and tote).  There is also a scavenger hunt giveaway at the end of this post.  Good luck!


Title: Always
Author: Kindle Alexander
Release: March 11, 2014

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.



Author Bio:
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.

Review of Always by Kindle Alexander
AlwaysAlways by Kindle Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ARC kindly provided by in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spoiler-free.  4.00 Stars. HEA.  No cliffhanger/standalone.

Always is a heartfelt love story that chronicles the lives of two men who meet and fall in insta-love in the 70’s. Avery is an up and coming politician and Kane is a sexy restaurant owner. During their 40 year relationship the couple navigates many of the highs and lows that most couples face while trying to balance a relationship, career and family.

Always starts out kind of steamy in the insta-love stage and then the young couples relationship moves in a more realistic cadence. There is no emotional roller coaster, love triangle or crazy drama in this book. This story is the kind of stuff dreams are made of….that kind of love you are lucky to experience at least once in a lifetime.     Please do yourself a favor and grab a box of tissues for the tear jerker ending.  Bravo Kindle Alexander and thanks for the Kindle Crack!  I love men who love men.

FYI – also check out Double Full by Kindle Alexander (this book happens  to be one of my favorite smutastic m/m books ever…just sayin)!
