I just did finish the last words of this book and my emotions are on overload right now. This book may be the most epic of love stories I have ever read. The love between these two characters is the deepest, most true of any love I have ever read about. Was their way easy?

This is my very first book by this writing duo. I just did finish the last words of this book and my emotions are on overload right now. This book may be the most epic of love stories I have ever read. The love between these two characters is the deepest, most true of any love I have ever read about. Was their way easy? No. But the love they shared was so strong, they could weather any storm, as long as they did it together. Avery Adams is thirty five years old. He’s the grandson of one of the most popular American Presidents that ever served in office. Avery has begun to climb the ladder himself and his popularity is growing. He has been approached to consider a run for the senate in his home state of Minnesota. The year is 1975. Avery hasn’t hidden his sexuality but in recent years tried to be more discreet with the men he hooks up with. But just as he’s getting ready to announce his candidacy, he goes to dinner in a popular upscale restaurant, and he saw him. His breath was stolen, there were no words, but his heart knew instantly that it was him, the one. Kane Dalton is thirty three years old. Kane was raised by a father that was a fire and brimstone preacher. When Kane admitted to his family that he was gay, his father threw him out, at age eighteen, with nothing but the clothes on his back. Some how over many years, Kane pulled himself up, and now was the owner of La Bella Luna, a beautiful Italian restaurant. This is his dream come true. The restaurant is his life and he works seven days a week which unfortunately doesn’t leave much time for a personal life. The night Avery Adams came in to La Bella Luna, Kane knew they had to do everything to make sure his visit was perfect. Little did he know that this was the night his life was going to be forever changed in ways he never could have imagined. “I know you’re meant for me. I know you’re the other half of my soul. We are meant to be together.” I loved that from the first moment, Avery was dedicated to winning Kane in any way possible. I loved the way that they faced every obstacle together. Their love was so strong. I believe their hearts were just waiting for each other. Can you believe my eyes are watering while trying to type this? Not only did they have to fight against the opinions of the public in general, they had to fight against what Kane’s own father had made him believe. But Avery knew Kane was it for him. And he knew that he would fight for him, for them. That the only outcome that was possible was that their future was together, as one. So before I completely fall apart, I will just say that if you want to read the most beautiful love story you have ever read, about two men whose love for each other has no limit, then read this book. A second book in the series, Forever, is due out in just a couple of weeks which will focus on their son, Robert. I will be reading this. I have to read this. And I look forward to much more by this author in my future. For more about this book and so many more, come and visit me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Carol...

When kindred souls meet, they are destined to be together, always. This is one of the most beautiful romances I have read in a long time. Avery and Kane have a forever kind of love. Always starts dramatically in present day, then takes us on a whirlwind journey of 40 years of love and romance. We go back to the very beginning. Where it first began in Minnesota. Avery Adams is on track to be the next senator of Minnesota. His family has a strong political history and he is following in their footsteps. While going to a popular restaurant, he meets the man who will change his life forever. From the moment they meet, Avery knows there is something about Kane Dalton. He can’t take his eyes off of him. “You’re beautiful. That was my only thought when I looked at you in the restaurant on that first day. You took my breath away. You stole my words. I couldn’t speak.” Kane Dalton comes from a family of devout Christians, his father is a pastor. Although Kane is estranged from his family, he still loves them. His beliefs have been engraved in him since he was a child. He has morals, he still believes, but his beliefs conflict with who he is. The more he is with Avery, the more Avery convinces him that they are right. There is nothing wrong about their love. They were meant to be together. “Avery, my God doesn’t believe in us,” Kane said. “But he does. I know he does. I know you’re meant for me. I know you’re the other half of my soul. We are meant to be together.” Avery has many tough choices to make early on in their relationship. Although he has a supportive mother and friends, America isn’t really ready for an openly gay politician. Especially one who isn’t willing to hide who he is or his partner. Avery and Kane go through their fair share of obstacles as time goes on, but they always remember what is most important in life. Each other. When it comes to Kane and Avery, I can’t even begin to tell you which man I loved more. I immediately felt connected to the both of them. They were different, but both so amazing in their own ways. Avery was the outgoing, handsome and confident man. Kane was a little more reserved and almost shy at times, but he was the sweetest man. I loved them separate, but most of all I loved them together. Even though they started out with a little insta-love, it worked. It worked because their feelings were real and they worked at their relationship. Everything felt real and after the beginning I never felt that things moved too fast between them. I’ve read my fair share of m/m books, and this was an exceptional one. I don’t want to say this is one of the best m/m books I’ve read lately, even though it is. I want to say it is one of the best romances I’ve read lately. Even friends that don’t read m/m, I’ve been recommending this to them. Kane and Avery’s love was unconditional and timeless. I was moved by this story. It was heartfelt, beautiful and emotional. The writing was superb. The ending left me in tears, it was heart wrenching, but it showed how meant to be they were. This is a story I would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful romance story. *ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

    Oh boy. Okay, this book didn't work for me on almost every level. 1) I've read these characters before in every Kindle Alexander book. The exact same things that annoyed me in Up In Arms and The Current Between Us (and in Double Full) annoyed me here. Every single Kindle Alexander book starts with a supposed alpha male type character who doesn't need anyone and by the 20% mark of the book he's turned into a whiny, needy thirteen year old girl. Every. Single. One. In this book Avery goes from a p Oh boy. Okay, this book didn't work for me on almost every level. 1) I've read these characters before in every Kindle Alexander book. The exact same things that annoyed me in Up In Arms and The Current Between Us (and in Double Full) annoyed me here. Every single Kindle Alexander book starts with a supposed alpha male type character who doesn't need anyone and by the 20% mark of the book he's turned into a whiny, needy thirteen year old girl. Every. Single. One. In this book Avery goes from a playboy to declaring this man he's never even talked to the man of his dreams on practically the same page. What is that? And then after that he's manipulative and needy and so damn cheesy I could not roll my eyes any harder. And also, just like that, Kane turns from this competent business man into the classic trope of the Too Stupid To Live character. He's insecure, he's hesitant, he needs Avery to tell him when it's okay to breath? I was already checked out by the 20% mark and I only read on...well I'll get to that later. 2) The massive jumps in time didn't work for me at all. We got about 30 pages of Avery and Kane's courtship. Avery decides he wants to have a child, we have the only real point of conflict in the entire book, it lasts for two hours and then they have babies. They bring those babies home and then we fast forward to nine years later. What?! How am I supposed to care about this family or even this couple when their lives are just glossed over? I'm beginning to think that this book should have instead been a series of books because I never connected with Kane and Avery and I definitely never cared about their children. 3) The cheese...oh, the cheese. If I read "my mister" one more time I was going to throw my iPad across the room. And I'm not a fan of skipping over large chunks of their lives just to get back to another sex scene where at the end Kane and Avery tell each other how they love each so much and for always. Boring! You can't just tell me how much these people love each other, I need to see it. I need to see them dealing with the everyday challenges of life which this book largely skipped. 4) if I can make one plea to Kindle Alexander, it's to start writing her male characters like men. I need her characters to have some integrity. I just can't believe that love changes these characters so much that they're no longer the people they were before, and even worse, they turn into girls. Great authors who write men as men would be the male authors in this fandom or Abigail Roux or Heidi Cullinan off the top of my head. Write a strong male lead and then KEEP HIM a strong male lead. Write an independent type who doesn't do relationships and then make him actually struggle with his first desire to be in one. Don't just have him go from the strong, independent type to declaring his love in a heartbeat. It's not realistic. Secondly, okay angst is okay. It's okay for characters to have disagreements that last longer than a couple of pages. In fact, it makes the story more interesting and more believable. 5) Kindle Alexander became an author that I immediately fell in love with after reading Texas Pride. Unfortunately, every book after that has suffered the exact same problems. I like her and I'd like to see her grow as an author. This will probably never get read because she seems to be specifically trolling for five star reviews but I feel that it's worth being said. I think she's a good story teller but she's got to stop telling the same story with the same characters. I auto-bought this book but I'll think long and hard about reading another Kindle Alexander book if nothing is going to change.

    Well, after just finishing Always by Kindle Alexander… I am totally drained, a little shell shocked, with the whole red, puffy eye look going on, because I cried buckets!!! OMG!

That ending!!! …and I will say nothing further on the conclusion of this book because it’s perfect and needs to be experienced first hand… just know that you need tissues… lots of them! Always is an incredibly moving and heartfelt jo Well, after just finishing Always by Kindle Alexander… I am totally drained, a little shell shocked, with the whole red, puffy eye look going on, because I cried buckets!!! OMG! Kindle Alexander ripped the heart from my chest before lovingly putting me back together. That ending!!! …and I will say nothing further on the conclusion of this book because it’s perfect and needs to be experienced first hand… just know that you need tissues… lots of them! Always is an incredibly moving and heartfelt journey… A lifetime of happiness is all we can ever hope for, and to be able to share it with someone you love, well, that’s the stuff of dreams. This book is escapism at it best, it’s that happily ever after we all yearn for, a love story pure and simple and one that will without doubt melt your heart, beautifully executed and poignantly delivered with such love and care by Kindle Alexander it was like being enveloped in your favourite snuggly blanket. There is no angst in this book, no misunderstandings for the sake of it, Avery and Kane are perfect for each other and Always is all about the love and romance, a connection and bond so deep that they can barely breath without each other. And Kindle makes no apologies for it in the writing, as if to say… “Hell, I’m going to write a love story that is soppy and romantic and it will melt your heart, but do you know what… that’s good and we’re going to make a bloody good job of it too.” …and do you know what, they did! The start of this book was the total hook for me, it has impact and opens on the present day with Avery about to go into surgery for a heart condition. What becomes immediately apparent is the love these two men have for each other and the life bond they have formed over the last forty years… I was drawn in by Avery and Kane, wanting to know their lives and how they got there, and reminiscing in the waiting room of the hospital with his daughter Amber… Kane tells us their story. Kane is a Restaurateur and Avery a Lawyer with political ambitions, both men are professional and confident, sure of themselves and their abilities, both using a persona to convey that confidence to the world… Yet, in each others company they become adolescent teenagers with the whole tummy tingling, sweat inducing, tongue-tied-flustered thing going on, with no control over their bodies reactions or the sizzling electricity that arcs between them. Both of them are as confused as fuck as to what’s going on, but the intensity and raw passion of it is something neither of them can restrain, unable even to recognise their own feelings for what they are… yet knowing it is something so much more than mere physical attraction. I am no fan of insta love, I am usually all about the angst and drama, get my blood pumping and adrenaline going and I’m happy, but sometimes a book or an author comes along and does it right. I had no eye rolling moments here, why? you might ask, well I’ll tell you… it’s all about the writing and the believability factor, and Kindle makes me believe these two men are soul mates, destined to be together. The story itself, as I explained is escapism, is it believable, no, it’s fiction and it can be whatever it wants to be… but their love is never in question! I was like their cheerleader on the side lines, encouraging them every step of the way, whooping at every milestone in their lives. So many times we read a book, so invested in the characters, we want to know of their lives beyond that HEA… How did their lives turn out? Is it a love that lasts a lifetime? You become desperate and make up your own scenarios… but with Kane and Avery, well, we get to live a lifetime with them… and now I want to cry again!!! Kane and Avery’s story is just beautiful, there are some great secondary characters, namely Paulie who will also worm his way into your heart. It’s funny and quirky, you will both laugh and cry, there are plenty of aww moments and a few where you would like to do some serious damage… that would be Kane’s hypocritical bigoted family. The sex as always with Kindle is plentiful and HOT!!! and I could go on and on about this book, but do you know what… the synopsis does a pretty good job of telling you what the book is about, any more than that and you would miss out on enjoying the first hand experience for yourselves and I really don’t want to spoil that for you. But be assured Kindle Alexander fans will love this book, they have delivered what I would call a true romance that even those readers like me, that can be a bit sceptical at times will love… be assured there is nothing cheesy or too saccharine about Always.

To me, Always was so very different from Kindle Alexander's other books. emotional, more thought provoking, more real. Not to take anything away from her books, but this one really tore me up. Always is the story of Kane Dalton and Avery Adams. Kane a devout Christian, shunned by his parents when he was 18 and "came out". He was saved by his mentor and father figure Paulie and is now a successful restaurant owner. Avery is the son and grandson of politicians..forced to keep his preferences hidden. He is a lawyer, with political aspirations. He moves to Minnesota and meets Kane at La Bella Luna, his restaurant and it was love at first sight. Now, normally I am not a fan of insta-love. And this was definitely insta-love so I was worried about how the rest of the story would go. But honestly, this story was more about Kane and Avery's life post marriage. About their struggles to be a "normal" gay couple, in a world where being gay isn't always accepted. To have the family that they both desire, the life they both long for. Avery and Kane were soulmates. They were each others always . There wasn't a lot of angst and drama....this was just a really touching, beautiful journey of two people falling in love....their path through life. The highs, the lows, the love and the loss. I can't say much else without giving anything away, it's best to read it and experience it yourself. By the end of Kane and Avery's journey... Always begins with Kane and Avery meeting and falling in love...and follows their lives over the next forty years. If you're a fan of MM romance, and Kindle Alexander then I definitely recommend giving this one a shot. While it was more emotionally driven it still had plenty of the Kindle Alexander spice. Another great read!!! ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

Elsbeth let slip something about this book last night and I harassed her til she told me how this book would end. And I’m so glad I did. Not that it helped, I was already too invested in the characters to not care if I read it myself or simply heard about it. There are some things I don’t like to read about.

Elsbeth let slip something about this book last night and I harassed her til she told me how this book would end. And I’m so glad I did. Not that it helped, I was already too invested in the characters to not care if I read it myself or simply heard about it. There are some things I don’t like to read about. I love angsty books if one of the MC’s has had a very hard life and is even suicidal. Because with all that hurt comes the comfort. And the comfort is so goooood. But I hate unnecessary angst. The miscommunication kind. I also fiercely dislike the breaking up for your own good scenario.. no thank you. And cheating is a massive no no in my books. I can read about it but it will annoy me to no end and take away my pleasure of reading the book. (None of these things occur in this book. I was simply mentioning them to tell you about my dislikes.) (I must warn you, what I’m going to say now is a MAJOR spoiler for this book. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t read it. I will use spoiler tags.) But with this book I have reached my utter limit. I will NEVER read a book about this subject. Because it will stay with me for a long long time. I can’t read about (view spoiler)[ one of my MC’s (or both) of them dying. I can’t and I won’t. I understand that this book spans the entire lives of Avery and Kane (well, since they met). They are soul mates and go through a lot together. I felt it, the desperation with which they needed each other. Even when I didn’t know how it would end it had a bittersweet taste to it already. So when this book starts with Avery in the hospital when they are in their sixties, I never would have thought it would end with him dying. What Elsbeth has told me Kane can’t handle it and is so heartbroken he goes to the cemetery where he sees Avery waiting for him to join him, so he does. But they do leave their (adult) children behind. It is simply too much for me to handle. I am even now crying while writing this review. Of course I see the beauty of this, but it has too much of an impact on me. (hide spoiler)] I can’t let these kind of stories go. I live the books I read and this is one thing that will stay with me for a long long time. Too long. I’m way too sensitive to read about these things. Now I need something fluffy.

The journey I got to experience was so beautiful, but also caused me great pain. This book follows the lives of two men. Two men who fall in love and end up sharing their lives together. We get to see their highs and lows and even their middles. We see them fall in lust and love, experience loss and blessings. It was just truly a beautiful story. The book starts off in the present, where we meet Avery and Kane for the first time. I didn't know anything about these men, but that didn't stop me from getting teary eyed for them. You could already feel the love that these two had for one another. Then the story goes back in time into the 1970's where Kane is retelling how he met Avery. Avery Adams is working his way into becoming a Senator, just like his father. He is a confident wealthy gay man who goes after what he wants. He didn't seem too interested in any kind of relationship that lasts. He does one night stands, that is all he has the time for. But that all changes the moment he goes into the restaurant La Bella Luna and meets the restaurant owner, Kane Dalton. Avery has never felt so drawn to another person in his entire life. He doesn't know Kane but already he knows that Kane is his and was meant to be his. The wooing quickly begins and he won't quit until Kane says yes. They were opposites in most ways but together, they just worked beautifully. ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ● "Make no mistake, I will romance you, Kane Dalton, just not now. Right now, I need to fuck you. Fuck you hard, and soft, and then do it all over again" ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ●  ● Kane Dalton comes from a family with Christian beliefs. His father was a pastor, so his coming out experience was not a great one. He gets kicked out of home with nothing to his name and becomes estranged from his family. Kane still practices what he has learned from his childhood and believes in their moral code. Because of this, sometimes Avery and Kane didn't see eye to eye all the time. But they made it work. Kane falls hard for Avery, even though he was reluctant to. Avery shows him that loving each other is not wrong. Kane was a bit on the shy side and sweet, but that didn't mean he didn't voice his opinions. Be was strong in a quiet way and loved whole heartedly. He was perfect for Avery. Boy, did Avery make me melt and swoon hard. He was a romantic and just so freaking sweet. I loved the man. I loved the way Avery treated Kane and how he cared and protected him, and vice versa. I loved how hard Avery worked to get Kane. I'm not at all surprised how Kane fell for Avery, because he can be very persuasive. I loved seeing this couple grow and learn each other inside and out. They become strong as a couple, especially during a time where they weren't accepted. Avery wasn't afraid to show his love for Kane out in the open. Kane wasn't as confident about showing their relationship to the world. With Avery becoming a Senator, their lives became more exposed and the media loved every moment of it.

There were moments where they thought they wouldn't make it, but in the end they would make it work. Because they were each other's lives and they didn't want to give each other up. They also get great blessings and have many moments of joy and happiness. They were lucky to be surrounded by people that loved and supported them. They all made one big unconventional family, but a family nonetheless. I loved it and the secondary characters. This was my first Kindle Alexander book and I am glad I decided to read it because it has become a favourite of mine. It was very well written, and the story grabbed me not wanting to let go. I fell in love with both Avery and Kane, and the long lasting romance they had. There were some really steamy moments that helped show the unbreakable connection between them. The ending goes back to the present and it was very hard for me to read. This book made me cry so hard. Rivers and rivers of tears fell from eyes reading the last portion of the book. But it was all worth it. It was beautiful and heartfelt and I don't regret reading it. At. All. One of the best romance books I have read in a while. So, that should tell you that I think you definitely should read this one. I loved it and was happy with the conclusion. Just beautiful!

    If you have even a hint of romance in your soul, you will cry like a little bitch toward the end.

The middle part about the kids was fine, but did about as much for me as the whole political aspects of the book. Yawn, next.

I would have enjoyed the middle better if the story had maybe shown Kane's siblings coming around and being freed from the grip of their cruel pastor father, after he finally got what was coming to him -- and then some. "Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord" and all that malarkey. ;- ) I did find the number of sex scenes to be slightly cumbersome after a while and the last few pages to be a bit corny, but that's mostly just me nit picking at "what if's", as it was a very good story that I enjoyed quite a bit.

I want you right here" "Make no mistake, I will romance you, Kane Dalton, just not now. Right now, I need to fuck you. Fuck you hard, and soft, and then do it all over again" "Shit!How can I say no with you touching me like that?" If you are into M/M, I def would recommend this brilliant emotional read! Ciao!

This is the story of the relationship between Avery Adams and Kane Dalton The relationship between these two spans almost 40 years. Their story begins in 1975, when Avery goes to eat at Kane's restaurant, La Bella Luna. Avery is an up and coming politician in the area and comes from a long line of politicians. Kane feels he has done something wrong and looks to set it right by sending him flowers. Little does he know that Avery was stunned by Kane and has fallen head over heels instantly. Kane, a devout Christian, was banished from his family by his preacher father when he admitted to being gay. He met up with Paulie, who unofficially adopted him, and helped him learn how to cook and together they worked at building the restaurant together, La Bella Luna. His boyfriend Brian, just broke up with him and he is considering using Avery as a possible rebound. Avery has other plans however. Sidenote: I'm not a big insta-love fan but the development of their relationship and over time I overlooked the fact that they got into a relationship so fast. I will say I had to remind myself that this was the seventies and many of the things that happened were acceptable then. Anyways they get married a year later and we get to experience many of the trials and tribulations they experience as a gay married couple as well as with Avery's political career. We go through the good, the bad, and the sad. The sex scenes between these two.....MY MY MY.... Honestly this was just an overall beautiful story about how the love of two men overcoming different obstacles that are thrown their way. The many people who remained in their life and supported them I absolutely loved. "You're my always, I love you so much." I would just like to say, Kindle Alexander Also (view spoiler)[ I knew it was gonna happen but still WHY!!!! (hide spoiler)] If you are a fan of MM stories then should you read this book?

I don't perform any sort of complex literary critique, I can cope with grammatical and spelling mistakes to a degree, I can relate to stories that are outside the norm - it is all about how the story makes me feel. With this one, I was somewhat prepared for the emotions. The social media hype - Goodreads, Facebook - let me know that I could expect tears and the introduction supported that big time! But as the story started to unfold, I doubted what I'd heard. I'd stayed away from reading reviews but this was an emotional tear-jerker, wasn't it? Don't get me wrong, Avery and Kane were great characters. They had so much love and the story was compelling as their love supported them through the American politics landscape. But I wasn't feeling anything exceptional about these obviously, very much in love guys. But somehow I found they had sneaked up on me because surely, only characters you were deeply invested in could cause such tears! I'm not talking about getting a bit weepy, I'm talking about half an hour of solid tears, multiple tissues, blocked nose and a headache. Not to mention the teenage daughter who thought something serious had gone wrong! So yes, this book is about the ending. It is about the pure emotional response. It is about love and soul mates. But the ending isn't exactly what you expect. Read it - I dare you! A copy of this book was provided by the author in return for my honest review.

    I read the first chapter and I'm sorry to say this is not the book for me. I don't like reading sad stories. Neither do I like meeting characters at the end of their life and then flashing back to their youth. It makes me sad that the good times are only memories that we are reading now.

    This book was incredibly sweet. A couple that were definitely soulmates. It was a good testament to love and a healthy relationship. I loved Kane and Avery, how they complimented each other and added value to the other’s journey. I hope Society is here and couples like Kane and Avery can live in love and happiness.

Avery now has his goals in line and a very detailed road to his political goals, that is until he meets Kane Dalton. Kane Dalton's life is anything but perfect! His father is a strict Baptist minister, who kicks him out of the house and the family due to Kane's questioning his own sexual orientation. Kane has made a name for himself by owning a very successful restaurant. His hands are full with juggling the restaurant and his long term relationship with his boyfriend. Kane has struggled with being gay his whole life with the strict religious upbringing he has had to deal with. As soon as I started reading ALWAYS, my heart was being ripped apart in such an emotional and beautiful story and I was completely hooked from the very beginning. The ending of this book was the most heart wrenching and so amazingly written, that your heart will completely belong to Avery and Kane for a very long time. I won't give anything away as everyone and I mean everyone needs to read ALWAYS and experience the amazing writing of Kindle Alexander. One of my favorite parts in the book is how Kane deals with being gay and what that means for him in the afterlife as he is torn from what he feels in his heart and what he was told his entire life about being gay. This is a huge concern for many gay men so I am so proud that the author chose to deal with this in her book and she handled it so well and very realistic. The instalove part of this book was so realistically written and I never for one minute doubted their pure romantic love for each other. This book covers a span of many years and the love that Avery and Kane shared was beautifully written and I for one couldn't get enough of their relationship. The author did such a great job with the main characters of Avery and Kane as well as the supporting characters such as Paulie, he was the father figure for Kane and I loved his character as he was a true friend. Be prepared to cry and cry while reading this pure love story of Avery and Kane's journey of self discovery, love, lust, heart wrenching scenes and hot and I mean hot male-male sex. I highly recommend this 5 star beautifully written story! If you love a good, heart pounding love story than ALWAYS is the book for you! Kindle Alexander has done it again by creating one of the most amazing and beautifully written epic stories! I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Coming from the blurb, I wouldn’t have guessed how the book will start and how the story will unfold. It was far from what I’d imagined. It was a rollercoaster ride especially at the end. And this book kind of reminded me of “The Notebook.” It’s not the whole forgetting thing. It’s the love that is so raw and intense. Avery Adams, gorgeous, charismatic is back in his ancestral town with the plan to run for Senate. For that reason alone and his sexuality in question, he shouldn’t be doing occasional hookups. But that won’t stop him. He only needs to be discreet. But the moment he lays his eyes on Kane Dalton, his plan is thrown out the window and he flips. Kane is a devout Christian and tries to live through its teachings. He was kicked out of their house at the age of eighteen after he comes out to his parents and with the help of Paulie, he gets back to his own feet, becoming a successful restaurateur. I loved Kane! He had so much compassion toward his family even after what they did to him. I can’t imagine. His father I can understand, but Kane’s mother? She should have loved her son wholeheartedly. Luckily, they don’t appear much in the story. I also loved how the story stretches out throughout their lives with so many sweet moments. It was an amazing journey for Avery and Kane; how they build a family and cherish each one of them. And it shows that there’s nothing wrong in children being raised by gay parents. And that’s one of the things I liked about this book, the family aspect; their close bonding as a family plus Paulie’s character who becomes more of a father to Kane. The end was emotional. It made my throat tighten and my tears to fall but it was still fulfilling for me. I want to read more about Robert too. I hope he will have a book of his own. This is the second book I have read from Kindle Alexander, and it was just as emotional as the first. Reviewed for Sidlove

    This will appeal to a particular kind of gay romance reader. While the writing was solid, the story left me a little bored. Too many "[his] kisses were what wet dreams were made of and not enough Gawd, I just wanna fuck you raw! for my taste. But that's strictly a personal opinion.

    1.5 Stars This one was a disappointment. I love Kindle Alexander and I continue to be a fan of her work but this book was a bust for me. First off, we start 40 years into Avery and Kane's relationship and - it's fairly obvious - that we're being set up for an emotional roller coaster type of ending.

It was butterflies and roses and sugary sweetness. It was too much! I noted in one of my status updates that by 43%, the word "love" or some form of it had been used 77 times already. Ugh. No thanks. The story tracks 'milestones' in Avery and Kane's life. But rather than showcasing the development of their relationship, the book read more like an unveiling (read: telling) of different episodes. It was boring and I ended up skimming the second half just to finish. Bottom line: Not for me.
