Always by Kindle Alexander 

Always Blog Tour Banner 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.

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.

Our 4 Star Review

Starting out in present day we see Avery in the hospital about to go into surgery and Kane there waiting for the outcome. When their daughter asks for the story of their love we are brought back 40 years to how they met in Kane's restaurant when Avery just moved into the state to begin his political career. This story spans all 40 years of their love and life together and the family and careers they've made together in a time when being Gay was something you were in the shadows not in public, but they never hid and were always together.

Avery is a strong alpha male lead who's happy with how he is and isn't afraid to show it throughout the story when Kane was down or subdued he was there and strong for the man he loved. Always thinking of his family first and doing everything in his power to protect them.

Kane was a quitter man very devout in his beliefs and you see how much it affects him throughout the story especially how his family acted about him coming out of the closet, being truly despicable in the way they treated him. Seeing Kane come out of his shell as he learns the love Avery has for him will always be there and watching him shine with happiness at finding his soul mate you truly fall in love with him as well as the story.

Watching the life of these two men and seeing their happiness and struggles you truly come to feel like your a part of their world happy when they are angry with them and sad as the story comes to its end. I felt like I was right there in the story a part of it throughout and with as much as you learn about the characters you become invested in them. I loved seeing this story's timeline and how it all ended. Side note make sure you have a whole box of tissues for the last few chapters you'll need them!!
